Hmmm they certainly are taking a few knocks , this after the UBer issue , when they found out that anybody with an iphone and uber app allowed uber to trace finger movements on their phones. BUT in another story google has suddenly invested in Go-Jek one of ubers main competitors , and i think think this move has more to do with cutting of all of apples branches if you will.
credits to the "intentional" slowing down of old iphones, APPLE is going to suffer badly. a large mob has sued the giant to a heap of charges. keep your fingers crossed. something big is going to be a part of your daily news.
That is why i switch to Android phone , One day Apple will be beaten by android.
As far as I know the demand for iPhone is growing day by day.
However my understanding is these forums are for discussing PCS machines, not competitor machines (although you can run Linux on them, of course).
