There was quite a bit of controversy about the fact there was no headphone socket on the new iphone I think. Many saw it as just another way for Apple to get you to buy more of their stuff. Im not a huge fan of all things wireless and blue tooth. Great while they work but PIA when the dont plus My headphones cost three quid of ebay and work great.

Albert likes his because it connects wirelessly to his computer , diary , photos etc are automatically sync ..ed

Most of the things that he uses on his computer are automatically sync.. with his phone

He likes the 6+ cos text is bigger and easier to read

And he uses it as his kindle

I think he buys I cloud storage , 79 p a month

And he buys the same for me, I’m not sure I use it though

Me I don’t even have a phone

Well I do an I phone I charge it and put in a sim when we go on holiday for emergency

I really should have been born to royalty , I never carry money, or bank cards or phones

So he had better not die before me

Friends here with an iPhone and two iPads just had their G-Mail account compromised and have now lost all mail.
Apparently an odd e-mail came in with all the others last Sunday and each day something terrible happed ended in the loss of all mail. Sadly all old mail from their now deceased daughter.
Initially just slowed down everything. Then the loss of all new mail to eventually all mail and unable to use either iPad.

They did call an expert who has apparently got everything up and working again and suggested an e-mail from a 'M R Obudo' (or similar) was the cause as he had great difficulty in removing it.
I asked my friend if they have any Anti-Virus protection? To which she replied "Apple don't get viruses".

Sadly if the "virus" used the delete function, they will be lost forever, but if not it maybe they are still on Googles servers, I would get them to log in from a safe source and see.

I have had iPhones since they first came out. currently I have the iPhone x. Its expensive but I use for pretty much everything so much so that my MacBook is almost redundant. It just works as has already been said and the face recognition for unlocking and using secure apps as well as Apple pay is faultless. 100% every time. Whatever iPhone you have if you go down that route get the largest memory you can afford.
