Apple Techcrunch is reporting from the usual "reliable sources" that one reason why there was no discussion of iOS 5 at the iPad 2 unveiling was that iOS 5 is going to be delayed until the fall, even though previous iOS updates have been done in the spring, making it a tradition of sorts. Furthermore, the upcoming WWDC will be "software only" and will not include the unveiling of any new hardware, in particular the iPhone 5, which will presumably be released concurrently with the iOS update.

But it's because they are doing everything internally that their processor for the iPad is so much better than the competition, (CPU is as fast as the competition & the GPU is so much faster).

It is because of their partnerships that the iPhone screen has a much higher res than the competition.

It is because of the OS that they got a head-start in this generation of phones & tablets.

Apple likes to differentiate itself. In the past, a decade ago, that was considered a weakness. But I can't see how, considering their success in the last 5 years, that you can say that any more.
