There is anticipation growing in the world now that we don’t see Apple founder Steve Jobs taking the wheel back and steering Apple onto the right path. What is going to happen now that Steve Jobs is no longer there to fight the battles and show people which of his visions to follow? It’s evident that there is going to be huge uncertainty right before Apple’s next keynote about whether or not they will be able to keep up their solid march forward, not only as far as sales and statistics, but also when it comes to what products they will release. I am sure Apple is working hard to keep the memory of Steve Jobs alive and well within their four walls of innovation, and we will only know the result of their labor once the day comes when they actually announce a new product.
I don’t know if you could call a new iPad or iPhone a new product since it is merely a new version of it. It’s just an update to the technology and design Steve Jobs was once ruling over. However, there are things that are going on, and by the looks of it, we’ll be seeing at least a new iPad version, possibly called an iPad 3, during the next keynote. People have started talking about this because of a few iPad home buttons that just started surfacing over in China.
They are of course not the ultimate proof that we’ll be seeing a new iPad version distributed anytime soon; however, it’s interesting to see there are small changes being made. The mere fact that they have been slightly modified, and not completely re-hauled, might be further evidence that they are actually authentic. Sure, the buttons don’t give away too much of the proposed new and fresh upgrade as far as design, but they do speak of slight changes and a willingness to renew and refine.
