When I get that email I don't know but its been a right pain in the arse at work without being able to use my phone. Good news is I have 90% battery when I got home which it usually is more in the 30% range by then..

If that's the same email my dad had to wait on when his iPad got bricked then it takes just over 2 weeks :lol:


In this day and age, taking 2 weeks for a strawberry floating email is nothing short of disgusting. I was told if I hadn't gotten a result today to ring back on Friday. If it's not sorted by the weekend I think I'll take it to CeX along with the Watch and trade in for a Samsung S7. It's basically useless apart from taking calls and responding to texts form the lock screen (Or asking Siri to text for me from the lock screen)

Did you get a time frame of when you'd get an email response? From memory I think my Dad was quoted a week

I don't think they're generated by computer and each one is assessed manually by a person, hence the response times.


Got an email last night asking me to either confirm the recovery process or cancel it (Confirmed obviously) and it then stated instruction will be sent to my current number.

It might work slightly different for you. I think the biggest problem I had was recovering the actual iCloud account. The device recovery was a pain (an update killed it) but the longest waiting for the iCloud account to be reset.


Sorted now, took 4 bloody days to get sorted though and after being told today by Apple Support (LOL) that it might take up to 3 weeks to reset I was all ready to wipe clean and get shut of my iPhone and Watch for a Samsung S7 over the weekend :fp:

My list is gradually getting shorter. Hoping there will be a mad rush near the end.

Can anyone point in the right direction with something.

After an adapter allowing for an iPhone with lightning connector to play audio through to a legacy iPod cable (30 pin I think they were?)

I bought an adaptor for someone that works for changing the iPhone with older iPod cables, and also lets you connect the iPhone up to a laptop to access photos (data). However this doesn't work with Hi-Fi's etc to play audio as it simple comes up with "iPod disconnected" on any audio playback device.

Is there something specific I have to look for? Or does anyone have a similar cable or adaptor they can recommend?

For the record it's a 30 pin cable connected behind a dash, so I can't access any USB etc. It has to be 30pin > lightning

OLED version of the new iPhone sounds like it'll be quite expensive :dread: https://www.forbes.com/sites/gordonkell ... b420e110ba

The iPhone 8 will be Apple’s most expensive iPhone ever and I’m hearing pricing will start from $1,100 to $1,200.

At that price, I'd expect it to be RGB subpixel layout at 2560x1440 but my gut feeling is it'll just be Pentile. :dread:

Also, I thought Samsung only ever sold the previous generation OLED screens to rivals rather than the latest and greatest which makes Pentile even more likely.

I'm happy with my 6S just now. Can't see me upgrading to any of the new ones this year, If I do decide to upgrade it'll most likely be a 7 Plus when they go down in price. Kinda regret not getting a 6S Plus in the first place since it was only £100 dearer.

That iPhone 8 is going to be a ridiculous price over here if last year's Brexit price jumps on the phones and Macs were anything to go by.

Someone at Apple has done a whoopsie. New design all but confirmed from the Homepod firmware and it looks like infrared face unlock might be replacing the function of Touch ID.

I honestly wouldn't want to be walking around with a phone worth £1000, especially with the amount of thefts and snatching taking place at the moment. And then I'd be worried about dropping it...

Looks like AppleTV 4K is imminent though, at long last.

Looking at the current price points the most expensive iPhone is the 256GB 7 Plus at £919 and I'd expect that to be what the 7S Plus will end up being. strawberry float knows what the pricing on the new one will be like. £1119 at the lowest? :dread:

Got myself a 256GB iPad Pro (10.5) on the way.

I've kind of had an off-and-on relationship with iPads in the past, but I've only ever owned 16GB models, so a lot of my reasons for letting them gather dust were due to me getting fed up juggling apps and content.

The high-refresh display is great, too. Had a play with one in Curry's earlier.

Does anyone have an IPhone SE?

My IPhone 6 has seen better days and I need to get a new phone. I only use the IPhone for listening to music, surfing the web and the CarPlay stuff (plus texting of course)

Is it a good phone? Will it be good enough for what I want to use it for?

It's a good iPhone but you'll likely struggle with going from a 6 to the smaller screen.

Apparently it's just an iPhone 6 in the same casing as a 5 and the battery life is meant to be better but yeah like massimo said, going to the 4 inch screen might take some getting used to.

I popped into town and had a look at an SE today, I like it, never been a fan of big phones so it looks perfect for me. Ordered a 128gb Space Grey model and got a new sim only deal in EE, £21 a month with unlimited calls/texts and 20gb data.

When using CarPlay, how much data would the maps use roughly?

Difficult to say, but I really think you'll be okay wth a 20gb allowance. I'm on 12gb monthly and use maps every day.

Doesn't seem like that much so 20GB is plenty http://www.connectedcarlife.com/feature ... e-maps-use

Apple conference tomorrow.

Liking what I'm hearing about the Iphone pro or whatever you wanna call it. Nice to see they going to go with a Quad HD screen and edge to edge display. I have a S8 plus for work and it's hard going back to iPhone screens after using them.

I'm not entirely sure on them removing Touch ID though. I hope the rumours on that aren't true.

Expecting as usual some insane pricing especially as Samsung priced the Note 8 at £850. I'm expecting the higher end iPhone to start at £900 atleast.

From what I've read it's going to be iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and Iphone X (or whatever fancy name they choose). I want the iphone x but it'll be expensive as strawberry float so may get the plus... when I can upgrade that is.
