Oh no! Apple only released the iPhone 4S, not the iPhone 5!
It’s the start of the end of the world – it must be, man! It’s like 2012 the movie is real! There must be lots of extra neutrinos hitting the planet now, except instead of starting with earthquakes and crust displacement, they’re screwing with Apple’s iPhone production!
WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE IN A TSUNAMI OF ANALYST PREDICTIONS ABOUT APPLE BEING DEAD.
Except, when we stop and think about it, the release process so far for iPhones has been:
- iPhone 3G
- iPhone 3GS
- iPhone 4
- iPhone 4 (CDMA)
What part of that release cycle made it clear that it should have been an iPhone 5 this time?
So all the worthless, two-bit self-appointed analysts out there, who have been predicting the end of Apple with the release of every so called ‘competing’ product out there – the Zune, the Playbook, the Galaxy Tab, the TouchPad, the blah-blah-blah, yeah-yeah-yeah, will now be predicting the end of Apple over a lack of innovation, or – wait for it, you know it’s coming – “Steve Jobs has left, therefore APPLE HAS DIED”.
Please. Get a grip. Or probably better yet, let go of it and get a life.
The iPhone 5 will come out when Apple is good and ready, not a moment before. Apple will continue to march to its own release cycle, despite the demands of analysts, and they’ll release products when they know they’re happy with the state of the product.
Until then, like the 3GS was between the 3G and the 4, the 4S will undoubtedly be a good interim device between the 4 and the 5. Those who are nearing the end of a contract on a 3GS will undoubtedly look at upgrading to the 4S, and those of us who are still on a iPhone 4 contract will likely hold off until the 5.
Will Apple die because of this? Will the movie 2012 happen?
What do you think?
