Look, if you listen to your Spotify while you’re shaving your legs in the bathtub, then you’re probably heading straight towards water damage territory, so you’re not included. But for people who know how to adult, Apple have come out and put a ridiculously unrealistic lifespan on the humble (not if you choose rose gold), iPhone, and we are freaking the eff out.
According to the fruitful peeps are Apple HQ, the iPhone lasts a massive three years. Yes, we’re talking toddler age! TBH, we heart the genius folks at the Apple bar as much as the next person, but we think they’re being a tad too generous with their estimation.
The info on their site states that customers should expect, “Years of use, which are based on first owners, [and] are assumed to be four years for OS X and tvOS devices and three years for iOS and watchOS devices.”
Yeah, fo’ sure. Maybe if you encase your phone in bubble wrap, set it to airplane mode and use an official Selfie Stick (as opposed to a dodgy one you picked up at the servo). But even then, you’ll get it to last until the end of your 24-month contract. And that’s pushing it!
Soz, Apple. We might be chumps who are under your spell and totes obsessed with all of the accessories you have to offer, but we aren’t buying this one. Not today, anyway.
