    Does the background tapping of the NFC tag work on iPhone 7, 8, and X or just on iPhone XS and XR? I can’t find the information on Apple’s dev pages. The iPhone 7, 8 and X all have NFC hardware and can read and write but previously they couldn’t work in the background and I can’f find information on whether that has changed or not.
    Yes will work with “background tapping” on the 7,8 and X. 
    Just tested on an 8+. The NFC option is not there in Shortcuts. Seems this does not work.

    You only need 10 devices to get all these capabilities!
    I thought the exact same thing. It doesn't matter if you do something first if the rest of the device is bogus. To combine all these things in one device and in a way which makes sense. That's what a product needs.

    While I do understand why companies tend to put their logo on products with a "in your face" attitude (marketing-1d10ts), I will never understand why customers tolerate this. (Same as with most Android-phones).

    Have you not realize we are all unpaid billboards for companies. Everyone walks around with so many logo today we are all now walking billboards. There are some cloths I will not buy because the logo is all over the place. It is not like I not paying for the items and in exchange they cover me in their logo. This is how Google got the idea to make us their product and sell us to the advertisers.

    Sorry for the side rant.

    I don't have any problem with a logo put discretely onto a product. My clothes are no sports clothes, so you maybe have a logo on the back of some trousers or inside on the label. And even if you can recognize the brand, that is no issue. Issue is when a watch has ¼ of the screen estate nothing but showing a god-damn logo. Missing the point?

  • Which Apple W1-equipped headphones are right for you?

    i have no argument against the Airpods. 
    No controls is a deal breaker for me. I can't imagine how silly it must feel to say "Siri, Volume down", followed by "Siri, next track" in the subway or in the supermarket. I have absolutely no idea why Apple is so persistent on voice control. I will probably buy the X when (if) they come out and have decent sound quality.
