I had to exchange my first pro, the first handset kept flickering everytime I lowered the brightness, no problem at all with the replacement though.

Like Craig, I was tempted by the mini but after handling both opted for the pro.  Got the blue, but it popped straight into a Spigen ultra hybrid case anyway.

Daughter grabbed my SE2020 before I even took the pro out of the box.

Gone for the Spigen Liquid Air case for mine. I've got a similar case of theirs on my 6 and love it.

I normally end up with four or five cases from different brands, always go back to a Spigen, can't go wrong for the price.

Can’t decide if I want the 12pro or not. My wife got one and it feels significantly bigger/heavier in my hand. The cameras are appealing though.  I like my iPhone X but would need to replace my battery soon if I were to keep it.

Has anybody got a HomePod or the mini? I want one of them but not sure what is the difference besides price point and size?

Had the HomePod and sent it back. Sound wasn’t to my taste. Sonos is much better, in my opinion.

Loving the 12. Size is def taking sometime to get used to over the 6 - it’s 100% not a one handed phone (and I’ve quite big hands).

One thing though - what happened to double tap to zoom? It made browsing RAWK ok on a phone but not it appears to be gone and I’ve got to pinch to zoom which is a fucking pain in the arse.

iPhone randomly asked me to sign into Apple ID last night and since then I'm receiving no notifications from any Apps except phone calls and text messages.

Any ideas? All notification settings are switched on.

Switch it off (properly)

Then trying a restore from the last back up

Have shutdown (hold power and swipe off) a couple of times but no change.

I backup to my PC and the last time was a few months ago. Stupid question, if I restore a backup, will I lose things like the photos I've taken, notes I've made since the last backup?

Nah, you read all sorts about celebs getting their iCloud hacked so don't ha.

Have since seemingly fixed it by individually opening the Apps and 'reestablishing' the notification connection as they're now coming through.

Regarding restores so I know for future reference, would I lose things like photos and notes?

Not if you use iCloud.

Looking to replace my ipod Nano 7th generation, but having looked at the prices on amazon I'm tempted to try somewhere else for a change. What is ebay like for electronic stuff, as there are some pretty resonable prices on there. I've brought the odd CD off there but nothing like this before? Or is there somewhere else people would recommend? Thanks.

Updated to 14.3 and news widget has completely disappeared. Apple used to be good with software updates, but now it’s a roulette wheel of ‘what will break if I update’.

I sold mine a while back as never used it, then recently have been doing quite a lot of photo editing on it and it would have come in handy. So much better than your finger for things like that.

I’ve been using it for photo editing, by editing I mean defacing photos of the missus, printing them out and sticking them in random places around the house.  Lockdown isn’t doing me any good.

The Mac I was using in work was doing my head in on a second-by-second basis.

It was just so stupid, so I'm using Bootcamp on it.


But. I hate being defeated by technology - no matter how unintuitive or stupid it is - so I've actually bought myself a Mac Mini to get my head around it.

I've got laptops of pretty much every flavour; Centos 6, Centos 7, Mint, Ubuntu, WSL 2, Windows 10, Windows 7, Amiga OS 4.1, OS2/Warp, XP, 98 and now adding the new Mini, I can dick about with it in my own time and customise it myself - the work one is pretty locked down.

Awsome start with the Mac Mini

To be fair - they have gone for a normal plug and a HDMI adapter plus some other ports - so already better than a Macbook Pro

The downside? It's stuck - can't detect any bluetooth devices, so having to dig around to try and find wired shit to plug in

Apple. It just works. (TM)

What can't it find?

I've had Mac Mini's for about 10 years now and can't say I've experienced any bluetooth issues.

What can't it find?

I've had Mac Mini's for about 10 years now and can't say I've experienced any bluetooth issues.

On first boot up, it's searching for bluetooth devices (Specifically a mouse and keyboard)

I didn't have them auto searching before I turned it on the first time, so I had to switch it off. But it wouldn't switch off, so I had to hold the power down for 5 seconds to power it down.

I started them both searching (Logitech keyboard and mouse) and it wouldn't detect them. So I tried an older Logitech Keyboard and mouse. No luck.

So I tried a Jelly comb keyboard/mouse - again no luck.

So I had to find a wired mouse and keyboard I'd had lying around and plugged them into USB. That worked.

Once I'd done setup then I could then add my keyboard/mouse through bluetooth, but installing Big Sur update now, so not sure yet if they will be available after a reboot)

Looks like it's stuck on the Big Sur update again, but on the Mac Pro I got around this by rebooting in safe mode and doing an install from there

It's stuck on "About 10 minutes remaining" - so this seems like it's a pretty universal problem with this.

None of this is annoying me particularly now, just accept that it's not perfect and has a few issues - but big difference is that it's not stopping me getting my work done on a minute-by-minute basis. I now have the time and leisure to work out its weirdness. You never know, I might even like it. I'm a big fan of tech, so new stuff is always fun to play with - if it's not affecting your life :)

EDIT: To be fair, although it got stuck for a while, it managed an update.

Yay.

And it did detect the mouse/keyboard on reboot - which was a bit of a worry, some people online seemed to have an issue with that - and that what happens on the MacBook Pro - from Bootcamp, it detects the bluetooth and mouse, but from MacOS - nothing, so I have to logon using the laptop keyboard then it's OK


The Mini seems much better so far than the Pro - better connectivity, better built-in interfaces (Two usb-c/Thunderbolt, two USB 3.0, Ethernet port, audio I/O, HDMI, better plug, better detection (Once installed and running) of devices.

I can take my time and have a play around with it now. What good free shit is available for this (not pirated crap!)

Also.. also.. it's bluetooth is superior to the Macbook Pro. With that, I have a super-dupe K780 keyboard and it refused to identify it properly. When I did the 'test key' (to the right of shift) - it said "You've pressed your Apple keyboard :D )

This one detected it, then gave me the option to set it up as a standard 101 key ANSI keyboard. So I can at last use my Numeric keyboard!!!!!  This was impossible to do on the Macbook Pro - despite trying different stuff for several hours, it just wasn't having it and this did it straight away.


From what I've seen so far, if they'd given me a Mac Mini from the start then I'd have been a lot happier.

Ordered the 2020 iPad Pro 11 inch. Can’t see it getting any cheaper when you compare the price to the air but that’s just a guess. Should be a good upgrade over my 2018 9.7 base iPad and don’t think I would notice the difference between the 2020 pro and the 2021 pro in how I will use it no matter how much faster it is.

Has anyone ordered Airtags ?  Im picking up four on Friday after I actually got my head around how they work.  Obviously they aren't going to stop arseholes stealing your shit, but sound ideal if you've left your keys somewhere.  I'm going to attach them to house/car keys and my backpack I use if I have to work away from home.
