Our take: After Apple announced their new line of products on Monday, analysis weigh in on all the new features and functionality of the products.
FORTUNE — The Street's reactions to Monday's keynote are flooding in. The verdicts were mostly positive, but Apple (AAPL) analysts whose predictions outpaced reality had a little backtracking to do.
RBC's Amit Daryanani: Increasing Ecosystem Stickiness. "We attended Apple's World Wide Developers Conference in San Francisco and came away impressed with the new MacBook Pro Retina Display laptop, MacBook refresh, additional Siri capabilities, and Apple's new maps application. With 200+ features and functionalities added through iOS 6 and Mountain Lion, the install base should continue to grow and remain loyal to the Apple ecosystem, increasing 'stickiness'. We believe the refresh was expected and the next set of catalysts to watch for includes iPhone 5 launch in September/October and possible AppleTV launch in early 2013... In our view, the new maps application cuts Google out from iOS and likely increases competition between AAPL and Google as both companies attempt to monetize mobile ads. Finally, we believe the FaceTime over data addition hints at a new LTE enabled iPhone by year-end."
