I’m on the iPhone upgrade program so moving from X ( £56.45pm ) to XR ( £41.45pm ) is a saving of £180 a year.

So I get the same camera lens, same processor, BIGGER screen (LCD looks as good to OLED to my old eyes) and loose telephoto and 1m depth in water.

The final benefit - that blue colour!


So a month ago I was definitely hopping on to the upgrade programme this year. I got an X and a series 3 last year.

Now however I’m keeping my X and getting a series 4. I’m really excited about this new Apple Watch. I’m thinking of going to steel instead of aluminium, too.


I am happy with my X. I have tried to stay in major update cycle and skip the “s” years.


Xs is really a funny name for an XL phone.

Can someone explain the benefit of an Oled display over Lcd?


That question is so 2017, lol.


Thanks. You’re right, I could have googled that myself …


It’s funny, but I kept the opposite schedule lol, I liked getting the S year iPhones. That way the new model had a year of working the bugs out and the S model was sort of like the finished product.


I used to do the S cycles too. All the cool new stuff was on Ses. Touch ID etc.


I got 6s and will be getting used iphonex. New ones are good but in order to afford you have to Rob a bank😁


i used to upgrade every years but I was no on the Face-iD train so I have 7s Plus
guess i have no choice now so I"m going 10X-Max I want the larger screen size and I guess ill just adopt as I did the no headphone jack :woman_shrugging:t5:


I am definitely buying the Xs. This will be an upgrade from the 7plus. My main reason for the splurge is the dual sim. I am crossing my fingers that one of my carriers will support the e-sim. I did see that Telcel here in Mexico will be selling the Xs so I am hopeful.

My second reason for the change is that the 7 plus is just too big. I welcome a phone that is a little bit smaller. I have often heard on the MPU podcasts about how the iPhone X just worked well due to the form factor. I even made a paper template to compare to my 7 plus. I’m stoked.

The bonus for me is that I have a buyer for my other phone once I upgrade.

As far as the watch goes, it is a no brainer for me as I will be upgrading from a series 0. I really want the stainless (what I have now) but will probably settle for the aluminum series 4.


I’m in the nope group. I really like iOS on my ipad, but prefer Android on my phone. If you like automation, nothing beats Tasker on Android.


Nope. Happy with my iPhone 8. Not all that interested in face ID and that notch, it still bothers me.


This is exactly what I plan to do as well. I’m also on a 6s.


Also waiting to see what the google pixel 3 is like before I make a decision.


No, cant be bothered. Call me old school but my iPhone 6 still operates perfectly well as a telephone, sends and receives messages, takes a few happy-snaps and the few apps I have work as expected.
$1000 is better off in my bank account.


Ok, I did it. X-Mas xtra Max on the way. Totally unnecessary, but I‘m looking forward. Had an 6s and it works fine but now I‘ll jump to the huge screen!


iPhone Xs ordered (and a stainless Apple Watch Series 4).


256Gb Silver XS Max. My wallet is bleeding, but wife happy (she gets the 7+). She had to give in her 7 when she left work and has been squinting at my old 5s for the past few months, eagerly awaiting this day :slight_smile:

Delivery in 2 weeks

*edit looked again online a few hours later and it had reverted to 1 week :grinning:


Hey, I get it in one week!
I went for 64 GB. Had 128 on my current one, have only 50 in use without ever intentionally „saving“ data.
