Apple 2013 product line up is mere hardware and software bump from previous models except for the 64bit desktop class A7 processor. Why do they wait for long one+ year?
What are they planning ahead?
What's waiting in their shelves?
Why does they want to release a 64bit desktop class A7 processor in all their products except iPhone 5C?
Why is Mavericks free?
Why is their productivity apps became free on both iOS and OSX?
Apple is a perfectionist will wait until a technology is mature enough and should enhance user experience. Did Apple found a way to combine iOS and OSX into one operating system which might be Apple OS? There are lots of possibilities. Use of 64bit in iPhone 5S, iPad Air, iPad Mini is Apple might want user base to test something under the hood or to attract developers to switch to 64bit apps in 2014. Mavericks is free which attracts more users to its Mac line up. So it's evident that Apple is a game changer they already did it with iPods, iPhones and iPads.
2014 Will be the year for that mystery product it may be a iWatch, iTV, iCar or iSomething. They will definitely enter into living room but not just as a smart TV, 3D TV or a 4K TV but as an iTV.
iPhone 6 Will be the biggest makeover to iPhone since iPhone.
As a Apple enthusiast waiting to see those in near future.
What would you expect from Apple in 2014?

In the months before the iPhone 5s launch, there were rumors suggesting that 2013 might be the year that Apple delivers a large screen iPhone to compete against the big screen Android devices on the market and satisfy consumers who have been looking for more screen real estate. A rumor from analyst Brian White in particular suggested that Apple might debut three different iPhones in different sizes. Of course, that rumor did not pan out and the company instead delivered two new iPhones, an iPhone 5s and an iPhone 5c, both of which tout 4-inch Retina Displays.
The report quotes analyst Brian White of Cantor Fitzgerald, who met several technology suppliers in China and Taiwan. During the course of his tour, White was told that “big things are expected from Apple’s fifth-generation iPad.” There was no mention of the second-generation iPad mini, though. The inference from this, according to the report, is that the mini-tablet might not be launching along with its sibling this month. The analyst has speculated that the iPad mini might come with a Retina Display using Sharp’s IGZO technology. This is contrary to earlier reports hinting at the company is sourcing the display from Samsung.
The new leak backs up what we had heard before about the iPad mini possibly pushing its debut to the next year due to supply constraints. If the device does come to the market this year with a Retina display, it will be in extremely short supply. The source, while talking about the 9.7-inch iPad, ratifies most of what we already know about the fifth-generation tablet. The new device will come with a lighter, thinner design, similar to the current iPad mini. This change is the first major redesign that the company has given to its tablet range in the last few years.
The source speculated that the new iPads are Apple’s move to capitalise on a “weakening PC market”, as the supply chain indicated to the Cantor Fitzgerald analyst that notebook sales are “soft”. Traditional PC sales are reportedly down as consumers are shifting focus to tablets instead, with “Apple’s iPad lineup carrying the lion’s share of the market.”
