What's on Richard's iPhone 6 right now!

Following on from other members of the iMore team, it's my turn again to talk about what I'm using on my new iPhone 6. Moving up from the 5s I decided to start afresh, no iCloud restores, just setting up as a new phone and downloading apps as and when I decided that I needed them. My 5s had become unwieldy. Far too many apps installed that I just wasn't using. So I used the upgrade to trim the fat and what's on there now is pretty much what I'm actually, regularly using.

Read on and I'll take you through it.

But what about the iPhone 6? Can the iPad actually stand on its own two feet where photography is concerned this time around? Let's find out!

Goal Zero Switch 10 and Torch 250 review - solar charging for your iPhone and iPad

I had used some of Goal Zero's solar chargers on Android devices in the past, and wanted to have a go with their latest offerings before the sun was blotted out for 8 months with Canadian snow and woefully shorter days.

What's on Derek's iPhone 6 right now!

Hi, my name is Derek, I'm an iPhone 6 user. I've owned an iPhone 6 for a little over a month now. I use it a lot, more than I had previous iPhones. But nothings really changed since I started using the the iPhone 6. I'm still meticulous about how I organize things on the home screen… even with Spotlight search and Siri to launch things, I still want everything in its place. It is my iPhone, after all, I should have it set up the way I want it. But hey, with the 6 I can put more apps on the home screen, so there's that.

Hands on with Apple Pay

Apple Pay is a strange sort of wonderful magic—the kind of tech that makes you feel like you're living in the future. Our Android brethren have had NFC-enabled solutions for years in the form of Google Wallet, but compatible terminals were far and few between.

That's changed: Apple Pay, at launch, is supported in over 220,000 stores and by 34 brands, with more launching by the end of the year. And it's not just random boutique shops and Apple Stores, either—there are big-name retailers and grocery stores on the master launch list.

Earlier today, I hit up the Apple Store, Walgreens, and Whole Foods for a quick tour of the Apple Pay experience. The result? A wholly enjoyable, quick-checkout process that left me wishing for more.
