What do you think? I was considering upgrading my 6, but I might hold off..I keep waffling.. ?
I think the new processor and brighter screen are pretty compelling!
I‘ve waited for years to upgrade because there wasn’t enough in a single year to make the leap.
But I’m really impressed with the 9 from what I’ve seen and read.

Still looking for an answer. My car has USB-A for CarPlay/charging. Will I be able to utilize USB-A to USB-C for CarPlay/charging?
Yeah, why not
