I really like the iPad mini with the USB-C port added. It's close enough to the regular sized screen for me to make my daily carry. With the small USB-C hubs available I can easily connect it to my office monitor & keyboard if I need to go full screen. I do wish that Mini Apple Pencil people had posted rumors of had actually appeared alongside it though.The iPad mini is more like the iPad Pro mini, in design and capabilities. That makes the $499 price tag (same as the iPad Air) a little more palatable, but I still think it should be more like $429 - $449.
The new iPad is tempting as I am using a Gen 6 iPad and Apple is offering $150 in trade. That seems ridiculous and would make the new one $179 + tax. I don’t know if it would fit the iPad G6 case I just bought, though.
More likely is finally trading in my 64 GB iPhone 8 for the 128 GB iPhone 13 Product Red. After three years, it’s about time as Mrs. Foxbat and my son both have FaceID while I’m still rocking TouchID. I had crossed my fingers for the iPhone 12s, but lucky 13 might be the ticket.
I agree. They have clearly run out of ideas and I suspect that it is too soon to add some of the stuff that Android has recently debuted.I think Apple team may be losing sight of what people would like to have.
That didn't bother you when they chased after your heart monitoring and fall detection... Apple is just renaming things to appeal to a new demographic.There is so much Apple could be doing but they seem to be spending too much on stuff that appeals to a small segment of the population.
Too many people have invested waaaay too much money in Lightning accessories for their phones (especially DACs and AV adapters). This isn't as much of a problem on the iPad.Disappointed they retained the Lightning connector on the phone. Was hoping to cut down on my cable collection.
Yet those who are critically concerned about such things are arguably a fairly small population (whether or not they should be concerned).The Apple heart ECG, for sinus rhythm vs. atrial fibrillation, and pulse has appeal to all ages.
It's been a few years since I used an Android ( Samsung and Sony ) so what is so great about the Android phone you have that iphone can't do? I'm not really a power user on the iphone but there is quite a bit of stuff that I like about the iphone / Apple infrastructure that would be lost if I went back to Android. What am I missing?
