Tech journalist and frequent traveller Nafisa Akabor on new tech you can use on your travels.
Travelling with the right gadgets makes all the difference. Recently, I’ve been playing with the iPhone Xs camera, giving the Fitbit Charge 3 a run for its money, using a Bluetooth tracker for my luggage, and killing time with Netflix documentaries. I also found a convenient way to organise my cables.
The iPhone Xs is a worthy, though pricey upgrade from an iPhone 7 or older. The camera is leaps ahead with improved bokeh (the way the lens renders out-of-focus points of light) on Portrait mode, adjustable after a shot is taken. And say goodbye to under- and over-exposed photos with the incredible Smart HDR update that is sure to make your travel photos pop.
