iMore show 394: Repercussion modeling


The display quality is like night & day Peter Cohen looked like he was using high def equipment while Rene was using much worse. Watching the podcast on my iPad mini with Retina Display. Just thought I would throw that out there. Watched it thru the imore website.

Loved your show as always, however I think you're missing some points on iPhone 5c 8GB. Apple released it mainly in coutries of rapidly developing LTE network, having the fastest connection on such a great device has many advantages, it can let the clients to use their iPhones in a completely new ways. For example who needs a lot of storage space for music if using Spotify, iTunes Match or other services allowes you to stream on the fly all the music you want to hear right now. Why having all that space for photos when you can use LTE to quickly browsing all the pictures you want to see from the cloud. You can download your favourite show to the disc or now you can use LTE to watch it in an app and having no storage wasted. Of course it's not for everybody, heavy gamers or app lovers won't benefit from 8 GB iPhone, but in some markets it makes a lot of sense, Apple approach the clients that have specific needs and can use their devices in new ways, giving them the cheapest 4 inch, fully ios 7 compatible, beautiful iPhone. It is also great comunication device, Facetime, Skype, all messangers, you don't need much storage to fully take advantage of them, you just need fast network connection and LTE can deliver it. Apple playing only in high end smartphone market need to squeeze everything out of it, the latest 5c release is a valid point to their strategy, especially considering some markets like Europe to be very price sensitive.
