Yep. My son has switched to Samsung and although it was a little frustrating at first he now wishes he had done it sooner. I''l be doing the same this time next year I think. Itunes is awful now, Iphoto is OK but constricting. Apple maps are crap compared with Google. They arent innovative and just play catch up and make like its a real big deal. Finally I hate not having a headphone socket so they should be shot for that alone.

So looking at Google apparently the Apps store and anything to do with Apps is no longer on iTunes.

Not that I use iTunes for anything to do with Apps, I was having trouble with the Uber App and it would not delete from my phone so thought I would try via iTunes with the phone plugged in.

Apparently that is not an option anymore.

OK - upgraded to 11.0.3.

First impression... why have they changed the fonts! :wallbash:

Did a Google search and apparently a lot of people want to go back to the original font, and no one seems to know how to do that.

I hate when they do stuff like that - it should be an option not mandatory.

Also the using multiply apps at once is doing my head in... swipe or press home?

:wallbash::wallbash::wallbash:

It's tough teaching this old dog new tricks.

11.0.3 IS A NIGHTMARE

Screen freezes all time, swipe function doesnt work half the time, volume buttons dont work, apps freeze, lose the date and time on screen etc... the list goes on

cpfc4evandeva 25-10-2017 01:25 PM

I haven't downloaded it yet, so I don't think I'll bother :D

I am also going to move away from Apple once this phone stops working. I have an iPhone 6 and it's great. Apple seem to make changes for the sake of change, and charge silly prices for it. A classic case of a company going too far in terms of arrogance.

Isle of Wight 25-10-2017 04:28 PM

Funny how things change. It used to be Microsoft that came in for stick as being the big bad wolf by Apple. Now Apple are even worse.

Is there anyone here that hasn't had any issues with the latest version? I have an iPhone SE and interested to hear of any experiences.

Have to say mines been fine since the update.

karl.eldridge 25-10-2017 05:49 PM

Not had an issue.

fang 25-10-2017 05:53 PM

No problems here. I'm not entirely sure what 11.0.3 brings to the party apart from the GIFs' on messages.

montstar 26-10-2017 08:46 PM

have an iphone 7 and not had an issue.. the gifs on messages were on the last update - theyve just made them a lot more prominent

one of the nicer touches is if you do a screengrab you can then write draw or circle things on it or crop it...

Hedgehog 26-10-2017 10:42 PM

I'm not having any problems per se, but all the "little" differences are really annoying. I just keep saying to myself, "Why?". Different fonts, different appearances, different maps layout, different calculator format. I'm hating the App closure swipe technique required now.

When all is said and done it's no different... Just looks different.

Anyone ordered the iPhoneX today?

According to reports, such as THIS one, there is a shortage of stock and 'Demand for the new phone is expected to be extremely high, so if you’ve managed to read this far through this post, it’s probably already too late, especially considering reports of supply issues due to difficulty in manufacturing sensors.'

However, Apple are still taking orders and there seem to be plenty left. I wonder if this was just a marketing ploy to encourage a buying frenzy. Perhaps, however the high price has put potential buyers off.

I have ordered one as it's paid for by my business, but I am not sure I would have been prepared to fork out £1k had I been funding this myself. The iPhoneX could be a bit of a dud.

Adlerhorst 27-10-2017 02:10 PM

Would have done but I managed to leave my wallet at home

Not to mention the terrible battery life

Adlerhorst 27-10-2017 06:05 PM

Delivery is 5-6 weeks.

Hmmmm

Galo 28-10-2017 09:08 AM

I’ve just switched over from Android, i think both the notch in the screen and face to unlock features are both terrible decisions for the 10 from Apple and can’t see them so opted for the 8 plus instead. Loving the camera so far but portrait mode seems crap, the blacking out of the background never seems to work.

I ordered one yesterday, there certainly hasn't been any indication with the email responses from the purchase that it won't be ready to collect from my local Vodafone shop next Friday.
