in UK 2021 700mHz 5G will be rolled out for use as it has a long range in the country areas and will penetrate buildings, a 5G phone without this frequency could have problems,
as many did when 4G first came out and could not connect. How many being released now have this frequency in readiness?.

I plan to stick with my older smartphones (2 Apple, 2 Huawei). If an iPhone should break down, I may replace the larger with a Pro Max, the smaller maybe with a mini.

Price increase of android phones are because many components are better and more expensive. Not 5G.
S10 5G was already more than $1000.

I think this was very good move from Apple. Those who need charger are still saving money. And those who doesn't need either of them save even more money.
In the end this just makes iPhone look lot cheaper while for example Note 20 ultra now cost $80 more than 12 Pro Max

The status symbol of iPhones is massive however this is what sways more than the phone size itself..
So it's the new iPhone. A very good smartphone for sure with a big launch event and 50% better at everything taglines. It's also insanely expensive and doesn't even sell with a charger FFS. Yep - Apple can kiss my ass on that one. I'm sorry but I don't and won't buy into their green marketing BS. Selling an expensive sub $1k+ phone the price of a TV without a charger is lost on me. It's just rude cost cutting and a fat middle finger in my face. The phone itself.. A glorified XS with a slightly better camera and probably better battery life but no real evolution. I'll happily use one as a company phone if I'm given one and am not asked to pay for it, but my hard earned buck will certainly go elsewhere. I'm mighty impressed by the new Sony Xperia phones and may just hold out for the 1 III or buy into the 1 II

They are not the only supplier of this kind of component.

Will do same things as other ToF.
Any ToF can recognize shape of things at short distances.
Apple has it ther just to earn more point of bokeh by dxomark.
Apple is not going to spend money nor time on AR , they know it is a failure like VR for cellphones.

Only that you pay the same for less of performance, who wouldn't be angry.

Isn't it interesting how only 4,5% of the voters are satisfied with their iPhones as they are and will keep them?
Much respect to Apple for listening to its customers requests.
I used to be a Sony user, I sent countless emails to Sony requesting them to make a small full screen flagship and it was never made.
Apple listened and delivered. All my respect to Apple.
I can't wait for my iPhone 12 mini to arrive

Different Technology. It's not the same.
3D iToF (indirect Time-of-Flight) sensor on the Sony 1II is specialized for camera related functions (photos & videos). While the full-fledged LiDAR on the iPhones/iPads also for multimedia and virtual reality.
Laser-based time-of-flight cameras are part of a broader class of scannerless LIDAR, in which the entire scene is captured with each laser pulse (3D ToF, found in Android devices), as opposed to point-by-point with a laser beam such as in scanning LIDAR systems (the ones on the new iPhones & iPads).
