You bought yourself a new iPhone 6S. But do you really own it? Or is still property of the company that built it or your wireless carrier? It depends on how you acquired it.
1. Payed full price: You own it This is the best way of guaranteeing you own it.
2. Pay full price on the installment plan: They own it.
3. Lastly, purchase an iPhone: Apple owns it.
Even if you pay full price for your iPhone, Apple alone decides what apps can be distributed through the App Store.
Apple also ensures that you can’t hack an iPhone to a more open state. Many believe that it’s depriving them of ownership.
Would do you think of Apple and all the control they really have over you?
