Re: "If the 7S doesn't do something spectacular"
Widgets on the Home screen.
The iPhone Home screen has barely changed from the original array of static icons - the only new things are that the calendar icon now has the actual date and the email has a thing saying how many unread emails in the inbox.
My phone has both of those, yet also shows me the time at the international offices, the weather forecast, the alarms I have set, the subjects of recent emails, my next flight and next appointment.
When any of it becomes unimportant I can remove it, and when new info becomes important to me I can get an app that puts it right on my Home screen.
Usually in several different ways so I can pick the one I like.
- Eg when on holiday I pull work emails completely off the home screen.
