Apple CEO sends letter to Apple employees, hints at "big plans" for next year
Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote a letter to Apple employees to thank them for the year that has passed, and to motivate them for the upcoming year. Cook hinted in his latter that Apple will revamp its product line in 2014. For 2013, the executive noted the strength in iPhone sales, the hard work that went into delivering iOS 7 and the App Store reaching a milestone with 50 billion apps cumulatively downloaded.

In the letter, which we have for you in its entirety below, Cook says that 2014 is going to be a great year. "We have a lot to look forward to in 2014, including some big plans that we think customers are going to love," says the executive. One device that Apple is supposed to debut next year is the iWatch smartwatch. The project was reportedly delayed, and rival Samsung beat Apple to the punch by releasing its Samsung Galaxy Gear smartwatch earlier this year.

As far as the iPhone is concerned, we could see a larger version of the phone next year. A report last month said that Apple is working on both a 4.7 inch and a 5.5 inch version of the iPhone, using glass that curves downward at the edges. And there is speculation that a 12 inch iPad is being prepped for next year.
