Haha for the money they charge this is shameful
Apple you lazy monopoly.
JF69, 01 Jun 2016What exactly is bad about the quality of the iPhone, this question comes from an android phone... moreThey're lagging behind on the functionality of the os, the camera, and the display. The design is also outdated and looks clunky. All they have to do is cut down in the bezels, advertise it as a more streamlined, sophisticated looking phone and the Apple users would eat it all up.
The main problem is marketing though. In reality they're not really doing anything better. They're able to extract disproportionate levels of profit despite not actually provide a better product due to brand imaging. And stagnating for 3 years as the competition just looks to be getting better will severely hinder that. In reality people don't care about smartphone branding as much as they did 5 years ago either.
Yeah everything looks like an iphone nowadays so it doesn't really matter.
I actually think once a year is fine.
Apple charge like a wounded bull on prices in Australia and laugh all the way to the banks when the specs many times don't hold up to others and there is nothing elite in such commonality as people say. HTC also have stellar builds. they should also be 1-2 year tops. he market is saturated with wanna bees every week. Enough already. We don't go through phones that fast.
Samsung, omg, crazy stuff every few weeks insane. same same
Samsung started this trend anyway, you cant even tell the difference between S series, A series, C series, J series, the front view that is. so its no big deal if apple follow them, you cant even tell the difference between S6 and S7
redesign?! every iPhones looks the same to me. (considering the claims that says HTC one looks like iPhone, galaxy s3 to s5 looked the same, every moto phone looks the same since original moto x)

The competitors come out with new more competitive designs almost every month, while Apple only come out with new more competitive design once every three years, that = Goodbye Apple, the next Nokia from number 1 to not existing!
The real problem is Apple's momentum is going down and they probably can't afford to let it keep dropping for a whole year extra. They won't be able to rely on branding as much and would need to give a better quality phone at this rate, or their sales and profits would permenantly decline.
HeartGold69, 01 Jun 2016Please don't believe anything until the iPhone is out + if you can't afford one please stop sa... morewhy would ypu say we cant afford them? lol i could buy like 10 of them, but tell me, why waste money on this while android has more features and there is a biger choice between phones?? your logic is fanboys logic.
This is what i don't understand about Apple.
If these so called internal enhancements are done within a year then why not launch the phone with enhanced or with the latest internals in the 1st place. What's the point of launching 6 then thinking "no, we could have done better than that so we would now launch 6S"!
I really don't see this as a major issues.
Apple has done the same thing with its MacBook, and major revamps haven't happened in years. People are happy with the design, and as performance increases it continues to satisfy people's needs.
Sushant Sic, 01 Jun 2016So their designers have no work atleast for two years?? Gives people more time to do R&D and test better designs, doesn't it?
All d middle class people cn afford an iPhone buddy n people little less on pocket cn surely buy a used last model of iPhone .. It's not as it was 3-4 years back , it's no more an exclusive product but just another product in the market which people CAN AFFORD to choose the rest is up to individual taste style n need if you want a Samsung Apple xiaomi Sony or whatever
"There's apparently little room for major enhancements right now."
So for the next iPhone instead of ADDING, they REMOVE a feature which is 3.5mm jack.. That's so Apple indeed
Apple will just sit down and relax while watching Samsung and others come up with new features or technology. Then they will make a move to redefine that features/ technology and claim it as innovation. People will then long queue to get that.
for me i think iphone redesign only happen when new number comes out.
Ex: 4,4s - Glass and Metal
6,6 Plus,6s, 6s Plus Larger Screen and One piece of Aluminum.
