FaceID and Apple Pay dominate

Also not an apple eco system or fan boy. Love my iPhone12. Came from a blackberry. Tried android. Sure can do everything, root access hackers dream. Not my cup of tea.

Wouldn’t ever buy an apple pc but the statement there hasn’t been ANY changes since jobs come on
Pixel 4/4 XL had an equivalent to FaceID.

My Android phones can also be unlocked when close to my Fitbit, when on-body, etc.

$700 (plus tax, I assume) for a 3 yr old base model iPhone is as far from hot as it gets.



You're looking on average of $400 minimum on the used market, and $300 if you get lucky. (And even that figure will become the new average by the time the iPhone 13's release).


$700 will get you a used mint condition iPhone 11 with all the trimmings, and $80-$100 left over (and again, this will be much less when the new iPhone's drop and people are selling at a loss on the used market to get it). You can actually get iPhone 11 Pro's and Pro Max's at this price, too.

Personally don't care much for face ID. And I've only known 2 people out of my friends and family who use apple pay.

Think so, but can't check, I don't have a corp controlled account.

I know Samsung uses their face unlock for their Knox security system, and the Pixel 4's face unlock is just as secure as FaceID.

If you read this below, same goes for the Apple Watch 6 => Watch 7. The performance is basically the same (restamped S7 chip, but basically the same as the S6) and a 1mm increase is screen size.

Looks like Apple is losing it's mojo. No wonder that 80% of the time of Sept announcements (in the last 10 years), the stock dropped the day off. Read some of the comments in these sections. It is surely disappointing. Also the Macbook Pro/Air display issues (lawsuit going on) with the M1 chip. Wow. Unreal.

Samsung has something much better, especially now in pandemic time: fingerprint

This is what I miss the most, being able to unlock my phone as soon as I grab it.

Hasn’t the XR been $699 for the past year? Also, they dropped it from their website so I’d hope that it was going to be much cheaper soon.

Nice things about iPhones is they keep their value for several years. I bought the new iPhone 11 for $1100 and sold it last month for $780. In nearly three years it cost me $380 to use it and it was well worth it as it never let me down for my business needs. Last Android I had was the Samsung S10 which was also over $1100 when I bought it new, three years later I struggled to sell it at $300.

Good bang for the buck (if paying new MSRP for Apple). The A13 is still a beast of a processor and won't be out of date any time soon. Also easy to resell if you don't like it.

You must had it in a good case, which one did you use? I hate those large Otter ones though.

Was making a joke about the comment. My Samsung phone has both face unlock and fingerprint, and I can use both to login to various accounts. Had a feeling face ID wasn't in and macs.

Apple is just all over the place. Touch ids in iPads and macs, but not the phones in a pandemic world. And all other apple devices use usb c, except the iPhones

Does Samsung still use a front infrared camera for face recognition?

The new Apple iPad (9th generation) still uses Lightning connector

I mean, sure it’s not the first time Apple has had minimal improvements to their lineup, but I’m certain most of “tech-tober” will be all minimal increases because of COVID sending everyone to WFH (making it harder for some teams to collaborate) and also the chip shortages.

This would have been an “S” release anyway, which is always sub-par.

Personally I bought into the Apple ecosystem because most of my family had iPhones and they complained about their iCloud storage always running out, so I jumped in and got the additional storage subscription. Now I don’t have to run around making sure everyone backs-up their photos off their device all the time.

Was considering the new Apple Watch (I don’t even have one), but will likely go with FitBit since they have more features.
