    Will be watching the keynote as always. It's a mid-lifecycle refresh. The X is such a milestone, there's only going to be incremental improvements plus more colours, bigger capacity, marginally better all sorts.

    I doubt I'll be rushing to upgrade as I'm still thrilled with my X (and given I took it in for a complete hardware replacement last week, my X is less than a week old), although I do have the option to upgrade annually with my phone contract.

    What I was fearing is a new HomePod and new AppleTV as I've only recently got these, and am very happy with those too, but was reluctant given there might be new ones, but honestly there's been barely any rumours of either, so it's seeming unlikely. Kuo has mentioned nothing of them either. To be honest, I don't know what they could improve upon with a 4K HDR10 & Dolby Vision / Atmos supporting ATV...

    Leaks were true about the series 4 watch. :)

    Bigger screens, fall detection (and if unresponsive, SOS), Electrocardiogram, FDA and AHA approved.

    I don’t have the first one or a 3G but probably have a 4, 5, 6, 7 and X around and a drawer full of boxes.

    I did, but unfortunately my wife lost my iPhone 5. My youngest is using my 4.

    As said I'll pass on the Ten S, but my mrs who's got an 8 Plus because she prefers a bigger phone, but it's inferior to the X in many ways, the XS Max (not sure why they changed from the Plus nomenclature?) is perfect for her, so she'll be upgrading to that, especially now there's a girly colour. :D

    She's also still on a series 1 watch, whereas I've the series 3, so she'll likely get that too.

    The Xr seems like a reinvention of the 5C philosophy, but done better. The 5C was horribly cheaply made, but put an iOS device in your hand for not a lot of money.

    The Xr is the aluminium body similar to the 8, in the design of the X (and new Xs). The main let down is it's an LCD not OLED. Although it's cheaper than the 8 was and gets Face ID and the same edge to edge bezel-less design as the X.

    The 7 is now the bottom of the range, the 6s is gone, so the 7 is now cheaper too.

    Most :)

    3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S, 6, 6S, 7, X

    Missed the original, and skipped 8 as it was launched at the same time as the X. Never had a “plus” either as they’re physically too big for little old me. I think every single one is in use too, except the 5 which was my least favourite. My favourite was the 6S, followed by 4S, both were as good as their successor which is the mark of a very good phone.

    This is the first launch where the smaller one has all the same specs, cameras, etc as the “plus” now called “max”.

    The X was and is perfect for me, size wise. I had an SE before because I like a small phone too.
    The X makes sense because it’s not hugely bigger, but the display is.

    The new one, and its bigger brother are both identical spec wise, except the bigger one has a bigger battery as there’s more room for it, and it’s powering a bigger display.

    Now you get to choose the size, without losing out on specs.

    Mmmm!

    I have recently purchased an iPhone 8 Plus for myself, it’s about 2 months old but I have been talking myself into buying an X.

    My wife still has an iPhone 5S so I guess she will get my current phone as an upgrade.

    I’m sure that’s what you mean, but it’d be a Xs now. The X is no longer available new from Apple. It’s been replaced, rather than stepped down a notch in the range.

    Either way, go for it. It’s been the best iPhone I’ve had by miles. No other phone from any manufacturer feels as high end in the hand. It makes my Mrs 8 Plus feel old and cheap by comparison.
