Mac OS X

Aside from new iPhones, theres more Apple news - the company has set release dates for iOS 11 - 19 September - and macOS High Sierra - 25 September. I can't say much about High Sierra - I don't have a Mac - but iOS 11 is an absolute must, especially for iPad users. I've been using it for a long time now on my 2017 iPad Pro 12.9", and I haven't looked back to my laptop since buying it and installing iOS 11 on it.

iOS 11 is a huge leap forward for the iPad, and it'll make your tablet feel like a new, and much more capable device.

It used to be that Apple hardware was top notch. The best you could get. And the software OS was just ok, not terrible.

Now the macOS is good. And the hardware is terrible, driven by the fashionista market.

I got an older MacBook Pro and upgraded the internal components. That worked pretty much perfectly for me. All I lost was a little processor power and Retina, but I paid less than half the price for the same RAM, and I have a 1TB and 240GB SSD internally, with the option to upgrade the 240GB when I get more cash.

I'm currently on 15" MBP Retina 2015 model, but I get tempted to upgrade to the latest one because of improved screen (I do some photography in my free time) and faster SSDs. And yet, I still am afraid to do that, since looking at user opinions, latest MBPs seem to be controversial at best.
