Seriously - if that's possible - things on my list:

1) I want to see the XR-S, whatever it's called. I am going to consider that for my next iPhone.

2) Apple Tile-like product. Even at a ridiculous price point like $99, could be awesome.

3) Next gen AppleTV to go with my new 4k boobtube.

4) 16" MacBook Pro for potential purchases at work.

I've given up on the dream of the mid-range tower...

- iPhone XR price reduction with colors to match the colorful iMacs: Bondi and Dalmation please

- A more portable Apple TV...the aforementioned Apple TV on an HDMI stick. If not that, at least make it rechargeable with a creative HDMI cable solution.

- A package deal that includes a small iPad Pro, Folio Keyboard and Pencil at a cost that is not more than a MacBook Air

G5 PowerBook!!!

Other than that, I’d like there to still be some phone offered in a size similar to the 6/7/8 physical format. Updated guts. Maybe edge-to-edge. Basically the mythical SE 2 everyone’s been hoping for. I’m tired of Apple upgrading my iPhone size every time I upgrade phones.

I predict:
1. Larger phones and other products I don't really care about.
2. At ridiculous prices I can't justify even if I wanted them.

I’d like an AppleTV to replace my Roku. I think.

I’m pretty sure Apple’s going to be getting more of my money. Soon.

Super Retina XDR Display?!

That Sony naming convention territory.

Just need a number and a bunch of 0s.

iPhone Pro...

Lots of high level features but still... I don't like the 'Pro' moniker.

so it looks like, similar to the X, they are discontinuing the XS. that's the one i have been wanting. the XR is a tad too large and the screen on the XS was better. the Pro is overkill for me and the IP11 looks like it's an upgraded XR. plus, i don't like the colors. seems childish.

so, will Apple sell the XS at full price until 9/20? will it be completely unavailable from Apple after that? is that what happened with the X?

Stuff I don't need at a price I won't pay.

My SE continues to do everything I desire (and my old iPhone 4 did too, but batteries wear out and apps get upgraded). I'm not a gamer, I don't use the camera, my apps are pretty basic - in short, a sub-$200 used phone works fine when the option is a $600 new one.

Today's presentation frankly bored me. There was no "WOW" at all, but that seems to be the current Apple.

Apple's pricing has been so insulting for so long, that I'm actually pleasantly surprised. I know some of you are ho-hum about the offerings—especially those looking for a 4" phone. But a $150 price drop on the iPhone 8 and XR, two excellent phones, is pretty impressive. And the 11 at $50 less than the previous XR price is a lot of bang for the buck compared to the 5s I've been making do with the past several months.

My 6 started experiencing touch and home button diseases, and I couldn't justify replacing it with anything at the previous prices knowing the refresh was coming.

The good news is the current gen is basically the same size as last year. Can visit any BB to compare form factors.

I was thinking of the XR-S, but that might be too large.
