Wow, really nothing new. No innovation that most people will use on a daily basis.
Don’t get me wrong I like iPhones, but it’s just a 12 with a better camera which I probably won’t be able to tell the difference anyway with my untrained eye.

Ohh but here’s a surprise that they never did before,
It’s the most advanced iPhone Apple has ever built.
I really wasn’t expecting that.

New brighter display, new battery, new cpu, new gpu, new cameras, new color, more storage and bigger batteries.

Don’t really know what more you were expecting.

I think that people expect crazy changes each year, visually. I kind of get it. Somebody at work asked me what device I was using. I told them the 13. He said stop lying. That’s a 12. And pulled his 12 out. He thought he busted me lol. I then showed him the differences.

Have you ever used an android device? It seems like android just kind of throws things together. Apple tests things, works on them with considerable OCD. Before releasing them. Makes sure every detail is perfect before releasing it out into their ecosystem. I’m okay with the 13 looking the same as the 12. As long as the upgrades are where it counts. IE: camera, battery, cpu, display etc etc.

There is only so much that can be done to a handheld device before things start being repeated or it is pointless to upgrade anymore. I think it’s smart slowly releasing changes. Besides, users wouldn’t be so grateful if they released everything all at once, compared to slowly.

I get it though. I’ve said the exact same thing multiple times.

Is it me or does it seem whenever Android has something new, it’s described as a cool feature and then a month or two later, the user ends up griping about how useless it is?

Yet, whenever Apple makes what it has better, it’s shunned as not being innovative. Yet, one or two features tend to cause Android users to buy an iPhone. To be fair, Android offerings have attracted some iPhone users. ;)

You mean like 1080p 120hz on the s20 that everyone switched off. Nope doesn’t happen .

I think, from a fanboy standpoint, it goes both ways. People are emotionally attached to products, thanks to marketing by large corporations, and feel a need to defend their choice. It leads to “X is perfect, Y is not”.
It’s all just basically silly.

^^This^^ …and I understand the emotional attachment. These things are not cheap and, for some, can’t be taken for granted. As someone who spends WAY too much on mobile devices I can see how others might become a fan-person of this manufacturer or that one.

Android is certainly more innovative, and whether the innovation is worth it or not is not worth arguing over.

Thing is, Apple literally says that each new iPhone is the best iPhone ever made, but they don’t do for their other products, where ironically the claim would be true in most cases. This has been Apple’s MO for the iPhone for over a decade. As an advertising campaign, it is long in the tooth and redundant.

Personally, I think it’s stupid to release a new model every year but logistically it is probably easier to do so.
