My original comment was "What the heck is taking them so long? In the meantime, Android is surging in popularity and the iOS is stagnating."
The nexus between Apple's slow modernization of iOS and the current market stagnation of the iOS was interesting to me.
From what I have seen, the complaints about the iPhone rarely mention the hardware; what bugs people is the software. The article was about Apple finally (someday...) adding basic features to the software. I saw a connection, and wanted to explore it.
Lots of folks here seem to think that the current stagnation is directly tied to the delays in implementing common features in the iOS. Others think that the stagnation is not due to the old OS, but rather, to other factors.
I have no firm conclusions, but I enjoy discussing the technology and the market.
