    Winot I wholeheartedley agree with your viewpoint

    That’s what I’ll try if it persists.

    You'd think, but I also find that I can have a hard time unlocking the phone when other touch ID stuff goes through without problems. (On a 6S+ for the record.)

    Installed fine on mine.

    Do you have automatic updates on? It could have updated when you had it on charge last?

    Yeah, what's going on there? I've a few apps that are unlocked with Touch ID. They never fail. Unlocking the phone often does first / second time. Of course, to check the obvious, I've tried unlocking the apps with a non registered fingerprint and they dont' open.

    I'd guess a hash of the successful fingerprint unlock is cashed so the apps just compare to that one and have a higher inaccuracy tolerance.

    Yeah, I usually get a notification. I even went into the settings but couldn't find any current updates.

    That's exciting! Are you using them or actually has anyone tried them and are they worth it?

    Good morning. I would appreciate some advice on the following situation: I was in Italy for a couple of days where I bought a Vodaphone tourist SIM card. It worked without any problems. On my return, I have inserted my UK SIM card in my iPhone 7, it’s a 3 Mobile SIM card, and for some reason the phone says ‘No SIM’. Does anyone have any idea what is going on? Thank you.

    Is it locked to Vodafone? What SIM was in there before goint to Italy?

    I had a 3 Mobile pay as you go SIM card in the phone until last Friday, when I inserted it in the phone last night the phone said ‘No SIM’. The phone itself was an unlocked new phone bought from Amazon.

    I'm not sure how to help, but have you tried this?

    If you get an alert about the SIM card in your iPhone

    If you get an alert about the SIM card in your iPhone
    If you get an alert that says Invalid SIM or No SIM Card installed, follow these steps.

    1. Make sure that you have an active plan with your wireless carrier.
    2. Update your iPhone to the latest version of iOS.
    3. Restart your iPhone.
    4. Check for a carrier settings update. Go to Settings > General > About. If an update is available, you'll see a prompt to select OK or Update.
    5. Remove your SIM card from the SIM card tray and then put the SIM card back. Make sure that the SIM tray closes completely and isn’t loose. If you use a SIM tray from a different model iPhone or from another phone manufacturer, it might not fit properly.
    6. Try using another SIM card. If you don't have one, go to your carrier's retail store and ask them to test with another SIM card. You might need to replace your SIM card.
    If you still see an alert about your SIM card, contact Apple support.

    Learn what to do if you see a SIM not supported alert.

    Thanks for this. I’ll give it a try.

    I’ve had the X for three months now, could never go back to buttons after using it. It’s just so fluid in it’s UX...

    Me76 Not very good lurker

    So I am trying out the switch to Android. Luckily it's not costing me anything as a friend has given me his old HTC handset.

    Spent yesterday and today downloading and setting up apps. Now for live testing.

    The only thing that's annoying me at the moment is not being able to double tap to get back to the top.

    The dolphin browser allows you to jump to the top with a little arrow button that appears if you start scrolling up. However dolphin was becoming increasingly annoying and I recently changed to using firefox which doesn't seem to have anything similar. Is a feature I miss too.

    Despite my initial reservations, I bought some airpods the other day and I'm very happy so far. The fact loads of other people are now walking around in them makes me feel less of a Nathan Barley twat now. My favourite use for them is going to sleep listening to music or radio and being able to listen with them while sleeping on my side.

    I love mine, one of the best products Apple have made in the last 20 years imo.

    ...I must say, I listened to the Airpods over the weekend.
    What is the fucking fuss about? For that amount, why not get Seinnheisers or Bowers&Wilkins?
    I don't get it. And they look fucking stupid.

    Anyone have em?

    No matter how brilliant they or may not sound they look absolutely fucking ridiculous. Worst piece of design Apple have come up with a long while.

    Yes - they look like solidified sperm dangling from ear lobes.

    I don't understand why they are so popular. They genuinely sound no better than a cheapie pair of Amazon buds. I was so disappointed when I heard them. Shocking at £159!! £159!!

    And when paired up with the Apple Watch, gee...that is the look of a true wanker.

    I assumed that the airpod things were just a pisstake when they came out. There is no way to wear them without looking like a cock.

    Anyway, iphone X2 plus is rumoured to be coming in September. Just how much could they try and price that up as? I will be in the market for a new phone in September too...

    Virtual Blue ready be fair the iPhone X isn't too bad, it isn't market leading but in no way is it shit.

    I can't say the same for those who wear AirPods/ Applewatch - it's a look that screams 'I'm a tech savvy cunt but not really that tech savvy."

    Who wants to look like they've got two straws in their ears? Comically bad design.

    And just 5 hours before you run out of battery? Fuck that.

    I think that they are actually ripping the piss. Apple probably has a department staffed with people sacked from Ryanair for taking the piss too badly, airpods, £1000 x phone, X2plus I reckon will be knocking on £1500.

    And I think back in the 80's/90's they knew they would end up taking the piss, so they had this as their slogan...
