Remember when Apple introduced the AA battery charger and nickel-metal hydride rechargeable batteries? The first generation Magic Mouse / Magic Keyboard operated on AA batteries and was released in July 2010 (now discontinued).
We want to use our favorite tools for a long time. I think many people think so. However, when it comes to digital devices, it is often the case that they become obsolete due to technological evolution and are replaced by new ones…and so on. Especially when it comes to be old smart phones, it is a fact that they can no longer adapt to the times, but it is still possible to get by with a digital music player from a long time ago.
少し前にiPad Pro 11インチ (2018) のケースを買い換えました。 Apple Smart Folio BlackからApple Smart Folio Whiteにしました。 色々過酷に使いすぎたのか、表面が剥がれて中の型が見えて来ていたので、さすがにみっともないと言うのと日々使う自分のテンション的にも上がらなかっとので、買い換えました。現在発売されているiPad Pro Smart Folio (第3世代) はカメラ部分のサイズが異なりますが、対象機種です。ただ、レンズの部分の形が合わない事が嫌でした。iPad Air(第5世代) Smart Folioは公式には対象外機種ですが、ネットを見ると使用可能という報告を見かけます。 それを候補に更に見てたら自分が使っているiPad Pro 2018と一緒に発売された初代Smart Folioの新品(これ大事)を発見しそれにしました。
I bought a new case for my iPad Pro 11-inch (2018) a while ago. I went from Smart Folio Black to Smart Folio White. I used it too much and the surface was peeling off and the inside shape was starting to show, so I replaced it with a new one. The Smart Folio for iPad Pro (3rd generation) currently on the market has a different size camera part, but it is the same model. The Smart Folio for iPad Air (5th generation) is officially not a model for the iPad Pro (2018), but I found reports on the Internet that it can be used with the iPad Pro. I looked further in internet shop and found a brand new (this is important) first generation Smart Folio that was released with my iPad Pro 2018 and decided to go for it.
In September Apple event, the iPhone 12 still available in the list, but the iPhone 12 mini is the end. iPhone 13 mini remained, fortunately. The iPhone 12 mini, a mini model that was a bit cheaper due to its smaller size, must have the problem of being priced similarly to the SE. The SE is also better than the 12 mini in terms of performance. I think the fact that there is a new iPhone 14 Plus has also had an impact.
What will happen to the mini model in the future? It is too early to say, but will there be a new mini model in the iPhone next September? What will happen to the mini and Plus models in the future? I took the liberty of making a prediction based on the sales cases up to that point.
I think that there will be no mini model next year. The Plus model has appeared in place of the mini model for the first time since the iPhone 8. I think that there will release Plus model and be no mini model next year either. Along with that, sales of the mini model will end. I believe that the mini size will disappear from the iPhone lineup once and for all.
The last review was until I bought it and a long one, so I’m going to give you a proper review this time. I would like to focus on the feeling of using the iPhone 13 mini, since it is not so much that something has changed significantly. The biggest difference from the iPhone 12 Pro that I already use is above all the size. How will this size fit into my life? That is what I am wondering.
長らく悩んで悩んでいましたが iPhone 13 mini を7月末に迎え入れてました (iPhone 14が目前に迫っているのは知っていてです)。iPhone 12 mini がアナウンスされた時からずっと mini サイズは気になってたのですがどうしても Pro モデルの方に目が行き (カメラ性能的にどうしても…) 、iPhone 12 Pro を選びました。 ただ、やはりiPhone 5 / 5s / SE(初代) のサイズに近い mini モデルはずっと良いなと思って引っ掛かっていました。僕は仕事用とプライベート用で2台持ちなのですが、iPhone 12 Pro と別で iPhone SE (初代) を使っていました。 SEそのものには不満は無かったのですが、使っていたキャリアは、OCN モバイル ONEを使って格安で運用していたのですが、そこに落とし穴がありました。どうも調べてみると「グローバルIPアドレス」を利用した形態となっており、これがバッテリーの消耗を著しく落としていたようです。それに引きずられてどんどん iPhone SEのバッテリー能力も落ち、ちょっと触るとあっという間にバッテリーが減るという問題もあって、まずはキャリア変更を最初に浮かべていました。
I had been thinking long time about how to get the iPhone 13 mini and finally I bout it in the end of July (I know the iPhone 14 is just around the corner.). Since the announcement of the iPhone 12 mini, but my attention was drawn to the Pro model (because of the camera performance…) and I chose the iPhone 12 Pro. ), so I chose the iPhone 12 Pro. However, I still had my eye on the mini model, which is similar to the size of the iPhone 5 / 5s / SE (the first generation), because I always thought it was better. I have two phones, one for work and one for private use, and I was using the iPhone SE (first generation) separately from the iPhone 12 Pro. I had no complaints about the SE itself, but the carrier I was using was OCN Mobile ONE, which is a low-cost carrier, but there was a pitfall there. I found out that it was using a “global IP address” and this was draining the battery significantly. This was dragging down the battery capacity of the iPhone SE, and with the problem of the battery draining quickly after a slight touch, the first thing that came to mind was to change carriers.
It has been difficult to get official information since it was said that Apple Ginza would be relocating, but the 8-chome location has been confirmed, and it looks like the move is finally underway.
Apple Ginza was the first Apple Store outside the U.S. and the first global store. At the time, I wondered why Ginza? But now I think Ginza was the only choice. At the time, I think it was one of the stores that Jobs was particular about. The move was due to the reconstruction of the Saegusa Building, which houses Apple Ginza. I have a lot of memories of this place, so I feel sentimental about it. I can’t tell you how many times I stood in line here all night on the day the iPhone went on sale. How many times have I been helped by the Genius Bar? How many times have I watched sessions at Theater? Thinking back on it makes me want to cry.
