30.5mb page load!
fucking hell apple
I noticed they have a bunch of different fallback classes in their CSS, as I assume they only load that page when it makes sense.
4K video, Live Photo's and still 16gb of memory...
So in about 4minutes of 4k video, you'll run out of space lol
I wonder how much of that is 'free' too. That model's basically for people who just want a £539 pocket-sized Facebook machine though.
Way to judge.
Absolute joke. It's impossible not to see this as simple money grabbing. £500+ for a device with 16GB is just laughable.
"I remember when we only had 2D touch."
Very, very worried about how 3D touch "hides" functionality inside UI elements with no visual cues.
I was really hoping 3D touch would simply give immediate access to long-press gestures. Want to reorganize your icons? Deep press and drag. Want to copy and paste a paragraph? Deep press and drag.
As a side note, I think it has a lot of potential to be the first true click() event for browsers.
Deep press on paragraph makes your keyboard track pad. This is definitely something I look forward to.
Just like other new stuff Apple has introduced before, the community will find the best/better ways to use the new technology. Apple just made this technology possible, but probably hasn't found the best usecases for it. Just compare it to the amout of iOS features that came out of the jailbreak community. Or what happened with the Apple Watch.
I was thinking about the same thing, but long press is usually to activated delete app function, it seems only 3D touch can peek content, but definitely think long press could be a fallback in some of other functions though
Yeah I've been trying to keep an audit for the past few Apple events now and its getting very chaotic: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1lp3gWZ6iO6HTqz2feO0xcKSKE0rB20mfClAtTwWLUDY/edit?usp=sharing
Gestures must be learned (Some brilliant ones almost dont, like punch to zoom) and then they change or arent present on different platforms. It needs unifying.
Is it just me or are these new pages a little disappointing?
Obviously lots of incredible technology and upgrades here, but I just want a smaller phone. The size of the 5/5s is vastly superior to me.
I like the size of my 6+ (I have big hands), but the 5 form factor was just perfect. Like Braun 1960's perfect.
agreed, since moving to the 6 from the 5 I miss the weighting and grip I had with the 5, and I have enormous hands (can easily reach top corner of the 6 with my thumb)
it's frustrating that Apple don't consider trying to retrofit some of the technology that makes the 6s so different
I'm actually the opposite. The bigger the better.
Dang, the subtle metallic shine specular reflection things on the phones in the start of the page sure are nice.
Individual canvas elements. wtf.
The 3D touch is the worst UI decision you can make: only available on two models of Phone. If your wonderful app only shines because those popups you will be screwed.
This would definitley be true for Android devices, but not necessarily for iOS. The adoption rate for upgrading to the latest version of iOS is staggering—meaning that a vast majority of your user base will have access to the latest features of the OS.
The 3d touch is a new hardware feature. Users can't simply update their OS and have access to it.
Ohhh, I didn't realize this at first. Thanks for the clarification!
It will take ages to people to update their phone. Jesus, it's a 600 bucks phone.
The way I see it is how John Gruber sees it:
“3D Touch” is the new “Force Touch” (Craig Federighi slipped at one point, saying “force” before correcting himself.) I’ve seen concerns that this overcomplicates the iPhone’s UI design, but I would argue the opposite. It’s the multi-touch equivalent of keyboard shortcuts on the desktop: shortcuts for tasks that can all be accomplished without it. To use the old parlance, 3D Touch is for power users.
I keep wanting the falling iPhone6S's on this page to hit the virtual, drop shadow-y ground.
So who is upgrading / buying ?
I am. T-mobile Jump on Demand. Later 6+!
Going to retire my iPhone 5 next month I think. It's had a good run.
Planning to retire my 5s . Its still good and I don't think I will miss anything much if I plan to stick to it for longer.
Sticking with 5S for now, refusing to plump up £600+ to get over 16GB.
Im going to wait for the seven. this is the first iphone release where i am still perfectly happy with my 6+. 4K video is exciting, but honestly, its still an iphone with a small sensor and lens, it will still look like an iphone. Ill just wait this one out.
I think Force/3D/whateveritisnow Touch is going to be the biggest deal out of this.
