I’m still a bit wary about installing iOS betas but I couldn’t wait to try 11 on the new iPad. I considered there wasn’t much to lose on a brand new device if things went wrong so I went ahead and did the deed. Right away I can see that instant screenshot markup is gong to be very useful.

This may not look pretty but I could very quickly let my brother know the relative situation of the places we’ll be going to in London later in the year. Not a big deal on desktops maybe but useful and very fast on an iPad.

It’s almost exactly two years since I bought the Apple Watch and I’m still wearing it every day. Same model (black Sports) and same strap. Same battery life. I have no intention of buying a newer version as this does everything I need.

It’s not an essential item and I’m still not convinced it has a future. I don’t know anyone else who has one or who even talks about them. Saying that it has become a part of my daily life and I’ll continue to wear this thing until the battery starts to fail. No sign of that yet.
