Uh, no. A stupid headline and crazy-assed perspective from Kif Leswing on CNBC:
The iPhone 11 models Apple launched this week were more camera than phone.
Sure, they can still send texts, download apps, and make video calls, but Apple spent a lot of time and effort marketing its new phones as powerful photography machines.
Maybe because smartphones are not so much about phones these days.
It’s the latest sign that camera technology is where Apple believes it can make the biggest improvements to the iPhone and where it can distinguish itself from its rivals including Samsung and Huawei
Do CNBC’s writers ever read what they write? Apple is playing catch-up here, folks.
One major reason that Apple is focusing on camera improvements this year is simple: Consumers care about camera quality and take a lot of photos with their phones.
You wouldn’t know it based on how long Apple customers take to upgrade their iPhones these days. Apple is a hardware company, not a camera company, not a Services company, not a Wearables accessories company.
