We’ve just released a new issue of our sister app, Swipe – the iPhone Magazine.

We know it’s only just December, but when it comes to making plans for the festive period it’s worth getting a little headstart. That’s why we’ve got a bumper edition of Christmassy goodness for you this issue.

Our big Reviews roundup is a whole advent calendar’s worth of goodies. We’ve come up with a whopping 24 apps and games to help things run smoothly this year, from planning the dinner to entertaining the kids and much more. Beyond the roundup, we’re looking at some pretty interesting apps this week, from the all-new Afterlight 2 to an app that uses augmented reality to help you get better at drawing.

The lead story in the Features section will help you plan for the holidays, too: we know Christmas shopping can be stressful, so we’ve scoured the internet to find the ten best gifts for iPhone users. And for those readers who don’t need our festive advice, we’ve taken a look at the security worries surrounding Face ID in a secondary feature.

Of course, as usual, there’s plenty of News to sink your teeth into, as well as three great pieces of advice over in the How-To section. But I’m not going to spoil it for you here – you’ll have to read on to find out what else we’ve been looking at this issue!
