Basically, Apple knows that fewer people are upgrading. So, they've devised a way to try and collect some money from people who are refusing to buy new phones.It won't work. Most people can do math. They will work their old phone 'without a net' until it truly dies and then they will buy a phone at the bottom of the pricing structure (which is still cheaper that what the plan would have cost them and newer than the old phone).
The US… a country that still doesn't use metric in everyday life… what did they expect?The common people (were talking non-tech types) in this country are VERY slow to adopt / understand technology. Hell, there are a lot of people still walking around with flip phones. Or, people who have brand new cars that don't know (or don't read their owner's manual) to hook up to bluetooth. They still drive around holding their phones to their face.So, considering the above, 9% isn't bad for the US.
