Thanks, I’ll pass.
Lack of a Home Button is the 100% deal breaker for me.
If I wanted an Android phone, I’d have one.
When Apple brings back TouchID (and an associated virtual Home Button), and gets rid of the notch - ie fixes most of what Jonny Ive has screwed up, I’ll be first in line - until then, my iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 will do just fine).Again, I’m not poo-poo’ing the tech, which is superbly executed, but I’m not going to spend good money to support incompetence and (IMO) Ive’s clueless stupidity. Good riddance that he’s gone, and I have confidence in Tim Cook and Jeff Williams fixing this mess starting next year.
I predict a large increase of torrent users, and 4K/x265torrents of this content. Just like CBS is pushing all Trekkers to torrents, with their attempt to force subscriptions to their loser service, so will Disney cause the same paradigm shift - particularly since The Pirate Bay now allows direct streaming of content.
Unfortunately, though, Apple is more and more neglecting software, or cognizant that its core is software. Bugs, serious bugs, are being left unattended and unfixed for years - particularly on the iPad platform. Siri, 5 years in, is basically unchanged. iOS' contextual awareness has regressed and might as well not exist. But hey, glad Jonny is obsessing over making everything thinner.
