The apple released its newest devices a few days back and as a huge fan of Steve Jobs, I was not satisfied at all. Jobs once said “Innovation differentiates between a leader and a follower”. And since the un-timely loss of life of Jobs, I am scared to say that apple has now become a follower instead of being a leader in the market.
The last two reveals of iPhone 5s, 6s and 6 Plus have been a catastrophe in my view. I am not a technical professional or a business professional, but I have been a customer of iPhone for a long period. I saw Steve Jobs presentation of iPhone 4 and within a number of weeks I got myself the first ever iPhone and was surprised by it. That was the second apple product I ever used and my experience with both the iMac and iPhone 4 were great because both products were one of the best in their specific market. Unfortunately the newest iPhone were incapable to entertain me and many other smartphone customers. There are an incredible number of smartphone customers who were patiently waiting that apple company is going to come out with something new now (referring to the iPhone 5s release that was almost the same cellphone as its predecessor). And they did come out with a larger edition, but did not manage to do better than several other smartphones that have been released a year or two previously. Samsung with their newest S5 did surprise the technical audience with a larger better edition of their item. So did Sony, Nokia, HTC and other producers of Android smartphones. But apple company did not wow the audience (although the phone has not hit the market yet) because of the technical specifications.
