Amazed there hasn't been a thread on this sooner!

But yeah my 3 year old iPhone 6S and original gen Apple Watch are both ready for an upgrade, so will be seeing what's revealed later...

Might upgrade if the 2nd gen Face ID is a lot better otherwise I can’t really see it offering much more.

I though face Id was pretty damn good on the X I tried. Even adapted to me wearing glasses after a couple of hours.

I'm hoping to pickup a half price X assuming there's no killer new features (or if the new camera is amazing)

Where can you pick up a half price x?

My 7 is still going strong, but intrigued to see what the XS will offer over the X. In the past the S models have introduced something new: Siri, Touch ID, 3D Touch, wireless charging (the 8 was really a 7S). I can't really think of anything that could be classed as a new feature now that could make a difference to a regular user (VR and AR aren't that much of a game change IMO).

I'm more interested to see what the new iPads are like if they're announced today.

I'm up for renewal and currently rocking a 7+. To be fair it's been perfect and I was an android guy before this.

Will be good to see the new options fully. Especially as the X is a smaller phone than I have but with a bigger screen.

It can be a bit unreliable at times and I’d like it if it worked while the phone was on a table.

Geezer at work left early so he can go home & have a w**k over the new products when they're announced ? Sad!

Remember when people used to get points for talking about Apple on here

Or discussing Apple before the items were released


Miss those days

Not really
This thread would be 75+ pages of speculation, all started 6 months prior to the event.
 
Watched 5 mins as a friend linked it, but honestly where's the enjoyment from these things anymore?

I was guilty of tuning in for the first couple of years, but since then everything has been leaked weeks in advance so there's no surprises anyway.

Does the new iPhone do 960fps video?

I stuck it on YouTube for a couple of minutes and the bloke talking about the new watches nearly sent me to sleep.
 
Buying a watch - been teasing myself for a while but I’m going to get one I think.

Phones are a difficult one, got a 6s with horrific battery and I fancy an Xs but it’s so f**king pricey. Can I suffer the Xr and suffer calling it a tenner all the time?

Suppose it’s better than tennis

FWIW it costs like £65 to get a new battery (I think) which will revitalise your phone for another couple of years. Depends whether you want something shiny or not!

Yeah I have a really annoying dead pixel and my boy needs a phone soon so I’m trying to kill 2 birds with 1 stone (keep him happy and I get a new shiny thing)

I am going to Florida in October, how much money would I save on £999 compared to $999?
 
699 for a stainless steel watch4
999 for a Xs

6.5% sales tax takes it to ~1800 dollhairs.

1800 dollhairs is £1400 which is what I’m looking at to get an Xs and a boggo standard watch 4

May even be £100 cheaper.

Think I might wait. Any problems buying something over there for use here?

I don’t think there’s any issues, but Check the GSM banding. I think US - UK and U.K. - US are all good though.

Shame the pound isn’t better against the dollar.

Xr ticks all the boxes for me, but it’s too big.

Xs is the right size but is £150 more.

Lucky I’m not in the market for a new iPhone now, but if this is hinting at what’s to come over the next few years I may have a bit of a dilemma to overcome.

Even with it being particularly bad I can save about £2-300 overall if I just wait until the end of October.

Think it’s worth it being as I’m in florida anyway

If there’s nothing burning a hole, £2-300 pays for something else, doesn’t it?
