My iPhone 6

So I have my shiny new iphone 6 so what do I think so far?


I quite like having a larger screen and it is very clear compared to my iphone 4.
It is quite light.
I like the touch id finger print unlock a lot.
Some of the apps had become a little slow on my iPhone 4 so I am loving the speed that the iPhone 6 bring to those apps.
I had some Bluetooth kit that wouldn’t talk to my iPhone 4 so now that is all working nicely.
It still fits in my jeans pocket (I was worried it might be too big)

The sleep/wake button has moved from the top to the side. Not sure why but I now inadvetently hit the volume controls which are oposite when I go to put my phone in sleep mode.
I have small hands and find that when holding the phone in one hand I struggle to reach the top of the screen so it is not comfortable to use one handed.
The price. Well Apple stuff is always expensive but this at £700 ish seems like a lot of money for a phone.

The set up was incredibly simple. I had ordered a Nano SIM from GiffGaff in advance so that was ready and waiting so I went online and activated the new SIM and requested a transfer from my old SMI to the new Nano one. It said it might take a while but in reality it was only about 5 minutes before my iPhone 6 was picking up the GiffGaff network. I backed up my iPhone 4 to the iCloud and then simply used that when setting up my new iPhone 6. It all worked brilliantly and I have all my call and SMS history as well as music, setting and apps etc. Brilliant! It did take quite a while to complete the restore but I can live with that.

In summary I am pleased with my new toy.

Weekly Witterings #9

1. Half term in Cambridge this week so no Guides.

2. Slightly addicted to these biscuits from M&S.


3. I went into Cambridge today, it has been a while. Parking is now £4.50 for up to two hours on a Saturday. I mainly went to have a nose at the iPhone 6 in the Apple Store.

4. Is it just me that find Apple Stores odd, messy and confusing? As a geek I should love the place but the way you have to find someone to serve you rather than just going to a counter just doesn’t work for me. So I had a play and then ordered one online from PC World using their click and collect. Roll on Monday when I get it!

5. I am up to 60 lengths of the pool now. 90 is. Mile so 2/3 rd of the way there now.
