The iPhone is the Justin Bieber of all smartphones. In the US, one in ten people over the age of 13 own an iPhone. Sneak peeks of upcoming versions of the iPhone, both real and fake, sweep the internet like a plague every few months. 75% of Apple stores sold out of the iPhone on Black Friday. Some people have literally been murdered over this piece of technology.
But with emerging Androids that have more capabilities and allow the user more freedom than the iPhone, Apple’s decision to completely change the way iPhone users charge their phones by using a different type of dock connector, and sky-high bills, it’s becoming clearer that buying an iPhone is nothing more than a trendy decision — and a financially irresponsible one at that.
