You have to read footnote 1 in https://support.apple.com/en-jo/ht207428 for confirmation that once Messages in iCloud is enabled, messages are now stored in general iCloud storage (which still counts towards your free 5GB or paid storage plan), rather than iCloud Backup storage.
Since most of the storage space is used by images and attachments, it would great to have a one-tap option to select all images / attachments, to delete them in batch (instead of having to select each of them one at a time one before tapping trash, or by deleting the entire conversation)
Apple products, iPhones and otherwise, are premium products and should come complete with a premium charger and EarPods. What trillion valuation does Apple need to achieve to ‘offset’ the cost anything let alone 5G? Got too many chargers and EarPods kicking around? Feel free to donate them away or give them to your local Apple Store so you can feel good about helping Apple ‘offset’ their costs. If Apple starts selling cars, will the Gen 2+ models be sold without wheels or chargers since you can just transfer your Gen 1 components over? I think it’s just a greedy way to appear more environmentally conscious.
Apple still includes a plastic logo sticker in every box, changes the phone dimensions which prevents you from reusing a protective plastic case that could easily last 5-7 years, and includes a charging cable that can’t be used until you buy something it can plug into. I think their green intentions contain a mixed message.
I think it comes down to trust, specifically the lack there of. Right or wrong, people don’t trust one, some, or all of:
- Local, state, or federal health authorities
- Same levels of government
- Tech companies
- Each other
In some cases, lack of trust is for good reason. In other cases it unfortunately is by one’s own ignorance, fear, greed, or selfishness.
A pandemic appears to be a decent measure of humanity’s willingness to work together to solve our common threats, nation by nation.
