I would really like to have a wireless charging mat integrated nicely in the display stand...EsquireCats said:Would be nice if it had: wireless charging at the base for the phones, trudepth camera for login, and preferably some kind of wired audio out port. (The mac pro's port is too far away.)
I've already ripped the wi-fi crap out of the Mac Pro, and have my desk and home free of any wi-fi emitting radiation. Bliss.
You taking down the radio towers in your neighborhood as well?
As opposed to pricing them much lower and losing money on each iPhone sold?
I think Apple actually DID that. They made the XR. I just replaced a dead iPhone last week, and I admit being hard pressed to find a reason to buy the XS. The XR is a really good value.
The only place I've seen that written is by users like you and me who just assume it must cost more because it's newer and cooler. We don't actually know that.I remember reading that the camera array and sensors cost more. I could be wrong
Are they? Are Apple's components really much more expensive that those used by other suppliers? If they were, how would we know? Maybe the components Apple uses do cost more than the modems, flash storage, camera modules, etc. you'll find in competitors top-of-the-line products, but I kinda doubt it. I'm pretty sure Apple's massive purchasing power insures it gets very competitive pricing on third-party components. There doesn't seem to be a massive chasm in the hardware capabilities of an iPhone compared to a similarly-positioned product of another brand, so I'm not inclined to give Apple a free pass on build costs.but as I said, Apple is using very expensive components and tech.
That doesn't mean I don't think iPhones have value -- I do -- I just that I don't think component cost is a major contributor to rising iPhone prices.
Of course not, but that's irrelevant to the point I made. My point is about the assertion that Face ID makes new iPhones more expensive. We don't know that. If Face ID really does cost more than Touch ID, then it's a valid argument. If it actually costs the same as or less than Touch ID, the argument that its cost contributes to the rising price of iPhones is wrong.Right, neither of us know for sure but does he think FaceID is free?

Please if you can my dear user name me one other electronic product cable of the last 50 years that fails and fails within months. There is no other as this problem was solved decades ago. Only apple has this problem and it continues year after year. $40 per cable F u Apple
A couple years back my experiment MonoPrice and Amazon cables both fell apart fairly quickly tho -- the plug assemblies came apart. Never happened with any of my Apple cables.
so you claim I’m using the cable wrong.
I call bullshit.
I use the cable. Period.
No other cable has experienced this failure on any device in my near 5o years.
It has never occurred on anything ever but an Apple product and this has happened continually since my first iPhone v1.
So spare us defending the most valuable company on Earth who somehow can’t make a power cord that doesn’t fray.
[...] I am willing to wait to get something since I know the price will come down or there will be a deal around the corner.
I disagree that waiting is a viable solution to overcoming the high price of Apple products.
[...] Everyone has a higher moral standard for Apple. If this were Facebook or Google no one would give a shit.
