    I'm sure some of what we're seeing is the result of Apple getting so huge. One of my friends always used to say... big company = stupid.

    But, IMO, a bit part of the problem is that their priorities seem to have changed from UX being job #1, to being more profit and marketing driven. They also seem to be following more 'tech industry wisdom' than forging their own path. They remind me a bit of the '90s Apple, just with a lot more cash in the bank and top brand recognition.

    It isn't so much the hardware that concerns me, but the software. While iOS has more features now, I think it was better back around iOS 6 in terms of quality and UX. Same for macOS. The quality has gone downhill considerably, and they've destroyed so many of the core apps that once made a nice eco-system. And, (while the integration is welcomed) it's like the app teams between iOS and macOS don't ever communicate.
