I think the bezels on the iPads are big enough to fit the Face ID tech in without needing a notch. Wouldn't be surprised to see it added into them this year and maybe the MacBooks too.

Has anyone moved from Android to IOS for the X? It's new phone time and I'm considering going back to Apple but I'm wondering if it's really worth spending so much money and relearning another operating system when the difference between X and S9 are so minimal.

I went for it and got a iPhone X, I found the box from my first ever iPhone (3G 16GB White) and I still have the receipt it was 10 years ago so fitting that I got the X (10) this year

I wear them to the gym and they are fine not the treadmill or when I'm lying down on a bench.

The only time they fell out was when I had my coat on, zipped right up the collar of my coat would hit them out of my ear.


I finally went for it and purchased a pair of AirPods and wow! I love them! like you said they also fit my ear perfectly and stay in really well, I didn’t realise how much hassle the wires really were until now, it’s also really nice to hold my iPhone while listening to music without it being restricted because I have wires attached to it that run underneath my jacket, I couldn’t be happier with them, I also find the instant linking when you open the case magic

Glad to hear that you got them and enjoying the new experience :)
Yes its so neat that opening the case triggers the power levels on your phone and also how it automatically connects to the last device they were connected to. I also like how music will pause when you take even one pod out and resume when you put it back on. Or sometimes I just use one EarPod like when at work but it will still blast stereo sound through just the one.
Answering phone calls is also great and people can hear my voice really clearly on the other side. They charge really quickly too!
I bought a silicone case for mine off amazon which protects the case from getting damaged or falling out your pocket easily.

I tried using them for a call today and I was amazed with how well they worked, my parents are away on holiday so I called them on their mobile and they said it was like I was in the same room it was that clear (they are in their 70’s so hearing on the phone can sometimes be a problem)

I changed the double tap commands today for one to stop the track and the other one to skip, I didn’t think you could change what they do so it was a nice surprise

I might get one if those cases, at the moment I use a small cloth bag so it doesn’t get scratched,
