Re: Apple phone prices have rocketed!

Why then is the 6s still the old price?
Because they can shove up the price of the new phone whilst people are distracted by the shiney from the price hike?
Was going to buy a new phone for the wife - for a change she'd get the new one, and I'd skip the upgrade as my 6 is fine. So thought it would be nice to get it when it was released. Then saw the price and thought bollocks to the price gouging bastards. Wife's not that interested anyway, so just not bothering.
The reality is the 7 is a lightweight incremental update with a massive issue -- no headphone socket -- and nothing that's "must have" to counteract this. Waterproof's nice, but meh, haven't managed to dunk any previous phones in the last 25 years, so it's not that important. Not having a headphone socket is a massive pain as we've several expensive wired headphones (so definitely not Beats) and proper call-centre headsets -- a £10 tax to Apple on top of the £120 is just taking the piss.
But this nicely sums up Apple. Their market's now millenials and hipsters with fashionable tat passing off as innovative tech. That 'watch' says it all where the strap's worth more than the bit in the middle.
