Re: Let's talk about this design, shall we?
I agree in that I believe Apple listens as well...I am just not sure the degree. While iOS 8 is getting features that I am excited about, and believe many are excited about, they are also features I have been wishing for since iOS 5 was released in 2011. And while the argument is there that 'others do it first, Apple does it best', it still seems to me that they drag their feet in many situations.

I just struggle seeing the benefit of an ultra thin phone vs a phone with improved battery life over previous generations when coupled with the potentially battery-saving tightness of ios8/iphone 6 integration.
