I want an iPhone with one of the new touchID power buttons. Until the pandemic is over, FaceID really is a step backwards compared with the older TouchID.

But I do NOT want a home button on the front!

a full screen SE the size of the original SE (yeah, I know it isn't going to happen)

I would like a new phone similar to the XR that is available immediately.

I want to see a 12 mini 'Phone, updated running gear, bezel-less, 128G, and Touch ID.

I saw a rumor elsewhere that it would be only 4G RAM and 64G, which I don't believe.

This may be someone who thought they heard a rumor or might want to start one.

Anyway, if it's 64G/256, I'll have to go 256.

My OG SE is 128, and I've got 30G free.

I wouldn't expect to see a single MB/MBP/mini/iMac tomorrow.

The will all be next month.

I would like to see a new ATV, though.

There may be headphones.

And headphones with spatial awareness would be freaky cool.

Maybe they'll be designed to work with AR/VR!

Phones. Only phones you all ask for!

Has anyone gotten rid of their computers and use only their phones for everything?

I guess I'd like to see a line of Apple "Technics" computers. Just good specs; no gimmicks. Does anyone find the Touch Bar useful?

You can connect a phone to a bt mouse, bt kb and external monitor via connector. But that just mirrors the display and blows it up. A "desktop mode" with smaller icons/controls etc would make that useful as a DT replacement.

I'd settle for something approaching or equal to a 5K iMac.

Physical size might be a problem, which brings me back to a Cube II, a Mac Pro mini.

But I've long since given up on that as anything other than a day dream.

Along with Apple not debuting a new OS, but taking the current one and spending a year spraying for bugs.
