    I’m holding out on a new watch because 1) I don’t need a new one but mostly because 2) there are rumors that it will track blood sugar levels in the next couple years. I have a family history of diabetes so that would be a pretty big deal for me.

    That would be a game changer. That and blood pressure

    I would just had over my credit card to Apple and just say charge whatever you want just give me the damn watch if it did blood sugar.

    Rumors of a new watch form factor this fall. More square edges like the iPhone 12. Vs rounded.

    I got a great deal on stainless series 5 with stainless link from someone upgrading to 6. I feel the watch is a great used buy.

    I agree to an extent, but I feel like battery life on these dwindle significantly after 2-3 years.

    Very true. Mine just makes the day. But I use the workout app 1-2 hrs a day. I’d imagine that’s a power hog

    I got this Belkin combo charger that uses the MagSafe charger in iPhone 12. Overnight charging next to bed. So easy to check notifications etc. But expensive as hell.

    The new additions with iCloud+ seem interesting. And bringing spatial audio to tvOS and MacOS is going to be nice.

    unfortunately no. DAC issues with lightning port

    Spotify hifi or tidal are ahead due to platform support to stream independently

    You can from a computer.

    Doing anything wirelessly/Bluetooth is not actually lossless, those protocols compress the files.

    also for anyone wondering the airpods max are not "wired" when they're plugged in. It's still using a wireless protocol.

    I don’t get who would want to hook up cables to their phone for better song quality.

    If you’re that much of an audiophile you’re more than likely hooking all that up to a computer.

    I’m actually more hyped for when I move and hook up the latest Apple TV to my Dolby Atmos amp. You can tell a diff with AirPod pros and Atmos but lossless yeah I haven’t felt much diff if any at all. Maybe it’s a bit clearer or maybe I’m just tricking myself into thinking that.

    i think lossless is overhyped as it is one of many factors to how "good" audio sounds to someone

    it seems like unless you have a proper set up, the vast majority of people couldnt tell the difference between a 128 kbps mp3 and lossless audio

    Went ahead and ordered the series 6 watch. With giftcards I had for Amazon, I got a GPS 44mm for $211. If I really want a 7, I'll give the 6 to my wife, or if it's too big for her I'll trade it in.

    I hate it. It’s like listening to a speaker in a bucket. I keep trying to turn the music up because it doesn’t seem like it’s loud enough in my headphones.

    Listening on my AirPod Pros and definitely picking up some "new" sounds I haven't heard before on old songs. Not necessarily better but it's interesting for now. Looking forward to listening on my Sony WH1000xm4's tonight to see if there's a difference.

    Touché. Must just be the spatial sound and higher quality Dolby with a side of placebo.

    I’d say the same. Currently listening to What I Got by Sublime which is in Atmos and it felt like the song had a different level of depth. Which makes sense.

    The mixing of the song has an exponential amount of difference to how it sounds compared to the bitrate (assuming you’re not listening to some like dial up speed stream).

    Switched to iPhone 12 Pro Max from XS yesterday via iCloud backup. Everything went smoothly except it didn’t transfer my iCloud Keychain passwords. Old phone was wiped and kept as a trade in. From what I’ve read there’s no recovery for that and I’m going to have to start over. That’s annoying. Some apps and sites stayed logged in, though.

    Yeah but you'd know because you paid for it and damnit they need to appreciate hearing The Big Bang Theory the way it was meant to be heard.

    Really though Atmos is great and really good headphones make a huge difference, especially if something was mixed well.

    I use 1Password because I’m 100% sure the guy who made it wears white tube socks with sandals and Dockers. Likely a Fanny pack, Hawaiian shirt, and transition lenses.
