When Apple announced a big deal with IBM last week to get iPads and iPhones into corporations, some scratched their heads. On Tuesday, Cook explained it's all about ramping up tablet sales to businesses as PC sales decline. Apple's tablet market share among businesses is about 20 percent -- way lower than it enjoys in other markets. "I think our theory since the first time we shipped iPad was that the tablet market will eventually surpass the PC market. That theory is still intact. I just think we have to do some things to get the business market moving at a faster trajectory," he said.
We still don't know when the iPhone 6 or the 'iWatch' will launch
If you were expecting even a hint about that, you really don't know Apple. A couple of analysts tried to tease out some information about what's coming and when, but Cook would only say that "new products and services" are on the way. Some things never change.
