    Apple just go tired of designing it’s product around crieria it itself helped create many years ago. Not just that but I’m sure the certifications and the inspections cost money. As none of there certifications are any more than a stamp of approval from a watchdog as big as apple has become they threw them the bird. I personally only own as Iphone as far as apple goes, but they are usually more of the efficient end of the CPU/GPU market anyways. I guess san frans hipsters threw a fit over this not realizing it changes nothing about current products but only those under creation. Big decissions, small brains, happens a lot lately/always.
