Seeking help from some native English speakers -- Apple CEO said they are going to release new products across 2014. Does "across 2014" in English mean it includes 4 seasons of 2014 (winter , Spring, summer, fall)?

I don't consider myself native English but yes "across 2014" means all year round.

i can see how a person for whom english is not their native language could have a problem with that. i think a better way to say it would be throughout 2014

I am not native English speaker. You're right and Apple should release 'bigger' iPhone.
