            you have to suffer, 08 Sep 2022what if users dont want to?Apple hates giving people a choice.

              iOS is an un-customizable locked down walled garden. There is nothing they can do to make me buy an iPhone without opening up the OS for customization and 3rd-party apps a lot. Much love to all the people who still enjoy iOS though. I know plenty of them.

                      Given apple's top priority for security in iphones, it's okay if they don't adopt rcs. I use Android, but appreciate apple's efforts to safeguard their os. Also, if iMessage is better than SMS then why would they integrate RCS into ios

                        Full screen iPhone would make buy one but as long as they make them uglier every year I'm not gonna care that "it's more powerful than any android", my 2 and 3 year old flagship phones never lag, so I have no need for more raw power.

                            I have seen confirmation that Tim Cook is really very small! I couldn't believe just how small he is!!

                              In other words, Tim Cook prefers closed-source platforms to open ones. How unsurprising.

                                Apple knows that iMessage is a competitive advantage and Tim's expressing that. I also view this as confirmation that Apple doesn't play well with others. The walled garden is only looking to get bigger, not break down its walls. I'd rather not be a part of it.
