    Apple and other tech firms have been criticized for "planned obsolescence": Deliberately making products with short life spans so consumers quickly find them obsolete and resort to buying the latest model

    Just because they release a new model every year doesn't mean you have to buy it every year.
    So it's incorrect that their phones have a short life span.

    My pops been rocking the same iphone 5 for 4 years now without any issues

    My friend just upgraded from a 5 to a 7+ Aonly because it stopped charging. What's funny is that his 7+ does not work properly and he has to return it for a new one. I definitely don't need a new phone every year. After a certain point they pretty much do the same thing and now it's just extra features that make it a luxury.

    Why are you getting all emotional about it? this might hit to close to home for you :mjlol:

    People feeling like their self worth or status is higher because they bought the Brand new iPhone

    I honestly think they should drop every two years and get rid of the whole S line. No one cares about the S phones and the whole numbered phones is where they make the most changes both external and internal. Apple is definitely oversaturating there products when it comes to the tablet, iphone and the bullshyt I watch.

    Apple be dropping Iphones like gotdamn Call of duty.

    nah but iPhones become super dysfunctional after a couple years. they pretty much force you to stay updated at least every few years.

    this ain't 2008 bruh, in 2017, who the fukk is using an iphone as a status symbol? and even worse, who is looking at these ppl as having some kind of "status".

    iPhones ain't special like that.

    it's fine that they drop every year. most phone contracts are two years anyway. ppl's problem is that ppl can't NOT have the next thing for another year.


    the problem is the consumer, not the supplier.
