Amid the escalating slowdown and the grim looking future that doesn't seem to offer any respite from the recent slump, Apple is all set to host its showpiece event that generally sets the perfect tone for its upcoming software and hardware devices-creating enviable euphoria around yet-to-arrive products. Eventually, that plays a significant role in the success of Apple devices.
As the most successful product-iPhone– ever made by the Cupertino-based company has seen a sudden drop in both popularity and fortune (as per the latest data.) WWDC 2016 is going to be extremely crucial for Tim Cook, who had never before faced with such an enormous challenge during his tenure as the CEO of the company.
Why WWDC 2016 Would Be a Big Challenge for Tim Cook
For Apple to Win Again, Rivals Don't Have to Lose
Who can forget the life that the late Steve Jobs instilled into Apple, which had been going through probably the worst phase in 1997, after his long exile from the company? Noting the significance to retain the core value, Jobs had asserted in his famous keynote at the Macworld Expo, “We have to let go of the notion that for Apple to win Microsoft has to lose.” His instinctive approach, as well as lateral thinking, played a vital role in ushering the company towards an unprecedented success it accomplished in the subsequent years.
Breakthrough Announcements a Must
Are we going to hear some breakthrough announcements with regard to iOS 10, OS X 10.12 and watchOS 3 at the much awaited WWDC (June 13-17) from Cook?
Devoid of unique features, iOS 9 hasn't been a massive hit among fans. Despite being more secure than any other previous versions and having rapid adoption rate (above 80% till now), iOS 9 hasn't actually turned heads and so has El Capitan as they are not so distinct from their rivals. Moreover, some of their latest features had already been there on Android and Microsoft for quite some time.
Cometh the Hour, Cometh the Man
They rightly say, “Cometh the hour, cometh the man.” The real test of a leader takes place only during tough times. The burning question which has taken the centre stage today is how Cook not only bails out the company but also paves the way forward for a great future.
If he succeeds in wresting the downwards; bringing exemplifying results when it matters the most, he will earn more accolades from tech experts and all those who still consider him a lucky man.
The Due Appreciation
When iPhone 6 reached a pinnacle of success, very few gave the due credit to his excellent leadership; asserting Jobs had worked on the design of the popular phone and hence it was his futuristic approach that allowed the smartphone to storm the market.
When Cook introduced the most advanced smartwatch ever made-Apple Watch- to the world, fans did appreciate his efforts to revolutionize the wearable tech. However, he didn't receive the same praise that Jobs got when he had launched iPhone.
No one really counts your efforts when things are going on pretty smoothly. It's when the going gets rather tough; the universe starts following your endeavor to battle against the impossible and turn the misery into incredible achievements.
“If Apple fails to reclaim its renowned magic sooner than later, Tim Cook won't get his due as a proud successor to Jobs, who often brought the company from unprecedented failures. That's why people are still obsessed with how the former CEO fought against all odds to achieve outstanding highs. Had he never faced those impossible looking challenges, his huge success would never have been a legend…!”
