Apple is set to announce what it claims to be the best group of products it has made in the last 25 years, as iOS 8, the iWatch, iPhone 6 and the company’s potential entry into the home automation market draw closer.

Cue’s comments come as the company finally confirmed its $3bn buyout of Beats Audio and Beats Electronics. They also echo those made by company CEO Tim Cook, who has referred vaguely to “new product categories” since 2011, but has yet to produce any major new product since the iPad in 2010.
