Apple’s CEO Tim Cook has teased a “big plan” for 2014 in an internal memo and congratulated employees for a successful 2013

A leaked memo from Apple CEO Tim Cook has stated the company has a “big plan” in place for 2014. The memo was meant for company employees but leaked online. The memo included no specifics but said “we think customers are going to love” the new products.

Rumours include the company’s first wearable technology, the iWatch, a larger 12.9-inch iPad Pro and an entirely redesigned iPhone. “We have a lot to look forward to in 2014, including some big plans that we think customers are going to love,” wrote Cook.

He continued, “I am extremely proud to stand alongside you as we put innovation to work serving humankind’s deepest values and highest aspirations.”

Cook also used the memo to congratulate Apple’s staff for success in 2013. Apple released the iPhone 5S, 5C, iPad Air and iPad Mini with retina in 2013 and has thus far experienced excellent sales across the board. The company also confirmed over 50 billion downloads have now been made inside its App Store.

Apple also confirmed a deal with China Mobile this week which will see its iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c made available for the first time to the network's 750 million users.

Big Plan = New Products? 

Big plans could just be a way of saying the company will continue updating products in 2014 but it seems to hint toward a new era for the company. The Apple iWatch seems like a good bet for 2014 as the company seems to have been working on it for a while now. Apple is also believed to be looking at a bigger play in the TV space next year. Whether this will be done via its long-rumoured HDTV or via its existing Apple TV remains to be seen, however. 

In a nutshell, expect the following next year: two new iPhones, an iWatch, an update for Apple TV and possibly a new iPad.
