    We have the best environments you've ever seen. Huuuge environments.

      They certainly spend a lot of time thinking about what we think they think about the environment.

      Anyone curious should google the reality of the iPhone disassembly robot PR stunt and the reality of iPhone "recycling" if you can even call it that.

    Seems like they're on the defensive.

    Makes me consider Android even more.

    iPhone 8 is going to be a make-or-break for Apple. The S8 looks gorgeous, I'm considering the switch to Android.

      I agree. The primary argument seems to be "Don't worry, we don't have any confusing powerful features or options..."

      They're not selling anything to me, and I'm not sure who they're audience for this is. Unless you're already an iPhone user and nodding your head as you read along.

      Me too. If the next iPhone doesn't have a headphone jack, which it most likely wont there is no way I'll be buying it.

      Yeah this wont be converting anyone. No one asks those questions. And cheap-looking emoji aren't helping their case either.

      I do think that a lot of the Android hardware is fantastic. My choice would be the Motorola Z series more than Samsung's products. Motorola devices offer a clean native Android experience with only a little extra that ends up enhancing the native experience which makes the Motorola a better device (to me).

      I switch to Android occasionally, and the hardware can be as amazing as it wants to be...the software is simply subpar compared to the equivalent version on iOS. And I find nothing within Apple's hardware that limits me on an iPhone. I find that the camera is just as good, and things like force touch (3d touch? insert marketing name) are very missed on Android. Simple things add up. The only thing I'd really like to see on an iPhone is external storage capabilities (SD card?), but I don't see that coming anytime soon.

        This is a really interesting perspective; as a long-time Android user I feel that the iPhone's primary advantage is in hardware.

          It used to be like this but not anymore. The reason I didn't switch to Android or Windows are apps and the SW ecosystem in general.

            Yeah I think the third-party software ecosystem is better for iPhone, but I disagree it has a general software advantage. There are great, great Android-only apps (terrible ones, too; but that is not unique to either platform). The biggest detractors for Android are Facebook & Snapchat, imo, but that's those companies not caring.

      Best phone I've ever used, touched, seen, owned... the s8 is gorgeous and the form factor is perfect.

      The Samsung phones come with tons of bloatware, and their own poorly designed messaging and phone calling apps. You can find other custom ones, but they're never as good as native.

      The only way to go Android is to get a Google phone or other vanilla phone that isn't tainted with bloatware.

    That was a bit crappy. Even scrolling slowly the content doesn't load before the screen section has gone past and the clip-art style thumbs up and cyclist don't exactly scream premium product.

    I dig the message and format of dismissing concerns but there's not really killer on the page that iPhone does differently or better than a similarly premium Android device that would make me want to switch

      Switch? Perhaps not, but I'll take the security and iOS UI over Android any day.

        As a mac user (imac, macbook, iphone)and UI designer I find iOS's UI is horrible. But I'm stuck in this walled garden now so I have to live with it.

          I'm in the same boat. I'm a UX/UI designer that lives in the macOS ecosystem (both at work and at home) and can't imagine my devices not 'talking' to each other out of the box. I also agree that their UI and features are getting stale. Here are a few examples of why I just can't imagine switching to Android, even-though I believe they have surpassed Apple in a lot of ways.

          Apple TV: kids lost the remote once again? Just use iPhone.

          Apple Watch: walk up to my iMac at home or MacBook Pro at work and it unlocks - just like that.

          FaceTime Video / Audio: doesn't matter which device I'm using, they will all ring and receive messages and are all capable of making calls.

          I'm sure there are many more examples I'm not thinking about at the moment, but all these 'little' things add up to keep me in their echo system. I'm sure I'm just ignorant as to what Android devices are capable of, but I'm definitely not a fan of the idea of purchasing an Android device that might have extra software installed and go out of my way to install a clean copy of Android OS. I also always read that some people get updates, some people don't, etc. If Google actually made their own hardware and no one else did, then I would make the jump. I might be dating myself, but this reminds me of the Windows PC era where each manufacturer added their own stuff to Windows that would ruin the experience for people like my parents that aren't 'computer' savy - but they sure know how to use Apple products. There's a reason why I'm considering purchasing a Microsoft Surface: I trust Microsoft to sell me what they believe is the best version of themselves and not depend on other manufacturers to do that on their behalf (yes - I know Google just started making their own with the Pixel, but I've also read that it's manufactured by HTC.

          Went on a rant there - sorry. I guess I'm waiting for the day that Google delivers a product from start to finish.

          End rant.

            And iPhones are made by Foxcomm, with Samsung parts

          Compared to Android apps I can assure you iOS applications are significantly better. Outside of a few core Android apps the great majority of them are poorly implemented, and have half the value of their iOS counterparts. I recently (past month) tried to switch again. I really like Android, but I became so annoyed with the performance and usability of Android apps that I just sold my phone, and went back to my iPhone.

          One example was a game that loads instantly on iOS requires some weird additional download on start that took 5-10 minutes to download. And this happened with each update of the application. Extremely annoying...a first world problem? Yes. But annoying.

            Thats quite a good point. I barely install new apps to be honest. The most used apps I have are Insta, FB messenger and apple wallet (for plane tickets) and im sure Android would have something similar to that.

    Using iPhone as a pronoun without "the", "my" or "your" just feels real weird to me.

    This makes me feel absolutely nothing. I'm also very much seeing the limits of San Francisco as a display typeface.

      I'm curious, can you elaborate on what you mean by seeing the limits of San Francisco?

      • Steven CavinsSteven Cavins, over 1 year ago

        Sure! And obviously this may be a taste thing, but in terms of a "display" typeface, I think SF suffers a lot versus a simple workhorse "text" UI typeface it's probably mostly suited for. I don't think it works very well for tag lines, headlines and generally larger text, as seen here. I think Myriad Pro & Lucida Grande historically worked much better in general for such purposes for Apple.

    Looks like Apple love gradients, I've seen them in Clips App website and now on the new released Switch from Android.

    Maybe Apple is teasing the new iOS design?

    Having switched last year from iPhone to a Pixel XL, I'm never going back. Android has gotten really good, and I don't miss anything about my iPhone except maybe iMessage. My next laptop will probably be a PC too.

      I did exactly the same ~3months ago. Switched from iPhone to Pixel, and I'm not going back in the near future. Android on a Pixel is in many cases so much superior to iOS. (still using my MBP though, and won't switch this device anytime soon)

    A worthy marketing approach. But definitely not in line with their brand voice. I remember the GIFs more than I do what actually is being talked about.
