In my opinion the last innovative phone from apple was the iphone 4. The iphone 4s and the iphone 5 are just mere updates of the iphone4. They didn't really bring anything new to the table. I don't see how Apple could innovate the smartphone hardware wise. And I also don't think apple is able to revamp ios in such a way that it will be new and revolutionary. I think the iphone has reached its ceiling and is at the point were notebooks are for years. Innovation has been stagnating for years in that market. Mountain Lion isn't something totally new compared to SL. Heck I don't even think its an improvement at all. Its just becoming bloated. the MBA and rMBP are going to get minor cpu/gpu/ram/ssd upgrades and they will probably hone the design and thats it but they aren't going to revolutionize the notebook industry anymore. That industry is dead and has reached its ceiling a long time ago. I believe the smartphone market is about to reach saturation pretty soon too.
