    Man I am surprised at this because I thought Apple made quality products.

    They used to then Steve Jobs died and so did QC. There is a reason I switched form Apple when I replaced my 4S.

    Very true. I just thought the guy who replaced him would have the same QC mentality as Jobs did.

    Apple sold 10M phones... Doesn't mean that 10M people actually bought them. Some carriers are required to purchase a pre-set quantity of phones when they're released, as per their contract with Apple.. Those same carriers are required to sell a pre-set quantity of phones or face fines from Apple for breach of contract.

    Majority of the sales Apple reports at product launch, are from carriers.

    Eventually 10M people will get phones :) I will keep mine nicely sealed in the box until I get one of those nice Spigen tough armor cases. Or better if I ran into an Apple fan boy and sell it :banana:

    I hate to say it again, and surprisingly once more in combination with the iPhone, but:

    Wrong.
    Apple always gives real numbers of units sold to real end-users/customers.

    Competitors don't instead. They always tell numbers sold to distributors.

    Wow, even my not-geeky, less tech-afine co-workers already have known about that iPhone6 bending thing. I guess that such news really go around fast...

    Although i wont try this on my OnePlus One i doubt it would yield the same result as that of the iP6+.

    Oh dear, first it bends and the screen snaps, now ios is pulled. Damn it. What the the hell is going on at Apple? Mistakes start creeping in when either shortcuts are taken or employees lose faith and don't give a crap. Mmmm..which one I wonder!

    Its because there is no Mr Jobs guide the company & to pull them out of the sh1t anymore when this kind of stuff happens I predict a slow death for Apple.

    Bad Apples

    :bang:
    Yeah, I think you're right. The writing has been on the wall for ages now, people keep denying it but its definitely lost that Jobs spark. This slow death is painful to watch...did i say watch...apple watch...lol....man, that hasn't even hit the market yet. My prediction, that watch is gonna be another 5C debacle.

    I really don't know is worse:

    (a) diminishing their product range by releasing multiple products into the same range and watering down all other products to nothing, just like American 'beer'.
    (b) having fat f***s stand in front of a crowd and lie to them about the thinness of their iMac's.
    (c) actually paying real money for Beats.
    (d) all of the above - and smiling whilst they do it.

    I got my 4S, and I like it - but daaaammmmn, this phone is from another era of Apple altogether.
