Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Ralf Rottmann is CTO and co-founder of the largest mobile application developer in Germany, Grandcentrix. He has more Apple devices than an Apple Store and thinks he's a fanboy - yet, he's switched to the Nexus 4 completely, stating that "the latest version of Android outshines the latest version of iOS in almost every single aspect". This line in particular rings true for me as a Windows Phone 8 and Android user: "whenever I grab my iPhone for testing purposes, iOS feels pretty old, outdated and less user friendly". This will most likely be dismissed as a troll by some, but it has to be said: iOS has become stale, bordering on being outdated, and lacks several crucial pieces of functionality, neatly detailed in Rottman's article. Apple has a lot of catching up to do, or it will be Mac OS all over again.

For great success apple must make the size and functionality change at the same time. Keep a small iPhone on the old os design. Make a new big screen iPhone with a new design.

This is called hedging your bets while also being totally awesome.

The demand for bigger screens continues to grow. Every company has huge and growing size phones. The demand for an improved is also continues to grow. Two birds with one stone here boys. My logic is sound. What will apple do?

At this rate it looks like they will do nothing new. Maintain the status quo because the profit is fine. Now.
