Diane Bullock, who obviously never saw a previous iPhone event, says this one was the most boring. Ever.
Nothing about the newest flagship smartphone truly differentiates it from any other. With few exceptions, it merely pushes the needle a little further in a specs war; improving upon existing systems without pioneering novel ones.
Diane doesn’t understand that other smartphones don’t have a 64-bit CPU, or a motion processor, or fingerprint identity sensor.
What passes as paradigm-changing at Apple these days is, in a nutshell, an updated operating system that boosts speed and provides a longer battery life. The camera is marginally better, too.
Paradigm change? Seriously? You’re going with that?
When will the tech press recognize that Apple’s modus operandi hasn’t changed much. Disruptive innovation followed by iterative improvements.
