it doesn’t matter what apple put in the iPhone 16 folks flock to it and upgrade as such . People will try to justify the upgrade from a iPhone 15pm to a 16pm
Most iPhone customers use the iPhone Upgrade Program according to Apple. So there’s no friction. That’s why everyone upgrades. Every year all you have to do is place the order and send back your current phone.

Great show this week. I listened to it twice because I felt like I missed the AI conversation, and I'm right there with you about just wanting Siri to be better. For example, if I'm in Driving Mode (And my Car Play doesn't work), if I ask Siri to get direction, I shouldn't have to unlock the Iphone for that. It should be able to pull up the directions. Heck, Driving focus should basically work like Car Play if you don't have Car Play enabled. It should automatically unlock the phone and if you want Siri to play songs, it should be able to do that. Siri should not be limited in 2024.
