Apple iPhone Upgrade Mess!

Back on September 12, 2017 Apple launched 3 new models iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. The iPhone 8's would be available to order on September 22, 2017 and the iPhone X would be available to order on October 27, 2017.

After the announcement, I was dead set on upgrading to the iPhone X. I did my research. I was going to trade in my iPhone 7 and get the iPhone X.

The waiting began. I started reading the tech news sites, bloggers and podcasts. The rumors sites indicated that the iPhone X was going to be very difficult to get. If you did not order on launch, you would not get it till next year. The new features on the iPhone X were going to have issues. The Face ID would not work and the notch on screen looks terrible. This phone is only made for the elite and is priced way too high.

I fell for it and decided to get the the iPhone 8 Plus Space Gray with 256GB of storage, which came out to $949 Plus tax. This was my first mistake. It was only $50 less than the iPhone X model. …

iPhone 8 on Sale Now

iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus are now on sale. By looking at the date of shipping, right away you can tell what is selling and what is not selling.

iPhone 8 all colors and size capacities are still available for September 22nd arrival by shipping and pick up.

iPhone 8 Plus is different for colors and size capacities. The Space Gray 256GB is shipping arrival for October 2nd. The Gold 64GB is shipping arrival for October 2nd. The other models are still for September 22nd.

What does this mean? Well, people who want the higher capacity 256 plus size, the demand is higher.

If you are planning to order the iPhone X, make sure you order on October 27th, or you will be waiting for this phone until January.

Apple thinks that having a lot of different models will boost sales. I feel the opposite, it is not about quantity, it is about quality. Apple is starting to follow Amazon's way of thinking. It does not matter the quality of the product, just sell a lot of them and the money will come.

Should You Get iPhone X

I have been hearing that I is crazy to buy a $999 phone. It is just too much.

Well, I feel it is really up to you. If you can afford it and you want a cutting edge technology, then do it.

Times have changed my main driver is my phone. I do everything on it. I don't even own a computer. In fact, I am posting this from my iPhone.

You can buy a MacBook Air or iPhone X. Guess which one you will use more.

New Apple Products This Fall

This fall Apple has a whole bunch of new Apple products. Here is what I have and want.

Apple iPad Pro 10.5 Space Gray 256GB - I already own this iPad and it is my main driver. Best iPad I have ever owned. I was hoping for a new Apple Pencil, but maybe in March next year they will come out with Apple Pencil 2.

Apple iPhone X Silver 64GB - This is probably most anticipated iPhone since the first I phone. I can't pass this one up even at the price of $999. I will definitely get a case, since Apple Care costs $199. Also, a wireless charging pad would be great.

Apple Watch 3 - I like this new watch, but I still can't justify buying the first watch. I like the new feature that it is independent of the iPhone. It also adds $10 more to your cellular bill. Maybe next year.

Apple TV 4K - Yes, it finally has 4K HDR, but there is nothing more it does than what my 4K TV and Fire TV box already does. Maybe next year when Apple gets a TV streaming service (if they ever will).

Apple September 2017 Event - Updated

Ok, we are less than a day away from Apple's announcement of new products for fall of 2017. I seen all the leaks and predictions now here is what I expect to see.

Apple Watch 3 - Same design now has a LTE chip for phone and data connection.

Apple TV 4K with HDR - Same design. Also, Amazon Video, and other TV services, maybe.

iPhone - 3 models iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. A lot of people think that this an 'S' year, but in reality it is not. I think last year more changes were planned, but they were pushed out to this year. This is the year they needed to move forward with a new design. I am also hearing that the iPhone X will ship later. I believe it will ship with the other two phones, but will be out of stock immediately. As soon as you login to order, it will say 4 to 6 weeks to ship. Basically delayed without saying it is delayed.

iPhone 8

64GB and 256GB

iPhone 8 Plus

iPhone X Availability

I am hearing that this phone will not be available at launch. This is my prediction.

The phone will be available at launch, but when made available it immediately go to something like ships in 4 to 6 weeks.

I will edit this post on the twelfth. Let's see if I am way off...

High End iPhone May Not Be Call Edition

It looks like high end iPhone may not be called iPhone Edition.

The high end iPhone name is still unknown. We won't know until the Apple Event coming up. It could still be iPhone Edition, iPhone Pro and iPhone X.

Let's see what Apple decides...
