Not posted an iPad Home Screen in a while so thought I would update you all on what my iPadOS 14 Home Screen looks like.
Few of my current key apps
- Standard Apple Calendar, been my go to now for a little while. I like the widget on iOS and to be honest I don’t really launch the app that much
- Todoist, been using this for a month or so now and it’s been a solid To Do app for me. I like the widget and the app is a very clean experience
- Reeder 4, for my RSS feeds
- Amazon Music, can’t beat 99p for 4 months and it’s been great. Even quicker than Apple Music at downloading music too, can see me sticking even outside of the offer window
- WordPress for my writing, like this very post
Everything else gets used now and then but these are the key apps I use my iPad for.
Here’s the comparison against my current iPhone 11 Pro, that reduction looks pretty great to me.
I’ve had my other delivery of a screen protector for the iPhone 12 Mini so hoping I can share a bit more info for those looking to order one this Friday.
I always prefer a review that catalogues someone’s use of a device in real world situations. It’s what I try to do here and Daniel Bader writing at iMore has done an excellent job writing up his experience of using one.
It’s definitely got me thinking more about losing that telephoto lens if I move from my 11 Pro to a 12 Mini, I take kids and pets photos all of the time.
We only 9 days away from the launch of the Xbox Series X but the initial stock appears to be already allocated.
If you’re still looking at trying to order one then I’ve found the best way is to keep an eye on this link.
It’s nice to see SONY have done something a bit different with the PS5 controller, not going to be a system seller but cool nonetheless. For me personally I turn off any controller feedback to save battery and also be less distracting. I’m not sure what it is but I just find feedback on the controller to be annoying – just me?

This post highlights some of the confusion that I’m feeling about the next generation of consoles. I was already set (and had preordered) the PS5 but have since cancelled in light of my work situation but regardless I’m struggling to understand what will work and what won’t.
My current PS4 Pro will play one of my most anticipated games in Spider-man Miles Morales but the upgrade path to what will work on PS5 if purchased on PS4 is mind boggling. I’ve worked in IT for over 20 years and can’t get my head around it all!
I am now looking at the XBOX Series X for my next generation choice (given game passed choice of games and saving I can make) and I still can’t completely figure out if the Halo series will play on the Series X if I got one.
Anyone else holding off to see how it pans out?
Apple haven’t yet released their leather cases but the team at Mujjo have recently released their lineup covering all of the new iPhone 12 models.
I’m particularly fond of the blue version.
It’s hard without the actual phone but I’m doing my best to share my thoughts on the size of the iPhone 12 Mini compared to other models.
Looks like the camera cut out is the same but as you can see it’s a bit narrower but a nice bit shorter than the 11 Pro.
(Please help me fund one to review)
I wasn’t expecting them to be this close in size. On the left we have an iPhone 12 Mini case and on the right the original iPhone SE.
Observations on the iPhone 12 Mini
- Typing is going to be cramped if you’re used to the iPhone X series size
- For me I still can’t reach all of the corners
- It’ll fit in your pocket amazingly
- This could be the phone to get!
I’m still very interested in this one if I can fund a review unit.
