I think the 6s is covered by the $29 battery replacement program.

they're gonna skip the 8th gen Intel CPUs and let the MacBook keyboard thing fester for another year+ while they redesign everything aren't they

IIRC it has the same dual-core CPU as the series 2, so you're probably fine.

I dunno I have the series 1 and while it’s a perfectly fine watch I am curious to see the speed on the 3. Not that the 1 is slow but Ive has it for 2 years and I’m ready for the new model. And the Apple Music thing is cool on 3. I keep hearing that the 4 is going to be a huge upgrade so I might wait for that

The other day I was talking with someone looking to upgrade their phone and thinking about it I sorta realized I'm happier with the X than any iPhone since like the 4s when I upgraded from a flip phone. It's not anything in particular, and there aren't any major leaps from the 7, which is what I had, but the whole operating system just works really smoothly, once I adjusted to the loss of the home button the swipe up function is way more intuitive and ergonomic and when I pick up an old phone it feels clunky to have to hit a button every time you want to switch between things. The size is perfect and the OLED screen is beautiful.

Anyone else feel similarly?

I definitely feel the same about my X. I was just telling a friend of mine that I was embarrassed by how much I love it.

No home button plus FaceID really makes it feel like I don't have to do anything to make it work.

I'm 98% with FaceID working, against my 75% with touch ID, especially after my hands were sweaty or holding the phone wrong.

Yeah Face ID works remarkably well in my experience, even with sunglasses and off-center in the car (don't wear hats).

Touch ID was good, and for things like lying down and just reaching over to check a notification or something it was better, but for everything else I feel Face ID is way better.

Also love how it hides the notification content until Face ID recognizes you and then displays it without you having to swipe start

Haven't thought about a headphone jack in awhile tbh. Just keep the dongle attached to my go to buds and that's as much effort as it's taken thus far.
