Yeah it's clearly meant to primarily be a high-end speaker rather than just a simple Amazon Echo/Google Chrome competitor. The audiophiles are loving it and some of the tech in it sounds really cool.

I'd be interested in getting one if it had proper Spotify integration but a lot of the features sound far too limited just now.

How much do Iphones depreciate in value? I happen to have a way to get a Cheap iPhone X for a little bit off RRP.

If I bought this now, and sold it in July, still in its box unopened. Would it be worth a lot less? Baring in mind the retail price of an iphone X is 1150 for the best design. I would probably be aiming to sell it for £1000 on ebay or facebook marketplace as brand new (or here).

Sorry if this has been a topic before but has anyone got a pair of the Apple AirPods? And if so would you recommend them? My main concern would be if they are the exactly the same shape as the standard ones below

Image

Because those ones don’t seem to fit my ear very fell and fall out especially if I’m moving fast, obviously It’s ok because they are attached my the wire but without I wouldn’t want to lose them, the other ones I use are some Sennheiser ones I got from Germany, they never fall out but are rubberised

I have AirPods. They fit me better than the standard ones because they are slightly heavier so the weight makes then stay in your ear. Additionally without the wires tugging against them they are less likely to fall out.
I wear them to the gym and they are fine not the treadmill or when I'm lying down on a bench.

The only time they fell out was when I had my coat on, zipped right up the collar of my coat would hit them out of my ear.

Have you considered the BeatsX? They're wireless and the buds are very similar to the Sennheiser ones in that pic. They come with different sizes of them too as well as extra clip things to stop them falling out of your ear. They've got the same W1 chip as the AirPods too so pairing them with your phone, iPad, Mac etc is just the same.

Thanks for the replies, I checked out the BestsX ones and they seem pretty good, the AirPods definitely look better visually

You should be able to sell it for around the RRP since it'll be brand new. The price would only really go down once the new iPhone is out in September/October.

Do you think the new iPhone 9 be a downgrade on the iPhone X and do you think we will get a new iPod Touch?

It'll probably have the usual better processor and stuff. Not sure what they're going to do this year with the numbered models. The 7 and 8 both just felt like iterations of the 6 and they skipped naming the 8 the 7s. You'd think they'd want to get rid of the home buttons and have all there models have a full screen on the front like the X as soon as possible but I can't see them doing that unless they can get the cost down to the same price point and the non-X phones. It'll probably just be the predictable:

8s and 8s Plus
Xs and Xs Plus (the price of this would be :dread:)

I'm surprised they haven't discontinued the iPod Touch yet. Could see that happening in the next few years.

I keep thinking they may release a retro style iPod or an anniversary model

This year we're expecting 3 iPhones, right?

I think the iPhone 8 will be the last iPhone of the "classic" design style we've seen since the 6, they'll all be notch-y. Not sure how I feel about the design, to be honest.

From April Apple are requiring all new apps to support the X's screen size so that could be a sign they're moving towards that this year. There's also rumours of the 8s (or whatever it'll be called) still having the normal LCD screens and the OLED being kept for the newer X. It's time they got rid of the huge bezels on all their phones because they're really stating to look daft.

In other new I've been offered a 64GB X from a mate's corporate perks thing for a "decent" price. Very tempted :slol:

In which case give Google Fit a look, it does location and stuff I believe. (if it exists, I think it does but I dont have an iPhone so can't be 100%)

I assume its the same on Apple, but Google Maps has a timeline feature which shows you where you were, how long you were there, the roads you went on to get to your destination, how long the wall took etc.
