Tim Cook teases "surprises" coming this fall and in 2014

Apple's financial results for the first calendar quarter of 2013 were pretty solid all around, but it looks like the company is keeping a lot of upcoming product announcements in its back pocket. Apple CEO Tim Cook teased financial analysts about those new products in its regular quarterly conference call today.

The Apple Investor website has a recording of that call, where Cook stated, "We've got a lot more surprises in the works. Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software, and services that we can't wait to introduce in the fall and into 2014."

Cook also said some of those new products will include Apple entering into "exciting new product categories" but he did not go into details. There are tons of rumors that Apple is working on an iOS-based 'iWatch" that could launch sometime in 2013 and other rumors persist that Apple is developing some kind of television.

In related news, Cook said that Apple is not interested in launching a larger version of the iPhone until the company is convinced it won't have to make any "trade-offs" in terms of screen resolution, app support and other features. Speaking of apps, Apple now says there have been 45 billion app downloads from the iOS App Store and that its iCloud service has signed up 300 million users.
