That makes sense. Though if you also own an Apple Watch that problem is mostly solved except for Apple wallet validation.
I sold my Apple Watch before covid so I guess my timing was off (bad pun ) I don't like watches in general, just feels weird on my wrist. The functionality was nice though was super although ended up using my phone more than I thought.

Scrolling through Apple Photo I'm amazed at the improvement in the quality and clarity of my photos with each new phone and I suck at taking pictures.
I agree the camera improvements are massive... I have a X and compared the same exact photo at night taken at the same time with an 11 PRO. The difference was just absurd... I can't even fathom how good the 13 pro will be.

People say low light isnt a big deal because you don't take photos at night but reality is that this necessitates larger sensors which will improve everything.

My son was born one month after the first iPhone came out. My wife, I and our in laws all got one and were at the hospital just taking pictures. Every nurse and person there looked at us like we were so weird.

So my sons whole life is documented on my phone literally from when it was released.

The picture quality from when he was an infant to a teenager now is pretty crazy to scroll through.

Exactly! And it's not "night" photos but more "low light" that I benefit from, e.g. indoors, dusk, birthday parties, etc.. Basically, anytime something is not well lit.

I have an iPhone 8 and the camera is horrible compared to the newer iPhones. Not only that, the screen display space is small. I am looking forward to my iPhone 13 mini to arrive in a couple days.

Ordered a 13 Pro Friday and it should arrive this Friday. It’s funny as I ordered a case at the same time and it arrived today. You would have thought they would have just shipped the case with the phone.

Upgrading from a Xs - didn’t really need a new phone, but giving the old one to my father-in-law who has a 6 that is no longer supported, so more and more apps aren’t working on it.

I pay AT&T for the "privilege" of being able to upgrade every year. So, I upgrade most years. At this point, I'm pretty much just leasing my phone.....

I loved my 11Pro. Was probably the best overall iPhone I ever owned and I've owned almost every version. In particular, it had great battery life.

I'm ready to get rid of the 12Pro. The camera is nice. But the battery just suuuucks. Today, the battery was below 20% by Noon......I swear Apple does something to crash battery life right around new releases....

A 13Pro is coming Friday. Hope the bigger battery means something.

I have to say that I do enjoy having better and better cameras in each new generation of phone. The image stabilization on videos of the 12Pro is pretty impressive. Really curious to see the advancements with the larger sensors coming in the 13Pro. Too bad iPhones are only at 3x optical zoom when some Android offerings are at 10x....

Iphone Pro 156G at Costco with 10% off retail and $360 for XS trade in brings it to about $630 + taxÖmight be worth it.

Still using a 1st gen SE. Not gonna upgrade until they come out with an iPhone Nano. The mini should have been the standard model and the actual mini should have been a 4.7" screen. Dummies.

Lol I still have my 1st gen SE as a backup.
I just can't see myself being excited about new phones these days when the changes to newer models are so subtle while the old older models still get the job done.

If it weren't for the cracked screen on my Gen 1 SE I would still be using it right now.
My employer offers to furnish and pay for a mobile and service, so I took them up on the XR even when the 12 just came out. That wasn't even long ago… and now the 13 is coming out?
I can't keep up. As soon as the 13 comes out, they are already working on the 14.

I can report the new phone is very fast and all my carplay issues are fixed. 0 skipping. I bet it was a RAM issue from the X.

Picked a 13 Pro yesterday. Traded in an SE. Camera was my sole reason for upgrading. Canít believe how it handles high contrast lighting. The first one is an afternoon sun directly backlight shot. Iím very pleased with phone.

Btw, can anyone tell me why uploading sometimes changes the orientation of an image?

Can anyone who got the new iPhone 13 Pro and Promax answer the following questions:

1. Does the Magsafe feature iP Pro or ProMax work with our wireless charging trays ?

2. Does the Promax with a minimal case fit in the wireless charging tray?

I ordered a 1tb Pro, should have it in November apparently... haha. I use my phone a ton and rarely touch a computer except for when I am at work so I like to have a fairly new phone.

Upgrading from the X. Bought a new 12 pro max for 850. 13 is just another S model. The 12 was plenty fine.
