I haven't heard anything regarding it but if I had to guess, Apple is either going to not do it over there or they're looking for a partner. Apple had a hard time even landing Goldman due to the way they wanted the card to work.

 

Apple is also facing an anti-trust suit in Europe over Apple Pay, why I do not know, so that could be another reason.

I thought Barclays was their partner in the UK and probably you are right unfortunately :chick3:

The Apple-brand credit card did/does use Barclays but for their own system they went with Goldman Sachs because I believe nobody wanted to join in on the terms Apple wanted. They didn't see a profit model in it. Hopefully it comes your way soon!

The rumored redesign or the iMacs with newer internals?

I'm excited for that as well. Looks like iPads and Macs with mini-LED could be out as early as this year but will most likely be early next year.

Purple iPhone 11 is super cute. Is it worth upgrading from XR?

Both tbh. Ours is broken so any one will do :celestial5:

 

I'd rather get the new Apple chip one though

It's only 1 year newer, so I wouldn't recommend it. At least not until the iPhone 12 series comes out and the 11 line gets a price cut. Maybe the lower end 12s will also come in purple.

I've heard that the redesign will come with Apple Silicon but the Intel refresh is expected to arrive a lot sooner. Possibly even this month

I'm sure there will be a lot of differences. Apple knows that they're not going to sell premium iPhones if they don't have enough differences from the lower models. Unless that is their new plan, offer a line of iPhones that are essentially the same aside from the # of camera lenses :rip: 

 

I do wonder why the batteries got smaller though. I know the 5G modem is going to take up more space. It could be a compromise until mini-LED is ready, which is thinner than OLED. I also wonder why reverse-wireless charging hasn't been mentioned. The iPhone 11 series apparently has the tech built in, it's just not enabled in software. It was one of the hot rumors and anticipated features for the iPhone 11 but I haven't heard anything about it since last year. A FAD
