The iPhone XS Max: some first impressions

I've had my new iPhone XS Max (stupid name) less than a week, but I'm loving it. Definitely the best phone I've ever had.

Done and done. New iPhone ordered.

Despite my worries, this morning's launch of the new iPhones wasn't too much of a stressful experience. Not what I was saying to myself at 0759 this morning, though... I'd already made up my mind on the model, colour and capacity of the phone I was after, (iPhone XS Max, 256GB, Space Grey), so my ...

I'm all in on Apple's new big-screen iPhone Xs Max. Despite the terrible, terrible name...

Today’s Apple Event: who am I kidding?

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past month, you'll know that Apple are going to announce their latest phones today. I'll save us all a lot of time and energy by confirming I'll be buying one of them. In previous years, I've wasted time protesting that I don't need an upgrade and ...

One week in with the iPhone X

Testing the iPhone 7 Plus camera

I've had the new iPhone 7 Plus for a little over a week, but I've still managed to put it through its paces, indoors and out, and I thought I'd share a few of those photos here. Overall, I'm really impressed with the quality of pics. The camera app seems faster and more responsive than in ...

Unboxing the iPhone 7 Plus

Excitement levels to the max! I actually got my iPhone 7 Plus yesterday, but it was delivered while I was working up in Birmingham and I was just too exhausted to even look at it when I got in. Ten hours of sleep later, I backed up my iPhone 6s Plus to my iMac, then ...
