Fingerprint scanner, all metal body, 64 bit processor, retina display, millions of apps, send a new email with a document attached from inside the mail application. Oh wait, I just got carried away with that last one. After all, this is iOS.
Nasser, 16 Jun 2014Nowww it reflects how bad apple is, imitating and copying other android products' ideas. Hahah... moreI've been hearing about the death of Apple for years, but they just keep making more and more money every year. Does RIP stand for Revenue Increase Potential or something else in you guys' minds. Because it certainly doesn't mean what it traditionally means here.
Nasser, 16 Jun 2014Nowww it reflects how bad apple is, imitating and copying other android products' ideas. Hahah... moreThis article opines that Apple is back on track and is strong:
As usual, one of you guys, even sounds like you writes:
"apple did not introduce anything new. basically, apple said, "you know all those cool things you like in other phones? yeah, we might be 2 to 3 years late, but we are going to do it too". nothing to see here. move on."
And immediately gets blasted by the moderator so easily:
"Right. Except a new programming language. And a way to seamlessly move from web or iOS or Mac app to another device. Or Metal as a way to being Console-like game development to ios. Or a home automation framework built into the OS. Or a health kit also built into the core OS. And a new version of its IDE. But aside from that, nothing new, right?
I've always argued that features matter far less than execution. One could argue Apple is rarely first at a feature or technology (64-bit ARM processor and multi-touch being two exceptions -- there are more), but it is often the first to execute it competently.
With some of the third-party app stuff, keyboards and whatnot, I think you can argue others introduced those aspects earlier and executed competently. But that doesn't mean it's not good for Apple, its developers, its users and its competitors that Apple got there too.
This isn't a post about how Apple is now ahead of everyone else -- I think it is in some ways and isn't in others - but that's beside the point. This is about a company that finally seems able to take ahold of its own destiny. It's a company that now looks like it wants a more healthy relationship with developers. And that's a good thing for everyone."
Nasser, 16 Jun 2014Nowww it reflects how bad apple is, imitating and copying other android products' ideas. Hahah... moreApple is doing better than ever. Also if you read the latest articles, developers are thrilled by the direction Apple is taking with its latest WWDC.
Not sure if it's just me, but you guys who keep spelling out Apple's doom, seem to be under some kind of mental delusion or just can't tell reality from fantasy anymore haha.

Actually it looks like Apple is winning the markets in a big way, soon anyone else have very hard to sell highend phones than Apple, those android OEMs knows that, after iOS8 apple came lot closer to android and now their phone size going to compete directly with every big android devices. So theres very big problems coming for android OEMs in fall.
Nowww, it shows that Apple is losing the market guys, and they were about to stop the iPhone project. in the past they were saying : we really dont need bigger screen and all iPhone lovers agreed, now they introduced bigger screens and different sizes ... Hahaha, this is really LOL.
Android is the best.
Anonymous, 16 Jun 2014That's because Android has much more features, so iOS is far more easier to make it efficient.This is a myth that has been perpetuated by Android users for a long time, but is simply not true. While the OS itself may not be as customizable as Android, the ecosystem itself is stronger on a few fronts, for example actual productivity such as content creation:

I develop iOS / Android, never have i had hinderance for 1080p or not on graphics. Its just different density that is the problem.
iOS only have 1 x / 2 x needs.
Androids have 0.75 x / 1 x / 1.5 x / 2 x / 3 x / 4 x (In fact .. androids is more pain to get graphics.. have to cater for the different needs.. but a template is given at least)

The cold hard truth is that "for most people" what you have is what is best, even if it's not. If you paid $700 (or sign a 2 year contract) for it, you're gonna make it the best despite it's flaws.
Apple and Samsung sell phones not because they are the "best" phones. It is because of advertising. Advertising works. Or else they would not spend billions on it.

Meet the new boss, same as the old one
Old now he is fatter and slower
I think the iPhone is one of the best phones you can buy except they need to improve a few key features:
Right now, the speakers are decent at best. They should implement beats audio into them now that they have acquired the beats brand. Also the microphones only record mono-audio, they definitely need to be able to record stereo-audio by 2014, this is just embarrassing.
I know that the display is already set to be made bigger and better, but so far all the rumours are indicating resolutions of around 960x1770 or something like that. I don't understand why Apple can't just make the screen 1080p so it will be easier for developers to design the graphics and so we can watch full res 1080p videos. C'mon apple.
The battery life isn't long enough. Nuff said.

It is wow for 2007-2009 Apple jumped ahead with a non buggy touchscreen true then they acted like they invented the phone. Without the hard yards limited technology when mobiles first evolved we would not have the mobile standards thanks to Motorola Ericsson Nokia but apple has no respect. This is why people slag apple and anyone with a gram of common sense can see this. But apple tragics can't. brainwashed just like how the MEDIA brainwashes.. WOMD kone etc... out of the box apple is boring for todays standards. Once the stock apps are opened up boring like picture gallery go see windows and see what i mean. The touch screen is copied from nintendo ds and palm. The design from LG prada metal shell from Nokia, Sony Ericsson had metal too Seems you were born in 2007 and unaware of phones let alone technology prior to 2007
