The average consumer still feels they have to go into a store and touch and feel a phone and won't just buy one online based on specs.

And you say that like it's a bad thing? Does anyone still remember how the Pentium 4 had such a fast GHZ but was in fact, slower than the Pentium 3, especially the server versions of that CPU?

Going by specs would be completely stupid.

Comment Not defending Apple, but... (Score 2) 410

There is the possibility that Apple discovered some TLAs have been fucking with their TouchID and using it to steal fingerprints/bypass TouchID.

Otherwise, Apple typically prefers to have good user interaction rather than bad interaction, and they have to know that if they brick enough people's devices, it's going to be extremely bad press, and reduce the chances of people immediately upgrading when new versions come out - which is a number they really like to keep as high as possible!

To balance that bad press, against people hacking TouchIDs, and them falling on the "lets keep it secure" side, I can see that happening.

40 mil units over the lifetime of a product, a 2 year period, vs 40 mil units in one quarter, is a little different. Not as much as a couple of thousand vs 40 mil in a quarter, of course. But as others have mentioned, OLEDs aren't known for color accuracy when it first came out.

Apple screens _are_ known for color accuracy. Until OLEDs can match the color accuracy, Apple wouldn't move to them.
