Marketing will want to put the focus on a few products at a time. If you release them all at once some smaller accessories may not get enough Spotlight for Apple’s liking.
Gotta get those customers to buy a new watch, then hit em with the pricier phones they just can’t say no to. That way you make $1,700 over 2 months vs just $500 or $1200 🤣

Yup. You also can’t wait too long so the message that your company has new stuff out gets to the folks buying Christmas presents too. Later than October will be an issue for their marketing folks too :)

Well HomePod is an AirPlay speaker but let’s talk iPad. What’s stopping you from using a cellular iPad with Skype for the occasional call?
Exactly. You’re absolutely right! However, it would be SO satisfying to have this fully instantiated. At this point Apple needs to be bringing new (and rekindling familiar) experiences/workflows to their “stack” (hardware+software) as we have so few “oh wow” moments anymore like we used to with the first few iPhones and iPad. That’s all I’m trying to say.
