Was this an intended pun, or was he talking about it in general?
What was he talking about, the iPhone 6? If so then he was talking out of his rear. Aside from the screen size there isn't a whole load of difference between it and the 5S. Or the iPhone 5 for that matter. Yeah Apple Pay, yeah Touch ID etc. I use neither and my phone has both, so hardly essential or 'game changing'.
What is this in relation to again?
iPhone 6 and 6 plus. He said it at the September event. It's not a deep question by any means, just something that's been nibbling at my brain for a bit. Was it a pun or was he being serious lol
Pun in what sense?
That the 6 and 6 Plus are the "biggest" iPhones now...I guess that is a play on words.
OP is saying, in his opinion, not much advancement, except for the new "biggest" sizes.
Well they are the 'biggest' advancements since iPhone (original). Literally.
Tim Crock says a lot of things.
Biggest "change?"...maybe. Biggest "advancement"...uhh, no.
Lol so it's not a big change because *you* don't use it?
I can understand not using Apple Pay - it is of limited use today - especially if the places where you shop don't support it yet, like all of the world outside of the US so far.
But, I am curious why you don't use TouchID?
To me that was a true advance on the usability of the phone - allowing me to have a complex passcode and NOT be always slowed down by having to key in a long code.
I know that lots of people use those features but they are hardly gamechangers. I just see them as 'features' rather than massive must haves. We're on the second generation of iPhones that have Touch ID...and I still don't use it. I see it as an option and not a necessity. Reading in the newspaper today about how the Galaxy S5 fingerprint reader can be remotely hacked just shows me that it's a potentially dangerous feature. I actually prefer using a 4 digit PIN to unlock my phone because I've been using my phones this way for years and it's second nature to me. Knowing that the Touch ID system is potentially unsafe only makes me feel more comfortable in my choice.
Here is the article, and the story is covered by other newspapers. Nothing is EVER 100% infallible or truly safe.
Well the 6 and 6+ were "bigger".
Looks like he hit the nail on the head
Yes technically it was indeed a pun. It can be considered as such.
More accurately its a marketing slogan intended to imply an exciting evolution in the phone while making a pun about the size in a literal sense at the same time.
So in general it was a layered marketing slogan that contained a pun therein.
At least touch id is more safer than Samsung's fingerprint system.
And btw it's on Android, you should expect less security.
I am so jealous of my wife and her shiny new 5s over my 5c for one or two things.
Firstly Touch ID. Nothing more annoying than typing your password for every app install and its darn quick logging in!
Second the speed with better processor including the movement processor too!
Third- battery life, maybe it's early days but her battery is pretty good!
Roll on November for the iPhone 6!
iPhone 6S you mean ?
