I’ve challenged myself to do something that I never thought I would; I am going to use only Apple products for a month.
It’s about week two and I’m feeling pretty good about my choice. I’m running iOS 10 Developer Beta 1 on an iPhone 6s Plus (in rose gold!). I am loving it so far. I’m usually not a fan of big phones, but you get so much more with the Plus model of iPhones. You get better battery, screen resolution, and OIS.
Also, my daily computer is a MacBook Pro with mostly high-end specs. I recently added 128 more gigabytes to my built-in 128GB drive by using the TarDisk Pear. It expands your current memory by inserting a small SSD-like flash drive into your SD reader port. It’s flush with the body, and I forget it’s even there sometimes. If you want to check out these for your MacBook Pro or Air, click here. You won’t regret it!
I’m also about to invest in a new Apple TV. I sold my old 3rd Gen, and I’m planning on getting the newest one very soon. I hope they don’t come out with another one until 2017; this will make me regret my decision.
I also went all out and got the Apple Magic Mouse 2 and Magic Keyboard as well! The Magic Keyboard is okay, but needs more depth to the keys. I love the Magic Mouse. There are no complaints there! Very cool scrolling and clicking. It’s kind of different not having actual buttons to press, though.
I plan to keep this up, using the Apple ecosystem, for another month or so. I know the betas will get better, and eventually I’ll install MacOS Sierra on my MacBook Pro when it’s stable enough.
Side note: I do like both Android and Apple, so this is not me leaning wholly toward Apple forever. I do still have a Nexus 6P with Android N on it, as I’ve explained in this article. This is simply a test of my will to stay within an ecosystem that I don’t usually stay in for long. It will also probably make me appreciate being able to use both a bit more!
Leave your comments below as to what you use daily, and if there is anything I should add to my ecosystem of Apple products.
