Perhaps your app is on the App Store, great! The hardest part is over. Or is it?

What Can We Expect From Apple In 2014?

2013 was a huge year for Apple. iOS 7 was released, and was the biggest change of iOS to date. The completely redesigned Mac Pro was announced. The iPhone 5S, iPad Air, and iPad Mini Retina were released as well. But what can we expect from Apple in the future?
