“My original iPhone can’t even create folders or multitask, but no one else has one so it makes me like fifty times more awesome than anyone using an iPhone 3GS,” Heine writes. “You’re probably snickering at this ridiculous idea that a unique design completely trumps functionality. I don’t blame you. However, a lot of Apple fans are falling into the trap of this same ideology that claims the looks of the new iPhone are more important than the functionality it will bring with it. Many claim that if Apple “only” releases an iPhone 4S it will be a huge disappointment to fans. ‘We’ve waited 16 months for a new iPhone and all they’re giving us is a minor spec bump? This is crap!’”
Heine writes, “What some Apple fanboys don’t understand is the iPhone 4S isn’t ‘just a spec bump.’ The new iPhone, regardless of its physical appearance, will be a significant improvement to the greatest phone ever made. One thing to consider regarding the delay of the next iPhone is whether Apple has been waiting 16 months for the hardware to be perfected or whether they’re trying to get iOS 5 right. Clearly the delay has been software related and not about hardware. The absence of an upgrade to the iPhone’s exterior looks doesn’t matter because the software upgrades from iOS 5 are huge.”
