  1. From what i have been able to gather… there are aprox 600 -700 million iPhone users out there

    If the above estimate is anywhere near acurate.. thats 250-to 300 million units for the coming cycle… or should we say SuperCycle

    🚀🚀🚀

    1. The estimate is not accurate. I believe there is a breaking point when an item becomes just too expensive, especially when on a subsidy it’s linked to a junk, overpriced plan.

      The jury is put on volume…

      1. As expensive as they are, and the fact that my phone will NEVER be my primary ‘computing’ source, my 6+from way back when is going strong and I’ve no intention of upgrading any time soon.

  2. People are sheep, and that’s how Apple stays in business. I remember the days when they actually made the best tools. Funny how it wasn’t until they descended into mediocrity that people responded.
