The Apple Watch is the only thing keeping me in the Apple ecosystem

I've been watching developments over in Android land with some interest. No, I'm not about to jump ship (again!), abandoning all my Apple gadgets. But I've been watching how Android is quickly shaping up to be an excellent alternative to iOS. So why wouldn't I switch next time I upgrade my mobile phone? My Apple ...

My top posts of 2016

It's been a busy year on the blogging front. I reached by 1,000th post and built a better habit of regular posts. Some of which were surprisingly popular with those of you with enough time on your hands to come visit. I had a quick look at my stats and the following posts are (in ...

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 ...

Apple Watch series 2.0 has arrived!

While I won't be getting my new iPhone 7 Plus for a few days yet (le sigh), my new Apple Watch arrived this morning. What's more, I somehow had the self-control to leave it in its box until I'd finished all my must-dos today. It's gorgeous, but hard to differentiate from the series 1.0 watch ...

An iOS 10 headache

Now, you can tell me I only have myself to blame, but I tried to update my iOS devices as soon as the iOS 10 update became available from Apple yesterday evening. My iPad Pro 9.7" updated smoothly and easily. I haven't gone through all the details, but with a couple of hours' use, I ...

iPhone 7 Plus: ordered.

Now the wait begins. I ordered a couple of phones for @FrankDJS and I as soon as the online Apple Store opened this morning. Sat in bed, refreshing the iPhone app until the store opened, I used an old trick to guarantee we'd get what we want. Last night, I selected each of our chosen phones ...

iPhone 7 – taking the plunge?

I missed yesterday's Apple Event as it was streamed, but followed it via the liveblog from the Verge and sporadic tweets, all the time on a slow-moving train from Nottingham to London. There weren't too may surprises (Mario aside) and the phone and watch announcements were as expected. Yes to new black colours, yes to ...

Here come the shiny new Apple gadgets!

By this time tomorrow, I'll have gorged myself on all the juicy details from Apple's event, pored over the blog posts, zoomed in on all the photos and decided if any of it is of interest to me. I mean, I'll be interested in it all, but I won't be buying it all. My iPhone ...
