so, screw over the west coast people


Not a major screw over as it was for east coasters. You'll survive the 5 am wakeup vs the 3 am wake up eastern guys had to.

Can we get some details on how the iPhone upgrade program will work? When I clicked through the Apple store app to check out the details it says I’ll be responsible for the entire amount due on the iPhone loan, minus the $500 trade up value? That sounds bogus!


Don't select that you have an iPhone to Trade In. That is only if you are selling them your iPhone back (which under the iPhone Upgrade Program would require you to buy your phone outright first).

I’m in the same boat, with about 40GB used. Personally, I’d go for the 64GB and if needed purchase a larger iCloud plan later on for a few dollars. That’s what I’ll most likely be doing.


I already pay for the largest iCloud plan for everyone in our family to sync their iPhones (6 iPhones via Family Sharing). I just checked my daughter's phone and she somehow is still managing to use 92GB/128GB on the phone.. likely due to the 1,000s of TikTok videos. She's gonna need to figure something out because we're all getting 64GB phones this time.

They didn’t say when iOS 13 will come out. Little sloppy on Apple’s part

disagreed. sleep cycles work better for 3 am wake ups. you wake up at 3am, place order, go back to sleep

waking up at 5am is terrible. either you go back to sleep for 1 hour and wake up to feel horrible (due to waking up mid sleep cycle) or stay up after waking up which is still awful.

apple should have made it 3am pacific. waking up at 6am for east coast isn't as bad as waking up at 5am. and 3am pacific guys can go back to sleep with enough time to complete another sleep cycle.
