well shit I might be buying a new iphone for the first time ever. would be an automatic buy except they dropped the fucking headphone jack

unfortunately from the prevalence of layout bugs w/ the SE screensize that have been creeping into apps over the last couple years it's become pretty clear apple has no interest in enforcing support for that size any longer.

but you're right, reviewing the specs it seems the only difference between the 8 and the SE2 is the cpu and the avail of a 128gb tier. I've been meaning to get another refurb SE since mine's all smashed up but that's seeming like a dumb idea as more and more apps have problems on it, esp now that it's official that display size is being dropped. maybe a refurb 8 is the right move, faster cpu with "neural engine" is meaningless to me

I’m just happy they’re maintaining a model that doesn’t use Face ID

my 7 is still just fine but I’ll probably get the SE whenever the newest iOS starts doing the artificial slowdown thing for the 7

I have a 6S with a broken home button so I have to use an onscreen home button that's available in the accessibility options. Works OK but it's super lame. Once the rest of the phone craps out I'll hold my nose on the lack of a headphone jack and snap up this new $400 model.

camera specs appear to be identical except this one has the portrait mode stuff, I assume because of the neural engine

I'm in the same boat. I had been using cheap $20-$40 ANKER bluetooth earbuds for years. At one point in time, I had three pairs of bluetooth earbuds in rotation so I would never be stuck with earbuds with dead batteries.

The price of the AirPod pros are insane but they are so much better than I expected. They are always charged up just from being in their case. And compared to what I was used to, I am blown away by the ease of use (they automatically turn on/off by just taking them in/out of the case), connections (when connected to my iphone, they automatically appear in my iPad for easy switching back and forth) and features (automatic pause when I take one out of my ear, automatic resume when putting it back in). The noise-cancelling is better than expected, too.

lol I wasn't expecting the ipad keybpoard to be $300

I'm think it's relatively easy to get refunds on apps via the app store cust svc, actually. if you bought this app ages ago however I wouldn't expect anything

the ongoing saga of trying to make an iPad function as a laptop replacement seems so misguided to me

expensive accessories and layering confounding UI cruft on top of iOS rather than making a damn MacBook with a 360 degree hinge and touchscreen

Tried this before. It’s simply not possible unless your only activities on laptop are browsing websites and sending emails.

it'll happen eventually but yeah all these half measures are never going to work out financial or functionally unless you just use documents and 'surf the web'

i went to contact the developer and their site is down

am i fucked or do you do whatever miserable thing constitutes "talking to apple" now?


have your apple id ready. lie about having contacted the developer already to the chat representative. say your son purchased it. if you get pushback ask to talk to a senior rep. you'll get a refund. there are a ton of internal tools for giving out free shit to people who complain in the 'right way' (the blame falls on apple).

you can pretty much scam any accessory using that method btw. if you claim you had a bad apple store experience you can get sent free airpods. probably that stupid 300 dollar "mAgIc KeYbOaRd" too
