The iPhone X is not my Christmas present, honest. It is OK, but to be honest not that "special", and the hassle getting it set up was a nightmare.
First off I had to iCloud backup, which meant sorting extra storage. Then it restored, good, but every single damn app knows the login but not the password. So setting up banking on Lloyds, and Barclays, and Monzo. Then setting up Twitter and Facebook, FFS, why is this not simple?!?!
My authenticator app has lost the details so I have yet to sort that, and Barclays deny me "pin sentry" for "up to 10 days" for no fucking good reason.
The FaceID works seamlessly but to be honest so did fingerprints.
Then Signal app no longer loads - not available on app store, WTF? That is a pain as we use that internally for out of band support and ops. Arrrrrg!
OK, so iPhone X, and I pronounce it "ex" as I selected "English" not "Roman", not the Christmas present.
The Christmas present, if it happens, is the new Mac Pro. It looks awesome. I do video editing from time to time, and it looks perfect for that. I want! Looks very not cheap... Seriously, Apple, saying "available December" is not good in bloody "December"!
I am here, contemplating spending a shitload with you on my new toy, where is it?!?
/me goes back to a corner to cry.
P.S. In case it is not obvious, this is a little tongue in cheek and my being the average Apple consumer for a change. Though I do rather fancy the new Mac Pro :-)
