One of the problems of moving to a new iPhone is that the restore process brings everything across. As well as the important information, you also end up with a tonne of applications that you never use and just can't be bothered to weed out.

Wouldn't it be nice to start off with a fresh build of iOS and just the stock apps? You can do this of course (instead of restoring your iPhone) but you'll loose all your Activity, Health and Watch data.

In this tip video, I demonstrate how you can do a partial restore to a new or existing iPhone to remove all the detritus, yet keep all your Activity, Health and Watch data. A third-party utility is used to achieve this (do so at your own risk) and there is no guarantee that it will work with future releases of iOS. However, I used it on my iPhone X and it worked amazingly well! The developers have stated that it is supported on iOS 11.2 beta so it looks promising!

Decipher Activity Transfer is free, but there is a paid version that allows you to transfer additional components in addition to your Activity and Watch data.

Tip - iPhone X First Look

The new iPhone X is out and in this video, I take you through the unboxing and initial setup of the iPhone X.

After a just a few days of use, it feels like Apple have reinvented the iPhone. Face ID and the new gestures are a delight to use.

Face ID works flawlessly, although there are some areas where it can't replace Touch ID -- such as when leaving your iPhone on a desktop -- but in most instances, it's comparable or even better than Touch ID.

Using Face ID to authenticate within apps is fantastic, and even quicker than Touch ID in most cases. Add in the beautiful design and the gorgeous OLED screen, and I think Apple have a winner.

I've even learnt to embrace the notch as it's really a non-issue if case you're wondering!

The problem with a touch interface is that things are not always as intuitive as they should be. This tip delves into some of the hidden features of Mobile Safari on iPad.

iCloud Tabs are Mobile Safari tabs that are open across all your Apple devices. As long as you're logged in to the same iCloud account, all of your tabs from your Mac, iPad and iPhone appear on all of your devices - if you know where to look, that is!

I also take a look at "Private Browsing Mode" - it's certainly private when you're using it but don't forget to close your private tabs when finished! I demonstrate why that's important in this tip.

Continuing with our look at Apples latest OS for the iPhone and iPad, I also take a look at some of the new features of the dramatically enhanced watchOS 3.

Apple have significantly improved the Apple Watch with the release of watchOS 3 by increasing performance and removing the friction points that were so evident in the first releases of watchOS. Performance is drastically improved and the usability of the Apple Watch has been transformed - so much so that unless you really need GPS or waterproofing, upgrading to a series 2 Apple Watch is optional.

In this episode I explore some of the changes made to enhance the functionality of the Apple Watch and demonstrate some of the new constructs for accessing and navigating Apple Watch apps.

With the recent release of both iOS 10 and macOS Sierra, this episode covers some of the new and updated features of both operating systems, as well as some handy tips on migrating your iPhone and Apple Watch to new devices.
