    The Totallee soft case is perfect for my needs. Minimal but enough protection if it falls out of my pocket or off the couch.

    Dear Apple bros....anyone have their iPhone Sim cards below up when iOS 17.1 updates?

    Just happened to my wife's phone. Can't get it resolved. Seems to be a wide spread issue fucking over a lot of people

    so the sim card stopped working, meaning you have no service now?

    if you put a different sim card in it, does the phone work? if so, then contact your carrier. they should be able to replace the card but if they have nothing, then you can do a restore via iTunes because that will reset the sim profile

    if a new sim card does not work, you can still try a restore but that tends to be more of a hardware issue. but I would not go to a store, I would call the carrier and also restore the phone/call AppleCare to check the activation profile

    Yeah, she has no service. Say sim care failure or something else. We don't have another Sim Card. She also doesn't have service to call...I guess she can call on mine. It's verizon

    it just needs to be the same style sim, which all phones of the last 8 years or so should be nano sim (until the most recent e-sim stuff)

    so it can be an android on at&t as long as the card is the same

    Not trying to be dumb, but what happen when I insert and old sim card that is associated with a deactivated phone? It's not going to cell service, right? Or is there some other kind of error that will help me?

    that's why it needs to be an active sim card

    if it's not active, it'll still say no service

    Is there a good place to find new watches, previous series?

    wife needs a new one. But she doesn’t want/need the newest. Really she just cares about heart features and fitness tracking.

    Also wonder if a Fitbit or something would be best.

    I find it hard to believe every previous series sold out. Just wonder what all these stores did with left over stock. Does Apple buy them back?

    Yea it's supposed to be super simple but I've had verying degrees of trouble everytime I've done it. You are supposed to just unscrew, replace battery, screw the top on. Hasn't worked that well for me.

    Got a new MacBook Air like a month and a half ago. If I use Safari to watch YouTubeTv or Youtube every few moments there is a soft popping/cracking noise. Use Apple Music nothing. Is there away to get that to stop on Safari? Use a different explorer for videos? Take back? Anyone Bueller?

    Sounds like a software issue with safari so I doubt returning it would do anything. Does the noise happen while using chrome or Firefox?

    definitely test another browser to see if it's universal or app specific

    shouldn't be anything in safari to make it browser specific

    I have my AirTags in those.

    The AirTags are pretty slick plastic so if you have it loose in a pocket or something there’s a chance it pops out IMO. If you’re gonna stick it in a zippered pocket somewhere then I think it’s fine solo.
