Why you shouldn’t buy an iPhone 7 in 2022

I’ve been on the iPhone 7 for a week or so but I had to switch back to my iPhone 11 yesterday. This was for one reason – battery life. You’ll see from my image above that I went into low power mode after two hours of using it. I went for an 80 minuteContinue reading “Why you shouldn’t buy an iPhone 7 in 2022”

Apple to offer parts and repair guides to fix your own stuff (no, this is not a joke!)

In a move I think that surprised us all Apple has announced a self service portal that will be coming soon to the US first then rolling out wider to other countries at a later date. This is a big win for right to repair and I hope it also encourages Apple to design forContinue reading “Apple to offer parts and repair guides to fix your own stuff (no, this is not a joke!)”

Apple backs down on anti repair stance

This is a great victory for right to repair days after iFixit reported the issues with not being able to change a screen on an iPhone 13 without disabling FaceID.

I know myself well enough that I’ll break at least one iPhone within a year, I don’t want to think back toContinue reading “Should you buy Apple Care + for an older model iPhone?”

Some thoughts on the Apple “unleashed” event

Apple yesterday had their “unleashed” event which turned out to be focussed on Music and MacBook Pro. A Siri only subscription? This has me scratching my head a bit. I can see that a cheaper £4.99 subscription is a good thing but to only be able to access it via Siri is a miss inContinue reading “Some thoughts on the Apple “unleashed” event”

An expensive cleaning cloth, well that’s modern Apple for you

This is one of the many little reasons Apple have got as much money as they do, just like this one too. It’s easy to joke about it but the sad thing is that there will be people that will order it. Losing focus on the fun and creativity of it’s products and moving towardsContinue reading “An expensive cleaning cloth, well that’s modern Apple for you”
