In the days of new civil rights causes are popping up left and right in America it might interest some that your iPhones are being made by slaves in concentration camps. Wish this was some Alex Jones level reporting but it’s not, it is Business Insider.
7 Apple suppliers in China have links to forced labor programs
Apple suppliers have used thousands of Uyghur Muslims in forced labor programs in China, The Information reports.
China has been accused of genocide of the minority group, detaining them in internment camps.
Apple in the past has denied using suppliers who rely on forced labor in China.
The jump from 11 to 12 was my shortest interval. I kept my 11 for less than a year and a half. The only I reason was that I was fixing to have to swap the battery and my carrier ran a fantastic special that I couldn’t refuse. So I traded it instead of replacing the battery.
My other phones were 2 to 2.5 years between swaps. The longest time was the 7 Plus. I kept it for 2 years and 7 months, enough time to have swapped the battery in it at the proper 500 cycles.I also swapped batteries in my 5 and and 6, both of which suffered degradation early on in their service lives.
My luck with phone batteries has been… so so. But I have the tools and knowledge to swap them out myself so I always went that route whenever possible.
