    Apple Event

    Well what I have seen so far is pretty poor. Nothing amazingly special.

    When they announce a new iPhone and only the 4th point they can make about it is, it "holds its value more than any other smartphone" you know they are scraping the bottom of the barrel

    Perhaps. Or, they don't see the need to release anything new, as nothing else is much challenging them, so why outdate their own stuff?

    That said, me = not an Apple person. I have exactly one bit of Apple kit (iPad Pro) and have had even that barely over a month. It's also a previous generation machine (M1 chip), despite being brand new because I didn't see any real advantage (beyond maybe 10% on CPU speed over a chip that is already damn fast) from the newer M2 chip, yet it would've added about £1000 to the price for otherwise matching spec. No brainer, to me.

    I'm just saying that releasing a ho-hum 'upgrade' because they don't feel a need to do more wouldn't be the first time for Apple.
