Apple goes out of their way with planned obsolescence with every single one of their products, it isn't just phones. There is no reason why your $4,500 Mac book pro should not have an upgradable CPU, RAM, Storage, GPU, replaceable batteries, etc. Apple leads the pack when it comes to ripping you and mother nature off. PS, I'm no tree hugging hippie-crite... I'm using pure logic and common sense here. Yes, almost every maker of everything these days pushes planned obselessance. Apple is just the best at it. (Ever heard of the "Steve Jobs reality distortion field"? Well now it's just the apple reality distortion field now that his own arrogance and stupidity took him out of circulation. He was a horrible, I'm sorry to disrespect humanity this way, person, An extremely rich, yet morally worthless theif. Your argument is invalid sir.
