We were expecting two new devices from Apple in 2014, the new Apple iWatch and the new Apple HDTV, although according to a recent report, Apple may have put its plans for a new Apple HDTV on hold.
According to sources in the TV supply chain, it appears that Apple’s long-rumored TV plans, which were far from concrete anyway, have been put on hold again, possibly to be replaced by a rollout of wearable devices. Although many financial and industry analysts have been speculating about Apple’s entrance into the TV business via an actual TV (instead of the Apple TV “hobby” set-top-box) for years, during the last year the rumor-mill has shifted into high gear about a 2014 introduction. Indeed, our own information from TV supply chain sources pointed to the fact that Apple appeared to be lining up resources for a product introduction in the second half of 2014, likely with 2-3 large screen sizes and 4K resolution.
The Apple iWatch will apparently be Apple’s focus in 2014, we have already seen a number of company’s like Samsung and Sony release their devices, and other manufacturers like Google and LG are also rumored to be working on new smart watches.
We are expecting to see a new Apple TV set top box next year, and Apple could still release their new Apple HDTV in 2014, I guess we will just have to wait and see.
