The silence of Apple CEO Tim Cook on the company's next move had the investors worried about the stability of the Cupertino-based tech giant.

No new Apple products for the next years
Tim Cook, in almost all of his interviews, would not dare to say anything about the company's next move not until it is finalized and confirmed. According to Time, this ancient move of Apple CEO has made some of the investors impatient most especially when Cook would just say nothing but assured that he is confident about everything.
This act of the CEO of Cupertino-based giant has been interpreted as a safe answer as Apple is heading towards a gap period when it comes to delivering new products according to an analyst. Furthermore, the analyst added that this gap period of the company is probably caused by "products that are not quite ready".
On the other hand, Apple skeptics began to think that the delayed delivery of AirPods, backing out from the manufacturing of routers and monitors and the mediocre upgrade it has done with the newly launched MacBook Pro are all part of a strategy. But nevertheless, the company is expected to lead in creating health applications and materialize the augmented reality in games and other aspects.
