 Interesting. I wonder if in the not so distant future, cursive will be become almost a lost art, with just a handful of private teachers keeping it alive. Could be a 
 Haha. Have you tried writing cursive lately? I get so lost in all the loops...
This new arrangement of icons seems like it might be slightly disorienting because of the differences between the iPhone and iPad icon arrangements.   Can someone using the new iOS on both an iPad and iPhone comment on whether the different folder arrangements bother them?
The screenshots folder would be helpful for me.   I sometimes take screenshots of transit directions so that I can view them while in New York City subways, where there is often no reception.
Handwriting input is so 1990s.   Haven't we come to the conclusion that typing on a mobile device is more efficient and faster than handwriting input?
I think Apple vetting the cases it sells is a helpful strategy, and aligns with their brand.   There are a gazillion cheap and poorly-designed cases on the market that it's difficult to choose. Many of them are knock-offs of branded cases, and although look similar to the real thing, lack the same quality.   An Apple-curated case selection in the Apple Store would and rightly should indicate that these cases are of good quality.
If done well, a study reminder tool on an Apple Watch would be a boon for students.   I've used a flashcard app that reminds me to review vocabulary that I'm learning at optimal intervals so that I don't forget them, and it worked very well. If this could be done on a broader scale for studying in general, I think it could help students retain knowledge much better than the usual cram before the test method that happens so often.
This seems like a lot of work.   I like the idea that accessories sold in Apple Stores have a premium look, but Apple helping out accessory makers with package design seems like maybe it's going a bit far. 
Woohoo!   I live in Queens and this new Apple Store will be a hop and a skip away. Funny though, I was just there two weeks ago, and I don't recall seeing any signs of a new Apple Store coming.   I wish Apple could have done something more with the design. The neighborhood and the mall's customers are insanely diverse, and in addition to a diverse staff, it would have been nice to see an architectural design that celebrates this aspect. 
 I don't believe that Apple makes devices thin for no reason or just for thinness sake. On the contrary, I think that the thinner the iPhone is, the more comfortable and less obtrusive it is in your pocket. This is an important factor given that the iPhone is primarily a portable gadget. Imagine carrying an iPhone in your front jeans pocket or in the inner breast pocket of your suit, and it's so paper-thin that you only notice its weight and not its bulk. I know I would...
