So like most people, I was pretty disappointed with the latest Apple announcements. I like Apple products, but I’m not a fanboy by far. I have Windows, and Linux machines, and even a Chromebook. I use and like everything. There are tons of things that I hate about Apple. In fact it’s been a long time since there has been a good Apple announcement. Every announcement these days seems to add limitations to their products. They just aren’t the same company without Steve Jobs.
I’ve been an iPhone user since 2010 when the iPhone 4 finally came to Verizon. Back then the iPhone was clearly the best phone. Blackberrys sucked, and Android was in it’s infancy. Now Android has totally caught up and in many ways is better than iOS. So I went from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 5 and now I have an iPhone 6. Every two years I’ve been getting a new iPhone. Every two years there have been enough improvements that I want the upgrade. I don’t think the technology is moving that fast anymore. All my previous upgrade my phone was feeling pretty sluggish when I was due for an upgrade. My iPhone 6 seems fine though. Plus, honestly I consider the iPhone 7 a downgrade. For some dumb reason they no longer have a 64 GB iPhone anymore. It’s either 32 GB or 128 GB. I don’t really need 128, but I would like more than 32. So an upgrade for me would be a loss of 32 GBs and a headphone jack. No thank you.
Yeah, I’ll be keeping my iPhone 6 for a while, and maybe switching to Android if Apple quits making suitable phones. Just like their computers and laptops, Apple is seeming to make them worse and worse and only pleasing the fanboys that buy them just because they have the Apple logo on them.
