Of course i will not get something new as i am very happy with the 11 Pro Max. Next year ill upgrade to something like the regular 12 Pro (S?), the new Pro Max is just too big and akward to carry around.

I have the 11 Pro Max and I’m considering upgrading because my camera seems super slow and laggy which is annoying considering I paid so much for the phone. Also want to have use of 5G which the 11 just stupidly can’t do.. either that or might wait until next year for 13 so I’ve had a good run with my 11 pro max

Not upgrading. I still see the notch and my iphone 8 plus is still working good despite a cracked glass on the back of my phone. I think iPhone 13 or 14 will kill the notch and bring some killer apple technology.

Hey there, I'm planning to switch for the 1st time from an Android (Note9) to an iOS device. Looking for the iPhone 12. As a long time Android user, I'm concered about the fact, that it only got 4gb RAM. Is the less RAM a thing in daily tasks? I read, that iOS is closing down background apps, so that they need to reload when switching between Apps. I would say I'm a normal User like using social media, news and media streaming. Thanks for your help and stay safe! :-)

You don't need these guides, here's my advice: 1. Buy an iphone 10 if you badly need an iphone, it's cheaper and just looks the same with iphone 12 with an ugly notch. Case closed. I just saved 13+ minutes of your life. Lol 😆

Okay. Love the video, but let me offer a point of rebuttal on Mistake #11. With Verizon, they lock the phone the moment you activate it for "fraud and security reasons" for the first 90 days. This TOTALLY screwed me as I had AT&T on my eSim and Verizon on the regular sim. So when I upgraded from XS Max to 11 Pro Max, I couldn't use my AT&T service for 90 days - no exceptions from Verizon. They wouldn't even move my verizon iphone to the esim so I could use the unlocked sim slot for at&T. If the phone was unlocked and sim free out the box, I could activate my iphone 12 on the esim with verizon and pop in an at&t sim for my secondary service which this time will prob be T-Mobile. Just a word to the wise as I had hell last time around. Another word to the wise, with regards to iphones get applecare+ with theft and accidental on your iphone. If you ever have a claim with the insurance company, Assurion, they will REFUSE to unlock your phone FOREVER. At least if you use apple care they will replace your phone with another UNLOCKED phone to avoid the issue above happening all over again. FYI.

Apple is thinking ahead here. Releasing a full 5G line before 5G is even finished seems like a mistake. But by the time 5G covers as much as say 4G. This line up is going to be even more affordable

Why people are so stupid to understand that When mobile company remove some part , They save lots of money (profit) to make a product, But they are not reducing the product's price & even increasing the price. Don't talk rubbish, it's all about making profit. "Removing audio Jack, Apple make profit Not changing charging jack, Apple make profit Removing charger, Apple make profit Removing earphones, Apple makes profit Making small box, Apple make profit What consumers get ?? nothing but loosing more money, Apple knew how to make profit & empty people's wallet. People's are so fool to see that picture" "It's not innovation, it's cheating with people, the soon as people understand that, they can save themselves "

Great video. I will be buying one of these two phones. Either 12 or the 12 pro. Leaning towards the 12, only reason im considering the pro is because its only 5 dollars more a month vs the 12 (128 gb) version i would get. Also really like the ocean blue color. Still thinking about which i should get.
