Now I Get It: Here’s Why Apple Launched The iPhone 4S Instead Of The iPhone 5

By Henry Blodget | Daily Ticker

Provided by the Business Insider:

When Apple launched the iPhone 4S instead of the iPhone 5 last week, I initially thought it was a disappointment and a mistake.

If Apple had launched the actual iPhone 5, I thought, they’d have sold more of them.

And that’s probably right… [etc., etc.]

BAH HUMBUG!!

First, the iPhone 4s IS a big advance! (See: The big Apple (non?) Event.) But the important thing is…

If you do not understand why the 4s is here and not the 5, then you do not understand Apple – and this goes to Mr Dediu as well (for whom I have the most profound respect!). That is to say, you do not understand one of Apple’s primary MOs.

Simply this: Apple introduces technology when it is ready. Not before.

The A6 chip is not ready, the other features Apple wishes to add are not ready. The technologies are not here – yet. When they are, they will be in the very next iPhone.

(Siri is a slight exception – it is available but they have labeled it beta.)
