Tim Cook says new Apple products will "blow you away"

Tim Cook, speaking on Apple's new lineup, has a feeling that the products will "blow you away," which is great news for Apple fans.

Apple's Tim Cook has "never been more optimistic" about the state of the company and where it's heading for the future. In fact, speaking to investors in a recent call, he said that Apple is currently "rolling the dice" on future releases that just might "blow you away." Bold words.

Cook noted during the Apple meeting that the company's still looking to double revenue from services in 2020 from the $25 billion it made in 2016, with the eventual goal of lowering the price of the $1,200 MacBook Air. On that note, he announced a "long, great roadmap" of fantastic products coming down the line as related to the Apple Watch and AirPods, such as additional features for the Apple Watch, but didn't elaborate on what the AirPods may receive in the future.

It's unclear at this point what types of products Cook is referring to that are coming down the pipeline, but with Cook and Apple's interest in augmented reality and the AR glasses the team at Apple is working on, it wouldn't be surprising to see something rolling out from the company in the future down that avenue.

It's clear that those invested in Apple are looking for the next "exciting" thing to roll out the door, but the truth is, Apple hasn't given much of an indication what it's going to be next. Fortunately, we do know that the aforementioned exciting new products will mean an opportunity for those who might be wary of investing in the near future. Hopefully next time we hear from Cook, he'll be a lot less tight-lipped about things, especially because we can't wait to see what's coming down the pipeline from Apple, on any old given day. What do you think is next for the mammoth tech giant later on down the line?

              As much as I have never been a fan of the entire iOS ecosystem, as well as the cult of personality around Apple, I don't think I have ever seen a tech keynote that was so literally game-changing before or since. Myself and my fellow workers were all sitting there pretty much just slack-jawed when they did the initial demos.

          If they drop even mediocre noise cancelling on the next gen I'll finally get a pair. With no noise cancelling or rubber seal I'm not sold on them for commuting despite all the other qualities.

            If you commute on the tube they are largely useless. They are pretty much inaudible over train noise.

            Luckily I barely ever have to get the tube these days so it's not an issue for me.

        iPad Pro 10.5

        Yeah, it's iterative on a years-old tablet design, but especially coming from an iPad 4, I couldn't believe how thin, light, and fast the Pro is, and the 120 Hz screen makes a huge difference in how pleasant it is to use. First iPad I've seen that really fulfills the potential of the product line. It's the main computing device I use around the house now, I don't touch a laptop and only use the PC for games and other heavy lifting.

        Just the iphone reveal. I've been happy with many of their products, but that reveal is the only one I could say blew me away.

        And even with that, I never got one - I ended up getting a Nokia N900, and after Nokia temporarily died, switched to Android.

        iPhone 4 easily. The screen was a game changer and the phone looked like it was shit out by Tron himself. It made everything else on the market look like a plastic toy. Even with the cracked backs and the antennagate fiasco, I still wanted one.

        Other than that, probably the PowerMac G5.

        iPhone 4 by far. with every other apple product, i know what i'm getting so it's just "i'm pleased with this" rather than being blown away. but i'm pretty sure i said "oh my god" the first time i turned my iPhone 4 on at the store. i wasn't prepared for that device. it was basically perfect

      Definitely not AR glasses.

      $10 bucks says its just a touch-screen macbook.

      Didn't Apple say they wanted to unify iOS devices? Can't do that without a touch screen.

      They also dabbled in it with that stupid touch bar.

      I would say it's about time. They are late to the party.

        But just think about all the video and pageviews people will get by extolling a touchscreen Apple laptop as the next coming of Jesus and only Apple could have thought to combine a tablet and laptop, while conveniently forgetting the fact that the Surface has been around for years.

          If you follow the rumors that’s definitely not what’s happening.

          Marzipan is their attempt to unify the development tools for macOS and iOS meaning apps that are developed for iOS and follow their UX guidelines can be exported to macOS and automatically adapt to the Mac’s keyboard, mouse and trackpad interface. They wouldn’t be going to all that trouble if they just planned to throw a touch screen on macs.

      It’s probably the fastest iPhone they’ve made yet, with the best camera they’ve made yet. And 20 minutes more of talk time.

      It will improve the speed images open by 2ms, and the speakers are 0.5dB louder.
