There's another thread up for pre-keynote, but having watched the announcements, has that changed your intentions?

The only tempting thing for me is the pricing and larger base storage capacity, otherwise, I'm still on the fence as the 13 Mini really is a hard sell for me as someone who was fairly happy with the 12 Mini.

What are you doing?

Love my green iPhone 12 and saw nothing big enough to get me to go for the 13. Im in love with the new iPad mini though. Just ordered one and keeping my 12 another year. The 14 is the one to get and SHOULD have been the iPhone announced today. This is in reality a 12s. Pass.

Still not 100% sure but think I'm going to try and pick up a cheaper, second hand 128GB/256GB iPhone 12 Mini and use the reduced 13 Mini prices (here in the UK pricing is £20 less this year), as well as the fact the 13 starts at 128GB as leverage to get a better deal.

If I was going to go for the 13 Mini it'd be a 128GB in Starlight, but there was so little there to persuade me straight away.

13 pro and 13 mini both look like excellent devices at the top of their respective segments. If money was no object, I would go for the pro for the camera improvements.

is the graphite on the 13 Pro going to be the same as the graphite on the 12? Was really looking forward to the "jet black" but if that's not the case I'll probably get gold or the new blue

Hey, you stole my thread. Only kidding. ;)

I'm going to go with the Mini. This update included basically everything I hoped for - longer battery life, smaller notch, X60 modem, increased storage/lower price, and even a brighter display.

The longer battery life, 1000 nits, and ProMotion display of the Pro models is tempting, but with this being the last year of the Mini (most likely), and with me wanting to downsize my XS Max for 2 years now, I think I have to go with the Mini. If I don't like it, I can always sell it and upgrade to the 2022 iPhone next year.

Now, to figure out which color to get the Mini in. 🤔

I like that they increased the telephoto to 3x but then the f stop is 2.8 which is pretty lame. ProMotion sounds awesome but as someone who mainly texts and uses a browser to look up info I don’t really see a huge need for it. I thought about getting a 13 mini which after trade in would close me like $58. And that’s just because I want a smaller phone than the pro max I have. But I just don’t think I wanna deal with all the setup and headache just for that. I think these new phones are great for people coming from older models or real pros. But for me…not enough to upgrade. I’m really excited for iOS 15 though

not sure but probably 13 PM blue. I'am afraid, that i can miss the bigger display, because I always had the bigger models. What disappointed me is no big difference between 13pro vs PM
