1499? What is wrong with people? A constant lust for something others don't have - until they all do, only to become outdated quickly and replaced a year later by another thing others don't have - until they do...

It's a matter of perspective. There are over 8 million taxpayers in the US with an AGI over 500k. This is barely a day's income for them.

Oh come on, that's truly repulsive what you've just written. There's also millions of people who can't afford to eat along with 65 million people who are displaced through war or climate change. The world is in such a disgusting mess simply through greed! And Apple is promoting greed more than any other company these days.

Hooray! Now we can keep "winning" any market share arguments with "...but who has the most profitable phone" for another year. Thank you so much Apple. We fans appreciate knowing we can always play THAT card to settle any debate.

Here's hoping for $1799 next year!

And hoping Apple finance will stretch out the payment plan so we can keep spinning how little it is monthly, when spread over maybe 48-72 months of payments.

All ;)
