Truffol says:

The iPad and iPhone lines are definitely showing signs of aging. They are no longer the insane growth engines they used to be now that the market is saturated. Apple is only sustaining these growth figures by opening up to more markets on day 1, but eventually that won't work anymore as iPhones are already available in most countries. Show us the iWatch please!!!

Looking at Apple's annual reports, here's a stunning number (derived from the 2012 and 2013 reports). Apple's non-retail employment grew by over 26% in 2013! I wonder how much, if any, was U.S. manufacturing?
