Is there any reason why Apple chooses to consolidate all its planned new features for IOS and release them all at one go, rather than spreading some of them out over the year? I mean, with so many features included in each IOS update, is it so hard to just toss out a new feature or 2 every 1-2 months? You will still have more than enough features to justify a major update every year. Plus, some improvements, such as the merging of phone numbers with apple IDs, I deem to be quite crucial. This seems the sort of thing you would want to quickly push out to all IOS5 users, rather than hold back on it. Not to mention that sometimes, the developer may have a great idea at the end of the year, but by the time it gets announced/implemented 9 months later, it is also outdated or replicated by an existing feature/app. So people have the impression that Apple stole the idea from somewhere else, where in reality, they may have come up with it first or around the same time. Your thoughts?
