    Other Anyone else want aluminium sides on the iPhone 13 Pro/Max?

    Firstly, aluminium is actually three times more expensive than steel, so it's ironic stainless steel is reserved for the premium models. Aluminium is also lighter, which as iPhones grow bigger and thicker would keep the weight down. Perhaps Apple feel the shiny stainless steel looks more...

    Apple Watch 6 blue with black strap

    Hi all, I’m looking at the Apple 6 blue aluminium watch but wondering if anyone has pictures of it with a black strap. I can’t decide if it matches and will work for professional and casual look. I’m thinking space gray can go with any colour strap, therefore making it more versatile. Also...

    Series 4 Aluminum vs. Stainless Steel

    I currently have a space gray aluminum Apple Watch series 1 and want to get a series 4. My screen is in awful condition right now because of scratches.
