Apple force us to but its new products
I have been very upset that my iPhone 6 has slowed down a great deal. My battery was tested and it showed it to be healthy. Think Apple has done this so that it will force you to buy an iPhone 8 or an iPhone X. I do not buy their excuse the new software does not run on the older phones. My iPhone was running perfectly until they slowed it down through a software update and this was originally done without the customer's knowledge. I also learned for the first time today that when Apple does a screen share on your computer they record your computer. As a customer, I don't like the fact you are forced to have your computer recorded if you need to screen share with a tech agent. I don't think any customer wants their computer information recorded. There is no telling what Apple will do with that information. We saw the problems with what Facebook did with their members' information.

we apologize for this problem and we will try to fix it as soon as possible. please try to install the latest ios update? (I did that and the phone became even slower)

Apple is trying to make the old iPhones like iphone6 and iphone7 become slow to force you to buy iPhone x and 10. Don't install any software update if you have iPhone 6 or 7.

Do all major websites sell our info to opportunists
I recently decided to make a mobile app for Apple and thus I had to register on the Apple developer website and make payments with my credit card. Since then spammers are sending me spam emails, phishing attempts, SEO services, and sales offers etc etc, all vaguely related to my newly created apple ID.

Emails are coming from Paypal look alikes, Apple look alikes, Google look alikes, MSN look alikes, yahoo look alikes etc etc all relating and referring to my activity on Apple website. I never had this type of spam coming to me before my connection with apple. I wonder how do these spammers came to know, what I did on apple website just a few days ago. Amidst all this Apple forces you to use your real name while registering, asks you to send a piece of ID to verify, I dont know what and bla bla bla. Making you vulnerable to so much spam. On the other hand if I wanted to get a real piece of ID from apple or talk to someone at Apple, it will be so hard to get to a live person.

All this spam filling my inbox. Is it just a coincidence. I dont think so, and One wonders how is Apple the most secure platform in the world...

I have stopped buying Apple or Samsung. We are making all these untouchables so huge, they have started manipulating our lives. I bought a new smart phone for 250 dollars from a Chinese website. It has all that others offer. 128 GB of ROM, 6 GB of RAM, has an extremely nice finish and feel, allows 2 SIM cards, is light like a feather, works with a well known open source OS, and I will throw it away after a year and buy a new one, much better in specs. There is nothing so important that I need to save on my phone and that only Apple and Samsung can make secure and safe. I have no need to spend USD 1000 on a false sense of security...

PayPal Trade Center
1. Does paypal trade center send emails
2. Why would you hide the IP address at the top and then show it in the middle
3. AliExpress is using AliPay why would they send something through PayPal.
4. Why the email address shows as <>.
5. Did you order an iPhone. Do you really believe that someone (a long lost aunt with a phone factory) will send a free phone to you.
6. The address 5 Lane 80 Taiyuen Road Datong District Taipei City 10349 Taiwan shows up as an example for writing a correct address on This shows that the spammer is somehow aware of which is a regional logistics provider for 10 countries within the Asia Pacific region.
7. The IP address mentioned from where someone tried to buy an iphone with your email address belongs to JAPAN:

Phishing for Apple ID - Suspicious Email
Symantec is cautioning users to be skeptical of emails claiming to be from Apple. This event presents scammers with more credibility when attempting to phish for Apple IDs, especially now that many users are concerned about the safety and security of their Apple IDs and devices. The emails adopt some of the following subject lines:

Please update your Apple account now
Apple – Your Account Is Not Confirmed
Please Verify Account Information For Your Apple ID
please verify the email address associated with your Apple ID

These subjects are used to trick users into opening emails, improving the odds that they may click on the links within them.

If a user clicks on a link within the phishing email, they are directed to a Web page that on the surface looks like the real My Apple ID page. However, if users check the address bar, they will see a suspicious URL for a website that is not secure (HTTPS), which should raise suspicion.
