We'll probably hand in our 6s pair for the 5G radio upgrade. Maybe not at the release prices though...

Nice. Trade in your old iPhone while it still has a bit of value. The line is currently at iPhone 6.

Been trying to figure out if the LIDAR on the new iPad makes any difference in photos. Can't tell yet .

it should be pretty easy to see the difference compared to an iP6 :-)

Sticking with my OG SE unless they make a small one. Ive got 2. My daily driver works fine... and if it ever dies.. switch to the other.

iOS 14 has made it faster as well.

If you want Lidar you are going to need to spring for an iPhone 12 Pro since the regular 12 won't have it. Big bucks!

No Lidar for me, nor 5G, even if there were a tower on every corner.

Not that I'll avoid 5G, but it doesn't move the Upgrade needle for me.

Just waiting to see what the Baby 12 is like.




Two for two, I'm good now.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I’d be happy with the new SE. Same form factor as my 6s but much newer tech. Truth is, though, the 6s continues to serve my needs more than ably.



It is what it is.

Yep. Since I bought the 6s five years ago, battery replacement has been the only upgrade I really needed.

My 8 replaced my 5 which replace a 3GS. I am not what one would call an early adopter.

You folks who are happy with the 6s or old SE must not take too many photos. The newer non-SE phones (Xs, 11, 11 Pro etc) have vastly better cameras. I didn't realize how good they were until my employer bought me a new Xs to replace my old 6s. Also, even though the Xs screen is quite a bit bigger, the actual body of the Xs is almost exactly the same size as the 6s due to the edge-to-edge nature of the new screens.
