Not until they add a MicroSD card to upgrade memory without having to pay a lot more than the cost of a MicroSD card and have to get a whole new phone besides. And eliminate switching between two keypads. And not having to buy proprietary cables... So, my answer is no, if anyone hasn't guessed!

Actually held off getting mrs. cbelt3 a new phone to wait for this. I'm hoping for an iPhone SE-x.

Last night I brought home socks from the store.
"Now you can tell your friends I gave you a whole lot of sox last night."
A wry smile and an eye roll were the response.

I would really like to be excited about an Apple event again. But I suspect that nothing that is announced today will be anything that I will want to own or use, unless there is a spiffy new iPad Mini in the mix.

I’m just glad that I can get along nicely with my current gear for at least a couple of years.

This crowd? old fogey smiley

Get off my lawn.

Im sure 90% of us said this same thing last year -- yet somehow Apple managed to be worth a Trillion bucks, and sell 40 million + iPhones every quarter (which is what this event is about)

only because my work iPhone 6 can be replaced by the new low-end iPhone, maybe that's the 8? 7? I guess we'll see what the lineup changes to.

I am.

I don't know when I'll be buying.

My SE is an att pre-paid 'Phone. I have to use it six months before I can unlock it, and I think that's on a pre-paid account, and not on my currently post-paid account.

That means I'd have to drop my current account, go pre-paid, unlock, then get a new 'Phone on a post-paid account.

New iPad was a just a few months ago -- so no new iPad. If you have waited this long, and are really trying to save a buck -- they will be cheap on BF.

If you have an older iPad, try trading it in. Got $60 for a mini.

oh, and if you are on a huge budget -- 2017 refurbs from apple are $240. Nearly identical to 2018 -- excpcet for pencil support.

I'd be excited for some movement on the Mac side of the coin. There's very little that could happen on the phone front to make me excited for it.

My iPhone is a year old.
My newest Mac is 4 years old and a damaged hand me down.

Call me when they announce new affordable Macs.

PS: my ringer's off, I don't expect to miss anything.

My iPhone is 4 years old, and my newest Mac is Early 2013. Call me when I can afford a refurb.

Depending on your definition of "affordable" -- well that would be... never.

A base 27" iMac for $1000 would be a start. Maybe not afforable to some, but its certainly more affordable than $1800.

I'm still using my 5S, 32GB, with the original battery. Definitely want to replace it. I was waiting to see what was announced today. I wouldn't consider anything less than a model with 64GB. Perhaps I should consider a factory refurbished 8, if I see a good deal on one.

With the launch of iPhone XS and iPhone XR, Apple has stopped selling the iPhone SE and iPhone 6s. Both lines are no longer available to purchase directly. The iPhone X is also no longer available through Apple, with the iPhone XS taking its place in the lineup.

Apple says these models are available at authorized resellers, with no guarantees on how long production will continue.

To make up for the fact that the SE is effectively no longer sold, Apple has shifted pricing on its older iPhone models down. iPhone SE costs $349. The iPhone 7 now starts at $449, so not as cheap as the SE price point but closer.

Naturally, Apple wants to promote its latest flagship phones. However, both come with hefty price tags. The cheaper XR starts at $749.

iPhone XS will be available for pre-order this Friday, September 14, starting at $999 for the 64GB XS and $1099 for the 64GB XS Max. The phones go on sale next week, September 21.

The iPhone XR will be available for pre-order on October 19, with devices going on sale one week later on October 26.

I have the X, so no new iPhone for me (although the camera is intriguing...NO!).

I do think that I'm going to finally bite on the new Watch. Not having to worry about my phone falling out on a ride, and being able to tell my wife that I'm going to be out a little longer without stopping and pulling out my phone is worth the high cost to me.

My mother's iPhone 5 is pretty much unusable. I may get a new iPhone 8 or Xr and give her my iPhone 7.

I'm really waiting to see what type of deals are found at the AT&T store (2 years ago they gave $650 trade-in value for an iPhone 6 if you bought a 7/7Plus) and Costco (currently BOGO + $250 rebate on iPhone 8 but you have to have Direct TV as well, which I do not).

Im seeing at least 2 new phones in my future. Prob a pair of Xrs. Maybe a pair of 8/8+ tho to save on $.

We need a new phone in the house, and daughters 16GB 6 is constantly full. So rotate a 7 to the youngest and get 2 new. My 64 GB SE will last forever. It gets used for calling and texting only.

If the do a BOGO on the Xr, thats cheaper than 2 8/8s at full price... so will have to see.

I think the elimination of the SE, 6S and X models was surprising and telling.

No new AirPods either.

Might be awhile before we get a new iPhone, the other 3 family members love their headphone jacks.
