Kinda asking that. I have a 256 that’s barely half full and I have a lot of poo poo on my phone.

If 84 month financing can work for brodozers and dealership-modded lifted rear end chudtrucks it’ll work for a phone.

I have months of music and even I only just went over 128 myself. 512 on a phone is nuts.

Yeah didn’t they mention a while back using Hey Siri for your airpods?

Anyway coming from a 7, and not wanting to blow a solid grand, that XR is looking mighty fine. I need to see how this haptic touch stuff they mentioned does as a 3D Touch replacement though.

Apple watch for $550 and adding $10/mo for service.

I got a 256GB 7+ and ended up not using most of it. I got that model to fill it up with music, but then shortly after I got it I started using Spotify, so I didn't need to fill up my storage with music anymore. And I've been on the 50GB iCloud plan for probably a couple years now, so all my photos are covered by that. Basically with everything in the cloud, I no longer needed to have much local storage on my phone.

My X that I have now has 128GB and I think I'm using like <20GB of that lmao

So the xr is the only phone that doesn’t have a buy unlocked feature. Looking at prices it’s also cheaper to get a 128 gig of that $800 than it is to get an iPhone 8+ 128 unlocked 😂

Getting a 64GB Max. I sprung for the 256 last time and never once used it. Cloud life forever.

I do respect that there are a small number of people for whom 512GB is, for whatever reason, something that makes sense. Like, maybe you take tons of videos and you want to have every video you ever took on your phone 100% of the time, I guess.

I've had a X 256GB since release date and looking at usage I've only use 35GB of space. So, I should probably save a bit and just go with the 64GB one this time around, Cloud life!

Story time: Apple attempted to devise their own wireless standard to ensure they didn't use the same hardware as qi. They attempted this and interviewed a expert in the field for a position for that project. That man that asked "Why not just use the standard? It's already mature" during the interview process.

That man did not get hired. Apple wouldn't introduce wireless support for 2 more years.

I expected that they were attempting to make the pad "for apple devices only" and failed.

I doubt it. The bigger problem is making it work for multiple simultaneous devices.

First hands on S4 photos and that screen is nice.

What a huge wet fart, and I am typically a pretty unapologetic fanboy. Welp I guess I will go down to the apple store and buy whatever iPhone SE they have in stock to replace my busted one because no way in hell am I going back to the 6 form factor and :lol: at the cost of the "plebeian" XR. I don't need a phone that does everything my 5K iMac does you dummies!

Agreed. I'd rather get a new laptop than replace my 8.

Jesus, dude. If you must upgrade in less than three years, go buy a used X since they have no MSRP guidance now that they’re discontinued and that might provide values.

Look, a macrumors poster! The screen on the xR will in all likelihood be fine if not awesome, since most people don’t know what the hell they are talking about when it comes to screen quality, viewing distance and pixels online.

I’ll double check when reviews come out, but I’m considering the xr a big upgrade as a phone coming from a 6s +
