Maybe easier to get some kind of desktop app on a laptop then plug in to TV via HDMI?

Would the Nike running app and my apple music work on an iPhone with no sim in? My X is too big to run with so thinking of just using my old 6…

No because Sky block it, ditto for HDMI connection.

As long as you download the music via wifi then it should work.
Just turned off data and wifi and Nike app still works, might be slightly less accurate though.

Why not have Sky go on your PC?
Or have you reached device limit?

Another choice is to buy a decent little Pico projector and you can watch on a nice white wall or buy a screen for peanuts on amazon.

I think some phone contracts include Sky Sports but only on your phone, so you can't install it on your pc.

got an iPhone XR (128GB) brought back for me from the States but saddened to find the screen just a bit too big to hold for comfort for my arthritic hands.

the Mrs can easy take it, but has no need for it with an iPhone X of her own. but if I can cover somewhere near the price I paid (800 USD = 680 GBP approx) then I'd be tempted to sell (not listed in Classifieds as undecided on sale and on exact price).

Been out of the box less than 24 hours. Comes with Spigen EZ fit Glas.TR screen protector put on straight out the box plus a spare, plus Spigen Tough Armour phone case. Also comes with digital receipt which I can forward on showing purchase in CO, USA last week.

give us a shout if interested.

cheers.

Is it possible to plug a screen in to your ipad (via hdmi) and have that as a 2nd screen? Thinking about using an iPad for presentations, but I'd like to have notes on the ipad to reference and then the actual presentation on a big screen via HDMI or AirPlay. My presentations would be in PDF or PowerPoint format.

Or can you only screen mirror and use 1 app at a time?

You can get an adapter here:

But from the reviews you might do just as well with a Chinese version from ebay.

That would just mirror the iPad, though, right? I couldn't have 2 separate apps open - 1 on my iPad screen and another 1 on the other screen?

Does anyone know what the latest iOS is like on the iPhone 7? Run fast enough still?

I completely ruined my X so bought an XR but just can't get on with the size of it. Just looking to get a 7 as I'm hoping I don't damage the aluminium case as easily as the glass on the X.

I installed 12.2 on an iPhone 7 Plus earlier, haven't noticed any difference so far.
