The only iPad form factor I like is the mini 4... I just find all the others too heavy and awkward to use.
I want a smallish phone (no bigger than iphone 8) with a head phone jack.
I want lots of ports on my laptop computer including an SD slot and at least one type A usb 3 because Docks suck..
The new apple tv is way too expensive for what it is.
Apple watch is the only product I am remotely interested in, but that's mostly due to my curiosity around the fitness and health monitors.
I haven't purchased an Apple product since 2014 since they no longer make anything that I want. I know that complaining here won't do anything but maybe....

Obviously, by not updating it Apple encourages development on Metal - which is better.

Engineers are compelled by natural common sense to design to the efficiencies available in current production practices. The user benefits by not having to insert a long clunky plug with balky detents. Apple's Lightning plug insertion experience is infinitely more finessed.

That makes sense only in the mind of an Apple fanboy. There's a reason why that jack has been around for so long...because it works and it works well.
This is where I insert the quote "if it isn't broke, don't fix it".
One rumor I heard is that the Lightning EarPods could even have noise canceling due to the Lightning jack. Our iPhones already have noise cancelling technology, but due to the dated headphone jack, the EarPods aren't able use the microphone in a way that would be able to do the same thing. So yeah, the headphone jack actually is broke. I'd love to have noise cancelling with any headphones I use.
The issue is that there will be no measurable increase in audio fidelity, a severe cut in flexibility, a huge decrease in available choices, and a likely increase in cost, and to top it off a lock in to a proprietary connector !
Johnny Ive doesn't care about flexibility, thickness is a red herring I bet this whole thing is because he wants symmetry on the bottom of the phone.
