Probably a new 4k or 8k display... Apple Watch 2... iPhone 7...

Oh and don't forget the Apple Car.

And don't forget each phone sold generates revenue from App Store and iTunes Store as well.

Yep and (eventually) breaks or is lost and requires replacing.
What a phenomenal product.

Tim Cook I don't rate at all though, so many poor decisions.

The numbers will continue to look decent for a good while, but I think Apple has missed the chance to turn its market superiority into a sustainable advantage - i can only see the mobile story getting worse.

(and the apple icar story is getting old - apple should be selling cars and have a secret r&d team building rockets / robots by now)

yes, agree completely! My problem with Cook -- way too conservative -- sitting on vast billions and what does he do? Buys Beats! He doesn't even have to spend the cash, at the moment AAPL stock is basically currency, he should be issuing and buying up top tier companies....

apparently he met with Elon Musk and lowballed him for TSLA (which is totally believable); it would cost five times that now!

they made a mess of iTunes from the start of the iPhone integration and never fixed it; they should OWN all their users in the Apple ecosystem but it's so flaky and badly designed that they failed on that front too; the iWatch would never have been launched (as is) by Jobs; Netflix (somehow) trounced them on streaming .... it's just amazing how many opportunities they've missed.

Rumour is the Beats acquisition is because they want to do away with headphone ports altogether forcing people to buy some Apple bluetooth devices for listening.

Or it could be the other way around :-)

Dress your iPhone up in a scary costume for Halloween ... you can buy this cover that makes it look like an exploded Samsung Galaxy Note 7 :D
