    The 1st gen Pros are "good" ANC, but not a match for my over the ear Sonys or a set of Bose. Having worn them on a commute more than occasionally, I'm guessing you'll definitely have background noise, but it'll be "fine". Just won't be the dead silence you get from a pair of ANC full headphones.

    Just got my 14 pro max. My god was a beautiful monolith. While my X is still running fine, the 14 pro is definitely faster, and the 120hz screen is noticeably smoother. Certainly a nice upgrade. I wonder what phones will be like in around 4-5 years when I upgrade again. Will I have a folding iphone then?

    Folding iPhones are only going to be a thing if/when Samsung stops being a dick about screens and screen prices, someone else comes up with a viable design, or Apple bites the bullet and barges into that market segment too.

    I'm sure there are folding screen iPhones in Apple R&D and I'm pretty sure when it happens it won't be like any other folding device and that people won't like it.

    Death and taxes and people hating Apple choices that become standard.

    Oh I’m also pretty sure they’re working on the technology. But it’s not going anywhere public until something in the small screen wholesale market changes.

    If they can pull off the roll-out screens from Earth: Final Conflict when they do, then all the better.

    Is there some sort of tolerance building most people have to do for ANC?

    I get nauseous from using it for more than 15 minutes. Especially when I take one out before the other, I feel like my eyes and ears overload. It's so bizarre.

    Can’t say I’ve experienced that myself but it is more or less literally cutting out a primary sense so… maybe try switching to transparency when you’re putting them in or taking them out, and go for the full cancellation once you’ve wearing them? Make the transition a bit less sudden.

    There's some sort of 'suction'/'pressure' sensation that can happen, yeah; something about it, another page, some discussion on reddit.

    I had that with the bose's I have at maximum cancellation, but winding it back to about halfway seems to be enough to cut out plenty of background noise without the really isolating/weird feeling.

    yeah, it's something that definitely happens to some people. There's a thing with the frequencies that they use to cancel the noise out that doesn't jive with some people's ears.

    Is there anything new and fancy with the charging cable that comes with the Series 8? Read something about faster charging. Just wondering if I should replace the one I have in the bedroom from my Series 5.

    The USB-C based charger that was introduced with the series 7 charges the watched 30% faster, at least when the watch is closer to dead. Inthink the official verbiage is 0-50% in 30 minutes. If that charger is one where you're often putting the watch on it for 30 minutes and wanting as much charge as possible, then yes. If the primary use case is charging overnight then it really doesn't matter if the older charger is slower.

    I got an early XMas gift of an IPad Air (5th gen)

    It’s set up and everything but it’s a little different in use than the 2018 5th gen iPad it’s replacing

    For one thing no home button but I figured that out

    Anything I should know about this thing that may not be obvious

    Edit: based on my unofficial benchmark of “how fast does Civ6 load” thing is insanely fast. Old IPad would take over a minute and this thing loads it in ~15 seconds

    Yeah, it has an M1 in it. Same chip that powers the 1st generation MacBook Air and the 2021 iPad Pro. My iPad has never once felt slow.

    It's a beast of a processor that is currently very underutilized on most iPad workflows.

    The Continuity Camera is pretty great, except now it's defaulting to using my iPhone as my microphone every time I connect my MacBook to my thunderbolt dock and I need to change it back to using my actual microphone every single time.

    What's the cheapest thing I can buy that will give me access to current macos? I really just want imessage on desktop and a web browser for email & etc. An older refurbished mac mini?

    edit: didn't realize there was a macos thread, gonna cross post over there but keeping this one as that thread doesn't seem super active.

    Yeah, either a new or used Mac Mini. I have the baseline M1 Mac Mini for when I don't want to or need to use my gaming PC. It's a great little machine.

    I’d like to meet the apple engineer who decided that AirPods should switch from an active phone call on your phone to some sound effect on your laptop or iPad and tell that person they’re an idiot.

    can you feel the struggle within?

    It's stopped for now, but I had a period where it was apparently very important to switch from the music I was listening to on my Mac to the iPhone so I could hear the lock sound.

    Lol

    I just turned off the auto switching and will do things manually. Losing audio during the few times I’m actually using my phone as a phone is too risky.

    I’ve had an Apple Watch Ultra for about a month now and I really like it (after having a 2 and a 6). The trail loop is an exceptional strap as well.

    That’s all. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.

    The dramatic improvement in battery life from the watch, and the extra button (which I set to be the flashlight) have made this my favorite out of all the watches.

    It's a big watch, but not overly so, at least on a larger person.

    If I hadn't just gotten a 7 I'd be all over the ultra. I look forward to seeing the improvements by the time the ultra 3 comes out.

    Hey folks, is there a real and safe way to control my iPhone from PC? I googled around a bit but I have no way of knowing what's real and what's malware.

    Short version is “no” - you can get view access with things like teamviewer but Apple’s security model just won’t let you have remote control, for a number of reasons.

    So I got a phone holder for my desk with MagSafe. This means the phone will pretty much sit on a charger for most of the day, since I have another one by my bed.

    Phones are smart enough about battery charging strategies nowadays, right? Just so I don't get battery issues with it constantly sitting on a charger.

    Yes you don’t need to worry about it.

    Yeah, the only thing you'll need to worry about is the absolutely unavoidable and unkillable (srsly if someone knows how TELL ME) notification chime when it tells you it's going to do "smart charging" and time itself to be done by X time for battery health. Which is good.

    It's not good when it goes off at 2:30 AM next to the bed. At volume.

    Yeah, I was going to mention it. You can also set it to "green charging" where it will hold off drawing power if it can until times when power rates are lowest.

    I got those charging updates on my old phone, but they never made a sound. And I haven't seen them on my new phone. I looked briefly at Battery and Notifications but I can't seem to find anything relaying to it.

    You would think that! Mine's in "Sleep", which should make it shut the hell up, but no. "Ding".

    The WatchOS 10 beta fixed one of my major annoyances -- I frequently use Siri by means of "wake me up in X minutes" to take a nap (what can I say, naps are nice), and this results in a new alarm being added every time, that I then have to manually remove.

    I eventually gave up on that and just let them pile up. But in watchOS 10 that same command results in a countdown timer, not an alarm.

    I use it that way, as well, but I’ve been saying “set a timer for X minutes”.
