It has become what Microsoft was. The phones are not as good as the competition the computers are offering nothing special and you are ripped off at every stage. I stilll have my mac my iPhone Apple TV and ipad BUT I also have a fire stick, fire tablet and am weaning myself off. One HUGE thing for me is the last 10 years I have built calendars and photo books each Christmas for far flung relatives. Always expensive but good quality and simple to create and buy from iPhoto. Now you have to have an app and the thing is twice the price. Forget it I’m off to bonusprint at half the old price. ��

But on the computing side they've lost the plot. The keyboards on the recent laptops are just awful. From the best in the business to the worst. But hey, it's 0.2m thinner.

Too much power to Jony Ive in my opinion.
I like the new MBP (2016) keyboard. Better than the MacBook Air (2011) I used to have.

Touch Bar is just pointless, looks nice but never ever use it!

And yes, using Mojave. Seems a bit more sprightly to me. Like the dynamic desktop and stacks on the desktop other than that haven't really noticed any difference.

Was getting bored of the iPhone and coveted my mates S9. Got an X in the US used for 480, at that price its very nice and the screen and FaceID I like a lot. Took about two days to get used to no button but love it now.

Apple TV I don't bother with, have a new iPad (with Pencil) and like that.

MacBook Pro is good, wouldn't swap for any other PC today.

Agree there is no real innovation (and hasn't been for the last few years) but if you shop around (and are lucky enough to go to the US regularly) then at that price I can't see any point in swapping out the ecosystem yet.

Rumours are there will be a new Mac mini October 30th. Now that I am very tempted in (for a home hub).

Software purchase and multiple App Store accounts (computers, not mobile devices)

A query about App store and logins.

I want to buy Logic Pro for my son to use on my 'family' iMac.

If he subsequently buys a laptop for himself, will we be able to install/update etc on there using my Apple account.

Or is it possible to download the original from his own Apple account on the iMac for which I'm the main account holder?

I can't get a clear picture from what's written in discussion forums whether you can just login to different Apple accounts on the App store without it getting fixed to the computer.

Away, I just went and had a look and Logic Pro X supports family sharing so providing you and he use a linked account through family sharing then up to six family members can share the app - note it doesn't include in-app purchases.

Family sharing really is pretty cracking to be honest, I use it with all my kids and we share all apps across IOS and MacOS. All purchases are to the same credit card so you have to handle the paybacks etc but it really is great.

Thanks - I didn't think of that route.

If you switch on family sharing, can the others still purchase on their own account (I really don't want to be involved in all their iOS stuff) and do they still have their independent login to update their existing purchases?

My kids are both over 18 and have both been using iPhones for the last couple of years.

No once accounts are linked all the purchases are onto the main cardholders accounts, ie. probably you. The accounts themselves tho are still completely individual and nothing changes on them. You share everything, so if you buy a storage plan for IOS then they all get to use it. This is very handy as I get the 200Gb one and use it for photos and all kids backup to it too.

My kids that work but pay me back if they use it to purchase anything. Everyone can use everyones else purchases. All data is stored in your own private sections of the cloud so from a functioning point of view everything works as to day just share everything. If they both use Apple Music for example you can get a family plan (15/mnth) and all of you can share that.

It really is simple to use and setup and removes of the pain in arse that used to come about with sharing accounts or logging on to each others machines.
