All of their phones are overpriced fucking garbage and always have been. The products that aren’t phones can still be considered as useful as literal e waste and only exist so petit bourgeoisie can float about their Shri no one cares about in public like the rats they’re, no one gives a shit about AirPods watches fucking whatever they hell they call computer stands in the slightest and they improve nothing about electronic hardware. All of their products wear out in a year at best and god forbid you don’t have protection for any smartphone/Mac you have for those things because they will break instantaneously(reminder these rats will prohibit you from being allowed to fix your phone from private repairmen) and all of apples products might as well require you to file out your entire life’s story worth of info to use or download because that company couldn’t give less of a shit about how much info they collect on their customers and exist as a vassale of the American government. I wish it was just apple that was a noninnovative vapourware tech corporation but unfortunately the entire western big tech industry thrives on hype and stolen ideas and hasn’t pumped out anything innovative in over 60 years except for the might as well be dead corporations that are IBM and Intel that only make me moderately dislike capitalism less because they actually have humanity something that wasn’t complete and total utter fucking nonsense

All of that is true, but there are other things to care about as well. For non-technical persons that won't root their phones and install custom ROMs, iPhones are still better than Google's Android spyware. And balkanization of surveillance is always good.

counterpoint: iPhone SE

less than $400 outside of the US (and just $300 in the US) for a decent phone that will receive iOS updates for 5-6 years compared to 2-3 years for flagship androids

I used my previous 5s-based SE from 2016 to 2020 and then got a new one 8-based one that I expect to use for 2-3 years more

my old SE still works, I donated it to my student friend and he can install the latest iOS 15

Everybody does this. At best usually just a side affect of bloat.

or you could find a cheaper android that has full lineageos support

yeah, but it's a small additional cost to pay for the iOS app ecosystem and a decent camera (don't judge me, I take photos of street cats frequently)

>>12336
they degraded it automatically when the device's battery was getting older, but then added a switch for that after an outcry – just put a new battery and it's ok again

I still use iPad Air 1 that I bought in 2013: it's a bit sluggish but works for using iBooks and browsing leftypol

They are a fashion and lifestyle company for people with the best ideas, best politics, best fashion sense, best social life, and great income to afford all these things.

Apple products aren't for bums and broke third worlders, but they are definitely something for those kind of people to one day aspire to.

Who else can make a nice laptop that actually has a nice haptic trackpad, good speakers, and a nice screen and giant battery??

iPhones are expensive but they'll last you a long time and give you a massive return on day-to-day convenience
can't think of a single Android on that level of quality

Check out the Framework laptop, that's a company that was recently created by former apple engineers.

framework laptops look cool, but they're unjustifiablly expensive and i'm skeptic that the company will remain afloat long enough for the modular gimmick to really pay off in the long run.

plus, fat chance they have a haptic trackpad that can compete. i hate my work-issued MBP that regularly flashes a bright light from the shitty touchbar directly into my retinas every so often in what i can only deem are targeted attempts at killing me through seizures, but the trackpad is really good and has basically 0 competition in the laptop market. most people can't even tell the clicks on the trackpad are haptic responses

i recently gave my dad my old oneplus 5t as a replacement phone for a galaxy with a dead screen, it's almost 5 years old and is still going strong.

With the new Apple Studio needing to be connected to another Mac to initialize a new SSD module, I am perplexed by one thing. How come IBM got rightfully wrecked doing its blatant vendor lock-in with the PS/2 yet Apple never gets burned for its bullshit?

It's $1300 for a quad core lmao actually seemed on the cheap side for a thin ultra book. I'd have to see a side by side with a Lenovo X1
