Whatever Apple may have planned, don't make the mistake of thinking that Apple hurriedly made its decisions a few months ago, largely in response to pressure from competitors and a declining stock value. Apple doesn't work that way. Rather, these will be ideas that have been in careful development for years, with Apple finally ready to take off the wraps. In any case, I believe that this is the year for Apple to make some bold moves with iOS and OS X alike. I hope Apple agrees. We'll find out next week.
