    We're minutes away and Apple premium 1000$ phones anyone planning to buy them? I think It's only matter of years that their basic phones start from 1k, but if it's just a minor camera and chip update then it's makes no sense right?, anyone up watching the live event?

    Short answer, no. Don't get sucked into the Apple ecosystem. You're better than that.

    Not so much of a Apple fan. After iphone 7 it's pretty much is just new body and a bigger price tag, there is no significant improvement in the product itself
    At one time it was the innovation that caught the eye, now its just a brand name!

    I read this model will actually be starting @ $899

    I bought the iPhone 6S and it lasted me until now (~3/4 years), I have found the S models a great improvement from the previous versions.

    Apple is definitely overpriced and more about the aesthetics than actual functionality, but I will definitely be buying the XS as I need a new phone, and a good camera is definitely going to help me in my line of work.
    I dislike Macs, iPads, apple watch, apple TV and everything else apple do apart from their phones.

    I will be watching the event

    Ehh, the big iphones are approaching iPad size, I have the X and love it but it was overpriced.

    I am one of the sheeple so.... Yes I will be buying the new one lol.

    Never got the appeal of iPhones, I only need them simulated for IOS development,

    $1,000 on a phone is just crazy, you get similar performance from a $500 android alternative and a better quality with a $500 camera.

    I was a longtime user for android, but recently just got the x, and I have to say, no home button is really intuitive. However, I wouldn't get the newest one that's about to come out since its not that much of an improvement upon the x

    On the brightside though iphone x will be cheaper, although marginally since its not out of date yet. If you want it cheaper this is where social engineering with your service provider comes in

    No. Price is ridiculous for a limited upgrade from the 6s!

    Same can be said for the upcoming Samsung S10. IT IS A PHONE. Yes it can be great for other things BUT YOU ARE PAYING PREMIUM for either a name or latest tech. Then again, we have been doing that for nearly 50 years in tech now!

    Maybe that is why Apple are going lower market today.

    Personally, I got myself a boxed, unopened, never used 6S today for £90. Pretty happy with that.

    My 3g lasted 2 years, 4s lasted 5 years, currently on a 6s that's starting to malfunction after 2 years. I'll strongly consider a newer model.
