1 April 2014Apple Investor:
Apple plans to conduct a conference call to discuss financial results of its second fiscal quarter on Wednesday, April 23, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. PT / 5:00 p.m. ET.
Normally, the Q/A sessions on earnings calls are really dull. Apple’s messaging is usually so vague that Apple leadership can easily dodge questions. However, in the last year, Cook has made some statements that include firm dates. It’s a lot harder to evade questioning on something that involves deadlines.
Obviously, what I’m getting at is here is Cook’s quote about new product categories.
We’ve got some really great stuff coming in the fall and across all of 2014.
‘Across 2014’ would imply new products spread across the year. If Apple doesn’t do something new by the 23rd1, investors actually have something concrete to press Cook on. Should be fun.
1 Chinese LTE iPads, 8 GB iPhone 5c’s and last-generation iPads don’t count.
