This update is once again important for security reasons — please update as soon as possible.
Today’s update is important for security reasons — please update as soon as possible to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
Apple released iOS 10.3.1 yesterday. Please make sure to upgrade as soon as possible, as this release fixes a nasty bug where an attacker could potentially inject code into your Wi-Fi chip if he or she is in range of your device.
iOS 10.3 is out. It introduces APFS and I strongly suggest making both an iTunes and iCloud backup, just to be safe. You can find all the new things, including finding your AirPods, here.
A month or so ago, I wrote a post in desperation. It was about my iPhone 7 Plus — something was wrong with it, but Apple diagnostics did not unearth and problems, hence Support did not want to provide me with a replacement unit. I tried everything, from spending multiple hours on the phone with Apple Support, to escalating the issue, to calling Apple Support in other countries — all to no avail. I finally wrote a very long email to Tim Cook and Phil Schiller…
I’m finally fed up. My iPhone 7 Plus, because of it’s abysmal battery life, is now officially the worst phone I have ever owned. I’m an iPhone-user since 2008. Since then I’ve had the 3GS, 4, 4S, 5, 5S, 6, 6 Plus, 6S Plus, and now 7 Plus. I recall that I once had issues with battery life on one of the older models, but it wasn’t anything dramatic and a subsequent iOS update fixed the problem. This cannot be said about the 7 Plus. In addition, Apple Support is basically telling me that I’m on my own.
I filed a bug today about PDFs, Mail, and Messages:
Text copied from PDFs attached to mail messages cannot be pasted into Messages (both SMS and iMessage).
1. Open Mail.
2. Download & open PDF attached to email.
3. Select & copy text from PDF.
4. Try to paste text into new or existing Message (iMessage or SMS) — no paste prompt after tapping the text field.
After tapping the text field, a “paste” popup should appear.
Nothing happens after tapping the empty text field.
If you’re reading this and know someone who could push this forward, I’d be very grateful.
Apple released iOS 10, watchOS 3 and tvOS 10 about 20 minutes ago or so. The build is the same as the dev and public GM so if you’re on either of those, you do not need to (or can) update.
Please remember to do a full iTunes backup before updating though — add a password so that you also backup your Health data, as well as your passwords and remembered Wi-Fi networks.
I’ve been thinking about what Apple showed us at this year’s WWDC 2016, and I can’t help but be satisfied with what they presented. iOS and macOS seems to have finally been accepted as mature operating systems, and I haven’t seem much criticism, nor any ‘Apple is doomed’ stories.
