    I caved and upgraded to the 12 from the 8. Very happy with the screen size and speed, picked the 12 over 12 pro because of weight and the fact that I don’t think I’ll need the super camera.

    Ever since the most recent update my iPhone has been mediocre, at best, at connecting to my home WiFi. Often times it is connected but it won't open anything so I have to turn it off to do anything on the phone. When I try to reconnect, it will ask me for my password, which I will input, and it tells me it is incorrect. It also tells me my password is incorrect sometimes when I am sharing the password from another device that is connected to the WiFi. I know it is not the WiFi as I will be sitting at my desk working on my laptop which is connected to that same WiFi. Any ideas on what I have managed to screw up on my iPhone?

    similar issues. It’s not asking for password but it drops WiFi. And given I have shit cell service, it’ll drop calls or lose all internet.
    Also issues with AirPods not connecting or disconnecting.

    shitty iOS update

    I’ve been using it the last two weeks and have same thoughts. The integration with the rings and their version of a leaderboard are done really well. I had been using Pelotons app previously and found Fitness+ more enjoyable.

    Have you tried resetting your network settings? You will lose all your remembered wifi connections but may help.

    You can do it by hitting the little phone icon at the bottom right on the now playing display to change where the music streams from. Should bring up an option to stream it from your watch (I’m on cellular).

    The taxes on it are just like a phone too (at least on Verizon). Ends up costing me $15

    Same. I don’t listen to anything anymore when I run anyways. Use it as a meditation time but just use my watch to monitor HR and time elapsed. I don’t have cellular but that’s really the only time I feel like I’d use it

    I got the cellular watch and have never actually set a plan up for it.

    I also did that for an iPad like 5 years ago. I finally didn’t do that with the new iPad I got this year. No cell needed for an iPad when I can hotspot.

    My airpods are acting up. I listen to them one ear at a time at work, and usually not long enough for it to die before I put it back in the case.

    Lately I've been using them more, and they've been going dead after a few hours. But when I put it in the case after it shuts off, it shows as 40% charged already, if not higher.

    Is there a way to "reset" the battery? It used to be with larger batteries (your phone) you were supposed to kill it on the first charge so the battery life is the best. These have to have small batteries, so I'm sure it's not hard to mess up the battery life.

    I’ve had similar issues. I did the “reset” that I found googling battery issues and it didn’t change anything for me.

    I’m probably going to get pro’s this Christmas and retire these to workout only.

    How many people actually use these tile things anyways? I feel like the only practical purpose they have is for putting on your keys if you can’t be an adult and keep track of your keys, but I’d like to hear other use cases.

    The air tags have removable batteries. They use those flat circular watch batteries.
