Firstly, I’d just like to say:
Not that it really has any impact on any of you, but I just thought I’d let you know. I’ve just been busy with exams, moving house, planning vacations (you know, the important stuff…), and yes, I know it’s not really an excuse, but I’m gonna use it as one anyway.
So, what I wanted to discuss today was the experience that people are having with their iPhone 5s so far. Please leave comments at the end of this, talking about how you’ve found your new iDevice to handle through it’s initial release period. I’m not just talking about iOS 6 here, I’m talking about the hardware, too, such as the screen resolution, and the ‘noticeable’ speed improvements on the processor.

If you’re using an iPhone in New Zealand, you probably have a voice plan that you pay your carrier a pretty sum for every month.

If you’ve not looked into this, read on and your next phone call might well be to your carrier to have your voice plan cancelled. …Read More
So we’ve just seen Sam’s images from day 2 of the NZ iDev conference and he has kindly put together a post about his two days at the conference. As we couldn’t be there at day 2 (and to get the perspective from someone else of day 1) we really appreciate him putting this together.

FaceTime, FaceTime, FaceTime! Unless you have just moved to Earth from outer space you will know that this is Apple’s new video calling service. Compatible FaceTime devices thus far are the iPhone 4, the iPod touch 4th Gen and (as of last week) any Mac with a camera running Snow Leopard.
Aside from the odd launch hiccup and Mac security bug which has now been fixed, we at iPhonewzealand could not be more impressed with FaceTime. The only downside is talking to people with FaceTime uses data, but how much does it use? and what is a call going to cost you to make or receive? Carry on reading to find out.…Read More
