    What's giving those notifications, is that from the OS?

    Yep. Part of iOS 13 is clamping down on apps requesting your location.

    Agreed, it’s always worth going through settings to make sure apps are not calling your location constantly.

    Just installed IOS13, not sure it's a 'massive overhaul' :D

    There's several features I really like though,

    Finally being able to choose which Wifi/Bluetooth connection you want from the control menu
    The new Volume slider on side of the screen rather than in the middle
    CarPlay has been completely revamped for the better
    Swipe Keyboard Works well
    FaceID noticeably quicker
    a few other UI changes

    Not a massive overhaul but a good step in right direction

    Agreed the wifi/bluetooth thing was something I really missed from my android device.

    I also like the addition of karaoke style lyrics in the music app lol. Dark mode is also how I've had it since running the beta.

    It's weird, I have the X and skipped the XS. Thought I'd be ready for an upgrade by now, but I can't think of anything they could do that would want me to make the jump in September.

    I'd consider switching to the XR for the bigger screen (the max is too big for my hands), but I'm not wiling to give up force touch for cursor movement and text selection.

    @UberTiger I’d try an XR out in a shop as I don’t think there is any loss whatsoever with the force touch being gone.

    For example, just copied and pasted this on my XR instantly with no problems whatsoever:

    “I'd consider switching to the XR for the bigger screen (the max is too big for my hands), but I'm not wiling to give up force touch for cursor movement and text selection.”

    I didn't immediately upgrade from my 8+ but eventually got to an XS Max. Since then I've also upgraded to an iPad Pro, and the USB C port for me is an absolute essential for the next iPhone. There are so many more possibilities from it.

    Screen may be physically larger but the resolution is not as high, so you’re not really benefiting from the extra size. Personally I found the XR too large compared to my 6S.

    Amazon have the XS for £779 which is quite tempting, I know new models are out in September but I wouldn’t want to part with £999 :)

    It's a no from me. I like my electronics in black.

    Ever since the 3G I've always had the black version of iPhones and with the 7 I went for the matte finish over the gloss one

    Rainforest got me to finally upgrade, going from a 128gb 6S to the 128gb XR. Better camera, battery, processor, screen (as in, bigger) etc etc. Roll on tomorrow :)

    Hardly anyone on these forums actually uses the shop by longer, so probably haven’t got a clue what they sell. Rainforest is safer!
