Apple is done. Pack your old technology and join blackberry. Android will take over soon. Once they perfected their OS, then I promise you, apple will be done. Apple is nothing more than a name to a software nothing more. The build quality and their high prices for crappy no innovation product. The innovation was when the 4S came out, after that, its done! The company is so desperate to sell phones they used recycled iphone 5 to make up for the SE so they dont loose money. What a joke. I hope this company goes down in history just like the blackberry, they had it, it was the only thing people used, and forgot about it. Its where Android sits now that matter, a platform that is full of possibilities and people can make more things to a project and use. Its called innovation, not being stuck with a locked OS that cant do nothing. Also a crazy price Macbook Pro laptop that uses PC based (cough Intel) and with the nice lack of software on it. That too wont make nothing. Oh poor mans excuse is, well whatever it does come with works flawlessly. You guys think that iPhone never crashes. I have all the iPhone all the way up to the iPhone 6S. They are all the same crap, only things has changed is the speed and the crappy metal design. Which of course copied the designed from HTC lets not forget the lines in the back. Im sure the same guy here will come and comment to this comment, because he likes trolling on here trying to defend apple, and if he does comment, I say this when he does, he is a gay as TIM COOK is :) Dare to comment. And you accept that you are gay ;)

Why do you hope Apple goes down? Competition is good, you know. I also don't like policy from apple but I always have a choice to purchase different product. And as long I have that option and rest of the people, we should be happy. To make it simple for you: If you don't like it, don't buy it. BTW, like Android Samsung smartphone are any better as far as locked system goes? That locked bootloader on snapdragon is ridiculous. Just saying.
