If you’re a patron of our sister app, Swipe – the iPhone Magazine, you may have noticed some technical troubles over the weekend. Thankfully that’s all fixed now just in time for this bumper Christmas edition of the mag! Here’s the blurb.

We know Christmas Day is still more than two weeks away, but with the holidays firmly in our sights we’ve deemed it time to pack all our festive content into a bumper issue. That means you’ve got plenty of time to take our advice on board before it’s too late!

That advice is spread across two full features, an extra-long apps roundup, and even a how-to piece refreshed from last year’s Christmas extravaganza.

Dig on into this issue and you’ll find all kinds of ways to share your festive photos, including how to create your own greetings cards, as well as ideas for the best tech gifts to get the iPhone or iPad owner in your life.

Our roundup covers every app you could conceivably need to download in the build-up, including ways to keep track of presents, tips for making the perfect Christmas dinner, and ways to keep the whole family amused on Christmas Day.

Of course, we’ve got our usual set of non-festive reviews and how-tos on board as well for those of you who aren’t interested in Christmas.

Our next issue, and the final one of the year, will look back on the very best apps, games, and gadgets of 2018.
