Poll: which iPhone XR color did you pick?

Holding an iPhone under water

iDownloadBlog ran a quick non-scientific poll ahead of iPhone XR pre-orders to gauge your interest in the device and get a feel of your purchase intentions before the launch. Apple's been taking pre-orders for these colorful phones since last Friday and, naturally, we're eager to learn which color you have picked, and why. Good thing there's a poll for that!

Poll: Have you downgraded to iOS 11.1.2 yet?

With a powerful tfp0 exploit for iOS 11.0-11.1.2 out in the wild, the future looks somewhat bright for an iOS 11 jailbreak. On the other hand, you don’t have long to get your devices on iOS 11.1.2 before Apple stops signing the supported firmware.

Not only has iOS 11.2 been out for some time, but Apple just released iOS 11.2.1 on Wednesday, which means the signing window could be closer than ever to closing.

Poll: what new Apple devices are you planning on buying?

Apple yesterday unveiled several new gizmos, some of which are priced higher than their predecessors. We're interested to hear your opinion about the latest iPhones, the new Apple Watch Series 3 models and Apple TV 4K. Specifically, what new device(s) are you planning on buying from Apple’s announcements yesterday, and why?

Poll: do you own any HomeKit products?

Do I have any HomeKit accessories in my home? No, not yet, but that's because I currently live in a rented apartment. I'll be getting smart home gadgets when I buy my own house, that's for sure. Until that day arrives, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for prices of HomeKit products to continue dropping.

Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of how HomeKit brings these appliances together in the Home app with support for scenes, Siri voice control, remote management via Apple TV and other perks. I also like it a lot how HomeKit products are required to use hardware encryption for security purposes. It's just that outfitting my home with these smart gadgets would represent too sizable an investment for my budget, that's all.

So, what about you? Do you own any HomeKit-certified accessories? Cast your vote and meet us in comments if you'd like to share your thoughts about the HomeKit platform or any HomeKit devices you already own, or may be planning on buying.
