I only ever use Safari, it’s my only browser on iPhone, iPad and Mac, only issue I have had was logging into online banking as it didn’t seem to allow you to do it more than once a day but I downloaded the app and it’s a lot quicker, other than that I can’t say I have had any problems

That’s weird. The banks website refused multiple logins within the same day? Sounds more like a bug, what would happen?

What do you find less stable? Does it crash, or do certain websites not load properly?

This! Sometimes website do not load properly or work at all. Every time I switch to Chrome or Firefox it will work fine!

Can’t say it happens that frequently if at all for me. I don’t even have other browsers to use.
Do you have any extensions? Ad blockers, that sort of thing. Could try disabling those when a website doesn’t work.
Or alternatively, try installing some. You’ll be surprised how different the experience is.
I run an ad blocker on my iPhones, iPads and macs. Also run a little pi-hole connected to my router to block all manner of gooseberry fool.

I am not sure perhaps I should do a full reset. One thing that annoyed me with Safari is when Im using airplay to put audio through my HomePod whilst was watching Netflix or Disney Plus on Safari the sound doesn't work well at all with lag, no sound at times etc. I know my wifi isn't good in my room but on Chrome it is much more stable.

You could try deleting cookies and your browser history, but I wouldn’t recommend a full reset or anything.
The HomePod issue I’ve had myself. I have a two in my living room right next to my router, and one in the basement conversion which only just barely gets WiFi. Sometimes I will have sync issues with that one.

Thanks it seems its a wifi issue with my HomePod as I have issues with my laptop and phone too even tho the wifi router is in the room next to me. I have thus ordered a standalone router/modem and will throw out the Plusnet supplied home hub. Hopefully this fixes it.

It looks like it’s a known issue as I googled “NatWest login problems on Safari” and various sites came up including NatWest’s owns website starring there was an issue with it

Most likely a stupid question but can I pay for apple TV with codes for iTunes? I have Apple tv on my Fire TV but don't want to put my card details into apples system so can I buy iTunes credit at a shop where I get a discount and use that?

Thanks in advance :D .

I am not 100% sure but I would assume you can because I know you can pay for Apple Music with gift cards, I have a years free Apple TV so can’t check myself although I pay for Apple Music with PayPal so you could do that and avoid giving your card details

My wife wants to get an iPad, mainly to use for recipes while cooking and shopping online. Would probably get taken out of the house for travelling down the line in a post lockdown world.

We were looking at the 10.2" 2019 model that launched last September, is it going to be worth waiting to see if they launch a new one this year as we're not in a rush?
