Hi! Thanks for reading. This post looks better in our award-winning app, Tips & Tricks for iPhone.


Welcome back to Swipe magazine!

As the summer draws to a close and the school season beckons, we’ve got productivity on the mind.

It’s time to get back into the swing of working hard, and apps can certainly play a part in helping you get things done. That’s why our big reviews roundup this week looks at the very best task managers for iPhone and iPad.

If working isn’t your thing, how about gaming? Head to Features and you can read our thoughts on Apple’s decision to add “classics” to its Arcade lineup.

We’ve also penned a wishlist of things we’d like to see from the next edition of Apple Watch, plus a guide to the best tablet computer to buy your kids. No surprises that iPad is our top pick, but if you don’t want to spend that much money there are some shockingly good alternatives out there for a lot less.

Over in How-To we’re continuing our extended look at iOS 15, with several articles detailing how various aspects of Apple’s upcoming software will change – and how to use the new features.

Of course, all that comes after an opening News chapter looking at iPhone 13 rumors, App Store changes, and Apple’s controversial child protection proposals.

That’s it from me for now. See you in September as Apple’s Fall event looms ever closer!
