Not to mention the recycling program they've been operating for years.

Whilst the high cost of this phone is forefront in my mind, iPhone or Apple has restricted / disabled media sharing features like Bluetooth and Wi-Fi
IPhones as is even if sale prices made them essentially give away, NO

Apple providing 4+ years of updates goes a long way to help keep these devices for longer, and some focus on sustainability can be appreciated
Most Samsung fanboy-ism keeps on forgetting that Apple's main strength is software. Before the iPod/iPhone/iPad/iWearable revolution, services like Music App (Beats music/iTunes), etc. were bound to come to Apple without these devices.
Before the "iPortable" industry game-changer:
Final Cut Pro
Apple has been a industry-leader in innovation for decades unlike one-hit-wonders like Huawei, Xiaomi and BBK.

With so many phones being produced to bolster their already insanely huge bank balance, it's a fair possibility that quite a number end up there...
you have to commend Apple's ability to make a product (and ecosystem) people think they can't do without.
Fusion, 10 Jan 2020True. Unfortunately GSMA has become full of jealous Android fanboys obsessed with Apple. Funny... moreExactly every iPhone related article as at least 60 or more comments... Android users need to chill a bit.
dude111, 10 Jan 2020Bu but GSMarena users keep saying that apple is doomed!!!11True. Unfortunately GSMA has become full of jealous Android fanboys obsessed with Apple. Funny how every Apple article always has the most comments full of iHaters.
The single most popular piece of electronic from a singular company has to be the iPhone. I wouldn't be surprised if it has already surpassed Sony's Walkman in it's booming times. The best part is, it doesn't look like iPhone sales are going to end anytime soon. Apple will probably think of a way to clone human beings so they could sell more iPhones to them.
Not an Apple fan, but kudos to the Co.
Not all Cos. can achieve such sale figures with such limited choice of products. It's truly great. Congrats.
