My poor little iPhone 5, getting so old it is constantly trying to refresh, that awful dotted circle of death…..plus, it tells me all the time Unable to Sync, sync to what I don’t know, maybe my iPad, but it happens when I don’t have my iPad on.
I often get a red exclamation point on the Message icon first thing when I turn the phone on.
The phone is slow as molasses….all signs pointing to it trying to tell me something, like GO BUY A NEW PHONE!
Alas, I’m not going to buy a 7 when the 8 is on its way. The WSJ estimates one model of the new 10th anniversary iPhone will cost $1400. I balk at the 7 costing $700!
C|NET wrote a piece on the preview of the phone and what it might have on it.
Meanwhile, back at the old folks home, my 5 is failing me. Yes, I update the iOS, I think I’m at the 10.3.3 version now, I’ve dumped most of my photos up into the Cloud, but it’s like Dawg, slow to wake up, not as anxious to go for walks, sleeps a lot and is ready to have Hillary or Debbie Wasserman Schultz smash the hard drive.
So I wait for the Apple release announcement, thinking all the time – it’s like ANY new generation of something – phone or car – maybe I should wait ’til iteration two, because you KNOW with the iPhone there’ll be an 8a or 8.2 phone three months after the 8 comes out, rendering the 8 no longer the cool phone on the block. I want to be cool, albeit for the first time ever!
Anyone else waiting and waiting? Question: do I have to put myself in queue now to pre-order?
