Second, Apple introduces two new iPhones, a clever and secure way to pay for stuff, sets up a website to help Android smartphone users switch, and then tells the world that Google thinks you’re a product, not a customer (but doesn’t actually say the word ‘Google’).
Then, to top it off, Apple-loving-but-Android-users both Andy Ihnatko and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak announce they’re preparing to dump their Android phones. Why? iPhone 6 and iOS 8 are that good.
Well, Apple, what took you so long? Fat fingered smartphone users the world over are rejoicing over iPhone 6 Plus and the larger than large Pop-Tart-like screen size that the masses of people with mass so desire.
Notice that both Ihnatko and Wozniak could be related, have similar physical attributes (facial hair, thick fingers, propensity for speaking their collective minds individually), one of which is the need for a larger screen, and another one of which is the need to tinker around with their devices.
Oh, not to mention how much Apple’s Health app and HealthKit can help both to prolong their lives by tracking their physical activities, caloric intake, stair climbing (yeah, right; like that happens), jogging, et al.
Apparently, neither Ihnatko nor Wozniak (try saying both names three times as fast as you can) are worried about Apple’s commitment to remain the premium brand. An iPhone 6 Plus with a measly 16GB of storage starts at $749. 128GB will run you $949, which is more than a MacBook Air running Skype (which still might fit into Inhnatko or Wozniak’s pocket).
