Enough Rants About the iPhone 5, It’s Just Another Apple Product

You probably heard enough rants about the new iPhone 5, when even Apple has to openly apologize for some of their hiccups but if you take a minute and rethink why you keep coming back getting a new Mac, a new iPhone or what not, then you realize that maybe, just maybe, you are asking too much.

When people buy a new iMac or Macbook replacement, it is not only because of new innovations that been added to the product line (don’t count retina display), people do so because it is time to upgrade because they need a faster machine, bigger screen size, or lighter mobile device. People buy Apple products because they are die hard fans who would not be swayed to go back to the PC.

Same with the iPhone. People just expect too much when it comes with the new release. Ok, you want bigger screens, Apple gave you that, faster processor, that’s included too, longer battery life, not that one as it is a trade off with a more slimmer design and faster processor. Along just like any other Apple products, Apple throws in a few bad apples (just like Brian Tong puts it on CNET’s Apple Byte, subscribe to it for all the good and bad news inside the Apple world). The Map application definitely on all front pages and the cheap aluminum housing, the lighting cables that makes all your iPhone/iPad obsolete (soon) and the new screen aspect ratio where not even 5% of the app developers are ready for leaving you with all the void with the extended screen estate.

But for all die hard fans out there, we all know that Apple will eventually come up with all the tweaks they need to get it right. The key is, don’t compare the iPhone with their Android or upcoming Windows phone counterparts, Apple is Apple, and you are still biting into it.
