The new iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro are here. Take a look at a collection of different reviews below. Generally the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro’s are iterative improvements over their predecessors. If you are coming from an older iPhone without FaceID they will be major upgrades in design, cameras, etc… But if you have an iPhone X or newer you will probably won’t have a very clear reason to upgrade unless you find one of the new features irresistible. The new 3 lens camera on the iPhone Pro could be that feature! But the longer battery life or the improved impact and water resistance might be enough to warrant an upgrade. The reviews below should give you a good idea of weather or not now is the time for you to upgrade.

When traveling with my MacBook Pro I always put it in a cushioned sleeve. This makes it easy to place into another bag or carry under my arm. These sleeves provide protection and extra pockets for chargers or cords.

USB-C Adapters on Amazon. A must have for new MacBook & MacBook Pros that only have USB-C ports. Small and cheap!
