I wouldn't say the 'stock checker' saves you time ..... on 3 occasions I have used it and gone to local store to be told stock had been sent to another store and stock levels not updated...... frustrating to say the least!!
Yeah I wouldn't trust the C&C or stock checker. I purchased a nice kitchen tap half price at £64 using gift cards on C&C to Aintree, got a call the next day to say they had no stock even though was still available to C&C on website. Because I paid by gift card they couldn't refund automatically I had to waste a journey to get a £64 credit note which can only be used in store and not online. Wasn't amused :(

Can someone explain why Iphone deals get downvoted? I don't ever use the website just thought this was actually the best deal online.
The phone is way too limiting, just cannot compete with latest androids.


Claiming that the iPhone 7 can't compete with the latest androids is utter rubbish.


Certainly more than competes on sales

This is not the "best deal" JL have them in red for a hundred cheaper.


You're not helping here mcormack. At all.
I am an android user for donkey years and always hated apple pricing...

Just in case you think you are saving humanity by purchasing this product...
http://www.pinknews.co.uk/2017/03/24/apple-refuses-to-say-how-much-money-from-charity-red-iphone-will-go-to-fight-aids/
A company as rich as Apple could say what percentage of each purchase goes to charity. It could.
It could lead the way for other smaller companies benefiting from their semi-charitable purchases and be clear and open about how much of the actual customer's money goes to where it is so heavily implied.
Just my 2 cents.
Expired.

Seriously why are you all getting excited by ameasly £70 off. It's still £629, and will be the 'old' in a few months and design wise, gets destroyed by the s8 with its chunky bezel.

Free brainwashing for all kids!
Yep but not as bad as Microsoft almost giving away their software to schools. Every kid is taught how to use Windows and MS Office and are exposed to nothing else meaning when they get out into the world of work that is all they know...

Schools are there to prepare children for industry, which the vast majority of uses Microsoft products.


Yes as I said because they are the only product taught in schools. Back in the day we had a selection and competition which at the end of the day would be better.
OrribleHarry
90% of development is done on PC's all my developers use PC's as they are coding for industrial applications. Mac development is mainly for leasure and media applications. I bet they don't use what everyone else uses to teach kids to code......a £30 Raspberry Pi! No they will be using expensive Apple kit to promote it. Don't care what anyone says this is unethical product promotion.

I should have been more specific and said 90% of Appleprogramming is done on a macOS environment - not on an iPad running iOS with a virtual keyboard.

All businesses use Windows and Microsoft products. It's useful to know how they work.
My point exactly, if schools taught and used a variety of options rather than just MS we might still have competition! Remember all the choices we used to have back in the 80s/90s?

If you have a mhl compatiable phone you can connect to tv through hdmi port and watch in full hd. EE only allow you to watch bt sport on the device with ee's sim card in it. you can't chrome cast and on iPhone with tv out connector you get a warning message on not output. MHL phones the only way to go.

if you have a Windows phone, you can play it on a laptop / desktop pc and use an hdmi able to a tv.
Thank you so much for the heads up. I have managed to get this exact deal with retentions by quoting HUKD.

The pros have been out less than a week ?
Tell that to Fenwicks then - I've seen them displayed there for the past 6 months
Ive been reading about them for a year


I've read all the comments here and it's clear you are wrong Phil. The model advertised here has only just been released. You appear ignorant to that fact when trying to suggest a store has been selling them for months. Stop being a judgemental d1ck and just apologise for being wrong spactard.
I used laptops direct a couple of weeks ago. Monitor arrived, noticed the tiniest of marks on the plastic frame. they offered to replace or knock £50 off the price. I took the £50.

I'd probably use them again to be fair!

This price match includes the £4.95 Laptops Direct charges for standard delivery.

Are you taking out the Added care with John Lewis ?

I'm not sure on the price for the 10.5 inch model,but for the 12.9 inch it was £70 for 3 years accidental damage cover,which doesn't seem that bad when you consider Apple charge £89 for only 2 years.

Oh and you should do the decent thing and apologise to people for getting confused and getting defensive.

Tell me how long the "iPad Pro" has been out, then ?
A week ? Or do you then split hairs and then start wailing like a 5 year old that it is JUST the smaller one, also named the "Pro" ?
Give it a rest and by all means pay over the odds.

Why you asking me when the iPad Pro was released ? I already explained all the release dates and sizes.But I will tell you again if you genuinely want to know.

Original 12.9 inch iPad Pro - November 2015

good deal, spoke to retentions last night they offered me S8 for £30 (only 500mb data) and £49 upfront.

Clicked your "get deal" link but couldn't get the deal.

That's because it's a retention deal. Only of use if you're an existing customer looking to leave/play the system.

A good deal if that fits your circumstances..

I have seen others comment they got fake MAC lipsticks and other dodgy cosmetics/designer gear from these shopping sites. Maybe some do sell bona fide items, depending on the retailer they're hooking up with - but I wouldn't take the chance.
I wouldn't trust anything branded from these shopping sites, and that applies to Living Social, Wowcher and the rest. I bought a fake Ralph Lauren v-neck jumper from Wowcher about 18 months ago (and commented about it on HUKD). I found a weird wholesaler that was using the exact same stock codes Wowcher were using to advertise their RL jumpers (and Living Social carried the exact same deal as well).

Wowcher didn't put up any sort of fight after I submitted pictures, articles and web links, they just quietly credited my account. I bought a jumbo box of Ariel Washing Powder with my store credit - they can't fake that, can they? (though, you never know!!) :p

Anyone who wants a peek can look at my comments (and others') http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ralph-lauren-shirt-jumpers-28-99-wowcher-coggles-2279324?p=26089775

It's like getting a phone without a SIM. Th9e phone costs 699£ outright, so £751 is not to bad if you split it in 24 months. I thought everyone would get it, but ok.

..but they don't cost £699 do they OP - You ask for feedback then ignore it when it's given - iPhone 7 32GB is £499 on Very for another 24 hours! I thought you would 'get it' but ok (128GB is £599) :{
The deal is good, but the data is woeful. That won't help the thread.

I just don't get why anyone would want an iPhone and just 500mb. It's weird.
On second thoughts and my own opinion on the 7's - I would buy outright from Very, right now they're £100 off and then I'd get a decent sim only plan to go with it... :{

it's out of stock so I would say find a new offer cheers
Showing back in stock (gold phone only)
It was definitely in stock (gold phone only) on 12th June '17 at about 9:30am as I bought one and was in stock I think until about lunchtime. However, as this model has now been replaced I think it is unlikely there will be more stock coming. All of the other colours were out of stock.
thank you very much poster but this offer has been expired every time I go there it says out of stock so I don't recommend it to anyone else I am sorry maybe I mistaken but for the price that you have listed as been taken out it is not active anymore out of stock thank you
Expiring as out of stock. I think it's unlikely they'll get more in as it's the old 16GB model.

For £199 they're doing the 32GB version. Surely that's worth the extra tenner if you fancy this deal?
I don't think it's a deal so voted cold. It's been that price for ages as well and honestly now it's dated.

I got one refurbished, which was just a return and basically new, from Argos eBay for £179 2 or 3 years ago.
I can go and find proof if needed.
1 year warranty included just like with Apple.
Got it for less than what Apple is charging years later...

Apparently IOS 11 will be available for all 64-bit devices, iPad mini 2 is 64-bit, at least this is what I read.


You're right, just had a look and it is there. I swear I looked just after the announcement and the ipad mini 2 was absent.

Great music and a reasonable price, but sadly i'm on downloads only these days as my CD collection is beginning to take up too much space. Not sure I could justify moving back to a format I gave up 20 years ago and that takes up even more room than CD's.
It seems crazy! Apart from sound quality everything is against vinyl. They scratch easier, crackle, take up more space, more expensive to buy and have to be turned over half way through the album yet people love them. I wouldn't be surprised if they brought the Nokia 3310 back as well for the retro feel. ;)

Good deal but nowhere near as good as the 20% deal they did!

It depends what you buy. The new iPad Pro 64gb is £619. They are giving £100 back on this tablet so that makes the discount just over 16% so it's not 20% but it isn't bad. TBH you don't get discounts of £50 or £100 off Apple stuff anywhere else unless it's on the grey market.


No I agree. I got £183 back on my iPhone 7+ 256GB and you would have got a lot back on buying Macbook Pro. Still like you say it's a good deal and on some items very similar!

Comments like this on here do my nut in. It's 0% interest for a year. So you can still do "Save Now, Buy when you can afford it" as you put it...

It's the usual idiots. Post something ridiculous due to not even reading the deal. Also a lot of people just automatically vote Very deals cold no matter how good they are because they have poor credit records and can't take advantage of BNPL.

Ooooh, and it's gone negative. What a surprise!

Even though it's the best price out there at the moment except for one terrible supplier.

Wouldn't it be good if people voted on the deal, not because they didn't like the product?

That's it, I'm voting cold on all the protein powder and stuff like that.

Handy grinder this. Marked at £25 instore scans at £15. Decent length of lead 3m, 2 year warranty, two tooless guards (grinding + cutting), 1 grinding disc. Not marked as softstart but there is no kick when starting and starts off slowly so suspect it is. The disc guards are useful and easy to adjust or remove. Smart on off switch, won't run if you plug in with it switched on until it's switched off and back on.

You could use this without the guards.
Guards are fitted for a reason Only an idiot would remove a safety device from a power tool.
Or by someone who knows what they're doing. I remove the guards on all my disc cutters if they get in the way. In corners etc.
Anyone that knows what they are doing would leave the guard on.

It not only stops your hand coming into contact with a spinning blade but directs hot sparks away from your hand and in the case of breakage may direct blade fragments away from your face.

I use grinders daily, and it's easy to have a momentary loss in concentration or kick back. If your using a 1mm Knox disc then your fingers are gone.

If your doing it in your employment then good luck, seen people sacked for much less.

No, with these short handled ones the disc gets a little too close to your knuckles without a guard.
zzzz
To cut metal use the thin cutting discs , usually labelled for stainless ~£1.
The old-style thicker discs are rubbish in comparison.


I don't think I'm a pro with picking and no time lol. Do you have link for the grinder?

Amazon Drive, £55 for unlimited storage

I don't think so....
It was until today! Based on what they've just done in the US it'll be £55 per terabyte, per year although Prime subscribers will still get unlimited photo storage.
alu355
Amazon Drive, £55 for unlimited storage
Sadly not as of today - at least in the US. It'll be $60 per terabyte, per year. That makes Apple's 2 TB for £83 seem like good value - if you're in the Apple ecosystem already. My guess is that the removal of the unlimited tier will come to the UK imminently too.

If you already have an unlimited storage plan on Amazon Drive, you’ll keep it until renewal is due, and will then be automatically bumped down to 1TB. If you want to keep additional data, you’ll now have to pay an additional $59.99 per TB.

If you have more than 1TB of data and don’t upgrade, your account will be limited as of your renewal data, and you’ll lose data after six months.

When your paid storage subscription expires, your account will be considered in an over-quota status if your content stored is greater than the free storage quota on your account. If your account is in an over-quota status, you will not be able to upload additional files, and can only view, download, and delete content.

You have a 180-day grace period to either delete content to bring your total content within the free quota, or to sign up for a paid storage plan. After 180 days in an over-quota status, content will be deleted (starting with the most recent uploads first) until your account is no longer over quota.

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.
