• How I setup my iPhone’s Action Button

    The Action But­ton on the iPhone 15 Pro is a small fea­ture I eager­ly antic­i­pat­ed. Apple offers nine options from which I specif­i­cal­ly want­ed to access both the silent mode and the cam­era. I also want­ed the actions to acti­vate right away upon press­ing the Action but­ton, with­out need­ing to select any­thing from the on-screen menu after the but­ton… Read more

  • From iPhone 7 to iPhone 15 Pro

    I can’t con­tain my excite­ment as I write this blog post! After sev­en years of loy­al ser­vice, my trusty iPhone 7 is final­ly got a well-deserved retire­ment. And in its place? The shiny, brand-new iPhone 15 Pro! 📱✨ I was in Kyoto when Apple start­ed tak­ing orders for New Zealand. Since I was a few time­zones behind in Kyoto, I was… Read more

  • iPhone 14 Pro

    I ordered a new iPhone! 14 Pro it is, to replace the orig­i­nal iPhone SE that I bought in April 2016. Lov­ing the Dynam­ic Island. It is excit­ing because I am fru­gal with gad­gets (and every­thing gen­er­al­ly!) and I buy iPhones only a few times in a decade. So this is a big moment in the house. Like any phone Apple made, I would say… Read more

But that Kin­dle was lost even before it reached me along with my friend’s lost checked-in bag­gage. Over the years I have… Read more

  • Waiting for the next iPhone

    I’m excit­ed about the upcom­ing iPhone. That’s because I am going to buy it.  It’s been six years since I looked for­ward this much for an iPhone. Luck­i­ly, I did­n’t have to buy a phone all these years. I bought my first iPhone in the Octo­ber of 2010. Say­ing I was excit­ed to lay my hands on it is need­less. It’s… Read more
