This position you're taking sort of seems to require that everyone get on board with the assumption that Apple until recently was innovating every goddamn year, or even every other year, and that's a strawman argument through and through.
Just because they haven't in the last 18 months or so reinvented a genre of device that everyone else then clones for the next 5 years, they've stopped innovating?
Whatever, you are SO just looking for an Apple fight.
