iOS 7 is, in many ways, a beautiful new foundation on which to build for the next 5-10 years. But if that beautiful new foundation’s cloud service still mysteriously loses days of work with no way to troubleshoot and no recourse, I have a very difficult time seeing how that foundation is little more than change for the sake of it.
Maybe Apple has some incredible iCloud improvements and truly new ways to work and play in iOS 7 to show off at its fall event. Why we need to wait an entire year to see some of these improvements is another mystery to solve at another time.
I have questions. An open mind, yes. But questions. Certainly more than I’ve had in recent years.
Phil Schiller really nailed it when he said people don’t use stand-alone docks anymore, which was his reason for why Apple doesn’t make one for the iPhone 5 or iPad mini and their new Lightning connectors. I’m sure that means Apple will stop selling the iPad 1 dock, iPad 2 + 3 dock, iPod shuffle dock, and iPhone 4 + 4S dock any day now.
Phil Schiller doesn’t watch Walt Mosspuppet.
