    Who's in the market for a new iPhone this year? The rumours are that there will be 3 new entries, one of them launching later. Anybody heard any useful leaks?

    For me the only thing that would entice me would be 3 cameras or an improvement in the camera that would be a show stopper. It's such a big outlay these days that its difficult to justify and I still haven't run out of space on my 7+. Also, the accessories take months to catch up.

    I heard that they’re trying to keep the cost down to below £1,000 for the new ones because the X didn’t sell too well!!!!! :eek: £1,000???!!!

    Well, that’s what I paid for my iPhone 7+ including an extra year’s warranty.

    I am in no hurry to switch from my 7 Plus. My friend has an X and I absolutely hate that there’s no home button. Granted, I haven’t “played” on it much, but the few things I’ve tried to do (closing out apps, for one) seem sooooooo NOT user friendly and have me totally confused and frustrated. I’m sure I’d learn/get used to it (because I’d have to) if I had one, but I’m just not into this new iPhone. I also love fingerprint technology and don’t want to switch to facial recognition. I’m usually super excited about new Apple tech, but I’m not feelin’ this one at all. :barf:

    Yep... $949 for my 7 Plus. :barf: I’m still making my monthly payments.... think it’ll be paid off in November. I’m keeping this one as looooooong as I can.

    I'd like to move from my 7 to something with a dual camera, but that might be a discount/refurb 8 Plus or X, depending on how the new ones look. In other ways, I still like the 7 just fine.

    Gee, I remember when I first joined here there was a flurry of excitement at this time of the year and everybody was talking about getting the latest iPhone. Now, not only did many of the Mobitoggers not buy into last year’s model, there doesn’t seem much intention to buy into this year’s model. What, the same iPhone for 3 years?! Times are a-changing.

    That was just the usual breathless blather from "analysts" in the lead up to Apple's most recent financial report. After that report, you get:

    "And that iPhone X -- which starts at $999, or $300 more than the iPhone 8 and $200 more than the iPhone 8 Plus -- was the top-selling Apple device every week of the quarter, according to CEO Tim Cook."

    Ok, Rog, give me the lowdown. How did you manage to get the movement on your avatar? I have a gif on mine but it doesn’t do anything.

    Edit: hmm, maybe it wasn’t the right image but getting a gif as low as 500kb is tough

    I was looking for a Green serpent avatar and this one popped out, so to speak... :lmao:

    It does not move in the everyday viewing of threads and posts, only when it is clicked on for profile info... :rog:

    Matt (Smooth) may be able to provide some Techie background detail, as
    the whys and wherefores are beyond me... :D

    Well, I can’t see any reason for upgrading. Nothing startlingly different as far as I can see.

    Has the X or the 8+ got the dual camera thingy already?

    Yes, they both have dual camera thingies. :D Rog isn’t upgrading, and I think that’s an indication that there’s nothing startlingly different in the new ones.

    I'm for wait and see. There's a new/improved sensor, a new HDR mode that sounds like it may eliminate ghosting, and a bunch of software stuff around the capture and processing. It'll be better, but whether that's incrementally better or a whole lot better, we won't know until people start shooting with it. I'm really after the dual cameras (upgrading from a 7), so if the XS turns out to be only a little better, I'd be happy going for a cut-price X or 8 Plus.

    The XS does sound interesting but the price ridiculous.

    I quote 'Any relationship with Apple is very intimate. You get screwed. And apparently many like it.'

    I'm probably not the best person to comment on this but I was genuinely toying with the idea of an iphone next time I change for two reasons.
    1, the automatic updates on the operating system.
    2, the huge amount of photographic apps that are available on the app store that are not available on Google Play.
    But looking at these latest versions and the expense, it doesn't get me excited I'm afraid.

    Mine is ordered! I haven upgraded since the 6s so it is going to be a big jump for me. I can’t wait to give the camera a workout
