    Finally but the bullet and bought a new iPad to replace my 2017 iPad. The old iPad had gotten to the point that it was barely functional.

    I just got the regular iPad so nothing crazy. The old iPad still ran the most recent version of the OS. Well ran as in the fact that it was installed. It sure wasn't particularly operational to any useable degree anymore.

    I’ve got an old Time Machine router at my business in Denver that has a backup of a computer from 2017 on it. Will I be able to run a restore from that backup on a new MacBook?

    This is probably a dumb question......but do you think one of the newer iPads would be okay if it's inside of a backpack in a car all day (in the heat) while we are at Cedar Point? It would be turned off and probably like under a seat or something to avoid direct sunlight or whatever.

    I’m pretty sure this counts as a guarantee, Pelican. If you have any problems with the iPad, NPR has just agreed to buy you a new one.

    So, green energy charging?

    I like where your head's at but no, I don't want my phone to selectively charge when I plug it in. Feature disabled

    Does anyone know how to rollback/fix a corrupted update on an Apple Watch? Mine went to 9.6 yesterday but now just sits flashing the Apple logo and won’t start. The internet tells me I am fucked.

    edit: The thing just freaked out, started flashing, and is just a brick now. Yep…fucked.

    Thanks. I already went through all that. I talked to a buddy who had the same thing happen and he said the only fix was $200 at the Apple Store. It’s a 2.5 year old 6 and barely hanging on.

    I just ordered an Ultra for the double sized battery in hopes I won’t have to charge it everyday for a few years. ATT giving interest free loans works for me.

    Trade in is the shit. Why I always keep my phone until at least the ‘loan’ is paid. Usually 2 years. I was paying $65 a month on 12 pro max. Paid it off. Got new 14 pro max traded the 12 pro max and now paying $35 a month.

    I am having major connection issues with my AirPod pro. I’ve tried removing them, hard resetting. They popped back up once, said to hold the button while they connected, but they never did and now won’t pop up. Also won’t pop up on the PC Bluetooth.

    I’m thinking it might be dirty. Now I can’t even get it to go into reset mode. Just blinks white, with the occasional orange blink.

    Not much buzz around the IPhone 15. I know it is getting USB-C and a better camera, but what else do we know?

    Dynamic Island supposed to be on all models this year. OLED screens on all models. Camera upgrades. Plus and/or pro models getting a titanium frame. I can’t really remember much. The changes I’ve heard outside of USB-C, OLED, and Dynamic Island don’t seem like anything I’d really give a shit about.

    All I want is USB-C at this point. If it has that I’m buying, if not I’m replacing the battery on my 13.

    In regards to USB-C, I’ve read that Apple is possibly going to require MFi certification for all cables and charges in order to fast charge the phone. If they do that they are going to catch hell for it. I have a ton of usb-c chargers and cables that aren’t MFi certified because no one has been fucking doing it.

    With a 14 Pro max I’ll be sitting this one out. Let’s see what the 16 brings

    I may upgrade my Apple Watch to ultra but may wait on that as well given it’s mid cycle.

    I have the 12. Will be getting the 15 Pro. Current one has a sluggish processor, bad battery, and camera is messed up. I travel to too many incredible places to not be capturing quality photos and videos.

    Guess I’ll try to trade in my 12 somewhere for a few bucks.

    Better camera is always a plus.

    The battery in my iPhone 13 doesn’t hold a charge very well anymore despite having a battery health of 91%. Looking like I might get the 15. USB-C and Dynamic Island is what I wanted most and the 15 gets both.

    While the better battery life and always on screen of the Pro would be nice, my usage case wouldn’t really benefit much from anything else the Pro model offers, so not worth the extra $200.
