    Tempted to order in HK, but unlike before, the HK models are different from the PH models. Local Authorized Repair Centers will not honor it for warranty, like they don't honor US units (unless the model numbers are the same as PH).

    OT: What to wear when you buy a dual-SIM iPhone in HK.

    But personally, imagine going out with just your watch and phone and wallet (with clothes on of course lol), unencumbered by any bags or what-not, knowing you have that functionality in case your watch’s battery runs low. Freedom! :)) I don’t reckon people would be needing to charge their watch off of their iPhones all that often anyway so the battery hit shouldn’t be that considerable. Besides, I find most people tend to upgrade phones every year or so.

    Mm..yes but the problem with that is you will not be able to use your iPhone while it functions as your battery bank for your Watch or Airpods. Imagine receiving a notif or a call or an SMS or an email on a busy workday. Too many incoming. Too many outgoing. It is just too inconvenient.

    Again, the simplest, no-compromise solution is a small, unobstrusive and inexpensive battery bank for your Watch.....leaving the iPhone unmolested and Watch recharging uninterrupted.

    Also, which device is more important to keep alive?

    Any speculations on when the local release will be? Last year’s local release was October 26, which is just a month after the US launch. I’m hoping for a similar scenario this year, if not earlier. Based on that, I don’t think it’s even worth it to buy grey market units at Greenhills.

    Just checked my photos since i got my watch and iphone max at the midnight launch and yes that was only a month of waiting, not bad indeed, most likely it will be the same this year or earlier, just checked apple website and after a day stocks have not slipped that much still seeing October 4 delivery, which means stocks are a lot, i remember with the iphone x (since i tried to preorder at the US), i was ready the second it was time to preorder and it slipped to two weeks already, and slipped by a month after just an hour... of course demand might be high for the iphone x, it was the first significant change in form factor in four years, and it featured face id and the infamous notch hehe

    it might be inconvenient to some but useful to others, i too am waiting for that reverse wireless charging... is it really that useful? Only time will tell... besides this is one of those features that is nifty to have but not necessarily essential but great to have in case you’ll need a quick top up, and if ur with someone or group of people with similar iphones, it will be great for that one quick top up like booking a grab or sending that one important email or text reply... this is like regular wireless charging, its convenient to some but not really essential but its good to have

    Hi guys! I preordered an iPhone 11 Pro Max in US. It will be my first time to encounter dual sim (nano sim + e-sim). I am currently using an iPhone Xs Max with dual physical sim cards. Will I be able to convert my postpaid sim card from Globe to e-sim and use it on my iPhone 11 Pro Max? Thank you!

    It could be inconvenient but it sure could also be convenient knowing that you have that functionality to use when needed. I mean imagine not having to carry separate charging cables for your watch and AirPods. Also, how often does one really get into situations like the one you described? :)

    I certainly hope this feature will be in the next next iPhone iteration, if not the next. We’re all familiar with how Apple do things. One /big/ feature at a time. :D

    Globe’s website says e-sim service is now available for existing and new postpaid accounts. You just have to swing by selected stores/service centres. :)

    Pre-ordered mine at my local Apple Store and costs around 78k PHP charged on my card, for 256gb of 11 Pro Max.

    they seem to have a lot of stocks as Sep 20 availability is still up for grabs on some Apple Stores in Melbourne.

    Apple will probably defer release of reverse-charging until people have enjoyed the added 4-5 hours on the Pro models. Otherwise, nega/naggers will reverse-charge, then bitch that "the battery life is not as advertised!"

    No shit, sherlock. If you did your job, your girlfriend wouldn't have used your iPhone to recharge her vibrator. :p

    No Apple Watch included? Really?

    And even before they can ship the 11s, there's already cases available ahead, like CASETIFY
    https___hypebeast.com_image_2019_09_casetify-apple-iphone-11-ultra-impact-case-release-3.jpg
    which not only cloaks that monstrosity in the back but enlivens the color of your iPhone 11.

    Really.
