Apple made an announcement this week that it would stop giving quarterly sales reports during their earnings calls. They will no longer let investors know how many iPads, iPhones, MacBooks, etc.were sold. Leaving everyone to guess. How well a business is doing is directly tied to their sales report, and it may be that since the iPhone grew 0% this quarter, that Apple is concerned how reporting sales affects their stock prices. At the same time, Apple also derives a great percentage of their incoming from various services.
During this week’s Apple Event in New York, Apple announced a new iPad Pro, which they say is faster than most MacBook Pros, and just about any laptop on the market. If this is true, than this proves that the future of computing for Apple is the mobile iOS platform. They are reluctantly updating Macs. It’s also possible that Apple will not only abandon Intel entirely in favor of their own chips, but they will continue to be mobile centric. The Desktop does not seem long for this world. Apple showed that both AutoCad and Photoshop can run on it with no trouble.
