I'm so sick and tired of Apple. They always try to rip people off. They always try to come across as the "innovator," but honestly, what have they done in the past 5 years that was so innovative? Each year, they're like "ugh. alright. time for us to make a new phone again," and they change the tiniest thing on their phone, and then slap on the word innovation on top of it to jack up the price. iPhone isn't even American; they manufacture their phones through legalized slavery in China. They also constantly try to find a way to make their customers buy their overpriced crap, and the saddest thing is, they know it'll work because of all the hype from their mindless sheep customers. I used to love Apple, but I'm so tired of their crap. Does anyone else feel the same way?

As long as those headphones or headsets for the new iPhone aren't entirely proprietary I can still see that people will buy alternatives and get the latest iPhone, otherwise sales may drop or something. Because if they're not flexible enough to allow people to buy "other brand" headphones that aren't overpriced and is compatible with iPhone 7, then their customers will more than likely reconsider making any purchases of their new smartphone.
The only thing that Apple can do that will absolutely have my attention is if they consider updating a new line of MacBook Pro laptops to have up-to-standard GPUs that will support Virtual Reality apps and Hardware such as Oculus Rift.
I would like them to eventually consider releasing a MacBook Pro with a really good nVidia GPU such as GTX 980 or Above which would be great for those that want to be able to use the latest and newer technologies such as Virtual Reality and even some of the most current games on the market, such as Steam, although most games on Steam are for Windows. BUT Mac is capable of having a Windows operating system installed as a secondary operating system, so I don't really see why they don't just consider it later at some point within the next 5 years or so. And yes, they'll probably still overprice their shit.
Imagine a new line and editions of Mac Pro laptops released that are Virtual Reality+Gaming Ready, it's probably going to be easily over $3000 at the minimum, possibly even around $4000 at the minimum.
But until then, I really don't have a real incentive since they don't offer anything that I really feel I need or want atm. It's great for those that work in Web Development and Graphic Design or at least those that major in them in college or something from what I've noticed. But I'm not in any of those majors or fields, so it's not something that would absolutely be suitable for me.
Even the Apple Watch doesn't really intrigue me all that much as there is no mobile broadband connection support atm.
Although I have considered getting an iPad Pro, but even that's something final.1

I never bought into the Apple craze. I'm a practical person and if I can find something that does what I want for less money, i go with that. I know how computers work and have fixed up my Asus notebook with a SD hd and a lot of RAM. Already has a good Ausus motherboard.
They make it damn near imposible to open up a Macbook.
Apple just markets to the koolaid drinkers and technologically challenged (aka people who don't want to learn about how their machines work and have a poor attitude about it). Aka people who would pay the price of their liver to send their gadget back to Apple for a repair.
The only Apple product I bought was a used 8gb iPod nano 8th generation for $80 back in 2008. Portable music player was where their niche was as far as I'm concerned. And as far as I'm concerned they haven't found a new niche.0
