We’re in the last few days of 2013 and it’s been a busy year for Apple. As well as releasing some great new iPads, it finished up its iOS and OS X overhauls, releasing iOS 7 and Mavericks. We also saw the iPhone 5s, some new, faster MacBook Airs and a fantastic new Mac Pro.
For me, 2013 was a big year for transition and preparing Apple for the future. Craig Federighi (pictured above) took a more central role, bringing life and entertainment to Apple’s keynote announcements. Behind the scenes he’s collaborating with Jony Ive, together they’re shaping the software and hardware of Apple’s next products. From a hardware perspective, the A7 chip and Touch ID sensor signal a move towards more complex processing and built-in security.
The big question is: Which is the best product of the year? Is it Apple’s innovative and powerful Mac Pro, or is the software built-in to the new iOS devices the best change of 2013? Vote in our poll and let us know which of the new releases was the most important.
