Re: new changes for the future.
 

"Current apple users get any product that comes from Apple.  I want to know whether such changes will reflect in getting more people to become new Apple users."

@Pedro: This seems to be a change that's being brought about on the hardware side where the underlying technology will change but the end-product would most probably be the same. I don't see many iPhone users who'd really care about this change. In any case the Apple fanboys will by Apple regardless of whether Apple is getting the hardware from its competition.

Re: new changes for the future.
Samsung arguably makes the best screens for phones. No wonder Apple wants a piece of this cake too. I think this would make Apple be appreciated more. I really want a brights 500 nits plus brightness iPhone.

Re: new changes for the future.
@Pedro: if you compare the iPhone 5s with the 6 you would see a major design and hardware change. You can argue that Apple doesn't need a powerful hardware set for its OS efficient. Apple realized that people are getting more and more hardware literate and are frowning hard if they are comparing it to their flagship androids and seeing that it is lagging. So people would continue to buy Apple because they would keep making advancements. The 6S introduced the pressure sensitive menu system. Maybe in 7 or 7s they would make use of the iris scanner like the Lumia 950.

@Nasimson: I too like this idea. But I don't think we will be seeing this feature anytime soon. Not until atleast 2017 or so.

Re: new changes for the future.
@Melgross: Android is popular because it is hardware scalable and as a result of that it is price scalable as well. And money has to be a major factor because Apple products are considered rare and a luxury because of their recurring higher than market price tags.

Re: new changes for the future.
Every year, there are a few people who question whether Apple's sales will go up, or down. What will happen in 2016, and what will happen in 2017? We really don't know. But pundits who have predicted a downturn in Apple's smartphone sales have been consistently wrong. So while over 90% of iPhone owners buy another iPhone next time, only 76% of Android owners do. Where are most of those going? Most of those from the iPhone are going to Android, and most of those from Android are going to the iPhone. And it's therefor obvious that not all Apple users buy any Apple product. That's why we do see a small amount of movement away. But it seems as though those who don't use Apple products, and therefor know little about them, don't understand the appeal, though they prefer to assign that to silly reasons.

Re: new changes for the future.
@Pedro: Replacing the 30 year old technology of audio jack with a single cable would be really cool. Although I personally like the audio jack because it's the only cable I need to carry to hear from my laptop, tablet or phone. So a curved iPhone with a single cable, I am sold. I'm sure there are millions out there too.

new changes for the future.
Apple will be making some major changes to their iphones in the future.  Will new users be enticed to get new iphones due to these future changes?  Current apple users get any product that comes from Apple.  I want to know whether such changes will reflect in getting more people to become new Apple users.
