How Apple iPhones Might End Up Like BlackBerry If They Don’t Change 1

Apple iPhones are officially going to end up like blackberry soon. If you follow this blog, a couple of weeks ago I made a post about Apple losing about $57b , if you missed that post you can find it here – Apple Loses $57b .

This week I’m going to be closely analysing how Apple’s iPhone downfall is just starting and how they might end up like BlackBerry if they don’t start being innovative.

Apple enjoys the position it has currently based on the fact that in 2006 when the first iPhone was launched there wasn’t any strong competitor and also due to the fact they have total control over their operating system something Google plans to have with the release of Fuschia OS.

Apple iPhones Coming With Recycled Features

Starting from the iPhone 7 to the the current iPhone XS Max , Apple has not added anything substantial to their devices apart from removing the headphone jack and adding a notch. All Apple does is change the processor and flip the cameras. Take a look at the image below and see if you can actually guess the phones in the image –

Then take a look at this second image with the names of the phones below them.

Also like every year a couple of leaks about how Apple’s new phone – The iPhone XI would look have also surfaced and here are the most popular ones so far

Still in the flipping camera business eh?

It’s one thing to recycle designs and features and a totally different thing to make them exorbitant. Make a quick Google search to compare the cost of upgrading from an iPhone X to an iPhone XS Max considering the only difference is that the devices.

Apple iPhones Are No Longer For Consumers

Apple has stopped developing phones for the users, all they are after is the money. Even Tim Cook confessed at some point last year that they were slowing older iPhones down. They want to force iOS users to upgrade so they can make more money.

I get the fact that every brand is out to make money but don’t force your users to do something they don’t want to and still extort them on top.

Why do users have to buy the fast charging cable differently, buy the Airpods differently and also buy the wireless charger differently?

By the time you calculate how much users have to spend to get the most out of their device , you can use it to get a very good laptop, a brand new Android Phone and a smart watch coupled with a wireless headset.

I’ll be honest, Apple truly has added a lot in the world of mobile technology as we know it but they are really running out of ideas and if they refuse to start innovating they will lose out. Blackberry felt nobody could oust them from the mobile scene and we all know where that got them. Nokia too.

Take a look at this chart showing the market share of the top smartphone brands in the world

How Apple iPhones Might End Up Like BlackBerry If They Don’t Change 6

If you look closely , you can see how Apple shipments dropped in the second quarter of 2018.

You can’t even say Apple has the best camera in the world right now. The Google Pixel 3 and Huawei Mate 20 Pro has even pushed it further down the chart. I know some people might say that the pricing is because Apple is a Premium company so they have to make premium products. Vertu was a premium brand too before they went off the grid completely.

It’s obvious everything is moving too fast and Apple can’t seem to keep up anymore . Also due to their current problem with Qualcomm , Apple is even looking to partner with Mediatek to be able to add 5G to their devices

With devices like the Xiaomi Redmi Note 7 coming with mind blowing specifications for just $150 (N60,000) and flagship devices from Huawei , Oppo and Vivo coming at a lesser price than the Apple devices, Apple should definitely sit up or they’ll lose out on the mobile sector they have dominated for so long.

I know a couple of people might say I’m an Android Fan that’s why I’m saying all of this but trust me I have nothing against Apple. This post was even written from an Apple Macbook.

All I’m trying to say is Apple should make the upgrade worth the price, if they can’t they can chose to release phones once in two years , at least none of us would complain about their camera flipping antics.

I know many Nigerian iPhone users probably won’t mind if Apple keeps extorting them because most of them only buy it to convince themselves they have some sort of class. Some of them don’t even know what Airdrop does or that they can text another iPhone user on iMessage and some others play music via Xender and Opera Mini.

Apple should do what’s expected as soon as possible or win a ticket to oblivion
