Everyone has been complaining about how boring the iPhone 7 update is going to be, and how they are going to skip it altogether and wait for the big update with the 2017 iPhone. But Apple is no fool - they know the 7 is going to be a boring update, so what do they do? Give you all back the much heralded slate/space black color option. Apple knows how much this color was loved, and they also know that that alone will be enough for thousands of people to upgrade who otherwise wouldn't. And besides, can you imagine what the QA/QC lottery will be on the 2017 iPhone? I shudder to think of what this forum will be like in the days/weeks/months following the release of THAT phone.
