Lol. Apple gets absolutely slaughtered when it comes to anything remotely bad. I mean, surely people knew aluminium was easy enough to bend in the first place!

And quite rightly, when they're charging a massive premium on their devices.

"$242.50 for the iPhone 6 Plus." (Teardown cost)
"iPhone 6 Plus 16GB: $649.99" (List price for handset only)

Difference of $407.49 (~ 253.16)

If 62% of the money you pay for a device is pure profit (almost**) in their pocket, then I too would expect the build quality to be nigh on perfect... this also isn't the first time that the lock screen on iOS has been the source of compromise. So yes. Shit on them from a substantial height.

(Also, I get that most people get the handset "cheap" through a contract. But those contracts are about 50 quid a month - for 24 months. That's 1164 across the contract period, leaving 544 or 22 per month for the mobile operator. So still, not exactly "cheap")

Also, I just read that the reason for iCloud leak recently, is because there wasn't a limit on the amount of times you could try a password. So iCloud accounts could easily be bruteforced.

Apple haven't been doing well with PR recently...
