What kind of performance will there be for Apple in 2012? There following are the top five forecasts the American CNET made.

1. The advent of 1.Apple TV

Same with the IPad and iPhone, the Apple TV has had a lot of rumors before the launch. As the saying goes, where there is smoke there is fire, the launch of Apple TV will become a hot topic in 2013.

It remains uncertain that what the Apple TV will look like. Apple has produced its own set-top boxes, but it does not fit to plug in cable television cable. On the contrary, its main purpose is to connect Apple’s digital stores and third-party streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu. In 2013, Apple is expected to launch a full-fledged Apple TV, but the premise is to create a better set-top box which is able to receive television programs and have basic control functions.

2. To live in peace with competitors

The 2012 is an unrest year for Apple, while the 2013 will be the year of peace, which we have seen between Apple and HTC. Then, such peace, of course, can also be implemented in Apple and other competitors (especially Samsung and Google).

3. “IRadio” streaming music service launched

It has been years since the rumor that Apple will launch iRadio streaming music services, but there has been no more information. At the same time, competitors such as Spotify and Rdio have already significantly been ahead in the field.

Apple products have been to act as a platform in the past few years to allow many companies sell their application. BUt Apple slowly increase more functionality for iTunes through iCloud.

Sources told CNET, Apple with three major record companies trading negotiations still “nowhere near enough.” However, this does not rule out the possibility that Apple use its huge cash reserves in the next year, the possibility of completing the transaction.

4. Apple map improvement

In 2012, the launch of the Apple Maps application and mistakes bring great embarrassment to Apple. In 2013, Apple map must have some improvements, but please do not expect it to completely change overnight.

5. Siri mature

It has been more than a year since Apple introduced Siri. But Apple still has some tough work to do about Siri. In IOS6 system, Apple has added some new tricks to Siri. Next, Apple will greatly enhance the speed of Siri, and integrates more third-party applications and services. In addition, there are indications that Apple will have more products equipped with Siri, such as Mac and Apple TV.

According to media reports, after Apple had a suddenly substantial adjustment in the management on Monday, the company on Tuesday announced that it would postpone the scheduled iTunes software update release for a month time. In September of this year, Apple announced that iTunes software update would be launched in October.

Apple spokesman Tom Neumayr expressed:” The new iTunes launch time will be late than expected and we want to perfect the new version iTunes with a little time. The new version iTunes is easier to use, the interface is more refreshing and seamless integration with iCloud, it’s planned to launch before the end of November. ”

It is not clear ITunes if the delay of the software update release is related to Apple management substantial adjustment. Apple announced the iOS software executive Scott Forstall and retail store business executive John Browett will leave the office at the adjustments. The Apple spokesman Neumayr refused to issue on it significantly. However, it is worth noting that Forstall isn’t in charge of iTunes business during his tenure. After Browett leaves the office, Eddy Cue will share the duties of Siri and map services, and Apple will incorporate the company’s network services into a department.

The other hand, Apple’s recent mistakes in the map service resulted the CEO Tim Cook in personally making a public apology, so the company will certainly be extra careful in the release of the next product. The new version iTunes may include: better layout, improved performance, providing more convenient playlist creating mode, supporting full library search, improving integration with iCloud, and will launch a redesigned Mini player.
