Frustrating problem with Apple’s iOS 12 Do Not Disturb Notifications

DND_iOS12

iOS 12 Do Not Disturb notification reappears over and over on the lock screen—even after it’s been cleared

Pretty soon we will need an app just remove DO NOT DISTURB lock screen notifications

A great feature already present on the iPhone and iPad with iOS 11 is Do Not Disturb.  And in iOS 12, DND gets improved with additional scheduling modes. These modes are especially useful when you need to use Do Not Disturb  temporarily—an hour meeting  for example.  Do Not Disturb itself is all well and dandy except for the notifications that reappear on the lock screen whenever DND is enabled.  I don’t like a cluttered lock screen so it would be nice to be able to remove the DND notifications. I simply haven’t been able to find a way to make them go away for good.

In iOS 12, if DND is on/enabled, a notification will remind the user–just in case you forgot you enabled it I suppose.  One time is good.  But when you clear it by swiping left, the notification will reappear again on the lock screen sometime later (I have yet to determine what triggers it’s return). But I do wish for a way to disable/remove DND notifications altogether in iOS 12. When I find one, I will be sure to update this post.

If you do I would love your help!

 

So what are your thoughts about the recent iOS 12 release, and specifically the reoccurring DND notifications?  Please comment below.

More options removed: Apple Takes Away Option for Touch ID on iPhone X

iphone-x-2745628_1920

Why would Apple take away the option for Touch ID on the iPhone X when Touch ID was working quite well before? In fact, I think it’s a mistake on their part.  It’s great when a company decides to enhance their products by making them better.  But it’s completely unacceptable when a company (Apple in this case) decides to remove proven features from their product in order to promote another idea.  (This practice is common in gaming and it stinks for the consumer.  Think SimCity 2013 or the Sims 3 to Sims 4. )

So why did Apple choose to replace touch ID with face ID? They might have many  excuses including “Face ID is the future of technology” but we know their reasoning really boils down to one main goal:  Control.

Less Options More Control

Apple, like Google and Microsoft want control over us the consumer.  These big mega technology companies want to control our lives and do I dare say, create our lives.  If a company can control our media, content and the devices we use, it’s fair game in their view for how they implement them into our lives.  Doubt this?  Ever noticed how they control the default news sources we see on our devices?  (Yes, left leaning news sources are the norm on Microsoft, Google and Apple.)

Hey Apple, What Happened to Consumer First?

Of course if control weren’t their top priority we would see them keep great ideas from the past intact (no matter their age) but most importantly they would put the consumer first, always give us options and stop cramming their views down our throat.

Apple could have implemented touch ID into their new iPhone X.  But since they want to control and shape how people use their device they removed it completely.  In the case of whether or not Apple decides on bringing back touch ID to their new iPhones, I will be watching to see how consumer friendly they choose to be.

What do you think? Should Touch ID be incorporated along side Face id into the new iPhone X?  Do you think Apple will bring back Touch ID?

Apple iOS 11.1 battery life drain

apple-1867991_1920

Apple’s iOS 11.1 drains battery faster than you can say dead battery. Okay so a bit of an exaggeration perhaps but as many iPhone users have experienced, iOS 11.1 shortens battery life significantly among other things.

On my iPhone 5s for example even when using low power mode I find a 20% battery drop in just a few hours on standby! In my opinion this is unacceptable especially when previous iOS versions lasted much longer.  Maybe the culprit is iOS 11’s new Wi Fi auto on feature.  Whatever is causing this battery drain it’s annoying and I hope Apple fixes it soon.

iOS 11.1 showing strange bright border on iPhone 5s

iphone_border

I haven’t seen it before updating to iOS 11.1 but it’s now showing up–a whitish bright border appearing in apps with white backgrounds such as Notes or Calendar.  In addition to a bright border on my iPhone, the phone’s battery life as seen a significant drop since updating to iOS 11.1.  I hope Apple fixes these issues, after all the year is 2017.

It should be noted, this strange border has not appeared on my iPad updated with iOS 11.1.

Do you have the bright border appearing on your iPhone or iPad?

Let me know in the comments below.

The strange behavior and missing features of iOS 11

The strange behavior and missing features of iOS 11

I like my iPhone and iPad but between strange behavior and missing features in Apple’s new update to iOS 11 I have become increasingly frustrated with it.

Strange bright border around face of iPhone

When viewing any app or picture with a white background, my iPhone shows an odd inexplicable bright whitish border around the edge of the screen.  This was not seen prior to iOS 11.1 and does appear in any screenshots taken with the phone but appears to be an issue with the phone itself.  Any thoughts?  (below are some screenshots taken with my iPad of my iPhone 5s)

 

Sticking Portrait Orientation even when the feature is not locked?

I may or may not be one of the few people experiencing this issue but I have noticed when I check my email Portrait Orientation sticking to a wide position even when I hold the phone upright in iOS 11.  I am forced to shake or rotate the phone a couple of times to get it “unstuck”.  To completely remedy this “sticking” of auto rotation I have to now use the portrait orientation lock feature when viewing emails or browsing the web to keep it from sticking in the wrong position.  Pre-Locking the position is fine but it adds more steps when viewing a video should I want to rotate the view of the picture on the fly.

Control Center Wi-Fi setting appears to have a mind of its own

Another thing I have encountered in iOS 11 which I did not encounter in previous OS versions, is Wi-Fi automatically turning itself on after turning it off from the control center. This behavior never occurred in iOS 10.  Of course, I go into settings to permanently turn off Wi-Fi but then it will won’t find any hot-spots at all.  Isn’t the purpose of Control Center to allow convenient access to various phone settings such as Wi-Fi?  I think so but for whatever reason, Apple decided to change the functionality of Wi-Fi in the Control Center.

App Store Wish List Missing From iOS 11

Lastly, if you have ever wanted to buy an App from the App store and save it to your wish list, you can’t anymore. Again, for whatever reason, the wish list feature has been removed in iOS 11.  Thank you Apple.  Why not keep it when it such a useful feature in iOS 10?

Still no iPad Calculator

Honorable Mention:

This isn’t necessarily simply an issue with iOS 11 but still having no built-in calculator on the iPad is also odd since the iPhone has one built in. Maybe the code to add a calculator to the iPad (without using a third-party app) is more complicated than we realize.

Dangerous Trend: Wi-fi Apparently Turning itself ON in iOS 11

 

ios_11_wifi_override

Wi-fi has a mind of its own in iOS 11

Is Wifi turning on by itself (overriding user input) in iOS 11?  In my experience it is.  From the Control Center, when I toggle Wi-fi off it disconnects only temporarily before coming on hours later.  Why this behavior?  In iOS 10 this did not occur.  OFF meant wi-fi was off and ON meant it was ON.  So what is Apple doing?  Why have they apparently decided to override user settings?  If this is truly the case, in my view it is a dangerous trend.

Apple’s Dangerous Trend

If Wi-fi settings are changed, what else is Apple changing on your device without you knowing?  For example, if you turn location detection OFF, will your phone turn it back on later?  I hope not.  Or what about other privacy settings? For now, the Wi-fi toggle found in Control Center in iOS 11 is the only setting I have found that is being changed  automatically (overridden).

What has been your experience with iOS 11?  Feel free to comment below.
