Still sporting the 64GB XS Max. I’ll be making the last payment this month. I will evaluate my options in a month or so, I may go Pro Max.

Im not getting a new one any time soon (still on an 8 here) but the 12 mini actually looks like something I might get.

New HomePod mini as well, cheap enough to almost be an impulse purchase. If only I didn’t already have like 4 different portable speakers for my phone.
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.

The 12mini is only slightly smaller than my 8 - although with edges more screen. Kid is ready for a real phone but prefers a smaller phone that is easier to carry. SEv2 is the same size as the 8, basically.

RIP small phones.

It’s about 5% smaller. If it had been made in the style of the iPhone 6-7-8, it would be a 4.4-4.5” phone or so. That is positively minuscule today. I don’t think they will make anything smaller in ever.

Also realized that Apple is saving me from HomePod mini impulse purchases by not launching it here

iPhone 12 product Red looks like the sweet spot for me. Don't need above base storage never got near the 64 on my XR. Have been using a spare 7 for the last 4 months waiting for Apple to launch these after my XR got melted in the car fire. It was sooo bad that I nearly gave in and pulled the trigger on an 11. Now I'm glad I managed to hold off.
In the UK its offered with 36 monthly payments so these things creep up. Happier with 24 really. 36 is pushing the phones operational window I would have though, but of course that's the plan I'm sure.

I much prefer the return to the flatter design ethic, always liked the 4/5 design so this is a win win for me.
Roll on Friday!

Just when I had decided I'd be fine with my X indefinitely, they go and release the 12 mini. 1/2" shorter and 1/4" narrower is a huge deal. The screen isn't that much smaller, and it'd pocket so much better. Seeing what my X is worth on Craigslist now...
edit: If I could get $400 for the X, then floating $350 for a 12 mini 128GB isn't that bad...
