As I noted in my review of the Apple Watch Series 2, I'm a fan of the new watch. I see from other reviews posted this week that I'm not alone. For example, I agree with everything that California attorney David Sparks says in his review of the Apple Watch Series 2. Also, if you are trying to decide if it is worth spending the extra $300 for the stainless steel version of the Apple Watch over the aluminum version, Sparks explains that he used the aluminum version of the original watch, but this time decided that it was worth spending more money for the stainless steel version. That's my preference as well, for the reasons noted in my review. And now, the news of note from the past week:
- San Francisco attorney Kevin Underhill discusses an Apple patent application for a bag. Yes, a bag.
- New York attorney Nicole Black recommends some apps for lawyers that she recently discovered.
- If you have an iPhone 7 Plus — I just have the regular iPhone 7 — you are probably wondering when each of the two cameras is being used. Glenn Fleishman tackles this question in an article for Macworld.
- Reggie Ugwu of BuzzFeed News interviewed several Apple executives to discuss Apple Music.
- Software developer Alexei Baboulevitch wrote an interesting review of GoodNotes, my favorite app for taking handwritten notes using my Apple Pencil and my iPad Pro.
- Zac Hall of 9to5Mac reviews Lutron's Caséta in-wall dimmer, which is one of my favorite HomeKit devices. (My review from 2015 is here.) In fact, I like that product even more now than when reviewed it in 2015 because HomeKit works even better with iOS 10.
- I haven't yet had a chance to test the Series 2 Apple Watch in a swimming pool, but Eric Slivka is a serious swimmer and wrote about using the Apple Watch while swimming in an article for MacRumors.
- Ben Lovejoy of 9to5Mac talks about what he likes in watchOS 3.
- And finally, when I reviewed the Apple Watch Series 2 earlier this week, I included a link to a review of the watch by Serenity Caldwell for iMore. It really is a good review, so you should check it out. But in addition to the written review, she produced a really nice video showing off the new Apple Watch features. Definitely worth watching if you own an Apple Watch, are planning to buy an Apple Watch, or are just Apple Watch curious:
