    A dual-lens camera, stereo speakers, and water resistance are expected.

    "Water resistance"
    "32GB storage"
    Things that should be obvious in a high-end phone these days. Of course they are gonna try to sell that as super rare features that Apple invented. I'm glad to see that they aren't going crazy with the screen size. But I wonder what new features they came up with to make repairs even more difficult. The kill-switch home button on the 6 was genius. How about pressure-sensitive screws that delete all your data when touched?

    I don't really see why phones (Apple or otherwise) need these big launch events these days - we all know what it's going to do - and it wears thin being sold a slight incremental improvement every time.

    Maybe it's just me but the arrangement of the circles look like a pair of glasses, could Apple announce a AR/MR device like Hololens ? though that seems to be a bit too soon for that as they have only been buying up AR tech recently unless it was for patent protection.

    Probably is just another boring camera upgrade.

    I don't think you can patent a colour

    Although you can copyright or trade make a design that uses specific colours

    Cadbury's got a trademark on their Purple (and I'm fairly sure Orange TM'ed their Orange). But those cases it was indicative of the brand rather than one of their specific products. Apple might have enough money left to attempt something like this, I couldn't tell you what I thought their "colour" was though. Black?

    On a fairly serious note I really am not sure they've done enough to arrest sliding sales...
