    Anyone else get a new case today with no phone to put in it?

    Migrated from the X to the 12 Pro at the second attempt. The “hold close to clone” thing is sorcery, even if it did fail 80% through the first time saying they’d been moved too far apart even though they’d been apart the whole time.

    Sweet baby Jesus it’s fast. Apps seem to be fully up and loaded before my finger’s even fully made contact on the icon. It feels really nice to hold, definitely the most “premium” feeling phone I’ve ever felt. Much heavier than the X though, but not necessarily in a bad way.

    It's only 15g heavier, perhaps it's the non-roundedness of the frame.

    Missed delivery by UPS for my regular 12. Tracking site was all “sign up for ups mychoice to see delivery time and change where it’ll be delivered”. Delivery time was “before end of day” and you can only change to pick it up at a store after a failed attempt because you need the code that’s on the thing they hastily shoved in your mailbox. Great.

    I will, no big deal really, but new shiny and all that. Did you get a case or any of the wireless charging bits?

    Apple took my money, so my 12 Pro is imminent. Mon-Wed they say, I haven't received my shipped email.

    Now, do I hold out until Christmas?

    Possibly battery life too… though I appreciate they change it on the fly to match content.

    The screen is really something. The X screen was still OLED but the contrast on this is so intense. So far I love it.

    Picked up the 12 Pro today, Pacific Blue, and the Clear MagSafe case.

    No surprises to say it’s a lovely phone but perhaps more surprising is it feels so much nicer in the hand that the 11 Pro. The flat edges feel so much more natural than the rounded edges.

    The clear case is a different situ. After having a leather Apple case on the 11 Pro the clear case just feels so slippy in the hand, so much so that my initial thoughts are I feel more confident holding it without the case.

    I prefer caseless, I’d like to go caseless but I know I’d regret that decision once the thing had an unintended drop.

    When a phone looks as nice as this, it’s such a shame for it to be hidden by a case. Now in the hunt for a suitable case and may look at the Bare ones again.

    I think it's about time they started thinking about the case and screen protector as part of the phone itself somehow, to maintain the aesthetic of the expensive item you've bought. Phones go everywhere with you and people drop them because they're human, after all.

    It's as if you're being set up to fail. Nearly all phones are too fragile. You could even argue they're not fit for purpose, especially when manufacturers unnecessarily make the back out of glass.

    They said in June that Apple Silicon Macs would launch in 2020, so it's all but confirmed.

    After 4 years on Android and after buying a Note 20 ultra on launch I'm switching back to apple once the mini is launched.


    Why?

    I bought myself a galaxy watch active 2 recently and was blown away at how shit it was. It looked great but when it got to actually using it for my workouts it just flaked out all the time. Refused to connect to anything properly (Strava, Adidas training) apart from the phone and Spotify.

    So basically I'm now getting a iphone 12 mini to finally get a decent smart and fitness watch. Apple's Ecosystem won me over.

    Awesome, my 12 year old MacBook Pro died a year or so ago and I’d love a new laptop.

    It's not just shiny new Xbox Series X tomorrow. Will be watching this with a lot of interest to see what they've got. Then wait for Max Tech on YouTube to do all the geeky benchmarks and see howe fast FCPX is running on them. Maybe get a 10th Gen Intel 16" MBP.

    Unless you’re a frequent upgrader, buying first gen of these seems the height of silliness. One would hope cellular & touchscreen* are amongst the features in a redesign.

    I’m still running Mojave and clinging onto 32 bit apps mind, so admittedly I’m hardly the target.

    *Yeah yeah, I’ve never been fussed about touchscreen Macs either, but if iOS apps on Mac become legitimate and worthwhile, touchscreen is surely a no brainer

    Our best ever! Better than any Apple ever!

    Just got to wait for Max Tech comparison videos. I need a faster Mac so will be interesting too see how these compare. But I probably won’t get one till the next tech refresh and they’ll have something new there.

    Should bring down the prices of existing models to.

    They are easily better than recent Intel Macs, mainly because Intel themselves are fucking stuck on some legacy process and Apple also (deliberately) fucked up the cooling on recent models, making them throttle too quickly. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with these new systems if you really want to get stuck in apples computer ecosystem. For the average Mac user, they’ll browse the internet and play videos while looking shiny just fine.

    That moment when Apple destroys the casual PC market in one swoop.

    The speed and power of that chip is incredible. Far superior to most intel chips/PCs.

    Absolutely smashed it out the park.

    Prices are not unreasonable either. Not really after one till when they do the new tech refresh. 16” MBP us what I’m really after but depends. If I can do 3D modelling and work with 6-8K footage on the 13” MBP then I may get it. Hmm...

    Edit: Also...The chime is back!

    Sounds interesting but the form factor really needs a refresh. The bezels are huge compared to something like the xps13.

    Quarkxpress support by 2025?

    Initial benchmarks were impressive, do have any for final hardware?
