Why fix it if it isn't broken? Why risk BILLIONS by putting a large azz battery in teh phone a risk losing millions of users?
And where does it end? If you give 15 hour battery life why not 24 hours? or 48 hours? Just make it bigger, fatter, and heavier?
When does it end?
Do you SERIOUSLY think a $600,000,000,000 company does not do extensive research to see what their clients want? Seriously!!!
Which is why they're going to release a phone with a bigger screen and battery.
Also, your ridiculous "where does it end" argument can work against you as well. Why not make the next iPhone smaller, lighter, so it only lasts 4 hrs on a charge? People care about the appearance. Shouldn't they make a tiny phone that even Zoolander would like?
Obviously there's a limit in either direction. Just because someone is suggesting that a longer-lasting battery is better doesn't mean and he is arguing that a 48-hour heavy-use capability is a necessity.
Also, the point of fixing something BEFORE it is broken is because Apple is accountable to its shareholders and always fighting to keep its profits high. Large screen phones are a growing trend and Apple is already 2 years behind the times in producing one. Quite clearly, they've come to the conclusion that this is something their customers want.
