Ipod Touch / Iphone

Recommended Posts

Something's fucky with my X. Shipped out of China a week ago, then back in a few days later and has been EXCEPTION/DELAY ever since. 
:frantic:


Happened to me as well. Took a week longer than the original delivery date but it arrived.

All good, received today. Tres snappy. About 30 seconds after getting set up, it was confiscated to make unicorn animojis.

I think its the best device they've ever made. It is just stunning to use. It takes a week or so to re-train yourself to it. Once you do though, there is no going back.

Yeah, I'm already there. Screen is amazing and it absolutely flies through anything you throw at the processor. Although I actually wouldn't mind a slightly bigger one, feels a little light in the hand after being used to a Plus size. (Penis joke goes here, Steve.)

If anybody with an iPhone X also has a pair of Dillon Optics sunglasses, I would love to know if you are able to unlock the phone while wearing them.

I can’t unlock my phone without my prescription glasses. Not the answer you are looking for, but I would assume if you train two faces, with and without, it will work just fine.

I didn't realize that you can do two faces.  The Dillons are opaque from the outside, and Dillon themselves figured it wouldn't work, but they certainly didn't have an iPhone X in hand, when I asked

The basic answer from Apple, which you've probably seen, is that it depends on how much IR is filtered by the sunglasses.  They say that typical glasses (sun or otherwise) don't filter much and therefore aren't an issue.

In case this is happening to anyone else - it has plagued my wife for the last day - the only fix to the "my iphone now reboots every 30 seconds" is to update to 11.2.

 

I'm amazed that this bug made it into the production version of a previous update...

I forget -- I remember that one let's other people update first, but I forget what site one uses to determine when an update is safe to update?  Is there a one, or just Google?  My 11.2.1 iPad is asking to go to 11.2.6, as I usually procrastinate.

I don't know that I've ever seen a specific site that rates the updates, I'd use Google.

I've been running 11.2.6 on my iPad for a few weeks. No problems at all so far.

I have been lucky thus far with the airpods and doing laundry, but I have washed, unintentionally, the regular apple earbuds several times in different conditions and they remain.

glad to hear they survived.

 

I have switched to the sony WH1000XM2 for doing stuff around the house. Likely, it could be the zombie apocalypse going on around me, I would not notice.

Unholy carp, really?  Tell me more.  My one experience with noise-cancelling headphones is that they seem to actually make conversations happening near me worse by eliminating all the background noise.

That said, I'm happy with the isolating capabilities of the DT1770, so this will probably not lead to a purchase, but I am still curious.

They are pretty good at customizing the level of noise suppression. There is an iOS app that pairs with the headphones and samples the air pressure around you (let’s say for airplane use for instance,) surroundings noise level and then applies your preferences. It is very good. Battery lasts long as well.

you don't even need the app.  Hold the selector button for 2 seconds, and it does it in headphone.  And Dusty, you have the choice between silence or just background noise elimination.

I'll keep it in mind if I ever go the noise cancellation route again.  Every once in a while, my office mates get so rowdy that even my headphones don't mute them out.
