    My wife and daughter have 12s. I think they are getting bells and whistles that would be a waste for me. My SE does everything I’d want.

    No question mine and my son’s 6S both suddenly used significantly more battery (could literally watch the percentage charge drop 1% or more per min) after update to iOS 14, reported fixes did not help but always keeping it in low power mode was somewhat beneficial.

Every time I got a new phone it started working great again for a year or two and there was no incentive to upgrade. It went on that way for at least 6+ years until I finally just upgraded.. it’s been so long that I can’t even remember how long I had that model iPhone any longer.
    They did slow down phones. They got fined. Problem is that these fines are a rounding error for most companies. $113 million fine.. Make it $1billion and maybe you'll stop shady practices

I had assumed that was some "update" from apple designed to get people to upgrade their old phones...

    My 6S was freezing up every time I took a photo. I got a 12 not pro and plan to keep it for years.

    Have had an Xr for about a year. Works perfectly and is a good bang for your buck model. It should last me several more years.

    Got a 12 pro a couple weeks ago. Battery has been awesome and a huge improvement from my last phone.

    Yes. I had the battery replaced under their battery program and the battery still sucked even if the battery showed it was operating at 100% capacity. I was always having to plug my phone in all the time.

    Went from 6S to 12 mini, screen size bigger and battery life tremendously improved.
    without transferring to a different carrier or adding a line Walmart was the cheapest for Verizon
