Term describing the pre-meditated set of accumulated difficulties with Apple devices over time. These difficulties include increasingly insensitive buttons/touch screen, as well as an inability to make use of new network capabilities. Devices inevitably become extremely frustrating to use just as the next generation device comes to market.
The home button on my iPhone 4 crapped out just as the sweet new 5 came out. Planned Jobsolescence has compelled me to donate more money to Apple.
