We added another rear camera, so we had to call it Pro. 

 

Thanks Apple, I already have a phone with 3 rear cameras that's called Pro.

Damn I didn't even realize it was new iPhone announcement time. After being suckered into an XSmax last year, I'm keeping this thing until it dies. Hopefully I get a good 4-5 years out of it.

Nothing too interesting, but these are good yearly updates.

 

This stuff is't going to be that exciting anymore. Those days are over for now.

 

I personally love the always on display. Was the number one thing on my apple watch wishlist. Might actually buy one now.

 

I'll stick with my iPhone 8 for another year at least. No need to update, still performs like a champ.

Another boring year from Apple.

Eh, phones in general really aren't changing much from year to year. There's really no point in upgrading your phone yearly, unless you just like wasting money.

I am actually kind of happy that we don’t get “excited” about shit like mobile OSs anymore? All the flagship phones right now are really good, it’s just a matter of personal preference at this point. People not being compelled to spend hundreds of dollars every year on new, often disposed electronics is not a bad thing. It makes sense for Apple, Amazon, Google, and Microsoft to double down on services when hardware sales dip until we’re all Netrunners or some shit.

 

That being said, “pro” is one of the sillier marketing hooks, but it seems to have caught on so why not double down, I guess. Gimme and Apple Watch Pro, why the hell not.

Dammit. Instead of focusing on sleep and extending the battery life, we get AOD. :thumbdown:

Where you gonna put that battery? 18 hours of life with AOD is really good.

Now that Ive is gone maybe the iPhone 12 can be half a millimeter thicker to boost the battery life.

What does Atmos on a phone even mean?

I assume it is “Atmos for headphones” lime om

Xbox One and such, which as far as I know is just a fancy EQ.

I'm perfectly ok without AOD. Give me the extra battery life. Galaxy Watch gets over 3 days. Fitbit Versa gets around 5 days. 18 hours is a joke. 

 

 

But I'll still end up getting one. Lol.

To annoy the shit out of everyone around you.

Yeah for the most part, I only upgrade every year because of my lease. Every 12 months I get to upgrade, so I essentially pay about $240 a year for the latest and greatest, not a bad deal overall.

I tend to keep mine a couple years, then sell for a new one. I guess phones aren't super important to me, but I'm used to Apple.
