We have never been all that kind to analysts in general, but this latest batch of comments has us completely baffled. An Equity Research firm has put out a report about Apple and iOS 7. The report makes some bold claims, like saying that iOS 7 is "far superior" to other platforms, and goes on to predict that Apple will be extremely aggressive in pursuing patent lawsuits against those it feels infringe on iOS 7...

I just don't understand why would people would get hired and concluded this kind of BS.
Are there some sufficient evidences to support it?

So it means Apple copied all Android features and patented it. If any Android or Android devices running those features will be sued...

OK how can something that came out BEFORE iOS7 infringe on iOS7.. Wouldn't it be the other way around and they could get sued for doing things like copying the WP style and live tiles..? I think so. I only hope they are so stupid, that the rumors are true and they are making iOS7 so different that old apps don't work on it. Having to rebuild their app market will put them behind WP and BB and that would be hilarious and a huge fail.

they already said iOS6 is far superior than ginger bread, but everyone knows the truth...

Yes. iOS6 was a leap forward in mapping technology, and dethroned the sparkling new 1.5 year old Gingerbread.
If Apple wants to compete with the big boys (Jelly Bean 4.2, Windows Phone 8, heck, even Blackberry 10 has some strength these days), they have to go above and beyond. I don't see that from this company. Not now.
As for UI, I quite frankly don't understand what the problem with the other platforms is. Windows 8 is as clean as can be. Android 4.x is quite minimalistic (and improving as time goes on).

From all the leaks so far... the new iOS really doesn't look innovating...

Apple must be really creative to release an overhauled iOS that smokes the competition because we already have very good stuff out there. A minimalistic functional OS = Windows Phone, a gesture based OS = BlackBerry 10, a desktop like experience based on widgets = Android. Actually this time around it's Apple the one that can be sued for copying features.

>Has superior platform
>Will file for aggressive lawsuits
Someone's gotta be wrong here... Why would any sane company with a superior product and endless billions to spend on marketing still have to file for injunctions in a court? Compete in stores, not in the courthouse. Spend on innovation, not on litigation.
Until Apple wakes up and realizes the effects of its ways, I will not buy another of their products. I couldn't care less how great iOS is; the company is still an evil empire, and they will not see my money.
