Phones 4U liquidation may bend Apple’s pricing rules

Phones 4U liquidation may bend Apple’s pricing rules

It would appear that Apple's regular relatively strict controls on pricing for iPhones and iPads will have little to no baring on the liquidation of Phone 4U. This mobile device company was kicked to the curb earlier this year - right before the release of the iPhone 6. In fact the company saw some extra controversy when it was discovered that Phone 4U wouldn't be issuing refunds on iPhone 6 pre-orders. Now we'll go ahead and assume that the owners of Phones 4U either don't expect to work with Apple ever again OR that Apple's rules for sales don't apply to a situation like this.

Is Apple finally giving us the variety we want?

Is Apple finally giving us the variety we want?

One of the main complaints about Apple’s mobile ambitions over the years has been a lack of variety. For quite some time, we’ve had our shot at one submission in each category. A single phone, a solo tablet, and not enough variety to keep many users engaged. That’s been changing, and if rumors are true, will continue to. Is Apple finally getting the hint? If they are, let’s hope they’ve learned from past mistakes.

iPhone 5c 8GB and iPad 2 replacement: why moving sideways works

For the iPad, they’ve gotten rid of the iPad 2 (the last model available with a 30-pin connector), replacing it with the iPad 4 (aka iPad with Retina Display and Lightning connector).
