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: https://www.theverge.com/2017/12/28/16827248/apple-iphone-battery-replacement-price-slow-down-apology
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
reminder: it's against the EULA to install macOS on "non-Apple branded hardware". this means that if you want to test your mac app on a mac, you have no choice but to buy a new laptop or computer
reminder: apple surpassed $1,000,000,000,000 in value about half a year ago. that's one trillion dollars.
reminder: fuck apple
what a controversial take, i know
i'll always have my apple meme folder to fall back on
@lynnesbian i said it wouldn't surprise me but. what the wtf the fuck
@00dani they justified it with some bs about older phones' batteries going crappy so to extend battery life they underclock the phones.
if that was a real concern they could have just popped up a notice saying "your battery is dying, you can improve battery life by replacing it, have a nice day" but this is apple we're talking about
i mean honestly if it was an opt-in toggle switch i would personally use it but just forcing it on users is literally BS
