re: Report: iPhone Sales Fail Triggered “Fire Drill” at Apple
Who'd have thought that people wouldnt line up every single day to buy $1000 phones?

Apple will fix this by making new IOS software updates inoperable on older models/ turning “older” iPhones into bricks.

You can keep your old phone and keep your old software, but if you want to update you have to buy a new phone.
Apple already does this, but I can see them hunkering down and making it more intense

Apple is acting like it’s some big deal dealing with creativity? LOL

You priced your phone at $1000. No one wants to pay that for a phone. It’s not worth it.

Agreed I think the rollout to 5g will help them crush their 2020 sales. Their services department is showing tremendous growth as well.



While no doubt the collab with Intel, and the two 5G Vendors (Nokia and Erricson) will help them give a better product in their 10nm soc design, the market is screaming, "We don't want to pay 1k+ for ANY phone."

The 5G NR Physical network is in place at the System Level. For most Erricson and Nokia products it was a simple hardware swap out of an already existing chassis.

The problem currently is dropped "calls" or data sessions at the higher frequencies. Therefore, the 700Mhz spectrum will be introduced first to give carriers a marketable service.

The real movement will be once the upper frequencies are within 99-100% confidence of not having dropped calls. Were not there yet.

We literally park a truck in our parking lot every day bouncing Upper 5G frequencies to get this right. The "26Ghz" band is the true next gen push.

700Mhz now, 3.5Ghz (in conjunction with LAA and CBRS) lagging behind, 26Ghz to set the world free.

I'm still cruising with the 6 and it has worked great since the day I bought it. No plans to update anytime soon


Same here. I got mine in October 2014. Over 4 years old. Battery life isn't as good, it's somewhat sluggish, and yeah the camera isn't as good as the later models. But the phone works well enough for me and I'm not going to spend $800-$1000 for a new one any time soon

Until 3 weeks ago, I was rocking the Iphone4. My wife bought the family IphoneXs............

My 4 was great, she complained she could never reach me.
