Two years into Cook’s tenure, Apple is expected to unveil a redesigned iPhone next month. It will be a key moment for Cook. The company he inherited has become a very different creature: a mature corporate behemoth rather than a scrappy industry pioneer, with its share price down 5 percent this year, despite a recent rally. The S&P 500 is up about 15 percent this year.
Apple is maturing, just like its products. I like what is happening. I have no fear for the future. Apple see’s people go and new people come. This is how life works. We all know Tim Cook isn’t Steve Jobs, thanks god! Imagine if Steve was still there. I’m pretty sure that Apple would have problems reinventing a few things just like they try to do with iOS 7. It takes new blood, new ideas while staying focused on what is behind the curve.
