How disappointing that you need to buy the Pro Max to get the best camera. I simply can't have a screen that large.

Then I would question how long you’ve been following Apple, as This has been Apples method of operation for years. What would you expect them to do otherwise to sell the largest, most expensive iPhone? Of course they will ration certain exclusive features to the ‘Pro’ phones, it’s not just Apple, almost every tech manufacturer has similar marketing strategies to sell the most expensive device.

is the iPhone 12 <all four of them> the the least interesting iPhone release in history?
There was no excitement at all. This is the new iPhone, and its slightly bigger than the old one, with squared edge that we offered years ago, and we have blue. Oh, and there is a clip on card for the back that is currently already made by other companies on clearance at TJ maxx.

I know the difference between bits and bytes when it comes to Apple:

"Bits" are what Apple takes away from every new product release of very same product. They take away the earphone jack, then the power adapter, then the physical home button, the "opening the package experience" (so many YouTubers will really be missing that one!), a little bit here, and little bit there.... adds up to Lots of Bits.

"Bytes" is what I say to Apple with every new release that takes away one or more of many favorite features (or forces a lame, buggy major update on you): "Oh, that bytes!" "Byte me, Apple!"

Does anyone know what the extra “connector” on the side below the power button is for? Did they even talk about it?

Wondering what's the difference between delayed pre-ordering and delayed shipment, why not just pre-order the same day and ship later.
