Re: This is not unusual
You are right it's not unusual but in this instance it does have an air of "Hmmmmm" about it.
The guy was really ill for sometime and no matter what marketing BS they gave I bet his input was minimal for quite a while. If I was terminally ill with a family and several hundred million in the bank I know I'd rather be doing something else than discussing the whatnots of the 2015 iPhone 7. If he was working on that days before he died then that makes it all the sadder and weirder.
The thing is I'm sure I read in a few place that the iPhone 5 was listed as the 'last Jobs mobe' or 'the 5 had little input from Jobs'.
So if the next two STILL have input from him (really) I can only imagine it will be stretched out till at least the iPhone 9 by the time we get to the 7's release.
And maybe even beyond.........
