Nick Clegg was the Deputy Prime Minister of the UK, elected on the back of him promising not to increase tuition fees for university students, and then voting FOR an increase once elected. He knows what double standards are as he’s an expert in them. Well placed working for Facebook or whatever they’re called these days.
Terrible.I’ve had every iPhone. Smashed my iPhone 11 Pro Max display and Apple repair quoted as £316.44.Replaced it myself with a display from replace base for £99 however True Tone was disabled as a by product of this.
This year, for the first time ever, I have forked out for Apple Care + with theft loss with my iPhone 13 Pro Max for £239. If I need a new display it will be £25. This is cheaper than a display repair of £316.44.They have me over a barrel, my pants are down and I’m taking it, and they know it.I’m going to hold on to this device for many years now. Gone are the days of me upgrading every year.
My AirTag has disappeared. I’ve taken the battery out and as advised on the apple website disconnected and reconnected the battery multiple times until it reset (and made a different sound). It now however won’t reconnect. I’ve just ordered a new battery to see if it’s low on power. Disappointing it hasn’t lasted anywhere near one year.
In the keynote Apple said they have shipped 2 Billion chargers so far, so by not shipping a charger will reduce the carbon footprint - fair enough, most people have standard USB chargers at home anyway, but by shipping new phones only with a USB-C cable, those ubiquitous chargers aren’t USB-C so $$$$ for Apple selling a USB-C charger with a percentage of purchases (and there goes the so called carbon footprint 🤔).
CheeseFreeze said:In a world where sustainability is a factor, this feels like a design failure, although I obviously understand a cluncy ‘default’ connector isn’t an option.Making this non-removable is terrible in professional settings demanding unique setups, and requiring Apple to fix issues with a tool like that feels completely backwards.I’m not an expert, but why couldn’t this be powered USB-C?The power transformer is situated inside the unit, and requires mains power.USB-C is low voltage, and not rated anywhere near the 120 Volts (or 240 Volts in Europe) that comes out of a mains power socket unfortunately.
