    "An underwhelming hardware upgrade could mean that Apple will rely on a greatly revamped iOS 7 to demonstrate the product line's innovation."

    And why allow your new version of iOS to run on the iPhone 5 when you can force people to get a new phone if they want to use it?

    Yeah the iPhone 5S will only have a better camera and CPU. The 4S had siri on top of that. iOS 7 has to be the selling point here.

    I think is good news for the market. I don't like iphones, I am an android guy my self but im curious to see what they come up with.
  7. No wonder iPhone is the highest selling device, each time iOS is updated you need to buy a new phone.

    Widgets, customisable home screens, lock screen notification customisation, ability to hide apps.

    You know, revolutionary stuff.

    From an Apple respective, this is my (sarcastic, but true) response:
    1. Apple products are magical and just work. There is no problem here, our Maps work best with iPhone.
    2. Battery life is adequate - messing with any system settings by user will deteriorate OS stability and user experience.
    3. These applications found the core of the OS and are required.
    4. Safari is the iOS browser of choice.
    5. (Are there no actual RSS readers on the App Store??)
    6. Siri is proprietary and a major feature of iOS, as such it is provided by Apple only.
    7. (Gonna leave this out, don't really have a decent reply to it, it's preference.)
