I have an IPhone XR and it’s dropping off network a lot, but since I turned off and removed SIM card then reinserted it it’s been fine so far.

Just did some messing around with my music on my iPhone using iTunes (I know, I know), and all the album artwork is all ****ed up. Wrong artwork attached to the song. Looks good in iTunes, but not on the phone.

After Googling it, seems like I'm not alone. Very frustrating as there does not seem an easy fix.

Finally took the plunge and downloaded/upgraded to iOS 13.3. It went a lot smoother than I expected, and not really seeing too many changes that effect my usage.

Biggest complaint so far is what they have done to the Photos Library App. Not liking the montage layout, and the choice of viewing either by Years, Months, Days or All Photos. When looking in the month mode it seems harder to find all the photos taken in that month. I'm guessing I'm doing something wrong, but if so it is not very intuitive. There seems no logic to the sort order either. Seems OK in All Photos mode.

In Month Mode it led to a somewhat embarrassing moment when I was searching to show someone some photos yesterday (no... nothing like that!).

Also, although I don't use it much, they seem to have over complicated Reminders. Used to open straight to the list, now it opens to an over busy screen, that you have to navigate through to get tho the list. Minor gripe, but WHY... and why not offer the option to use the classic view.

I’m being given an android phone in a couple of weeks to see how I get on. So fed up with Apple and the changes they keep making. Keeping fingers crisssed I can adjust

Apparently the predictive text is working... although I'm not sure what "crisssed" is?

Last weekend I set the alarm in my phone to ensure I got up in time to watch Palace v Deby.

This last Friday night I get a message pop up suggesting I might need to set my alarm again for the same time.

Talk about trying to run your life! I can think for myself (just about)... and **** you iPhone I actually had to set it for 2 hours earlier for the Arsenal game... so you weren't that smart were you!

Maybe it will be that smart someday soon.

Also my wife plugs her phone in to recharge overnight in the bathroom. During the night she got up to have a pee and saw a message pop up saying "Scheduled to finish charging by 8:00am". In the morning she asked me what that was all about.

Apparently:

With iOS 13 and later, Optimized Battery Charging is designed to reduce the wear on your battery and improve its lifespan by reducing the time your iPhone spends fully charged. When the feature is enabled, your iPhone will delay charging past 80% in certain situations. Your iPhone uses on-device machine learning to learn your daily charging routine so that Optimized Battery Charging activates only when your iPhone predicts it will be connected to a charger for an extended period of time. The algorithm aims to ensure that your iPhone is still fully charged when unplugged.

What the hell!

I go out the door at 7pm on a Friday night and twice now the phone tells me how much time it will take to get to May Lane, which happens to be where the curry house is, that I go to every Friday.

Ok can someone help me out with this. I got hit with a spam google calendar invite and stupidly declined. A flurry of invites followed. I found out how to stop it happening on my web version of calendar, I also got it clear on my phone BUT it still pings every bloody hour that I gave a new one. Any ideas?

Yep, stared getting this as we go out most Thursday evenings to roughly the same place (one of 3 restaurants almost next to each other). Also tells me it should take 5 minutes to get there, which is true.

Why has charging my iPhone or iPad using my MacBook become such a pain?
Plug the phone in and I have to unlock the phone before it starts charging then often but oddly not always, I have to "trust the computer" too. Just charge the ******* thing FFS!

Just traded up to an XR from an old SE and I can’t believe the difference. Really pleased with it and astonished how quickly I got used to it. Naturally there’s the odd quirk, like not being able to delete mails with a swipe undies in All Mail but that’s hardly a concern. Have not even tried the wireless charging yet.

I am due an upgrade in April and was wondering what to get from the following;

iPhone 8 - This is merely from a price point of view and the fact it has middle button
iPhone XR - Probably the newest cheapest alternative
iPhone 11 - This one slightly pricier and it would be the basic model

iPhone XS and X I do not know enough about to comment, but what would people choose from this list of options?
