As with any of the last three or so iOS releases. Let's see:Practically everything announced today may be a first for the iPhone, but most of it has already been done elsewhere.
Because Apple always puts out catch up phones.I mean no disrespect but that's what gets said after every single keynote.
As a long time iPhone user... Completely underwhelmed. Where are the leading features that puts it ahead of the competition? Practically everything announced today may be a first for the iPhone, but most of it has already been done elsewhere. And some of its features where Apple has been lagging that users were hoping for an upgrade are actually staying the same. So, we are being asked to pay premium prices just so Apple can catch up a little with what the rest of its competition is already doing?
Not likely. There are better mobile devices for the money than what Apple announced today.
Is it 1080p or 720p?
I have no desire to have any NFC in anything I own so some anonymous geek can rob me.n.
Why? This is a company that said that larger phones were ridiculous...Why because i believe every dang thing apple tells me.
I know someone who has an iP4s which has the worst battery I've ever seen on an electronic device - iOS can't read the state (one moment it's at 20%, the next at 1% and 43% a minute later) and it shuts down randomly due to a supposed lack of charge. Batteries are flaky and they degrade over time.Also would like some stats on the battery claim you made. I have an iPhone 5s and it lasts me 2-3 days between charges.
And this is everyones miss understanding, with the NFC, they are not going to be able to use it, unless they chop your finger off. You saw in the Keynote that you had to use the finger scanner for NFC to work.
Touch ID has been hacked, like any other technological device. One hacker called it "no challenge at all" (source) with others calling it not strong but "convenient" security (source). I'd say that being concerned about putting your credit info behind an easily hackable convenient security measure isn't ignorant but is in fact quite smart. In fact, putting multiple credit cards on any sort of device that can be lost is ridiculous.Yes, people are rather shockingly ignorant about NFC and Touch ID I find.
