Future Apple Products & Services Will “Blow You Away”: Tim Cook

In his speech, Cook highlighted that Apple is planning to double its revenue from Services business in 2020 from approximately $25 billion in 2016.

In addition to the Services, Tim Cook also spoke about Apple’s product categories. Company’s primary focus is to reduce the price of the MacBook Air laptop, which is available at $1200.

Moreover, Apple has a “long, great roadmap of fantastic” products related to Apple Watch and AirPods. Tim Cook indicated that the company would introduce more health features in its smartwatch.

Since iPhone sales witnessed low uptake in 2018, investors expect Apple to launch something big. The slump in iPhone sales led Apple’s first holiday-quarter decline since 2001.

In his address, Cook mentioned augmented reality, which can change the picture for the company. Apple is working on a pair of augmented reality glasses.

Simultaneously, the company is also serious about its Services business growth and increasing sales of Apple Watch and AirPods.

In its efforts to make overall progress, Apple acquired 18 companies in 2018, and there are more acquisitions in the offing.

When investors asked questions about privacy, diversity, and politics, Tim Cook took a jibe at Facebook and Google. Cook was censorious about the two companies as they build user data profiles.

On the same line, Cook assured that Apple is in favor of imposing stricter laws against such practice.

Summing up…

From what Bloomberg reported about Tim Cook’s speech, we can sum up that Apple is more focused on the development of wearables (smartwatch and AirPods). Furthermore, the tech giant will surely invest more in its Services business in the future.
