Has Apple peaked?

Has Apple peaked? I know that they are on the top of their game and everyone is in love with them … but I remember the 1980’s. Back in the 1980’s Apple had the coolest, most user friendly, totally integrated computers and … Microsoft ate their socks. Microsoft did this because their operating system was separate from the hardware. This allowed hardware companies to innovate and create less expensive computers. Again Apple has created the coolest, most user friendly, totally integrated SmartPhones and tablets. Apple again has completely integrated hardware, software, and services. Again Apple has a competitor who provides only the operating system and lets all the hardware manufactures build their own device. And again, the competition is starting to sell more devices then Apple. So, are we looking at a complete Apple 2.0? Not just the rise, but are we at the peak with a fall in the future?
