GSGRUNT Sep 10, 2019 08:01 PM

anything worth knowing?

Munkus Sep 10, 2019 08:12 PM

Incremental upgrades to existing products.
Apple TV+ and Apple Arcade launches.

A big fat huge MEH overall.

It looks to me it slightly more than an Incremental upgrade. I'm impressed with the presentation. It almost makes me want to buy an Apple product.:bleh:

I didn't even know there was an event, that's how much I cared.

Razeus didn't even care. He used to be a die-hard Apple fanatic.
Apple's iPhone novelty is wearing off.

I don't think he's still around here :bleh:

Looks like he's complaining about the 11 Max Pro pricing on Reddit :lol:

Complaining about pricing is the last thing any apple buying person should do.....

lol..

Its apple, the apple tax is real!

and yeah Apples a huge MEH, but it does price down the older products hopefully. I don't need a new phone but would be nice to get an iPhone 8 to replace my 6S (don't care about FaceID, I quite like the Touch ID...dunno why they got rid of it in the newer products). And even with just a few games and pictures taken, my 32gb is not enough space lol.

logical Sep 11, 2019 10:09 AM

I paid attention, its definitely an incremental upgrade. I actually hate how the cameras are arranged on the phone... but all the leaks were going months ago so we knew what it was going to look like. Apple is once again playing catch up(android/samsung triple camera setup, google pixel dark light photos) Other than the cameras there is nothing exciting about this phone.

Samsung does the triple camera setup better



This is just hideous and un-Apple like in design.



Arcade is interesting if they can keep getting exclusive games. Premium games with no ads and no in app purchases might be worth it. There are a few games releasing on it that I want to play(cards may fall, overland) so I may give it a go for the first month.

I dont give a **** about apple tv, the new low end ipad, or the new watch. I have no use for any of those.

Unfortunately, I will be feeding the monster again. The wife is still on an iPhone 7 so shes getting one cause of a free upgrade and I will get one just to get one cause it cost me nothing. iPhone 11 pros.

sorry yes just wireless android auto

there is a workaround that works on note 9 & 10 for some they say but no dice for me on my note 8 I tried it
and i'm not buying a 10 and have it not work for me

wireless carplay works on all newer iPhones, 5 and above I think
and now that you can get google maps in carplay

problem with iPhone is no card slot so the need to buy a 256gb for my 100gb of music I use in the work truck

Kain Sep 11, 2019 04:30 PM

I'm still on an iPhone 6s. Wondering if I should upgrade to the iPhone 11 Pro Max or wait for the 2020 iPhones (which are rumored to have significant changes).

I figured it was wireless auto. You may have already seen this, and may be the work around you speak of, but it works (or at least on my Galaxy S10+)

However, just so you are aware, this is not a android or Samsung issue, this is strictly ALL on Google, they are the ones who are holding up the wireless auto on all phone except their phones. Some people have found hacks etc to make it work on other phones, but google has only officially supported it on their phones.

I have never used google play.. use to use spotify, but now I use apple music on my S10+, as it 's free with my Unlimited plan thru Verizon... LOL

google play is getting better but I use double twist and amazon music more

but I don't stream music I have a 100+gb of flac music on a sd card in my note 8

I have a 256gb ipad mini wifi cellular and it would do most of carplay but apple won't let it :mad: just works as a ipod:bleh:

……..
these are not much different than 10 so apple may have low sales and drop prices some in a month or two

if so I may grab a non pro 256gb

KAC Sep 11, 2019 10:34 PM

Guess I am not upgrading my phone. The cameras look ridiculous lol.

The camera works fine. Are you going to stare at the back of the phone all day?:bleh:

bill dennison Sep 12, 2019 01:54 AM

wonder how thick the case back has to be to keep those camera lens from being dragged over every surface you set your phone on
or some sand on a outdoor table

Methinks you're dreaming :lol:

Athena Sep 12, 2019 01:34 PM

All the new Apple phones have the A13 chip in them even the cheap 700 dollar job. That is pretty amazing. Also the cheap one has the new LTE chipset for super fast data performance. If you are a Apple person it is good news as the cheap 700 dollar 11 will out perform the old 1400 top shelf iPhone 10.

As I am not a Apple guy after giving them one last try with the 8 plus and dumping it for a Samsung 10 and being happy ever since I could care less. But I am sure there are many happy Jobettes lining up for new phones as I type.

I have a XS MAX 512GB at the moment, but we'll see what I get when my contract is due for upgrading. (end of 2020)

For me the main thing is how Carplay evolves (which it is in IOS 13) and Android Auto. Carplay is pretty useful for me so whatever is best by then I'll get it.
