    Apparently I just need to reboot my phone according to the comments in here.

    watch 6 is pretty tempting, the blue color is real nice. I have the series 3 but have largely stopped wearing it. I think I need a different band.

    After a few days of using 14 - it’s ok. It will be cooler when 3rd party apps can make widgets. I dont Have a ton of need for any of the native app widgets. Calendar is nice but that’s it.

    I like iOS 14 so far but it’s unfortunate that some of these features should have been put in like ten years ago.

    I like Battery Grapher. Tells you how much time your battery has left and when to put it on charge before it hits 0%. The app isn’t very accurate when you first download it because it has to learn about your battery and how your usage drains it, but it gets more accurate the longer you have it installed.

    Weather and clock right now

    I’ve seen some custom home screens where they use the shortcuts app to make a shortcut to an app and you can customize the icon.

    A nice feature I don’t recall seeing being announced anywhere is receiving a notification on my phone when my watch is fully charged

    Another is the watch displaying the nightstand mode if you’re using the sleep schedule feature in the clock app. So it will display it even the watch is on your wrist, not just when it’s charging.

    No idea where you are but if there’s a UBreakiFix anywhere near you check them out. I dropped a weight on my phone at the gym (very heavy dumbbell as I’m a ripped Adonis) and totally destroyed the screen & bent the frame. They fixed it for like $200, granted it was an XR not an 11, but they were like $250+ cheaper than the other 2-3 quotes I got.

    If you know a person who knows how to work on phones I’ve found that they’ll do it for like $20 on the side if you buy the part.

    Looks like you can get a replacement for $119. It won’t be the same OEM display quality, but close enough for a kid’s phone.
    https://www.ifixit.com/Store/iPhone...zW_9xCN6vJXhmtp7wZ17o3X-et7EmXfsaAjnpEALw_wcB

    Apple repair is $279 according to this page. I had to send into their central service last time I checked into this option, but you may have local service where you are.

    When you long hold to move around apps or delete etc. there’s little white dots at the bottom, one for each screen.
    Tap those dots and then all your screens pop up. You just uncheck them all except your Home Screen.

    you are left with Home Screen. Widget Screen and App Library

    Dropped my X drunk last night. Shattered part of the screen. Usable. I planned on trading in for iPhone 12 Pro (or whatever they call it) and looked today...that is worth $280 today. Now ZERO

    When you can order a 12, I will check trade-in again and what it costs locally to fix the screen.

    Or sell it as is to get something.

    Dammit. I've never broken a screen on any iPhone.

    That’s IMO too small the 12 inch iPad allows you to have the complete page on your screen without having to scroll. Not sure if I am explaining what I mean.
