      In this tech world Apple doesn't need release first, they just let Samsung release first then Apple make it better.
      In financial/profit it make sense because apple can make it cheaper for the iphone more profit.

        Also where is Iphone XR $749.

                              Because it's a trillion dollar company and share holders demand good returns.
                              Samsung has the same dilemma while none of the Chinese companies are hostages of greedy investors.

                                    Windows computers are cheaper, but windows is full of glitches, windows 10 is a disaster, almost as bad as windows vista

                                      Well I've watched all kinds of videos about apple prices and read enough articles to conclude that people who buy Apple products lack basic intelligence. There's no other explanation. I'm not buying the whole "ecosystem" argument. You're stupid.
