Jony Ive is recognised as a world class designer, even among non-Apple fans. Trying to attack his hardware designs, surely you will come off second best. Doesn't that occur to them before they start?
Don't most people use phablets in the horizontal orientation, typing with 2 thumbs? I think Apple knows this with the new side dock. So Reachability shouldn't be needed most of the time. In a way it's to Apple's advantage that iOS has always supported both orientations, it means more software is automatically phablet ready due to Steve wanting dual orientation support all those years ago.   That said, I wish Mail worked better in portrait mode on the iPad.

Education is something that needs to be reinvented for the modern world, for our current technology, not the wristwatch.
If the climate is so huge and complex and incomprehensible then why do you believe the predictions (of mere humans) about what it will do?

Federighi and his software team are still there so it will still have fun software with intuitive interfaces.

I remember when all technical devices came with a thick, beautifully made user manual. I'm glad it's making a comeback though in digital form. It's way better to bury your head in a book for a few hours and know your device through and through than struggle along and ask questions on the Internet over a period of weeks.
I was more comparing the amount of thought that went in to one vs the other, rather than the things themselves. There's no reason you can't put a lot of effort in to an incremental update.
