bloody Apple pricing aye. I don’t know how Apple can justify $2850 for the new iPhone 11 Pro Max 512gb when Samsung charge $1899 for the Note 10 plus 512gb. That’s a whole grand difference.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This, the apple tax on this is amazing! i think i paid 2400$ for same version last year





Balm its gone!

Does the Samsung device run iOS?

As I thought nothing of any interest for me hardware wise I could be interested in a 16" macbook pro did they mention them at all ??, also could be tempted with the apple tv+ depending on content.

 

I am not upgrading phone until 5G is supported. They really seem to be behind the 8 ball these days.

I won't be upgrading my XR or Watch 4 after seeing the releases today.

 

Most excited about Apple TV+ for $8.99 for the whole family, including 4K and Dolby Atmos.
Will be interesting to see what other content they have at launch.

I've got a 256GB X, and aren't particularly tempted.

 

I don't take that many photos, so the improved camera isn't a big deal to me. Other than that, what's the difference except speed?

Not much at all - I think anyone who's got a X shouldn't upgrade unless they REALLY want the cameras or are really heavy mobile gamers. Even then, the A11 Bionic still is no slouch, it will still breeze through everything. Still very happy with my 8 I'm using for work (and I just can't seem to let go of TouchID)!

 

I'm feeling it's more of a stopgap until the 2020 iPhones, which have been carrying a lot of heavy rumours about it being a completely new design, makes sense since the 11/11 Pro marks the end of the 3-year cycle of the current design.

I just finished watching a replay of the keynote, the only word I can describe this is Yawn.

 

iPhone pro, updated CPU, screen a little better, flash new Camera....that is it.

 

iPhone 11 just a slightly updated 10r

 

Apple Watch has a new always on screen, nothing really else.

 

Last year was an S year, this is 10x more S year.

First year in a while that I won't be buying an iPhone.  Seems pretty boring next to my Note 10+.

Priced too high for anyone wanting that premium resale value after 6 months and basically this is a filler until the redesigned 2020 iPhones come out with high refresh rate screens and 5G.

It’s a pass from me. Nice try though Apple

Hard to justify paying nearly $3,000 for a phone, more if you opt for applecare+, on a yearly basis

Not going to bother this year

Disappointed that there was no actual new innovations after seeing the invite - was kindling expecting a new accessory or something ala AirPods but no.

 

 

 

My XS has a broken mute switch so I was debating getting it fixed vs selling it as it on TradeMe and buying new. The XS has IMO the poorest camera out of the last gen (S10, P30 Pro, Pixel 3) so if they’d at least caught up that would have been nice..... just not at those prices.

This will be the first year where I’m not in a hurry to upgrade (the last time I skipped a yearly upgrade was the year the iPhone 5 released).
