Investors aren't bullish about the future of Apple Inc. CEO Tim Cook assured analysts and shareholders that new products are coming by the end of this year. The Cupertino-based giant didn't bother to open secrets about the upcoming iPhone 5S nor about its game changer device - the much rumored cheaper iPhone.
On the side lines of Apple's recent earnings call meeting, Tim Cook, admitted to the fact that the company is rather facing difficult period. Since past few months, it was said that Apple could announce an updated version of iPhone 5, as early as this coming July. Now Mr. Cook admitted that no new devices are coming before fall; it itself indicated that the next-gen iPhone, iPad along with low cost iPhone, will see day light around September or October.
Despite CEO Tim Cook words, Citigroup Global Securities has come up with a fresh report that next-big thing from Apple will be launched in the month of September (via China Times). The report further says that Apple will finally announce the much crazy low cost iPhone to strengthen its position in the emerging markets. As speculated, iPhone 5S will land up in China via China Mobile - the world's largest carrier provider.

The network provider uses homebrew TD-SCDMA technology to power up the devices. So far, Apple hasn't come up with an iPhone due to differentiated technology used by the tech vendor. It also being said that iPhones 5S with TD-SCDMA will land in the Chinese market around September or October. Talking about the iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2, both are expected to announce in the month of September or October.
In the mean time, Apple has finally revealed dates of WWDC 2013(Worldwide Developers Conference). Naturally, the year 2013 is quite challenging for Apple. The tech giant is set to announce much talked about iOS 7 along with iRadio, during the upcoming event. Pressure from Google is increasing day -by -day, as Android is now being the number one mobile OS in the world. Even in the tablet race, Google has succeeded to some extent with the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. Google Play Store, a native app store, is now as popular as Apple app store.
In mobile hardware business, Apple no more enjoys supremacy with the iPhone. Samsung has beaten estimates, and sold record number of smartphones in the last quarter. The Samsung Galaxy S4, is set to sold 10 million units in its first month. The global roll out of the device could be one of the reasons for its sure shot success. Stay tuned to GizBot.
