    Without jumping into the hyperbole train, I think the tone of "used to be innovative" concerns the end-marketed product. When the iPhone came out, everyone had to take notice and now it is a ubiquitous product around the entire world. That's incredible and probably a once-in-a-generation development.

    New processors and processes are awesome—but they evolve and change over time. For many people, it's unfortunately not exciting even though it involves many engineers.

    To me, the current announcements of Apple feel like the Dell/IBM/Microsoft of previous years. I want my computer to be fast, but I don't want to pay attention to an i9 processor or how many gigs of RAM are in my phone. I imagine that many others are the same way, hoping for a wholly new product to jump on rather than seeing the Apple-version of things that exist.
