It seems like the personal technology market is becoming saturated, meaning that there are so many options available, competing for the same disposable income, that the technology companies are experiencing a tail-off in product acceptance. In general, this was predictable - the difficulty is determining when it would happen.

"At least with an iPhone you don't have to constantly worry about those things, which is a plus."

Susan, that a major plus point, especially dealing with corporate and sensitive datas.

"I dont think its a good idea to release the new models just because competitors are releasing new models. If I am not wrong Samsung is planning to release flexible display smartphones and if this happens it might severely impact the sales of Apple."

Tirlapur, I know it's not good, when looking from customer angle, but they are forced to do like that because of market competitions.

The electronics industry is churning out newer and greater components and software ever year which really improve the user experience.

@t.alex, no doubt electronics industry is churning out newer phones but we are not seeing any new innovative features in the new mobiles. I think in future we will see major updates to the smartphones like flexible display, projection camera etc. I am sure such new features will compel users to upgrade their smartphones.

What's possibility of Apple making new phone?

@Wale, possibility of Apple making new phone is very high. According to some reports new iPhone will begin production in the second quarter of 2013, possibly setting it for a summer launch. Its also been reported that Apple might release low-cost iPhone.

"But since we are not getting major upgrades in the Apple products, Apple is loosing its brand value. Moreover Apple users are unhappy about certain key features like Apple maps. This will definitely impact the brand value of the Apple products."

Tirlapur, you may be right. since am using Android products (Smartphone & Tablet), am not sure about any of the Apple features, but there is no doubt that such silly things can spoil the brand name.

"Apple is competing for a limited disposable income...but in this case, they are competing against themselves."
