Discussion Alright this is not a good UX Design

Post image
Upvotes

Who approved this design at apple ?

  1. The album art is out of alignment with the player
  2. I can’t see the notifications about the charge on my credit card because of the “new and improved” notifications. (can’t scroll either )
  3. Most of the elements on the lock screen are all over the place.

Hope they improve this crappy design process in future version.

Support Apps randomly categorized under "Other" in app library

2 Upvotes

I woke up this morning to find that most of my apps in the app library had suddenly been recategorized under Other. Now, I'm not a big fan of the app library to begin with, but this made it somehow worse. Any way to fix this?

Support iMessage when selecting share

Upvotes

When I click share in any app or web page ( like sharing a photo) and select a contact it shows as green (as if it will send a text). If I delete the name in the message header and select that contact from my address book (contacts) it turns blue. Any ideas?

I just noticed that the #images app used for gifs on iMessage is no longer on my iPhone but still shows up on my iPad. Does anyone now if they did away with the app on iPhone or how to get it back?

Support How to see all photos that aren’t added to an album?

1 Upvotes

I’ve been organizing all my photos into albums as I have thousands. I would like to see all photos that I may have missed that are not already added to an album, that way I can delete them or put them in an album as needed.

Is this possible with recent updates

Discussion Is it a good idea to use "hide my email" aliases for everything (web services, etc.)?

1 Upvotes

So I just bought my first iPhone couple weeks ago, and the last thing I’m migrating from Google is gmail. I love the "hide my email" service as it’s often a pain to unsubscribe/etc. from services/newsletters and such. This is brilliant.

I’m planning to use these email addresses as most as I can, but I’m wondering if it wouldn’t be a good idea in some cases. For example, let’s say I wanna change my Amazon account email address to one of these. Who knows, maybe in 10 years I’m gonna close my account and absolutely do not want to have a billion emails from that company asking me to reactivate my account. But the problem with that is if something happens to that email address—for some reason it gets deleted, Apple decides to remove that feature, or something else—then I’ll be unable to access my account in the future.

So I’m just bouncing ideas here. Would it be a mistake to migrate to these "hidden" addresses for everything? I’m still new to the Apple ecosystem and, even though I absolutely love it, I know a lot of companies/web services have the frustrating habit of dropping product functionality they don’t consider useful anymore over time. Most of the time I can deal with it, but this becomes more of a problem if it means I could lose access to my online accounts.

Support Is it possible to create a secondary backup of iMessages?

1 Upvotes

I want to archive conversations I had with a loved one who is no longer with us.

I know iCloud backs up iMessages, but is there also a way (officially or not) to possibly convert the dialogue into a readable text file?

Also, are messages stored indefinitely or do they delete after a certain time? That’s my ultimate concern, is that the conversations will somehow be lost forever at some point through no fault of my own.

Thanks for any insight!

Support App Store- barely any apps anymore?

0 Upvotes

Just a few months ago I found a great app by a small developer- it was just a set of photo filters with some other functionality like date stamps. It was a paid app but only cost 99 cents. There were dozens of apps like this to choose from in the app store.

Today I tried searching the same keywords that got me to that app ("photos retro filters date stamp") and I received... 5 results. FIVE. In the entire app store. FIVE. None were by small devs- four were huge apps with a billion features and of course in-app purchases, and the fifth was $8.99

What the heck??? Where are all of the apps made by small developers? Why am I only getting five search results for such basic keywords? Is this a problem on my side, or a problem of the App Store?

Support Battery health… stuck?

0 Upvotes

So around September (11 months after purchase) my battery health was at 88% on my iPhone 12 Mini. 5 months later it is STILL at 88%!

Is something wrong here? I didn’t change my usage at all, and even worse, my phone is often pegged at 100% for hours because I use it as a hotspot over USB. The battery life seems normal and fine so I don’t know if this is something I should be worried about.

Support Backup/Transfer iMessage history for 1 contact?

1 Upvotes

So my wife accidentally delete the iMessages for one of her contacts right after she switched to a new phone and wants to know how to move all the messages from the old phone to the new phone. Is there a selective backup software/transfer software option that I can use instead of erasing the new phone and doing a whole restore procedure?

Support BeWeather App Missing From App Store

0 Upvotes

I recently got the BeWeather app at the recommendation of some Reddit users and have been liking it! I was recommending it to my coworker when I found out that he couldn't download it from the App Store or even find it. When I tried to go to my Purchases section in the App Store and tap on BeWeather, this screenshot is what I saw. Has this app been deleted? Is there anyone with more information about this? The website is still up http://www.beweatherapp.com/ (albeit with a Copyright year of 2015).

I have followed the guides. Activated storage on ICloud both on phone and computer. Still doesn't work.

Anyone may know why? IOS 16, everything should be fine and dandy, I believe.

Thanks
