My sense is if you want to work for Apple, you'd better be at the top of your game.
One reason for getting a phone every year is to hand older phones to other family members. For a family of four, it makes sense. 
It doesn't necessarily follow that what Apple is able to do in China they will be able to do in the U.S. It's access to reliable (and "accurate") consistent data pure and simple.
