What I’m Most Excited for in iOS 14

In case you missed it, Apple’s WWDC Keynote came out on Monday and they announced a lot of great new features in the upcoming iOS 14, iPadOS 14, watchOS 7 and macOS Big Sur. Of course they announced a bunch of cool stuff on top of this and it goes without saying I’m looking forward to it all but today I want to specifically cover the features I’m most excited for in iOS 14. Home Screen Widgets Sure widgets already exist within iOS but not like this. With iOS 14 you’ll be able to...

3 of My Most Used Shortcuts

If you don’t know what that Shortcuts app on your iPhone or iPad is then boy have you been missing out. Shortcuts (previously Workflow) is basically an app full of, you guessed it, shortcuts to functions your iPhone/iPad can complete. There is a gallery full of pre-made shortcuts to choose from, simply have a scroll through and add one that sounds useful to you. For example there are shortcuts such as Reading Mode which when used will turn on Do Not Disturb, enable Dark Mode, open your...

Is The Apple Pencil Worth It?

This is one of those questions that a lot of people ask and like with most purchases the answer I think, is pretty simple; yes if you have a use case for it.

Maybe you don’t currently know how you would use an Apple Pencil but really want one anyway and have stumbled upon this post to give you some ideas as to how you could use it in your everyday life, for example. Not everyone see’s...

Sony WH-1000XM3 Wireless Headphones | A Concise Review

Sometimes reviews can be too long and when you’re looking to buy a new product what you’re really after is finding out the main features and the pros and cons of the product. That’s what I’m hoping to give you today. I purchased the Sony WH-1000XM3 Noise Cancelling Wireless Over Ear Headphones last weekend after eyeing them up for a good few months. I love my AirPods Pro’s but I was in the market for some good over ears for home use. I got them on Amazon and they arrived Monday...

Why I Won’t Be Getting the Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro

I’m a big fan of Apple products, which is definitely something you will be aware of if you follow my blog. However, there is one product that I have zero interest in purchasing— the Magic Keyboard for iPad Pro. Now pretty much every tech blogger has this keyboard for their iPad Pro and for the most part raves about it but it’s just not something I’m interested in. I love my Smart Keyboard Folio, I love the keys. (I’ve said before that I’m a big fan of low profile keyboards, where...

Digital Journaling with Day One

I’m a big fan of journaling and have previously used my bullet journal to journal in. I think journaling is good for your mental health and helps you start or end your day with a clear head. In fact it’s even nice sometimes to just journal off the cuff and I love that I can use my phone as well as my iPad to do that, now that I’ve switched to digital journaling. I switched to Day One around a month ago and whilst I was apprehensive at first, I’m a huge fan of digital journaling now. I...

iA Writer vs Ulysses | Which Do I Prefer?

Writing in Markdown is something that is very popular for writers. It’s distraction-free writing at it’s best and that is something that appeals to a lot of people. There are a fair few markdown text editors out there, two of the most popular being Ulysses and iA Writer and having now tried both I wanted to share my thoughts. iA Writer has been my text editor of choice for good while now. I love how I can just open up the app on my iPad or Mac and get into writing a blog post straight...

My Working From Home Setup

If you follow me on Twitter/Instagram then you’ll know that I recently upgraded my working from home setup. Mostly due to the current worldwide situation, I’m working from home full time now, but also because I do regularly work from home anyway and it’s something I’ve felt would be beneficial for a while now. Working from a small 13-inch laptop screen is fine for occasional use but for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, bigger is better. For this reason I opted for a 27 inch HD monitor and...

3 Apps I Use Everyday

There are some apps that you use everyday without fail. Whether it’s the standard set of apps that came with your phone or a bunch of apps you downloaded that you rely on each day, we’re all on our phones a lot and we’re not just starting at our home screens. At least not all of the time. These are the five apps I use everyday (or thereabouts, I’m only human after all). Things 3 Things 3 is my task manager of choice and I check it every single morning and it’s usually the first thing...

iPad Pro 2020 | I Got an Upgrade! | iPad Pro 10.5 to iPad Pro 2020 12.9

I’m typing this post out on the new Smart Keyboard Folio which is attached to my brand new 12.9 inch 2020 iPad Pro! I absolutely loved my 10.5 iPad Pro but it was the 2017 model and when the new iPads came out the other week I knew it wouldn’t be long before I caved and got one. I love having the bigger size iPad, it’s still super portable but you have so much more screen real estate. Not to mention extra space for apps in your dock, something I’m a big fan of. Although I still don’t...
