The declaration did exclude another gadget, which is generally guessed to be in the pipeline for later this year.

Additionally, Cook reported that the Apple Watch will presently begin at $299 – down from the current $349. Is this basically a move pointed toward putting the Apple Watch on more wrists, or a sign that another gadget is going our way soon? We will need to stand by and see.
