Here's a video of a guy named Jean being surprised to find out what we learned earlier in the week: Any sort of iPhone app installation, unlocked or not, won't be supported by the warranty Indian Givers at Apple. No Service for You! What brings the whole situation home for me is to see the loss and pain this guy's face expresses as he finds out he's SOL.

Turn up the headphones, this one is muddled. The Lesson is, if you're going to try to slip one by Apple, play dumb: "What's an app?"

And while this isn’t Google’s first attempt at something like this, this third Pixel (we evaluated both it and the Pixel 3 XL) is the device that really pulls all of Google’s efforts together and makes it feel special.
