There is no use for apple to make a iPhone 6 because then it will do the same thing as android. You can just go buy an android

Argument:
Apple as a business should continue to make newer iPhones. My reasoning follows below...
  1. Apple is a business.
  2. Businesses have an innate interest in making money.
  3. New iPhones are profitable.
  • Therefore Apple should continue to make new Iphones.


Further a competitive market keeps the technology in both phone types advancing at a faster pace, thus it's in the interest of Android users such as yourself for Apple to continue making new phones.

"then it will do the same thing as android"
To my limited knowledge, they are both phones; already by nature doing the same thing.

Yes they are phones and they will do the same thing but android makes different phones not iPhone this iPhone that they have different names therefore android is better there is no use in making new iPhones 5 is it and that shall be only

"they have different names therefore android is better"
As subjective as this is, I disagree. The iPhone tells everyone it's primary function within the name, thus less confusion thus if name defines quality the iPhone is superior. Even if not superior, it would remain in Apple's interest to develop more iPhones to sell to the tech hungry market.
iPhones vs Android.
(speaking of name confusion)

"there is no use in making new iPhones 5"
I concede this point, as the iPhone5 premiered in March [1]. This debate is focused on if Apple should invest in making the iPhone 6.

Profit:
Expanding on R1, last year Apple netted a gross $80.5 billion in revenue from iPhone sales.

Unless otherwise notified, I shall assume the Android shown in R2 has reached singularity, and killed pro.

Anyway as a final point, iPhones are primarily a hardware type, with some nifty features like a very tough face. Android is in fact an operating system, which is the real danger to humanity.

Advice:
Make a point, then press Enter, then make another point. This shall allow your ideas to cluster less, increasing your organization credit in voting.

Additionally I've left an intentional weakness in round2, which if you expand upon you should be able to claim the victory (it'll be insulting to both brands, but I know it'd influence my vote).
