    Exactly. That's why we are staying with apple as well. I do have to return my wife's apple watch. After pairing with her 6s, it does not want to co-operate with her new 8. I spent 2 plus hrs with apple on the phone, tried everything to get it to recognize notifications and just NOPE. So, They have a new one on the way and we will return no questions asked. Great service from Telus and apple.

    For one, I do not defend Apple etc. I think Apple computers are ****. For two, Apple phones, even if you have to return and get a new one are more reliable, faster, and more consistent than android phones. For three, apples integration with communication is better than android as well.

    Hey, I'm a power user like many of us. Love having full control of my devices. Having said that, I've stuck with Apple phones due to the ability to jailbreak them and mold them to my liking.

    My current phone is a 6 I bought in February of 2015 which still works fairly well. It does everything I need it to, some of which is no thanks to Apple.

    I give credit where it's due- though I'll never buy a Mac computer again, their phones fit the bill for me.

    Agreed. MBP w/ 8th Gen shouldn't be there in market.

    No, Apple just needs to move into the present and future of laptop and desktop computing. TOUCH! a 2 in 1 macbook pro with pencil support and touch and foldable imac (a la surface studio) and I would be a complete apple user. But their computers are in the past.

    But that would cannabalize their ipad pro.....keep dreaming ;)

    same reason why iphone SE never got a refresh, it ate too much into their iphone 6s and 7 sales since it was just as powerful but 250$-300% cheaper.

    I won't be dreaming, I am enjoying my 2 in 1 windows devices just nicely now. But I beg to differ on the ipad pro comment. It would hardly ever be utilized as an Ipad. but, Hey. Apple "knows best" right?

    Apple knows nothing. They're still riding the wave that Steve jobs built up in the mid 2000s
