Guys, it’s like renting an iPhone, and you get a free upgrade as long as you pay the subscription fee. It’s like Verizon or AT&T, but it comes straight from Apple

Okay, but what about market dominance, what about smartphones?
to the nations of Western Europe? In the UK, Nokia was kings, now it’s Apple, Samsung, Huawei, etc., now smartphones aren’t given away and you have to buy a £ 20 recharge or with a very cheap contract you can still buy cheap smartphones , but the market is shrinking.
Nokia is now launching cheap 4G devices.
The market can be transformed.
Think about how people used to buy music now most people use a playback service fewer and fewer people buy physical CDs

sq2013, 10 hours agoThey are not the first global concern worth a trillion dollars for nothing. Unfortunately, c … moreThe first man that Apple never used the SD slot, so they could not remove something they never had.
For the sake of greed and even more, they went with their cloud storage too expensive and people paid because they were forced to.
It was about deleting your photos and videos or storing them in expensive cloud storage, which doesn’t work everywhere, especially in countries where there’s no internet signal or if you haven’t paid for the use of Internet, etc.
But to continue, my friend Apple was not the first with non-removable batteries, they only helped popularize this trend just like Notch, where Essential phones came back first, but since Apple started using Notch, they all jumped on that bandwagon.
But before there were several phones with non-removable batteries like the 2006 Vertu Constellation and in 2007 before Apple arrived with Iphone, two more Vertu phones come with non-removable batteries.
When it comes to any charger in the box, Apple helped popularize this trend, but they weren’t the first and they were the first.
According to the topic I submitted in 2017, some students invented a phone that had no battery inside, so it no longer has to be charged. But this was a phone made for research purposes and not for sale among the people.
The same can be said of the Meizu Zero, which was supposed to be the first 100% fully sealed phone, so no charger, no connector, nothing more, just a 100% sealed phone with no holes, not even for in the sim slot or memory slot.
But due to the failure to accumulate money, Meizu Zero never came out in the light of the world.
So again, Apple helped popularize this trend, but they weren’t the first to come up with this idea.
I found other topics on some phones from the 90’s without a charger, but also for research purposes and nothing else.
Then, for the next 25 years, no one would ever think of a phone without a charger.
Finally, about Jack is true. Since the first phones came with prey, some have had others not.
As time went on, more and more phones communicated with jack until Apple removed it completely and nowadays to sell bluetooth audio and wireles they don’t put it back on.
So yes, Apple customers are idiots who don’t care that their slave owner steals the required stuff like sealed batteries, SD cards, 3.5mm jack, and many other essentials that most phones still have. Android. And they will pay anyway because of the Apple logo.
In other words, as the apple sheep would say, I’d rather live with a broken leg or sell my kidney, but I’ll buy an Apple phone no matter what happens, even if I have to start a bank robbery.
Please bring all these as well as credit card / Apple Pay to India. We are the largest market and with your innovative offer you can increase your penetration.
[deleted post]Man, you’re not kidding, but I don’t care what you said to me.
No, it’s not just for social media, but it does raise a very valid point.
These days, we can “hang out” with groups of friends and not even be in the same room or city or even country. No wonder there is so much social anxiety these days, as people have become accustomed to not having to be physically next to someone to interact with them.
Darknoor, 16 hours agoYes, because we are always happy to own nothing, with big bodies dragging us forever.They are not bleeding. Here no one puts a gun to your head. No need to have an iPhone. There are many much cheaper phones. I pay 10.99 a month for a sim only offer. I bought my phone a Poco F3 for 280 euros. I will spend less than 2 years on my phone offer than a customer with a telecommunications contract will pay for an iPhone 13 pro max in 6 months. You can show off your vulgar greed all you want, but no one forces you to have an iPhone.
CptPower, 14 hours agoMan is or is not. I believe and time will prove that I am right. Apple will find its way as … moreThey are not the first global concern worth a trillion dollars for nothing. Unfortunately, consumers will pay for it. Apple has carved out this desirable brand name and the image that everyone wants to be a part of. People will forgive them for anything. The first company to remove an SD card slot in favor of its own charged cloud service, a charging standard only for Apple, the first company to introduce integrated sealed batteries, the first company to remove a charging brick from the list or packing the contents of the phone. It offers a one-year warranty on what is most often a 2-year contract device. The 3.5mm headphone jack has also been removed. They’ll do it and people will moan a little and buy their stuff anyway, so can you blame them? They are not greedy, but their customers are fools.
Almand, 13 hours agoYou may be right, but don’t stop living now just because you know death is inevitableMan don’t worry.
Because I am an infinite entity created a long time ago, but it is also a very long history.
But soon, after my life as a human being is over, my soul will find another body to be reborn with all the knowledge acquired from all previous lives.
So I am eternal.

I believe and time will prove that I am right.
Apple will find its way how to force its customers and they will have to pay whether they like it or not.
Because most of the rich companies in the world are also the most greedy and this greed will ruin them or find them in any way possible, no matter what the consequences will be after forcing you to pay whether you want to or not.
Greed is a sin, and sinners never get enough of it.
ZD, 20 hours agoYou can live in a cave whenever you wantMan, I don’t think people lived in caves 50-100 years ago.
But whatever you say.
Your logic makes no sense to me.
But feel free to spend your whole life on social media without living a real life outside.
Be the simulacrum they made you be.
So I can rent the phone to make a call … like a merc car … yes, we had phone booths … now we have cell phone booths … in Africa
Karo, March 25, 2022You will have nothing and you will be happy. Everything will be based on the subscription. Yes, because we are always happy to own nothing, with big bodies dragging us forever.
JLC, 23 hours agoBut you have to wash them before you go back 🙂Actually, this is not the worst. There are rumors that many car manufacturers are trying to include monthly subscriptions for car heating in your car. Of course, they can’t do it with old cars, but they can do it in a new one. Pay monthly, you have heating. your car, do not pay, they will block your heating remotely. At the moment, this is just a rumor, but hey ……
