Hi, welcome back to DESK.
For Apple nerds like me, this is the time of the year when we begin to talk about the newest iPhones and their newest features. In particular, this year, we have a lot to talk about: for the first time ever Apple presented not one but two different iPhone. So, basically we have 200% more of nerd stuff to talk about! I don't want to go in deep in all the details of the new iPhone 8 and iPhone X (remember, you should read it "10"). The X seems gorgeous and I'm really curious to try it, whenever it will available in Apple Stores. For sure I'm not going to buy it, at least not this year. I'll wait for the next iPhones (maybe the XI?!). The iPhone X seems a good exercise to test the market capability and new technolgies. Let's see the first reviews. Apart from iPhone news, but remaining in the Apple universe, a couple of weeks ago I gave up (the temptation was so high) and ordered a pair of AirPods. It took a while to get them but they're finally here. I was very curious about this product, from the beginning. I read a lot of good reviews and someone even said that AirPods are one of the best Apple products ever. I couldn't resist.
After a week or so with the new AirPods I can say that this product is amazing, not perfect, but definitely one of the most "magical" Apple products. They can be improved, of course: the pairing is not always smooth and switching between devices is not as imediate as you may think. Apart from that they're small, light and perfectly fit my ears. They're the perfect companion to your Apple Watch and Siri is available in two simple tap. The overall quality is very high and tangible, as usual for Apple products. I'm happy with this new toy. Now guess, which will be the suggested gadget of this edition of #DESK? Let's move on and welcome to the most Apple-centric #DESK ever (😄).
iOS 11 is finally available to everyone and I've to admit that it's a pretty big change, especially for iPad. One of my favorite new features is the brand new AppStore: the Today section is amazing. If you haven't done it yet, update update update!
Wireless. Effortless. Magical.
