Is it unethical to upgrade your iPhone?

Since this post was made, Apple has released seven new phones, your charger no longer works, and when you send a text it auto shames anyone using an older model so everyone knows you aren't as cool as "sent from iPhone X25.7" person.

Sent by samsung galaxy s10+ user, over two years in and more than that left ahead. Not buying the stupid flip or fold nonsense with the book like seam in the middle just because they fvcked up and made a borderline perfect device and now don't have any way to talk me into buying a new one :LOL:
The carrier will talk you into buying a new one by discontinuing support for 3G LTE/4G.

i use my phone alot. camera, jukebox, entertainment. def feel like i get my $1000 dollars worth after 2 years and havent really noticed the slowdown..just fills up quick with spotify and photos and videos.
That’s good. I’ve noticed that browsers are the first thing to slow down, even if using Wifi.

They'll be making free money convincing dummies to buy "5G capable" devices in places that don't even get actual 4G coverage for a couple more years

Worked in mobile app development for a long time. Was always an Android guy, but now, fck android. As much as I used to hate to admit it, Iphones are just better.
