My iPhone 6+ had this sudden shutdown issue. I don’t know if my experience was unique. My shutdown issue appeared to have been caused by me charging my 6+ With my iPad charger. I had starting using the iPad charger after reading it would charge the phone faster. Once I ceased that practice and used the supplied charger; no more phone shutting off with the battery indicator showing anywhere from 30-40% battery life remaining.
I don’t see the big deal either. Has anyone ever used a credit card that doesn’t show signs of wear and tear? All my bank and credit cards have wear from just being stored in my wallet. Pretty much the only place I use my card is at the gas station. Since Chase bank cash machines use nfc I can deposit and withdraw money with just my iPhone.
Consumers will need to buy the "fixtures" to remove the displays. That will cost a fair amount based on what they are listed for AASPs on consignment.
iFixit loves it because they will be able to buy the fixtures and re-use them. It has always felt like it was about their right to repair (and Louis Rossman's), not the consumers.
Apple hatched a plan to get better terms from Qualcomm. A company many believe have used their dominant position to extract more money than they deserve from necessary patents needed to build a phone and other mobile devices. I don’t see how Qualcomm presenting this helps their case. To me; it just proves Apple was tired of paying exorbitant fees and was willing to do whatever it takes to make the more reasonable.
