    This is one of the reasons that I stay one model behind on electronics equipment. Manufacturing is never perfect, the first six months is usually when problems are revealed, so I'll wait to get this year's phone until next year's model is released.

    Not sure about that @ardchoille. The next iPhone could be a doozy. You might end up getting that one instead of last year's 7.

    Potentially: No physical buttons, full coverage OLED screen, 4K(?), ½Tb storage, wireless charging, next gen Airpods...

    I'm not really interested in the newest and fanciest features, I just need it to work for my needs.. and my iPhone 5 still meets that requirement. Sadly, it was stolen :(

    That sucks. I assume it was locked.

    Oh yes, all of my devices are always locked and I have two-factor auth enabled. I hope the thief enjoyed his paperweight :)
