Two possible new Apple products we could be hearing a lot about in the next few months are very different in terms of size. Still, they could both do a lot for Apple’s bottom line. The so-called iWatch and iTV could generate billions for Cupertino, according to AppleInsider.
In a note to investors, Morgan Stanley analyst Katy Huberty states that together both products could generate $80 billion in new revenues for Apple. She believes that Apple could sell 50 million iWatch units at a price point between $200 to $300 per unit. The iTV, meanwhile, could arrive with an average selling price of $1,300.
Importantly, iTV and iWatch present new services opportunities that can differentiate Apple’s broader product portfolio, improving investor sentiment around Apple’s ability to maintain market share. Possibilities include, mobile payments service linked to iTunes / iWatch and video search and multi-screen viewing with iTV.
We’ve heard a lot about the iWatch and iTV in recent weeks and months. Both would-be products, neither which Apple has commented on, could launch later this year. However, in the case of the iTV, we’ve heard this tune before. Many analysts had expected an actual Apple television in 2012. Of course, that didn’t happen.
The iWatch rumors are somewhat newer. Just this week, for example, both The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal suggested that the product was real and could launch in 2013.
All of this sounds very exciting. As usual, we’ll keep you updated. In the meantime, which possible product are you most excited to see?
