They have lost a ton of steam. People have gotten fed up with the mediocre software, and iPhone rehashes.

they can't get rid of their face ID and notch as ti's their pride. So there will be no further innovation from rotten apple

Funny how the notch is no longer considered premium by android companies... I'm waiting to see how apple runs away from it.

I think the best innovation for apple would be a revamped iOS, for example add an app drawer and the ability to change icons and maybe you will win some android fans.

As long term android user I never missed app drawer, I like more desktop approach like folders and icons. But mostly I use search way faster even than app drawer.

I hate Apple's approach because of my years using a desktop OS. I never liked having a bunch of clutter on my desktop and often have nothing there but the recycling bin. Opening a start menu to access my programs and opening an app drawer just feels normal to me.

They certainly need a wifi boost after a major downgrade with latest generation.

WiFi isn’t a problem, biggest problems are LTE connection reliability.

If you check wifi speeds of Xs, Xs Max and XR you might change your opinion to "they need to fix wifi and LTE".

Not a selling feature for this phone or any phone for that matter.

Does that mean they'll be as fast as Android phones now?
