Lots of dumbphone woes this week 📵

The iPad + dumbphone experiment continues


How was your week? Mine was… special, thanks to the iPad + dumbphone experiment. I’d like to thank you all for your support, and your thoughts, about this venture of mine.

This is what was published on switchtoipad.com this week.

📵1️⃣ The iPad + dumbphone experiment was the big one, a series of posts where I put my iPhone in a drawer to rely solely on my iPad, and a dumbphone. This is the first post, you should probably read them in chronological order.

📵2️⃣ The Dumbphone Experiment: Stumbling on iMessage tells the tale of my iMessage woes, just a day into the experiment.

👀 iPadOS 15 Beta Watch: Lovely widgets takes a brief look at the new, larger widgets in the upcoming iPadOS 15. I like them!

📵3️⃣ The Dumbphone Experiment: Enabling the Apple Watch brings the smartwatch to the mix.

Do consider subscribing to the Switch to iPad RSS feed, if you’re into RSS readers, or follow @switchtoipad on Twitter for automatic updates that way. Or you could just wait for these emails, of course.

That’s it for this week. Paying subscribers can look forward to the 59th issue of the Switch to iPad newsletter (I really need to differentiate these things, don’t I?) this Wednesday, as usual. The site will continue to get updates, free for all, and the dumbphone experiment continues, obviously.

Thanks for reading!
