It’s clear only a trolling fanboi would ask for evidence of the following statements;
"Apple is falling behind a bit…" because there are "…so many (things) available on other platforms."
"Apple is…too stubborn to jump onto some of the things its competitors have been embracing."
If "…the next generation of iPhone/iOS…isn’t something literally game changing, the attrition will increase for sure."
as they are entirely self-evident in and of themselves. Apple’s evolutionary, sustainable product development practices are unable to keep pace with the industry requirement for innovative, disruptive hardware and software every 6-9 months.
As they are no longer able to change the game, it’s logical they should just accept their position in the technology scheme of things. In god we trust, the evidence is in.
