What should Apple do to return the iconic product to growth you say? Walt Mossberg gave a good overview in his article last March, post the iPhone SE launch.
- Battery life (even if it means no further decrease in device thinness) & charging speed
- Bezels! Banish or seriously shrink this waste of space
- Optical, or at least optical quality zoom
- Water resistance & screen sturdiness
- Increase storage (no more 16GB base)
- Up the iOS game & improve native apps (eg Mail)
So, now DisplayMate is a reliable source, but when it quoted the Galaxy S7 Edge's display as the "Best Performing Smartphone Display that we have ever tested" people on AI were calling it crap-talking and bought-out by Samsung. ;-)
Anyhow, I'd love me a small iPad Pro as my first iPad. I tried the pencil several times on a friend's device and it does work like a charm. Yet I cannot justify the additional expense as something I could actually use for work other than content consumption and the occasional sketch. Perhaps if it ran OS X instead...
jdw said:Agree about bringing back the 17". A huge retina screen and performance that beats the 15" would be reason to buy it. It doesn't matter if it "isn't so portable for most people." Today's 17" can be made thinner and lighter than the 17" of the past. Plus, if Apple ever does the right thing and implements a near borderless display (like the DELL XPS) then the machine can be made smaller still. It's really stupid not to offer it. And yes, I've sent Apple feedback on this point. So should you: http://www.apple.com/feedback/macbookpro.html

The iPhone is still a rectangle with a glass screen and a home button. Hard to argue that the obsession with their design evolution is anything but trite and obnoxious.
Besides, the gen 6 design is not what you'd call "the best possible design" that's exempt from change or criticism, certainly not in the way the gen 4 was perceived. You seem automatically inclined that any change to a new direction would result into something worse. Funny because those recent casing leaks you seem to be OK with truly are SOMETHING WORSE.
