There’s no denying it—winter has arrived! While the cold season is my least favorite as far as the weather goes, as an Apple fan, it is unequivocally the most exciting time of year. Between getting your hands on Apple’s latest products and splurging on cool gadgets over the holidays, you can coast through chillier days with devices that help us live our best lives. Load Up on New Tech The verdict is in; Face ID and edge-to-edge displays are here to stay! Apple has released the new iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR with not only the same bezel-free form factor as last year’s X, but also faster facial recognition and a better camera, powered by the supercharged A12 Bionic chip (see page 12). But if you, like most of the iPhone…

stuff the iphone life team is loving

Donna Cleveland, Editor in Chief Audio-Technica Fully Automatic Wireless Stereo Turntable ($99-$149) There’s nothing quite like sipping a glass of cabernet and listening to records on a chilly night. That’s why I’ve been eyeing this Bluetooth-capable turntable from Audio-Technica as an early birthday present to myself. I’m looking forward to the warm sound of vinyl and the fun of collecting records, and also to the convenience of wirelessly connecting up to eight pairs of speakers to the record player at a time. Tamlin Day, Web Writer & Ad Trafficking Specialist Marvel’s Spider-Man on PS4 ($59.99-$79.99) I recently downloaded Marvel’s Spider-Man on my Sony Playstation 4, and I am having so much fun!

How do I remove some of the videos from my iPhone to free up space? I don’t want to delete them anywhere else. Sincerely, Need Storage Dear Storage, Start by going to Settings > Photos and selecting Optimize iPhone Storage. The original high-resolution versions of your videos and photos will be preserved in iCloud, while smaller, low-resolution versions will be stored on your iPhone.

making sense of apple’s new iphones

When Apple released the original iPhone back in 2007, you had three models to choose from: 4 GB, 8 GB, or 16 GB. Those were simpler times. There was only one color (black), and it was sold on one carrier (AT&T). While there was no App Store, Siri, or iCloud, there were also very few decisions you had to navigate. Fast forward to this September when Apple announced its new product lineup at the Steve Jobs theater, and the tech giant announced three new iPhones—the iPhone XS, the iPhone XS Max, and the iPhone XR. Each phone has a unique set of tradeoffs to analyze, not to mention the fact that Apple still sells the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 7. If you count all the generations, sizes, storage options,…
