Got my iPhone storage space almost full, many pics I can't be arsed to go through at the moment.

What's the best option for free cloud storing, making them accessible on the go but not taking up space on the phone?

Many options try Google Photos iirc free 15gb:

If you're open to secondhand have you checked AVForums? I've bought a few phones from there over the years.

Cheers, had a look but a lot seem to be asking almost retail.

Not sure if it’s worth spending a couple of hundred on second hand which might last a year or two or just get the iPhone se if I know it will be good for a fair bit longer.

Unsure if anyone's got this it's an app called Rave.

It allows you to as a group text or chat by voice while enjoying videos from YouTube, Netflix, Vimeo, Reddit, Google Drive etc etc

Watch with your friends or join random public groups.

Basically WhatsApp group meets Netflix.

I think the concept is sick during lockdown

Is it worth getting the 11 pro or wait for 12? Got an iphone 8 plus but want to update.

I’m in the same boat rick. Think it’s best to hold off as the 11 will drop in price when the 12 comes out.

I read that this is expected in Sept so not too long to wait now.

looks like phased launch of the iPhone 12 (late sept-oct for 3x different sizes). should be their first 5G though

just got an iPhone 11 through work and missing the iPhone X OLED screen… am in the same boat as you rick and matt; got a personal phone 8+ that would like to upgrade to either an 11 pro (with OLED screen) or a 12. either way I'll be waiting

Is the screen different on xr, Xs and 11 compared to x Swede? I have an XR ( I think!!! ) through work which I never ever use but the screen isn’t as good ?

I’ve had an 11 since December and the screen has scratched so bad. Just from general usage. Never been one for case or protector but I’m surprised how bad this screen is compared to my old X.

Had the same problem with an old 8 of mine burny… was weird. Run a screen protector now. just make sure you pick one up with black edges - looks way less naff/obvious when it’s on
