Blurgh typo fixed. Thanks for being a good sport.
I’m not arguing for huge phones. The 5.8-inch screen on my iPhone is a great size for me. I would argue that bigger is too big.
I like your avatar.
Oh they’ve been retired. I had a suspicion that they caused the scratch on my iPhone XS last year, but then I scratched the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the Pixel 3 on the same day, when we were shooting this video. Rivet must be made of sapphire-coated steel.....
Okay, you’ve got me on the couch. Are there other questions?
Yes, and the economics get even trickier when you consider having to pay tax and fees on the upgrade. Even still, you’re probably better off with a payment plan than you are with a lease. Your best bet is to buy the phone with cash and then sell it at a profit to someone in France.
We’re going to keep this liveblog running as we get hands on and publish some thoughts on everything we just saw, so stay tuned!
Tim says thank you
It feels like we got.... three cool new things out of this event so far?
Apple Fifth Ave re-opening September 20. Gonna be a crowded mess, I’m sure, although Apple says it’s now the largest Apple Store in the world.
It’s entirely unclear if lower payments will come with interest rates or penalties, etc.
Some new trade-in and payment options
New Apple Watch studio lets you pair your case with your band which is new and fun
Notably absent from the iPhone 11 announcements is the device-to-device wireless charging which was a big rumor.
So are we getting a new MacBook or what?
