looks nice but rather have a Garmin forerunner 235 for my activities for less money.
For me, the nice thing about this model (with this strap) is that it no longer comes with the strap so you have to spend £400 on the watch and then drop another £50 on this strap.

Hot from me.

If you have an iPhone and are interested in fitness tracking or just need a bit of motivation to move then these are really great accessories to have. You don't need to be a runner to appreciate the features, including waterproof design.

What's wrong with using the free health app?

Can't see any mention of this on their website, just says 1 year under specifications.

I see John Lewis are matching this price but have a two year warranty so buy it from them!

Personally I'd go for the 2017 iPad for the faster processor, regardless of the Air 2 being marginally thinner and having a laminated screen. Depends what your priorities are though, so still voted hot as this is a decent price if you'd prefer the Air 2.

Hi scottishpunter. The £40 cover is for items below £500, I believe. My old ipad (in its defender case) died horribly so I was specifically after cheap accidental cover.
Fair enough - did you move from an air to this? How have you found it. The whole thought of it being a step back is putting me off committing.

Just bought the 128G wi-fi version from John Lewis with the 3-year guarantee and the 3-year accidental cover was £40 extra. The offer of that extra year lasts until May 4th.

So was the £559 + £40 = £599? BT were selling the 12.9 inch Pro 256gb for £699 two weeks ago, with 1 year warranty. As above I would rather get a better product than worry about JL warranty.

Not quite sure why this is going so cold?
It's the best price that I've seen (other than Very!).
I'm really not an Apple fan, but the quality of their products that I've seen would indicate that a warranty isn't usually needed. I've never known anyone claim warranty on an iPad.

Agree, better to put that money towards nice protective cover

I got this from screwfix for £30 its not bad not brilliant I have one side locks easy one is a pain and its a bit heavier & bulkier than I thought it would be but it is sturdy has some cons to a B&D but has more pro's for me. Glad I only paid £30 for it myself but this is the best price you can get for one at the moment.
use this code to get it for £40 CLUBD86S4 it's £10 off £50 so you'll have to add something for a fiver
Bought one of these a couple of weeks ago. Just thought £45 was B&Q's regular price though, so didn't post it. I also found a £10 off code online so effectively got it for £35 with click & collect. Not used it yet though, so can't comment on how it performs.
I have a keter one and it's been useful for diy in a flat as I can store it under the couch
It is very portable and very good at the functions it is limited to but nowhere near as versatile as an old B&D Workbench. Sadly the new B&Ds are garbage and this is better than those for most things but still not great.

In fairness it is OK at this price. The folding system is very clever and I suspect this is what wows people but as a working tool, I prefer my 30 year old B&D.

Good point, it's within 60 days of purchase. I've put terms in the deal.
That's the description of AppleCare+ - This item is the traditional AppleCare that you could apply to a device anytime in the first year to extend to 2 years.
I'm pretty sure 1 year is for Macs, 60 days for iOS devices, last I bought any AppleCare anyway...wasn't too long ago.

As the post above this is the old one gives the same coverage as Legisation plus phone support.

I've had problems getting witcher 1 working on windows 10 as well, it installs but then gives me a "had to close" error at start up.
Got the game working now, works great under Linux, but still won't install/load under windows LOL
The giveaway is over according to the link
i didn't receive a code :(
Added heat for those that can get the game to work, but it refuses to run on any of the five systems I have access to here for various different claimed reasons (all of which are nonsense). So glad I didn't actually pay for this failure.

Bought a 16gb iPhone 6 on o2 refresh for £177 if you are ready to wait for an unlock code and cancel the airtime plan and hope you don't get charged an ETF. Phone works great if you have never used an iPhone. Heat added anyway.

Expensive for a 2 year old phone with the minimum possible memory. Cold from me.

I find it crazy how a phone that only 2 year old has lost £400 in value. My mother was laughing with her Nexus 4 which only cost £239 and she sold for £60, 4 years later.


what's your point exactly?

The iPhone 6 16gb was £539 at launch, so it's lost £330 in 2.5 years which is 61% of its original value. your mother's phone has lost 75% of its value since purchase. Cheaper items usually lose less actual cost because...they're cheaper. So obviously you'll lose a lot more money selling a brand new car two years later than you'll lose selling a PS4 two years later.

in this case though the stats aren't exactly that impressive on the part of this Nexus 4, and the Nexus 4 was a pretty rubbish phone anyway, so maybe it would have been worth paying more for a better phone. Some people buy phones to enjoy them, not to worry about how much money they'll be worth in three or four years.

Either way I wouldn't buy a 16GB phone these day, but for those who would it's still a decent phone in terms of performance.

I've just ordered this, I think it's a great deal for a S8 Plus, so HOT from me!
Basically you are paying this...
Phone £779 / 24 Months = £32.45
Line Rental £324.96 / 24 Months = £13.54
So £13.54 per month for 15Gb data, Unlimited Calls, Texts etc, is a cracking dead and it's a EE Max Plan.
Have you received it? I need 100% confirmation it's a max plan with eu data included (not just the normal 500MB) and top speed 4G etc. Ta
Just checked my order. It's 100% a max plan and has the EU benefits. Hope this helps.

Thanks for that, I was/am slightly sceptical because i haven't found anywhere else that can get close to this deal for the s8+ with no upfront cost. I need to temper my enthusiasm now and remind myself I'm still paying for a contract for my s7 edge so it would be rather foolish to go for this really but I could sell the s7 edge for £250 which would help, hmmm decisions decisions...

I cancelled my order as I was going to keep my S6... But then I ordered it again.
It will be here Tuesday. I'll let you know exactly what the plan is as soon as it's live on EE. I think that will happen before I get the phone.

Is this definitely a max plan cos it's not 100% clear on the website and does it include data in the EU? Looks like a cracking deal on the face of it, if it's definitely a max plan I might go for it

In fairness to Zeek they did refund instantly once I contacted them by email and refused to send requested documents.
I work in eCommerce and sometimes the card details will come up with warnings etc so I guess they're protecting themselves.
I bought some Google Play credit earlier today. Easy. PayPal and code in 5 minutes. Also got £5 off as first time user.

Zeek wanted my passport and driving license scanned and sent before allowing me a £15 iTunes digital card, WTF, they even accepted my order and took my PayPal payment first.
Had to contact them by email days later to ask why no digital code in account wallet to be told they needed these items first, refund requested ASAP, would not recommend.
I have ordered a few times with them. Never had any issues. That's very strange to ask you for the documents.

To be fair, this has been cheaper from currys in the past. I know, time machine etc.

That was the first gen watch, this is the series 1, with the upgraded processor.

The series 1 launched alongside the series 2 watch and is just as fast as it but the series 2 has additional waterproofing and a inbuilt GPS.


Ah yes, forgot the series 1 was actually the second version.

And yes, the price now is what matters.
I think the reason this is going cold , currys ebay were selling these £10 cheaper for Easter , but I toatally agree you can't jump in a time machine and you can't buy this anywhere cheaper right now so is a deal.
gr1340
To be fair, this has been cheaper from currys in the past. I know, time machine etc.

That was the first gen watch, this is the series 1, with the upgraded processor.

The series 1 launched alongside the series 2 watch and is just as fast as it but the series 2 has additional waterproofing and a inbuilt GPS.

I checked two stores last week - both had empty shelves. Not a new offier.
Did you ask them to check the stockroom? Both the stores I got them from didn't have them on the shelf. I just told them I'd checked they had stock before coming (to avoid the "if they're not on the shelf.....we aint got them" response).
Thanks for EAN code - will give this a go

Title looks great until you read the £175 upfront in your details.
Loved you in the first point break. Erm, not so keen on you in the rehash. Cold. :{
Is this not the cheapest contract for an iPhone 7 in terms of total cost? I don't understand why this is going cold?

Any Apple deal gets icy in here. I've not found anything cheaper as an overall cost. That would be the reason to vote cold - if it wasn't the cheapest deal for what you get. Don't worry about it. I'm sure whatever you post next will do way better (as long as it's not Apple).

Totally agree dude! Should never have been touched.

The occasional glass of this will not give anyone diabetes and I take comfort that stupidity is not contagious.

If only there was an option to enjoy a bottle of this with others, such as family members.
And maybe in moderation, instead of all in one sitting.

Thank you for posting this, Chrisredmayne: much appreciated. l've placed my order, just waiting for confirmation etc. My only niggle is the £30 cashback.

I mean really, crediting by cheque? That's just perverse!

I'm toying with this or a Samsung galaxy s7. I like ios and android. Just not sure about the smaller screen on this... Hmmmm

I have a 16gb SE, it's great but need more storage. I'm with EE and have a year left on my contract? Can I get this and have two contracts? Will they let me?
wakeywarrior
There's no comparison to a Galaxy S7. And with Android, the S7 just has the latest release and it's smoother than ever with many great new features. Top camera too.


I had an S7 for a week last week, fully intending to move back to Android after a year with the SE. The camera was amazing, beating the very decent iPhone SE hands down. Everything else was less impressive - even with 4GB of RAM, it still stuttered and lagged when scrolling through Facebook and some webpages. Seriously great hardware - but coming back to Android after 12 months away reminded me of why I finally gave in to iOS after many years last year. Just a personal opinion, by the way, and only offered in the interests of balance...

I always thought this site was for deals and not what people like or dislike... Very odd and ruins the meaning behind this site.
I disagree, a deal is very much in the eye of the beholder, there's absolutely no reason why you couldn't vote cold because an item is either overpriced (even if the cheapest price for that item), there's a better alternative or it's simply not very good for the money. I personally think of a 'deal' as a bargain, that is something that is for sale at a lower price than it's value, and that's the important bit, the value of an item is not defined just by price, but does it do a job better for the money than something else.

Very well said. You've brilliantly summed up what a 'deal' should be. If only more people could read what you wrote before they next vote hot on a £600 graphics card or an £800 phone.

I would rate this hot but you have to bear in mind. And from my experience. Currys/PC World are not to be trusted. If it says open box then I certainly couldnt be sure that the item hasnt been activated with iCloud etc.

Then again you would be covered if you purchased through PayPal, for me im holding out at least for a couple of days lol. Maybe Argos or someone might pop up with a deal, or even Currys PCworld instore with the 10% off voucher I posted earlier
Hot because Apple. High resale value, great products. Yeah I'm a fan, iBoy or whatever you wanna call it

Because it's Apple I would assume, and not a Series 2

Introducing Apple

Apple is a legendary global brand. Their stores, phones, symbol and reputation are famous across the world, and the majority of people reading this will have used an Apple product at some stage in the life. Their success has been based around creating cutting edge products to a high level of quality. Their products aren’t always the cheapest around but they are almost always the best. This guide explains why that is and how to find an Apple product that suits you.

From a Small Tech Firm to a Global Player

Apple’s story begins in April 1976, when Steve Wozniak, Steve Jobs and Ronald Wayne got together in a garage in Los Altos, California and founded Apple, Inc. At first, their plan was to sell kits to make personal computers but the firm soon branched out into mass-produced systems like the Apple II, which appeared in 1977.

During the 1980s, the company battled against IBM for the high-end home computer market, launching its famous Macintosh range in 1984 and updating it throughout the decade. They then moved on to focus on portable computers, pioneering the modern laptop with the PowerBook in 1991.iphone 6s

However, the company laid low until the late 1990s, when it really began its ascent. The iMac debuted in 1998, with its futuristic look and high-end specifications. With its emphasis on attractive looks and quality internal features, the iMac launched a series of revolutionary Apple products from the late 90s onwards.

The iPod appeared in 2001, capitalising on the sudden growth in mp3 usage. The first iPhone appeared in 2007, kick starting the era of smartphones, and it was joined by the elegant iPad in 2010. All the while, Apple’s laptop range continued to develop as well, leading to the MacBook collection which ran from 2006 to 2012, and the reintroduced MacBook which returned in 2015 and continues to see innovative updates.

Recent years have seen new iPhones, iPads and MacBooks, like ultra-light MacBook Airs. Apple have also moved into completely new territory with their Apple Watch (which appeared in 2015) as well as new accessories like the Apple Pencil. It can be hard to keep track of the options available, which is where this buyer’s guide will come in handy.

What Can You Use Your Apple Devices For?

As the history of Apple suggests, the company’s devices have a huge range of applications.

MacBooks are a staple among architects, web designers, students and artists thanks to their reliability, excellent GUI and range of applications. iPads are a common sight in businesses, conferences and even as point of sale devices, as well as in living rooms across the country. As for iPhones, their level of functionality stretches from simple calls and texts to social networking, gaming, video capture and navigation.

iPhones: Current Models and Specifications

Firstly, let’s take a brief look at the iPhone. Introduced in 2007, the iPhone has seen numerous new versions in its lifespan. For this buyer’s guide, it makes sense to focus on the most recent versions: the iPhone 6S and the iPhone 7.

The iPhone 7 (and the 7 Plus) arrived in mid-2016 and comes with the following specifications:

  • Dimensions: 13.8 x 6.71 x 7.1cm
  • Weight: 138g
  • Operating system: iOS 10.0
  • Processor: 2.34 GHz quad-core (two used) 64-bit
  • Graphics processor: Apple G9 custom GPU (hexa-core, based on PowerVR GPUs)
  • Memory: 2GB
  • Disk space options: 32, 128 or 256GB
  • Battery life: 14 hours
  • Screen size: 12cm Retina HD, with a resolution of 1334 × 750 pixels
  • Camera: Rear: Sony Exmor RS IMX315 12MP Front: 7MP
  • Audio connection: No stereo audio jack. Includes a Lightning based audio connection.

iPhone 7: Water resistant

The iPhone 6S (and the 6S Plus) was released in late 2015 as an update to the iPhone 6. Fundamentally similar to the 6, the 6S added a stronger frame and a better camera, as well as the following basic specifications:

  • Dimensions: 13.8 x 6.71 x 7.1cm
  • Weight: 143g
  • Operating system: iOS 9.0
  • Processor: 1.85 GHz dual-core 64-bit ARMv8-A
  • Graphics processor: PowerVR GT7600 (hexa-core)
  • Memory: 2GB
  • Disk space options: 16, 32, 64 or 128GB
  • Battery life: 8 hours 15 minutes, charge time of 150 minutes.
  • Screen size: 12cm Retina HD, with a resolution of 1334 × 750 pixels
  • Camera: Rear: Sony Exmor RS IMX315 12MP Front: 5MP
  • Audio connection: 3.5mm stereo audio jack

As the specs suggest, there isn’t much to choose between the latest iPhone 6S and the iPhone 7. The iPhone 7 has more disk space, a slightly better camera, longer battery life and an overhauled CPU, but the lack of a stereo jack goes against it. Either model is close to the top of the range as far as smartphones are concerned.

Major Alternatives to Apple’s iPhone

Before buying an Apple iPhone, it’s important to know whether you really need to pay extra for an Apple product or whether a smartphone from a different manufacturer will do just as well.

There’s no shortage of competition in the smartphone sector. For example, the iPhone 7 is running against models like the Sony Xperia XZ, which has a much higher screen resolution and accommodates micro SD cards. It also has a 3.5mm jack connection, which may suit audio fans.

Then there’s the Samsung Galaxy S7, which comes with an eye-catching glass screen and chassis design and has a larger screen. It’s slightly more powerful than the iPhone 7 but more fragile too.

When considering models like the S7 or the XZ, it’s also worth thinking about compatibility. Remember, one of the best aspects of iPhones is their ability to link with iPads, iPods and other Apple devices, which can vastly expand their range of capabilities.

The Latest iPad: Details and Specifications

The iPad was unveiled in January 2010 as Apple’s marquee tablet, and since then it has been constantly refined. At the moment, the latest models are the iPad Pro (launched in 2016) and the compact iPad Mini 4. Let’s see how they stack up:

First off, the iPad Pro:

  • Dimensions: 30.5 x 22 x 0.69 cm
  • Weight: 713g
  • Processor: Dual-core 2.26 GHz (Twister)
  • Graphics processor: PowerVR Series 7 (12-core graphics)
  • Display size: 12.9 inches (33 cm)
  • Screen resolution: 2048 x 2732 pixels
  • Operating system: iOS 9.0
  • Memory: 32, 128 and 256 MB options
  • Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack included
  • Battery life: 10 hours

iPad Pro: What’s a Computer?

And the iPad Mini 4:

  • Dimensions: 20.3 x 13.5 x 0.61 cm
  • Weight: 304g
  • Processor: Dual-core 1.5 GHz Typhoon
  • Graphics processor: PowerVR GX6450 (quad-core graphics)
  • Display size: 7.9 inches (20 cm)
  • Screen resolution: 1536 x 2048 pixels
  • Operating system: iOS 9.0
  • Memory: 16, 32, 64 an 128MB options
  • Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac
  • 3.5 mm headphone jack included
  • Battery life: 10 hours

Both models are top of the range tablets that combine the functionality of iPhones with many of the abilities of MacBook models. You can use them to capture video footage, take photos, stream music, browse the web, play games and choose from over 475,000 apps on the iTunes Store.ipads

But what about the drawbacks? Well, both models come with hefty price tags, but you’d expect that from Apple devices. Users report that both models are ideal for business and home applications but they do have some reservations. For example, the smart keyboard doesn’t include all of the buttons you’d expect, the web browser shows mobile optimised sites instead of ordinary sites and its storage capacity can’t be expanded. More damningly, both iPads are relatively fragile. They are high-end but that won’t matter much if they shatter when dropped.

Are iPads the Right Tablet for You?

Apple’s iPads are some of the best tablets around, but they are far from the only option. If you are thinking about making a tablet purchase, have a look at the competition. That includes Microsoft’s Surface Pro 4. It won’t appeal to loyal Apple devotees, but the Surface Pro offers great screen resolution, up to 1TB of storage and 1080p video, all high spec stuff.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 is another alternative. It pushes the iPad Pro close on every measure and may be slightly cheaper. The same applies to the Google Pixel, which may have the edge when it comes to running Android apps.

Have a look around and double check that the iPad is for you. Both the iPad Mini and the iPad Pro are at the top of the tree for general computing, audio and visual capture and web browsing, but they aren’t alone.

The MacBook: Recent Models and Specs

Apple’s MacBook is their flagship laptop. First launched back in 2006, the original MacBook ran for six years before being discontinued in 2012. However, the MacBook Pro, a higher-end model, continued to be produced, as did the lightweight MacBook Air. In 2015, Apple brought back the basic MacBook, completing a trio of notebooks that remains in place.

Let’s have a quick look at the specifications of the two main models: the most recent MacBook Pro and the MacBook Air. Firstly, the 15-inch MacBook Pro:

  • Screen size: 15.4 inches
  • Screen resolution: 2880 x 1800 pixels
  • Dimensions: 1.5 x 34.9 x 24.7 cm
  • Weight: 1.83kg
  • Processor: 2.6GHz quad-core sixth-gen Intel Core i7
  • Graphics processor: AMD Radeon Pro 450
  • Memory: 16GB RAM
  • Disk space: 256GB SSD
  • Ports: 4 Thunderbolt ports, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Battery life: 10 hours

Pushing the World Forward: Apple MacBook Pro

Secondly, the 13-inch MacBook Air, released in 2015:

  • Screen size: 13 inches
  • Screen resolution: 1440 x 900 pixels
  • Dimensions: 1.7 x 32.5 x 22.7 cm
  • Weight: 1.35kg
  • Processor: Intel Core i5 (5th Gen) 1.6GHz
  • Graphics processor: Intel HD Graphics 6000
  • Memory: 4GB RAM
  • Disk space: 128 or 256GB flash storage, no optical drive
  • Ports: 2 Thunderbolt ports, 2 USB 3.0, 3.5mm headphone jack
  • Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-fi: 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
  • Battery life: 12 hours

These are two powerful notebooks and millions of Apple fans have upgraded to the latest MacBook models to take advantage of their technical specifications. However, as usual, they come with a price premium for the Apple brand and will satisfy most everyday laptop users.

However, they aren’t perfect for everyone. For instance, they don’t include SD card readers, a small problem for most people but not for regular digital camera users who need to seamlessly transfer data onto their Mac. The undersized USB ports could also be an issue for some users who need to connect external devices (gamers in particular.

How Do MacBooks Shape Up Against the Competition?

MacBooks retain a loyal fan base for their reliability, speed, graphical abilities and the support provided by Apple when things go wrong. However, you’ll find a wealth of other options, so don’t be hasty. You may find that models from Sony, HP, Samsung, Lenovo or other manufacturers do the job just as well, for much less.

If you need a really impressive high-end laptop, you can’t do much better than the MacBook Pro, but the Dell XPS 13 comes with a couple of USB ports which will suit some users better, as does the Microsoft Surface Book, which doubles up with a crystal clear display.

In the lightweight corner, there are some excellent budget options like the Lenovo Ideapad, which might best the MacBook Air in terms of battery life. There are also stripped down, basic options like Acer’s Chromebooks which are ultra-cheap and simple to use (even if they are let down by the lack of functionality).

The iPod Touch and Nano: Specifications

The iPod emerged in 2001 just as file sharing was taking off and the term ‘mp3’ was entering the mainstream. Apple were on the crest of the wave, as usual, having launched their iTunes music market eight months previously. The iPod was a natural extension, allowing Apple customers to play their favourite tunes wherever they went.

Since then, innovation hasn’t let up, and the current range of iPods brings plenty to the table. Here are some of the fundamental technical specs to look out for. Firstly, the iPod Touch:

  • Dimensions: 12 x 5.8 x 0.6cm
  • Weight: 88g
  • Disk capacity: 16, 32, 64 or 128GB
  • Display size: 4 inches
  • Display resolution: 1136 x 640 pixels
  • Processor: A8 chip with 64-bit architecture and M8 motion coprocessor
  • Camera: 8MP iSight camera, with autofocus, face detection, geotagging and timer mode
  • Video: Up to 1080 hp, 120fps slow motion and time-lapse option
  • Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-fi: 802.11a/b/g/n/ac
  • Audio formats supported: Mp3, AAC, Protected AAC, HE-AAC, MP3 VBR, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, AAX+, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV
  • Video: MPEG-4 up to 2Mbps, 640x480 pixels, 30 frames per second
  • Battery: music playback of 40 hours

And the iPod Nano:

  • Dimensions: 7.7 x 4 x 0.54cm
  • Weight: 31g
  • Display size: 2.5 inches
  • Display resolution: 240x432 pixels
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • Audio formats supported: Mp3, AAC, Protected AAC, HE-AAC, MP3 VBR, Audible Enhanced Audio, AAX, AAX+, Apple Lossless, AIFF, WAV
  • Video: MPEG-4 up to 2Mbps, 720x576 pixels, 30 frames per second
  • Battery: Playback time of 30 hours

These two products both access the iTunes database, but the Nano relies on that access to playback music. It has no internal storage, simply providing an ultra-lightweight way to access the files on your account or computer (and also requires a computer for use). The Touch is very different, resembling the original iPod with its disk space, but adding a camera and video capture facilities on top. It’s an all-round entertainment centre that is ideal for travellers.

Are there any Competitors to the iPod to think About?

Apple’s iPods are great devices to use with other Apple computers or tablets, as they synch up to iTunes seamlessly. However, for some people, the necessity to sign onto iTunes could be an issue. If you just want a solid mp3 player that can be loaded with CDs or files from the web, have a look at some of the competition.

The Sony Premium Walkman is a good alternative, offering more disk space, as does the Pioneer XDP-100R-K. Both have similar touch screens to the iPod Touch and both are ideal for casual mp3 listeners.

As for the Nano, there aren’t many similar devices. The closest competitor is probably the Sandisk Sansaclip, which can hold 2,000 songs in its memory and has a handy FM radio tuner, both of which are advantages over the Nano.

The Apple Watch: Specifications and Alternatives

Recent years has seen an explosion in the fitness wearables and smart tech market and, predictably, Apple has been at the forefront. Launched in April 2015, the Apple Watch was designed to complement the iPhone. Users can download apps from their phone that work with the watch, including messaging tools, notifications, fitness tracking tools, maps, music streaming and many more functions.

It’s a neat piece of kit that adds something extra to your smartphone and comes with the following basic specs:

  • Size: Comes in two sizes at 38 and 42mm
  • Display resolution: 272×34 (38mm), 312×390 (42mm)
  • Bluetooth 4.0, wi-fi: 802.11 b/g/n
  • Power: Rechargeable 3.8V battery
  • Memory: 512MB
  • Disk storage: 8GB

Since its launch, the Apple Watch has attracted some fanatical fans and its fair share of criticism. On the plus side, it looks attractive and genuinely adds handy features to your iPhone. With the Apple Watch, you’ll be able to walk or jog and receive notifications (and find your way via the maps app if you get lost).

On the other hand, some people have pointed out inaccuracies in the fitness tracking apps (which are being refined), switching between apps can be clunky and you’ll need an iPhone to even set it up. So, if you are an Android user and you want to give it a try, the only option is to buy an iPhone as well…hardly a practical option.

If you don’t like the sound of the Apple Watch, specialist fitness trackers like FitBit are more accurate and have a wider range of features. There are also some stylish multi-purpose smartwatches around. As with all Apple products, the Apple Watch is an elegant, well-designed item but there are other options.

Accessories for Apple’s Product Range

So, you’ve decided to buy an iPhone 7, a MacBook Air or an iPod Touch. But what kind of accessories are on offer to make your device even more functional? It turns out, quite a lot. Here are some of the most popular:

  • The Apple Pencil - Designed for use solely with the iPad Pro, the Apple Pencil is the company’s digital stylus. Looking just like an ordinary pencil, it is able to detect pressure and angle, translating this perfectly into on screen content.
  • Apple Airpods – Apple’s earphones (or ‘airpods’) automatically connect to iPhone 7s, Apple Watches, iPads and MacBooks. They are set up to start playing when they are placed in your ear and shut down immediately when you take them out, a remarkable piece of engineering.
  • Fitness Accessories - Apple also offers a range of specialist fitness accessories, including skipping ropes, golf swing analysers and sleep trackers.

Strolling With Apple Airpods

The range of accessories for iPods, iPhones, iPads and Macs is dizzyingly large. Take a look at the Apple homepage at www.apple.com to see if any accessories make sense for you, then check to see whether they are bundled with Apple products. That way, you may well save money on the purchase.

Where and When to Make an Apple Purchase

Apple manufactures some of the slickest, most accessible and beautiful digital devices around. But where is the best place to actually buy them? iPhones and iPads are rarely cheap, so selecting the best retailer can be a very cost effective decision.

One place to look for deals is the Apple Store. The manufacturer often runs discounts on its own products, particularly when product overhauls are imminent, and you’ll find bundle deals with accessories and phones or netbooks as well. Head to the Apple HotUKDeals listings to see their current discounts.

If Apple don’t have any deals at the moment, don’t worry. Retailers like GiffGaff, John Lewis, Argos, Currys, Amazon, Very and Maplin all sell Apple products, often far more cheaply than Apple themselves. So shop around. You’ll be surprised at the bargains available.

Time your purchase wisely too. As Black Friday approaches in November, look out for Apple deals, and do the same in the January Sales. Check the listings in September as well. Apple regularly introduce new products then, so there may well be great deals on older products.

Make Huge Savings on Apple Products With HotUKDeals

Apple’s phones, tablets, mp3 players, watches and laptops are some of the most technically impressive, easy to use and attractive products around. However, their quality doesn’t always come cheap. Drive down the cost of buying Apple products by checking their HotUKDeals listings - the best place to find discounts on iPads, iPhones and many more Apple products.
