Actually I’ll give you 2 random things for the price of 1 that most people (at least on Quora) don’t seem to know:
- Apple does not design their products to be difficult to fix so you’ll buy new ones instead. Apple designs their products to meet certain specifications and ideas the design group comes up with. They then modify the design so they can actually be built in-mass. Note they design the products so they can be assembled; whether they can be disassembled isn’t as important.
- Apple does not slow down older stuff so you’ll buy newer stuff. They actually had some older iPhones which slowed down to extend the useful life of the battery. In other words, under certain circumstances they slowed down the phone so you wouldn’t have to buy a new one — just the opposite of the claims!
