First observations about new iPhone 6S

(1) I like the Rose Gold. It is Pretty. However, my Speck case covers almost all of it. So.

(2) That is a large screen, and very, very high res. I now notice that the sunrise image I've been using from a Disney trip over a year ago is kinda blurry. I never noticed this before! Bummer. I will now need to get a new background picture. *the horror*!

(3) The tree peony on the lock screen also looks a little funky. I'm wondering if the original photos were fine, but what happened when they got snipped for the screen didn't translate well to the new phone?

(4) It is very light. It is weirdly, surprisingly, light.

I'm sure I'll have something much more substantive to say. Later.

In unrelated news, I had to reboot my Watch today. It was acting weird. Oh, I guess I should make sure my Watch is talking to the correct Phone. Hmmm.

ETA: Lock button is on the side.

ETAYA: Okay, I think I screwed up with the Watch, altho I am Really Very Okay with that. I didn't think to unpair it until after I'd already backed up the phone and restored the new phone from the backup. And when I unpaired it, I think that's when it stored all the data -- and of course that didn't get transferred over. Good news? Maybe I can get it calibrated correctly this time. We shall see.

In any event, the new phone is now paired with the Watch. Altho you'd never know it because the new phone thinks it needs to have the OS updated. Already.

I have also gone through the recycle process on the Apple store and BrightStar (which is kinda evil -- for the contact block, they require a title, and only offer Mr Mrs and Miss. SERIOUSLY IT IS 2015 YOU PATRIARCHS). They are offering me $90 if my phone is as described.

ETA still more: Activity App on the Watch appears to have some/all of today's activity. Hmmm.
