    Had a problem with my phones WiFi and running out of charge that got way worse in the last few days. As I’m away travelling with work that’s a problem. Took it into an iStore and they gave me a new replacement phone straight away no argument.

    Was very impressed with the service

    Just upgraded to the SE. It's setting up now. Quite excited.

    I bought my 5c outright when nobody wanted them anymore. It was so much better for me than the Android phone I switched from. I didn't have a good experience of Android.

    But it had started to gum up and show signs of age. I've been deleting apps and stuff to make space, but when the new iPhone was released decided it was time to go to the model nobody wanted any more. This time I couldn't afford to buy a handset outright, so I got a good contract deal.

    I'll let you know how I get on.

    The SE is probably the best phone they ever designed. It shall be missed.

    I have an SE, it’s great. Dunno what I’ll do though when it dies eventually, the trend seems to be for huge phones and I have tiny hands so the size of the SE is perfect for me. Hopefully it’ll go for another few years.

    The fingerprint recognition should work Danny, maybe take it back?

    iOS 12 is actually noticeably faster. Nice.

    I suspect it’s a guitarist problem: I have callouses on my thumb that disrupt the whorls.

    It’s working more often now. I just have to position my thumb to avoid the knarly bits.

    Hmm. I was going to get an iPad. Was holding out to the announcement but not thing mentioned about the new ‘pro’. Considering getting the standard iPad instead of waiting for the new pro/x iPad to come out. Hmm

    Do the setup bit several times, as if each time was a different finger, it makes it more accurate.

    Anyone else finding ios12 has changed some kind of gamma or whiteness setting on their home screen and lock screen? It makes things harder to read, especially white text on a coloured background.

    Have you got it set to sun set - sun rise. With the sun vanishing much quicker now it comes on much earlier in the evening. Which if you’ve got bright lights on indoors can be a bit weird.

    Its rather likely that new pro ipads will come in October, so wait if you can.

    I’m enjoying my new SE. It’s running a late iOS 11. I like it so I’m nervous to update to 12.

    One thing I’m not sure about is in photos it seems to do this Harry Potter thing of making slightly moving pics by default. Is there a way to take stills by default?

    There is a button at the top of the camera screen you can click on it’s called Live Photo or something.

    Mate at work has just installed iOS 12 on his SE and has found it faster.

    I installed yesterday. Not noticed any speed difference. But the screen time widget is alarming!

    Anyone else's iPhone kep asking for the iCloud password a lot when opening apps? Very annoying

    paolo Well-Known Member

    No, both tablet and phone have been fine for me.

    That sounds very weird. If Apple still do online chat based support, could be worth raising a support case.

    (They fixed something for me on my Mac that was iCloud related, ages back.)

    Apparently, the Xiaomi Mi8 is better in pretty much every respect, (including the camera) than the iPhone X.
    At about 1/3 of the price of the iPhone (or less), I think I'll be treating myself to one.
    I was going to say Apple are falling behind and need to up their game but I reckon if they re-released the iPhone 1 and called it retro, their loyal fanboys customers would still be camping outside Apple stores to buy it.
