Argh, it's so tough! I'm probably going to end up getting the Pro because although I probably won't need the low light and the telephoto lens, how inconvenienced will I feel on the occasions I do need it and don't have it...

Yep, this is how I felt.

Although you have to compare the 128GB versions as the Pro doesn't come in 64GB. Once you do that the price difference isn't all that much.

The low light pictures are fucking witchcraft though. I'm really impressed with them.

I went with graphite but I was really tempted by the pacific blue.

I think that's my favourite.

Yeah, I went with the official red silicone one. It’s really nice.

I usually get a third-party toughened case but I don’t leave the house now so :shrug:

I drop my phone at least once a day, sometimes Rowan tries to eat it, and it's regularly given a sticker led makeover by Neve. I'll need to choose a case with that in mind.

If anyone's in the "buy it outright" camp, don't forget/do know that Apple are offering a £120 gift card if you buy direct over Black Friday (27-30th Nov).

What is MagSafe on the iPhone 12 case and should I be making sure I get a case that has this?

It's a wireless charger that uses magnets to hold them in the optimum position.
If you're fine with plugging in, don't worry about it.

Only if you care about getting a MagSafe charger or accessories like the wallet etc.

It still works with Qi charging even if you do get a MagSafe case (I got the official silicone one).

Lady T got one of those 'maus' cases for her 11pro, the wallet attachment with magnets is neat and I think it's cool.

Using FUCKIN' MAGNETS to align things and hold them in place is useful, so I think that having it built into the phone is a good thing.

Jen ordered our new phones and there was a slight breakdown in communication so I've ended up with a pro max. It's hilariously big.

I got screen protectors off amazon and they came with a hard shell guide that places them in exactly the right place on the screen. It was the simplest screen protector application ever. I also couldn't decide on a case and was very nervous I was going to drop this absolute unit of a mobile phone so I ordered a cheap silicone backed one from amazon. It's actually really nice; it fits perfectly, feels nice, has a lip around the edges of the screen and sits proud of the camera lenses.

The camera is fantastic, a significant improvement over the iPhone X.

I've only had it a few days but the old iphone already feels like minituature phone and my work phone which I think is the model before the X is like a credit card in comparison.

I was so tempted by the Pro Max but I couldn’t justify the extra cost in the end. But now I’m well jell

Is it specced differently to the Pro? I assumed it was just ridiculously large.

The good thing is it's prompted me to buy a stand for it so I don't need to hold it if I'm using it during my working day when I'm at my desk.

Better camera is the main thing.

Work got a bunch of Macbook Airs with the new M1 chip earlier this year, so I nabbed the first one to do the initial testing with our in-house applications.

They seem pretty neat, very responsive (although my standard work tasks are not massively processor heavy) and the screen looks really good. Everything is just overall nice and feels pretty good quality.

However the speakers have some 'wide' sound setup which makes it seem like the speakers are off to the sides. It's quite effective but for me it can be a bit distracting as certain notes/ranges sound like they are out far wider than others. It was a little distracting, I found, when I was watching some youtube videos. It's not an obvious setting to disable, but as most of the time I'm using headphones or playing music through a different system it doesn't matter too much.
