If they don't make some kind of announcements about the iPhone7 soon, I'm going to bust a nut. My iPhone4 has reached a point of non-functionality that it's effecting my life.

The iPhone 7 will be a great smartphone as all other iPhones have been to date. People will explode and freak out because of changes but CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE VOTE FOR HILLARY.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

We have a half dozen Apple-related threads in this forum! But nothing that's just Apple itself. So I'll steal this thread, since this is also the main theater of war between the formats.

A good day for Ireland!

Apple Ordered by EU to Repay $14.5 Billion in Irish Tax Breaks

I just ordered an iPhone7 to replace my iPhone4. Not 4s, but 4. It arrives next week. I really don't know what I'm going to do with myself when I have a smart phone that actually does shit instead of just spends all it's time loading and crashing.

Goodbye Siri!

Rumor is that the iPhone 8 will use Google Assistant.

If iPhone embraces (or even better, integrates) Google, it will make my life heavenly.

Google Assistant sucks dick. Plus, I doubt Apple would give more pie to google.

I agree that it sucks dick! The smarter it gets the less useful it is...weirdly.

$1K for the new iPhone.

I'm using my 7 until it falls apart in my hands.

$1K for the new iPhone.

I'm using my 7 until it falls apart in my hands.

Also, there are very few upgrades. A slightly faster processor, a slightly better camera, and wireless charging. So you're paying 1k for them to change the "7" to an "8."

Looks like this is the year of playing it safe. Samsung did the same thing with the Galaxy 8. I'm keeping an eye on the Pixel 2, but I'm not particularly excited. We've hit the mobile plateau, and the makers know it. They're going to ride brand recognition and make it as expensive as possible and run to the bank.

What happens next is going to be a big break in the technology -- either super-chips (already in testing) or a new battery technology (many exciting ideas still in the lab stage). Two things that are Not Very Far Away.
