Welcome to #259 – a note from the editor

  • by

Hey there Swipe readers,

Our previous issue was jam-packed with all the details from Apple’s big September event, but in the time since, most of those shiny new devices have actually been released.

If you managed to pick up an iPhone 14, or just want some inspiration for your Home Screen, head to the Reviews section for our view on the 14 best apps to install on a new device.

On reflection, we think the Dynamic Island introduced with iPhone 14 Pro is the most interesting addition of the year. It’s vintage Apple and it came completely out of the blue. As such, we’ve dedicated two articles to it this issue: one in Features, looking at why Dynamic Island represents the best of Apple design; and one in How-To, going hands-on with a device to explain exactly how it works in practice.

Beyond that, we’ve got our usual smattering of News, app recommendations, and tutorials – including a beginner’s guide to AI art that was particularly fun to write and research. Enjoy!
