With the latest Snapchat update in September 2015 one must wonder if Snapchat has an exclusive deal with Apple to sell more iPhone units. New iPhone units at that! There have been many issues with Snapchat and iPhone 4 and 4s models. We are now learning that the latest Snapchat selfie filters are not available on Android model phones. That means no matter what Android operating system you are using the latest Snapchat features are unavailable.
Snapchat hired former Apple executive and head of iOS Scott Forstall to be an advisor. One would think they guy that once ran the Apple iOS division could quickly come up with a fix for the broken iPhone 4 and 4s issue, right?
Some of my business friends have wondered if Snapchat and Apple have an exclusive deal. Can you imagine how much Apple could be paying Snapchat to get users on the iPhone. Personally, I even considered getting the latest iPhone, the 6s, because it might be the only phone that gets the latest Snapchat features.
What do you think? Do you think the fix is in? Is this fair to Android and older model iPhone users?
