That’s a shame. Now that they are slowly getting MacOS to run on Apple Silicon, I’m really looking to some day where I can boot in MacOS from my iPhone after I plug it to a screen/keyboard/mouse.
I think what Samsung is doing with Samsung DEX is interesting, but there isn’t any ecosystem for Android desktop.
I started playing The Survivalists and Yaga after I renewed my Arcade subscription (mostly to play Crossy Road Castle with my girlfriend) and I'm amazed at how well they still run on an iPhone 8. But now I kinda want a 12. Performance will probably be even more insane, but damn, that camera is probably good enough to make me stop carrying my mirrorless camera everywhere.
I think there is some sort of odd-even thing with iOS, as, iOS 13 was pretty lame and a real buggy piece of shit,. but I think ios14 is great. Even on iPad- I can use the whole thing with a stylus now. I wrote this whole post with the Apple Pencil in the text box. The recognition is not perfect but it seems to be getting better. I wish the iPhone would support it Galaxy note style. Of course Android fans are going to laugh at this but the Home Screen make the interface much more useful and change the way I use it.
Yeah I’m actually glad I didn’t get the max even though I’m sure I’ll get used to the size really quickly.
So far VZW 5G test at my house blows, 4mb up and 2 down. LTE was always really slow here too, but I’d expect 5G with 4 bars to be better than that. I’ll have to check it around town tomorrow in some spots I know to be reliable on LTE. On WiFi or not network-dependent stuff the thing loads stuff up damn near instantly. There’s snappiness and then there’s this, I’m super impressed.
