After the iPhone, what’s next for Apple?

We are only a few days removed from Apple's latest press event. The dust is starting to settle, media members have gotten their hands on the devices for more in-depth reviews and water cooler arguments of how "exciting" or "progressive" the new smartphones are have died down. Now it's time for the rumor mill to speed up again to look at what could be coming down the line.

The reason for some of this excitement comes from comments made by Apple CEO Tim Cook earlier this year. Back in January during Apple's Q1 financial results conference call, Cook said: "We're working on some incredible stuff. The pipeline is chock full. We feel great about what we've got in store."

Since then some of those products have been given release dates—iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iOS 7—but others have only been teased. Those include the new cylindrical Mac Pro and OS X Mavericks. However, past that there is much speculation as to what could be coming over the next few months.

There is potential for a refresh of the entire computer line that would go along with the launch of Mavericks and the Mac Pro. The other big rumor is that the iPad line will also see new entries into the family by the end of October. After that there is no telling what could happen: the iWatch, iTelevision Set, new iPods, something else that comes straight out of left field? Only time will tell.

What is known is that once these products hit the marketplace, companies will be forced to integrate them into current operations. This can be done easily with the help of an IT consulting firm that specializes in Mac integration.
