I HAVE UPGRADED MY PHONE
Upgraded to an iPhone 15 Pro (Raw Titanium in colour)
I don’t say this in any kind of showy way but you often ask me for my advice and so wanted to share my personal choice. Here’s the quick logic behind it
- The total life cost of the phone made sense for me, going via EE rather than buying outright or financing another way
- It is tax efficient for me to change my device
- My old phone was over 3 years old
- Storage is the most important decision as it can’t be upgraded later (I went from 64Gb to 128Gb)
- Camera is important to me and the 15 Pro has the best system
- The cost between the 15 & 15 Pro was negligible for the models I was considering
I am super happy with the new phone, although the decision process was bigger than the above. Feel free to schedule in a call and discuss it with me anytime!
Speaking of iPhones, this is one of the features that Apple announced for iOS17 but it is not yet available in the UK. I for one am counting the days – so so useful!
New apps have been released with a “new” tag to the name!
What does it actually mean? In reality so far very little unless you don’t have a Microsoft Business License.
They have added Multi account logins but it is still not the answer for most so carry on using Google Chrome and Profiles 👍🏻

CHEAP MOBILE DATA
Do you need data only for an iPad/Tablet/Mifi/mobile dongle?
These Mobile Data Cards from Three are fabulous value and unlike most Pay As You Go Sims (PAYG), takes 2 years before it expires
IPHONE AS A TILL
Did you know you can use your iPhone as a Till/Card payment terminal – no more pesky 2nd devices we all forget to charge ie iZettle, Square, Shopify et al
On the iPhone XR onwards, with most modern providers ie iZettle & Square, you can simply have someone tap a card on the phone. Game Changer for many!!
