Bigger iPhones Again? That’s It?

I dunno. This Apple store on Flatbush didn't seem very crowded at lunchtime today.

I was on a plane yesterday, so I need some confirmation from the hive mind. Apple introduced a bunch of new iPhones on Wednesday, right? And their only new feature is that they’re slightly larger than the old phones—but still smaller and far more expensive than every Android phone made in the past half decade. Right?

There seemed to be a bit of other trivia about screen tech, facial recognition, and home buttons, but no one really cared. Basically, the phones were a few millimeters larger, and that was pretty much it. Am I missing anything?


We recently wrapped up the crowdfunding campaign for our ambitious Mother Jones Corruption Project, and it was a smashing success. About 10,364 readers pitched in with donations averaging $45, and together they contributed about $467,374 toward our $500,000 goal.

That's amazing. We still have donations from letters we sent in the mail coming back to us, so we're on pace to hit—if not exceed—that goal. Thank you so much. We'll keep you posted here as the project ramps up, and you can join the hundreds of readers who have alerted us to corruption to dig into.
