    I think the phone to get is going to be the successor to the X...the one released next year.

    Apple is going to get beat up pretty badly over this year's releases: the boring 8 with bugs, and the X with delays and even more bugs.

    Hold on to your current phones. Wait this cycle out.

    The X has never been delayed and how can you know that it has bugs before it's released?

    Man, this year has inspired the silliest threads.

    By then, the phone to get would be the successor to the XI or whatever naming scheme Apple will implement.

    Not just this year, but in general Jane’s threads. I don’t come often onto MacRumors but even I remember the endless janeauburn threads.

    I think next year's phones will see minor updates to what was offered this year. Nothing major

    It wasn’t delayed in the sense that it had been previously announced and pushed back. It was delayed though. Apple wanted it on September 23rd with the iPhone 8. Anyone who would deny that is simply crazy. So is it technically delayed? No. Was it delayed internally? Yes. Due to manufacturing.

    What Metric are you using to define 'boring' for the iPhone 8? What about the millions of iPhone users that will upgrade to the iPhone 8 from an older iPhone, does that classify it is boring to them, or is just based on your opinion on a tech site.

    Exactly. It will be a more refined version of this years (X). Perhaps a Plus version. Apple love incremental updates and considering they've showcased and are about to release the next generation - they're unlikely to change things in a massive way. Slow brooding progression. I'm not complaining. I think the year ahead will also allow devs and software to catch up and produce a fluid UX.

    Hey OP,

    The 8 Plus isn’t boring. It’s a bad ass phone with the same processor as that one with the notch.

    Some people just say that every year, "wait until the next one". It's not going to stop me from buying the iPhone X and if next years one is significantly better, I'll buy that one too.

    Didn’t know you worked at Apple and had board of director insight on internal delays.

    The current phone has rarely been considered the one to get, except:
    -iPhone 4 - was always slow as a slug
    -iPhone 6 - low ram, it bent, touch disease.

    I am really not sure what the point of threads like this are. Do you just need other peoples approval to justify your decision not to buy this year? You made your decision not to buy the X, that's totally fine, but it doesn't mean you need to try to deter or put down people from making the decision to go with the X. There will be delays like there are every single year, but about 10-20M people will have the X on launch day. And what bugs? You are blindly making things up when bugs can happen to any product released. The 8 has had more bugs than the 7 and nobody is saying that phone is a dud. Lastly, there is no reason someone can't get the X this year, enjoy it, and then get the successor next year. Really, just give it up. Just because you don't want the X doesn't mean someone else is wrong for choosing it. Or vice versa. Make your buying decision and move on.

    How about you let people make their own decisions on what they buy.

    The phone to get will always be around the corner for some. All about want and/or need.

    I am aiming for the SE2 myself. :cool:

    I'll get next year's phone for sure.

    I'm getting this year's X, too. I can wait for next years's phone with an old phone or with a newer, more capable phone. I prefer the later.
