    There's probably gonna be an iPhone X Plus next year which will be relatively close to the mini's screen size. So I not only don't see the mini being updated in the future, but also that it's going to be retired in 1-2 years.

    This thread will do... anyone else have issues viewing the forum on iPad? Since the site update it's been properly screwed on ours- times new roman text and boxes drifting over the posts so you can't read the bottom line. Annoying! Any easy fix suggestions would be most welcome.

    You're stuck in portable view. Switch to Mobile or Desktop at the bottom left.

    Can anyone tell me if they are due to release a new standard (not pro) iPad in the near future?

    I want to buy one but am concerned they may be about to update it again as I hear Apple are bringing out a new Pro model.

    I get the feeling there wonít be a new non-Pro iPad this time around, only 6 months since last one, especially given that the point of it isnít to be bleeding edge and rapidly evolving.

    Can you wait until the end of the month? Iím assuming theyíll be announced within 4 weeks.

    Blimey. I shudder to think these days. Iíd expect little change from £1k for a base storage cellular, eek! I see thatís currently £749. £899 this time around? o_0

    I just googled and it looks like the last one only came out in March so I guess there wonít be a refresh this year. I guess I can wait til the announcement.

    The new Pro looks really nice. With the USB-C feature itís a genuine functional upgrade from the current Pro too.

    That said, Iím going to japan in December and itís £150 less there so I think I can wait a few weeks.

    I'm also in the market for a Series 4 watch and a replacement phone for my 6S. I'm actually eyeing up cheap flights to a low tax US state for a long weekend of rampant consumerism. Fuck's sake.

    I've put in an order for the cheapest 11incher.

    Will ponder it, but wanted to secure release day delivery in case.

    Bit of a downer on the price of cellular. Not sure its worth almost £200

    Which makes it genuinely baffling that they released this years iPhones with lightning ports.

    I guess they want to push back against USB-C headphones. I can't think of another reason.

    Bought an iPad Pro tonight, to replace my 2013 MacBook Pro. Like it so far, but itís going to take some getting used to all the gestures for everything.
    Now that they run iPadOS itíll genuinely be able to replace everything I do on my laptop, as well as let me read comics and sketch on it.

    Got the keyboard folio and pencil2 with it.

    Doubt theyíll refresh the line anytime soon to prevent cannibalizing the upcoming MacBook Pro refresh.

    That being said they work pretty well in tandem with each other, especially the sidecar functionality in iPadOS.

    @Derblington DI have a 2011 MacBook Air which the SSD died on recently (got a new SSD fitted for £250 - supply and fit). I could never imagine replacing my laptop with an iPad.

    I wouldnít have thought I would either until iPadOS. Itís a game changer for making it feel more practical.

    I was waiting for a refresh too but itís looking like Q1 2020, and based on whatís been mentioned in the rumors none of the upgrades were important to me. A screen that supports HDR was the single thing that would have made the difference, but I canít see me watching too much TV on it anyway, and not enough to really care. It comes with a year of TV+, so itís nice that Iíll be able to check out the stuff there.

    Bought an Apple Watch S5 too, and my new 11 Pro Max should be here in the next couple of weeks. Itís fun new tech time! :)

    @Derblington How have you been getting on with this setup?

    I'm tempted to go down the iPad Pro + folio + pencil route this year, and like to think that I'd be able to use it for photography editing (as well as a bunch of other things).
