    Wife smashed the screen of her 11 on a counter corner. Thank god we have AppleCare. Screen doesn’t recognize any touch input.

    I ordered my watch from Best Buy like a week or so after they went on sale because I could get it in a week instead of nearly 2 months from Apple

    I had the same thing with my Mac Mini. Apple said it was going to be like a few weeks before I would get it. Amazon had the exact same version with the same mods I wanted for the same price and I got it like the next day. Ended up getting a shit load more Amazon Points too since I have the Amazon Prime Visa.

    Some unboxing videos have been released. The blue version of the 12 looks nothing like what was shown on the Apple website when ordering. Not too happy right now. We'll see.

    Wow yeah that is way more saturated than I thought. The Pro has that less glossy and more muted feel to it that I would prefer. How long do I have to change my mind once the standard is in my hands this Friday, I wonder?

    It appears a little different in every video/picture I've seen. I'm guessing most of that has to do with lighting and whatnot. I'll need to see it in natural light. It's pretty much a moot point as I'll have it in a case anyway.

    The pacific blue on the 12 Pro looks great.

    Got an alert my iPhone is prepared for shipment and expected to be delivered Friday.

    I am considering having it held at a local Walgreens. UPS offers to hold packages at local retailers to avoid having it left on my porch. I assume I will be home all day and available when they deliver but also am concerned that people know it’s the delivery day and could simply follow UPS drivers around looking for delivery of iPhone shaped boxes and grab them as UPS drives off.

    Rant incoming -

    I got my mom an Air last year for Hanukkah. I bought it at Costco because they had a really good deal and forgot about buying the extended care. Wasn’t a big deal because you have a year to buy it. However if you buy Applecare after 45 days of purchase, apparently you have to bring the laptop into an Apple store for them to inspect before they provide the warranty. That makes sense, I get it

    However, There are no stores open anywhere in Missouri because of COVID. They wont let me get the warranty and suggested she drive to the nearest open store in Tennessee lol. It's fucking ridiculous they wont make an exception or have a work around for this

    Regular 12. Fancier camera does nothing for me. Payment dropped $15/month from my 11 Pro Max.

    I got an X that still good to go. I'm definitely punting til 13, if not later. No longer have the new phone bug, and the technology doesn't seem to be improving by leaps like it was for a while there.

    yeah I know - having 5G would be nice, but since it’s not readily available in DFW except for a small part of Dallas, and LTE seems to work just fine for me right now, there’s nothing on the new one that I just need to have

    Just got the 4th gen iPad Air. The Touch ID is in the power button on the top edge of the housing. Not sure that’s gonna work with a case, and I always use a case with iPads to protect them. I guess I’ll do some internet searching for a compatible case.
