"We were worried for a while there that without Steve, we couldn't create groundbreaking and original technologies that would change the world," Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote in an email to media outlets. "But as you can see, I think we've done it."
It was feared by many in the Apple community that the passing of Steve Jobs signaled an end of Apple's innovation culture. As of recently, Apple has only garnered sales from updating existing devices like the iPhone and iPad. However, as soon as the first image of the new device was released, it was met with unbelievable excitement and celebration from consumers all around the world.
"I'm completely blown away," 21-year old Marcie Jenkins asserted when shown the iWatch. "I didn't think Apple would make anything truly inventive after Steve Jobs died. I just thought they were going to keep repackaging their old products and re-selling them as something new. The iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5, the iPad Mini...It looked like they were out of ideas. I've never been so happy to be proven wrong."
