MacDailyNews Take: It’s snappy!


  1. I guess people are still having battery issues. Even though my IP7 has calmed down, the difference in battery drain between iOS 10 and iOS 11 is notable. Any before anybody tells me to turn of this and that, screw that. I should be able to use this phone with everything on, full functionality, and not be hobbled by some programming glitch. Apple should fix it pronto.

    1. I’m having battery issues as well on my 7. Sometimes it literally drops by 1% per minute. Any sort of video playback seems especially draining. Videos now also occasionally repeat several seconds of playback, as well as sometimes going completely black. I know they’ve done a lot of work on video playback this time, so perhaps there are some corner issues they’re still sorting out.

  2. Any 6s owners out there using iOS 11 and finding it trouble free? I’m getting to the point where I may download it if most of the launch issues have been ironed out? thanks in advance

        1. absolutely. I charge only every other day. but then again, I’m not using it heavily. Navigation is the strongest battery drain. When I use it, I have to charge before and after. But that’s always been that way.

  3. Any 6s owners out there using iOS 11 and finding it trouble free? I’m getting to the point where I may download it if most of the launch issues have been ironed out? poor battery performance is what concerns me the most. Thanks in advance

    1. iOS 10 wifi and bluetooth control centre buttons definitely more logical; however, since I almost never disable those, it wasn’t a reason to hold me back from updating to iOS 11.

      1. Logical? By not performing the way you expect it to? Apple’s updates often take major steps backwards, as is the case with the Podcast app which no longer allows you to play episodes in sequence, you have to manually play each subsequent episode. For all the good Apple has done, they sure are unresponsive as hell to their users, until the anger boils over.

        1. It sure seems that way. By acting the way they do, they are unwittingly teaching users to be adversarial, — that lodging angry complaints works better than polite feedback.

          Maybe it’s the oblivious millenials they hired, or an ossified leadership, I don’t know. It may be the immense scale of their enterprise that deadens their sensitivity to users, who knows? I do know that Apple no longer knows what’s best; and they appear not to know that.

        2. Yeah. I am pissed about this. It basically destroys the functionality. I commute close to an hour each way and, previously, I could just hit advance and it would go the next episode. Not anymore. who the hell decides things lie this are “improvements”?

          1. Beyond this the entire UI is worse than before. I accidentally deleted an entire show with dozens of saved episodes because I thought I was just removing an episode. The placement of “Delte” was at the top of the list, as if deleting entire podcasts is a frequent occurrence when this option has always been at the bottom and followed by a prompt asking if you’re sure. It’s also not clear which episodes are saved and where. There used to be a “saved episodes” area, but now I just see “downloaded episodes”. Way to ruin a good app Apple. One guy on the Apple message board I subscribed to on this topic talked to 12! different people about this with no resolution, despite promises from half of them to “take ownership” of the issue.
