Thought it looked interesting but I've decided it's a bit gimmicky. Surely there are cheaper apps that do that sort of thing anyway?

Also will need a lightning adaptor and today's iPad are thinner and smaller so chances are it won't sit very snugly either.


3M padded strips as per YouTube guide is all you need for a snug fit.

How can an app give you hardware features like XLR ports? :|

I've voted this hot as I used to be a sound engineer in the early 90's, worked with a few famous faces but no point name dropping it's boring :)
I can't actually think of a credible use for this but I guess some one can make use of it. 4 channel hardware EQ? The 1960's was 50 years ago or so, good luck with it if you buy it, maybe the knobs can be reprogrammed although they're not rotary encoders so again that's a limited idea.
Go on, tell us who. It's not boring.
Nah he's right I worked for Robbie Williams management, worked and hung out with Bafta winners.. my extended circle of friends include a musician who started a band with a former member of The Jam, members of Massive Attack, Portishead, Cocteau Twins.. I turned down a recording deal offer from the La's manager, and I hung out with a relative of Brian Epstein. Just recently I was involved in a session at the recording studio where Plan B's first album was recorded. Brian Eno's brother just posted me a CD from the studio. I used to drink with Nico... but mentioning stuff like this is crass and boring, and if they are true friends you just don't name drop famous people so I'll probably just delete this post later.

But it will be etched forever now I've commented on it :)

You are very welcome :) Enjoy.
Thanks OP, claimed.
It's the front page banner on the App Store.

Now updated showing this game as the "free app of the week".

This one is a paid game, perhaps because it is the newest one?

FREE App of the Week on iOS Appstore

I didn't know AppStore does this promotions, is there a page that we can monitor to see what's available in real time?

And, I can see loads of "cut the rope" games that are free, is this title any different to all others that are free already? Just wondering...

Did anyone buy this deal? How do you get the controller? It's showing full price in my basket
Review on the controller https://youtu.be/Se21u9dkM-4
I bought a steel series keyboard before my current one. After a year or so a bunch of the keys started randomly registering douple presses. Also had a mouse from them where the mousewheel stiffened up until it became unusable.

Not impressed by them. Premium pricing for things that don't last.

designaw - "Great to see them go free. I much prefer Pages and Numbers to Word and Excel"

IgnatiusJ - "Why do you say that designaw? They get such bad reviews. Just curious."

designaw - "I find the interface clearer and simpler to use and less cluttered and complex than Word and Excel. I've done a lot of complex layout projects on Word for clients and it is appalling, so many bugs with styles and so unreliable. I do my accounts with Numbers and it does everything I want it a much simpler and attractive manner. I do my own work on Pages and Numbers and client work in Word and Excel when I have too. I'm haven't read the reviews but I used Apple Works in the old days and the new apps are a great improvement and ideal for anyone looking for a suite with much of Office's functionality and compatibility but with a more polished and considered interface that feels like a made for Mac application rather than a port from Windows."

Thank you very much for your explanation. I really appreciate that.

Well I just tried that for 10 minutes, it's rubbish (IMHO), just got a refund. I remember playing the original for a whole weekend once (and I mean a whole weekend :) ) but that 1982 version was better than the version I just tried, disappointing.
Well that's disappointing to hear. Maybe I'll try it with rose-tinted glasses on
this game is alright but really don't see the difference between each year. they don't really improve the game tbh. Plus whoever pays RRP for this is just plain stupid or a rich idiot

It's about £20 for the In App Purchases. Are these essential or just time savers?


Erm honestly u don't need em all. It can get a bit annoying when u start losing to crap teams and also boring when u can't really afford to buy decent players. So some may just make it a little less boring. I've always ended up with a couple of the extras and I end up playing for a couple of months before I then get bored again.

updated OP to show firmware update file location
So just got mine - couple of issues; imation has been shut down and the firmware doesn't support current iOS versions!

However, you can download v5.0 from the web (there's a youtube vid showing where - sorry not got the link handy at the moment)

Update the firmware (make sure you run in admin mode). It then works fine with my iOS 10 iPhone SE and acts as a flash drive connected to a PC, so actually it *might* well work fine for VLC playback (I'm assuming that was meant as on a non-iOS device).


Edited By: Sid.Harper on Apr 05, 2017 11:42
I think that's exactly what it can't do (thanks, Apple)
Any idea if could load downloaded films from pc to it, to then playback with VLC - thinking of for kids in the car?
Does it work with ipad?

Was looking at this deal last week and decided not to purchase straight away- so annoyed now that the price has gone back up!!
Does anybody have any idea if they would be likely to do this deal for £379 again or was it really just a once off?? SO annoyed to have missed out!

Hi As the price at John Lewis has gone back up I tried the Very option but even with the 20% discount i can only get the price down to £390 delivered. Am i doing something wrong? Appreciate any help with this


I don't think iPhones qualify for the 20%, looks like they are classed as electronics and therefore you'd get 10% cash back.

Whilst I'm looking forward to the deeper integration, it's a shame that rather than extend its 3rd party integration, they'll likely squash it; Google has already gone!

These time machine comments are so boring. AJ92 was pointing out that the hub + remote was available at a much lower cost very recently. Yes it's no longer available but it gives context and with this information most people will probably agree this isn't a good deal.
Can you still get it at a lower price? No. Is this the cheapest price you can get it for today? Yes.
No one is questioning that.
Does the fact it's the cheapest price you can get it today make it a hot deal? No.

Yes, looks like a game with a difference and would be particularly for people who garden
Not my scene though, but interesting
Purchased, need something for my occasional fights and Sudoku is doing my head in now. At £1, can't go wrong, even if it only lasts me one flight! Thanks OP.
Tengami and Prune - both games are atmospheric, contemplative and peaceful. Very relaxing And stunningly beautiful. The graphics and movements are just striking, and the music really adds to the zen vibe.
Prune does not seem to want to challenge you to the point of making your blood pressure rise.
I'm an experienced console gamer but I recently got a capable smartphone for the first time and am keeping my eyes open for mobile exclusives I should get. I love unique games, especially short story based ones which stick with you. I know nothing about this other than what you've told me, all I can think of is Tengami on Wii U, am I close? Or is it more like Flower, or Proteus?
Anyway, would you recommend it as something memorable or is it just a time filler? Thanks

Good game series. I wish they'd stuck more closely to the style of part 1 though and avoided the need to repeat bits (which spoilt the play out of the story.) Wish Sorcery 4 would very a decent discount!

Anybody used this or a similar product? How is it different to a MiFi?

Can it be used to make calls from iPad and crucially can it make it App Store think the iPad is an iPhone and download Whatsapp?
seems to only allow 1 sim a t a time, not the iphones built in sim and this at the same time? anyone know if thats correct?
4g?
So do you put anything in the iPhone at all with this? It looks like you are relying on an app and this extra device/thing to make the calls and send between your phone?

Need some help here please. I bought one of these phones two weeks ago, Friday 10th & it was delivered saturday 11th. Very happy with it, it was in very good condition. Today I decided to cancel the airtime as most on here do, but before calling them I went to the O2 site to request unlock code. I then got this message:

Thank you for your unlatching request for IMEI ***************. The
mobile number that you provided is ************.

I'm sorry, we have not been able to unlatch your device at this time.
The reason given is:

The mobile number provided has not been used with the handset IMEI
provided. The two will need to be associated before we can unlatch.

Thank you,

Now I had put the sim in the phone earlier today, but hadn't used it to make or receive any calls. My dilemma now is if I cancel the airtime tomorrow, will I still be able to get it unlocked? When I try to request the unlock code again on the O2 site, I get the message "You've already submitted this device for unlocking ". And tomorrow is my last day for the 14 day cooling off period.


I made a call for a few seconds then requested the code via online chat. Came through in a few hours. Then I cancelled airtime

Giffgaff now has the se 16gb at 319, John Lewis 329. Word has gone out to shift them but clearly the retailers are not allowed to move too far. It is hard to know what the upcoming Apple plan is - ditch the 16gb model and or upgrade the internals?
I imagine also 6S will suddenly go out of stock too...
new iPhones SE come with 32GB or 128GB and same prices as before.

Just make a one minute call to another phone and then O2 should be able to register your mobile number. This will enable them to unlock your iPhone.

apple logoiPad, iPhone, iPod: Running With iOS

Underneath every computer or smartphone, there lies an “operating system”. This is the foundation upon which the apps, browsers and games you play are built. It enables different devices to communicate seamlessly with each other, provides access to libraries of tools, games and media files, and allows users to customise their devices (within limits). In short, it’s the nerve centre for all Apple devices.

But how does iOS work and is it the best option for you? With stiff competition from Android (and even Windows), this isn’t an academic question. Choosing the wrong iOS could result in you having a phone that fails to meet your needs, costing you hundreds of pounds to find a substitute.

This buyer’s guide will explain everything you need to know to make an informed iOS purchase from HotUKDeals merchants.

iOS: Operating Apple´s Devices

iOS was specifically developed by Apple to power its revolutionary iPhone range of smartphones, which first went on sale in 2007.

The way that the iPhone delivered apps and content quickly became its defining feature, something that was almost solely due to the quality of the iOS interface. Thanks to iOS, the phone offered users a multi-touch interface, with a touchscreen and a range of buttons, enabling them to do far more with their phone than older models had permitted.

Within a couple of years, the iOS standard had been integrated into iPads and iPods (after the iPod Touch arrived in late 2007). This didn’t just make it easier to get to grips with various Apple devices though. The tech giant also cleverly created a network of devices that could work together, sharing content and functionality – all thanks to their dependence on iOS.

Since 2007, iOS hasn’t stood still. Every year (usually in September), Apple releases a new iteration. We’ve currently reached iOS 10 and the development of iOS 11 is already well underway. With each new version, the system becomes better adapted to the most recent iPhone or iPad technology, adding new features like switching between portrait and landscape mode or fingerprint identification.

What Are the Key Features of iOS?

iOS is the front-end of the iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad range. That means it is the first place users arrive at when they boot up their devices and the way they can then access secondary apps. Here are some of the system’s key features:

  • The Home Page – The first thing you’ll see when you boot up iOS. Features high resolution icons for all of your apps, a gauge showing how much charge you have left, the time and date, as well as a bottom bar where you can pin your most commonly used apps. The background can be customised to create the right ambience, as can the organisation of the user’s icons.
  • Sub Folders – If you want to bring a group of apps together into one pool, you can add up to 12 in folders. This is a handy feature if you have a set of games, apps related to work, fitness apps or navigation tools and want to keep them separate from everything else.
  • Notification Centre – When Apple or app developers need to run an update or inform customers about anything else, their messages arrive at the iOS Notification Centre. You can also use the centre to bring up notification histories.
  • The App Store – If you need to download apps onto your iOS device, all you need to do is head to Apple’s App Store, which can be found on the home screen of any iOS phone or tablet.

Those are the basic features of iOS, but what about the most recent version, iOS 10? Released in September 2016, iOS 10 brought the following additional elements to the table:

  • Find My AirPods – Apple’s new generation phones have done away with 3.5mm headphone jacks. Instead, they require users to use wireless earphones to listen to their music or video content. Realising that this could lead to situations where the Apple AirPods are hard to track down, they introduced this feature which automatically locates them for the user to find.
  • A Vast Emoji Collection – For many online communicators, life would hardly be possible without emojis to get their message across. Sensing this, Apple has vastly expanded the iPhone’s emoji repertoire, allowing you to instantly communicate emotions like delight or confusion with a simple icon.
  • The TV App – Apple has started to focus on video streaming in a big way and iOS 10 formalised this with the introduction of the TV App. Basically an aggregator of Apple’s partner broadcaster, it’s a handy way to access TV and movies, offering clear visuals and plenty of suggestions for the viewer to explore.
  • Portrait Mode – For the first time, Apple’s iOS allowed iPhone 7 users to take portrait snaps, adding a whole new dimension for photography lovers.

That’s just a tiny sub-section of what iOS can do. It’s a gaming platform, a photography tool, a way to stream movies, sports, TV shows and YouTube, a messaging platform, a web browser, a navigation aid, a fitness tracker, a music player – basically everything a laptop can do, iOS devices are able to copy.

How Do iOS Updates Work?

iOS is constantly changing. Every year, there’s a major update, and throughout the year Apple releases tweaks to the main release. For example, while iOS 10 debuted in September 2016, by February 2017, we had already reached iOS 10.3, as Apple ironed out a few flaws and added extra features.

Major annual updates usually weigh in at over 1GB in size – so they require a hefty download, while minor updates can also be as large as 200MB. If you have a compatible phone, Apple will automatically notify you that an update has become available. Then you need to go to your phone’s settings, choose the “General” tab and then “Software updates” before pressing “Download”.

Updates can also be scheduled to download overnight, which can be handy if you rely on your smartphone for work during the day. They can also be processed by hooking up your device to a computer with iTunes installed, a handy option if Wi-Fi isn’t available for whatever reason.

Not every Apple user needs to upgrade their device to the latest version of iOS, although Apple personally recommends that you do so. There are very few drawbacks to updating. New versions of iOS tend to be more efficiently programmed, take up relatively less space on your disc, have extra features (and refined versions of older apps) and better security. The only possible reason not to update could be if you have a very old iPhone and are worried that it can’t cope with the more advanced software. But in cases like that, it’s surely time to search on HotUKDeals for an up-to-date smartphone with the latest version of iOS.

iOS: Hey Hi Hello

What Does it Mean to Jailbreak an iOS Device?

In the past, you used to hear a lot about jailbreaking iOS devices, but what does this mean? Basically, when Apple first introduced iOS, they tried to keep as much control over its internal code and functions as they possibly could. This means putting obstacles in place for people who wanted to customise their phone. In particular, it meant making it hard to decide how to arrange and run your apps, as well as the general appearance of the iOS front end.

Apple also wanted to ensure that iPhone users could only add apps that they had approved, which placed some software off limits (such as the web browser Firefox). In response, hackers have constantly sought to dismantle those protections and unleash the power of iPhones, this process is known as jailbreaking.

Most jailbreakers use specific apps like Pangu to carry out the operation. Written almost as soon as new iOS versions come out, apps like this target the protection surgically, removing the App Store and replacing it with a platform called Cydia – which opens up a whole new range of apps to download.

It sounds like a good idea at first. If you use applications like Firefox on your computer, why shouldn’t you be able to install them on your iPhone or iPad as well? However, there are some things to consider before you jailbreak your iPhone or purchase a jailbroken device.

Firstly, it’s worth remembering that by jailbreaking your phone, you will almost certainly void the device’s warranty, leading to problems if it develops a technical fault. There’s also the problem of synching iOS updates to jailbreaking. When you download a new iOS release on a jailbroken device, it won’t work until a new jailbreak becomes available for the update. This could be a matter of hours, but sometimes can take weeks to materialise.

Jailbreaking isn’t without technical risks either. On a basic level, you may find that the apps on Cydia are less reliable. More fundamentally, it could lead to your phone experiencing more crashes or less battery life.

Then there’s malware. Jailbroken phones are definitely more susceptible to malware infestations. It has been known for jailbreakers to inject malware back doors into their code in order to steal customer’s personal information. So be aware, use a malware checker and stay alert for any possible signs of infection.

However, despite those qualifications, millions of iPhone users prefer to use jailbroken devices due to the freedom it confers. It’s up to you to balance security and reliability with extra functionality.

Introducing the Various Types of iOS Device

Now we’ve talked a little about what iOS is, and whether you might want to jailbreak an iOS device, it could be handy to outline exactly what kind of iOS devices you’ll find at the HotUKDeals iOS listings:

  • iPhones – Apple’s flagship smartphone, the iPhone range has now reached its seventh incarnation. With a better camera than ever, up to 32GB of storage, an easy-grip surface, a formidable A10 Fusion chip, 3GB of RAM and two hours more battery life than the previous version, the iPhone 7 is one of the finest smartphones on the market.
  • iPods – iPods have come a long way from the slightly clunky music player that appeared in 2001. The iPod Touch is the most powerful and runs on iOS 10, offering most of the features of a conventional iPhone. You can stream videos, receive messages, browse the web and – of course – listen to your MP3 collection from this sleek and powerful pocket device.
  • iPads – Apple’s tablet devices, the iPad Pro and the iPad Air 2 are top of the range mini-computers. The Pro family is the more high-powered of the two, offering compatibility with the Apple Pencil and suiting any creative professionals. The iPad Air 2 is a sleek, fast, good-looking home tablet with great resolution and streaming capabilities.

Is iOS a Good Option for Gamers?

As smartphone gaming has begun to come into its own, Apple has recently started to market iOS as a serious gaming platform. Nowadays, smartphone games have matured well beyond simplistic (but addictive) titles like Angry Birds. The latest models of iPhone or iPad have the graphical processing power to handle complex shooters and sporting action.

For example, there are slick iPad racers like AG Drive, cut football titles like Pixel Cup Soccer 16, quirky sports games like Super Stickman Golf 3 and superb strategy challenges like the re-release of Rome: Total War.

And, on the iPhone, you can download excellent titles. There are RPGs like Rogue Life, retro shooters like Circuroid, sporting classics like FIFA 17 and, of course, the charms of Pokemon Go! The quality of iOS games has drastically improved of late, making almost all iOS devices tools for serious gamers.

If you do intend to make gaming the focus of your iOS usage, think about which device works best for you. If you love platformers or sports games, a smaller device like an iPhone 7 may be best. That way, you can access the whole screen with your fingers easily. However, if strategy games are your thing, the iPad’s larger screen will win out every time.

The iPad generally beats the iPhone for pure gaming enjoyment due to its more powerful processor, and the fact that you can combine its larger screen with Wi-Fi controllers, like the GameVice (which attaches to either side of the iPad) or the Horipad which resembles an Xbox joypad. Either of them make games like Call of Duty much more enjoyable.

iOS or Android – Which One’s Best for You?

Before you make an iOS purchase, you’ll need to ask yourself the fundamental question: are you an iOS or an Android person? Which one you choose could make a big difference to how much enjoyment you extract from your smartphone or tablet.

iOS is the gold standard when it comes to reliability and quality. When you use iOS, you can be confident that everything will function effectively and that updates will arrive on schedule, ironing out any bugs as they are identified.

You’ll also benefit from the way that Apple has configured iOS to synch up various Apple devices. If you own an iPod Touch, a MacBook, an iPad and an iPhone, iOS allows all of them to work together, sharing photos, videos and any other content with ease.

Created by Google, Android is the operating system used by most smartphones and has its own set of strengths. The most important of them is flexibility. With an Android phone, you can download whatever apps you like and customise your phone with ease. There’s no need to be pinned down by Apple’s limited selection and no need to jailbreak your phone. You are in total control.

Having an Android phone also doesn’t mean that iOS is completely off limits. Perhaps inevitably, enterprising coders have come up with what are called iOS launchers. These apps enable Android phone owners to experience an almost exact copy of iOS – with all of the user-friendly features that make iOS so special. You can still use your Android apps, but with the advantage of an iOS-style front-end – a true win-win situation.

In terms of everyday use, both Android and iOS are polished products that can be mastered fairly quickly. iOS may have the slight edge in terms of pick up and play usability, but the fact that millions of Brits rely on Android with no problems at all shows how easy it is to master.

iOS is the backbone that enables Apple’s iPhones, iPads and iPods to deliver such a high-quality, reliable range of services. Refined over more than a decade now, it is still improving, becoming more user-friendly, adapting to new processing capabilities and making Apple devices ever more powerful.

It all sounds great, but what is the best way to make an iOS purchase? The answer depends on what you intend to buy. However, one thing is certain: make the HotUKDeals iOS listings the first place you look.

If you are in the market for the latest iPhone or iPad models, you’ll find savings from Apple themselves, along with major UK electronics retailers like Currys and John Lewis, as well as online sellers like Amazon or eBay.

If you just want to add to your iOS collection by downloading apps or games, you’ll also find plenty of great savings at the Apple App Store, including a wide range of free downloads.

Then there are iOS accessories. You’ll find deals for wireless earphones, chargers, stands, cases and game controllers at a variety of merchants, including Argos, GAME and Amazon – allowing you to get the most out of your new Apple devices.

Anyone making an Apple purchase should also be aware of their distinctive marketing schedule. Every September, the California tech company updates its iOS code and tends to release new hardware. This means that last year’s models are often discounted in the un up to new product launches. If you need this year’s version, Black Friday comes a couple of months later in November, and it’s the perfect time to hunt for a bargain.

iOS and Apple devices are as good as it gets in terms of tablets, audio players and smartphones, and at HotUKDeals, you can get hold of all of them at the lowest possible prices.
