Me too! I wish there was a way to shut off the Chinese interpreter tack, though.

Mine's working now. They're discussing the new camera right now, it's quite an advancement over the existing camera on the 5S.

Yeah... the livestream was a major catastrophe. They didn't set aside enough bandwidth for their servers.

Curious...
  • Wi-Fi calling is a new feature for making high-quality calls when cell conditions are poor.
Would this be iPhone to iPhone only (like current text over WiFi) or is it WiFi to any phone? Now THAT would be a GREAT feature! At home and at work I have crappy service so phone calls are iffy at best. Also, is this a phone feature or an iOS feature??

The people who buy iPads have never been concerned with buying the cheapest device, no matter the brand. They buy iPads, iPhones, and likely the new Apple Watch because they want the quality associated with the Apple brand and most important, the devices just work. Apple has the highest customer satisfaction rating in the industry.

As my experience from iphone 3Gs - 5, the phone and others feather is perfect. But the most hateful is its battery, during my business work there are many charge 2-3 times per day, if there no business call on my holiday, then also 2 times per day.

I really sad about the battery capacity!
