iPhone 11 / 11 Pro Event

My wife and I are in Colorado USA at the moment, so I was really looking forward to seeing the Apple event this morning before heading out to explore the countryside

Well my wife saw me looking at the repeat of the event tonight on our ‘old’ iPad 9.7 pro and as I held my two year old iPhone 8 plus 64gb said, “I suppose you’ll be selling that to get a new one, now that they’ve launched one that’s much better”. I told her how much the iPhone 11 pro 256gb would be and she just rolled her eyes at me!

I’ve taken some amazing images and 4k video with the 8 plus on our trip through Colorado. Even though I appreciate Apple tech, being a designer using Macs and Apple equipment since 1993, I just can’t get that excited about any of the news from today :(

Maybe next year...

And here I was, sitting and waiting this release to see if there would be a model to replace my 4.7" iPhone 7 :(

Always found the Xs/Xr too big, guess no joy then...

Maybe next year, when Apple invent 5g, they'll have interesting new designs.

I’m passing also. Have the XS Max with AppleCare plus and a ton of cases. Not enough of an upgrade for me. First time not upgrading since the 6 (I think?).

All the Apple rumour sites suggests this year would meet a lacklustre reply from X / XS owners, although I am sure Apple will still sell 'some' units for those on the right upgrade curve or it is funded by the employer

The 2020 / 2021 rumours read for more interesting; dual facetime / under display fingerprint, reduce the notch, maybe microled

Hmmm... I promised my partner my X for her birthday (I know, that sounds wrong if you don't pronounce 'X' as 'Ten').

As much as it sounds as though the 11 is the same as the X except for swapping the telephoto lens with an ultra-wide one, I do like the idea of the night mode.

The problem is with Apple is that they've started hit the upper curve of what's really innovative (they did that a couple of years ago) - it's taking more and more effort to create something truely innovative. If I did spring for an 11, it would last several years.

I use to upgrade every year when it was a lot more affordable but stopped when I got to iPhone 7.
Honestly, I can’t afford to drop £1000 every year for a new iPhone my priorities have changed. Agree with most comments that this wasn’t the most innovative launch event.

I would love to see a design change similar to the IPad Pro’s..maybe next year:suicide:
Well I for one will be upgrading had my iPhone 7 since launch but really struggling now with the battery.

So either Space Grey or Midnight Green 64GB that will more than enough for me.
:smashin:

I'd say the 11 Pro is more like the X. The 11 is like the Xr. Either way it is gaining an ultra-wide one since neither the Xr nor the X had those.

Never been a fan of Apple products due to their closed nature as opposed to Android Never owned a single Apple product as I found most of them to be overrated and overpriced.

I’m more impressed with the “always on” feature on Apple Watch 5.

Not enough to make me change from the Series 4, but it's a welcome addition.

Like you, I'm not a big fan of oversized phones. However the overall size of X/XS/11 Pro isn't that much bigger than the 6/7/8. I have both an iphone 8 and iphone XS and TBH its not a big deal when switching between the 2.

I have an XS Max and am more than happy with it currently, no need to change.

On a side note, I hate watching the Apple conferences for the simple fact that every time someone mentions a statistic or brags about a small thing as if it is a game changing announcement with the smug face to match, the audience feel it necessary to whoop and cheer and clap like an army of over-drugged seals. It's nauseating.

Not sure I’ll bother either... happy with my XS max. I said the same this time last year though and ended up buying so we’ll see. Will be the green max for me if I do get one though.

I honestly wish I’d not bothered upgrading last year, the X to XS just wasn’t much of a change. Definitely want the Max this year, and like you, I’m liking the look of the green

I’m still on the series 2. When it dies I’ll get another one but don’t feel the need to upgrade it at all. It’s absolutely fine.

A bit disappointing indeed as was hoping the 11 replacing the XR will be full HD.
Not a big deal but they didn’t bother...

I will probably be getting the XR to replace my 6 or wife 7 plus. Nobody saying it but price dropped seriously at £622 I believe..may even try to get it cheaper.

I got a price match for the 8 plus at 550 but feel the XR will be a better buy at new reduced price despite the extra. Feel free to comment if you think otherwise.

Thinking I'll hold fire until next year as my XS Max is still very fast and when ios13 is added to it also will seem like a new phone anyway. Would you say the camera on the 11 is now better than the one on the XS Max though? Suppose its a bit of a downgrade on the phone though. Extra battery life of the 11 Pro Max would be great though but not enough to shell out again.

Whilst I'd like the addition of ultra wide, I'd miss the telephoto lens more. Too me, the 11 camera is not better than the Xs Max camera. But if you didn't use the telephoto than it could be better for you. I'd consider the additional camera processing capabilities more as a nice to have opposed to an reason to upgrade.

I'll be updating my 6s, battery life currently measured in minutes, the base pro model should see me through the next 3-4 years.

how about putting it in your pocket? You don't get a lot of questions like; is that and iPhone Xs in your pocket, or are you happy to see me? :rotfl:

But seriously though, might have a look when they hit the stores how the 11 compares to my 7, or perhaps Xr's will be available for good prices after the release...

Think they hit the cliff some years ago with phone tech, folks are nowadays happy enough with what we have unless the bank of mum & dad is available to you.
Recent stats highlight we only use 5% of the capacity of our cell phones, ever noticed we only use the same apps (5 or 6) over and over again too. The rest are for a rainy day.
My thinking, if I paid 1k for a mobile phone, I would need a brain exam. :)

I still use the iphone 7 from 2.5 years ago, needs a new battery and good to go, 5G would be nice but like all things new it will be buggy and expensive.

Respect Apple for pushing the boundaries, they have, standing still is going backwards in the tech world.

The three camera thing looks like cyclops from Sinbad and the Golden voyage, those old enough would understand that one.

Enjoy which ever swiftkey you're pressing right now homies.

:D

Still have an iPhone SE, was going to upgrade but might wait till next year in hope they might change to USB C, was expecting it on the iPhone 11.
Would of been nice considering I have an iPad pro which has usb c, save having more chargers everywhere.
