Bought a 6th gen iPad off craigslist. Really just want it for newspapers and reading. Are there any cool apps I should know about though
so we are having various hot beverages together in the moments we can see eachother.

Ok also: is there a way to get rss feed links to open in an app that they actually work in, not News?

and does anyone have a mobi reader they recommend. The two top hits on app store crash on opening for me

I have an iPhone 6 and bought a $30 battery off eBay and replaced it. It was a pain to get the project done but saved myself buying another apple product.

Yeah, I chose to go with Pocket over Instapaper though because they have a desktop osx app and a chrome plugin that works seamlessly

Don't think I like Dark Mode enough to keep it on all the time, but I love it as an option. Especially for when I want to conserve battery life. Though if I upgrade to an 11 pro max with it's like 15 hour battery life I guess that won't be such a big issue...

Depends on whether your phone has an OLED (yes, some) or LCD (no, not really) screen.

ublock origin no longer works with safari 13: https://github.com/el1t/uBlock-Safari/issues/158

i've moved onto adguard (which is free) but I might try out 1blocker (which I use on my phone and works fine)

The games in Apple Arcade look genuinely great and the fact there’s no micro transaction bullshit may get me to Play. Downloaded Skate City first and its pretty fun.

Is it safe to assume that 5g will be on iPhone 11xs in 2020 or is it being held off until iPhone 12 in 2021?

Basically my X is starting to drain quickly on the battery and my renewal is up in December... so it’s either get an 11 or tough it out and wait for the next cycle... which will be worth doing for 5g, but not otherwise.
love you guys!

anyone else feel like this hype around 'dark mode' across all brands/platforms over the last couple of years is ... incredibly absurd

we were able to change desktop colours back in windows 3.0

(don't get me wrong I use dark mode and like it)


actually I think I just really get irked at the way minor 'quality of life' improvements on phones, that should have been obvious to the designers and incorporated 5 years or more ago, are drip fed to us each year as New Product

congratulations 'UX rock stars' on making using your devices less irritating to use

So never do the pick up option from an Apple Store or you will be waiting in a line for 30+ min while other stores walk down the line advertising to you. :x

Picked up the pro max today and while I need to get used to the size (from the X) I really like it. The battery is incredible

i listened to music and podcasts all day playing poker and i'm at like 75% on my 11. compared to my 7 which i'd have to charge 3x a day this is great for that reason alone.
the wide angle camera is cool too i guess.

Maybe but it’s more notable in this upgrade. I think they were able to shove a bigger battery in there bc of the extra room available after eliminating force touch. It’s also the first iPhone to actually get very slightly bigger and heavier than the previous version (not noticeable at all though)

I’m having serious thoughts about returning the 11 Pro and sticking with the 7+ for another year. Just feeling a bit underwhelmed, even with the much better battery life, camera, screen etc.. am I crazy?

my ipad pro's battery in the first few months was insane. i'd watch shit on vlc for hours and barely a nudge on the battery. but now i feel like it's running out all the time. might be an app that hogs it somehow.
