    My 12 pro max battery has just decided to go to shit in the past couple months after rarely going below 50% after a whole day of use. Now I can't make it 8 hours without going down to 20% with minimal use compared to what I used to do.

    I’m still shocked there hasn’t been a massive planned obsolescence class action yet

    I’d still get a 7 when they release the 8. Either a markdown or someone selling to get an 8.

    I got a stainless 6 with the stainless band for less than the new stainless 6 (band is easily +$400)

    take advantage of the annual upgrade people

    I'm not buying used given the battery on this thing degraded over 20% in less than two years

    hi friends - i have a question that is really stumping me.

    I'm trying to prevent my AirPods from switching devices automatically. doing the Google search, it says to go into Settings-->Bluetooth-->Select the "i" next to my AirPods-->"Connect to this iPhone"-->"When Last Connected to this iPhone".

    Problem is, I don't have the "Connect to this iPhone" option in my settings. Does anyone have any advice or tricks around this problem? Or any idea why I wouldn't have this option available? I have 2nd gen AirPods (i believe) and the iPhone 13 Pro.

    Weird. I see it. I have the same version of AirPods and am running an iPhone 12.

    I have an airpod in one ear and I see Connect to this Phone directly beneath Auto Ear Detection

    i'd guess they aren't connected to another device "properly"

    so you can forget them and re-pair to each device individually (so tap on the "i" and hit forget this device on each one you pair them to)

    Apple engineers were scheduled to call me at 4:30 today regarding my Apple TV+ problems. I told them I couldn't take the call until after I get home from work.

    So what do they do? They tried calling me at 3:15 when I was still at work and told me I would have to reopen my case since I didn't answer

    :awshucks:
