As said many times before: WWDC will be launch pod for larger screen iPhone. I'm pretty confident they will have not only hardware, but also the app approval in place by then, or at least till september, when iOS 8 will be officially launched. 

 

Apps, that won't have auto layouts implemented, will not pass the iPhone XL certification. Few months after that it will be mandatory for all the platforms.

Of course I want Apple to release stuff only when it's ready but there's only so long Cook can keep promising new stuff and only doing refreshes of existing products.

What does 'so long' mean? Nothing. Nothing at all. It's only so long before we can expect to read another vacuous comment from you. I presume you called for Steve Jobs to resign in 2005, four years after the iPod was brought out, despite the fact that the iPhone wasn't to appear for two years.

The iPad is somewhat of a fluke since they mostly had to include a larger display and rework the iOS GUI, but even that took 3 years. Since Cook took over there have been some amazing releases, especially in the Mac lines. Don't get me wrong, I want a new product category to be released this year, but I don't want a half-finsihed product category to be launched simply for the sake of following some made-up timeline that never existed in the first place.

 

ROFL, you are comparing Apple back when it was a 4 billion market cap nothing to the tech giant of today.  Great comparison Sherlock.

1) If you read my post you would have seen I actually compared Cook to Jobs, not Cook to a market cap.

2) What does a market cap have to do with anything? Your comment implies that when AAPL at $700 a share and a market cap of $627 billion that Cook should have released more products then simply by virtue of a bubble in the market than today when the stock price is only $536 and market cap is $478.28 billion. Exactly how many new products should have appeared compared to today when the stock tipped the scales at $700? 1hmm.gif

3) And why ignore that I mentioned all of Jobs tenure since coming back to Apple? You ignored the iPod in 2001, the iPhone in 2007 and the iPad in 2010.

4) I personally believe such balanced comments as, "...until the technology is ready, we don't want to cross that line," so, again, explain to me the logic that would have anyone think Cook should be able to pull brand-spanking-new product categories out of his ass simply because their market cap has increased?
