    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...

    Used cellular SS S5 vs New GPS only aluminum S6? (don’t care for health features)

    As the title says, I’m on the market for an Apple Watch after years ago gave up on series 0 and going back to my mechanicals. I was thinking to get the cheapest I could since I only care about the ability to unlock my iPhone while wearing a mask on the next iOS 14.5 updates. But the AW3 older...

    Does the normal silver Milanese loop scratch the silver stainless steel watch?

    I’ve read about the graphite Milanese loop scratching things because of its DLC coating. I ordered the silver stainless steel Apple Watch 6 with the normal silver Milanese loop. Seeing the gloom and doom about the graphite Milanese loop has me concerned. Is this also an issue with the...

    Polish Apple Watch SS: Cape Cod vs Autosol

    I recently purchased a Series 2 stainless steel Apple Watch. I read lots online about remove scratches and gave Cape Cod a try. Using Cape Cod, it removed fine scratches and marks but nothing else. Autosol works on deeper scratches better, and it feels thicker, so it must be more coarse. So...

    S3 sports owner, downgraded to S2 Staineless steel and loving it!

    Well, I was always under the impression the latest updates are better, but Apple are proving me wrong. IOS14 has been a stinker so far (battery drain) and WatchOS7 wasn't that much of an upgrade from WatchOS6. I took the plunge and downgraded from an S3 LTE sports model to an S2 stainless steel...

    iPhone 12 Pro Anyone else undecided between Silver and Gold for iPhone 12 Pro?

    My heart says gold, but my brain says silver - anyone else feel the same? Why Silver? It is the ONLY Pro color to seemingly have a polished stainless steel without PVD coating - in my thinking, it means it will be easily polishable with Cape Cod polishing cloths, especially if I intend to have...

    Which scratches more easily and more visibly? Stainless steel gold or stainless steel silver?

    I can’t decide between the two if I purchase the Apple Watch series 6. I have a SS gold series 5 and so far it’s not showing any scratches. However, I am quite opting for the SS silver this time and I’ve never had one before, so I’m just wondering between the two which one scratches more easily...

    How do you keep the sport bands from getting stuck?

    Hey guys, So I recently bought an OEM Rose Red sport band from someone and I just love the color, but the band is quite difficult to put on and take off. It almost feels like I have to force it in and yank it out. All my other bands go in and out with ease, so I’m not sure what I can do to make...

    Other Should Apple consider using frosted glass and unpolished stainless steel in a future iPhone?

    Frosted glass provides all the benefits of normal glass, except gloss. This means that it is more resistant to scratches and does not collect fingerprints and smudges. Here's what it looks like (Sony Xperia Z5): One disadvantage is that the colors look a little dull, but I'm willing to...

    Black or Silver SS

    I am about to purchase my first Apple Watch. A series 4 44mm SS version as I am always busy DIYing etc so feel the extra money for the sapphire screen would be well spent. My question is that I am edging towards the black version as I feel it looks better but I am concerned about scratches...

    Best Bands for SSG?

    I’m trying to figure out which bands will look nice with the stainless steel gold. A lot of the bands available still only have stainless steel and black lugs which makes me uncertain if it would pair well with gold. The only colors I’m sure about are the horizon blue and red sports band from...

    Request: Show me the worst possible scratch ever on a Space Black Apple Watch.

    Ive heard the claims that SBSS is indestructible. S0s and S1s still “look like the day they were purchased.” 700 days of 23 hour use and not a mark on them. Are the rumors true? Is a scratch on a SBSS like the Bigfoot of the tech world? Surely the sheen of the SBSS must fade or something? (I am...

    Once and for all, Space Black stainless or Space Gray aluminum?

    Those who have owned both, Space Black stainless and Space Gray aluminum, from S0-S3, knowing what you know from experience and knowing the S4 costs $749 and $529 respectively, which do you buy and why? Why did you switch from one to another? Did you switch back/want to switch back? I am asking...

    Request: Post pictures of your Space Black SS "patina"

    Let's see those SBSS series 0-3's with scratches. I'd like to know what they look like and how bad it could get. Also given you can't polish SBSS, how do people make their scratches less noticeable?
