    looking at the changes, and they are massive. Siri has been hugely updated, Apple Music you can search for songs with lyric stippets, big changes in privacy, etc, etc. with all of these changes can 12.0.1 be far behind. ;)

    Playing with lyric search in Apple Music, this is going to save me most of the trouble of googling lyric to find a song.

    I did the update last night, and haven't spent much time with it. I'm not an AM user(at the moment), so that's not a big deal to me.

    I'm digging that measuring tool, though. I could see that getting a lot of use.

    So far so good on older devices. I put it on my iPhone SE and iPad Mini Retina last night. It’s running really smooth with no hiccups yet. iOS11 has those early battery drain issues and iOS10 had early signal issues. Nothing here yet with 12.

    iOS 12 is a 1.43 GB update??
    OMG!
    I'll check from home tonight when I'm on a fat pipe!

    I've really been more interested in OSX 10.14 - Mojave

    As I said it is massive, I’ll be updating to a iPhone XS Max in January to take advantage of the AR stuff.

    It seems to have improved the battery life on my 7+

    It breaks compatibility with O365, which is a hard stop for many businesses. Microsoft says to give them a week to fix it.

    Yes, just realized I can now ask Siri to open Bluetooth settings. Also, just asking for it to play specific artists feels much faster (on my old 7 plus). Guess I need to try some of the other new features. The Siri shortcuts for my HomePod is intriguing. I look forward to trying that out.

    I am considering the update to the Max, as well. I guess the problem is that I am still very happy with the 7 plus, so I will wait and see how I feel after I get a chance to read more reviews. I will be getting the Apple Watch 4 sometime in the next couple of months, though. I have the Original Apple Watch and I love having so much information right on my wrist. It may be part of the reason the new phones aren't as appealing as they used to be. I spend much less time with the phone in hand.

    Brand new iPad’s are coming perhaps in October. I very much like my 7+ but in order to take advantage of the AR features I will need an XS. The Max model has a 6.5” screen but is the same physical size as my 7+. The Apple Watch is almost there as soon as they incorporate the non-invasive Glucometer they are working on I will instantly purchase one.

    The only decision with the XS Max is 256gig’s or 512gig’s storage.

    I really should update my iPad it is now 5 years old and is really getting slow.

    If you don't mind my asking, what info do you get from the Apple Watch that you find so attractive? I'm a long-time analog watch wearer, so having something on my wrist feels natural and I'm sure I could transition easily to the new gizmo. So now I'm wondering if the Apple Watch would make any sense for me (cost not a problem). Thoughts?

    I don’t yet have an Apple Watch but I am now sorely tempted because of 2 features the AW 4 has. The fall sensor, and the EKG with diagnostics. Apple in conjunction with medical universities figured out that serious falls have certain characteristics which have been programmed into the sensors on the watch. If it senses such a fall it asks if you are Ok, if no it will ask if you want call for help if yes it calls 911, and your designated emergency contact. If there is no response it call automatically. Same for the EKG. These 2 functions are going to save a lot of lives. It is things like this that keep me in the Apple ecosystem.

    Besides those things transmaster mentioned, I like the way it monitors my daily activity. The notifications, calendar, reminders, weather, email, etc. It can also control what is playing on the iPhone with Siri or pause it or send the signal to an Airplay device. Very handy :rockon:

    I have a nice analog watch that I occasionally pull out for special occasions. However, I could live without it much easier than the Apple Watch.

    What is going to be interesting is when Apple rolls out remote wireless charging. By Wireless what I mean is when you are within range, presently about 15 feet. Your iPhone, or Apple Watch will be charging it’s battery.

    I remember Rene Ritchie talking about this over a year ago. I hope it comes out soon. That would be ideal. It would definitely help with sleep tracking for those that want to use that feature, but take the watch off at night.

    This will never happen IMO. Nobody will want ridiculous magnetic fields around them in order to offer inductive charging over that sort of range. No different to sleeping on a giant coiled up extension cord or living under 275KV power lines.

    This has just been approved by the FCC. Energous is the outfit Apple is working with.It is developing this technology right now. Interestingly it could be integrated into MESH router technology so the router could also be a far field wireless charger. As for RF radiation fields with a home WiFi system at 2.4 GHz, or 5.0 GHz ??? These remote field charging systems use RF frequencies to transmit the energy which is rectified into electricity with in the device for charging.
