Yes, exactly. Agreeing with Curtis and replying to the previous post. And again, Apple has always been good about user experience - operating systems, user interfaces, and ergonomics. Like making furniture more comfortable and pleasing for you to sit in and thus making it more enjoyable to use/be productive with. Apple has never been about the actual engineering of the individual components though and that is their weakness. Because now the companies that were amazing engineers of the components are now creating the actual products themselves. The Korean and Japanese companies are producing more phones, cameras, projectors, televisions, appliances, etc...

Hey editors, next time do your job and actually do some basic editing. The chart displays the iPad Pro 9.7 and iPad Air 2 comparison, not the iPad Pro 12.9 inch iPad Pro device. Get your shit together if you want to be the best otherwise keep hiring retards to run your columns and a shitty editor to edit them. You are supposed to be better than this, so please do your job otherwise I'll just rely on Engadget or others instead of iCantread charts properly.

That's nice. Apple must pay a hefty price to have that screen produced. Oh you didn't know? Apple doesn't actually create/produce the screen technology in any of it's devices. In fact, the majority of them are produced by Samsung with LG coming in second. iphone.appleinsider.com/articles/14/05/12/samsung-once-again-apples-top-supplier-of-97-ipad-retina-displays

That doesn't mean that they built the display for the iPad overall and integrate it into iOS.

I am a designer and my creations are made by my contractor. Let's say I have designed a furniture and have my contractor/supplier to manufacture it for me and I tell them how it will be done, does that mean my contractor/supplier own my design and the process of how it will be made? I don't agree with you Silver. Samsung and LG are not the designers of the screens, they only manufacture it based on how Apple designed it (or how they will do it). That is why the technology is the same even if it made by Samsung or LG. Apple send the palns and Samsung/LG executes it. They are different companies yet they have the same technology applied, if you look at it they should sue each other for using other's designs. That is why Samsung has their own technology which is the OLED in their devices because they cannot use Apple's IPS screen design. Take a look at the latest iMac. Samsung and LG only has the 4k technology yet and Apple already has the 5k screen technology in their iMacs. Apple is known for designing their devices from hardware to software. Apple is giving business to Samsung and LG to mass produce, that's all. Also take a look at luxury fashion brands like Gucci. The designs are by Gucci and the dresses are made by their suppliers in Italy but it is still made by Gucci.

That's incorrect. At least in this case. Apple typically takes parts and components that already exist in the wild and put them together into some iDevice. The design the logic boards of most of their devices and how many of those components work with each other but the components themselves are never built or designed by Apple. Apple makes operating systems and pretty cases that hold a lot of tech that was invented, designed and manufactured by other companies. In the case of every LCD or display that Apple has ever used, they are not even designed by Apple. They are displays that exist and have been invented and designed by other companies that Apple uses in/on the products they make. In the case of the iPhone 5 for example; the only part of the drip lay that Apple designed was the class that is laminated to the digitizer. The digitizer was designed selects from any plans Apple ever had to release the iPhone 5 and was/is used in many other pie Es of tech around the world. Apple needed a digitizer that matched the specs and size they needed and they picked one. Same with the LCD. Apple is good at bringing things together. The don't invent anything except perhaps the art of patent hoarding.

Your analogy to contracting is horrible and fails. Let me make the situation more clear for you since you don't seem to understand. Samsung engineers are amazing. They have the most innovative technology for their own devices. They created a simply amazing 28mp apsc-sized sensor for the nx1, their flagship mirrorless camera. The camera has been lauded by professionals and enthusiasts. It's definitely the best apsc sensor designed, better than Sony's. And Samsung discontinued the camera because it wasn't important enough to them. That's how progressive/competitive they are. Samsung's electronics engineering is far beyond Apple's. In fact, Apple isn't even producing the components. Apple is primarily involved in the industrial design and ergonomics of the phone. Simply put, Apple is not designing the screens. Samsung engineers and the engineers at LG and Japanese companies such as Sony are doing all of the innovative things with electronics.

Agreed...Apple does not innovate, they market
