Re: Q1 2016?
@SunitaT0 – Exactly IPhone 6 series was never a technological advancement. As you said it's just another device with a bigger screen. Most people never bothered to compare the specifications.

@Kelly22- I am sure they have some benefit by following this cycle. Apple wouldn't do anything without a befit.

Re: Q1 2016?
Apple always keeps their devices at a premium rate, and always looks at the top end of the market and not everyone fits there. Today users have many options to choose from.

@Kelly: Apple's practises are as weird as the pricing on their phones.

Re: Q1 2016?
This was bound to happen, as Apple really made a blunder by providing users with a bigger screen, since that is the trend now, users go for a bigger and better screen more than functionality because most aren't power users and most do not hulk-smash the phone on slight lag. The iPhone 6 to 6s wasn't that much of an advancement really.

Re: Q1 2016?
@nasimon Apple's financial quarters don't align with the traditional calendar year; its Q1 2016 ended 12/26/2015. It's confusing as every company's different (for instance, Microsoft is sharing its Q2 2016 earnings tomorrow).
