Weight and Stuff Report – 25 September 2015

Another upward thingy today, mutter.

But hey, today was NPD! That’s New Phone Day, of course. I’d arranged for my new iPhone 6S[1] to be delivered to work, and it arrived while I was in the sarnie shop[2]. I got the SIM swapped over and logged in with my Apple IDs[3]. First impressions are good – the bigger screen is sharper than a very sharp thing, and the camera shows promise. The 3D touch stuff (pressing with varying levels of pressure does different things) is cool, and it’ll be interesting to see what developers make of it as apps are updated and created to take advantage of it.

Once I got it home and on WiFi, it quickly installed the apps I wanted[4] and started talking to my music library and photos.

Next up was unpairing the Apple Watch that I haven’t mentioned from the 5S and pairing it with the 6S – and that’s why the step count is approximate, as the data goes away when you do that. That’s something that needs to improve in future versions of Watch OS and iOS…

And then I wiped the 5S and started preparing it for sale….

Another unrelated photo. This is Mallard’s nameplate. Obviously

[4] This is why I don’t take the easy option of restoring from a backup – it lets me leave out apps I’ve installed, used once and forgotten about, if you’d like the details
