Probably because people realized spending over $1000 on a phone is a bit ridiculous 🤔

Apple, get your shit together.

    Less of a pricing issue than better durability of old phones. Earlier iPhones used to shatter screen and shit its pants when it comes to performance all the time after 18-20months of use. iPhone 7 onwards their screen is very durable, performance isn’t significantly worse and after batterygate many are replacing battery and getting better performance without replacing their phone. So people have not bought newer phones as frequently as otherwise they would.

      Not at all. A lot of googlers prefer iPhone to pixel, as do I. I’m not sayin Pixel is inexpensive but they are more reasonably priced than iPhone. I just think Apple needs to revisit their pricing structure.

    I don’t think there’s a discount. They are just advertising the give back program that has always existed.

    Half my family is still using their 3 year old iPhone 7s because there's very little reason to upgrade. They don't care about the camera improvements and don't want larger phones.
