    ... and charge an initial £1500 for it, with a £500 a year upgrade fee if you wish to upgrade to the new phone, would you buy it?

    It would have premium materials, with a pure sapphire glass screen and top spec camera. The processor would deliberately be kept one generation ahead of the non-edition phone and it would come with a wireless charging pad by default. It would also include 50GB of iCloud storage and fast track support on the phone and in-store.

    I bet there'd be a niche market for that. Personally I wouldn't, but then I wasn't interested in the Watch Edition and am on the fence about the iPhone Ecks (pr. "X")

    Would there be a camera bump you can see from space?

    Would there be a notch in the screen?

    If so, no. I would not buy it.

    Not everyone buys a device based just on specs and features.

    Why do people are about having a phone “one generation ahead” of standard phones?

    So they can live in an immediately outdated version of the "future"

    There’s nothing stopping Apple from adding more RAM and introducing a larger battery (with a bit more thickness). They could then use an A11X-esque CPU that is overclocked. They do deliberately hold back features, although I don’t doubt that they always give the best possible battery life with each design
