    andreasaa2000 2 months ago Software updates speeding up your device? fam your sources are trash. They overheat the processor and cause your phone to lose the ability to connect to wifi. Thats what the software updates have done.

    Xtaker of lifeX 3 months ago PolyMatter i came up with a solution apple adds a way to use google play store so when you start your phone you can decide if you want google play store or app store or both

    zFg Ragnarok 3 months ago @Gate of hell Heaven bridge No you idiot it costs apple maybe 200 dollars to make the iPhone x and maybe 230 for the iPhone xs what he said was correct
  • dylan desautels
    dylan desautels 3 months ago Liar. It is well know that Apple sends updates on older models to slow them cause they want you to buy a new one. I guarantee that next year's model will look the same as all their previous devices.

    superjare23 3 months ago @Gate of hell Heaven bridge Have you looked at the price of PC parts recently? An iphone is basically a PC. The prices have dropped significantly. There isn't a reason samsung can make a $750 phone with similar capabilities to an $1400 one.
  • darknessblade
    darknessblade 3 months ago the real reason that apple ISHIT does not loose much value is because I-IDIOTS think their items are still 120% value of their original price. thus they ask bullshit value's for their ISHIT

  • thishadowithin
    thishadowithin 3 months ago (edited) I hate to burst your pessimistic bubble, but we're living in an age of the fastest technological advancements due to competition! Most of the common features are improved, but now they can work on features like Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Reality, a foldable phone (my most anticipated one). I'm also looking forward to having full control remotely with a Tesla Model S and many other features I haven't listed!

    Julien Roy 3 months ago I was really expecting a video about production cost and how they are making bigger margins per phone. Not selling me how much they are nice because you can pay for their services and maybe resell it better on Ebay...

  • trollbreeder
    trollbreeder 3 months ago Compare the iPhone to your car. You're happy with the speed, design, and storage space of your current car. That's kind of what's happening to the iPhone. You're happy with what you got, you dont need it to go faster or have a "better" design.
