Next time I see a fight or altercation on a flight, I'll whip out my iPhone and start taking photos, as the GPS will still be on even if the iPhone is in flight mode and the photos taken will contain geo-location information.

Re: No Margin

“We are forced to pay full retail prices for Apple here in the UK. I don't see any discounter offering more than a few quid off the retail price”

Last years model iPhones and iPads are discounted by UK shops - got my 128GB iPhone 6S for £529 from CPW when the 7 was announced; new 2017 iPad WiFi + cellular 128GB bought from Argos eBay store for £299 just before Christmas last year, that’s a big discount on the £500+ retail price of the 2018 model which offers nothing more than a slightly faster CPU and Apple Pencil support.
