TechDaring: "Will Apple hit back with jaw dropping features and excitement with their next big smartphone offering? Let’s hope so."
They could etch an apple on a brick and people would still buy it
Apple are starting to find them self between and rock and a hard place. On one had the devices have not really changes since the iPod touch in terms of its an app launcher and everything still more or less looks and acts the same as it did so people are starting to get bored of this and looking at other devices. The flip side is if they make massive changes to the os the main people who use the phone (the none tech users) will not like it as it will be too different and as we have found out with other devices they dint like change. For me I'm not an apple fan never have been just because of how everything has been closed but I can see why people like apple products.
I think they are still very popular, since everyone and their mother will buy their products. However, if you look closely, they haven't done anything great since a long time ago. OS X has had improvements, but since Snow Leopard, the OS is just the same. They haven't innovated since then. MacBooks are the same since they introduced the unibody aluminum. They haven't really changed. Improved, yes, but not changed. iOS is the same since iOS 4. With this, I don't even think they could do another OS that is completely different. Actually the same with OS X. I don't think that Apple even dares to do a complete redesign of the UI, and I don't mean looks, but UI, functionality and all. Apple is standing in a very safe place, since their products sell very well. I would love them to make a huge risk again. Whether is a completely new computer designs, or a completely new OS, etc.
I remember people saying iWatch will fail. Yet it sold over a million and they already ran out of iWatch to sell.
Apple cost too much these days for what you get. I haven't owned an Apple product since iPhone 4.
No, I think they are ascending into a front runner in the tech industry. There is a lot of negative hype on every product they release these days. Most is just bottom feeding journalism which thrives on "hits". Thats kind of the nature of modern journalism, so be it. In reality, they make great consumer products. I believe this recent trend toward fashion was an inevitable trend for technology, and Apple is getting in early. Many people on this site "hate apple", and that's fine, but for a mass market desirable product line, nothing currently rivals Apple. Hopefully no one really believes you can create tech revelations yearly.
Finally someone makes sense and doesn't come at this article with a childish response.
Considering the iPhone 6 broke sales records, I'd say Apple is doing just fine. I do agree to an extent about the stagnant evolution of the phone. They did recently overhaul the OS and it did feel fresh, but its definitely missing some of the more advanced features that are normally on Androids.
The number one reason I choose Apple over other brands is the quality. No one can say that Apple products are not made at the highest quality long lasting very little issues.
Had my iphone 4 for about 4 half years and the thing still ran pretty smooth, the battery life still lasted a day and the overall body was in great condition after many drops. I purchased a galaxy tab 3 last year and after 2 months of minimal use, the thing started to lag and some apps would constantly crash.
Apple haven't been spectacular to me since Jobsy passed. There's no denying he was a brilliant visionary,something Tim Cook simply doesn't possess. I switched to Sony after the iPhone 4S
I dnt get why people say Apple change since jobs died. What changed???? The sales are still rock solid soo Tim is doing something correct.
