I went in this year thinking I'd buy a bunch of stuff but ended up buying nothing. Things I was waiting for:
- iPhone SE replacement. I wanted an iPhone X with the SE size. Didn't happen. Needs to happen.
- ARM based laptop without a fan, lightweight, cellular capable. Running Mac OS X.
- Improved AirPods.
- Improved Apple Watch that isn't bigger and so expensive.
this is not spam
Still waiting on iPhone SE and iPad mini updates. Bigger is not always better, I’ll use a larger iPad at home or Mac but want portable when on the go.
+ independent calling function (smile cross-country project) - premium pricing
+ wireless AirPods
+ internet woki toki
+ SIRI commands
+ heath function
+ battery last all day (FPGA ?, c-state(calling,time) powe saving ? detachable battery band ? ... )
+ transportation pass, store payment functions, auto smartkey ...
- category overlap
I voted for HomePod as I have 3 of them, but I have the top 4 on the list also.
IPhone is my favorite products from Apple in year 2018.
The Mac Mini was the most appreciated release (for me), but Apple’s in the hole, and severely out of touch with what longtime users want. As far as iOS goes, it’s boring AF without being able to jailbreak.
