    I don't even bother watching your iPhone reviews anymore. Here's a Spark Notes version: you sit and bitch about things it's missing that is obvious to everyone and all the people much smarter than you at Apple, but clearly for a reason they've chose not to implement that X feature. Yes you'll bitch about the notch, how they haven't changed anything else but cameras, waste of money, etc etc.

    The iPhone 6s and up are supported on the latest software, iOS 13. That’s a 6 year old phone, not 5. iOS 12 supported devices as old as the 5s, which was 7 generations old in respect to that software update.

    you get 5 years minimum. My 2015 6S will get iOS13 so that makes it 6 years actual time. 15,16,17,18,19,20 =6 ( or 5 model years ) and then 7 if iOS14 in late 2020 will work. I have never had a top tier Android get over 2 years worths of OS updates, that is why I switched to Apple in the first place.

  29. NMEofdaST8

    @hammerrox yes exactly you should have more than 4 years with an A12 cpu

  30. hammerrox

    hammerrox3 ditë më parë

    Not necessarily, no. Recently that has been Apple's thing for updates with the iPhone 5s going from 2013-2019 and the iPhone 6/6 Plus series going from 2014-2019. As phones get more powerful and OS's get more efficient, iPhones will be able to run the software for longer because they can handle the new features and iOS. For example, I wouldn't be surprised if the 6s/6s Plus series continues to receive updates until at least iOS 14/15 because of how fast, smooth and reliable it is on iOS 12 still. The A9 processor is very good and efficient with that kind of stuff, even being released in 2015. So, I would imagine that as time goes on we could see newer iPhones like the 8 and X series last for 7-8 years from the time of launch, that is as long as the batteries get changed every 3-4 years because of degradation.

    While all these ALworksrs will tell you, the peasant, that the new iPhone isn't worth getting, you can rest assured they'll have it for themselves. That's how it always works - the important people have the latest and greatest, meanwhile you're still using a 5s because you work at McDonalds and you're about to fired and replaced by an iPad.

    no, the iphone 11 (or any iphone) is an overpriced piece of shit. You pay $1000 for the bear minimum. Most android phones you can find now have way more features and are overall better than Apple, for cheaper and or the same price. I suggest getting a OnePlus 7 Pro or a Samsung Galaxy s10+ / Note 10

Not to mention his affiliations, partnerships and ties with huge corporations. Factor that in and you will see what I see? One smart mofucker!"

    Only reason to buy a new phone 2015 and onwards for me has always been due to them breaking. Although I do understand people wanting the latest and greatest especially with apple where the resell value makes the new phone quite cheap in comparison to other manufacturers. But most buy them for the fashion statement a 150 dollar phone works about as good as a new flagship phone for 1000$ and a car worth 3000 does about the same as a car for 30000, people have money and seem very willing to burn it quickly, so be happy for their sacrifice! It's just about the only thing keeping the economy afloat anyway.

    Hey Linus, do you think it is worth switching to Apple? Idk if you ever made a video about iOS vs Android or Windows/Linux vs macOS. I am a CS student and tbh I always hated on Apple, b/c I thought they have the same specs as other laptops and sell it for 30% more. Is it as userfriendly as everybody always says or am I better off with a Windows or Linux OS.

    I had my iPhone 5 for four years and it cost me £600 or £150 per year. I could have bought the 4s for £450 but I figured I'd only be able to keep that for 3 years until I needed to upgrade and that is the same £150 per year. It seemed logical to go for the iphone 5 and have the latest phone (at the time). Now of course the caveat is that it would delay my upgrade by 1 year. However, that would have coincided coincided with the launch of the iPhone 7 which I would have waited for father than getting the 6s after 3 years had I gone for the 4s. Instead I went for the Samsung S7 EDGE as it was cheaper, (Apple put up UK prices 20% due to a weak £ whereas Samsung had not), had a larger OLED screen, was waterproof (I dropped my iPhone 3GS in a coffee at work and ruined it), plus had an SD sim card tray for up to 256GB. I now have an S10+ ceramic with 512GB that I paid £879 at a UK airport: The latest iPhone with 512GB is £1,400 or £1,500! I noticed Apple put up the price of all Pro 11 phones £50 (in the UK) whereas there was no increase in the USA. Continuing weakness of the £ no doubt. 🙄😪
