  • Apple burns early iPad Pro adopters, loyal customers with Magic Keyboard incompatibility

    Define 'incompatible'. I wager the new 12.9" iPad will work just fine with the old keyboard. This is just Apple being Apple with their standards with regards to tight engineering tolerances.

  • Compared: 2021 iPad Pro vs 2020 iPad Pro and 2018 iPad Pro

    Seems like there is no need to upgrade from a 2018 11" until 11" gets the new display.

  • Apple loses three Indian executives as company struggles with iPhone sales

    I have family in India and all of them are iPhone users. However, most middle to upper class Indians have some family in the US or Canada or UK. They are wealthy enough to pay the premium in India for the iPhone but smart enough to just pick it up when they visit their family abroad or ask their family to bring one for them when they visit during the Christmas holidays. A couple of hundred dollars is still a couple of hundred dollars. The Indian mentality about spending money is what Apple really needs to understand. In my view, in order to grow sales in India Apple will have to accept a lower margin on each phone and build loyalty into the population through price. That will pay dividends in the long run.
    Profit is more important than market share. Apple needs to maintain its margins. No race to the bottom.
    The issue is marketshare not profitability; If you have minuscule market share then profit is constrained regardless . Not every market is alike. There is no requirement to race to the bottom. But you have to be price competitive. Indians recognize & appreciate Apple quality like anyone else but they simply won't pay a premium if they can easily acquire the product at a lower price.
