Same thing that's done with Macbooks, iMacs, iPads, etc.
Oh come on, this sentence "The fundamental design of the iPhone hasn't really changed since 2007. It simply goes through major enhancements every revision"...is bit of a contradiction to say.
You basically saying that it has changed without changing.
My point is that it would not look the same as last years phone.
Visually… Aesthetically… And internally… This phone will look different.
So it doesn't matter what you think a "fundamental design" of an iPhone is…
Whether that means the home button, the rounded corners, the rectangle shape, the touchscreen interface, these may all be the staples, the cornerstone of all iPhones, but it doesn't mean it's design is not changed.
Take a side comparison of the original iPhone the iPhone 3G, the iPhone 4, and the iPhone 5 and you will see how different materials are used, different mathematics for the design different weight, feel, and thickness…
These are all designs that have changed radically every 2 years with the exception of the 3G which came out the next year.
I do understand what you are saying but, if I was to think your way..... I could also say ALL touch screen phones are no different from each other in design.
Now you do realize how Ridiculous of the statement that would be to say.
