I truly don't understand why Apple switched away from the year round intro of new devices/models. There should be quarterly updates with iPad, iPhone, Mac and iPod/Apple TV etc. One per quarter would be better in so many ways.
Tim Cook is full of shit. There are plenty of high quality displays larger than 4", many on Apple products. As for battery life, make the phone bigger and a little thicker and increase the battery.
As for those who are digital.....ly challenged, like TS, keep the 5 form factor too.
Bottom line is this is about making phones to satisfy multiple target audiences. Apple gets this with the desktop, with the laptop and even with the iPad. Why it's so hard to grasp OPTIONS...
Problem is Apple has set the bar so high even above average performance is considered a loss by many. Until Apple comes out with a whole new (not the mini which is a redesign of existing) and highly successful product line post SJ era, analysts and similar will be reticent on the company.
-Speed scroll to bottom of page, not just the top like current.
-Mulitiple accounts per device in iOS, people have been asking for years.
-Multi-tasking sucks. It barely works and most of the time does not save your apps in the background.
-Update the alerts from red circles to actually being within the icon and maybe a red border color to let you know
-Some info in the icon (like the calendar) but for more apps
There are many improvements they could...
