    I currently have the iPhone 11, but I’m thinking about trading mine in for the 13. Should I do it or wait?

    What enticing me in the 5G data versus the 4G (i’m currently on AT&T in oklahoma city, can you really care that much difference)

    What also enticing me is the MagSafe. For the people that have the iPhone 12, do you guys use the mag safe battery pack, if so, is it too bulky in your pocket?

    That decision is all yours. Take a look at the iPhone 13 and decide if it’s for you. I don’t use MagSafe. Good luck.

    If you have 5G in your area it’s worth the upgrade.

    You need to turn off find my iPhone and then do a factory reset. Then they can setup for themselves.

    I’m not totally sure. But don’t think they can use the sun cards from iPhone 7. They will need to goto thier carrier and get a new one when they activate it on their plan.

    Yes you will need to take out your nanoSIM card. You might need a new 5G nanoSIM (or eSIM) to have full 5G features. However, the 4G card should still provide minimal 5G service — unless there are some carrier restrictions.

    Their iPhone 7 nanoSIM card should work in the iPhone 11 — unless there are some carrier restrictions.

    Side note: I have been using the same nanoSIM since my iPhone 5 in 2012, and it still works in the iPhone 11 (on 4G).

    I have noticed on my iPhone 11 that I was planning on giving my aunt or uncle that currently have a iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, that on my iPhone 11 I have noticed that some text messages aren’t making the notification sound as I don’t know if it’s the service from AT&T because some are coming in just fine and others aren’t, and the breaking up of some people on the other end of the phone I have noticed.

    What would you guys do

    it is probably not much of a upgrade going to a 13 from an 11 besides the form factor of the phone. I went from 11 pro max and upgraded to the 12 pro max. only because I have handed down my old device to my mom but I wasn't much of a difference. I feel iPhone 11 would be good for another couple years or so

    I just upgraded from an 11 promax to a 13 promax and I’m just gonna be honest here, I cannot tell the difference. Maybe that’s because I don’t use all the features that are available but in my normal every day use I cannot tell the difference.

    I also just ordered the 13 Pro Max coming from an 11 Pro Max because of the difference’s that the eye can’t see

    Can’t wait for her to arrive

    I had the 11PM and then the 12PM. I couldn’t tell a difference either. They do exactly the same thing exactly the same way. I’ve ordered a 13PM to replace the 12PM. I’m sure it will be pretty much exactly like the 12.

    You will see a big difference in the 13. The pro motion and the cameras are awesome to boot and a much better device all around. A lot thought the 13 pro as a S upgrade but it’s not a lot of major changes.

    I did the same thing. Called Apple today; canceled my 11 Pro Max trade-in and requested return authorization for the 13 Pro Max. Am taking it to my local Apple store tomorrow. Just wasn't worth the over $700 difference. I don't use all the bells and whistles on the 11 Pro Mac.

    I traded my 11 Pro max for a 13 Pro and glad I did. I'm one that really uses the cameras though so for me it's a pretty solid upgrade, especially the ultra wide with better light sensitivity and Macro mode.

    That pro motion screen is also smooooooth. I noticed it for sure. It's subtle but there. It's like when I moved from my Wife's old 10.5 iPad Pro to the current gen iPad Air which doesn't have it. I noticed that, and I notice the difference between the iPad Air animations/scrolling/etc and my new 13 Pro. However, especially if you've never experienced it before, you may not notice it or may notice "something is different" but not be able to say what.

    Each iteration is slightly better. 5G is worth it, IMO. If you can get a 13 for the same price that you cab get a 12.then yes, get a 13. If you could save some money by getting a 12 and you don't have to have the very latest...by all means get a 12! I just bought a 12 Pro Max and I have 0 regrets about not getting a 13 Pro Max. Slightly better camera that I might not really notice? Slightly better speed that I'm sure I won't notice? Slightly better battery life? 5G is a worthy upgrade. The rest...hmmm.....
