welcome

Imagine being an Apple employee and handing in a September holiday request. “Hey, I know you’re dropping three new headline-grabbing iPhones, a seriously gorgeous smartwatch and the release dates for four new operating systems… but I thought I’d rediscover myself at a Machu Picchu yoga retreat”. It’s not going to fly.Stuff HQ was abuzz on launch night. At least I think it was – I was on my way to an Arctic Monkeys gig. Sorry guys. Thing is, when Alex Turner took to the stage I still thought he might say something about it, such is the fuss an Apple Event still causes. But where Turner failed, we’ve excelled, pulling together some exceptional coverage on everything announced at Apple Park, with a wealth of knowledge, expert opinion and valuable insight…

our month

I WADED WITH DIGITAL FISHIt was just a normal Tuesday, except I was barefoot, roaming around in a dark magical space of infinite colourful lights and music. Next, I was wading through milky waters as projections of koi carp swam around my knees. All this was down to the creators and technologists behind teamLAB and its digital art show in Tokyo. It seems being trapped between a ’90s TV gunge-fest and a thought-provoking digital art exhibition is the only thing that can distract me from my phone.Natalya Paul, Online EditorI SHARED MY GAMING INCOMPETENCE IN GLORIOUS 4KA few years ago, I loved playing video games and sharing clips on YouTube; but as happens to all of us eventually, life got in the way.

It pioneered the much-imitated notch, was the first iPhone with an edge-to-edge OLED display, and was the first to ditch the home button. So 2018 was always going to be a quieter year for Apple… but once you’ve finished frowning at the names of its new flagships, you’ll find a lot to love.First, the XS (pronounced, ‘ten ess’, Apple insists, though nobody’s listening), which looks like last year’s model but packs the new A12 Bionic chip – which enhances your photos, gaming and AR…

DJI Mavic 2 Pro£1299 / dji.comA go-anywhere drone with a no-compromise camera? That’s the idea behind DJI’s new Mavic 2 Pro, a folding quadcopter with formidable aerial video skills…• One-inch punchThe Mavic 2 Pro’s big selling point is its Hasselblad-branded camera. The Swedish firm (part-owned by DJI) built the cameras NASA took to the moon, but this is its first drone-mounted snapper – and it’s a doozy. A huge 1in 20MP sensor and adjustable aperture mean great performance in any lighting conditions, with video options including 4K 10-bit HDR and 120fps slow motion. All that dynamic range should give your images of bald-headed dog-walkers some striking colour depth and punchy contrast.• Eye will followDJI has improved its already eerily accurate ActiveTrack system for the Mavic 2 Pro, so you can…
