    What I don’t like: Instead of getting a new OS release every two years that’s been thoroughly tested and runs smooth from the start, we get one rushed out every year with numerous bugs so we’re running a beta-quality OS for three out of every twelve months!

    I'm sure the JESUS phone is beautiful, but I'll never pay $1,000 + for any mobile device that's going to hit the ground at least once only to end up making me feel sick to my stomach
    To each his/her own. For what it’s worth I dropped my iPhone X on tile the other day and it’s perfectly fine.

    Ok I’ll admit I’m new to iPhone, and have been using Android Phone’s for the past 8 years, this being my first iPhone (a company issued 6s)I really only have 2 things I am really missing one the battery life on the 6s isn’t that good for a brand new phone second thing I do not like this keyboard at all. I installed SwiftKey which is what I’ve been using for years on android but of courses they left out a lot of the customization on iOS, the letters seem smaller, the keyboard is missing all the options available on SwiftKey, no number row, no long press for any punctuation. Really it's just the iPhone keyboard that let's you change colors.

    My main problem with apple is that to me they don't innovate anymore. Just look at the iPhone X the camera is pretty good and the sensors on the front camera are great too but that like the only real innovative thing about the phone. The Face ID recognition may have been perfected by Apple but Samsung and LG beat them too it and the swipe gestures Palm and BlackBerry already had those long before apple did. Not to mention the removal of the headphone jack annoys me and we'll as them removing the fingerprint reader.

    This is only a fraction of my problems with apple innovation in the modern days. Because of this I have not bought a new Apple product since 2013 and don't plan to anytime soon.

    The convenience is great, but I base my audio product price tags off of audio quality and there is absolutely no way Apple put that level quality in the AirPods. I would love to try them, but I’ll never pay that price myself.
    AirPods are my favorite things apple has released is years. Well worth the money in my opinion.

    I'll happily try a heavily discounted or free pair. I'm sure I would use them more than my BeatsX even, I'm just never going to pay $100 or more for them. The EarPods are a stretch at $30, and just giving them a wireless chip doesn't justify a $130 price hike in my opinion.

    That’s the thing. People who haven’t tried them say the same thing. People who have loved them. It’s more than just a wireless chip that makes hem different.

    I see that all the time too, I will never think they are worth $100 or more though.

    Until a week ago I had an Watch series 0.
    To listen songs via my Watch on the AirPods I had to disconnect the AirPods from the iPhone and only then I could connect them to my Watch.

    With the Watch Series 3 the AirPods are connected simultaneously to both the Watch and the iPhone.
    Tapping playing on one will pause the other and vice versa.
    As long as other wireless headphones can’t do this, the AirPods will be well worth their money for me.

    I’ve heard some people say they don’t see enough Apple criticism on iMore. So let’s jump into it then, I’d like to keep this an active thread if possible. I’ll post my own dislikes later, for now, what do you not like about Apple?
    As for your opening sentence, I really DONT want iMore to became a nest of haters and resident trolls like MacRumors. A place where every single Apple move is criticized and every single bug is blow out of proportion.
    Yes, Apple is not perfect, and yes, sometimes their policy is disappointing. But we can always opt out of their ecosystem if we don’t like it anymore.
    Something isn’t going to happen any soon in my case, since I really like their products.

    As far I’m concerned what I don’t like about Apple, being an Apple user since 1989, mostly are some hardware choices on very expensive devices (i.e. no user replaceable battery or ram on Mac, 2 GB of RAM on 2017/2018 iPhone, selling iPhone with 16 GB of storage for too much time...) and their price policy outside US, where prices are sometimes ridiculously high.

    The greed in their pricing. I mean I’m going to pay whatever they ask. I always have. But an iPhone now costing $1149? Apple care $200? It’s like $1450 after tax if you pay retail. It’s not just the phone. MacBook Pro’s and all have sky rocketed in the past couple of years.

    Greed is what I don’t like about Apple.
    Yep, that’s my bigger point of criticism.
    Do you want to sell me a $1400 premium iPhone ? Fine, than put in 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage minimum, and give me a quick charger in the package. Don’t cheap out on a device that expensive!

    I was firm in my stance to. I was positive there was no way they were worth it. I allowed myself to be proven wrong. It sounds like there is zero chance of that happening in your case. That is your choice and totally cool. Nobody should try to make anyone see value in something that they just don’t want to see the value in. You have a different solution that works for you.

    On the other side I was positive that I would not like the Beats X. I was 100% correct. I bought a pair, tried using them for a couple weeks and took them back. I got them for around $100 on sale. I was hoping to save a few bucks over the AirPods. I hated them. I absolutely would not use them if they were free. I did let myself try them though and found out that my suspicion was correct in that case.

    What didnt you like about the Beats X? Im in search if a new pair of headphones for the gym to use with my Apple Watch and those are ones high on my list. I wear glasses so the powerbeats hooks annoy me.

    As for the airpods, I just cant get past how ridiculous they look. The concept is excellent but the design is just weird imo.

    I didn’t like anything about the Beats X. They were not comfortable, the cord is too long for me and just gets in the way and the sound wasn’t any better than the airpods, in my opinion.

    I have PowerBeats 2 and love them. I’ve used them for a while and they are just about at the end of life. They’ve seen a lot. Lol.

    I thought the airpods looked weird too, but after using them I don’t care. I used to asked what they were all the time. Now, I see people wearing them all the time and nobody even asks me what they are anymore.

    I thought the AirPods were dumb, but when I got a pair a couple of months ago I was and wasn’t surprised at how much I liked them. The sound quality doesn’t improve but I’m not the type of person to be sitting in my den and throwing on some music in a quiet room. I primarily listen with earbuds on when working out. The convenience of AirPods justify the price, for me. Never have to worry about charging.

    Nothing, I am all Apple and very happy where I am. I have my iPhone, Apple TV, and am saving for a Mac.
    I also recently decided to subscribe to Apple Music.
