It's like the Porsche 911...it kept a tried and true design for decades, only changing slight pieces to bring a modern look to the original design...then 1999, they created the 996 platform, they changed things radically, they took the pieces of the original design and changed pronounced features and people went NUTS...they hated it, the sales dropped like a rock, people were so bent out of shape about it that it was coined "Anti-Porsche"...then, 5 years later, the 997 platform was brought to the eyes of the public, it brought back the unique factors the modern day designers wanted, but it also went back to the original basics...and people praised Porsche, the sales went back up, and they have continued that design to this day...
Your idea of being "scared of change" as you labeled it is obviously the idea of someone who has never owned an iPhone...which you havent. Its the approach of someone who has a phone that doesnt run iOS, who has grown ok with the clutter and likes the cheesy gimmicks...for what its worth, you can keep them there big guy...i'll keep the same design iOS for anothe 5 years and still be happy with it.

Honestly I think Apple needs to make iTunes syncing optional. I find it so irritating that I have to sync a device, with a cable, in 2010. That seems so very palm, and so very 90's. I want Apple to come out with "AirSync" which would enable wifi syncing to iTunes if the user wanted to use iTunes. Also, they need to have android or webos style notifications. I hate those stupid looking windows 95 pop up panels that interrupt whatever I'm doing. As far as the rest of iOS? It's okay. Like the op I'm getting a little bored. However, if I were to get new notifications and optional itunes sync, I would be pretty happy. As of right now though, android is looking pretty good.

and I was a bit nervous. I wanted to get the iPhone, but I got the Evo. If I were really scared of change I wouldnt have switched. Besides the clutter and "cheesy gimmicks" is called choice- right out of the box. no need to jail break or anything.
and clearly you do not know how to read, or know ANYTHING about iOS. I own an iPad, and last I checked, that runs the same OS as the iPhone.

While the iPad does have iOS, id hardly say that comparing the layout on the iPad to the iPhone results in an identical experience...thus, as i said before, the things that you keep spouting on and on about "change" are really quite unnecessary on the iPhone, especially since it is the preferred PHONE BASED (is that clear enough for you?) operating system.
Do i want a carbon copy of iOS 4 on the next iteration? Absolutely not, i EXPECT to have some new changes to the various pieces of iOS 5...but the desire to retain the simple, clean and clutter free layout of the current iOS is not a fear of change, it is a preference...something you seem to have a hard time grasping as you continually think that YOUR OWN opinion applies to everyone who actually owns an iPhone (i'll repeat that...ACTUALLY OWNS an iPhone), but the reality is, the masses that do own iPhones, and even the loads of people who dont own them but said they preferred the iOS 4 layout when the iphone 4 was released speak volumes against your idea that the whole thing needs an overhaul...
Chris, as i've pointed out before, given you don't own an iPhone, it's hard to have a logical conversation with you about something RELATED to an iPhone...its easy to see why someone like you would want all the cheese from the HTC on the iPhone, because that is what you've had to grow accustomed to using an HTC phone...your history with an iPad doesn't really hold water because the experience between an iPad and an iPhone is so vastly different that people have even called the iPad iOS a creature of its own accord...but alas you continue to try and "prove me wrong" thread after thread, when the reality of it is...you simply make yourself less and less appealing to most people who come to this particular portion of TiPb.com.

And now after re-reading some of your replies, i realize that your comments in this thread don't really come from any intelligent thought process on the subject, but more so from a simplistic mental approach on what people have responded with...to put it in a way that will be easier for your brain to comprehend...you seem to have a lack of understanding that NO ONE in this thread is asking for a copy of iOS 4 on the next iteration...so change is welcome and expected. What people are wanting is a transition of the basic layout that does not effect its current clean and clutter free setup.
You on the other hand want an overhaul...so if people don't agree with this asinine idea, you assume they want no change at all...and it makes perfect sense now why you make such ridiculous retorts.

No doubt the UI can get boring looking. They'll tweak it, change the icons up, and that's all it takes. Nothing drastic.
Moral of the story is..people are stupid. Apple makes a living targeting stupid people, something other companies don't get (especially Palm). Apple can't change much or it risks confusing its majority of stupid mainstream users. These are devices, after all, you give your grandma because they just work right? Luckily, the iphone is capable enough to appeal to advanced users especially after jailbreaking.
When you sit and wish the OS of your choice would sell in the millions and be the market leader, then you also need to realize they have to cater to the nontechies first. If a change would confuse a 6 year old, Apple will think twice about it.

sounds like an insult to his intelligence to me.

Oh...i thought you meant the spammer, lol, sorry for the confusion (quote the comment next time for clarity maybe?)
...you're absolutely right though, i was explicitly insulting his intelligence, no question about that. It's simply too easy to do...as far as it being rude and unneeded, im ok with that.
