reminder: the four most powerful mobile CPUs in the world are made by and for apple's exclusive usage in their phones

if you want the world's most advanced mobile CPU you're stuck with The World's Most Advanced Mobile Operating System

reminder: other phones did the notch before the iphone and they were rightfully laughed at. then the iphone did it and it became widely popular

reminder: everybody knows that apple intentionally slows down their old phones to coincide with the release of the newer ones. they even admitted it: theverge.com/2017/12/28/168272

nothing happened, they didn't stop doing it, but they *did* offer a $29 battery replacement for affected phones c:

reminder: apple was the first important company with the courage to drop the headphone jack. now that they've done it, everyone is doing it, and this >200 year old standard is dying thanks to them

reminder: if you try to screenshot a movie purchased with itunes on a macOS or iOS device, it won't work. this is presumably to prevent you from taking 24 screenshots per second and stitching them back together into the full movie, because why else would you prevent people from doing this

@lynnesbian not to say it's not awful but this is just hdcp which is a "feature" present on every streaming service and OS combination (including linux), not really an Apple Specific thing.

@animeirl this isn't HDCP though, this is something built in to macOS/itunes

HDMI isn't involved

@animeirl oh so it is

still though it's apple's fault for intentionally deciding to build it in to itunes

@lynnesbian agreed, but tbf, if they didn't then there would almost certainly just be no itunes.
