This new LEGO Land Rover Defender is a glorious detail-fest

You may not be able to buy a 2020 Land Rover Defender quite yet, but you could build your own - in LEGO form, at least. There's a new LEGO Technic model on the scene, and if you thought that the boxy styling of the 2020 Defender would lend itself nicely to a brick-built version, you're not wrong.

Of all Apple's surprises at its big 2019 iPhone event yesterday, the one I was least expecting was that I'd fall for a dark green phone.

iPad 10.2 hands-on: 7th-gen tablet rises to Chromebook challenge

The cheapest iPad may not seem at first glance like it could be the stand-out product of Apple's big 2019 iPhone event, but it's more important than you might think.

iPhone 11 hands-on: Narrowing the flagship gap

Colorful, more battery life, better cameras... what's not to like about the iPhone 11? It's fair to say its predecessor, the iPhone XR, had a turbulent time at launch: chronically misunderstood, but then going on to be the strongest-selling model in Apple's phone line-up.

Familiar, and yet different. You notice the changes in the iPhone 11 Pro in your hand first, I found, and those who come to Apple's new flagship from an iPhone X or iPhone XS may discover it's their fingertips that observe the greatest changes in 2019. You can thank an all-new glass back for that.
