After years plagued with investor concern over slowing growth, the market appears to have seen the light and recognized Apple's shares for the outstanding value they continue to present.

Sure, the Apple iPhone 6 remains perhaps the most significant growth-driving opportunity for Apple in the upcoming year.

However, there are other ancillary storylines unfolding at Apple that could prove a boon to shareholders.
