After watching some YouTube stuff on iOS 13, it looks like a bunch on stuff I personally would have no interest in or need for.

Adlerhorst 20-09-2019 08:39 AM

The only reason I can think of why they are releasing it now and an updating almost immediately is so people can backup their old phones on 13 before
migrating over to the new phones (which will come with 13).

I’m not going near it until 13.1 is out

New ipadOS out on September 30th includes support for external USB/SD card storage. As does ios 13 for the iPhone. A big step forward for these devices.

A nice step forward, but what for what purpose ?

Presumably ios13 is best on brand new or newish phones that have bigger memory anyway, and external memory goes against the idea of using the cloud.

I wonder what the thinking is behind it ?

A move towards laptop replacement seems to be mentioned a lot.

Personally it will make it much easier to take movies etc with me when travelling and remove the need for a separate tablet.

Ah... makes sense.

That the others have been doing for years !!!! Cutting edge stuff from Apple yet again. :( Welcome though. I have a year to run on my contract and was going to jump ship to Android but this might make me rethink. All they have to do now is get rid of the stupid notch.

My wife lost all her iPhone contacts in her car phone. I've spent 2 days messing with it, taking it to the dealer, searching the internet etc..

Finally found some anecdotal stories about emojis causing phone books in the car to crash.

Sure enough my wife added an emoji to a new contact entry last week. When she used her car for the first time 2 days ago, the phone book automatically updated and crashed the system apparently. Removed the emoji and all the contacts miraculously were restored to the car phone book.

One of those butterfly flaps it's wings cases I think...

Looks like a hell of a lot of changes for one update. A bit too many for my liking... I think I'll resist as long as possible.


Yes, but only as I have the new phone; have to add the wide lense camera is fantastic.

I saw this morning that 13.1 was already in beta before 13 was released and 13.1 arrives this week.

To push the “laptop replacement” angle i suspect.

**already mentioned. Oops.

I have found a thing on the phone where it shows me a list of attachments that I can delete to free up some space. One of these is a pic from 2015 but I have no idea what message it was part of. I have tried google but have no clue how I can find what this picture is attached to. I have a date and thats it. Any iphone jedi master out there got any idea?

good decision - 13 is a dog and yet another in the growing line of crap software releases from the new Apple

Why is it? I've not upgraded yet and wont for ages whilst they fix all the problems and I don"'t want the usual slowdown in performance that comes with an üpgrade

Lots of things.

Suddenly cannot connect to home devices like the Sonos or the thermostat
Safari address bar is overlaid by content on some sites so you can’t actually search and need to open a new tab
Safari links need pressing twice before they register
Airport Utility crashes on launch
Apple ID screen cannot be exited if you view it whilst on the Apple Arcade tab in the App Store app

Just lots of shit bugs that are apparent to anyone within two minutes of use; don’t forget Apple had more than two million beta testers ffs

Brett 23-09-2019 10:52 PM

Double tapping in Safari to zoom now only works intermittently and without any rhyme or reason.

It’s a dreadful release.

Isle of Wight 23-09-2019 10:55 PM

Why do they do this? Once a fantastic company with innovative products now just a me too and even they don’t work :(

They’ve got a nonce who doesn’t know what he’s doing running the company?

Yeah, I’m not a fan of Tim Cook in the slightest.

It’s the worst one yet. Everything I try and do is buggy and my battery life has taken a massive hit.

a decent android phone with a decent sized Micro SD would be even easier....
