Hey

I'll recieve my iPhone Xs tomorrow. I'm pretty excited. However, I have been having some buyers remorse as of today because of this:

I updated my iPhone 7 to iOS 12 this afternoon and my god has it made the phone fast, the difference is insane. It's so snappy now, and with touch ID it's just working flawless.

So... I'm worried the Xs will be a downgrade when it comes to real world usage, and my biggest worry is FaceID not being fast enough? I just can't see how it would compete with the speed of TouchID.

I know this sounds ridiculous, but can anyone help convince me that this is indeed worth it.
Money isn't the issue, it's just the ease of use I'm worried about. Add some OCD to that and that gives you this thread.

Many thanks!

After using face id since I got my X on launch day last year it has become so convenient that I honestly don't think you could pay me to go back to touch ID.

I'm sure you will be fine it's a big upgrade from your 7.

Why do you need convinced of anything? You’ll know tomorrow if you like it or not. If you don’t? Return it.

I love FaceID, and I have no desire to go back to TouchID or to a Home button. I also love the swipe gesture interface. No one can convince you. You have 14 days to try it out: you should have a good idea whether you like it or not within that time period. Give it the full two weeks.

A fresh battery and iOS 12 update and my 6s has a new lease on life. Looking forward to the Xs however.

It seems your sub-conscious mind has convinced yourself to keep your iPhone 7. (It's amazing what out inner thoughts tells us which we never pay attention to. Learning to trust that inner voice will help save you money on therapy)
