iphone will die if they don't do a major hardware and OS makeover, this is basically the same thing that happened to nokia, they always had phones with amazing hardware but the symbian OS grew old, people got tired of it, now apple is repeating this very same mistake, the worst part is that it's not only OS wise, but also hardware wise.

i also think that this is the same reason why microsoft is trying to innovate with their windows OS,

No mention of BB10...I know it may sound crazy but maybe the reason iPhone sales are slumping is because the new Blackberries are coming out shortly.

I think you just invented the perfect word to describe Apple.

Nothing wrong with iPhones hardware. The problem is iOS is old. It does not matter what it does. I am bored of iOS ever since iPhone 4 and after so 2 iPhones have been using outdated OS. It seems that people bough iPhone for the Wow factor which not does not exist.

I see this comment in every iPhone/iOS related article. What exactly is "outdated" about iOS? The UI of iOS is what separates it from Android (Vanilla, TouchWiz, Sense) and Windows Phone 8 and allows for brand recognition. I can understand that some aspects of the Android OS are missing but overall I think Apple has been updating iOS accordingly to fit within the current smartphone OS landscape.

#1 No toggling wifi, etc, from the home screen - you have to go into settings, then Wi-Fi, then change, then go back to whatever you were doing. I had a homescreen WiFi toggle on my Touch Diamond.

#2 No weather on the lockscreen - you have to unlock, then pull down the notifications center. I had weather on the homescreen on my Touch Diamond.

#3 No battery percentage for the iPod touch without a jailbreak. I don't see why this isn't an option given the iPhones have it. It's also a feature I had on my Touch Diamond, and on phones older than that.

#4 No live wallpapers. The GS3 has this (IMO it's fair to compare the iPhone 5 with iOS 6 to the GS3 on 4.04 given the GS3 is older)

#5 No removing or hiding apps you don't need - best you can do is put them in a folder which still takes up space on your homescreen (Newsstand, Stocks, and FaceTime are some examples for me). You can hide apps you don't need on the GS3.

#6 Only 1 app can be launched from the lockscreen - the camera. This forces you to take longer to get to other apps when you combine it with #2 and the need to unlock the phone to get to the notifications center.

#7 (Arguable though). You only have the stock keyboard. While good, it has no features like Swype where you don't need to lift your finger. The only thing you can do is press each key individually (not accounting for autocompletion of words) which, while we're used to it and it works well, isn't innovating. Note that Google has now made that Swype-esque keyboard default in 4.2 IIRC.

#8 It's a music player, but yet it (my iPod Touch) can't make autoplaylists on the device. If the rationale goes that you no longer need iTunes to use the device and set it up etc, then why can't I make autoplaylists on the device?

In following, #9: If I can rate songs on the iPod, why can't I make playlists that say "all songs with 4 stars" or sort by ratings, or do anything with the ratings without going back to iTunes? Playlists just become literally, a play list. We've come further than that and this is functionality even WMP Mobile had IIRC

Yes, the OS has been updated, but it still looks pretty much the same as it did when the iPhone first shipped. Android is moving away from that, and so is WP8 (albeit more slowly)

Apple don't need to wow anyone with their phones to get sales... the fact that it's from apple is more than enough.
