Apple CEO Tim Cook said Tuesday that the company will announce some new products this fall but wouldn't offer any specifics.

"Our teams are hard at work on some amazing new hardware, software and services that we can't wait to introduce this fall and throughout 2014," he said during the company's earnings call Tuesday afternoon. But apparently, he can wait.

When asked by an analyst if this meant Apple won't release any other new products until fall, Cook wouldn't dish.

"I don't want to be more specific, but I'm just saying that we've got some really great stuff coming in the fall and across 2014," he said.

Cook also mentioned that one of the company's areas of growth are "potential new [product] categories," but didn't offer any other details.

Apple has been quiet on the product front lately. The company's last big unveiling was the iPad Mini, which was introduced in October. Since then, Apple's stock has been tanking, losing more than 40 percent of its value.
