That's a good question..... it's been improved in practically ever way. And yet, that's not good enough for the jaded public.

What about the iMac?!?! I want a 30" iMac with Retina Display - or at least an updated iMac! OMG -iMacs are nearly 500 days old. Seriously, Apple. Ugh.

Come on Apple, where's the true innovation? Just adding a few more pixels to the display and supporting LTE doesn't make it a killer phone.
That's why they doubled the CPU and GPU speed, made it lighter and thinner, improved the camera, and made it more durable.

My mind isn't blown, but it's a good release. I have a 4 and I was ready to update.

My guess is that it will get a quiet update, or be announced next month along with the iPad Mini.

I'll be curious to put my hands on an iPhone5 and see if my thinking changes, but there is nothing here that compels me (not even a little bit) to pre-order an iPhone5 to replace my current iPhone4.

I'm still hoping for a major iMac update (even though my "Early '09" 24" iMac is still performing well). The frequency of my Apple product upgrades has gotten steadily slower over time. The last time I got excited about a new product was when I replaced my (leg searing) 15" MBP with the new 13" MBA.

Very disappointed in the Nano but I do like the iPhone 5. Not very sure that it will be better than the Galaxy IIIs but time will tell. Here's to them actually making a watchlike nano with Siri and bluetooth! I'd love to not have to pull out my phone every time I get a text. Yes there are watches out there but Apple would have made an amazing one!

For everyone bitching about innovation, what is left to innovate? NFC? I think we all need to recognize that the future of smartphones is incremental updates.

The black version looks VERY nice and elegant. I hope they bring up more white pictures, compare them better.

It is more than just specs...

If you are only focused on the specs, you missed the detail engineering, which makes Apple, well, Apple.

Sapphire window on camera lens...really is scratch proof...only glass harder than sapphire is diamond...

8 hours of LTE talk time (same as S3) with just a small bump up in battery size...that blows away all the battery nay sayers.

Overall underwhelming presentation.

The whole revolution --> evolution --> revolution cycle of the iPhone is gone. They will all be minor updates from now on.

I'll buy the iPhone 5 probably but Apple could have done more. Plus considering they spent so much time previewing things they showed at WWDC and recapping what they covered showed how little they had to bring out this time around.

Can't wait to get my pre-order in for the magical and revolutionary extra row of app icons!!!!!!!! Paying 30 for a simple, I mean extremely high tech and small cable adapter as Apple has apparently never heard of a micro USB port is also great!!!!!!!!!

Personally... I think Steve would kick you in the ass! What's left to innovate? We could have said this a long time ago. Keep thinkin Different!

Question. Did they mention if the GM of iOS6 will be seeded to the devs anytime before next week?

Nice incremental upgrade but me needs some instant gratification. C'mon Apple, give me something to download today...
