    Did they mention what modem is in the new iPhone? Is it 5G capable?

    nope. the 5G version will be next year's release—if the ban on the largest 5G infra supplier (huawei) is lifted, depending on who wins the US election :D

    Still have an i7... Waited for some decent upgrades... Like usb-c and the return of touchid on the screen. Came with low expectations.. Still nothing exciting in the pro. It's been the same every year; nothing worth the price of upgrading. I replaced my battery during the promo and my battery is back to when it was brand new.

    I'm sure I'm the opposite of everyone here and it's just IMO.

    Same storage/price tier as current iPhones. They are now up at Apple’s website. I hope the Apple trade in will also be available through our resellers.

    Checked HK specs and it seems both 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max now support dual physical nano sims. While US model still has same e-sim and nano sim config.

    Mm..I think it will still be Qualcomm...for now......because Apple recently bought Intel's 5G/modem business. It will take time before it releases its own modem for iPhones, perhaps the 5G will be just in time for "iPhone 11 S and Pro S" Sept 2020.

    Not worth upgrading this early to 5G. By late 2021, would be worth the added cost.

    oh, i meant the telco infrastructure—where huawei leads all 5G vendors.

    ban of huawei chips on phones is just smokes and mirrors. :) what the US gov want is telco infra control. :D

    I still see the notch...and a bump.

    What’s next in iPhone 12? A ledge?

    They won’t be able to do that, unless they start making again their own chips. And use their own labor. Which they can’t, because why them when they can use other people doing what they want for them. So they won’t be able to, those self-entitled, whining, rednecked masters of the human race. (How about being racist about racists?)

    In the end, China will win. They always do.
