What Apple can do to stay relevant in the cloud future?

  1. Apple will stay true to its core and will try to control the next paradigm shift to fight Google and Amazon back
  2. Apple will concur that building the cloud future itself is way outside of its competencies and skills, and then will focus on providing the end-user experience on top of other platforms
