    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?

    yes

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
