This is what Apple does every year improve camera pixels a little bit, improve processor, update bluetooth and you've been charging premium prices $750++ no wonder you have $250 billion cash. Innovate Apple! Every year 16GB iPhone wow this year 32GB how long have you been making 16GB models and ripping consumers off. Samsung has OLED, wireless charging for many years now. They don't bring anything new... they improve a little bit then people pay full price for their phones and add to their stock pile of cash.

Yeah keep lying to yourself Apple. It is because of that stupid decision on removing the headphone jack that brought the 7 down. Blame "courage" not leak. There will always be leak and it's not the reason why the 7 did not sell well

Apple is quick at pointing fingers at elsewhere but not at themselves. They're not only lieing to themselves but to us consumers too. Well I personally didn't go for the iPhone 7 bcoz of the headphone jack, so stayed with the 6s. But I wouldn't only say bcoz of not adding the headphone jack on the iphone 7 which lowered their stock, their lack of behind in technology too. & Any1 here that wanna act or be ignorant can get a life bcoz ppl ain't that stupid.

Tim Cook's comment about the iPhone 8 rumors was a clever strategy. Apple never responds directly to rumors or confirms that they are developing new products before they are revealed officially by the company. Without confirming any of the rumors about the iPhone 8, Cook is drawing attention to the rumors, which in effect helps promote public awareness about the many rumors on the next iPhone. This helps to pre-sell (or at least make people more aware and talk about) the upcoming iPhone 8.

Maybe.. or maybe it's also true due to the fact that iPhone 7 is near identical model with the iphone 6

I'm currently on my 2nd 7 plus, this one is Product Red 256gb, prev was the Jet Black 128gb, currently own AirPods since December and IPad Pro 9.7 w/ Apple Pencil & Smart Keyboard & ATV4. I have owned every version of the iPhone, iPad and AppleTV & loved them all and will upgrade to whatever the 10th anniversary iPhone comes out.

That's just corporate bullshit! As a customer, I'm more than just happy rocking both, my iPhone 6S & 6, not enough substance on the iPhone 7 to make me upgrade. They're lying to themselves.

Nothing important to read here. 10th anniversary iphone 8? Really? They couldn't come up with something more appealing than a silly iPhone 8? I'll wait 5 more years or until what i have dies. Still not good enough for 1000 mobile phone only one generation up from the last.
