Who is the “us” you refer to? Apple should have replaced the battery, bad on them, but I would not have thrown $$$ to a new phone so fast. However we are all different and now you’re blaming Apple, for your decision and why the car analogy. Admit the decision to upgrade was on you and Apple admittedly could have done better.
With 250 million customers of Apple I’m sure there are bound to differing opinions, especially in an online forum where at times hyperbole reigns supreme.
Nope sorry I'm not going to admit to something like that. We have totally different opinions. Maybe you need to understand the needs of professionals who don't have time to spend solving problems.
Let's agree to disagree but you should stop blaming customers. Your attitude is at least rude to customers talking to them as naives who shouldn't be talking about the almighty apple
