Yes, the FaceID scanner is a 3D scanner.
The new Mac Pro has up to 30 MB of cache inside the processor itself. That's more than the HD in my first Mac. Somehow I'm still running out of space.

Pretty sure that I said the exact same thing on the previous page.

Anyway,

As far as Apple's "Embrace the notch," I think that Apple got enough brushback to change their mind already
http://english.etnews.com/20180307200001
"Apple decided to get rid of notch design starting from 2019 models and is having discussions with relevant companies," said a representative for an industry. "It seems that Apple is planning to implement full-screen that is more complete to its new iPhones."

Yeah I'll be keeping my SE for another two years, then we'll see where the notch and the more-annoying PWM is at by then.

If they can hide the cameras and earpiece under the screen, bravo.

I like the notch, but not enough to keep it if given the choice.

Well I couldn't help it. Changed my mind and am much happier with the X. Actually a billing error worked out in my favor so I gave the SE back (an infrequent opportunity indeed)

Also enjoying wireless charging in my car.

Speaking of opportunities... this was shot on an iPhone X, color balance adjusted in Photos

I’ll be all over the X Plus (or whatever they call it) come this September.

After the whole boondoggle I had with my 5s battery failing, I'd hoped that a "new" one (refurb as a replacement) would feel faster/better. It did not. And with the (PRODUCT) RED version of the 8 on the shelf now, my wife and I stepped into the current decade and then some.

We now both have the iPhone 8, hers in red and mine in Space Gray, and it's amazing how much faster, better, and smoother it is than the 5s. Yes, I know it's all about a much more capable processor, and probably a faster clock, etc., but the experience of using it is what surprises me. It's responsive to the point that it feels like a fast desktop computer - at least compared to the 5s.

There are some interesting differences that are taking some getting used to. The sleep button on the side, for example. I have to pay attention to not touch a volume button when I try to put the phone to sleep, or it just doesn't sleep. And the Home button, even though it's so much more responsive than the mechanical button I was used to.

Finally, the display is bigger. Yep. But it's also so much clearer, thanks to Retina technology and a MUCH higher resolution. I don't squint at browser pages as much, and I can make out a lot more detail, even when the screen is in direct sun.

I'm looking forward to playing with the camera too. I'm glad we waited, but I'm glad we finally moved on this.
