If you want to do anything with your smartphone beyond the basics, there's no reason not to go Android. So, as someone who has not only owned some form of hand-built computer since age 15, but worked at a PC enthusiast magazine for five years — including being editor of the darn thing — why on Earth am I using an iPhone 5s and before that, an iPhone 4? It's complicated... but also not.

Apple announced a slick little new iPhone model yesterday, the iPhone SE. It looks a heck of a lot like an iPhone 5 from the pictures we've seen but it's hard to be certain of the exact dimensions from just a picture. iMore has confirmed that it is indeed the same shape, which means it will fit inside iPhone 5 cases.
So you've got a shiny new iPhone 5, but you're already sick of the default "water ripple" wallpaper and those old iPhone 4 wallpapers are too small. The web may not be teeming with iPhone 5-sized wallpapers yet, but here's where you can find one that suits your tastes -- and how to crop one for yourself.
Telstra 4G provides typical 4G download speeds of 2Mbps to 40Mbps† across an area that is more than double any other Australian 4G network. Telstra 4G devices, like the iPhone 5, also seamlessly operate across Telstra’s entire coverage footprint. So if you happen to go outside a 4G coverage area, you’ll automatically switch to leading 3G speeds.
If you've picked up a pair of Apple's new EarPods, you've probably read that Apple designed them to fit all types of ears. That hasn't stopped many reviewers from pointing out they're a little loose and prone to falling out. The fix? A little sugru, that moldable silicone we love so much.
Apple released iOS 6 this week, bringing a handful of new features to iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches. While they defined many of the flagship features, several were left unsaid. These are our 10 favourite secret features in iOS 6.
One of the minor annoyances of the iPhone 5 is that is uses the nano SIM format, and replacement SIMs are in short supply if you're not buying on contract through a major telco. Amaysim has confirmed it won't have its own branded nano SIMs until November, but the MVNO is offering to hand-cut replacement nano SIMs for any existing customers who have purchased an iPhone 5 outright.
Apple's iPhone 5 officially goes on sale today at 8am. If you haven't already ordered one and you aren't standing in a queue, your chances of getting hold of one are fairly slim. But we've rounded all the key information you need about the new phone, which plans are on offer and what features iOS 6 offers.
Apple is happily boasting that more than two million iPhones were pre-ordered in the first 24 hours. The practical upshot of this is that most of its initial production run has already sold. If you're determined to have one as soon as it gets released but you haven't already placed an order, you'll more than likely have to queue up at 8am this Friday at the retailer of your choice.
The iPhone 5 goes on sale this Friday, and for many people buying on contract to avoid pay $800+ up front will be the most popular choice. But which carrier and which contract should you choose? Our Planhacker table lists every iPhone 5 offer in Australia so you can decide for yourself.
Well, that didn't last long. We pointed out last week that you could order the iPhone 5 from Kogan for $100 less than Apple's list price, but it looks like that batch has sold out and the price has gone up slightly for new orders.
If you want to pre-order an iPhone 5, you can do so directly through Apple, through a carrier such as Optus, Telstra, Vodafone or Virgin Mobile, or through a third party seller such as Kogan. You can also now do so through eBay sellers with access to Apple's supply chain, but the site has set some strict rules around the process.
