^ But still! Aarrgghh!!!
Hehe! Just kidding, I get your point sir Roland. ^^.
^And like foldable phones and tablets (when they come about), they will all surely pass through and then we’ll be left thinking, “what the hell did i just buy again?!”
Frankly, having minimal hardware on your person like an iPhone and nothing else is liberating, rather than having all the latest and doing nothing with them other than admiring their beauty and ignoring their tremendous price differences.
Exactly. As the segment widens (Macs, iPhones and iPads) you really need to think where you fall in the segment. The past few years have been "adjustment" years for most of us since we're used to one or two products in one category.
I like the appeal of:
iPhone 8/SE + Mini + MacBook/Air
Frankly, anyone could live with the combo above
but I would very much prefer:
iPhone XS + 11" Pro (12.9" if laptop replacement).
Most of the /average/ people I know would settle with:
iPhone XS Max / XR as an all around computing device and some windows PC for work.
This is very true!!!
I think there should be a thread for persons like me about "HOW TO CONTROL YOURSELF FROM BUYING GADGETS AFTER RANTING ABOUT IT"
Honestly, i am on of those persons who rants about apple or samsung products new devices and end up buying them.
This the usual company issued equipment...
iPhone/Galaxy S + Windows device = $0.00
Mm...Apple is blanketing the entire market range for tablets/sub-tablets, from the cheapest segment to the most expensive, from the smallest to the biggest. That’s the only point of refreshing the mini and the AirPad. It is kinda’ confusing because of so many choices for consumers but Apple simply decided to take no chances. If you want a tablet, go Apple because, to borrow SM’s mantra, we’ve got it all.
I think the same will happen with the iPhone this year (struggling a bit), with a rumored 3 to 4 new iPhones (with 2 all-new models). Blanket the market.
Admission is the first step to rehabilitation.
We've all been there before. Men want the prettiest, sexiest, and the smartest—all in one neat package. Feeling pogi.
This is so true.
And since I am 10 days away from watching John Mayer in concert:
"Twice as much ain't twice as good
And won't sustain like one half could
It's wanting more
That's gonna send me to my knees"
It’s still looks like a 5 year old device ( because it is lol). I will still buy it because my 2015 iPad Mini is getting a little slower and there’s just no alternative. I just hate it when Apple opts not to innovate and just keeps on refreshing their products. It’s been 4 years for Pete’s sake, at least reduce the bezel and maybe make it a little thinner or lighter.
^My mini is now 3 years old, something of a redundancy given that i also have a Pro but nothing beats the former when you just need something to look at, read into or just enjoying watching from...
A new one is “another” redundancy, so to speak...why waste an old one for virtually the same thing (the faster and stronger assets are of no use to me)...
For current iPad owners, does having the wifi-cellular version worth it? Is it worth maintaining a separate data plan for? If you're out and you need an internet connection, you can easily do so using your iPhone's internet sharing feature.
For 2018 iPad Pro owners with cellular, are you using the ESIM? Is ESIM available on Globe and Smart?
IMO no need for cellular, get more storage instead(case it's in your choices as well).
Well, you just have to make sure you're using the same iCoud account for both devices.
And then, connect thru you iPhone's internet without going thru its settings but just going thru your iPad's Wifi settings. Sure your iPhone's hotspot will always be in the list.
Hmm. Yes if you need it. Here in Singapore we have an option with our telco providers to avail of a separate sim card and share the dataplan of your main sim card. It's called Multi Sim. You just have to pay an additional SGD7-10 of your monthly subscription fee. Using your phone's hotpsot has never been a solution for me because it drains your phone's battery.
I've been using iPads since 2011. My first was a wifi only ipad2 and then changed it to ipad cellular air2. The cellular model was nice at first but I realized that when there was always wifi at home and at work, the separate plan became redundant. I agree with getting more storage instead, if you need it. Generally, the cellular is only good if you don't have a reliable wifi connection regularly. Otherwise, internet sharing on your phone for occasional use does the job.
I've had my ipad mini for like 4 years (?) now. last year it had a screen issue so I've been on the market for one. I didn't really want any of the bigger ipads. I won't be drawing on them. Really for reading, writing notes and browsing and emergency keynote presentations that are awkward to do on a phone.
It sucks that this year's mini looks exactly the same as all other minis before it. But I will probably get one.
Thinking of buying this to replace my nearly 5 year old tablet. I’m not really tech-savvy so I’m fine with the specs and design in this. Was wondering though, does Apple slash prices for iPad mini? It doesn’t seem like a good idea buying it now when it was the same price a year ago(?). Is it better to wait for Mini 6 instead? Any news on when that might be released?
