I’m playing with these apps but for now I wanted to share summaries of key apps, here’s Notes.
It’s that time of year when a lot of us early adopters take the plunge and throw the first beta of iOS 15 onto our main phone and then (mostly) instantly regret it. It’s great to be able to test it out but it comes with a lot of downsides. The performance of your deviceContinue reading “Installing iOS 15”
I’ve begun to use the Apple apps on iOS again in the lead up to WWDC and thought I’d do a series of posts on hints and tips. 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.

Since cutting back I’ve moved my iPhone package from a £25 a month unlimited data plan to a £9 one. As part of this I also needed to check my device details to make sure that my device isn’t using mobile when it shouldn’t. I noticed that on a few day trips out my dataContinue reading “How to save mobile data on your iPhone”
I’ve been switching between iOS 13 and iOS 14 almost weekly whilst testing and one thing that’s struck me is I don’t want to organise my apps anymore. Since discovering the App Library in iOS 14 I can’t be bothered to do anything about my iOS 13 setup. I think if you’re on iOS 13Continue reading “Stop organising your iOS 13 apps”
It’s that time of year when those early adopters amongst us trash our data and devices with beta software for a few months. Every year I tell myself I’m not doing it and always end up enrolling in the developer program again. I’m preparing for this year I’ve gone all in and installed iOS, iPadOSContinue reading “Getting your devices ready for WWDC”
