I downsized screen a bit, phone a lot, moving from 8 plus to 13 mini. Was worried. Love it! I have aging eyes, but no issues with it. Screen makes it great, size is great. I have no battery life issues. My only issue is my AirPods not connecting for a call, then not connecting when I opt for them. That is software, was true on my 8 plus, and makes me wonder, Apple, if you folks use your own devices. Maybe that’s why wires are cool again? Anyway, the mini is awesome, Keep it!
There is too much incentive to fabricate these “leaks” and photoshop only helps. Maybe. Also, were I Apple, I would leak fake specs to those employees or suppliers suspected of leaking, various versions, and the leak would then tip off who is leaking. Either way, Prosser is a showboat artist. On his Twitter page he invites leakers to reach out. Desperate for something to leak, maybe, or well connected like in the past was claimed. Bah.
There is a happy middle ground Apple should be doing. Do that repair and the phone works still, but not Touch ID. That's fair. Bricking is overkill and truly a shame. At some level a phone is a safety device (and in my case a work device) and that is too extreme. Of course I would go to Apple if I could, but what if I am far from the mainstream world (travel, Tanzania, outback Canada, etc)?
