Welcome to #260 – a note from the editor

Welcome to issue #260 of Swipe!

It’s a full month since Apple unveiled its yearly iPhone and Apple Watch revisions, and we’ve had time to get to grips with both. Head to the Features section for a hands-on review of the biggest, most expensive iPhone as well as a look at the pros and cons of the biggest, most expensive Apple Watch. For some people, these will prove to be the best devices ever, but we’re not sure the upgrade is worth it for everyone.

Next, head to the Reviews section for our cover story all about app blocking. For those struggling to stay productive when there are so many distractions available on iPhone, putting some content and app blockers into place might be just what you need to keep yourself on track. We’ve covered five different ways you can do so.

Beyond that, as usual we’ve got all the latest from Apple in the News section, and some really interesting tutorials over in the How-To section. We found the new Lockdown Mode a particularly interesting one to research for this issue.

Enjoy the issue, and we hope to see you again next time!
