It's only to justify that the price of it will rise even higher

So the iPhone 13 (or whatever it's gonna be named) isn't even out yet, and we already have rumours for the iPhone 14. This needs to stop.

I had a PowerBook G4 Ti - the frame was painted carbon fibre.
Titanium is roughly 30 times the price of aluminium, can you imagine how much will be in the alloy Apple uses?
Marketing gimmick, nothing more.
Huawei used a ceramic frame for the P40 Pro+, that's innovation not this.

IQOO 7 = 5+5+2+5+4+3 = 24

OnePlus Nord 2 = 4+1+5+4+5+4 = 23

Poco F3 GT = 4+3+3+3+4+5 = 22

Mi 11x = 2+4+4+5+3+2 = 20

Realme X7 Max = 3+2+3+3+4+5 = 20

Why would I downgrade to tiny 720p 60hz screen? My current phone is better than that.

"this way "forcing" the status focused users to upgrade" The heck is that supposed to even mean? A status focused person wants the newest tech regardless. And a new phone launch doesn't mean you paid less for your phone than you did.

They have less than 5 models to focus on in the smartphone world.
Despite their trillions, they still can't get things right.

Apple should make their phone with uranium

  • Omg

[deleted post]Of course. Envy is a sin..but i suspect that others will start to copy and use titanium also

Lighter iPhone Pro models would make me switch from Android to Apple phones.
