I got this email through from Apple, like a lot of people encouraging them to try out the beta program. In my experience it’s pretty solid but unless you’re happy with how to downgrade to iOS 14 and not lose any data I’d wait. The latest beta is probably the best one (you’d like toContinue reading “Apple encouraging more users to use the iOS 15 beta”
Going through an old hard drive I was able to find my Home Screen from various old iOS versions. Back in 2010 I was using an iPhone 3GS and always tended to jump on the beta releases. Here’s a few screenshots I found from iOS 4 and the beta back in 2010. Here’s what myContinue reading “Looking back at iOS 4”
These Notes apps let you organise your thoughts and reference materials with more flexibility than the iOS Notes app. Apple Notes got some improvements in iOS 13 but it still has limitations. Third party apps can give you better organisation, formatting and a better interface. The problem is that there are a whole host ofContinue reading “The best note taking apps for iOS”
I’ve written a few things on iOS 15 and this post from MacStories explains the changes better than I can. I agree with most of this post and need to get my teeth into Focus, I’ve not even set it up yet.

These aren’t going to be a revelation if you’re a power user but I want to put some useful articles into the world for people to use.Continue reading “How to quickly add events in Apple Calendar”
It’s that time of year again where I look at the improvements I’d like to see in the next version of iOS. iOS 14 was a really great release and I want Apple to build on its stability with just a few tweaks here and there. HOME SCREENFirst up is the App Library. It’s aContinue reading “iOS 15: what I’d like to see”
I’ve been setting up a new iOS install and I was already thinking about my use of the App Library but then this Tweet got me thinking about it even more. Initially I had one page with my Home Screen and then the App Library but it takes so long to find anything I’m switchingContinue reading “Rethinking the iOS App Library”
iOS 14 widgets have taken off like I wouldn’t have imagined and looking at Twitter and Reddit I’m feeling great about the ways people are being creative with their home screens. Making technology your own via stickers or customisation is very important to me and to be honest a reason I always looked over atContinue reading “Getting lost in widgets”
