 Undoubtedly. I would imagine large portion of Apple's costs were fixed or relatively fixed (as opposed to a smaller portion of variable costs) , and as the store has boomed, it has become more profitable. Or perhaps the equipment infrastructure is more mature and not being depreciated the same. Or even if it is, as the revenue pie gets bigger, the cost is relatively smaller.
Wow.   I don't post here much anymore, but I saw solipsism's link today. Sad news indeed, always enjoyed reading his posts. Funny how the death of someone you never actually met or had anything resembling an actual conversation with can affect you.   Best wishes to his family. Death sucks.
Sounds like whining to me. Such a non issue.
AirDrop has nothing to do with geography, it has to do with BT 4.0, which the 4S lacks. AirDrop is available on iPhone 5 and higher. So not a bug.
Really? You think teens working is a bad thing? In my opinion more teens should work for a living. Working is part of education, and it teaches the value of a dollar, a hard day's work, etc. Cliche? Yes, but true. Kids having to work and make their own money are less likely to waste it.I started working when I was 15, and continued working while I paid my own way through school. Way better education than anything taught in the classroom.I'd say the converse of what you...
Have fun in the past.I'm running iOS 7 on a 5S and, other than a few random "reboots" (Apple icon appears on black screen for 5-10 seconds, and then everything goes back to normal), I have no issues. And the benefits over iOS 6 (I can't imagine ever going back) are tremendous.
I would imagine "software issues" is referring to a diagnostic showing a lot of app crashes or springboard crashes. The diagnostic they run shows this.
Why doesn't it? Apple has approaching 50% market share in smart devices in the U.S.I imagine the "Own an iPhone" is qualified as a percentage of (middle class and up) teens who own a smart phone.
Make sure you include the iPad mini in there. It is broken out separately.
I'm so tired of this moronic drivel about Apple over charging for storage increases.1) Of course it doesn't cost $100 for Apple to go from 16GB to 32GB. If it did, Apple would be selling it for cost. Why would they do that? Oh that's right, it's evil for companies to make money.2) People who say the cost is really only a few dollars a) don't have access to Apple's supply chain and b) are looking at the cost of CHEAP NAND.3) It is entirely possible that the 16GB entry...
