Poll: Will you buy the upcoming 4-inch iPhone 5se?

IPhone-lineup-2016

With Apple’s much rumored upcoming iPhone 5se on the horizon— an upgraded version of the iPhone 5S that retains the 4-inch display size for diehard fans of the model— we want to find out if you plan on upgrading when the new device launches. That’s the question we ask in today’s poll, in addition to what device you’re upgrading from (or downgrading, depending on how you look at it). 

There are a few things to consider unlike usual Apple and iPhone product launches. It looks like the iPhone 5se, as we previously reported is the current plan for the device’s moniker, will break up Apple’s usual fall release schedule with a mid-year iPhone refresh. It will also be unusual in that Apple is releasing an upgraded model of an already aging iPhone, the iPhone 5S. The thought is that the model will cater specifically to diehard fans of the smaller 4-inch display that was last included in a flagship model with the iPhone 5S. It will also get the usual upgraded internals— new processors, cameras on par with the iPhone 6, NFC, upgraded Bluetooth, Wi-Fi chips, etc— and color options that resemble Apple’s current iPhone 6s lineup. 

But apart from the 4-inch display, will the upgrades that the 5se packs in be enough for you to upgrade from your current 4-inch iPhone, or perhaps even make the switch from a larger iPhone model?

And will it matter that Apple isn’t planning to make the iPhone 5se part of its most advanced, top of the line iPhone lineup— Apple is planning a design that is said to closer resemble the old 5S than the newer, rounder design of the current iPhones apart from cover glass with more modern curved edges. And adding to that, it might not exactly be the most desirable or freshest design for an iPhone around, especially by the time the iPhone 7 inevitably drops sometime later this year in the fall. Also keep in mind, as we noted in our original report, that Apple plans to discontinue the current 5s with the 5se available around the same price points. 

Apple is currently planning on using its March Apple Watch 2 and iPad Air 3 press event to also introduce the new iPhone 5se and likely announce shipping and availability details.

So are you planning on upgrading to the iPhone 5se? And will you be upgrading from the 4-inch iPhone you’re currently using? Switching from a larger iPhone now that Apple has a new 4-inch model? Or holding off to see what iPhone 7 has to offer?

Most US Ports Are Still Woefully Unprepared to Welcome the New Generation of Megaships

Most US Ports Are Still Woefully Unprepared to Welcome the New Generation of Megaships

On the day after Christmas, the largest container ship to call at a US port will stop by the Port of Los Angeles, the largest port in the US. But it’s largely just a PR event: Like many US ports, the Port of LA is not completely ready to welcome this size megaship, which will soon be standard on the high seas.

Apple expands same-day delivery partnership w/ Postmates to New York

Screen Shot 2015-11-17 at 5.42.42 PM
After initially launching same-day delivery in partnership with Postmates earlier this year in San Francisco, Apple today has revealed that the capability is expanding to more locations. Users today have started noticing that same-day delivery from Apple’s online store and Apple Store app is now supported in New York.

First noticed by MacRumors, same-day delivery via courier is now available in most of Manhattan, with it promising 2-hour delivery in 37 of 43 tested ZIP codes. The capability is also available in northern neighborhoods like Inwood and Washington Heights with today’s expansion.

The option for “courier delivery” is available via both Apple’s online store and the Apple Store app. The option costs an additional flat-rate of $19. Apple guarantees that with courier delivery, the item will arrive same-day, within two-hours, as long as the order is placed during normal business hours (by 5PM local time).

Postmates-NYC-Apple-Store

Today’s expansion to New York City seems to imply that Apple’s partnership with Postmates has been going smoothly so far. Apple’s support of Postmates delivery, however, is still extremely limited in comparison with the scope of Postmates’ wide availability with other retailers. Postmates is currently supported in more than 20 states around the U.S., so provided its partnership with Apple continues to run smoothly, there is definitely room for expansion on Apple’s end.

You've probably read about it, even if it didn't really register. Something about a backlog. Something about unions. Imports and exports. Now the dispute that's paralyzing 29 ports on the U.S. West Coast has the potential to affect all of us—and to empty the shelves in countless stores.
