I have been tempted but I don’t think I would notice much (if any) difference if I did, I am extremely happy with my X, if I were to upgrade it would be to the XS Max but I think it may be to big as the size of the X is the perfect size for both browsing and fitting in my pocket, I have the 256gb model so it has plenty of storage, it’s fast, great screen, great camera etc, I will be waiting until 2019 for a new iPhone



Thanks, its worth noting that I currently have a iPhone 6

Have they announced when Amazon UK will start officially selling Apple products like the USA? There’s a few items there (old gen Air) but not a proper shop.

I've not seen a date as of yet, but then again I've not exactly gone looking for one.

Reckon I'll have a quick look for deals on the 128GB iPad as soon as midnight rolls around (imagine most sites will put their deals up then), if there's not anything amazing I may as well just buy it from Apple and then put the voucher towards an iPhone in the near future.

I’m not familiar with the shop, but they’ve got some heavy discounts on Apple products, with an extra 2% off via Quidco. It takes the MacBook Air to under a £1000: https://www.eglobalcentraluk.com/produc ... Book%20Air

I ended up just ordering my iPad (with Apple Pencil) via the Apple store, I will be ordering an iPhone at some point in the near future anyway and the savings I'd have gotten at John Lewis was £40 (£30 off the iPad and £10 off the Apple Pencil when bought with an applicable iPad), which is how much the voucher will save me off my iPhone purchase so it made little difference in the end. Looking forward to having an up to date iPad and I'm keen to try the Apple Pencil out (will have to buy Procreate as I keep reading that its one of the better art apps out there). I have ordered a Logitech Bluetooth keyboard folio case, I spend quite a lot of time typing stuff out on my iPad and this looks to offer decent protection as well, although I ordered this off of Amazon as they were charging £65 rather than £90 off the Apple site.

Bought this the X as it was £400 cheaper on Black Friday. Looking forward to the upgrade

:toot: :toot: :toot:

My new iPads just turned up, unboxed both items to make sure they look fine (which they do) but I'm waiting till my case and screen protector arrive before setting it up, hopefully they won't be much longer.

Re the gift card I now have for the Apple Store, anyone know how to redeem it (I take it its when you're checking out on an order?) and how long does it last for before it expires?

Did your case arrive yet? which colour iPad did you go for? How you finding it?

You just add the gift card on check out or in store at a Apple store, I’m not completely sure but they either never expire or last for two years

Thank for the info re the gift card, looks like I've no immediate rush to buy an XR then (although it is on the cards). I went for the 128GB space grey (as I prefer the black bezels) 2018 iPad, so far so good, already feels immensely quicker than my (now old) iPad 2.

I'm literally just getting around to setting it up now as my case and screen protector have finally arrived and I've finally got a bit of free time (Amazon have been remarkably slow for them, ordered last Friday and turned up yesterday evening, wouldn't have minded if I'd opted for the free P&P but I take it they'll have had a manic weekend).

Very easy tos et up as always though, backing up from an iTunes backup makes it feel like I've never been even switched. Although it looks like it'll take a while to redownload eveything.

Quick edit to say its all set up now and the difference is night and day between this and my old one! Only thing is a few apps I had on there are no longer available or haven’t been updated so I guess I’ll need to try and find replacement apps for those. Luckily nothing too vital though, anyone know a good video download app?

I’m really enjoying my iPad and I am using it far more than I thought I would, at first I thought the screen size may have been to large but it’s perfect, I have been watching now tv and all 4 on it and find it more comfortable than watching it on the tv, I have been playing games on it, I am currently playing sim city and it’s great and I can listen to music or a podcast at the same time, the speakers are really impressive as well, I didn’t think I would use the Apple Pencil at all but I prefer using it as a stylus rather than my finger, overall I would give it 10/10 I am extremely happy with it, I buy a lot of things that I end up not using but everything I buy from Apple I use daily (apart from my iPod touch but that’s understandable)
