So I am in the upgrade program and can upgrade. My current phone has shattered back glass. Do I need to get that fixed before I do my trade in?
back glass means the whole phone gets replaced, trade in won't work with that broken
I don't remember who it was (maybe pearl ) but someone mentioned their older MacBook being really slow and doing something to it using Youtube videos and now it runs well again. Who was that and would they be willing to walk me through it like a 5 yr old? What product do I need to buy and what video do I need to watch to do it?
I put in a SSD via YouTube tutorial and it sped mine up dramatically.
Sorry, wasn’t me
The trade in is when you have gone the full two years and paid it off
Mid 2012 MBP or earlier - upgrade to ssid and max out ram. Easy enough to google comparability with your model and follow install videos (very easy)
CoastalOrange it will depend on your model for what kind of drive. For mine I bought:
SanDisk Ultra 3D NAND 500GB Internal SSD - SATA III 6 Gb/s, 2.5"/7mm, Up to 560 MB/s - SDSSDH3-500G-G25
And this cable - I think there are cheaper alternatives without a program on amazon. I was in the store and wanted to get it done that day.
I already had this screwdriver kit:
Syntus 63 in 1 Precision Screwdriver Set with 57 Bit Magnetic Screwdriver Kit Electronics Repair Tool Kit for iPhone, Tablet, Macbook, Xbox, Cellphone, PC, Game Console, Black
From there I followed a few videos to clone the drive with the Mac utility, swap, and install.
Appreciate all the info. I feel like I need to insert the Good Burger clip where I can say that I know some of those words. I will give it a go and pray that I don't completely fuck it up.
From what I saw it would be really hard to ruin it. Good luck.
I have an older iMac. Would love to try this too? Any recommended internal ssd that would fit?
What’s the actual model?
iMac (27-inch, Mid 2010)
Rarely use it but it is a nice display. I have the EyeTV software to use it as a TV as well. Store all my photos and if I can upgrade to a 2TB internal SSD I would if it would speed it up.
Man, that one looks quite a bit more involved than a laptop, but doable.
I think I looked into this a few years ago and that’s what scared me. I’m sure I can do it but it looks intensive.
I will be upgrading my iPhone XS Max to the iPhone 11 Pro Max on 9/13 at 3am and no further fucks could be given
The watch face always on is neat I guess, but get me more than a day on battery life please.
I don't need always on. What's wrong with the face turning on once you lift/flip your wrist? I'd rather have extra battery life than the time ALWAYS displayed.
Their video was of people doing a push-up or holding something still where they’d prefer to not move their arm
I glance at my "regular" watch all of the time without moving my arm much so if you want it to be like a regular watch it's a good option to have.
I could also just be used to the apple watch function, and that's why it's not an issue for me.
Wonder if it'll be an option to turn it off.
Do I need to get the front screen replaced if it is cracked for trade in?
through apple, yes
can't speak to if you are trading it in to a carrier
Don’t see why they can’t just program the specific app to run the screen during an entire work out rather than blacking out.
I find often it’s dark and I have to lower and raise to make it turn on. And if my other hand is full even try my chin or noise to tap it.
or I’m working out and can’t do any of the above.
If they could add a mode like power save all the time and full face on raise and squeeze in like 12 extra hours of battery I’d be good with that. All I want is to miss a charge at night and be able to make it to next 5pm
Probably an API limit.
Pre-orders don’t begin until 5am Pacific time...Apple moved it back this year
Well fuck apple for wanting me to be healthy and get a full nights rest.
11 pro or pro max?
I changed my mind and decided to upgrade. Will be getting a space gray Pro Max.
I've accepted the fact that I'll probably just have a device payment for the rest of my life.
running into some issues with the upgrade program
I skipped last year so I have a X and had 1 payment left but not due til october (even though I go the X on day 1). I called citizens one and made that payment but the apple store app doesnt register it and tells me I have to turn my phone into in order for the loan to be closed and I'm getting $0 trade in value. Called apple and they said I should've called them to make the payment and not citizens one.
so now idk what the fuck is gonna happen
Apple fucked everyone with the X because it came out in November. Everyone that upgraded last year had to pay a couple payments to make it 12.
you just need to wait a month then sell the X on eBay.
Thinking about selling my Nike 44mm series 4 for the 5. Wonder what a man can get for my watch?
I checked eBay yesterday. Based on past sales they suggested $190 starting bid and expected sale of $250.
I have ATT next.. I have to figure out how much this is going to cost me to upgrade. I think I need to pay 50% off to upgrade.
May make more sense for me to not turn it in and sell it.
Generally going to get more value from selling it yourself
Going with a Pro Max. First time going with the larger model.
I switched to T-Mobile (which has been surprisingly ok) and got their $650 and get to keep my device. I’m rolling around on a paid off xs now. Going to sit on that for a year.
who did you switch from? i'm thinking of switching from verizon to save.
Nice, I'm debating between T-mobile and Sprint. I've heard good things about Sprint in my area and they have a similar $650 thing.
hahahahahahahaha don't you fucking do it
thinking about getting an apple watch. there's really no difference between the 4 and 5 right? the always-on screen doesn't matter to me so I'm thinking about saving a few dollars and getting the 4
I have sprint and live 4 miles from their HQ. I can't use sprint in my home without wifi. You can't use data while on the phone
Yeah sprint network is butt. The center is not.
Feels bad man... I'm assuming I can get more than 791 for my XS Max on eBay?
I am selling an XS Max Phat Plus and will be buying an 11 Pro Max Chonk with the Apple upgrade program
No interviews at this time.
