As the computing world begins to shift from desktop to mobile, many have been questioning whether Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) can deliver what consumers want and need. Some, like Computerworld blogger Jonny Evans, think Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) has been gradually putting together the pieces needed to make this shift successful.

Apple Inc. (AAPL): Still A Visionary?

What’s next for Apple?

There have been signs that the company is prepping to release an iWatch, and pretty much the entire tech community is expecting to see the iPhone 5S and iPhone 5C on Sept. 10. But are these devices going to be enough to keep Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) on the cutting edge of the tech community?

Of course it all depends on what they end up being and doing. The real problem with identifying a true visionary is the fact that we have no idea who the visionary is until after they have developed the solution to the problem and introduced it to the world.

Apple is just a trend

What are the chances that Apple still has this visionary quality? It seems as if the company’s chances are fading by the year, but this is a normal part of the tech lifecycle. Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) helped kick off the mobile computing revolution with the iPhone, but the world wants something new, something fresh. The fact is that the next big product could come from anywhere.

Will it be the iWatch? It’s anyone’s guess, but the fact is that we won’t really know what it is until we have it. A true visionary creates a product no one has dreamed of yet and brings it to the world. That’s what Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) did for the iPhone, and that’s what fans and investors are clamoring for again.

Of course part of the problem is that technology has to catch up to what consumers want and can use, but we may not be far off from another major world changer.
