What is Apple Coming Up With in 2014?

Tim Cook announced Apple’s breaking new grounds in the next year and speculations are that it will be iWatch or iTV

With not so impressive results reported for the last quarter, Apple evidently knows that it is high time that they come up with something really ground-breaking. Something they have not done since the original iPad.

With the iPad, Apple has invented a completely new product category, almost reinventing the use of computers. Nothing remotely similar came out of Apple since. Of course, hundreds of gradual improvements of all Apple’s competitive devices such as smartphones, tablets and super-thin notebooks are expected and embraced by the consumers.

The glimpse of what is to be expected in the next year came from the Apple’s CEO Tim Cook, who obliquely announced the company’s future. He said that Apple can use its skills in producing products in categories and areas in which they are not present today. What that means exactly is now a matter of intense speculations.

Apple’s “iWatch” is a favorite possible new out-of-the box product. Filing in Japan for "iWatch" Trademark in June this year shows that iWatch is probably more than just flirting with the idea and very probably something that is already well under way.

Apple’s recent patent for the future 3-D interface,  known as “Project Looking Glass” is another clear indication that iWatch is  under way.   But, wearable computing and new kind of user interface is being developed by others too. Is our living room Apple’s next playground? What could Apple bring to the world of TVs? Probably set top boxes and various other systems that would link with our other igadgets. Other innovations that Apple would probably combine with its new TV, such as cloud computing and technology for motion gesture, would make it true Apple solution.

Common platform integration seems to be the future battleground between Apple and the competitors. Apple is ready for it with a 64-bit operating system and with processors that will allow implementation across many devices and systems, from tablets to wearable computing and TV.

According to Tim Cook, Apple is confident about its ability to expand into new areas. The resources and tools are there, but is there a vision to go ahead of the crowd again?
