What's your current phone, and how do you have it set up?

Following the success of the Apple iPhone 11, I decided in March 2020 to upgrade to the Apple 12 Pro Max. Running on Apple's iOS 14.5 (currently in beta stages as of writing this), it's smooth, fast, and just an amazing mobile operating system, overall. The device itself features a 6.7" display with minimal bezels and a jam-packed notch featuring a front facing camera, speaker, proximity sensor, and more. The Super Retina XDR display keeps blacks black, and the screen is vivid with bright colors and bright whites. The speakers are powerful and don't distort at maximum volume. Some more specs include Apple's A14 Bionic chip, Ceramic Shield glass, a stainless steel frame, IP68 water resistance, 5G, MagSafe, and so much more.

Moving on to the rear cameras, let's take a look at the ultra-wide, first. We have a 5-element lens with 13mm focal length, 120º field of fiew, ƒ/2.4 aperture, and lens correction. The wide-angle camera has a 7-element lense with 26mm focal length, 1.7 µm pixels, ƒ/1.6 aperture, 100% Focus Pixels, and Sensor-shift Optical Image Stabilization (OIS). The 6-element telephoto lens has 65mm focal length, ƒ/2.2 aperture, and OIS. Lidar, Dolby Vision recording, Smart HDR 3, incredible night mode, and ProRAW are all incredible features that are included, and all work with the front-facing TrueDepth camera.

My social apps have decreased a bit since the iPhone 11, my current ones being Discord, Guilded, Instagram, Snapchat, and Reddit. Games have also becoming more scarse on my phone, with Among Us, BitLife, Mini Metro, and Ninja Tobu being my current choices. Utility apps include Speedtest, my choice of two-factor authentication app, and LIFX, while Spotify, YouTube, Twitch.tv, Paramount+, and Disney+ are my current picks for entertainment.

All in all, my time with this new device has been awesome, and I'm definitely excited to put the camera through its paces. Vlogs will be coming to my YouTube channel again, and I'm hoping my iPhone will be the main source of recording for those.

My current accessories for my iPhone 12 Pro Max include a pair of AirPods Pro and Apple Watch SE.

What's your backup phone, and how do you have it set up?

With the upgrade to the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max, my iPhone 11 has gone into backup mode. I've deleted a ton of the default apps following a clean restore of the device. Current apps that are installed are my choice of two-factor authentication, in the event that I am unable to use my primary phone to log into websites and services.

What's your current tablet, and how do you have it set up?

I recently got myself the 2020 Apple iPad Pro in silver. Some specs include Apple's A12Z Bionic chip, 6GB of RAM, and an 11-inch Liquid Retina display. On May 30th, Apple will be releasing their new Magic Keyboard for the 2018 and 2020 iPad Pros, and I fully intend to pick one up.

As for the camera, the rear sports a 12MP Wide camera, a 10MP Ultra Wide camera, and a LIDAR sensor, while the front features a 7MP TrueDepth camera. All cameras are capable of 4K images, 4K60 videos, and 1080p240 slow-motion videos.

My iPad Pro is currently running a beta build of Apple's iPadOS 14.5, which is essentially just iOS 14.5 for iPads. Widgets, dark mode (first introduced in iPadOS 13), and trackpad support (first introduced in iPadOS 13.4), it runs smoothly and and I can be incredibly productive, especially when using my Apple Pencil 2nd Generation.

For the most part, I've installed nearly the same apps on my iPad Pro as with my iPhone 11. Social apps still include Facebook, Discord, Twitter, and Reddit. Utilities include Fast, LIFX, GeekBench, and Antutu. Media apps include Apple TV, Spotify, YouTube, YouTube Music, Disney+, Netflix, Xfinity Stream, Twitch, Lightroom, and Photoshop. My games of choice are Bitlife, Minecraft Earth, Mini Metro and Mini Motorways, and Plague Inc.

The last iPad that I owned was the iPad 3, and I was heart-broken when I had to sell it to afford other, more important things during a rough time in my life. So far, with this new iPad Pro, I am incredibly glad that I've picked a good time to rejoin the iPad family.
