    Is anyone upgrading from an iPhone 8 Plus (or iPhone 8) to either the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR?

    I'm not. I'm still thrilled with my 8 Plus! I'll be sitting tight with it for at least another year!

    XS Max 256gb is approaching $2000 when you look at buying the phone, glass screen protector and case. 512gb $2250.

    CRAZY pricing. More than happy with my PR 8 Plus and I am running iOS 12 GM and it's super fast and smooth. Am upgrading to the Apple Watch Series 4 Stainless Steel though. Nice hardware updates, solid new features and pricing I'm cool with.

    Are you on 12 yet? I downloaded the GM and my 8 Plus feels so fast and fluent. Such a big improvement. You'll love it if not yet on it.

    I’ve been on the beta of 12 since it launched. I do like the new OS. But the GM on last night too

    I was thinking no but since they are doing away with them I might. I want to check it out and play with it. My brother ordered without playing with it. I need to see it

    Had a very quick thought along the same lines but then came to the following conclusion:

    1. Love my Product Red 8 Plus
    2. Fully covered under AC+ until 2020
    3. Phone is running amazing on iOS 12
    4. Will revisit next fall when Touch ID is built into the screen
    5. Even then, may wait for the S variation to come out in 2020 giving them time to make any necessary improvements to the in screen ID tech.

    I like my product red too. Lots to think about. I can upgrade early. I won’t make hasty decision

    I downloaded the GM beta yesterday which is basically the exact same version to come out to the public Monday. First time I've done it, just found 11 was glitchy and wanted to give it a go and glad I did. You'll see it Monday and I am almost certain you will love it. Finding my 8 Plus is flying on it. Running so smoothly.

    I am not exaggerating when I say I noticed the improvements immediately. Literally.

    Found 11 was buggy - example being transitions were sometimes stuttered or I guess the right wording is not smooth. In 12 they are super smooth and swiping screens, opening and closing apps is really fluent and fast.

    Same. I’m still very happy with my Plus, but am seriously considering upgrading. I still owe another $350 before I can upgrade though. Am I crazy for wanting to do this????

    No, will keep my 8+. Not ready for face unlock yet and I think the pricing of these new IPhones is crazy. No worth an upgrade at this point. Waiting for IOS12 and thinking that IPhone 8+ will be great with this upgrade.

    Maybe I will upgrade when fingerprintsensor is embedded in the front

    Can confirm IOS12 on the 8 Plus is VERY good. Stable, smooth and super fast.
