27 January 2021
Previously, the analyst said that Apple "may" add 6E support, but now things sound a lot more certain.

..."will support, will have"...
I believe Iphone users have heard that too many times over the years.
IP12 still doesn't have A LOT of thing that the people thought they'll be getting and it'll be another years before they will.
That's if ever, since apple is recently removing more components, rather than adding.

Now I actually have a phone with one because I came to it for other reasons and it just happened to have one and I couldn't give two farts about it anymore. It'll be great when we'll all have just seamless edge to edge displays, but I really just don't give a damn. And if notch is not a problem, I think I could easily live with teardrop, punch hole or whatever.

[deleted post]What choice? All Android phones suck at things that are the biggest problem with Android itself (crappy updating support, terrible segmented updates releases that can take months for same update between different countries/regions or device segments, absurd OS version fragmentation etc). All they do is smear some different lipstick on them and push them on the market. You're just choosing among bunch of different covers/skins within fundamentally broken ecosystem. I seem to be in minority apparently, but for me it's a big deal. I can ignore a lot of Apple specific annoyances when this part is done right and it's done right with Apple.

Just yesterday iOS 14.4 arrived. I've seen the news about it and upon checking, it was there. That same moment. You know how this goes with EVERY Android phone? First you hear news about new version. Then you have 150 people asking for what region it is and then you have 50 people who say they've been running it for a week already and then it takes weeks of waiting while everyone around you seem to be getting update except you. And after few more weeks of waiting, you finally get the update. Which was released like 2 months ago. Or if you're unlucky, after waiting for months, you read new leaks about it where your specific version of device gets excluded from updates entirely. Been there, seen that. Several times. I was so fed up with this crap I literally jumped ship to iOS over night. Apple updating is literally the exact opposite and my god I wish Android adopts this one day. Preferably sooner than later. Might return to Android then. But until that happens, pretty much unlikely unless Apple does something really absurd with other things. And even then I'd probably really rethink if returning to Android is worth it.

As for WiFi 6E thing people are getting hyped so hard about. WiFi 6 is AX standard. 6E is evolution of WiFi 6. It offers support for 6GHz band and additional channels. And that's about it. To utilize that you first need super fast internet connection at home, then you need actual router with WiFi 6E support and then a phone with WiFi 6E support. Lets just say most users don't have any of these 3 things. And even if you satisfy 1 or 2 out of 3 conditions, you're not really utilizing it well. It'll be great for early adopters who meet all 3 conditions because their networks won't have to fight for frequencies with other networks for quite a while. But many won't be able to meet all 3 for a long time, even if you can easily buy latest router and latest phone, your landline infrastructure might not be capable and then you're left at mercy of the ISP to provide fiber optics with such speeds. You'd be shocked how many people are still on copper and how many fiber optics are some weird split mishmash with bunch of people stuck on same nodes.

That does take extra space. Where others have up there just front facing camera, speaker and I'm assuming microphone within speaker unit for noise cancellation most likely, iPhones have Flood illumination, IR camera and dot projector as extras. That's not something you can just tuck somewhere. Making it smaller wouldn't solve anything because it would still be there and being there in a thicker form gives space for signal and battery indicators that are always there. It's why I think Apple is in no hurry to get rid of notch because of this until they can really place all of these under the display. Including speaker itself. Apple might be late to the speaker and camera (and other sensors) under display, but I'm guessing when they'll do it, it'll be done on such level everything else will look like a cheap joke. It's usually how Apple rolls. They rarely half bake things for the sake of exotic new features which is why they seem to stagnate in design. And it's why we haven't seen any swivel and popup cameras on any iPhones. It's quirky and all but something Apple doesn't want to go with. I wouldn't mind popup selfie camera because I never use it so it would just stay hidden, but a lot of people use them and it would probably be the most failing part and no one wants that.

the 13 better not have that ridiculous notch.

Everything New in the Tech World arrives late on iOS.
