Saw a tweet the other day breaking down the pricing that buying one in the UK is around the same price of flying to New York for the weekend staying in an Air BnB and buying one there.

Don't tell NeoGaf, but if you unbox it they'll never know.

Just updated my iPad software to iOS v11. Ten minute viewpoint:

+ I like the new dock
+ The virtual keyboard is cool (drag-down symbols :toot: ...although some symbols have been moved :x )
- Original settings have not all been carried over (I had Bluetooth off but it was turned back on)
- What is up with the screen brightness? It seems to be auto adjusting which I had turned off before... and there now doesn’t seem to be an option to turn if off again?

CONFIRMED: The auto screen brightness is so annoying :x . I can’t see a way of turning it off...

Is it me or do the icons seem bigger? Sharper or something but I can't quite put my finger on it.

Shouldn't that be easier if they are bigger?

Yeah I know what you mean. Noticed it straight away when I updated.

Every major update Apple seems to move something from its logical home to a random location.

The new notifications system is broken. How anyone signed that off I'll never know.

Yeah, I think the same. The icons have changed and it looks a bit stand-out than before.

Is there another way to pull up the dock besides swiping up from the bottom? First app I tried it on was reacting to the motion, and, y'know, that's not what I intended.

Has the App Store become unusable for anyone else? Constantly refreshes whatever section I’m on. :?

Same here, judging by the Apple support forum a lot of people are having the same issue.

I updated my iPhone 7 to ios11 and it's definitely experiencing some stuttering in its transitions between apps etc - i don't remember that ever happening before.

I've only tried it a bit, mind, as I am now using a Galaxy S8 - which i am really impressed with! Last time I had one of these was an S4, i think - Samsung/Android have certainly moved a long way since then!

I called off his players' names as they came marching up the steps behind him....All nice guys. They'll finish last. Nice guys. Finish last.
