Another day, another prediction for Apple’s new products. This one from Cadie Thompson on CNBC:
The low-cost iPhone will have plastic casing, a 4-inch display and internal specs below those of the iPhone 5 or 5S, the analyst wrote in his note. Apple is likely to exclude some software features, such as the Siri voice-recognition system, on the less expensive product, which probably will be priced at about $300
What of iPad?
Apple’s iPad Mini will likely be updated to have a higher-resolution display
From analyst Gene Munster:
More recent conversations with people close to major TV and panel manufacturers give us 90 percent confidence that the TV is on Apple’s road map. As in the past, the exact timing of the TV remains a wild card, putting our confidence that the TV actually ships in the first half of 2014 at 70 percent.
Munster has been predicting an iTV since 2009.
Apple CEO Tim Cook in May:
I see [wearables] as a very key branch of the tree… I think from a mainstream point of view, [glasses as wearable computing devices] are difficult to see. I think the wrist is interesting. The wrist is natural.
Meanwhile, the stock price is up.
