I've been waiting on the next evolution of the iphone since the X and looks like i'm going to be waiting a bit longer judging by the rumour mill.

I need a new laptop, so I'm interested in the new Macbooks (rumored 14" and the 16"), but I don't that'll be covered in today's event.

My X is knackered. My wife’s 6S is really knackered.

So I’ll buy two, but I suspect next year is where it gets different.

Don't see the point in caring about the latest iPhone these days when anyone can buy a £150 Huawei or Xiaomi phone that does everything just as well. All smartphones end up lasting around the same amount of time unless you go through the process of getting the battery replaced (and who does, really?). Can't see myself getting excited over a £1200 phone.

My wife's 6S was knackered so we got her a 12 with 128meg.
My 6 is even more knackered and I will replace it with a (hopefully now) reduced price 12. Not interested in what the 13 has to offer, only its downward pressure on the 12 pricing.
I expect to be able to use the 12 equally as long as I have managed with the 6, if not longer actually.

There is very little innovation these days across all the manufacturers, probably hasn't been for a good few years.

I'm knackered, but think I may splash out on my first ever Apple watch.

Not 100% sure it's very good value for money, but if one can't indulge oneself a little occasionally what is the point of getting so knackered ?

Cruel trick to launch it but then leave it vague as to when it will be available.

Good bit of kit (although there not a whole lot of upgrades over the 6, if you fancy saving a few quid)

The trick with an Apple device is not to use a banking app on it. Otherwise, it knows when you can afford to buy a new Apple device.

I actually need a new phone but was a little underwhelmed this time around.

Can anyone here actually convince me in favour of the new iPhone?

Unless you want a better camera, slightly faster processor and a bit longer battery life over the 12 what’s the point ?

It's a valid point, but on the basis that I dont think many people upgrade every time there's new iPhone to be had, but continue to use their iPhone for many years, you might be able to make a case for buying the highest spec'ed phone to give it a bit of extra longevity.
Having said that, the difference between a 12 and a 13 isn't big enough for me to shell out the extra for a 13 over a 12.

See for me it is, it’s only £50 difference. Though I suppose if you don’t need the increase in storage and can get away with the lower base storage in the 12 then the gap in price is bigger.

But that is the genius/evil of Apple, isn't it ? Human nature is to want the best and a fear being left behind. Now I'm happy to leave it 2-3 years between 'phone upgrades, because I see little point in upgrading unless there is a significant new feature (last done to get dual-SIM capability, so I could have both work & personal numbers on one 'phone), but in buying a new watch I can't resist buying the newest.

You are, of course, right that a 6 would do everything I want, but I admit that I am being Appled ...

I see that, having started the thread, James couldn't be arsed to return to it, so he's answered his own question in the original post.
