Here we are, less than a month away from a new iPhone announcement. This past week, Apple sent out invitations to their annual fall event. It will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater on September 12th, at 10am Pacific Time. I cannot believe that we will have a new slew of iPhones to choose from. It seems like yesterday that I picked up my shiny-new iPhone X and that is saying a lot.
Usually, by this time in the year, I am itching to get the latest and greatest from Apple. This year is a bit different. I was thinking it was just me. I have a wedding that has been going through my mind and my wallet. So maybe that is why? I don’t think so. Is Apple just downright boring now? I doubt that either. As many others have said, to put it simply, the iPhone X is my favorite iPhone.
2018 might be the first year that I don’t pick up the newest iteration of iPhone. I have been running the iOS 12 Public Beta over the last couple of months and have noticed no slow down on my iPhone X. My battery health is showing 96%, which means when my phone shows 100% its max capacity is really only 96%.
Rumors are saying that we will probably get a low-cost 6.1″ iPhone, an updated iPhone X and an iPhone X Plus. While I loved my Plus phones before, the iPhone X has hit the sweet spot for me, as far as size goes. I just don’t know what Apple could do to push me into a newer iPhone X or iPhone X Plus. Other than a Plus size, I have not heard of any crazy features that will make the upgrade worthwhile for me. Of course, the new iPhones will have an updated camera and updated processor but both of those are already fantastic on my iPhone X.
Anyone who knows me knows that I change my mind a thousand times when it comes to iPhones, so we will really have to wait until September to see what I do. I think I am more excited about a new Apple Watch, since mine is coming up on two years old. Also, my iPad Air 2 will be four years old this fall, which is making my mind wonder whether or not I need(want) a new one. We also cannot forget that Apple’s previously announced wireless charging mat, AirPower, has yet to be released.
This September will either be one of the most expensive or least expensive Apple launches for me. Either way, I am content with the iPhone X right now and I look forward to September 12th.
