This is exactly what I did. I love the 5S. I do wish it had Pay, but since only half of the major retailers will support it by the end of this year, I can certainly afford to wait until even next Summer to upgrade. I also agree the 5S is just a tad too big. It's funny I was just using my 3GS this morning to pull up some info off an app that isn't supported under iOS8 anymore, and realized just how perfect that phone is to hold in the hand -- I can reach all the controls...
Chicken and egg. If Apple makes a push to encourage the clueless customers to start using Pay and half the major merchants don't accept it, then those customers may decide it's not worth the hassle and set Pay adoption back further. They seem to be approaching this the correct way. Implement on the current iPhone, expand coverage to earlier iPhones with the Watch, introduce new handsets encouraging older handset customers to upgrade and get Pay, continue expansion with...
And this is why it's not a priority for the next "free" iPhone to have Pay. The iPhone 7 introduction's "free" phone, yes. The 6S companion, no.
I never said they did. However, the buck stops with Apple. Their company, their responsibility. And as I stated, clearly they haven't streamlined Beats manufacturing to the level they have their own products. Whether or not their business model is just like Apple's once the designs leave the country ... Apple has much tighter control of both the supply chain and manufacturing standards. Just because Beat's sources their manufacturing to Taiwan and China, doesn't mean it's...
That's what all the analysts say too. However, how can Apple have a subsidiary that produces substandard products? It taints the brand, especially when they are putting out headphones that clearly match the Apple product line.Apple got out of the audio product line twice. Hard to say if this is an attempt to get back in or not, but if they aren't planning on absorbing the beats product brand fully, then they should spin it off sooner rather than later, and just keep the...
I hope the purchase of Beats turns out to be worth it. Seems like Cook may not have quite absorbed Beats manufacturing fully into the Apple way of doing things just yet. I wonder who makes the battery, and just where the problem occurs ...?
Nope. MagSafe was a huge Innovation. Anybody can slap an off the shelf USB connector into their hardware. MagSafe saved my laptop on more than one occasion, and the ease of use was unrivaled. In contrast, power is usually the only thing I connect my Mac to. Then I add and remove drives as I need them. So no issue with plugging them in the old fashioned way. Now I have no choice ... the reality is, on the MacBook you need an adapter to plug anything else into at the same...
Perhaps, but I think this shows a greater overall strategy at Apple. Those watches were the tip of the iceberg.
It always amazes me around here that some people won't aknowledge basic facts if they distort the ivory tower image of Apple they have. All the rhetoric that came out of Apple regarding "phablets" was negative, but more than just negative comments against their competition, they trumpeted the original 3.5" iPhone as the "perfect" size for functionality. The 4" iPhone was heralded as a design achievement that gave users a larger screen without compromising the perfect...
He also pointed out in that interview that the iPhone looks "old" because of the way the screen fails to blend in with the borders. Sharp introduced edgeless display on their Aquos Crystal, so that might be one solution Apple might pursue, but that would result in a redesign of their iconic look for the iPhone. And I agree, for the present there may be no way to milk more power out of the existing battery technology, so the obvious way to increase it would be to go with a...
