iOS is the world's most advanced mobile operating system that is the foundation for the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Apple TV and the world's best mobile ecosystem.
iOS 7 is the world's most advanced mobile operating system. Now in its most advanced form.
iPhone has received nine straight J.D. Power and Associates awards, ranking iPhone "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Consumer Smartphones" (that's every study since the first iPhone was introduced).
Apple is the #2 Global Brand (just behind #1 Coca-Cola), according to the world's leading global brand consultancy, Interbrand. Additionally, Interbrand states that Apple is the "Top Riser" in its most recent global brands report.
Mac is ranked first by the American Customer Satisfaction Index in the category of personal computers.
iPad has received two straight J.D. Power and Associates awards, ranking iPad "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Tablets."
Raymond James tech stock analyst Tavis McCourt "believes Apple is on the cusp of a second wave of mobile computing technology that will prove the naysayers ... wrong."
Kleiner Perkins' highly-regarded mobile tech analyst Mary Meeker states in her recent mobile report (dated 05/29/13) that "Apple Growing Rapidly (1.4x Share Gain) ... [in] Global Smartphone Unit Market Share" and that long-term "Tablet Growth" is "More Rapid than Smartphones, iPad = ~3x iPhone Growth."
Goldman Sachs recently estimated that Apple's share of computing-device operating systems across the world will increase from 24% in 2012 to 29% in 2016.
Yet the stock market is still foolishly undervaluing Apple with a waaaaay-below-market (ex-cash) P/E of 6.5 (vs. the S&P 500 market P/E of 18.4).
Obviously you are too dumb to realize they've already used almost 33% of the funds allocated to the buyback and it barely moved the stock. Currently 42 billion left through 2015, compared to 58 billion a quarter ago.
The future completely depends on the new products or a way to start monetizing the number of people using iOS.
