It’s been a quiet week for social networks launching new features or product updates. I guess that’s to be expected given Mr Trump and Mr Biden’s race is keeping the major social platforms busy with fake news, misinformation, and other moderation challenges… But fear not, there’s still plenty of nerdy stuff to talk about from the past week.

It’s iPhone upgrade day today for me. Once I hit send on this email, I’m going to try and find out if I can get my iPhone 12 Pro Max on Apple’s iPhone Upgrade Programme, but I fear Covid-19 has killed any chances of getting it on launch day here in the UK due to lockdown. That may be no bad thing as I’m undecided on whether to go iPhone 12 or 12 Pro Max. What do you suggest? Let me know
. I trust your judgement.
