Thanks for your response! This is really great information. I absolutely believe that the people at Apple still care tremendously about their work and are some of the best in the world at what they do.
It’s just sad to see Apple lose the “edginess” they once had, but like you said, the vast majority of people don’t care and Apple needs to cater to their now enormous mainstream market.
Like you, I’m also glad to see them constantly pushing forward. As I mentioned in the article, I’m extremely excited about their emphasis on AR and machine learning, and the A11 chip in the iPhone X/8 is a powerhouse.
