this is just so they can raise the prices of repairs or spares and force you to buy a new phone instead.
but no worries, generally apple users upgrade annually coz having the old model is so last season.

Every company wishes they could have that influence with their fanbase. If Apple can do that with consumers, they are doing something right.

meh. i don't care anymore. i am a developper but stopped buying new phones annually because i am fed up with these marginal changes every year. also the battery of the iphone starts fucking up exactly after 9-12 months. right before the new model is on the horizon. i think they are building them deliberately that way. this is another reason i stopped buying annually. as a customer i feel i'm treated like a cashcow. i'm sure many others are thinking and acting like that.

I have zero doubt they are under-engineering their hardware so it fails faster.
Just look at the light globe.
One company totally over engineered the incandescent so it burned brighter and basically lasted for ever.
No other light bulb companies liked this so they bankrupted em, got together formed a monopoly and agreed to make poor quality bulbs that need to replaced more often.

Greed is an evil thing.

"Apple, Verizon, and the tech industry's largest trade organizations". Who are these other orgs? I have a feeling this may include pretty much every large company that makes smart phones.
