Apple faces holiday season with stellar line-up tech giant's latest product releases boost its arsenal to beat its rivals
October 20, 2014
Bloomberg San Francisco Apple chief executive officer Tim Cook is ready to tackle the holiday season with a full product array including new iPads. His challenge now is luring the hordes of buyers that analysts are projecting. Apple on Thursday unveiled refreshed iPads and Macintosh computers at an event at its Cupertino, California-based headquarters. The iPads are thinner and include fingerprint sensors, with the Macs boasting features such as sharper displays and faster processors. The devices follow Apple's introduction last month of larger-screen iPhones, a smartwatch and a mobile-payments system. The line-up is ratcheting up Wall Street's projections that Apple is entering a high growth phase, which Cook will now have to meet. The CEO is also facing calls by activist investor Carl Icahn to increase Apple's value. Investors will get a taste of how Cook's latest gambits are performing this week, when Apple reports fiscal fourth-quarter results today.
