Just saw an interview with the Apple CEO explaining away the slow down of Apple. It looks like it is now fully on

As promised, Iím back. i picked up a gold iphone 8 plus after looking at everything i could see no other choice. Iím pretty sure earlier in the thread i said the 8 plus was the right choice, but after 6 to 8 months not thinking about it enjoying my Note i did a ground up looking over and again the 8 plus easily won my choice. My decision was based on observations that i made and hundreds of people confirmed with endless youtube videos

......below are a few of those key points.

Face ID - first thing in the morning and in the middle of the morning the effort to be wide open eyed doesnít work well. Touch ID will always be better.

Low light flicker of the PWM frequency gives a vast majority of users headaches when viewing at low brightness.

The X has to push the OLED screen and higher resolution so hard, the 8 plus is faster in many areas, also concluding to better battery life for the 8 plus.

The damn notch. Also aspect ratio.

The 8 plus is wider than the X so fonts are larger and web pages fit more content across the width.

Price wasnít a factor for me, but I do like getting more for less!

Bezels for people with thumbs. Home button FTW.

Relearning all the mixed up gestures isnít of interest to me. Everything works the way i expect and i can BLAZE on the iphone 8 plus. There are no bugs and itís just perfect.

Here is my two current phones. I didn’t have a pic earlier.

^^^ hard to imagine a dumber product than that home button for X phones.

i get that some don't like the changes the X models bring but iphone isn't going back. my ipad pro uses face id and i'm used to it but it isn't ideal sometimes because i hold the ipad 'sideways' and so one of my hands is often obscuring the camera... ios does gently tell me this so i move my hand and then it recognizes my face.

coming this year, usb-c to all iphones...

i love that my ipad uses usb-c so i can use the same chargers as my google phone now.

I’ve been waiting on APPLE to do USB-C for 3 years because we know what’s going to happen and APPLE knows what’s going to happen and that’s why they haven’t been doing it. The floodgates are going to be open for all kinds of hacking modification jailbreaking and everything else. Of course being APPLE they’re going to change it slightly and make sure that they screw it up for everybody but when they do go to USB-C as long as they’re not proprietary on the plug we will be able to modify and screw around with that connection in all new ways that will benefit the community.

how will usb-c enable things that lightning does not?

and the ipad pro already has usb-c and i haven't seen "all kinds of hacking modification jailbreaking..." out there, but maybe it is, i haven't looked.

I believe fully fuctions for USC-C on iPad Pro is blocked. Only certain functions are available.
