These along with various other questions are circling around the minds of many and no one can be certain what the future holds for Apple. However, recent research indicates that Jobs’s passing will not effect Apple’s market as much as expected. Even though APPL stock closed in today’s maket down 2.01%, it continues to survive. People are still investing in Apple and with the release of the new iPhone 4S, prospects are high. Over 200,000 people preordered the new iPhone 4S (clearly a number to go down in the record books) and the release of it will more than likely help to improve APPL’s numbers. As long as Tim Cook and Apple continues to live in Jobs’s memory, creating and continuously innovating, Apple will thrive again. Just like any other great company, Apple just needs to pick itself up, rub off the dust, and get back into it. Every company has obstacles and falls it must deal with, but it is how they rebound from such hurdles that make them great!
All we can really do is wait and see. And expect great things from Apple in the coming months. God Bless Steve Jobs – he will be missed.
