Chalk it up as the most unorthodox analyst prediction we've seen in a while.
On Wednesday, JP Morgan analyst Mark Moskowitz made a bold projection with regard to Apple. In what he expects to resolve longstanding criticisms that Apple has forgotten how to innovate, Moskowitz thinks Apple will look beyond hardware to silence its detractors.
Apple will soon launch something different, something called "iAnywhere."
What is iAnywhere? It's a converged operating system, much like Microsoft tried to make a converged operating system with Windows 8. Windows 8 is has a touch based tile system, and a traditional desktop environment under it. Moskowitz vision isn't quite the same, but it's similar.
Although it's unclear how iAnywhere would necessarily spark renewed growth for Apple, Moskowitz speaks on the matter on behalf of his company: "In our view, iAnywhere could be the stepping stone to a broader peripherals and services-led sale, partially reducing Apple’s dependence on device-led product cycles."
