    I decided to get the smaller phone this time around because I was wanting something less bulky and easier to hold. My iPhones have been 5c, 6+, 8+, xs max and 11 pro. I always go for space grey except for my 5c which was pink lol
    Yeah I would definitely get the smaller iPhone 11 Pro it’s absolutely the perfect size. And it has enough power to run 10 nuclear power plants ;-)

    . Yeah the cash price here for an iPhone 11, regular iPhone 11 is $979, so you win the prize.

    Here they want something like $450 just to get the iPhone Pro on a two-year plan.

    Here in Australia you pay nothing upfront and with my phone company if your phone is in good working condition after 12 months you can trade in to get a new phone for a $99 fee. Hence why I’ve had so many phones lol

    That’s an amazing deal. Seems almost kind of wasteful though because the power of the iPhone 11 Pro should be good for about five years. I didn’t even notice any slow down on my iPhone 7 until near the three-year mark.

    I know I’m not a fan of going through the iCloud update to restore a new phone because there’s always a ton of apps I have to re-login to that didn’t fully login and I guess I forgot to check off iCloud photos to back them up until I lost all the photos on my phone, but it’s no big deal I have them all somewhere on Facebook. But still, do you really like going through that experience every year LOL...

    On a positive note, it took about five hours when I got the phone for the iCloud restore to put back all my cards in my Apple wallet for Apple Pay, and I’m glad it did because I wouldn’t even know where to begin. I remember having to phone the bank to set it up initially when I started using Apple Pay and that worked seamlessly for me. It did have an issue where it wouldn’t accept the security code on my card, so I set it up as a brand new card and it worked perfectly, it automatically deleted the old bank card (even though it was the SAME CARD.)

    Thinking about this I probably could’ve bought the iPhone 11 Pro but then my friends would probably resent me and be jealous and never talk to me again LOL

    Oh question, is there anyway I can find out when the production date of the iPhone 8 was?
    I cannot immediately find the Apple site that shows the production date. When I had a warranty replacement 8, it showed like this (myS.N blanked out).

    Replacement iPhone 8

    Model: iPhone 8
    Brand: APPLE
    SN:
    Color: Space Grey
    Memory: 64GB
    Production date: 11-12-2018
    iPhone age: 0 year(s), 0 month(s), 20 day(s)

    OK. Thanks. I was just wondering if there was some code or number on the box where it might give me a clue as to when it was built exactly. I think it was my BlackBerry box that would say a month and a year that your phone was built but I don’t know if Apple does anything like that so simple..

    I don’t mind setting the phone up again lol. I am addicted to new technology. The only thing I hate are any games that don’t link to Facebook or iCloud and you lose EVERYTHING when you change to a new device. I always try and only play games that allow you to transfer data for this exact reason

    You shouldn't lose much game stuff if you set up a new device with your iCloud back up.

    So just out of curiosity I messaged iWorld and they said I could trade my new iPhone 8 towards a white iPhone 11 Pro, regular size. I’m just curious what they’re going to say as to how much value I might lose on my two day old phone. At this point I have every intention of keeping the eight I’m just more curious than anything.

    Yeah it’s strange because when I went from an iPhone 5c to my seven 2 1/2 years ago everything including passwords and photos got put back on the phone I basically had to do nothing to start using it. It was seamless. Then earlier this year my parents both got new iPad pros one the 12.9 and one the 11 inch, the smaller iPad put everything on, no logging in but on the larger 12.9 I had to log into several apps, good thing I make use of Keychain for those PW’s!

    There have been a few games where I have had to start all over again from the beginning from scratch. Now I always check lol

    I am still loving my 8+. It's a great phone, but I understand the appeal of purchasing a newer model because it will be around longer. Keep us posted on what you decide to do!

    I got a buddy who refuses to give up his iPhone 6. His battery health is still 90% which is unbelievable he only has three apps on it and he has to charge it about every two days. The thing with me is I won’t have a phone without iOS updates anymore because I have banking apps and stuff. So as long as I can get three solid years of updates with the iPhone 8 I’m happy because by then the battery will probably be kaput anyway as I usually have 50 apps running in the background.

    Congrats on your new iPhone 8! My son is a fan of the smaller form factor 6/7/8 and currently has iPhone 7. He had the chance to get an iPhone XR last year but instead chose to upgrade to the iPhone 7 for the JB color and price. We're playing close attention to the rumored SE2 for the form factor. Enjoy your new phone!!

    Thanks and yeah my seven was the best phone I ever had but I did notice a slight slowdown on the massively bloated Facebook app, but then sometimes it would be fast again so I’m thinking it could just be some glitches with iOS 13. I got only a year and a half out of my iPhone 5c before it started grinding to a halt and nothing would load, but then that was only a 32 bit processor. I expect we should be fine for quite a while with a seven or an eight, I hope.
