No Siri on iPad Air 2

So Siri was missing from my iPad Air 2 and having searched and reviewed a number of google results I still could not find and answer. I was surprised by the number of people experiencing the same problem. Basically Siri was appearing in settings and although listed in restricted apps, that was not the problem.

If you have a newer version iPad that should have Siri and you can't find it even after a reset and backup, the only other explanation is that the iPad is using a restricted ecosystem. For example, a profile set up by your work which restricts Siri. As soon as I removed the work profile, Siri was back again.

You are welcome!

Nikon coolpix p900 83x optical zoom pictures and video of the moon with tripod, on a clear night

I am enjoying my new Nikon coolpix p900. I bought a tripod which I was testing tonight and it is brilliant. The moon felt really close on a cold but clear night. Enjoy and see my other videos at

Nikon coolpix p900 83x optical zoom review with videos and photos

So I threw in the towel and decided to get a Nikon Coolpix p900. Got mine for £360 used twice only. The zoom is incredible and I took my camera to the nearest airport to do a bit of plane spotting. The weather was humid and overcast, with light showers. I was about 2.5km away. I am not a professional photographer and I did not use a tripod, otherwise the photos would have been much better. Enjoy!

                                          Without zoom this is how far i was. Can't even see
                                           the planes.

                                      Now you can just about see the orange "EasyJet" planes

                                          Getting closer.

                                          Full zoom, including digital.

                                          Caught this one before it disappeared into the clouds
