Apple’s latest earnings report for the second quarter that ended at the end of last month had generally feel good news, where they manage to rack up a net profit of $9.5 billion, where it rode on the back of revenue which amounted to a whopping $43.6 billion. This came about as Apple managed to place another 37.4 million iPhones and 19.5 million iPads into the hands of happy consumers, which is up from 35.1 million and 11.8 million for the corresponding quarter in 2012. There was no boost in Mac sales figures, which remained flat at 4 million sold.
Sounds pretty good on paper, but if you were to peer into the crystal ball, there does not seem to be anything interesting arriving from Apple anytime soon. The world did look forward to a new iPhone arriving sometime in the middle of this year, but it seems that this will not be as Tim Cook stated that fall would be the earliest time should Apple decide to roll out a new device, and fall begins officially this September 22nd. 2014 would be a better bet for new devices, said he. Bummer! Guess there will be no new hardware announcements at WWDC this June, right?
