For years now, I’ve judged the various iPhones I’ve owned as offering value for money. Yes, they are expensive but I’ve always felt that price guaranteed quality hardware and outstanding software that work seamlessly together. Now I’m not so sure that’s the case.
Two things have changed my thinking. Firstly the almost certain likelihood that the next iPhone 7 will loose the 3.5mm headphone jack.
No matter what the arguments from Apple are for doing this – it’s a ridiculous decision. It’s very simple. If this rumour turns out to be true – I’m out. Permanently.
Secondly, is something more fundamental. I no longer feel the iPhone offers value compared to some of the new low-cost but exceptionally priced handsets such as the outstanding OnePlus 3.
My iPhone 6plus may very well be my last.
