The Generation of Apple
Apple is a company that creates electronics for people to use in everyday life. The phones they have designed evolved over the years; they get better over the years. Once a new, updated phone comes out, the older one always seems to stop working as good as it used to before the new updated phone.

After the 8th generation of iPhone, the company completely skipped the 9th generation and went straight to the iPhone X. The iPhone 9 didn't get designed mainly because the company made the iPhone XR. According to Pocket-lint, "the iPhone XR was the closest to a 9 they were going to design."
According to cultmac, Tim Cook is the CEO of Apple, and the phones are sold worldwide. The iPhone 11, pro and, pro max are much more expensive than what the prices started out at in the beginning, according to 9TO5Mac: "The iPhone 11 will retail for $699. The iPhone 11 Pro will retail for $999, and the 11 Pro Max will retail for $1,099. Apple is promoting trade-ins of previous models to lower the cost."
Apple has been accused of making the oldest phones not work like normal so that people would have to buy a new updated iPhone from them so their company gets more of what they need to grow and grow.
