I'm getting frustrated with Apple too. I have the iPhone 7+, I am on the annual upgrade plan so I basically upgrade every year. I did not realize how much I would miss the headphone jack. I can't charge my phone and use the headphones they give you with the phone. You would think that they would have included the new headphones/airpods with the New Phone!! Nope, cause they want us to pay $159 for them. I had the Note7 (my 2nd line) and loved it. It was a nice phone, aside from the explosion issues. Mine never got hot, even when charging. I hated to turn it in, but didn't want to take the risk as some others still are. It was a really nice phone.
I dislike the new MacBooks and macbook pros. I have a late 2013 macbook pro, love it. No plans to upgrade till it stops working. I also have the 11 macbook air, which is great, perfect for travel. I don't like the keyboards on the new MacBooks, or the lack of ports. I also like the magsafe connection. It has saved my laptops so many times. Hopefully they will go back to a better keyboard. Am i the only one who likes the glowing apple on the laptops???
I think its crazy the way they do the launch of new products, they are rarely available. For the iPhones, the plus sizes are always on back order. The stores here never have any, same with this latest macbook with touch bar. We have no Apple store, only best buy, and they did not have any, not even a display model until later.
Apple has always had the reputation of great products that last. That seems to be changing. I have a friend who still has the old MacBooks (white one), she still uses it and says it works for whatever she needs. She also has older iMacs that are still going strong.
I definitely don't want to go back to a PC, use that at work and hate it. I just want Apple to stop with the thinner is better, and short supply of products.
