    2 months to go before Apple's annual September announcement...

    And we're starting to see rumors about NEXT year's iPhone.

    Mm....skipping this year’s model. Next year is more interesting. My focus is the rumored under the screen face id. More cameras? Not interested (casual photog 99.99% of the time) and my personal standard for photo fidelity has long been exceeded by previous gen iPhones. 5G? Depends on how 5G service, coverage and price will be in the PH. If they market it as 5G when in actuality it is just 4G.....more interested in service reliability than raw, advertised speed...it will be years....

    This and other smartphones will be the worst selling models in over 1 decade.

    I dont think there will be enough customers with the liquidity to get one.

    Mm....Apple provided a wider range of revenue guidance for the upcoming quarter to take into account the coronavirus. If this event continues, all smartphone makers will be affected.

    The 11 and 11 Pro line did very well even though there were “minimum” improvements in features. In fact, when they launched, many tech reviewers were saying to skip the 11 family and wait for this years model. People bought them anyway.

    I have no doubt that this year’s lineup will sell and sell very well.......the problem is the coronavirus. If this thing drags on and many people will have no jobs soon, the last thing people will purchase is a brand new smartphone. I expect a tempered demand.

    Honestly... The Apple sticker and the charger are the 2 most useless things inside an iPhone/iPad's box...

    I think the last Apple charger I used was the one that came with the iPad 2

    I personally do not use the iPhone charger that came in the box, however almost all the people I know who has an iPhone use them.

    this is presently not possible if you use a MacBook and an iPhone :)

    I don't get it. Why would they skip the S version? As in the iPhone 11S? They didn't skip the XS.
