Any buying groups participating in the preorder?
I was told no, as the phones will be available internationally same day.

I'm sure there will be, no need for 2 week notice.

What does that mean? Preorder starts tonight.

I joined the iPhone upgrade program last year before moving to Israel. Now need to confirm a US carrier before getting approved for my upgrade (didn’t realize upgrade program wouldn’t work with international carriers). Any way around this?

Any serious updates or just a new model launched to make $?

Any point in getting the XR?

Other forums are very critical of it and claim it's pure marketing and not worth anything near the $749 asking price.

Problem for me is the other X's are way outa my budget.
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

I would get the X, does the same thing as the newer models and they're cheaper now that the newer models are out. if that's still too much you can always get the 8. still great phone and can carry the same updates as the current models...also the 7 works just fine  ;)

Regular price for the x is still $900. I got it for $500 BF, but that deal is done.

BF day only, I believe it was in store only as well.I don’t remember. They are running another promo now, but it requires a new line. I believe it’s BOGO.

I am a fan
No, my daughter has it, so far so good. Mine is a 7s plus, time to upgrade, i'll either go for the X or the new XR.

Are you guys still happy with the X? I need a new phone today.

The XR is so big  :-\

The XS size is much better but it's so expensive.

He puts it perfectly:

Quote
..Here’s the message: The new iPhones are huge. Absurdly huge.

What’s going on? Bigger, costlier devices generate more profit, for one part. But for another, consumers seem to want bigger phones. They also want big houses, big cars, big televisions. Big is good, small is bad. But Apple also has been pushing bigger models on its customers, so calling the trend a consumer choice is misleading and incomplete.

Instead, Apple is making a statement about how you ought to use your smartphone. Not casually, but wholly. With your entire face and body involved. Both hands gripped fast to the device, held close, so the external world can recede and the smartphone’s can take its place.

Quite sad
