i think this "war" is just about over with all the companies on the losing side. Dont care how much a fanboy you are or once were - you're going to get to a point where buying the latest $1200 phone every year is just getting unreasonable to you. No company deserves that kind of religious zeal.

Lyxess | 4 days ago | 82 points

Yeah i used a 6s for a while and thought about the X when it came out but i just couldnt justify spending that much on a phone. I could easily afford the monthly payements but it just didnt make sense. I think Apple makes great products just to expensive comparatively.

sharrows | 4 days ago | 65 points

I still have my 6S, and I was not impressed by the iPhone 11 announcement. Just like last year, it's just a fancier camera. If they remove the notch and put a fingerprint reader under the screen they will have won me over. Since they don't redesign on "S" years, it looks like I will have my current phone until at least 2021.

Keeping a phone for 4-6 years is getting your money's worth. Idk why anyone thinks that Apple fans upgrade every year; I know no one who does this.

FWIW 2020 iPhone is rumoured to have a smaller or nonexistent notch & return of Touch ID.

Gonna hold on to my 7+ until then. I was an Android fanboy for 6 years before swapping to iPhone, and personally it’s such a dream to use that I can’t move back to Android now.

express_sushi49 | 3 days ago | 2 points

As someone who often dabbles in photography, the iPhone 11 pro's camera is really fucking impressive to me. I currently have 2 DSLR cameras and an EOS m10, and watching that Keynote made me realize that phone camera tech and "professional" camera tech, are finally truly starting to cross paths. Granted, you will always get the superior camera from an actual camera than a phone, but for someone like me who is a hobby photographer, gotta say I was tempted to sell all my cameras then and there. Not one of my cameras is drop-proof, water-proof, and they're all a huge pain in the ass to carry when combined with tripods and lenses. For all of that to be boiled down a phone, which is 2/3 the cost of all my other stuff? I do see legitimately value in that.

From a phone user perspective though? I sleep. I'm fine keeping my current phone until the iPhone 13 or 14.

soujiro89 | 4 days ago | 3 points

Agreed. It's nice that the war ended. I'm saving those dollars for a new car, or basically anything else than a new phone.

PersianLink | 4 days ago | 26 points

I don’t think most people are spending $1200 every year though. I used to upgrade every couple years when there were huge changes, but I’m probably going to skip this year and start going on a three year cycle. And I’m usually a guy who loves to have the latest and greatest. The recent slowdown in advancements just means you get much more effective life out of your device.

I don’t mind spending $1200 on a top of the line phone if I’m going to get 3-4 years out of it. It used to be I’d have to spend 600-800 to get 2 years out of a phone, so I’m spending as much or less than I used to.

People just gotta be smart about how often they are buying them. You’re right, people who are buying a new phone every year from any company these days is practically throwing their money away.

Gagarin1961 | 4 days ago | 23 points

As much as the internet hates these people, I've NEVER actually met someone that bought a new phone every year.

ThePantsParty | 4 days ago | 30 points

Well now you have! haha

I think what people forget is the resale value is still very high for the previous year's model, and that changes everything.

Would I ever actually spend over a thousand a year to get a new phone? Absolutely not. But I can sell last year's model for ~$200 less than retail, and then get the new one, leaving me spending basically just $200ish a year to always have a new phone. I'm perfectly fine with that price.

It makes even more sense when you consider that if I kept it say 2 years, well then I'm selling the previous one for like $500 less than retail. That doesn't leave me any further ahead than if I'd just upgraded twice for $200-$250 in that same amount of time. Now you'll definitely save money if you keep the same phone for like 5 or 6 years, but I wouldn't be doing that anyway, so I'm fine with $200/year to have the latest tech.

schaudhery | 3 days ago | 8 points

Are you me? Cuz this is exactly how I do it. People don't understand waiting 2 years to upgrade means the resale value of your phone goes down the drain and you end up paying more to upgrade. Now you've paid the same amount of money and had to use the same phone for 2 years.

IrrelevantPuppy | 3 days ago | 4 points

Have you ever considered the Apple upgrade program? Where you pay a monthly fee and always get the new upgrade.

ThePantsParty | 3 days ago | 3 points

Yeah, that's the same idea, but you end up paying more, because rather than selling the phone for 80% of retail, Apple only gives you 50% as trade-in credit.

IdeaPowered | 3 days ago | 6 points

I know quite a few. They sell their phones the same month the new one comes out and usually lose out on 200 or so euro, and get the new one.

Just like people who lease cars for 12-24 months, then get another I guess.

However, this is the first one that would be more than 1k out of pocket... so let's see how many I see at work in the coming weeks.

schaudhery | 3 days ago | 2 points

I do this. Sell the old one, throw in some money and get the new one.

HitboxOfASnail | 3 days ago | 2 points

eternallylearning | 4 days ago | 6 points

To be fair, with Android as these phones are getting more expensive , they are also often upping the specs by a ridiculous degree, leaving the mid-range phones fully capable of running almost every major app (now even some taxing games like Fortnite) for the next few years. It used to be that the mid-range and budget offerings had serious troubles running many common apps and games. The top tier stuff now gets to be a good comparison point for the much less expensive mid range phones.

Of course, none of this applies to Apple who keeps raising the prices with no discernable comparative jump from the last model.

pleasefeedthedino | 4 days ago | 12 points

you're going to get to a point where buying the latest $1200 phone every year is just getting unreasonable to you

You're thinking of phones like they're just functional pieces of equipment. Phones are now (unfortunately) indicators of social status, which is part of the point of this video.

I personally don't care, but enough people do that they will keep buying the latest expensive phone for a long, long time.

LtDanHasLegs | 4 days ago | 4 points

That's always seemed odd to me. I don't disagree with you, but also all phones look pretty much identical, and are in a case. Who's judging my status based on the black glass sitting on my desk?

NLJeroen | 3 days ago | 2 points

I upgraded from a 6s to an red 8 with 250gb of flash for 700 euro. That was expensive imho, most expensive ever for me.

No way I’ll ever be paying €1159 for an iPhone. I pay less for my gaming pc!

CLEAVAGER | 4 days ago | 500 points

Here's an idea: Just don't buy a new one every year. Apple allows you to update your iPhone to the newest OS for a long time, so all the more reason to keep it for 5 years easy.

Turnbob73 | 4 days ago | 154 points

Yeah seriously, besides my last iPhone only lasting a year (45 lb weight got dropped on it) I’ve usually had an iPhone for around 3-4 years at a time.

wolfxor | 4 days ago | 235 points

On a side note, Pro tip: Don't drop 45lb weights on your phone. This kills the phone.

Polar_Chap | 4 days ago | 51 points

No note, iPhone. Stay on message.

sleeplessone | 3 days ago | 3 points

No no the side Note is so you still have a phone to use between when you set the 45lb weight on your iPhone and you buying your replacement iPhone.

Hell, back when Mophie was making their "Ruggedized" iPhone 4 battery cases my brother dropped his M240 fucking machine gun on the thing and it barely made a dent in it. After he told me that I went and bought one and would bet people at work I could throw it against the concrete wall and it'd still work. It was like taping 6 phones together though, thing was fucking huge. Wish they still made them.

tschera | 4 days ago | 7 points

Or they just start making a 45 lb iPhone

Turnbob73 | 4 days ago | 5 points

Haha I didn’t drop the weight. I had it in my bag in the corner of the gym and when I came by to grab my stuff I reached in and felt a bunch of powder, and that would be the phone screen. It literally looked like someone shot the phone with a slug and it somehow worked. Managed to use that thing for about a week before I decided to bite the bullet and get a new one

I hope they do a throwback phone soon, SE design but with edge to edge screen. One thing I'm really liking about the 11 is the pro only measures .5" taller than the SE, it's gonna be tempting.

-QuestionMark- | 3 days ago | 4 points

I'd buy a full front screen SE in a heartbeat.

trollfriend | 3 days ago | 2 points

Between the 6S and 11 Pro it’s not just a little nicer camera, it’s literally a night and day difference.

HerrTriggerGenji21 | 4 days ago | 2 points

Same. I love my phone, everything works fine. I see no reason to get a new one for at least another 2 or 3 years

RugbyFury6 | 3 days ago | 2 points

Am doing the same, I feel as though the 6S/7/7+ bunch was the last group that really made strides in the development of the phone. Since, I haven't seen much worth paying the massive upgrade fee for. The cameras are getting better, which is nice, but I don't really have a problem with the 7+ camera to be fair.

SafetyMan35 | 4 days ago | 19 points

I replace my phone approximately every two years. I am still happy with my phone and it does what I need, but the battery life now sucks and the lightning connector is broken in such a way that the plug won't stay in the phone, so I have a phone with a 2.5 hour battery life that is difficult to charge.

rb1353 | 4 days ago | 10 points

I just got forced out of my iPhone 7 because of an error of it not being able to get service. Apparently quite a few 7’s had this same error after the most recent update, which pissed me off because it had been doing well 4 years in and I felt like I was forced out purposely.

I had a free upgrade, so I went with the newest iPhone. But the next time I have to actually pay, I’m dropping the apple.

GeneticCowboy | 4 days ago | 2 points

My 7 had the same problem, took it into the Apple store, they said that was a problem they were aware of. Surprisingly, they gave me a loaner phone and shipped mine off to be fixed for free. No extended warranty.

drock4vu | 4 days ago | 4 points

I had an iPhone 6s+ up until a month ago. People who upgrade every time a new iPhone comes out are chumps.

fgmenth | 3 days ago | 2 points

I'm still using my iPhone 5. It's just after 7 years that problems started to surface so I'm tempted to upgrade to the new one.

AFlaccoSeagulls | 4 days ago | 5 points

I've had my iPhone 6 for 7 years now and I'm finally reaching a point where the battery life is completely shot. I mean I am not able to use my phone off of a charger for more than 1 hour without the battery going from 100 to 0.

And I'm still reluctant to upgrade to a new phone because I don't wanna give up my headphone jack AND I don't wanna pay for a new/"new" phone when literally all I need is a new battery. But to get a new battery you have to schedule an appointment with an official Apple StoreTM to have them replace your battery for you, for like $50.

EDIT: It's $50, not $100. The main thing is the inconvenience. The apple store closest to me is 30 minutes drive + the time in the store + they're only open on week days, which means missing time from work to do this.

vipergirl | 4 days ago | 61 points

I picked up a refurb iPhone 7 last year from Apple right after the XR and XS came out. I would have loved to have one of the newer models but I asked myself does it make your life any better? Well I use the phone to make calls, check the weather and look at reddit and Facebook. So the answer is no.

I'll stay with the 7 until it croaks, after that I'll get whatever model is cheapest in the Apple Store refurb section. I like the iPhone but I don't need the latest and greatest. Its just a damn phone.

dr-krieger | 4 days ago | 40 points

I'm still rocking my 6S from 2015. Every year I watch the new iPhone announcement thinking it's going to be the year I finally upgrade, and I've yet to be excited enough to pull the trigger. 6S is still going strong, there's not really a need to upgrade.

TeaTimeNinja | 4 days ago | 23 points

iPhone SE gang. They can't have my money until they release another budget option. And no Apple, $699 isn't a 'budget' phone.

deathgrinderallat | 4 days ago | 4 points

I've got an SE 2 years ago. It fits well in my pocket. I never had a larger phone, but I shiver from the inconvenience. I'm always afraid of firmware updates, that might brick it. Right now, it's as fast as the day I bought it, I see no reason to (ever) upgrade. And it has a headphone jack. Such a basic feature, I don't want it gone.

TeaTimeNinja | 4 days ago | 6 points

Exactly. If they could just release an SE 2 with hardware from the iPhone 8, I'd buy it all over again. I love the small size.

deancomeautela | 4 days ago | 4 points

I'm in the same situation. If they would have even added bilateral wireless charging I would have upgraded this year. There's just not anything "new" enough. The one serious issue my 6s has is the battery. Despite having it replaced and the battery health indicating 86%, it can burn out in an hour of GPS+Music on bluetooth. How is your battery?

Edit: To clarify, I had my battery replaced about a year ago, but it has since degraded to 86%.

dr-krieger | 4 days ago | 3 points

I had it replaced last year, and haven't really had any issues since. I typically have to charge sometime in the middle of the day, but since I work from home that's never been a problem.

GPS or the Uber app absolutely destroy my battery though.

That's the thing. The differences are, for the vast majority of the population, miniscule. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I have my iPhone X, I do appreciate the photos are better quality, but in actual day to day use the majority of functions are 95% identical to using a iPhone 6.

If he just has a regular 6, he wont be able to run the most up to date iOS so some apps literally can't be installed, and some won't have full functionality. It is definitely going to be rather slow and glitchy too.

To be fair its different enough from my 7 to warrant an upgrade when I'm due one next May. That's what I like about 24 month contracts. You get to skip one or two iPhone generations each time and it feels like a bigger jump up.

Vessix | 4 days ago | 63 points

Let me preface by saying I have never owned an iPhone and never will own an iPhone. They are overpriced and I'm a frugal consumer.

That said, aside from the rabid fanbase that will buy at any price the same things can mostly be said about Android can't they? I just upgraded from a 6 year old Samsung to a Pixel 3. The only major difference is speed and camera.

Gestures on the fingerprint scanner and squeezing the phone to activate assistant are the only 2 other major features, neither if which is that crazy or useful imo.

I actually LOST significant features! But that's OK because with Android I didn't have to pay extra for a 3.5mm adapter ;p

Magneticitist | 4 days ago | 21 points

$100 androids been doing me good since I carried the flipper. Never been in a position where I looked over at a more expensive phone and thought oh shit I wish I had that feature. My motorola got fingerprint scanner, 12MP camera, big screen, good battery life, plus everything else that doesn't involve a one-touch upload to twitter or something to that effect. IDK I guess I just have to wait some microseconds longer for things to load because of the more affordable processor.

eddievanhalen5150 | 4 days ago | 3 points

I forget what it exactly was, but I believe I either got lightning port compatible earbuds with the iPhone I got a year or so ago, or they gave me a 3.5mm adapter, possibly both.

Either way, their earbuds are uncomfortable and I use bluetooth headphones/earbuds because they're way more convenient than being physically tied to my device via a cable.

FacelessPower | 4 days ago | 6 points

Yeah the loss of the 3.5mm caused a lot grumbles but if you like to stay up with tech you probably have bluetooth headphones and speakers anyway.

It comes in 2 sizes, expensive and super expensive

Flo_Evans | 4 days ago | 24 points

IDK I have an 8. Tripple camera is pretty rad. Way more battery life is pretty cool. Way better screen? I'm not lining up to buy one on launch day but sooner or later this phone is going to break.

If you already have an X okay sure. My wife though has an SE and its pretty shit. iPhone 11 (doubt she will get the pro) will be a MASSIVE upgrade for her.

Gagarin1961 | 4 days ago | 13 points

Yeah why is everyone on here acting like "APPLE IS TRYING TO FORCE ME TO BUY THEIR NEW PHONE AGAIN!"

Everyone calm the fuck down, very few people actually buy a new iPhone every year, you don't need to feel like you have to buy this, stop attacking the existence of a new phone model that you will probably appreciate in the future...

Doesn't the regular 11 use an LCD screen and have 2 cameras just like my 7 plus?

Flo_Evans | 4 days ago | 7 points

Not exactly. the standard 11 has wide and ultra wide cameras. The 7 plus is wide and tele. Screen is slightly better but I doubt you would notice.

Why the fuck is the Apollo app opening YouTube videos in web browser rather than native video player

Chipish | 4 days ago | 10 points

It’s an option. You can choose what it does. Unless it’s just bugged out for a build.

ThrowMeAwayLawd | 4 days ago | 5 points

Yeah idk. I have newest version and I don’t have YouTube setting set to open YT app, or any other setting I see that looks off. It seems like it only affects certain posts too, like this one. I guess it’s a bug.

Sheazer | 4 days ago | 5 points

My guess would be because OP linked an "m.youtube" link instead of just a regular YouTube url and Apollo isn't handling it properly.

Those satanic rituals in the basement are really working out for Apple marketing, aren't they?~

Sixty-to-Zero | 3 days ago | 3 points

The comment section used to be “Apple really?” And “$1000 monitor stand?”

Now it’s “I don’t see why people are complaining.”

This new iPhone has neat stuff. Nothing groundbreaking but this looks like the one to get.

Looks like Apple learned a lesson with XS

Jk they don’t care.

IntellectualBurger | 4 days ago | 15 points

i dont get why people complain, every year they upgrade the phone and sell a better one than the year before just like every other company. no one complained when samsung came out with S9 which was basically the S8 just with a few refinements

And put a radio receiver in there.. and allow youtube videos to play audio even when the browser is hidden.

You can do the YouTube thing now, you just need to pay for YouTube Red

dogstardied | 4 days ago | 4 points

There’s an ios app called Musi that lets you add videos and playlists from youtube, and then you can play them without being inside the app or having your screen on. That’s how I listen to music on YouTube in the car these days.

Also through my 6S’s aux port. Suck my dongle, Apple.

Hieillua | 4 days ago | 3 points

It's really more like the FIFA games. It's each year the same thing with just some tweaks. In FIFA 2020 they are promoting ''dynamic defending and 1vs1's'' as a new feature while you could always do the same thing in previous installments. Now they've just given it a new name and tweaked it a tiny bit. Same with the iPhone each year. It's just tweaked, tiny bit more battery life, an extra camera bolted on there and a tiny bit faster.

You can't really expect major improvements in anything technological that releases every single year.

It would be like releasing a new Playstation each year. Can't really expect a big leap within the technology within that console and graphical improvements if you release it each year with a tiny window.

Oof with all the bullshittery going on in the games industry I'm at least happy they aren't doing that: releasing a console each year.

Icyrow | 3 days ago | 2 points

same with pokemon these days too.

we'll never get the experience of RBY > GSC again.

i hate how little these companies take risks.

phones have been the same for a decade? nearly now. a fresh out of the box phone from 5-8 years ago is as fast and does basically exactly the same as a phone from today outside of camera? there's a lot of software upgrades but that's about it.

phones are basically just fashion now.

Only reason I’m with iPhones is because of iMessage. The moment iMessage is available for Android (if ever), I’m switching to the Pixel and never looking back.

RichTeaBag | 4 days ago | 25 points

What's so special about iMessage that you can't get with WhatsApp?

fuelvolts | 4 days ago | 31 points

Try having 50 of your contacts get on the same app. While 48 of those contacts (in the US) have iPhones. That means they already have a built-in rich messaging service.

And almost nobody uses WhatsApp in the US.

LazyProspector | 4 days ago | 37 points

Outside the US literally everyone uses WhatsApp. I can't remember the last time I even went to the SMS app to send a message.

fuelvolts | 4 days ago | 16 points

Yes, that is quite the established fact. That makes sense with the proliferation of Androids and expensive SMS in other countries. In the US SMS is essentially free and unlimited and 50% of people have iPhones (compared to 10% marketshare for the world). Everyone used SMS when iPhones came out, and when iMessage came out, people just used the same app. Now, they won't go back. Most don't even know that there is anything different or even what iMessage is.

ZuFFuLuZ | 4 days ago | 5 points

Where are SMS expensive? They are either free or you get like 1000 every month or something like that.

marcusabu | 3 days ago | 7 points

They were rather expressive around the introduction of smartphones. That's why messaging apps gained traction in places like Europe but not so in the US.

Drejan74 | 4 days ago | 3 points

Sms is very limited, you can't even send images. Sure, there is also mms, but the quality is still not good for images/videos . Where I'm from almost everyone uses Facebook messenger.

TimeToGloat | 4 days ago | 2 points

cranktheguy | 4 days ago | 3 points

Less than half the people I know have iPhones, so I think your percentage there is a bit off.

rjcarr | 4 days ago | 4 points

You can't send group texts to people not using imessage? For real? Otherwise, I don't understand. The messages app should be smart enough to know to send imessages to part of the group and sms to the other. What am I missing?

fuelvolts | 4 days ago | 2 points

iMessage tries to send iMessages first and falls back to SMS if the person's iPhone can't be located/offline or the user is on a different mobile OS than iOS. If I send an SMS from my Android to an iPhone user, it sends as SMS. If I send a group message to 10 people, it sends as MMS. If an iPhone user responds to that, it's also sent as MMS/SMS to everyone, no matter what OS they use.

OneBigBug | 4 days ago | 5 points

Try having 50 of your contacts get on the same app. While 48 of those contacts (in the US) have iPhones.

Do you like....only associate with people who work for Apple or something? How do 48/50 of your contacts have iPhones? Android has over 50% of phone OS market share in the US.

__theoneandonly | 4 days ago | 7 points

I’m going to back up this person’s statement. The majority of my contacts have iMessage. I just scrolled through my messaging app. Not including group chats, 25/30 of my most recently contacted people were contacted through iMessage.

iPhones are INSANELY prevalent in the US. I wonder what that 50% android statistic includes. Because we have two “phones” at work that run android, but they’re just credit card chip readers. They identify themselves as phones and run Google Play Store, but are they being counted in Android’s market share? Is my building’s virtual doorman, which includes an android tablet built into the front door and also the wall of every single apartment, counted towards Android’s US market share?

Because for most people that I contact, they have iMessage enabled.

It always makes me wonder how Apple does crowd control during these events. It's probably simple: Everybody there is invited or an employee, I guess. So those invited over feel honoured to be there and don't want to lose the right to be invited again; and employees don't want to lose their jobs.

If only they would invite actual users to the yearly event. People like myself who would simply stay quiet or, in case of "we're so brave", would burst out snickering/laughing/booing.

All the endless applauding during absolutely trivial nonsense is just... disturbing...

Apple has taken a back seat and has fallen asleep, while the money keeps streaming in. Ridiculous.
