Assuming that they are available when the Apple Store re-opens.

It is my year to upgrade, so I am in for one.

I would also like a Seies-7 watch, but not now.

No.


I hate Face ID. It's clunkier than Windows 95.

I'm loving my 12 mini, so a 13 mini would have to be not just the best mini ever made, but an extraordinary one.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

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

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.

If I didn't have a 12 already, I would have said yes.

I thought I wouldn't like it either but it has been totally flawless these past months.

I need a new one but it won't be a 13. My old 7 the ear piece speaker is so low I can no longer use it on my ear I have to put it on speakerphone. Probably be an XR or something, hopefully the price comes down. I still like my Touch ID but that would mean an SE.

Negative. Just got a new SE G2 a few months ago.

Like Sarcony, I don't want to mess with FaceID - it was one of the driving factors in my selection of the SE G2.



It is what it is.

Watch up next.

OS: New bike feature. Detects if you're riding, and if you fall.

Watch 7: Bigger screen, less border.

Case is "softer, more rounded" (no squared-off case.)

Full keyboard (I wonder how well that will work?).

IP6X certification (new) Wr50 water resistance (still).

Charges (up to) 33% faster.

8 minutes of charging good for 8 hours of sleep monitoring.

Available later this fall.

No mention of Blood sugar monitor on AppleWatch?
I can wait another year!

I'm on a iPhone 11 now, will probably hold out for next years 14 Pro!

EDIT: Starting at 128GB? That is the same as a $50 Price drop!

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke
“Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented." - Eli Weisel

"To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." - Theodore Roosevelt (1918)

"I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political right. The hard right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it." - Billy Graham 1981

"Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise" - Barry Goldwater

The 13 is a lot more impressive than I thought.

The Watch is a given.

The mini is a 99% given.

We kinda had this discussion a few posts down, Id skip the Xr.

11 is the bang for buck winner.

there are a few times I miss touch ID, but outweighs the other 95% of the its not. Its instant.

Given the amazing camera and other cool stuff, I'll be trading in my current iPhone Xs for a 13 Pro. This is going to completely replace my current micro 4/3 sensor camera. I'll probably wait until after the end of the year to make the plunge though.

They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Try unlocking your phone for CarPlay while it sits in a little charger-cubby facing straight up, or sits flat on a table, or straight out of your pocket before you lift it up to look at it.

I have an iPhone 11 from work and probably would like it just fine but for the iPhone 8 that I own which I keep in the same pocket and which -- as a matter of utility -- is actually many times faster at getting anything done because it unlocks instantly.

Count me in for a mini iPad. My current is getting quite long in the tooth, mini 4, way past its prime. But, probably my most used device since I read a lot and DL everything from the library. I use it plugged in most of the time. It'd be a huge jump to the new A15. Big jump in price, too.

Really?!

That's your takeaway?

Why do people do that.

Clearly, that wasn't implied or the intent of that segment.

But some people who can't afford a ton of high end movie gear may be able to to a much better video with the PRO 13.

Some movies, movie segments, and possibly TV show segments have been shot on iPhones.

Unfortunately, we may never know what movies or bits were shot with a Pro 13, but the Event video shows some great use cases for its use even in - yes, big name productions.

I'm sure Apple will give us one or two 'Shot on iPhone' bits from a :shudder: major movie.

Negative, Ghostrider. It was sarcasm. It is obviously not true.

They stressed the "Oscar-winning" and "Oscar-nominated" director & cinematographer that were featured using the iPhone. I would expect better than average results from them using a Kodak Instamatic (that's more sarcasm).

But if you want actual, constructive criticism:

But some people who can't afford a ton of high end movie gear may be able to to a much better video with the PRO 13.

Then feature people like that.

It's like having Picasso use your new paint brush to show what kind of results you could get at home. Which might not be a good idea, given the abstract quality of his work (more sarcasm).
