It is clear that the mainstay of Apple’s revenue is the iPhone as it is by far the largest source of profit for the most valued company today. Lately we have been seeing for several weeks in a row that numerous consumer service agencies and the like have sued the apple over the issue of programmed obsolescence on their not-so-recent terminals and now many people are wondering if this will ever happen on the newer iPhones, i.e. iPhone X and iPhone 8. It appears, according to Apple, that these smartphones will receive a hardware upgrade to address these issues.
I’m sure none of us would be happy to spend 1,000 or more euros on a terminal that we can’t use in 3 years’ time. Some may be upgrading with Apple’s renewal plan, but the vast majority will not. Cupertino’s company has been asked if this will also happen in terminals such as iPhone 8 and even iPhone X and Apple’s answer has been that iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus include hardware updates that will allow greater protection against this type of circumstance which will allow iOS to anticipate these problems.

In short, according to Apple we will not have such big problems of obsolescence in the terminals that were presented last year, the ones mentioned above, because they have a superior technology that we would see, for example, in an iPhone 6. The apple probably didn’t like the fact that its biggest source of income was in danger. At the moment nothing is clear as the Californian firm has not wanted to go into too much detail , the only thing that will tell us if Apple has complied is the time.
