For the umpteenth time, two times per year refreshes make little to no sense for iPhones that are stuck on two year contracts. Not enough people to buy both models. I think Apple does need to go back to splitting up the release times for its products. It keeps interest year round and allows people time to save up for each different item. Valid arguments can be made for both sides of the low cost and screen size debates. Apple will decide which they like better, however...
Problem is biannual updates for iPhones makes no sense. Contracts are two years. How many people are going to buy on an off contract schedule?
Until Cook proves he has what it takes to keep Apple at the top of the innovation ladder these fears will remain. It's only natural. The "news media" needing crap to print keep making it worse and playing off these fears.
Ah yes, the same crew that said Apple will never launch an ipad mini or a larger screen iphone are at it again. They may or may not do this, but the wisdom in it would be to be to capture the low cost market from Android further expanding the iOS reach. The more iOS vs Android you have the less attractive it is for developers to develop for the fractured Android marketplace. You also develop an expanded loyal following.
This seems to be the perfect thread for TS to again tell us what a useless, bad, unwanted, stupid product the amazingly well selling ipad mini is.
Total bull$1t.
As a first minute ipad mini adopter, I can tell you I think it's great. I don't miss the retina and don't want it if it will make the device heavier, thicker, less battery life or hotter. The reg ipad is just too big for what I needed. I use it primarily on the train. I stated for years a mini was a needed and wanted size, and despite the numerous folk here who said it would be terrible and bomb, the market has borne out the need for it.
I do have to say I think Apple is losing its quality and high standards. I've had iPhones since the 3G. I had one 3G for two years. Then I got the 4 and in the two years it had to be replaced twice due to failed parts. I then got the 5 and I'm already on my third 5 due to component failures. I might also add I've had Apple's since the mid 80's and never had problems like this with them.
Dunno, I have the mini and love it. It's not a replacement for a pocket iPod music player but it does replace the iPad quite well. My wife has a reg iPad and I have the mini. There's nothing her's does better IMO. I do think the mini will take a lot of sales from the reg iPad.
I must start off by saying I ordered one the minute the pre-orders opened. I also did the same for the iphone 5.   That said, I am not worried about the A5 chip as without the retina display it should be more than adequate.   In general, I do question whether Apple is still innovating especially in the OS area. Yes, iOS is the best thing out there by far, but I would like to see some enhancements after 6 years of the same basic look and function.  Yes, there are...
