Apple have been doing this with displays and batteries for a while now and no one else has adopted that. So I think that theory is flawed. Also Samsung doesn't have NEARLY as many stores as Apple so it would cause them brand damage.

2. Samsung mock Apple for it, then will do it nex... moreUnfortunately that's actually a pretty realistic scenario, many Android-manufacters tends to mimic Apples moves way to often.
Now for instance there is a rumor Samsung just like Apple will stop providing chargers inside the box.
And I'm not liking it, being inspired by your competitors is a good thing, mimic every move they take however just ends up being said.
After this news, I believe Apple will release an update to prevent changing camera part for IPhone 12 Pro Series.
I think what is going on here is that Apple calibrates the cameras on the phone during assembly (notice how the different cameras output is well matched). Swapping camera modules obviously will break this calibration.
Or perhaps Apple is using different manufacturers for camera modules on the 12, but not on the 12pro. The modules would have the same specs, but require specific programming, so the phone has to know what it's got.

You get latest features 5 years late on an average. Android is light years ahead of iOS in terms of functionality, customizability, security and ease of use. Android from 5 years back can do things current iPhone can't.
iOS 14 finally got an app drawer and widgets, Lol these are things that existed on Android a decade back.
Plus with every subsequent update, your battery and cpu are deliberately slowed down by Apple (Yes, they are paying fines for this malpractice) whereby one is forced to upgrade after a few years.

Apple is not the only company doing everything they can to prevent repairs, but somehow radical Apple followers here don't realise who all the Android OEMs follow and copy in this regard.
It's really weird seeing those reactions :D.
Apple: No DIY cheap repairs for you!
Apple fan: Great move! I don't ever replace x y z anyway.

I like both iphone and android. As i said many times there is rarely a bad product but rather bad prucing and customer treatment.
Peopole who are financially capable and are realy in to the apple eco system from airbus to mac pro's have nothing against the other OEM'S and dont bother wasting their time on comment sections like this.but the ordinary peopole yet to start living independently and start a family or having a kid arguing on both sides about their preferred brand like there are the best the planet can offer.
I can afford all the new stuf, but i rather buy a p30 pro for 230,replace the brocken gack glas for 10 euros myself and put 500 € in to my kid's savings account.
I think that is something to be proud of, not bragging around being it to the eco system and using a device that every celebrities use😅
[deleted post]I can relate. Basically every iPhone user I know personally is like that. They don't understand tech, features or operating systems and buy into the hype.
[deleted post]You win the Internet brah!
Money... or call it "official" or "authorized"sources. Which means that your phone, the one you have purchased is no more your phone!!! As you can't repair it where you want. Only where Apple earn more money again from you, as "authorized" third parties also pay Apple for have that right... The excuse is the use of original overpriced parts, tools and the right knowledge. The reality is money, extra i$$$ for them or a broken/bricked phone. That is.

Generally, Apple is a greedy company & want to make extra cash ... like removing 3.5mm socket to sell their BT headphones. This makes sense. However, I am not convinced they did the camera thing to make extra cash. There must be another explaination.
