They made a bundle from me, bought the Apple Watch Ultra, AirPods Pro 2, and iPhone 14 Pro Max (256GB). Next up is a new iPad Pro. When my name comes up in the Apple Store database it has two words next to it: EASY MARK.

Can’t wait to get the pro max. Too bad I bought the APP recently. The APP 2 has some solid updates.
It was hard for me not to buy APP1 as a needed a replacement for my aging Jabra and now I wanted to try APP. Not knowing for sure that they would come, only rumours, was a big annoyance. The volume controls on APP2 is a very pleasant surprise.
