Apple: We’ve got a “very busy fall”


During Apple’s third quarter earnings call earlier today, Apple’s CFO Peter Oppenheimer said that the company will have a “very busy fall”. He however did not provide any other details, and said that he’d like to “leave it there and go into more detail in October,” which is when Apple will announce Q4 2013 financial results.

Things have been relatively quiet in the first half, other than the refreshed MacBook Airs, Apple hasn’t launched any new product this year.

Apple’s CEO Tim Cook said that the company’s new catalyst will be new products and new services, both in current product categories and in new categories.

Apple is widely expected to launch the 7th generation iPhone, 5th generation iPad, the 2nd generation iPad mini and refreshed MacBook Pros later this year.

It remains to be seen if Apple will launch the rumored budget iPhone (new product in current product category) and the iWatch smartwatch (new product category).

A recent analyst report claims that Apple will launch the iPad 5 and the cheaper iPhone in early September, followed by the iPhone 5S in later September, and Retina iPad mini in early 2014.
