    Apple held its annual investor's meeting at its Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California, this morning, where Apple CEO Tim Cook shared some details on Apple's future product plans.

    As outlined by Bloomberg, Cook said that Apple is "rolling the dice" on some future products that will "blow you away."

    Cook went on to say that Apple's eventual goal is to be able reduce the price of the 2018 Retina MacBook Air, which currently starts at $1,200. In reference to the Apple Watch and the AirPods, Cook said there's a "long, great roadmap" of "fantastic" products on the horizon.

    While Cook did not go into more detail, rumors have suggested that AirPods coming in the near future will be available in new colors (black) and will have new functionality including "Hey Siri" support and the ability to be wirelessly charged.

    More ambitious products are also rumored to be in the works, including a pair of augmented reality smart glasses and perhaps even a full self-driving vehicle.

    On the topic of services, Cook said Apple is well on its way towards meeting the goal it set in 2016, which was to double its $25 billion revenue by 2020. Later this month, Apple is expected to unveil two new products in the services category, including a new streaming TV service outfitted with original television shows and a new Apple News service with access to subscription news sites and magazines for a monthly fee.

    Cook touched on other topics at the meeting as well, including Apple's political ideology. Shareholders soundly rejected a proposal that had suggested the ideology of board nominees should be disclosed in an effort to diversity the political opinions of Apple's board.

    Cook also said that Apple is pushing for regulation against tech companies like Facebook and Google that build data profiles of their users. Cook first called for new U.S. privacy laws to protect citizens from data collection in October, but Apple has long been an advocate for customer privacy.

    Did they announce the dividend increase at this, or is that for private board meeting?

    As said by Cook at every shareholders meeting. I'll believe it when I see it.

    And yet in Septmember we will see another boring iPhone launch. And don’t even get me started on their Mac lineup.

    I have no doubt the Apple pipeline is full of amazing and massively magic products.
    And I can't wait to buy them all.

    They need to reduce (or make) their entry laptop to sub $1000 maybe $899 to satisfy to satisfy users that just want to do basic stuff. The iPad although functionally might do the same stuff, isn't quite there to get user to abandon their laptops.

    I remember one of the 2015/2016 keynotes ended with a teaser about future mind-blowing products but we've yet to see them.

    The only thing that’ll be blown away is cash from our wallets.

    Liar. All he's ever done since being the CEO is raise prices. In fact, Apple's product line has gotten worse.

    Tim “What’s in the Pipeline Is Amazing” Cook.

    He was saying the same stuff back in 2012-2013 and all we got were the Apple Watch, HomePod, AirPods, and some incremental improvements to iOS products.

    RE: "Cook also said that Apple is pushing for regulation against tech companies like Facebook and Google that build data profiles of their users."

    Better yet, make it ILLEGAL for any public company with Debt to Buy Back Shares ... that will prevent Ponzi Schemes !

    The main problem with Cook the past few years is he is always promising the FUTURE ... & NOT Delivering on the present !

    IMO, the smartest move Cook could make would be to reduce Schiller's role @ AAPL ... let him continue to do the iPhone intros every September, but nothing else.
