    @Fake_Blood double tap the home screen button then side swipe the app window to close it.

    I think the app switching is significantly better than before. Donít think about the hold, it recognises it a lot faster than you think. Stop for the slowest of moments and you are there. Making it quicker than before.
    I donít mind the switching, itís the way they close now.

    Face ID kept failing on me this morning, went through a 20 minute period of a 90% failure rate when I was looking straight at it, and has been fine since. Odd.

    I like that they've added a step to closing apps. Pointless exercise for anything but misbehaving apps. Sure, if your battery is draining suspiciously, investigate and find the naughty app, but the constant closing of apps is a complete waste of time and arguably uses more battery overall as it has to reload everything.

    I see people on the train use app/close app/put phone in pocket/pull out phone/open app, rinse repeat. Idiotic.

    I mean when the home button isn't visible when the app crashes.

    My X arrived earlier today. Iím liking all this screen. Face ID mostly seems to work but definitely not as reliable as Touch ID, seems to only work if Iím facing it head on. Also none of my banking apps support it, which annoying.
    If they supported Touch ID they should support Face ID. Unless they've been lazy and haven't bothered supporting the X yet.

    Like Google Ė†Inbox /still/ hasn't been updated for the new screen dimensions.

    Halifax and Barclays havenít had X updates, they supported Touch ID but donít with Face ID.

    Though the Amex app supports Face ID but hasnít had an X screen dimensions update. Odd.

    @Zomoniac

    Ah luck of the draw. Am sure itís coming, I use HSBC and NatWest, both use Face ID. In fact NatWest was day 1 which I was shocked by.

    Agree on the camera Iím getting some ace shots out of this of my little munchkins.

    Anyone fancy an iMac just short of 5 grand, with specs that aren't exactly groundbreaking? Or you could plump for the 12 grand option.

    And don't forget forget that you can't upgrade anything. Not even the memory.

    And I thought my Mac Pro was expensive. It's insane, and not even that sexy; it looks just like a regular iMac.

    I thought you could, but only through Apple so as not to void the warranty and even then the cost for upgraded components would be over double the normal price.

    You're not meant to buy it unless you literally don't give a fuck about money.

    It's a rushed stop gap solution intended to quiet the rising complaints from people who use apples products professionally until the promised real Mac PRO is released next year.

    That said... They might just walk away from desktop altogether.

    Yeah, I know. There's a really annoying iPad Pro commercial doing the rounds that ends with an older woman asking a little girl what's she doing on the computer to which the girl replies "what's a computer?"

    Eurgh!

    Ha, my Mrs went fucking mental when she saw that ad. And she loves Apple stuff - but found it extremely cringey.

    Expansion capability, or lack thereof, aside, seem to remember reading a build-your-own equivalent to the base iMac Pro was round about the same price, maybe 3 or 4 hundred cheaper.

    A far better machine geared towards gaming could be done far cheaper, but that entirely misses the point of the iMac Pro.

    Not that I think the iMac Pro is a good idea in the first place incidentally.

    True, it's more for designers and creative types but what is in that setup is not worth 5k.

    Those comparisons are from earlier this spring. I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of those components are cheaper by now or have been outdated.

    What really impresses me is how the iMac Pro keeps the core mistake of the Mac pro by not being upgradeable. Will it work with external graphics cards?

    Surely that's by design.

    I wouldnít be comfortable having an all-in-one under heavy load 24 hours a day, surely the point of it?

    Not that Iím in any way shape or form the target audience. If I wasnít heavily into PC gaming, a 5 year old i5 with 8gb ram and an onboard gpu would probably suffice for all my computing needs, ha.

    In which case just get a Surface Studio.

    I donít understand this new world in which MS are the leading hardware innovators, but it seems to be the case.
