    iPhone XS Opinion: Do you think 13 Pro is a big change from a XS?

    I've been using an iPhone XS since early 2019, and it's been a great phone. It was an incremental upgrade at the time, but the A12 has held up really well, and the revisions from the 2018 models seem to have ended up being the prerequisite for many of the later software features that would come...

    Third party screen issues

    I just had my cracked iPhone XS’ screen replaced by a third party repair shop.

Does Apple refuse to service iPhones that have...

    iPhone XS iPhone XS Touch Screen Not Working

    My just over two year old iPhone XS' touch screen is regularly becoming unresponsive. To me it seems highly coincidental with the iOS 14 update but I don't know how to be sure of that, it's just a hunch. The screen sometimes starts working again but other times not. Often it begins working again...

    Downgrade from iOS 14.2 Beta prior to new phone?

    Wondering if there is an easy way to downgrade from iOS 14.2 Beta on my iPhone XS prior to picking up my iPhone 12 Pro next Friday? What are the chances that Apple will add iPhone 12 devices to beta prior to October 23rd?

    Is the S in iPhone 3GS, 4S, 5S, 6S, XS, XS Max Capitalized? On Wikipedia it shows that after the iPhone 4S it becomes lowercased. Just wondering.

    An accessory for your X, XS, XS Max?? More like a "Halloween Costume" 😆😐

    I swear, I knew someone would create these! Ok, so this fake sticker/attachment turns your "old, outdated" looking iPhone into the current design. May fool a few I guess. But I already see the major flaw after sticking this on your older phones, dust and dirt getting UNDER the sticker...
