Of course no one knows how this really works but will still bloviate as though they know exactly what’s going on and what Apple’s movtives were. And of course it’s always to screw people over and provide a horrible customer experience because apparently in the eyes of some, Apple customers like crappy experiences and that keeps them coming back to buy more Apple products. I have yet to see anyone explain though how a poor customer experience keeps customer retention high. Which leads me to believe these people think Apple customers are stupid or lemmings or iSheep. There’s no other way to explain it.
