Even Samsung A5 or A7 would have taken much better photo.

He probably did, but it's a small low resolution display.

Probably didn't have time to pixel peep.

Because every iDiot who uses an iPhone has been told that everything the iPhone does, it does it perfectly. So why check?

Tim Cook claims just because the iPhone is the most popular selling device, that everything it does is more popular just because its done on an iPhone.

Best selling phones also equals, best picture taking camera, best ui, best app launcher, best OS, best again malware and more.

After you've been told them for 8 years in a row, why second guess it now?

After OSX, IOS is the most vulnerable to malware of any OS.

Someone like Cook should had made fun of this not delete it and look even worst.

Now he just look like someone who try to hide a mistake.

It's really funny to see sometimes top management of a brand do some hilarious act that really embarrasses his Brand and himself .

Tim Cook's just butthurt that people didn't like his photo.
Or maybe something very different caused that Butthurt.

Well it was an honest mistake. The iPhone 6S' takes god aweful pictures.
I think its said with all the money Apple has, the 6S models dont even take better pictures than the 6. What good is 12MP is it cant do better than the 8MP they had before?

Wonder what the iPhone 7 is going to be like?

This is what ya'll get for being cheap while every other OEM is going for the apple juggler.

If the iPhone 7 isn't impressive this year, the sales are goign to drop another 20% from last years numbers.

Hi Tim, my name is also Tim. Nice of you to embarrass yourself and Apple like that.
This is what happens Tim, when you have to much confidence in crappy products.

Thanks for showing us what many of us have known for 8 years now, that the iPhone does indeed take crappy photos.

hey Tim, shouldn't you be rocking a newer iPhone now? Don't you get them for free?

He must have been using the new iPhone 5SE!

If Its's not an iPhone (taking a very Bad Blurry picture) then it's not an iPhone ( phone that takes a Clear picture) its a Galaxy - Samsung

Give the guy a break he just took a bad photo could've been done with any phone and I'm not a fan of Apple I'm all for Microsoft and do not hate other phones or os's.

As beautiful as the iPhone pics can be, I'm still trippin' off the fact he posted that one. It's like, dude...take another one lol.

My 6s plus takes awesome pics. Fact. Can I take a bad pic? Sure I can even with my Canon. He should've know better then to post that pic. Before I got my Note 3 dial in I took some real blurry pics. But it is kind of funny.

But what really amazes me someone here already got 9 posts on here.
Does he have a actual job?

I read on the internet that he used a prototype of iPhone 7 to take that picture. If true, I can't wait to see the revolutionary iPhone 7, because it will be fun to pick on iSheeps.

Even professional cameras can take blurry pictures. Bad things happen, it's not a perfect world, get over it.
