And this was like: go and upgrade, and stop complaining! We have to show to our investors good numbers in the next quarter.

Except, due to the numerous outstanding performance issues, their sales have dropped significantly. In response to their own figures, Apple is now threatening to no longer track ANY unit sales, but Wall Street reacted, and while their profits are up, their stock took a one-day tank!

Could that be because people got upset on their practice (high price for their products for 1 year of joy, then go buy the new one). They have to show some more love to their customers. People will probably buy them anyway but now they think twice or wait for better prices.

Unfortunately, the numbers/stats don’t support that popular view. Clearly Apple users don’t have an issue spending significantly more for reliable products (their main positive attribute for Apple products). At the same time, Samsung, which has long pushed the ‘more features at cheaper prices’ has been struggling lately with much faster declines than Apple is facing. Given those conflicting stats, the strongest claim for this year’s falling iPhone sales are their outstanding unresolved issues, which counter Apple’s primary ‘reliable products’ marketing edge.

Who said something about Samsung... we should be able to comment/complain about Apple and not directly jump to the competition. It’s like you have a favorite... we should be able to voice an opinion without going to the other side. They need to lower their prices and that’s it (it’s not like everything got so expensive and they need to recoup, but purely greed!)

My iPhone X shows 90% for battery health, ain’t taking the risk and putting the replacement program to good use now. So is any iPhone X having shutdown problems? It’s too fast for that... haven’t heard a thing about this.

So far there haven’t been any reports, but despite the abysmal press, Apple is doubling down on throttling older phones as a way of ‘pursuading’ users to upgrade before they want. However, you can now turn the throttling off, though Apple is betting few users will know how!

How about older iPhone?

Then Apple in addition to abandoning the iPhone X, you'll also slow me down. I don’t ask for this.

As always, “may not degrade performance” translates as ‘is likely to be just as problematic!’ I’d turn it off as SOON as I upgrade, but since 12.1 threatens to wreck ALL of my photos, I can’t upgrade, and since Apple has officially abandoned the X, they’re unlikely to address the issue. ?

Wow! New “feature”. How is this a good thing?!? Atleast they will add a way to turn it off.
