Is it worth upgrading your iPhone or Apple Watch? 

The big news last week was the announcement by Apple of its three new iPhones, including its biggest and most expensive model yet and the new Apple Watch Series 4. Is it worth it to upgrade your iPhone or Apple Watch? That’s the question that Marcello Sukhdeo tackles in this episode of WRLWND Radio.

Show Notes:

At its special event, Apple announced three new iPhones. These phones are already being criticized by people around the world for lacking innovation and it is being seen as part of Apple’s strategy to increase revenue by increasing the prices.

These iPhones are bigger, faster and more expensive. That is the strategy that Apple is using to continue growing revenue.

By making the phones larger and faster, and then charging more for them, the company is milking a product line that has already saturated the market. The new iPhones would start at $750, $1,000 and $1,100. The starting prices last year were $700, $800 and $1,000.

The Apple Watch Series 4 has been redesigned to have a more health focus.

This is the first time Apple as redesigned its watch since it was launched in 2015. The new watch is slightly thinner and has a larger display area.

Apple said the new watch had a faster processor and better health and motion sensors. For instance, the watch can detect when a wearer has fallen down and would prompt the person to alert emergency services. If it detects no motion by the wearer after a minute, it calls automatically.

Another feature, is the watch can perform an electrocardiogram, alerting you to worrisome heart rhythms.

Thanks for listening.
