I don't play Pokemon Go so I can't say. I know it drains battery life quickly but is it that drastic?

I'm joking, but it does drain your batteries pretty quick.

iPhone 6 was Apple's ugliest iPhone to date. The 7 looks to continue that trend. At least we have cases.

It really is.

I'm so frustrated with Apple right now: iPad Pro is not nearly compelling enough because it's severely hamstrung by iOS (no, I don't think iOS works for "Pro" applications and use cases), it took them two years to get their watch software to how it should have been from day 1, we haven't seen any meaningful mac hardware updates (sans the MacBook), Apple Music's UX has been nothing short of horrendous, Apple TV is not compelling, and the list goes on.

I can't think of anything they've done lately where my reaction is of admiration. They haven't nailed anything.

Fucking sucks.

No wonder their stock is in the shitter.

I'm fine with the iPad Pro other then pricing of it and the Pencil's hardware. Both should be lower IMO.

Kind of pissed off that I went for the upgrade plan if this is true.

In the long run they will be fine as long as they get back on the tick tock schedule after the 2017 phone hits.

The backlash over the removal of the headphone jack will be far greater then anything related to them using the same overall design again.

why is everyone pissed at apple dropping the headphone jack whereas other mobile manufactures are doing the same? apple are attracting most of this venomous bile over an antiquated technology that should have been junked aeons ago.

Ahhh, dropped my iPhone today and it's kaput. Won't even power on. I have a Genius Bar appointment Saturday but am not holding my breath. 

 

Probably just going to buy an SE, which I've been intrigued by anyway. Such an awkward time to buy a new phone though, with the 7 on the way.

Happened to my iPhone 6 the last week.  Lucky I had my iPhone 4 as a back up.  Next, in line would be my StarTac (still powers up).  I can wait it out.

StarTac is the greatest cell phone of all time. As long as you have a supply of extra antennas.

I think he doesn't really know what antiquated means
