Just device backups without photos with an iPhone and iPad are pushing the 5gb limit for me, or close enough to trigger the stupid pop up

I pay for 50 but it’s the idea behind it that’s so easy to fix and yet

On the plus side, new CarPlay is great. How is Android auto for anyone who’s used both?

android auto is like functionally exactly the same thing except way flakier. its what finally got me to switch back to iphone. i bought a car with android auto and i had to try like 5 different usb cables until i could find one that connected at all and even then i had to reboot my phone at least once a day to get it to start aa and it disconnected constantly. the only thing i miss is being able to play stuff on spotify with voice commands but apparently its getting siri support in the next few weeks.

I hated CarPlay but I like Android Auto. It was unreliable with my Pixel 2 but with my Galaxy S10e it works correctly every time.

I like the functionality of Android Auto a lot more, but it takes way longer to start up and glitches a lot more often (Pixel XL). CarPlay is more limited but works almost instantaneously/totally smoothly every time. Typical Android vs. iOS stuff, really.

for people with the 11 pro: when you're using your camera, when do the sides turn transparent (to show what is outside of the frame)? the sides on mine only become transparent if there's a fair amount of light and if i'm zoomed in (somewhere around 1.5-1.7x). i'm wondering if the camera isn't properly handing off from one lens to another, or something like that?

Finally had the bright idea to delete the default music app from my phone. The curse of hearing the first 10 seconds “À Tout le Monde“ every time i start my car has been lifted

god damnit did they remove the feature that lets you double-tap to zoom into a text column for boarding convenience too

edit: ofc it's working now as I post this after not working the last 50 times I tried. hopefully just a bug

The transparency occurs around 0.8 - 2.0x on my 11 pro. I almost panicked after a recent update: for half a day the camera was blurry on 1.0x setting (but clear on all others outside 1.0). I kept cleaning the lens, turned the phone on/off, hard reset, etc....Then the next day the blur was gone. Weird.

well it doesn't even reliably work after pinch-zooming, either. jfc

and text manipulation on this platform is still SO. FUCKING. BAD. why is there no way to paste or select when using the (excellent) spacebar-trackpad-cursor mode except by reverting to the maddeningly errorprone tap-the-text method

someone needs to make a case that's also a bluetooth keyboard and just has command-x/c/v etc. shortcut buttons on the back

I love how they change music app with every OS update. I was trying to shuffle a playlist and kept swiping up since they changed it to that a few years back (which was admittedly hard to find at the time) and it just kept closing the app. Now you have to click the playlist icon bottom right to get to it. So dumb

ok wow i just realized you can basically touch and hold your finger down by the spacebar to access the cursor, meaning your finger doesn't need to cover the text after all
