My passion is UI design
I used to enjoy Apple’s fancy designed Apple Store pages for their products. But these latest ones for the iPhones are terrible.
It’s so over designed it is like Apple wants me to scroll through a product video advert.
I’ll probably be buying these for listening to podcasts when my AirPods die (which seems like it’ll be soon).
If I bought new, there’d be the temptation to get the smallest model because I miss small phones… but on the other hand I do enjoy editing my photos on a bigger screen. And doing stuff on a smaller screen is kinda what I bought an LTE Watch for, isn’t it.
It’s the first time in ages I’d be interested in a brand new iPhone (instead of buying secondhand from friends) and that’s entirely because of the iPhone 4-like design. Good thing I can’t afford it.
As for the HomePod mini, it could be an interesting alternative for the Ikea Symfonisk I’ve been planning to buy… if Apple and/or Philips hadn’t decided that HomeKit should not be able to control third-party bulbs connected to a Hue bridge.
I shouldn’t be surprised, because all of the hardware components were known, but the idea of LiDAR-powered autofocus is what’s grabbing my imagination. Even though I shoot video absolutely never.
The iPhone 12 Pro Max is exactly as thick as the regular Pro, so there can’t be a physical reason for the top photo hardware to be available only on the biggest phone, can there? Have to imagine it would eat a tiny bit into the margins, but it’s such an annoying restriction.
Apple just introduced a smaller iPhone by bragging that “it fits in your hand“
There’s something charmingly nostalgic about tech reporters live-tweeting an Apple event like we’re in the Before Times. Feels like our version of the guys who put on tricorn hats and re-enact the Constitutional Convention.
Always love portions of the Apple event where they unveil products almost identical to those of at least two major competitors and pretend that they just miraculously invented these devices out of thin air.
