    From what I understand, it is NOT a good idea buy 3rd party power adapters as only Apple power adapters charge them with the correct voltage as it is patented. Third party power adapters either charge it with too much or too little voltage which will eventually shorten the battery life.

    I have the iPhone 7 and I was thinking of getting the mini because it is smaller and I figured it would be easier for me to hold than the 12. Also to fit in my jeans pockets since they make woman's pockets so small. I am having battery life problems now with my 7. So hmmm now I'm not sure which iphone I should get.

    I have an iPhone 7 at the moment and want to upgrade. I am trying to decide between the 12 and 12 Pro. I need 128GB because I take a lot of photos and videos and there is only a £150 difference then. So would the Pro be worth it? Because if I can spend £1000 now, then it would be worth waiting for the 13 Pro with Pro Motion. But I also don't want to spend £1000 on a phone. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

    The biggest mistake for IPhone 11 Pro Max users is to buy any of them, it’s the same phone with a slightly better camera and processor that you won’t even notice without a bench mark, colors well it’s going to be what ever color case you put on it, MagSafe, still nothing new, Pitaka had it two years ago, IPhone 11 Pro Max MagEZ case, MagEZ charging stand, instant MagSafe and it actually fast charges.

    um no. You should consider the iphone 11 pro models. I would not consider the standard iphone 11, but the 11 pros have the same screen (close enough) and basically the same cameras. Not every one is a tech junky. The iphone 11 models BLOW OUT the iphone 12 mmodels in battery life by AT LEAST 2 hours. If you want a cheaper, same screen, very similar cameras, and incredible battery life, get the iphone 11 pro models unless apple makes an update to the iphone 12 models to improve the battery life because it is terrible.

    This was such a useful video to chose my new iPhone this year. I was so convinced that the iPhone 12 pro was gonna be way better than the 12 but it’s really not. The colors might look better and for me the better looking camera style were the only reasons why I preferred the iPhone 12 pro but they are pretty dumb reasons to waste $200+ just for that and sum other changes.
