 It's OK to have hundreds of apps on your iPhone on multiple home screens.It would be terrible to have hundreds of apps on your TV on multiple home screens.Unless there were a convenient way to launch exactly the one you want, say, ESPN.E.g. "Hey Siri, show me ESPN." Even better, maybe Siri could obviate the "app-as-content-silo" model."Hey Siri, show me all movies and episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation featuring Ashley Judd." That's my version of "SockRolid...
I just wish Podcasts had a Watch Extension. Pretty sure Music doesn't have a podcasts playlist. And even if it does, it wouldn't be as convenient.
 Especially if HomeKit works just fine on the $69 TV model.I wouldn't be surprised if they keep the old 3rd gen model around indefinitely for 1080 HD.And also ship a next-gen TV Plus with Siri, gesture recognition, and 4K output.For, oh, I dunno, $199.  Two very different models at very different prices.
 We'll (probably) know on Monday whether there will be an TV App Store or not.If iOS 9 has some kind of public TVKit API, then the sooner Apple releases it, the better. On the other hand, Apple might just keep TV "apps" the way they are right now.Not typical iOS apps at all.  Bundled into the TV app (which itself runs as an app on iOS.)I'd prefer that Apple only allow a few premiere networks / studios / game developers on TV.No Flappy Bird.  Please.

 Hey Ralph.  Since you're busy shaping the future, why don't you get rid of data caps too?I'm grandfathered in to unlimited data.  But lots of users aren't.  Which sucks for them.
Cherchez la Samsung.
 Unclear?  How about simply upgrading the existing silent alert vibrator?(You know, the one in all iOS devices except Apple TV.)Surely the "Taptic Engine" in the watch can be scaled up for bigger devices.
Maybe the iPhone 7 will get an OLED-based display next year. I'd be very surprised if this year's iPhone (6S?) has it.   Then again, the 5S got TouchID hardware in an odd "speed bump" year. The extra space freed up by an OLED panel could be used for, yes, you guessed it. A bigger battery.  Not sure the enclosure needs to get much thinner than the 6 already is.
