How disappointing that you need to buy the Pro Max to get the best camera. I simply can't have a screen that large.

makes no sense to not include a charging brick when they include a new cable that if you have an iphone won't plug into your existing charging bricks

No plug
No ear buds
smaller packaging
cheaper shipping
less pieces to manufacturer = Apple saving money but not the consumer. Shame on them.

Faster processor, better camera, and more storage for same price.
They do that every year. They should have been ashamed of themselves for offering 64 GB on a pro labeled device also.

I know the difference between bits and bytes when it comes to Apple:

"Bits" are what Apple takes away from every new product release of very same product. They take away the earphone jack, then the power adapter, then the physical home button, the "opening the package experience" (so many YouTubers will really be missing that one!), a little bit here, and little bit there.... adds up to Lots of Bits.

"Bytes" is what I say to Apple with every new release that takes away one or more of many favorite features (or forces a lame, buggy major update on you): "Oh, that bytes!" "Byte me, Apple!"
