Apple Apologizes Over Slow iPhone Batteries, Lowers Price. – I’ve noticed a significant reduction in my battery capacity in my iPhone 7S the last couple of months.  I’m torn between upgrading to the iPhone 8 or iPhone X… or simply replacing the battery.  What would you do?

Credit Cards That Got the Axe in 2017. – I hate seeing these cards go because of lost opportunity to earn more miles and points.  Hope that some attractive cards are released in 2018 that will help us get over our mourning.

  1. iPhone 6 owner here. The phone is 3 years old now, but I don’t want to plunk down $1000 for an iPhone X, so I will replace the battery and wait for the next iteration of the iPhone X. I do have a power pack case for now, but the phone is slow and irritates me.
