Apple just keeps making this old hardware still usable for basic web and FaceBook 9-10 years after launchAmazing? More like pitiful.The Apple //e was in continuous production from 1983 to 1993, was fully supported the whole time. The Macintosh Plus was in continuous production from 1986 to 1990, and ran current System versions from 0.7 to 7.5.5, 11 years of current software support. The iPhone 6+ is only 9 years old, and hasn't been able to run the current version of iOS since 2018, it's only gotten security patches.
You seem to have been asleep for twenty years; this must all be very confusing for you.
We're currently in the third decade of the twenty-first century. We have these little things — we call them "phones", but they're really hand-held computers, and most people replace them every two or three years. Yeah, it's a little disconcerting, I know.
I'm sure someone will be around presently to help you orientate yourself.

I would really like Apple to deliver superior chips, but once Intel has access to advanced chip manufacturing (from TSMC or their own) I fear that Apple (with all the staff fluctuations) will be not able to compete in the long term.
DOOMED, I say!

Fuckin' Commies, those Americans.
It would not surprise me if they're monitoring keystrokes. They certainly monitor every single keypress within their apps otherwise.

But they’re probably going to try to go portless before that even happens.
a) you now have a four- or five-year-old iPhone X? okay.b) did you buy those AirPods from Apple or another reputable dealer?I ask because „illegally modified“ might be code for „counterfeit“. Counterfeits may come from the same production line, but „off-shift“. So they can be „real“, but may not be „official“, in which case Apple cannot deal with them if the serial numbers or chip IDs or whatever don’t match their listings.

We used to sell these for iPhone and iPad.
They were sadly never practical for how I use and transport my gear, but I always loved them. Beautifully made, lovely irony between their quaintness and their content, and it's just such a great idea.
I'd love to have one, even though I'm afraid I'd never use it.
Highly recommended, even for the price.
