This week: we’ve spent seven full days with iPhone 6s and we’re ready to report what we love and what we don’t. Plus: El Capitan just made your Mac a lot better! We’ll cover the cool tricks your Mac just learned. And stay tuned for our dive into the world of fake Apple Watch bands… how does $9 for an Apple Watch Sport band sound? How about $28 for a Leather Loop? Sure, the fakes are 1/5 the price of genuine Apple bands, but are they any good? We’ve been testing two fakes to find out, and the results might surprise you.
