My family had the last Mac able to boot into classic Mac OS (the Power Mac G4 based on design) and it still ran classic Mac OS in 2008 when we finally sent it out to pasture (...somewhere in the attic

We'll see which one. I really loved my iPhone X so whichever one is the same size/premium build from this new lineup.

I was asking about the Android lol. None of the new iPhones will be the same size as your X, unfortunately.

i'm waiting to see the specs on the new macbook processors and i NEED the launch date of the new iphones. My contract is almost up on the one I have now so I'm itching to get a new one. I am a bit annoyed though. I just got a new, really powerful macbook pro last year that I thought would be great for 5 or 6 years, but now I'm afraid apple won't be pushing updates to it for the OS or software as it requires a different programming architecture

MagSafe USB-C chargers? Wow, is this the first time in ever that Apple listens to their consumer base? :tea:

Nope lol. The MagSafe name is rumoured to be revived for Apple's wireless chargers. USB-C will never appear on iPhones. Next step is portless.

XS is nowhere near old lol. I'm still rocking the original SE, which has a 2015 chip.
