    iPhone 11 iPhones with Intel cellular modems, your experiences?

    We're looking at getting a family member an inexpensive iPhone (still running iOS 16 or newer). From my own experience with an iPhone SE 2020 (dropped calls, WiFi constantly disconnecting), I question if Intel cellular modems aren't as robust as Qualcomms, as far as sensitivity, range, etc...

    iPhone X can't run iOS 17, but 6th gen iPad can run iPadOS 17.

    So the A11 is apparently not strong enough for iOS according to Apple: (iPhone X has 3GB, A11) But the 6th gen iPad, an A10 with only 2GB Ram also gets iPadOS 17: Doesn't Make sense, if A10 iPad can do lock screen customizations, why couldn't the iPhone 7 do it? The same applies to the 8 and...

    iPhone 8(+) iPhone 8 or X?

    Hi all, I recently lost my iPhone XR and need to get a new phone. I've decided that I will either get the Gold iPhone 8 or the Silver iPhone X. I know all the differences and that the X is obviously better, but my budget is tight and I can get the 8 for around $100 less. Which should I get?

    iOS 16 on older iPhones

    Hi, I just wanted to share my (positive) experience with iOS 16 on my iPhone 8. I was a bit scared due to the nightmare experience that the switch from iOS 14 to iOS 15 was for me. With iOS 15 the system became much slower and I also had often bugs like the phone not responding. A major...
