I got the ones from Costco.  Works like a champ.

Got one today.  Actually two.  My phone just shipped, but the GF is using it on hers and it seems to work great. Thanks.

Just got the SE delivered.  In the middle of setup process now.  It's noice that my existing cases fit so I don't have to buy another one of the expensive fuckers.

question about the phone I'm retiring:  Is it still S.O.P. to drain the battery completely before sticking it in a drawer somewhere?

I charge my old one periodically in case I need it for a backup.  Don't know if that's SOP or not.  I think they like it better when they have a charge.

Really tempted by the new SE but the batter capacity appears noticeably less than my Xr. Kinda a bummer as I loved the original SE

So, Apple said that you get like 12 hours of video from the new SE.

Meanwhile, after using my phone today for about 12 hours, including listening to music over Bluetooth and headphones I’m at 10% battery

here is what Anandtech said about it, it's much less than the XR in their tests (12.95 vs 10.7)

In terms of battery life, the iPhone SE is said to perform similarly to the iPhone 8. Apple here employs a much newer and more efficient SoC in the form of the A13, while retaining the same battery capacity and display panel as the older phone. In essence, what we’re testing here is merely Apple’s calibration of the iPhone SE’s A13 chip in terms of its performance vs energy usage. Naturally of course, the new SE will have a more efficient cellular and WiFi chip as well which will contribute to the efficiency of the device.

In our web browsing test that we were able to run overnight, the iPhone SE confirms Apple’s claims of it matching the iPhone 8, and we’re essentially getting near identical results at 10.7h vs 10.4h, only a few minutes apart difference between the two devices.

We had noted in our iPhone 11 review that Apple’s battery life marketing claims oddly matched the results in our web test, and this again is the case for the new iPhone SE.

Whilst the iPhone SE isn’t able to match the longevity of the iPhone 11’s, it’s still a reasonably good result considering the battery capacity and size of the phone.

I had a fucking nightmare today.  

My mom has been using androids, and can never figure shit out on them.  She's constantly calling me asking how to do something.    She was bitching the other day about something wrong with her phone, so I ordered her an SE.

So, today I'm using the app to migrate all the contacts, photos, etc over from the android to the iphone.  It doesn't work.  I try everything.  I search the web for answers, and still, nothing works.

So, I call applecare.  I went through 3 people there, and nobody could figure it out.   Finally, I pulled my old 6 out of the drawer, powered it up, wiped it clean, and then tried doing the migration with it instead of the SE.   Easy as pie, smooth as silk.  15 minutes later, all my mom's shit was on my old 6.  Then, I wipe her new SE, and set it up using the 6 and the iOS to iOS dealie.  Again, smooth as silk.   Finally, it's done.

just did this for my mom too actually - had issues, google'd found a bunch of crap, restarted, disconnected/reconnected to wifi and it finally worked, just took like 4 hours (!!!)

Yeah Apple’s transfer process is hot garbage. I’ve gotten stuck in loops even going from iPhone to iPhone.

How much does the price on the previous year's model typically drop when they announce the new year's model?  Thinking about a 11pro when they announce the 12 this fall.

I'm far from poor.  From what i've read the 12 isn't going to have much over the 11.  If I can save a few hundred by waiting a month or two to upgrade, I can spend that one something else. like hookers.

I'm strongly considering upgrading my 128GB phone to a new SE 64GB.  With all the music and photos I have, I'm still hovering around 40GB.  How slow do they start to run when you get up to ~50GB or so on a 64GB unit?  And yes, I am bragging about my current phone being an iPhone 7.  'Cause I'm pimp like that.

Got it, don't know what site I was looking at but it looked like $150 difference.  Yeah, $50 more for the amount of the videos of the kids I take, makes sense.  Thanks.

 My mother has an iPhone and I don't know shit about them. She saw me use Google Lens to identify a plant in her yard and now she has to have that for her phone. Is this built in to the camera, or is there a free app that works well for this?  

iPhone Xr

you can use Google Photos - take the photo, open it up in Google Photos then on the bottom there are 4 icons, a share icon (box w/ arrow pointing up), settings, the Google Lens icon in black and white and trash can.

she wants the third over from the left (Lens)

I have an iPhone 8 that’s running slow and apps are frequently crashing. I’m tempted to upgrade to the iPhone 11 Pro. Any reason I should hold out for the iPhone 12?

12 will supposedly have 5G. Doesn't really matter right now but if you plan to keep the phone a long time that might come into play.

12 may also be a little cheaper, if rumors are true.

Have you tried doing a backup and restore on your 8 first? That fixes a lot of "slow device" issues.

At this point there is zero reason to buy an 11 Pro - it is going to be significantly cheaper (used) in the next few months once the new line comes out.

I'd recommend starting from scratch on your phone maybe?
