WAITING FOR APPLE: The trendsetter of the phone industry gears up to release the next iPhone.

TOUGH OUTLOOK: The phones are impressive in their own right and sport improvements from previous models, but analysts didn’t see anything about them that would change the prospect of an iPhone-dominated holiday season.
