All the Best Apple Product Reviews

One: watchOS 4: The BirchTree Review

This is the best review of watchOS 4.

"Last year’swatchOS 3 was met with glowing reviews as it was a jam-packed release that drastically improved the Apple Watch experience. My own review was one of the most complete reviews out there, and even at over 6,000 words, it didn’t hit everything Apple added. watchOS 3 was a stellar release, and singlehandedly changed the conversation about the Apple Watch itself."

Two: A Week On The Wrist The Apple Watch Series 3 Edition

Hodinkee Apple Watch reviews provide a luxury watch expert perspective of the tech. 

"In the fall of 2014, I was one of the very few watch industry insiders to be invited to the launch of the first Apple Watch. The ensuing story (which you can read here), is still one of the most read stories I've ever written on HODINKEE, and it is in fact the most discussed here and elsewhere. Three years on, the Apple Watch remains one of the most controversial and hotly-debated objects not only in watches – where some view it as a simple non-issue, and still others view it as pure evil taking the form of 42mm of silicon and aluminum – but also in consumer technology because it has, by Apple's admittedly skewed matrices (which will happen when you're the largest company in the history of the world), not been the overwhelming success to which the firm is accustomed."

Three: This Is How Apple Prepares For iPhone Day


Four: iOS 11: The MacStories Review

Viticci's iOS 11 review is super long, super detailed and super good.

"For the second time in three years, the iPad isn’t following in the iPhone’s footsteps. With iOS 11, the iPad is going in its own direction – this time, with no cliffhanger."

Five: iPhone 8 Plus Camera Review: India

"I’m writing to you from a small hotel room in India having just experienced a magical adventure in western India orchestrated by friends at Ker & Downey. I’ve shot thousands of images and countless portraits with the iPhone 8 Plus and I’m excited to share what I’ve learned.

"While the iPhone 8 Plus looks essentially the same as the phone we’ve had since the 6 Plus, there are some new features in the 8 Plus which really impact creative pros across the board — most notably Portrait Lighting, along with a few other hidden gems."
