I think I'm going to hold on to my 6s+ longer. No Touch ID is lame, the price tag is lame.

The 6S is a great phone, tis what my wife uses.
The 7...eh, not much benefit over the 6S IMHO, and if you like headphones...nope. 7+ at least adds dual cameras, but is honking HUGE.

6s is a good phone, though the + is the one to get for battery life, at least as far as I've heard. I think if you're going with the smaller phone you're better off with the 7, if you're going with the big phone, get a 6s+.

Welp.

I'll wait until 2018 and hang on to my 6S+. Hopefully, the iPhone X will be more reasonable.

I don't know why they're muddying the waters like this. The 8 is silly, skipping 9 to go to X like Microsoft did with Windows is just retarded. Pricing the X out of the market is dumb as hell. They should have just released two variants of the X and called it a day.

Strangest pricing lineup ever:



I'm not even sure what the purpose of the iPhone 8 is. You might was well get the 6S or the 7 for much cheaper and exact same functionality.

Damn, Apple is expensive as hell. Either phone companies are getting extra creative hiding the costs or more people have money than i think.

How many people are going to get an $800 phone to text, message, call, read emails, use internet and watch youtube. Maybe take a couple of photos a week.

The main benefit of the 8 over the 6s is wireless charging and water resistance. Those are actual, useful, daily needed things.

So, from the 6S to the 8, I can see a small market.

And for those saying prices are too high, it's apple, they can charge whatever they want and still sell out.

As for me, I bailed on Apple after the 5. I use a note 5, and will get a note 8 next year after it's price drops, or maybe even a note 9 in two years time if I don't get too much of an urge to upgrade.

Invisible apple tax, They've always been stupid expensive.
Pricing for these models don't surprise me at all.

The apple watch was the only real innovation this go around, cramming cell service into the same dimensions is impressive. Acting like 4k HDR was this amazing thing for AppleTV? Not so much.

If the 8 really is the 7S like every phone refresh for them has been the last several years, then the question should be why did they skip the "s" and go with the next number up this time around?

Because nomenclature wise they could have just called the 8 the 7S and the X the 8 right?

Hopefully these are easier to fix than previous versions. The tech is incredible, would be shame to have the phone be tossed due to a faulty battery or sudden accident. Create some sort of usb input and a/c dongle adapter and this is a phone/set top box/computer/game console in one.

Something to think about; what is the legality of a law enforcement interrogator just aiming an Iphone X at their interviewee to unlock the device? If I remember, biometeric methods of securing/locking a device are not subject to the same standard as passwords.

Because nomenclature wise they could have just called the 8 the 7S and the X the 8 right?
Because they want to compete with Samsung, and Samsung is on 8 right now.
Add a bunch of features Samsung has had for ages, and then use Samsung numbering to boot. Only way to stay competitive.

I'm honestly surprised they didn't make the IphoneX compatible with the Apple Pencil, the Note series still lacks ANY competitor.

Its called iPhone X cause of the 10th anniversary. They should have kept the 7s name though. But I guess since they added the wireless charging they may have felt justified using 8... and I guess to keep up with samsung naming too.

I'm guessing I'll end up with the base model 8 when they're approved at work. No way the X model will get approved without going through 3 levels of management.

$1k for a phone that doesn't even have a 128GB of storage!
