I think one other factor is that the iPhone has been a very stable platform ....good for sale of apps.....but it also means there is not much reason for excitement about the next iteration.

I am not even sure where we are in the Apple iPhone iteration count.

So unless Apple adds something amazing to the iPhone it could be that the next iteration could be met by yawns.

I remember the IBM Simon project.

It never got out of the starting blocks.

But I take your point.

Apple in decline

Interesting on many levels. First off, I think it's important to recognize that Apple's iPhone shipments are projected to grow at a healthy level. It's not as though the iPhone is dead. Far from it. But the fact is that iPhone is more expensive than most, and Apple commands a healthy premium. Meanwhile, other smartphones from Samsung (whether it is because they ripped off Apple or not) and others have gotten a lot cooler. And I think the iPhone, as a status symbol, is not what it once was. I have friends with Android phones and in a way I'm kind of envious.

Apple Did Not Invent the Smartphone

Apple did not invent the smartphone! Not by any stretch of the imagination.

The first smartphone is generally considered to be the IBM Simon, but there had been many modern smartphones on the market by the time the first iPhone arrived (e.g., the SE P800, LG Shine, etc.)

Apple did make the smartphone better, but they certainly were not the first, even if the then Motorola Razer-obsessed US hadn't noticed.
