Been running iOS 10 beta for a few days on my 6s plus and despite a few crashes it's fairly stable

New lock screen is nice but can't use any of the new messages features unless the other person is running the beta too

Got an Iphone 5S 16 Gig. Dropped it and screen shattered but phone still works. Was time to get an upgrade anyway. So I am waiting on my SE in a few days.

Wanting advice on best way to get money back on the 5S. Should I just try and sell as is and get some cash from someone who can repair or wants to mess with it? Or should I spend the money to repair and then try and sell it? Would love to somehow just get $100 back out of the 5s to put toward the new one.

fix the screen. worst case, you'll make the cost of the screen back and you'll be able to sell it easier.

Saw a few places online charging around $80 to fix the screen. What should I expect to pay? Is that standard or should I shop around for cheaper?

So Forbes is reporting that from reputable sources, there's a rumor that the iphone 8 (not 7) will be all-glass. If that is the case, that could make for a very interesting phone, even for us non-apple people.

Patent to disable your camera's ability to take pictures and video in certain locations

I would never feel the need to record a concert or a movie on my phone, but I'll be damned if I ever purchase a product where there are certain locations that I can't use the $8-900 worth of hardware I paid for.

I was on the fence about switching to the Apple ecosystem, but if they implement this I will be AFL.

My company has a stack of old iphones laying around that are wiped to a factory restore. If I pop my sim in them will anyone know? Most are 4S from former employees.

should note AT&T phones.

I can't think of any good reason to remotely disable cameras. Everything I can think of is petty protectionism at best and tyranny at worst.

apple used to sell refurbished ones. if not, i think some of the big box stores sell them refurbished. other than that it's a crapshoot. i buy used phones off ebay with mostly success.

The phone before my Edge, I bought off of someone from Craigslist for 500, it was a Note 4. I got a deal on the Edge, but we paid about 800 for my wife's phone when she got it.

I think going forward I'm just going to take my lumps and continue to get the subsidized price and re-up for 2 years. Even though you get a discount with Verizon on your line if you own the phone, it still comes out cheaper to take the subsidy.

And besides, I'm never going to leave Verizon, no matter how much I dislike them. I hate ATT even worse, and Sprint's coverage isn't good enough.

In those environments you're better off just banning phones altogether considering that they're excellent all-around surveillance devices and electronic attack vectors.

Think about the impacts to whistle-blowing. Think about a theme park than bans cameras in order to funnel people to their own photography services or just to over protect their IP, fair use be dammed. Think about cameras getting turned off during protests, illegal police actions, and other scenarios. Think outside the US where you have oppressive governments who will just use this as another tool to hide corruption and tyranny.

This is not a tool for doing good.

Generally really like the new ios but splitting the control center up into 2 or 3 different views and not giving me the option to stick with one is fucking bullshit

^Yep - I hate it. My phone connects to bluetooth/airplay in the car every time and then I can't hear notifications. Apparently there isn't a way to disable that and now it takes more effort to disconnect every time I get in the car.

Ugh my iphone is going to shit some sort of issue with the touchscreen I guess. It works fine at times and others its completely unresponsive and other times it just acts like someone is randomly pushing the screen opening up apps or typing jibberish. I have tried removing screen protector and case and factory resetting phone to no avail .

Apple store is constantly booked up over a week in advance as well so thats a big pain in the ass. Any suggestions on places that arent shady that might be able to take a look and has experience to know what the problem may be?

I went by there they said could be screen or could be the IC that controls the screen. Phone is paid off in Jan so may just see if they run any good deals over holidays and try to live with it till then. Some days it doesnt happen so its more of an annoyance at this point I suppose.

I wonder if its a known and common issue if it might be worth setting up an appt with the Apple store and maybe they will swap out the phone if thats the case? Wishful thinking I am sure.

Right and what I read was they likely just board swap with one with the same issue so eventually it will happen again not to mention you lose all your data. Guess I will just have to get another phone mine is paid off in Jan.

Just got a 7plus from a 5s. The screen is really amazing. Substantially clearer.

The lack of a headphone jack was a bad idea. If apple releases some amazing lightning headphones and i didn't have to carry around 2 headphones, one for phone one for laptop, then I would have been fine with it.

just clip the adapter to the bottom of your headphones

I just did a test between the headphones that came with the 5s using the adapter, and the ones that come with the 7, and the 5s with the adapter has substantially better audio quality, and significantly lower noise level than the lightning headphones.

I think i'll just put the 7 headphones in a drawer and keep the adapter permanently on the old headphones and hopefully when i need to use them with my computer, i won't lose the adapter.

for christmas i got a little leash thing that attaches the adapter to the headphones, but now i can't find it online. I thought it was from griffin but i don't see anything.

they also make little keychains to plug your adapter onto

My wife's old phone (Galaxy S4) is dying and I'm thinking she might be happier with an iPhone as she has an iPad mini as well. Since she doesn't need a lot of horsepower so to speak and doesn't want a physically huge phone, was thinking of the SE. How does it stack up to, say, a 6S for anyone who's used both?

My 18 mo old iPhone 6s is starting to fuck up on me.

1st issue a few weeks ago- during runs, my Runkeeper app (and another one I tried) would kill my phone.. after about 30 minutes. Would show a dead battery- after being above 50%.

So I deleted the running apps.

Now the screen suddenly dims (not dark, but "dimmer"). And the battery life SUCKS.... I work from home, so I'm not on it all the time.

can anyone recommend a charge+listen dongle? I bought the belkin thinking that it would be more reliable than a cheap one from amazon, but now when you are plugged in if you move it loses connection and vibrates which is annoying if you are watching a movie because it stops it from playing.

this dongle shit is the dumbest thing ever and i'm so mad they tricked me into paying $40 for a stupid accessory i shouldn't need that only lasted 2 months

i replaced the Belkin charge+listen dongle with a cheap knockoff

... which doesn't work because the 10.3 update killed it

As far as I can tell, the Belkin is the only approved device that will allow you to use your headphones and charge your phone at the same time and it only lasted a few months. Why the fuck doesn't apply make something to give you such a basic function?

Fuck apple and this ridiculous dongle nonsense
