Talk about Battery Life – 11 hours
Though Apple promises 7 hours battery backup for MacBook Air and 10 hours for iPad, other products generally last for about 11 hours. Apart from the battery updating, Apple has also altered the way it calculates battery backup time, which is different that the regular industrial practice.
Memory space 10 GB more

4 App Stores
Are there app stores for each Apple product? Software markets for Apple TV, OS X, iPad and iPhone would be simply great. Apple needs to find a solution to add new providers to Apple TV. Are they going to do it via
App Store? Or through firmware updates? Let us see.
3 United States Carriers
The most apparent contender as iPhone services provider would be Verizon. T-Mobile is also a strong candidate. T Mobile might allow Apple to own customer experience, while Verizon may deny it.
