If yes, how much does Apple lose because of the jb? Any estimated number out there?
I'm sure they lose some but who cares?
4.2million a month.
Really, how do we estimate that? It's practically impossible to come close.
And they'd lose some, but not enough to really cry over it. Cracked apps, for example.
Not because of the jailbreaking directly, but potentially Apple would lose 30% every time someone uses a JB app instead of a paid Store app.
They do not lose on jailbroken apps since those apps are not offered in the Apps store.
They lose potential revenue if the jailbreaker opts to down load cracked apps.
Jailbreaking doesn't cost apple anything. It is how the end user uses the jailbreak that could potentially cost apple.
But as Jessica says "who cares", I surely don't
Yeah, this is what I had in mind.
Any articles on this yet?
If they are, my heart is breaking for them.
I thinks it not lose.
Not at all; Apple still gets paid no matter what JB people do to their iPhones. AT&T's losses are probably more the issue...
You think wrong.
I suggest that you re-read what I said, specifically the "instead of a paid app" part. Sure, Apple won't lose anything if the jailbreaker would never have bought the app, but when they JB instead of paying then yes, Apple loses money.
No because when you jailbreak and people forget to restore/Genius finds out, your warranty is void which means you have to shell out money to buy another one.
apple loses NOTHING from the process of jailbreaking..and im sure they actually gain customers because of jailbreaking..Installous may lose apple money but i really dont think so..because thoes people who downloaded the cracked app most likely wouldnt have paid for it in the first place
The amount is probably small. They only take 30% of app revenue.
I understand what you said but there are paid apps such as irealsms and many others that are only available if one jailbreaks but not available in the apps store.
Some have similar functions as ones in the apps store. So there may be additional revenue loss there as well.
Not true.... I brought a JB 3g in for dust under the screen that was still JB..... it took some time and some angry words from me but I walked out with a new 3g.
Jailbreaking a device that they bought from Apple to run software that Apple doesn't allow and wouldn't make money on anyway... Where in this scenario = money lost by Apple?
Well, since they have to buy the iPhone FROM APPLE to do the jailbreaking, I'm going to say, no, they don't lose any income.
I'll go so far as to say they MAKE MORE because of it, as people get to have more choice.
Well, you got lucky. Apple has no obligation to service your phone.
Normal Jailbreaking...no one loses a dime.
The only place they (and developers) lose money is when someone gets a pirated App Store app via jailbreaking.
the app store is safe in apple's hands, its just cydia's video recording that made many of my friends refrain from getting the 3GS, just like me. We have the idea that " why, my iphone has 'video recording too' .. i don't need the 3gs..
that's how apple may lose their revenue IMO
I would think jailbreaking helps Apple. Most JB apps are ones that are rejected by apple, and there's a lot of folks out there who jailbreak only to unlock their phones for use with other carriers. This is where Apple really makes out - more hardware sales!
ATT is the only one to seriously lose out as other SIM cards will work in an unlocked iphone keeping iphone users on non ATT contracts longer.
