In the year 2011, Apple managed to celebrate three ten year anniversaries thereby, making the year 2012 its first complete year for going in to the second decade of the development of Mac OS X, iTunes and iPod devices along with its retail stores in addition to the latest business categories that are being included such as the iCloud services and the iAd to the Siri function. In this article, I will be mentioning as to where will the company be heading in this ongoing decade of Mac operating units.
The first ever model of Mac OS X version 10.0 was introduced by Steve Jobs in the month of March 2001. He further explained this release as a platform which Apple will be using for the upcoming fifteen years or a rough estimate to be the same time period that was utilized by the classic Mac operating units to power up the Mac line at that time.
Ten years from now, Apple had a tendency to leverage the proven technology as well as the potential of the NeXTSTEP’s core of Unix so as to deliver the Mac OS X a quite viable operating unit that have all the abilities which compete against the Windows NT systems of Microsoft. However, in the past decade, Apple has turned out as a primary vendor of the workstations of UNIX and has also taken up great advantage in the mainstream of UNIX development.
In this decade, there are signs to continue the trend of developing web standards along with incrementally incorporating as well as sharing of the operating systems technologies but on a faster pace than it used to have before. The main reason of this is quite reason, Apple now holds a very important position within the tech world than it used to have five or ten years back. The company has plans to carry on the stature in taking ahead the direction of the computer machines as well as the technology used in software developments as its major part because the company is presently developing the most hardware quantity and is earning the most from it.
Moreover, the company has also planned to hold out a course to pass out HP within the aspect of personal computer based shipments next year. Apple also has a music player as well as a smartphone which leads to Samsung, Sony or Nokia thereby, forcing the groups within the market to divide the sales share of Apple in to several different segments so that they become comparable in several unflattering ways against all the products that are dissimilar, a group of all the manufacturers which are making use of the same element such as the platform of Android and a big shipment of all those products that are neither sustainable nor profitable.
Afar these unit sales, the company also have several other earning sources of revenue and profits as compared to any other hardware developer. Moreover, Apple is considered among those few enterprises which have its very own platform of software development which also offers it a very unique opportunity to create its own differentiating platform of product lineup.
Another aspect is that the future of the Mac OS X and its related iOS devices will have the opportunity to pave new directions in the world of technology. The benefit of Apple is already embedded within the fact that the devices of Android requires 1.2 GHz multiple CPU cores along with a dual processor as well as twice of the RAM so as to cope up with the smooth performance of the interface of the three tear old iPhone 3GS.
There are also indications, that Apple will focus on simplifying away all the complexities involved within the computing world such as the replacing of the conventional file method with the cloud based one, secured files that are automatically updated across all attached devices without even involving a manual intervention by the users.
Going a step ahead, Apple is also expected to enter new horizons and to venture within new markets having its development tools and the great operating system so as to increase its presence on the HDTV’s as well as pushing a bit further within the casual market of games which has been reinvented by the iPod touch.
The year 2012, also marks as the first year of the second decade of the iPod and iTunes of Apple which will be featured out later on.
