Why is Apple the only one capable of making iPhone-class devices?

I've said numerous times over the last year or so that only Apple could have made the iPhone 5 (from which both the current iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c are derived).

One place where Android and Windows Phones have the iPhone beat: Wi-Fi Calling

One place where Android and Windows Phones have the iPhone beat: Wi-Fi Calling

In most respects, I've been really happy with T-Mobile since I switched in April. I pay much less for service through T-Mobile than I did through either AT&T or Verizon, and on the odd occasion I've had to contact their customer service (only twice so far), I've been left feeling better than...

Prior to the launch of the iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c we learned that customers picking one up to run on the O2 network wouldn't get access to 4G LTE immediately. This was most likely down to Apple's certification process, but thankfully all that is now behind us, as the O2 UK Twitter account...
Touch ID

Touch ID for the iTunes Store is great, when it's not asking for your password

Prior to the launch of the iPhone 5s, I went on record on the iMore Show with my one desire for the then much rumored fingerprint sensor.
