If you’ve been holding out for the iPhone 7, you’re probably going to be really disappointed

I know I am. Totally disappointed.

Let me let you in on a little secret: Every iPhone has pretty much been like the one before it. Let me let you in on a second little secret: Every iPhone coming out will be pretty much been like the one before it.

It’ll just have some incremental improvements. Longer battery, better screen, thinner, bigger, better camera, more storage. Stuff!

Go back to the original iPhone. Was the iPhone 2 that different? How about the 3? 3g? 4, 4s? Now compare the the 5s to the 2. The 7 will esentially be a 6s. Hate to break that to you, but if you read the secrets above (or bought more than one iPhone in your life) you already know this. It’ll have a different form factor that’s similar to the 6, and it’ll have some new features (all are rumors at this point).

I think there’s a good chance the iPhone 7 will disappoint the pundits, because that’s what AAPL does best (disappoint critics).

My favorite articles to read are the ones by iPhone users who say they are on the brink to changing to another platform as soon as the competitor’s phones are better. These people buy the iPhone, but there’s no making them happy. Other companies are always just about ready to ship something better than what Apple is shipping now. I guess one of these days these folk will be correct. iPhone-Killers unite!
