Apple’s plans to blow us away

Apple plans to blow us away with plans for future products. What plans? Well, this is Apple, so we don’t have very much of an idea. But here’s some tiny shreds of ideas we do have.

 

In the annual investor’s meeting this morning,  CEO Tim Cook said he was “rolling the dice” on some future products that will “blow you away.”

 

So there’s the blow you away part.
Then he said that one of Apple’s goals is to reduce the price of the 2018 Retina MacBook Air, (currently at $1,200) and that  there’s a “long, great roadmap” of “fantastic” products on the horizon.

 

We’re thinking Airpods 2, possibly in new colors and with wireless charging and Siri functionality, and something WAY more exciting is the prospect of augmented reality smart glasses based on some recent patent filings. Some are still hopeful of a full self driving vehicle, but we’re not so sure about that now, after Apple recently laid off a bunch of folk in that department.

 

We can also likely expect a new entertainment streaming service and news service being unveiled in the next couple of months.

 

On another note, during the call, Tim Cook also advised that Apple is well on its way towards meeting the goal it set in 2016, which was to double its $25 billion revenue by 2020.

 

That’s a whole ‘lotta apples.
