When users notice something that is not good or unexpected in a product and starts complaining and shouting on social media, there is certainly a fire under the ashes, and ignore such complaints and if they seem unimportant to you, it can put you in the field of guns Looking for justification and excuses, this in itself a weak position is not required at all.
Appealing to the revolutionary iPhone X launched in September 2017, Apple refused to conclude the same year with an issue that sparked a huge controversy over the battery of the iPhone 6, 7 and SE, after users noticed a strange slowdown in their devices, and reduced Processors work in half.
Intense controversy and fog filled the horizons on social networking sites, and technical sites specialized, Apple accused that it reduced the capacity of the batteries of the above versions in favor of its revolutionary product recently launched from iPhone X, to pay users to pay to buy them to make profits, and Apple at this point probably right by a large proportion; This particular phone has held all or most of its hopes for profits that no one will be able to approach in the near future, and it seems to be the basic plan – perhaps – given the high price you put on it.
But instead of making that point from the beginning, before taking this step, Apple waited until anthrax became a block of flame, and then came out with a statement and considered by the Baath to throw ash in the eyes, and justification for justification without providing real evidence, and the future seems ambiguous to this issue and to Where will things come next?
Has conspiracy theory been proven this time?
It seems that the conspiracy theory that this experience is not limited to this matter, has begun to be believed every day passes on Apple, rumors came out strongly that this is done by Apple continuously with each old version after the release of a new version through updates that push Out for their operating system for these older version phones.
This time Apple seems to have fallen into the trap. Discovering this was close to the launch of its revolutionary phone iPhone X, and with the criticism and objections and the great attack that this phone found iPhone X – not technical of course – but for its high and imaginary price has become almost certain.
Adding to this conspiracy theory is the imagination that Apple did not take the initiative to announce what it intends to do in this matter, but took the position of the defender after the frequent attack on it, and to bring lawsuits and criticism against it, after subjected to the phones scrutiny and scrutiny of almost everyone, especially those who are looking for any reason to Kell attack on Apple is angry at its high price.
What people on social media have to say?
Every day, social networking sites are proving to be the undisputed voice of the users.
The speed of the spread of the voice of users is the most advantage of these sites, in a scenario imagined, of course, Apple could have coolly and before Samsung to ignore such voices and pay no attention to them, but they can also deny them, but for sites and blogs – famous of course – It is quite possible to lure her with some exclusive privileges and will completely ignore it and may even reach material temptation.
But with networking sites it has become too much to be ignored, and this is what Apple is aware of him early, perhaps, with a recent statement that may heal the glory of some users, but for others this may be a hair that will separate it from Apple and its products forever, and in the minds of Samsung That still hasn’t fully recovered from the burning of the Galaxy Note 7 .
