It’s taken a while, and although I’ve loved my iPhone 7 Plus, upgrade time has finally come around. Now I know there are gonna be two or three new iPhones next week, but the monthly charge of those on a UK cellphone contract would have been astronomical. Made perfect sense to upgrade to an X now (skipping the 8 completely), and then in between one and two years’ time, I have the option of upgrading for free (again) to whatever is the latest phone at that particular time.
I unboxed the phone this morning, but I don’t want to use it yet as I’m still waiting for a soft cover to arrived for it, so I haven’t even switched it on yet! As usual, you can click on each picture a couple of times for a larger image. I’ve edited them in Photoshop to make the physical file size a lot smaller. Also airbrushed out a lot of anomalies. The pics were taken with my old iPhone 7 Plus, which is currently on eBay until tomorrow.
It’s always a pleasure to get to unbox a new Apple product. This time it’s a pair of the latest AirPods. As usual, the attention to detail in the packing is as startling as the item itself. There seems to be something oh-so satisfying about unwrapping that shrink-wrap that encases the box. The AirPods need no further explanation: enjoy the pictures and remember to click on the images for a larger view.
As usual, click on the pictures for the bigger … er … picture!
Having made a complete horlicks of my girlfriend’s iPhone 5C repair yesterday, the only sensible thing to do was go out and get a replacement. So after a fair amount of fannying about at the local EE shop, we (eventually) got this as the next ‘best’ thing.
Pretty sure I had one of these in my dark, distant iPhone-owning past. Not a bad phone at all really, and the only one EE would give us for nothing. Still seems tiny compared with the gargantuan 7 Plus. Just hope to god she’s backed the 5C up ….
My partner, Bee and I went to the park yesterday a) to blow the cobwebs out in the cool London air, and for me to test the Depth of Field effect currently beta-ing on the new iPhone 7 Plus. And there’s nothing to it more than taking a picture – the electronics do the rest for you!
As you know, I find nothing finer than unboxing a new piece of tech, and I’m always more than thrilled to share the unboxing photos with you. Today we have an iPhone 5S – nothing fancy – just a replacement for my 5C which had been playing up. The card box replaces the flimsy plastic effort that housed the 5C, and comes complete with inner plastic tray, leaflet envelope which also houses the SIM removal tool and accompanying Apple stickers! Don’t forget you can click on the pictures for better quality images.
It’s always nice to get a new device, so that quality unboxing photos can be made available.
