    So a year with my Apple Air Pods and have to say they are without doubt one of the best products Apple have ever made!

    That really is shit although I wonder how many are affected. I’ve seen a few recently and non had any issues...

    Have to agree here. I wear them everywhere. I wear them to work, to bed, for lengthy phone calls. The years of wires and entanglement are over!

    My pockets are now, wallet, phone, keys, travelcard, AirPods. Standard.

    (eta and crucially, they aren’t those horrid rubbery type earbuds which block out all external sounds too)

    Yeah they fit so well, the little pod case is just brilliant. Instant connection, works seamlessly on all my other Apple products. Very happy with them.

    Are they comfy? I've always found the headphones that come with iphones won't stay in my ears, so assumed the airpods would be the same.

    I find them fine but evidently they don’t fit for many so definitely try before you buy as they’re very similar to the wired ones.

    Very comfy, and stay very well in place. Love little things like auto pausing if you remove one and being able to configure the double taps on them to do different things.

    Help appreciated if anyone can advise. My Mum was gifting her old iPad to my niece for Xmas and had created an iTunes account for her and uploaded some money from an iTunes voucher. Turns out nieces mother has bought her an android tablet.
    So my daughter has the iPad now and has her own sign in and iTunes account already.
    The £25 is on the previous account, from what I can see I can’t gift that money to my daughters account or even gift apps. Apple seems to have it sewn up even using family and friends wouldn’t work as my daughter would need to be the account manager so any apps bought could only be paid from her account and not the other (ghost) account.
    Can anyone think of or does anyone know a solution to this?

    Didn’t understand about the android bit. But gifting apps is done as linked Send App Store & iTunes Gifts via email

    Thanks for the reply however you can’t gift apps or a gift card using funds that have been downloaded from a gift card. We have an account that no one is using (or will use) with the £25 on it.

    Its possible to buy an app then switch back to the original id. It just asks for the password to update it.

    Oh that’s an idea I will try that... thanks ... would this work even if it’s downloaded on one iTunes account and then opened on another. The other option we thought was using it in the Mac and just having a separate log in for the specific game/games.

    I think so. We download work apps on a word id and people download apps on a personal id. I’d use it for as few apps as posible to avoid inconvenice and preferably games etc that will be played and then discarded when done.

    Article is all over the place. Says that he used the money from the op in 2011 to buy an iPhone 7 (which came out in 2016), then says he bought an iPhone 4.
    He'll be alright for an upgrade then....

    If the black market price is correct, he can buy 6 more kidneys too.....

    Has anyone tried the AirPods Live Listen feature yet? Nifty little function if you're in any way hard of hearing or just want to pretend you're a secret agent.

    That’s very cool, can see that being useful for some people.

    I tried it the other day. I can see the potential use, but I only then realised it turns the phone into the mic, not the airpods. I thought they'd be creating their own little hearing aid kind of thing. So, it's more useful for spying than for improving hearing.

    Despite from this obviously massive screw up, Facetime Audio is still my go to app for lengthy calls with my family. Not only is it free but the call quality is superb as long as you have sufficient wifi on either side. Regular cellular calls sound like something from the last century by comparison.

    They will get flack, but fair play, not wanting to release something that doesn't do the job.
