The world is in the business of inventing and replacing. Every year there is always something new that comes out and advertisers have to come up with ways to convince us that we actually need the newer versions of the same products they have been producing. In the smartphone industry, we are treated to the latest editions every year with updated screens, cameras and processors. The body is slightly modified to give them a different look but it is still the same smartphone from previous years. The same is found in the motor industry. Every year an updated version of a car model or a facelifted version is released. These products usually trend for a year or two before they are quickly replaced.
