    I am still hoping they announce phones tomorrow so I can get a new one. Don't care anymore if it has usb-c or not but if the pro isn't 120hz I will probably just get the 12.
    Sounds like the watches will be same old and redesign will come in 2021. Non pro watch no ecg or always on display.

    What does an Apple Watch redesign mean anyway. They havenít exactly gotten any better in 5 generations I donít see what is going to change about the 6th.

    Iím guessing the new iPhones with be new cool looking, powerful, but features remain the same aside from LIDAR gimmick that does literally nothing. Only way you will notice 5G is by the logo in the corner and your 4 hour battery life phone.

    I donít even know what a killer feature could possibly be for these phones, which really sucks because I have been saying I want to upgrade this year for 3 years But I donít see a compelling reason to drop 1500 dollars on a cell phone right now.

    Who knows, probably in screen fingerprint at least. I will be stuck getting whatever comes out now as I like having a smartwatch. I use virgin mobile and for some reason they will sell you a 5g phone but don't currently support 5g so that won't be of much use to me, nor do I have the data limit to care about faster speeds.
    Without the 120hz screen, then it is just squared off shape and lidar along with new faster/better processor. Hoping 128gb is standard on both but maybe pro only.

    new OS, improved sleep tracking and activity tracking Im guessing, I also heard they were bringing in a exercise platform like what peloton does but who knows.

    Since weíve had no vacations, I donít need any more fancy cameras on my phone. Unless thereís some Touch ID or better Face ID when wearing masks, Iím skipping another generation of phone. XS for another year.
    2.5 years with my iPhone X now and unless it dies on me I donít plan to get a new phone until I travel again.

    I am kinda looking forward to this. Been with the XS Max since it first come out which feels forever. Depending on what this one looks like and the features it packs, I will pick it up. Since I also have the Fold incoming, ultimately I will likely decide on one of the two as a keeper.

    The 120Hz LTPO display uses less battery life. Even if the user isn't gaming with it, it would be beneficial to have better battery life. I don't know about you, but that's a big plus for me.
    Overall, isn't high refresh display make battery life worse? Otherwise, why would Android always use adaptive or slow it down to reduce battery draw.

    On the S20, 60hz vs 120hz cost is about 10% of battery life. I won't give that up for smoother scrolling, especially when travelling.

    Basically 120Hz WITHOUT LTPO means terrible battery life. And it’s pretty well known LTPO isn’t happening for these phones. So yea 120Hz would not really be beneficial for these phones.

    I’ll watch the event today, not expecting to see anything I want to buy (even if iPhones are part of the program).

    LTPO is just refresh rate isn't it? That's the tech that they put on the latest Apple Watch to drop frame rates as low as 1fps to conserve battery?

    I think it is generally a new manufacturing process that lowers OLED power requirements substantially essentially enabling 120Hz mobile devices. If I understand correctly.

    Without it you can make 120Hz phones, they would just die in a few hours.

    I think it’s quite hard (expensive) to scale hence being on the watch but not phone.

    Will there be a new Apple TV announced today? I need to pick up another one but I've been waiting to see if a new one is to be announced.

    This I could actually get behind. I could use a few actually.

    Don't think there's a new Apple TV coming out. 4K already has everything and nothing in HDMI 2.1 really aligns with Apple TV's focus.

    I upgraded all my Apple TV's to 4K this year.

    I wonder if the large majority of people even care about these health stats that the Apple Watch can track. I highly doubt it.

    Make a watch that goes a week without charging and maybe features like sleep tracking will become relevant.

    I don't know why a company as large as Apple won't fucking innovate and make some more significant changes as far as design is concerned. I guess they know the followers are going to keep buying no matter what so why spend the money on R&D if they don't need to. 6th fucking generation and it still looking the same as fucking day one.

    Watch SE is tempting, never had an apple watch but always wanted one. That pricepoint is pretty good

    SE Asian countries are relying on blood O2 levels for early onset of COVID detection successfully. I wouldn't be surprised if this will be a marketing push by Apple.

    Someone on my team in India detected low O2 levels with no other symptoms. Tested positive, so in some cases, it works.
