    Made fuck all difference to my 6S. It’s slower obv because it’s 3 generations old but it still works pretty good anyway. But can’t tell difference.

    I got an iPad pro through work. It cost them about £650 I think. My first foray into Apple products. It's very nice. But I'm struggling to see how it's really any better than my old Lenova tab2, which cost us £110.

    You need to look at the logo. That's why it cost so much! :D

    Sounds like overkill for your needs.

    (And mine too. I bought a new iPad mini the other day for £150.)

    Don’t think this has affected me, but:

    Apple iOS 12 Has An Embarrassing Problem — Forbes Magazine

    “The problem is iOS 12’s implementation of this feature* is merging threads with different contacts, thereby creating potentially embarrassing situations where your message can go to several people unintentionally.”

    * a unified thread for iMessage contacts who have multiple phone numbers and emails.

    That sounds like a stupid idea in the first place even if it works as intended because you might see your contact's different messages all in one thread but they won't, and they'd start to get replies to email by text and so on.

    Just the other day I was talking to a friend with an iphone who didn't rrealise that if she sends a group text, non iphone users don't see it as a group message. Which explains why sometimes messages from her don't make any sense because I don't know who else is copied in.

    I think apple are a bit stupid about this stuff, designing things for a fictional world where everyone has an iphone.

    That's quite the clusterfuck:

    Mrs la rouge has up until now had a feature phone on which she only called or texted.

    But she wanted to be able to FaceTime our grown up daughters and be involved in group messaging. So she got an iPhone SE.

    She is extremely technophobic. She won’t even use computers. She has an email address but I open the account (because she won’t even allow me to tell her the password. Because that makes her panic), and she dictates them to me. She has online banking on the laptop, but gets me to operate it. (Again, she gets me - a dyslexic discalculic with a bad memory - to look after the passwords). She will come home from work and greet me with “I want to send an email to Jo”. (Her half sister).

    But on getting the phone became enamoured with Apple News and a Feedly news app I set up with things that interest her (books, art, film, health, exercise etc). She’s been scrolling through these things like a teenager.

    Anyway. I went to walk the dog and returned to find she’d tried to install iOS 12. She doesn’t even know what it is. She just started following commands on the screen. She got half way through amd buggered up the Apple ID (because she doesn’t know it. Because she told me not to bother her with details like that, “just get it working”).

    Now I’ve got the same screen asking for Apple ID and I can’t move forward or backwards. The only device she has is her phone. Nothing else.

    Fuckety fuck.

    This has been a long moan about my partner of 25 years whom I love deeply but who drives me fucking nuts.

    She's probably blocked her account..... give them a call and see if they can unlock it.

    Just been at the Apple shop. The guy fixed it in two seconds.

    “We’ve had hundreds of these in the last couple of weeks. We don’t know what’s happening”.

    So it wasn’t her. I take it all back.

    He seemed to believe it was a matter of logging on using a different WiFi. As it worked I don’t need to know any more than that.
