Re: The | Apple Inc.  | Thread - iPhone 12 launch

It makes sense to wait till the taxes shift.
I still have a 6 Plus and I want to upgrade to the 12.
Definitely time to upgrade.

Re: The Official Skybox Thread: Take 2

So how simple is it to query customs duties? I bought two air pods separately, and one came through with no duties, while I was charged for the second one.
Same Tropical Shipping. Anyone here queried and for through could chime in please.

Definitely.
Similar priced items locally was aroung $10k.
Depending on where you go, you may not get the 2020 new model as well.
