    Anyone on here still rocking an X?

    Mine is starting to get borderline unusable, it’s practically ready to overheat after simple internet browsing for the last 30 minutes (tried taking my case off which didn’t help), battery is solidly into “service” territory saying 85% of original which I don’t believe for a minute.

    Wondering if it was the last iOS update but I don’t remember it ever being like this before. Wondering if anyone else has experienced their X on its last legs.

    September updates can’t come soon enough.

    I for sure am still using an X. It still works fine for me. I got it exchanged in Apple before my AppleCare expired due to battery concerns. At this time, it still runs perfectly.

    I usually wait for big hardware changes (until Apple remove the notch on top) before I upgrade. I went from iPhone 6 to an X. I am waiting to see what it would look like this coming Fall.

    That's not how it works.

    Geekbench is an architecture benchmark only - an A14 has nowhere near the power of a higher wattage Intel i5 processor and Geekbench cannot be used to accurately compare entire systems either, especially ones that are actively cooled.
    But the result on ARM is thru Rosetta 2. And at this point its just bench racing. IRL is probably worse.

    Is the new TV for sure happening this year? If not, then I rather pick up the 4K now. They are offering 1 year free subscription of Apple TV + with it so that's a bonus.

    PS: I still have the iPhone XS Max and while 'battery life' setting shows around 90% now, it's not terrible. I waiting for the 12 to be announced in September before I upgrade as I feel it's kind of a wasted getting the 11 Pro right now. Depends on the deals that can be had as well though I guess.

    The new iOS update will definitely be pushing the X

    The benefit of masks is not known at this time. But we do know it is some non-trivial amount more than zero.

    We also know that the cost of mask use is, essentially, zero.

    So the cost:benefit of mask use is approaching infinity. I'll take that every time. And every time I see someone without a mask, I think they are stupid.

    Geekbench literally just compares architectures. Apple has similarly efficient architecture to Intel, etc. which is why you see comparable scores. That is the end of it as far as Geekbench results go. It does not mean that a 3W Apple CPU would perform the same in say, Cinebench or a game as a desktop CPU that has the same or even a much lower Geekbench score. For any other purpose or comparison the results are irrelevant, and a lot of people do not understand this (hence why people erroneously go around saying X mobile CPU is as fast as an Intel i5 or X smartphone is as fast as some entire laptop, etc.) A 3W A(X) CPU running at ~2Ghz without any active cooling whatsoever is not even in the same universe as say, a 45W laptop CPU boosting to 4.8Ghz with a fan. Even if you used two of them it would not even get you close to entry level desktop i5 getting fed ~70 times the power and clocked ~2.5 times higher.

    Here's an interesting one. Not sure how many of you are anti-pirate and actually rent/buy content, looks like Apple is now discounting movies purchases if you've rented it before. Not sure if this is an exception for the Theater to Home rentals or what, but it's definitely a nice bonus. Rented Trolls World Tour for the kids for $20 when it came out as rental only, and purchased the movie bundle (with original Trolls) for $25. Got this email today.

    Still have an X. I have to charge the battery halfway through the day now. I used to be able to have it last until evening. My battery capacity says 84%. Iíll most likely upgrade this year. Iíve upgraded every time there is a redesign, iPhone 4 -> 6 -> X.

    I also purchased it and rented it (twice, damn kids) between the time the offer is applicable for but haven’t received a letter like that.

    Can someone explain to me how the hell does Apple TV+ works? So I got the Apple TV 4K today and received 1-year free subscription of Apple TV + with it. I signed up and all after setting up the Apple TV to the projector and on the home screen see the Apple TV app. I open it and there are tons of movies and whatnot in there but everything is paid. Either rent or buy.

    If it's all paid anyway what the hell is the $5.99 per month subscription for? Or is there another app that I need to get or something? Opening that Apple TV app goes on a page with a few tabs 'watch now' 'movies' 'tv shows' and regardless of where I browse all seem to be paid, except I saw Gemini Man under 'watch now' category and when I clicked it, it played in my Prime App. So not quite sure what the heck Apple TV+ is for...

    I donít think itís anything as rare as you seem to think. Browsing through titles I saw this and it seems itís just a promo they are running for everyone.

    It’s a subscription service with some content. The content isn’t great hence why it’s given away for free with any device purchase for a year.

    Look for the Apple TV+ content Section.

    Aside from that what you are seeing is just iTunes like it’s been for years. The rentals and purchases.

    85%??? Those are rookie numbers!

    6s Plus spends most of its time plugged into something... it’s also a little bent to go along with the smashed lens, screen? Still perfect... maybe i will get a 12 when they’re released... but no 5G at launch is the rumour? Shit... might have this relic for a while still
