  • 'When I leave home' started triggering regularly whilst I’m at home

    I don't use this stuff... so I've never looked into how they work... but...
    What causes the system to know that you've left or arrived?... does it do this via GPS information?... or does it just detect whether you're on your home WiFi or off your home WiFi network?  (If the latter, it could possibly be traced to the stability of your WiFi system and your phone staying connected.)

    You asked for "any thoughts" :smiley: ... that's one that I had.

  • Apple VP Twitter profile hints at September event preparation

    pslice said:
    I enjoy every Apple event. Frustrating, though, that nothing about a 27” iMac is even hinted. My husband got the 24”, but I am hanging on for a 27” (or bigger). The iMac Pro is way beyond my needs or means. I just can’t see myself going to the 24”. It’s speedy and pretty, but not enough ports and the RAM and internal storage is less than I’d like. Sure hope to see a little bigger iMac. 
    Yep... i'm used to my 27" iMac (mid-2011 :) ) ... going to 24" would feel like a step backward (visualy). if they don't annonce a 27" (or larger) version, I imagine I'll me moving to a Mini with a non-apple monitor. Not as aesthetically pleasing, but functional. :)

  • 'iPad mini 6' rumored to use same A15 chip as 'iPhone 13' range

    Yes, I do.  It charges from a USB-C charger.
    So does the current Mini... so why do you care if it changes its port from Lightning (just like your iPhone) to USB-C? ...

    Do you think I will notice a performance increase versus my original iPad mini? /s
    That depends on how you use it.

    In Safari and Mail and Facebook? ... probably not.
    If you use it for audio and/or video manipulation... then probably so.
    Higher-end games will also take advantage of the better chip.

    But it will, of course extend the future usefulness compared to version 4... including it's ability to run the news versions of iOS.
