That's what I mean, but good sales or not, it needs it bad.

Not good in sales? It might seem minuscule compared to other devices but it's accounts for a billion dollars in sales a year for apple.
af - October 17, 2014 at 1:52am
Not sayings it's bad but nothing has changed in a long time and this might be the only thing left on apples products roadmap release chart as mentioned before. Even the previous article mentioned it was going to be released any week now which is estimated in October especially including the patent.
