Preordered the iPhone X’s Max 256GB to replace my iPhone X 256Gb. I’m on the AT&T Next 12 month upgrade plan. Still had to pay $95 for some reason. Guess it hasn’t been 12 months? Anyways got this one for release date delivery.

Also ordered the Apple Watch Series 4 Black Stainless 44mm to replace my Series 3 42mm mainly because of the screen size upgrade and ECG health upgrades. Even 5 minutes after midnight PST the delivery date was Sept 28 to Oct 2nd for this one. That’s fine. Gonna sell my Series 3 but probably lose a lot of money on it. I really only go for the stainless because of the Sapphire crystal display. On the series 3 I originally got the aluminum and within a week I had a scratch in the face and the aluminum casing and i didn’t remember even hitting it. The stainless Series 0 I still have have an wear from time to time (silver) still has a pristine face. The sapphire really is worth the price jump for me.
Yeah I got the steel series 3 but my case looks rough . The resell value is not that great either .

I ordered a black leather case from NOMAD. I should have it by Monday. SPIGEN also carries cases for the new iPhones but I don't think they ship for another 10 business days.

I pre ordered the iPhone XS max in gold 256 gb gold. I also pre ordered the Apple Watch series 4 in gold 40mm. I ordered both on the 14th at 5 am. I will get the phone on the 21st and the watch won’t be here until the 5th-8th. I have the iPhone X so I probably don’t really need it but I miss the bigger screen I had with the 8+. As far as cases I ordered the tech 21 clear case and a white silicone Apple case which I have used on all of my past phones.

Yeah it sucks that resale is so low when they cost so much. Guess that’s the watch world being as different as it is from the phone world. They’re not going for much more on eBay than the $250 Apple is offering for mine back, especially after eBay and PayPal take their cut. I’m considering just going that route and being done with it easily.

You know I’ve got cases coming. I always get a white silicone iPhone case to start.
So far I have a few colors of the Apple Silicone cases coming. I plan on getting a few matching
44mm Apple Watch bands unless I get the SS Gold Milanese Loop. ‍♀️

Hey, Sharunda! Good to see you. Do you ever get the Apple leather cases? I usually go with the saddle brown. I love how that color looks when it gets a patina. I think the gold is going to look really nice with it (even though we can only see the bottom and camera ring).

I really hate how Apple leaves the bottom totally exposed and their case cost the same or more than better ones.

Hey Europa!! Good to see you too.
I usually only get one  leather case. They always look beautiful but they are slippery. However, the Forrest Green is an interesting leather color choice this time. It looks really good. I am seriously considering that one. The Peony Pink is a happy, cheer me up in the dead of winter, leather color choice. So I have two leather case colors I’m considering.

I know. I know. I’m totally unhinged and haven’t even gotten started yet. LOL .
I’m just super excited to be going back to owning the mega large concussion iPhone! Oh how I miss it sooo! The X was GR8 but I got tired of it’s size within the last few months. I suppose the compact size didn’t wow me anymore. Onward and upward. Go Big or Go Home!

I should have gone with the steel option of the watch. I do want the Milanese Loop too . It takes a while to get it . You set yourself up for a “ What case should I do today?” problem.
Update edit post : BestBuy did not have the steel Milanese loop version yesterday it said coming soon . I just saw it for pre order and of course I did . It’s in progress no shipping date . I was concerned about the color match for watch and phone. YouTube to the rescue .

I got the nomad case for my 7 plus. It is just as nice as the Apple case but the buttons were not aligned correctly .

I would just return it if the buttons are not aligned. I do like that they can send it out right away, not like Spigen where you have to wait 10 business days..

HEY EVERYONE!!! I managed to place my order with AT&T, no issues, to be delivered on Sept 21st. Gold iPhone XS Max 512 GB.
Gold SS  watch ordered from Apple web site to be delivered oct 5-12th unless I can pick it up from a store on launch day after I get my iPhone delivered. If i can’t get it launch day, then maybe the day after. This will be my 1st Apple Watch YAY
Hi Sarunda, I don't think I've ever seen a bigger Apple enthusiast. LOL. When you go in you go in big time. You put me to shame. LOL Nice to see familiar faces around here again. :)

Weight 188 g (6.6 oz)


Xs Max:
H: 157.5 mm (6.20 in)
W: 77.4 mm (3.05 in)
D: 7.7 mm (0.30 in)
Weight: 208 g (7.34 oz)
