Apple's Tim Cook teases new products for 2014

By
Apple chief executive Tim Cook has promised that the company will break into new product categories in 2014.

The executive made the comment during the company's FY13 Q4 earnings call in response to an analyst's question about why Apple has not released any brand new products this year.

"I didn't say in April you would see them this year or in [the] first half of next year," Cook explained.

"I said you would see exciting new products from us in the fall of this year and across next year. You've seen that.

"If you look at the skills Apple has, from hardware to software to services and an incredible app ecosystem, this set of things are very very unique," he added.

"We obviously believe we can use our skills in building other great products that are in categories that represent areas that we do not participate today."

Cook's comments have fuelled rumours that Apple could unveil its rumoured iOS-powered smartwatch next year, along with its long-awaited connected TV set.

Apple announced its iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina display tablets earlier this month.
