Fun part is that it can do more than current iOS.

Also no, they aren't "happy" because bunch of apps doesn't work anymore on it even if it's generally supported by most. Or shall I say they simply don't show up when you search for the app like it doesn't even exist anymore. Stop defending lazy BS vendors ffs.

-Trix-, 19 Jun 2021” Yeah, for those people who change their phones once per 5... more"if you want to upgrade yearly iPhone is best choice because of the resell price staying so high. Just like you said second hand 11 Pro Max is really expensive. You don’t need to pay much to buy new model every year if you sell the old one"

>>>Disagree with your statement.
If one upgrades yearly like me, iPhone is the worst choice.
Sure it's resale value is high but the buying cost is high too, negating any benefits of higher resale value.

Had the Galaxy Note 9. Bought it for Rs.68k.
Decided to buy IPhone 11 pro max after listening to glowing reviews.
Cost me around Rs.117k .
Kept the Galaxy Note 9 around as a spare phone.

Soon got tired of the hardware and software shortcomings on iOS.
Kept missing Android and kept going back to my Galaxy Note for certain things.
Upgraded myself to the OnePlus 8 pro.
Cost me around Rs.60k (half the value of the iPhone).
Sold my iPhone 11 pro Max at Rs. 55k (resale value for iPhone being good in my country) and added another 5k to buy 12gb/256gb model of OP8 pro.

[Effective cost of using the IPhone 11 pro max for around 9 months = Rs.62k]

Later Sold my Galaxy Note 9 for around Rs.30k.

[Effective cost of using the Galaxy Note 9 for around 21 months = Rs.38k]

Now upgrade to Mi 11 Ultra (12gb/256gb) version for Rs.70k.
Sold my OnePlus 8 pro for around Rs.35k.
Brand new OP8 pro is still priced Rs.60k for 12gb/256gb variant. No drop in its pricing.

[Effective cost of using OnePlus 8 pro for around a year = Rs.25k]

The effective price of using the iPhones for a year is almost twice that of Android flagships. If I had bought the iPhone 12 pro Max after selling the iPhone 11 pro Max, it would have still cost me Rs.75k more after selling the 11 pro Max

Even Android 6.0 users are happily using their devices without any issues in year 2021.
You were already shhut down in other comment section by showing link of real world testing of Android Marshmallow based device running flawlessly with Snapdragon 625 and 3gb RAM. Stop repeating the same non existent problems on Android in the every article.

This PIP feature seemlessly integrates with youtube to provide 'eyetube technology' straight to iphone user. One of the most advanced feature being rolled out to enable multi task while watching youtube in small formfactor !
PS: Dont worry Android users, we Appleians are few years late but we get excited more.

a 3 year old feature just arrived to ios.congrats

The user experience will definitely be much smoother than Android

Anonymous, 19 Jun 2021You could probably invest a weekend & put a custom ROM ... moreCustom roms are often not very stable… and I am not talking about myself… because I change my phone every 6 months. I am just trying to put forward this scam that manufactures put through customers to force them to buy a new phone to stay software relevant.

Apple giving latest features 10 years late is called pathetic support. Apple removing charger from box and not allowing more than 20W on flagship or no standard type C is what you call garbage business practices.

It’s worth noting that on Android, YouTube Premium is not required for PiP. 

Stop lying lol, it's not even available in the Philippines unless you're upgraded to Premium. Please update your article haha

Ytre, 19 Jun 2021PIP on Android only works in USANope, working in Belgium with Premium account

  • Woohoo

Idk what some guys are saying but PiP works on Nokia in India, maybe try revoking, then granting the permission again for PiP
