Well I guess our computer use is irrelevant, but it does our job !Email and Skype are heavily used here.We communicate with users on several platforms, Apps unique to a specific OS don't do the job for us !Social spyware Apps, like FaceBook, Twitter and Google have no place here. We view them as malware.
I expect Apple's big problem at this time, is obtaining the huge volumes of iPhones in the many locations receiving it first. They've been manufacturing whatever for months. It's very likely the 5.5" will arrive later, or there will be very limited volumes initially. 
Here in our Vancouver area,  at the Metrotown mall in Burnaby, BC;   MS opened a store after trying a small  isle stand in the middle of the mall.But they put their fairly large store in an out of the way location downstairs, whereas Apple's very large store is on the second floor main walkway  where there is much walk by traffic.Apple's store is very busy, at times difficult to walk around in.MS's store wasn't that busy when I looked at it the second week it was open. I...
Not for me, a 5.5 is far too small for my tablet use, yet a bit too large for a one handed phone.The iPad mini is the tablet for me, it's on my buy list to replace my POS BB PB. (Sorry BB!)
So the App Store must be working for many. At this time I've pretty given up on the App Store, my iPhone4 iOS7 App Store takes forever to start a download, it just spins!
Finally Samsung has had enough of this legal game, trying to escape from the "copying Apple" charges. Samsung needs the money to hire staff with the intelligence to compete with Apple, without copying.   So Apple has won this copying war with Samsung. Samsung will have to come up with their own ideas, with Google's help as long as they use spyware Android.
At  a quick glance of this article heading, I thought why is Apple protecting the HeathKit name ? 
No concern here for the 5.x iPhone. My hope is that the 4.7 isn't too clumsy after 3.5 years using my 3.5" iPhone4 . But I'm concerned enough that I started looking on CL for a top condition Unlocked iPhone5. Very interesting price variations!
 Strange that you don't like iOS7 and say it is troublesome, yet I love it on my oldie iPhone4. I missed iOS6, going directly from iOS5 to iOS7. Yes, just occasionally iOS7 is a bit slow, but many other user interface improvements more than make up for that. I'll admit to one problem only; the App Store App is extremely slow starting an App download. I suspect a bug is causing this.As for Android, ugh I'm too private to use a spyware phone.
We are in that niche Mini audience. Apple has nothing else which meets our needs as a desktop.I'm holding off purchasing used 2012 I7 Mini for now, but if nothing comes from Apple in a week or so, I'll go used I7.It's about the price of a new I5.
