The only reason the glossy one exists is it looks good in renders. Matte is always superior for it not having fingerprints.

Pricing is a joke, but that's probably down to the stupid exchange rate. The supposedly cheaper 'old' 6S is the same price it was last year when new, and the 7 is 100 more expensive

Pricing is up.

You lightly double tap the sensor ring and it brings the top half of the screen down.

Not as bad as I thought it would be.

It's still 367 for the lowest 32GB iPhone 7 every year if you upgrade. 433 for the lowest 7+.

Surely it'd be better value to just buy sim free and sell it? Although it is interest free.

Any info on how much cheaper without AppleCare+? I don't think it's necessary in the EU


Edit: ah it's about 5 less per month but you lose the yearly upgrade - it's just a 20 month interest free purchase

Is anyone else getting an old iPhone 3G vibe from the piano black? It might just be the curved edges, but at least in pictures, it reminds me more of the cheap glossy plastic of the 3G than the beautiful glass of the 4.

I'm leaning more towards the matte finish because of it.

Well it is necessary for the accidental damage coverage if that's what you want.

Let me go try and see

You can't get it without Applecare+ at least in the US. The monthly is just RRP + applecare retail price over 24 months with the option to replace the phone after 12 months worth of payments.

Just imagine the matte black with chamfered edges and a glass back. So good.

Yeah. I really want the Jet Black but I can totally see it picking up fingerprints.

Though I'm still sad I was never able to get a 5C in black. I got the white but a black one would have looked amazing.

headphones look pretty good.

1. dropping 1 in the toilet
2. having one have a shitty battery
3. having either one fall out
4. having pairing bullshit (which they claim won't happen)
5. that fucking adapter for normal headphones

Not sold on the idea. just too easy to lose one. the phone functions and double tap were a bit 'oooh the future' though.

Wondering the same, but assuming one might be if you are still grandfathered in for unlimited via ATT it would be best to go with Apple?

the phone is unlocked, so if you travel abroad you can swap the card out, or if you switch carriers you can do that too. You get apple care+ (the cost is added into your monthly).

I'm not getting one, but so damn interested in how much consumers give a shit about the lack of headphone port. I think Android users will care more due to the amount of choice they have, but if people want an iPhone, this is the iPhone.

Presuming people will generally not care tbh.

Anyone seen anything regarding AT&T and/or Verizon 2 year contract pricing for the US? I'm on a business account and we can still use 2 year contracts.

Also, would 6S+ cases and tempered glass protectors work on the 7+ or no? They are the exact same size, but the camera would give me pause on the back and the home button on the front.

100% out of the question. Apple is doing the right thing at the wrong time. In a year or two it will be the right time, so backtracking would be ridiculous.

The iPhone Pro camera. God damn.

I think it would be easier to forgive if they added a second lightning port so I can charge my phone and use the headphones at the same time. Apple has basically upped the number of accessories I'm gonna need to buy or have on hand to get around this bullshit by maybe 5-6. I'm throwing car related accessories into that number and maybe a couple use cases I haven't thought of yet.

It just feels like they ruined what would have been a pretty good upgrade (at least for me since I'm on 6 plus) with some Old Microsoft level nonsense.

"We want to sell more tablets so we're gonna make Metro for Windows 8 mandatory! Even for PC users! Don't you want one of our fantastic tablets now?"

"We need to increase the base for Kinect so we're going to make them mandatory to buy and forward the costs of justifying this technology to developers on to you the consumer!"

This really feels like a phone that I'm going to keep for about a year and ditch as soon as the next one comes out. That's if they have a better solution by then.

Also I feel like Apple's warning for the jet black or whatever it's called is incredibly stupid, "look at how good this phone looks! Also get a case and cover up how good it looks because it'll scratch really easily."

Was gonna get the jetblack 128GB plus, but I'm thinking against it now it will most def skuff up overtime and with the way cases love to have cut out for apple logo on back that will get rekt.

So, I'll go with 7+ 128 black me thinks or should I go with 256GB it's only $150 more in Australia. Help me decide D;

Edit: Also, I'll be selling it within a year easy if next iPhone has OLED and all the other extra rumors. I sold my iPhone 6 for nice amount market here is good for selling.

Yeah the fact that's it's packed in and gives people the same experience/audio people have been fine with for years on the iPhone, this is going to blow over quick.

Trading the phone in 'pays off' the rest of the 12 months.

No. If you pay 24 the phone is yours to keep. Or you can replace it with a new phone after a year and reset the clock. So you start another 24 month period.

Basically keep paying and get a new phone every year. Stop and after two years you keep the phone

If you pay the full 24 months you can keep the phone, if you pay 12 months you can upgrade the phone BUT you also have to return the phone to Apple in (I assume) pretty decent condition. I've heard it compared to a lease.
