    How many of you have held onto your iPhone XS Pro all this time...

    ...but will finally be upgrading to the iPhone 12 when it hits your local carrier store?

    How many will not be?

    Still using 8+.

    Highly disappointed that it still has a lightning port instead of USB C.

    I’m on a new iPhone strike until they replace lightning with USB C.

    Op, I still carry my iPhone XS Max with my 11 pro max and am not planning to upgrade to the 12 pro max or 12 mini.

    That iPhone strike is going to last a long time. With the new magnetized MagSafe chargers, I suspect apple is going to drop The lighting port completely before replacing it with usb c.

    It’s a shame, Personally I’m getting tired of carrying three different cables when traveling; lightning for iPhones and AirPods, Usb-c for iPad Pro, and the Apple Watch magnetic charging cable. But don’t think that is going to stop me from picking up any new apple gear.

    Yeah, that's not going to happen. I personally like the lightning port better and I don't have to figure out if it's the right way or not like with the USB C.

    I really haven't made up my mind concerning the iPhone 12 Pro Max. I was really hoping that the notch would be smaller or non existing. Might just stick with my 11 Pro Max for another year.

    Not sure why people don’t like the lightening Port on the iPhone. The cord fits in either way and is secure enough to hang your device from it. One member noted that there’s to many cords to carry so I can see that as a hindrance but other than that I love it

    I’m also planning on keeping my 11 Pro Max for another year. Hopefully the i13 will have a higher refresh rate and a smaller notch

    Both ends of a USB C cable are the same, so not only does it not matter which end is up, it also doesn’t matter which end of the cable you use. Besides there are several lightning cables in our home that work in only one direction because the exposed contacts are not functioning.

    It would be nice to just unplug iPad Pro and plug in iPhone without reaching down and swapping power adapters and cables. Same cable and brick.

    At least they now have USB C to Lightning cable.

    Self & wife still solidly 8+..... Will only do a battery change, if & when needed!! And the improvements in iOS14 make an 'old friend' new again anyhow!! The USB C issue a bit moot for us as charging is mostly QI

    I’ll stick with the XS for the next couple of years. I like the Lightning plug and have not yet had one wear out before the cable !

    I might as well chime in. Lately...or at least since I bought my XS Max, Apple hasn’t given me any real reason to give them another $1000 of my hard earned dollars for a new model iPhone...pure & simple. They do what Apple has always done...done just enough to make their minions work up a lather. I’m not a huge photographer, so the new “spider eye” cameras don’t entice me. The 12 has a new squared off body shape, higher grade retina screen, and only a few other upgrades that are barely noticeable.

    My XS Max is doing great. Yes, the battery has worn a bit where I have to plug in at work close to the end of the day to last on the commute home...but that’s not a huge deal. With iOS14, it’s given me a few new things to play with, and it still runs as fast & smooth as it did on day one. And if it doesn’t , I’m too old to tell anyway.

    Nope, I’ll wait for the iP13 or so. Maybe they’ll lose the notch and give a bigger capacity battery. That might do the trick for me.

    I feel the same way. I was really hoping the notch would be smaller or removed all together. Honestly I'm a little disappointed.
