(Reuters) - Apple Inc will host an event on Sept. 10 at the Steve Jobs Theater in the company's Cupertino, California campus, where it is widely expected to unveil new iPhone models.

 

In an invite to the event on Thursday, Apple teased a five-colored version of its logo, implying launch of more colors for its new iPhone models.

 

The company has been in the storm's eye, with trade tensions affecting its manufacturing link to China.

Sales of iPhone dropped to less than half of the company's total revenue in its latest quarter for the first time in seven years.

Why would people pay so much for a phone that's designed to last less than 2 years before breaking down which is why you see so many second hand ones for sale as well as those who just have to have the latest to show their friends .

My iPhone 5 finally gave up in January this year and I sold my iPhone 7 Plus and upgraded to the XS Max on release. With Apple care I have a 2 year warranty which replaces my handset free of charge so I’m not sure where you’re ‘less than 2 years’ comes from

That is not exactly correct. The iphones last so long people get tired of them. Second hand ones fetch a good price as well. And yes the showing off is correct. It is a throw away society and now they have credit cards to boot.

They pay for them because they work.... People may have a preference for a Samsung Galaxy S10 at THB35,000 and they reason they'll pay for that is because it does exactly what is says it will do and do it very well, with a great camera and reliability. 

 

Some prefer Apple some prefer Samsung because they are the best at what they do. Its the same with cars, people will pay for an Audi, Mercedes or BMW because they are the best at what they do (there are of course, better faster etc, but I'm referring to every day objects we use so a Porsche is beyond this discussion). 

 

People who can't afford an Audi or Mercedes always say they are not that good... who needs to spend so much to get from A-B? its just showing off etc... Who needs to spend so much to read facebook, send a WhatsApp or make a call, its just showing off etc...  You guys just sound jealous because you don't have enough expendable income to enjoy something which works seamlessly, you will try so hard to find the handful of examples where things were not perfect and use that to criticize the whole - You will find that your responses are wholly unbalanced and highly bias, you will seek out, agree with and even 'press like' on likeminded comments which make the same bias and unfounded criticisms you do... such as 'put an Apple logo on a dog turd and an Apple fan would buy it'.. Well, I'd counter that with, if you earned enough not to worry too much you'd chose something which is trouble free such as an Apple or Samsung. 

 

I've tried the HTC and Samsung, I didn't like the Operating system and preferred IOS, I was more used to IOS...  I may well try Xiaomi Mi 9 - but that is THB 16,999 so hardly the cheap option - but its an iPhone competitor - I wonder if its as reliable..... 

 

 

 

Simply not true, Apple is often inferior to many other phones yet comes a t a premium price.  Same with their computers, you can nearly always get a much better spec PC than an apple of an equivalent price.

i am an Apple fan boy when it comes to phones, but i also dislike Apple at times when they release a new phone and it looks identical to the previous version, does nothing new besides a may be few extra pixels on the camera and thats about it.

 

What frustrates me after Steve's passing is that Apple innovates every 3-5 years instead of yearly like competition and this is why Apple slowly loosing its market share.

 

Apple products in my opinion are excellent and work very well, but lack of innovation and imagination is what bothering me

 

I have the XR, why would i upgrade to the new one next month when it looks the same, feels the same but has slightly better camera, so does it warrant spending 30 000 baht just to get slightly better pics?i think not.
