MrElectrifyer, 31 Jan 2018They should at least give it the capacity of accomplishing everything dumb phones were capable... moreI agree. these features are mandatory!
(plus. the control center thing was added in iOS 7)
OogWay, 31 Jan 2018No way! Join Android??? You kidding? Join the fragmented platform?? Are you even serious?Ofcourse. I am serious.
and fragmantation... pfft. you're talking like it's a bad thing that not being solved. it's called CHOICE. you can have in android the freedom of doing whatever you want. DOWNLOAD SONGS directly. (there's no aTunes. drag, drop, solved) you can be specific in getting the device in the size you want. AND MORE.
The OS software did not land on Earth from Mars. It was created by people. So evaluate your people's skills and number, and hire and fire as necessary. You have loads of cash in reserves (our cash), so go invest on a software super workforce, both sizable and skillful workforce.
old rotten reasons, from an old rotten fruit company smh!!
i wonder if they have supported bluetooth 5.0 (not 4.2) within ios 11 as it's high bitrate at 600kb per second, we know that the hardware iphone x, iphone 8/8plus supports it, but does the software enable this feature? or will they use it within the next software update when they release sucessor to airpods ( or beats sucessor) which does support this
So much money, resources and manpower.
Reliability / performance should already be baked into every release.
The next release BETTER BE reliable!
They should at least give it the capacity of accomplishing everything dumb phones were capable of. Till today, iDevices that are now selling with a $1200 price tag still remain too dumb to accomplish the following extrenely basic tasks which were long available on ancient dumb phones:
- Bluetooth contact/media/file sharing with any other Bluetooth-equipped device
- Downloading media from 3rd party sources and integrating it with central media players without a separate computer
- System-wide automation via quick-switch/scheduled profiles (apps like Tasker take this to a whole new smart level on Android)
- System-wide storage expansion via MicroSD card
- Being used as a USB flash storage (makes syncing files from ANY PC to my Note 8 a breeze without needing to install any other software)
And it took iOS only a decade to finally get the following dumb phone functions:
- Central file management
- System automation via NFC tags (but this is still only on a per app basis instead of system wide)
OogWay, 31 Jan 2018No way! Join Android??? You kidding? Join the fragmented platform?? Are you even serious?Fragmentation... such a bad feature. That's why PCs are good for nothing and Mac kills them in everything ... oh wait.
Btw it's not called fragmentation, it's called having a choice. "Fragmentation" is being solved by having standards btw. Who knew , you can both have competition on hardware/software and good quality. You speak like those problems have not been solved 30 years ago... Apple bots did enough damage by keeping standarization of the android platform back...
Good news. IOS 11 is the first time I told myself "If Jobs was still there, ios surely wouldnt be becoming such a mess"
Kiyasuriin, 30 Jan 2018To apple: Do to everyone a favor. and join android. End of story. keep the awesome SoCs. and... moreNo way! Join Android??? You kidding? Join the fragmented platform?? Are you even serious?
Good to hear that from Apple. Making iOS strong and reliable again should always be the priority. Hope Apple keep up the good work especially when comes to updates. Don't let it become like Android.
There just waiting for android os to introduce the features in 2018 so Apple can use them in 2019.
Its about time. They try to add a couple features and just end up with a few years of a disaster.
So "optimized"...bugs and crashes.
If iOS 12 could make iphone faster, doesnt it make new iphone sold less?
I think it is more like because new iPhones will come without home button, and it needs refinements in user experience.
i hope Apple will really do that.
Sounds more like retaliation to users for being arrogant enough to notice that one "feature" they didnt approve.
It is as if....Apple device users are supposed to be there for Cuperino, and not the other way around.
Funny and very unsettling PR move for iphone users.
Yes, been using an iPad Air 2 for 3 years now and performance hasn't seen any sign of degredation.
Running iOS 11.3, it could play heavy games smoothly when they're going to be choppy on some new mid range devices today.
