At long last, it is time to upgrade my iPhone. I’ve been using an iPhone Xs Max since it was released in 2018. It still works well as a phone and as a camera, but the battery life after 4 years sucks.
I’ve been waiting for the new Apple announcement to see just how many of those iPhone rumors were true. I plan on getting an iPhone 14 Pro Max in the Deep Purple color.
Part of the fun with a new phone is getting some new accessories.
Since I use my iPhone for photography, first I’ll get a few new items from the Moment shop.
- I have several of their lenses, but they require using the Moment phone case.
- They’ve got a cool new clear filter that snaps on the phone case to protect the camera lenses, even with a Moment lens mount.
- Eventually, I’ll get the Smallrig phone cage, but for now I’ll use my universal phone mount. This mount is part of the All-in-one video kit I purchased for my birthday.
- I will also get a Zagg screen protector – they may be a little more expensive, but they are worth the cost. I still have my original uncracked screen on my iPhone Xs Max, after 4 years.
That will get me started for now.
Because we’re at an RV park for a while, I’ll have Apple send it directly to me or pick it up at the Verizon store. Not sure which option yet, but the orders start at 7 a.m. on Friday.
