Cook Told Apple’s Workers that the Company has Big Plans for 2014

Dec 25 2013, 8:30am CST | by

Apple’s CEO Cook promised his employees that in 2014 there will be a lot that 'customers are going to love'

In an email to Apple’s employees, Tim Cook wished them a happy holiday season, thanking them for the contributions to the ongoing successes of the company. He also stressed Apple’s efforts toward improving diversity, saying that “We know that equality and diversity make our company and our society stronger, so we've urged the U.S. Congress to support workplace protections against discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. We are also laser focused on our contribution to several environmental initiatives and we will increase our efforts even more in this area in the future."

The part of his address to the employees that most interested the observers and analysts is his mention of the big things that Apple has planned for 2014. That added the fuel to the ongoing speculation that Apple plans to introduce a range of new product next year. He wrote: "We have a lot to look forward to in 2014, including some big plans that we think customers are going to love."

When asked during a conference call by several analysts what could consumers and investors expect from Apple next, Cook only said to expect "surprises."

The most frequent speculation about Apple's next year’s plans are focused on the wearable "iWatch" and the Apple television. The rumors and speculations are supported by Apple’s multiple patents and company acquisitions. They together indicate that Apple is working on one or even both products. 

Another possible new product is a refreshed MacBook that could potentially replace the current 11-inch MacBook Air. According to the analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will come out with an ultra-slim clamshell device, possibly with a Retina display.
