Gotta save some for next year. Like pencil support.
That's the one I kinda wanted. Oh well.

Pencil support is kinda useless if the Pencil is not embedded, and huge as a hot-dog

You guys still don't know that Samsung posses the wacom-SPen non-battery technology.
If some OEM want to make(and they sure do) a Note-like device, they have to pay huge to Samsung(and they sure don't want)

No they don't. Apple already has got a stylus and it's called Apple pencil and it works like a charm on the iPad. BTW Samsung has already started to copy that too. Samsung has been doing s-pen thing for years now but still hasn't got even close to the precision and accuracy of the Apple pencil. All the can do is bend the AMOLED screens in to various degrees and make different looking devices year by year. That's all they know.

No one needs or cares about a non-battery stylus as long as it holds the battery life for a month and works so well, which Apple pencil does so well.

Biggest feature let down were the screen-in-buit finger print scanner and the real contact less wireless charging. I'm pretty sure Apple will integrate those technologies in to their next iPhone once they get mature enough.

This guy is now on high weed right now.
He says that apple pencil works flawlessly than Samsung's S-Pen.
Lol. 4096 pressure sensitivity isn't enough for a pen (period)??

Again he says that :
No one needs or cares about a non-battery stylus as long as it holds the battery life for a month and works so well, which Apple pencil does so well.
Again a LOL. Actually everyone cares about battery life, there is very big difference between a thing working in a similar fashion with battery as that of same thing working with non battery.

I really feel bad about iSheeps which are really too occupied in iWorld.

Bruh the apple pencil has 12 hours of battery life, not months. Also the apple pencil is not more pressure sensitive than the S-pen. The precision of the Pencil has nothing to do with the Pencil but the digitizer in the screen. Where the digitizer is running at 120hz in the iPad, every other device is running at 60 so of course it's gonna be more accurate. The pencil is not better in any way. You seriously have no clue what you're talking about

"No one needs or cares about a non-battery stylus as long as it holds the battery life for a month and works so well, which Apple pencil does so well"

Yes until Apple implements it.
Just like no one cared about Amoled displays Until Now

No one cared about Bezle-less until now
No one cared about specs until now
no one cared about wireless charging until now
No one cared about fast charging until now.
Etc...
Stop the hypocrisy and admit that Apple has now drawn on par with the other OEMs in terms of hard features.
Apple did a good job but you don't need to knock the other oems who have had these things for years.

Tribalism at its best

That's hilarious. Hope he learned a lesson from this; never guarantee s**t... especially with Apple in mind.

He said he was an Apple "Insider" and he talks like he is 300% sure of what he is saying.

Shut up you fool, when did I ever say that the iphone will support the apple pencil, a wrap around screen or long distance wireless charging. The only thing I said was that the IPX will have an underscreen fps when was originally intended to be there. a failed desperate attempt to be funny.

You did say "true wireless charging".

Not mentioned: You also said it would have the highest screen to body ratio of any phone.
