Skanderbeg: Have you noticed how Apple, after promoting the ad in the rain and claiming that the phone was splash proof, also clearly state that water damage is not covered by warranty?

Cdembrey thanks for the post. To ensure truth in advertising, lawmakers should ensure companies are not allowed to promote an attribute unless failure of said attribute is covered by warranty. Currently, in the event that an owner spits with the force of a jet when he speaks into the phone, he may find that he is liable for liquid damage. 😃

Skanderbeg: Have you noticed how Apple avoids any kind of partnership that may overshadow its own brand even if that partnership could materially enhance its capabilities? What they are attempting here is exactly what Huawei has already done, and that company (not Apple) paired up with Leica. What stopped Apple from doing the same? In like fashion Apple (not Microsoft) could have bought Lumia (whose imaging division at the time was arguably more robust than Apple's). Dependence on home grown talent and white-label third party providers is OK if you are still at the front of the innovation pack. If not, it may make sense to look farther afield.

I think you miss the point. Just because Sony manufactured the 8MP and 12MP sensor for the Apple 4/ 4s/ 5/ 5s and 6, doesn't automatically mean that Apple relies on Sony/ Zeiss for camera lens design or camera innovation (which is a whole lot more than just the sensor). And I think it's the attitude. Until recently, even a complete tear down of Apple Phones could not prove who made the sensor, provided the lens etc. I think Apple's anal focus on closed loop development and feeding public perception that this is all internally designed has much to do with it.
