Some of you may know that I haven’t had a phone since the end of August and I have been recording a video diary about this ORDEAL which I will be sharing on the day of the iPhone launch, subscribe to my channel and catch it when it’s released!



  1. Its not really a gamechanger though is it? There’s no really exciting leap forward with this one. Maybe Apple are running out of ideas?

    1. I think Apple plump for the simplicity when it comes to their phones, and you are right there is nothing gamechanging but after trying to use an android phone I find the iPhone nicer to use 🙂

  2. I think Apple are falling behind their rivals, after previously setting the pace. They’ve done nothing exciting or really innovative with the iPhone for about 3 years now. This was a bit of a damp squib.
