    Did anyone see everythingapplepro’s latest iPhone 8 leaks video?

    He’s saying how touchID will be on the back now, that the design isn’t going to be anything like we thought and a whole bunch of other fluff. He’s really starting to annoy me.

    I recommend Cricket if AT&T works for you except for price. It is hard to beat from that standpoint, and if you are used to buying your devices upfront anyway it really won't be any different.
    I agree. I pay $35 per month and get excellent service. AT&T and Verizon are pricing themselves out of my market and I suspect many others as well.

    I saw the video. Nothing is set in stone, and even he commented on how Apple was locking things down, and the decrease in leaked/stolen hardware that is making it out of the factories. So we are basing everything on rumors and drawings that may or may not be several revisions old.

    I know everyone who is a loyal longtime Apple user thinks the rear Touch ID is the end of the world, but I find it no harder to use than the front sensor. Of course my only experience with a rear sensor was the Pixel, but I had no issue with using that.

    I agree. The only reason I see people sticking with them is for device financing, but if you step back and look at the total costs, you could buy a new phone every 18-24 months with the savings from a MVNO vs the big 4 networks. That said, I am currently taking advantage of the year free with Sprint, after which I will for sure be switching my number back to Cricket. My wife may stay with Sprint (but switch to prepaid) because they are the only carrier that has any signal at her work.

    I think if Apple offered financing directly it might steer more people away from the big 4. I know Apple offers special financing if you open an Apple card, but I don't know if they do special promotional rates (no interest for X months) after you have the card, or if it is only when you first open it. The fine print says you have to make an eligible purchase within 30 days of opening the card to get the interest free period.

    It should not annoy you until apple confirms it.

    Given how most carrier plans are setup now, it makes sense for most people to just trade in and get the latest every year. I upgraded on every device except these last 2 bc they just didn’t seem significant from the 6/6+ to make the jump (for me). I think the current devices are obviously getting better and can handle newer os’s so it really comes down to preference. How it’s shaping up, the iP8 is gonna be a pretty big deal so I could see it being a big upgrade cycle. But from a 7/7+ will you really *need* to upgrade? Probably not, but the (near?) edge-to-edge display is definitely worth it
    For me, there's never a "need" to upgrade. I just do it because I like new devices🤷🏾*♀️

    I stick with Verizon because I travel and have never had any issues, even when traveling to scarcely populated areas. No financing of devices, just exceptional coverage that I don't have to worry about.

    As far as the Apple Card goes, that's through Barclaycard & they offer promotional rates based on your credit score just like other card companies. So it has nothing to do with Apple, it's all about your credit.

    Yes I know how the card works, I was just saying if Apple offered 12 or 24 month interest free financing, more people may take them up on that, and then not feel the need for financing the phone through a carrier.

    I'm getting it. I'm sure it'll have Pro Motion (would be extremely stupid if it didn't) and after seeing Pro Motion on my iPad Pro 10.5, everything else seems laggy.

    It's expensive and my 7+ is doing great. I know iOS11 will give it a great refresh. I love my 7+ and will hold off . I have other things my money is needed for. If i was having serious issues with my phone I would but for once in my tech life my phone has been great. No need at the moment.
