Anyone got a 12 yet?

Adlerhorst 03-11-2020 04:25 PM

No. But I am thinking about it quite hard. I’ve got a 10 and it is three years old now and the battery is beginning need charging more than it used to.

Cannot see that the pro is worth the £150 extra coin, assuming I need 128 gig. And I generally use 80-110 gig, so cannot get away with 64.

Replace the battery ? I’m on an 8 and haven’t upgraded the OS as I don’t want all the emoji shite and have the phone slow down so Apple force me to upgrade :)

I'm still using my 6 !!
Replaced the battery once and may need to again soon.
The iOS is 12 - I guess 14 won't run on my antiquated device

The screen is also cracked otherwise I would have.

I did just have a nice result on my iPad. I never normally buy AppleCare but did for my iPad pro. Runs out in a few days, has a couple minor dents, and a barely noticeable scratch, so wandered in to Apple on Friday and asked them to fix it, they said not worth a fix as everything is stuck together and, so they gave me ga brand new 2018 iPad Pro for £39 which should last another few years.

Thatís exactly the same position Iím in. My phone is 3 years old and starting to drop like a stone. I like you have 100+Gb full of stuff so need a big one, think Iíll go to 256GB as I canít face changing my phone every year.

They just emailed me to say have one free year of Apple TV+ as well because I have a new product.

Mentalists. It’s basically the same iPad as far as I am concerned. But as we start to keep things going for longer then I shall start to do this more often. I keep phones for three years and iPads now for three to four years so it’s basically like getting a uber mid life service half way through. Also all their stuff is stuck together in a way makes it hard to easily repair these days. So they are usually likely to replace.

Adlerhorst 03-11-2020 06:18 PM

They are now emailing me about free Apple Arcade, whatever that is.

I got a 12 pro a few days ago. The battery in my 6s Plus was on its way out, I could have replaced the battery but thought it was time for a new phone instead after five years. I went for the Pro because I tend to keep hold of my phones for quite a long time, it’s a noticeable upgrade all round.

Does anyone have a good condition 7 or 8 laying around?

Brummie Allan 05-11-2020 03:23 PM

Yet again an upgrade to iso14.1 seems to be cocking my battery life up again.

I never put 2 and 2 together, but I think you maybe right. I have noticed my battery life has taken a turn for the worse this week. I upgraded to iOS 14.1 at the weekend. :hmph:

Smoz 05-11-2020 10:49 PM

14.2 is out today, don't know if that will help with battery issues.

Isle of Wight 05-11-2020 10:51 PM

Still on 13.1 on my 8 and see no reason to change but my new 11 came today so I’m sure I be forced to upgrade just for some emoji shite that takes up more space

Got to worth a try but I guess Apple are not interested in my iPhone 7, I'm of course sure they wouldn't make my battery worse to make me upgrade.

Mine has run out middle of the afternoon with minimal use two days running and I updated 3 days ago.

Apart from added more bloody emoji and wallpaper, and fix a few bugs (no details) I don't think it will.

I'm downloading it anyway. Seems to be taking a long time... must be a big one!
