My After thoughts are that the MacBook Pro its a great laptop for web browsing some video editing, but still these MacBook’s lack a strong GPU for people who also want to do some Gaming. Another issue that I should mention is that heat is a problem on such s small computer as a result you will hear the fans spin up quite high when the laptop is under load. I have added these details in the video so you can hear the back ground noise that they make.

Hi guys Matt from 123myit here and in this video I will go over Apples iOS 12, Is it faster? we will find out.
Ok Guys I heard that Apple latest iOS 12 update should improve device performance rather than slow it down. So I thought I would give this upgrade a shot and test it on my older iPhone 5s and see if I notice any better performance along with checking out the new iOS 12 features.
Before upgrading I ran the Benchmark and you can see the result below with iOS 11.2.
The results from iOS 11.2 were as follows:
Single core score, 1261
Multi cord score, 2157
To upgrade your iPhones iOS to 12 you can do this by going into Settings > Software update.
And you will read in the update information it states iOS 12 brings performance improvements and exciting new features.
Below is a picture of the Benchmark result after the upgrade to iOS 12. As you can see the Benchmark does confirm Apples claims to being faster.
The results from iOS 12 were as follows:
Single core score, 1308
Multi cord score, 2169
For me personally I think this is a welcomed change from Apple who was always the company seen to slow down the older devices to force customers to upgrade their iOS device. Right now this means you might get a little bit more use out of older devices which is fantastic news, however lets see what happens when Apple releases iOS 13. Will they delivery the same positive boost?
Other features that have been added to iOS 12:
Measurement screen ar kit leveler tool
New animal emojis koala and t-rex
Create your own emojis
Screen time how you are using iOS device
Limits on apps
Downtime app limits
Content and privacy restrictions
For more information on iOS 12 check out Apple’s website here.
In this video and article we take a look at the Apple iPad 6th Gen 2018 model which includes Apple pen support and upgraded CPU A10 fusion.
While the Apple pen doesn’t come with the iPad you can buy it for $99 USD. This is the first time the Apple Pencil has been included on the Apple iPad 6th Gen.
To pair the Apple pencil with the iPad its very easy. Simply remove the lid on the Apple Pencil and plug it into the lighting port on the bottom of the iPad. You should then see a message come up on the iPad telling you that the iPad is pairing with the Apple Pencil.
On the outside, the Apple iPad 6th Gen is exactly the same as the Apple iPad 5th Gen so nothing really new to see here. If you want to see our video on the old 5th gen iPad you can watch that here. Apple iPad Air 2 Unboxing & Review Or if you are looking for our Apple iPad Pro review check it out here. Apple iPad Pro Unboxing & Firstlook
However the Gold colour iPad has been replaced with a kind of pinkish gold now. Its still called gold but the new gold is a warmer colour now.
The Pencil is great but it doesn’t work so well as a general navigation tool. So to get the most out of the Pen you will need to find applications that support it. In the video I use the Apple notes application and it works quite well.
The battery is a 32.4 watt hour battery and according to Apple you should get around 10 hours of battery life.
Using the iPad is still the same as pervious versions. Swiping down brings you to the search menu. Swiping down from the top of the iPad will give you your notification’s menu. Swiping across will give you your widgets menu. Swipe up from the bottom will give you your recent apps menu along with the control centre.
The HP ProBook 430 G5 is HP’s low cost answer to enterprise or education laptops.
The main difference between the HP ProBook 430 G5 and the HP ProBook 430 G4 is the CPU upgrade and some cosmetic changes to the outside of the laptop.
For me I preferred the silver plastic on the HP ProBook 430 G4 and if you want to see the 123myIT review on that model check it out here.
The CPU is a 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i5-8250U Processor, up to 3.4 GHz with Intel®Turbo Boost Technology, 6 MB cache, 4 cores. This model also has a 256 GB M.2 SSD, this means that the computers overall performance will be much faster then the HP ProBook 430 G4. There is enough power in this laptop to do some video editing.
This laptop can play some games but not really recommended as it has an Intel® HD Graphics 620 built in graphics. If you are looking to play the latest games maybe try and get a Nvidia or AMD Graphics card in your laptop.
13.3″ diagonal HD anti-glare LED-backlit (1366 x 768)
8 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)
256 GB M.2 SSD
Prices for this model start $639USD and the model we got came with a free HP carry bag. So its a pretty good deal if you actually use the carry bag.
One of the negatives to this laptop is the trackpad. I find that I am constantly missing the area for a right click. This means that when I want to right click I have to press the trackpad several times to find the right spot. While this is not a massive deal it is kind of frustrating and should be something that HP take note of moving forward with new laptops.
I hope you liked this video and that it helped out.
This video & article will show you the OPPO R11s Unboxing & firstlook. If you are looking to buy a cell phone this is a great place to start. The OPPO R11s is the latest phone to come from the Chinese manufacturer OPPO. After going over the specs of the OPPO phone it seems to be about as good as the older Samsung Galaxy S7 edge. However the OPPO R11s doesn’t have the capability’s to do 3D like the Samsung can with the Samsung Gear. If you are not bothered with the 3D side of things and are after the latest model of phone then the OPPO is for you. However for $100 less you can get a Samsung Galaxy S7 with more function. So its hard to make a concrete decision here.
Will you notice the little if any difference in speed between the two devices. If you are using an iPhone or Samsung Phone and you are looking to switch to an OPPO make sure you take a look at the phone first. The OPPO has its own look and feel that are different from the other phones on the market and you might decided that you simply can’t handle the change.
Otherwise value for money the OPPO is a good phone if you don’t want to spend $1000 to $1400s on a phone.
If you can get past things like the mining USB charging port being backwards and having to press the side button to get into the phone then the OPPO R11s is definitely worth a look. Would I go as far as to reocmmened this phone to my friend or family over the Samsung or iPhone models? Maybe not. But at least there is new fresh competition with these devices around. Maybe Apple and other manufactures need to take their existing phone line ups to the next level and start innovating again.
Apple iPhone 7 Plus Product Red Unboxing & Firstlook
Hi guys and welcome to 123 my IT’s video on Apple’s latest iPhone release the Apple iPhone 7 Plus Product Red.
the first thing that you will notice about Apples new iPhone is that it’s red and you can get this model in both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. These phones come with 2 storage options 128 gigabyte and a 256 gigabyte capacity. Apple very conveniently have released this new colour on the very same week that Samsung Galaxy S8 is due to be announced.
This iPhone is called the Product Red iPhone because it’s part of the Product Red cause which means that a portion of the profit from the sale of this iPhone goes to the Product Red cause. And you can find out more about this on the link below. https://red.org/
As you take the iPhone out of the box the first thing that you will notice is the back of the phone is red however the front of the phone is white. This has been a big disappointment for myself and also a lot of other iPhone fans, because a lot of people would have liked to have seen a black front on the iPhone with a red back or a fully red iPhone both on the front and back.
This aside the quality of the iPhone and the deepness and sharpness of the red his outstanding. Is it worth upgrading to well I’m not convinced unless however if you are in the market for a new iPhone then this would be an ideal selection.
This is the matte finish very similar to the other iPhones, however this is not like the Jet Black model which had a glossy finish. So it should be fairly durable.
One nice thing that Apple has done here is they have match the antenna lines with the bezel of the phone so the antenna lines are almost hidden.
So what do you think guys do you think the iPhone read is worth the upgrade? leave your comments in the comments field below and thanks for watching.
