Our favorite iPhone 6s case

The style, thinness, feel, material, price, and ease of installation of Apple’s Silicone Case for iPhone 6s make it our favorite case for most people.

Apps for the holidays

The holiday season is upon us, which means we’ve got so much time, and so little to do. Wait, strike that…it’s the reverse.

There are gifts to order, flights to track, family recipes to manage, and memories to capture. We’re going to be relying heavily on a select handful of apps to get us through all the craziness, and we thought we’d share the list with our readers in case they might also find it helpful.

How to back up your Day One journal backups »

Like we’ve talked about over the past week or so, Day One is an incredibly powerful journaling tool that we enjoy using to log events and milestones in our lives, keep track of great cuisine and travels, and to introspect from time to time.

With all these important memories, thoughts, and photos in Day One, it’s important to ensure everything is backed up consistently. Luckily, Day One has a feature built in that let’s you do just this.

iPad Pro: New tricks for old dogs »

The iPad Pro is upon us, and there are (of course) many reviews to read about Apple’s newest iPad. But, Jason Snell (Six Colors) wrote a review from the angle of whether the new iPad Pro is better than a Mac, or simply different. For most tasks, the iPad Pro is more than suitable — it’s the specialized tasks and other minutia that make it difficult for some people to completely switch over.

On the other hand, Federico Viticci (MacStories) wrote two reviews recently — an exhaustive (and fantastic) review of the iPad Pro, as well as a review of the new Apple Pencil, Smart Keyboard, and Logitech CREATE Keyboard. If you’re interested at all in the iPad Pro, he has you covered.
