Apple used to be all about innovation. It feels like they’ve shifted away from that, at least with the iPhone.
I grew up to the very first iMac and the oldschool iBooks, back in the days of transparent and bright colored cases. It felt like Apple’s products were always ahead of the competition in terms of quality **and** features.
But nowadays, it seems like the iPhone isn’t living up to that old mantra. Yes, the iPhone is probably (and has been for a while) the best phone you can get for the money, or even period, but there’s a catch to that. iPhones don’t have the latest features; they always seem to lag about half to a full generation behind the competition in terms of getting things like fingerprint scanners, the latest and greatest connection (3G, 4G, 5G, etc), or other little handy things.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that this means that Apple makes a bad phone. What I *am* saying, is that Apple’s MO has shifted from innovator, to ol’ reliable, at least when it comes to phones. You don’t get an iPhone because it has the latest features; you get an iPhone because you know it’s quality, and that all the features it has are executed to perfection.
How does everybody feel about this shift?
