Apple After Steve Jobs

iPhone 5S + iOS 7 Intro > iPhone 5 + iOS 6 Intro

Remember last year iPhone event? This was all about iOS 6 and the iPhone 5. We remember iOS 6 not only because of Maps failure to impress and be up the Apple’s usual standards but also for the lack of innovations. Many looked and reviewed the iPhone 5 as a meh upgrade from the iPhone 4S while others said it was the best smartphone on the planet.

This year is another story and here is why.

The big change this year will come from iOS 7 coupled with an incremental update of the iPhone 5 (the iPhone 5S will be an incremental upgrade) and you get something quite different. I predict people will even think that the iPhone 5S is a more innovative version than the iPhone 5 just because of the perceived changes coming from iOS 7.

Change as Innovation: How do you know?

People saying that Apple didn’t innovate with the iPhone 5 are so clueless. They look at iPhone 5 pictures dans say: meh? They have to hold it an feel it before making any judgement. 

If Samsung is so “rapidly innovating” maybe it is because their original smartphones were so crappy and in need of major improvements. Who knows.

When does a device change is seen as an innovation instead of just a mere improvement? Where do you draw the line?
