Re: New iPhones and Apple Watches, oh my!

Its certainly exciting, although I've never done it at launch. Going from an X to an 11, I hardly think you will notice. I think the iphone can easily go for 3+ years now and not feel very...

Re: Should I keep trying to get my sister to become a US citizen?

Re: To become a US citizen or not?
