Re: iOS 12 Password Management

I just used this feature for the first time, and it works like a charm.
(I use 1Password for password management.)

iPhone XS Arrives

I had an easier time this year than last year following Apple's directions to transfer data. Last year I made the mistake of starting at Quick Start, but then if you want to restore from an encrypted iTunes backup (which has all your data and passwords), you just have to erase the iPhone and start o...

Re: Type new iPhone names

On the iPhone XS itself, and in iTunes, Apple just uses an ordinary uppercase S, with no space between the X and the S. The X is a Roman Numeral, but the S is English. There's debate about what the S stands for, except for "speed" in the earliest S models.

Type new iPhone names

If you want to type the new iPhone names as shown in the Apple ads, you can use SQUARED LATIN CAPITAL LETTER S Unicode U+1F142 UTF-8 F0 9F 85 82 I added this to my list of Apple-specific symbols in Keyboard Maestro, and to my favorites in Character Viewer. Of course, Apple's using a rounded rectangle!

iOS 12 Password Management

After years of steadily absorbing features like suggesting strong passwords and remembering the ones you've got, iOS 12 now gives back to password manager developers. The new AutoFill lets your third-party password manager be on tap in more places and much more easily. https://appleinsider.com/arti...

iOS 12.1 beta

Most importantly in this [iOS 12.1] beta, we are seeing the return of Group FaceTime. This was removed early on in the iOS 12 development cycle and Apple has quickly brought it back. Group FaceTime may be important for some, and at least fun for others. https://appleinsider.com/articles/18/09/18/io...

Re: iPhone Capacity

At any rate, I decided to downgrade from 256 GB to 64 GB. Worst case, my current usage will fill only half my iPhone's capacity.

Re: iPhone Capacity

I guess I don't have a lot of big apps.

That's odd: I just checked on my iPhone, and it shows 29.5, quite different from what iTunes shows. But still very small compared to the total capacity.

iPhone Capacity

I'm wondering how other SMUG iPhone users are managing the storage capacity of their iPhones. To my surprise, I have barely more than 17 GB used on my iPhone X, and that includes a long HD movie, several audiobooks and plenty of selected photos.
