    What I hate about iOS 11...

    Ignore my last post above. After a little research that I should have done first, my post is in error. taping the wifi symbol only disconnects the phone from the network it is currently connected to, it does not turn off WiFi. Same for Bluetooth.

    What I hate about iOS 11...

    I'm not sure why Bluetooth or Wi-Fi cannot be turned off in the control center. The function is there on my iPhone 7 with iOS 11.1.2. Top left corner shows Airplane Mode, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on/off toggles

    Got the otter box defender case

    Agreed, I’ve been using the Defender since my first iPhone 4 and will not use any other case.

    Incompatible app update

    That did the trick. I didn’t even think of that because I don’t remember ever downloading the app onto the iPad. It took a little searching to find it. I deleted it and all is good. I was acting as a beta tester for iOS 11 on my iPhone7 and that may have been how the app ended up on my iPad as...

    Incompatible app update

    If the app isn't compatible with my iPad 3 why is even listed as an available update and how do I get rid of the listing?

    Which new iPhone are you going to get?

    My iPhone 7 is still serving my needs quite well. I can’t argue that the technical advances of the 8 or the X aren’t substantial vs. my 7 but right now I cannot justify the expense of a new phone just for a few technological geegaws I really don’t need to have. Maybe next year after I sell my...

    The pets of eiC

    Our Teenie left us a few years ago but was always a delight to have around in spite of her constant impish behavior. We never knew what she would get into next, in this case it was my Mother-in-Law's ash tray.

    iTunes 12.6.3 Now Available with Apps and Ringtones Syncing Restored

    I couldn't agree more. Apple could have at least given us a separate method of accessing the App Store via computer rather than having to do it only from the small screen on the phone. That would have been much more equitable than eliminating computer access entirely.

    iTunes 12.6.3 Now Available with Apps and Ringtones Syncing Restored

    I wonder what the reasoning was for removing that functionality in the first place? I will miss using iTunes to shop for an app as it is definitely a lot easier looking for and researching an app on my computer than on the small screen of my phone. I'm guessing that if I go through all the...

    iTunes 12.6.3 Now Available with Apps and Ringtones Syncing Restored

    I wonder if versions beyond 12.7.0.166 will re-incorporate the app store as well.

    Can't print from iphone 7 after update to ios11

    Just bought an Epson EcoTank printer, no more running out of ink problems and my phone and iPad print to it easily to boot.

    My thoughts on the new devices

    The increased cost of the new iPhones vs. new features in any of them keeps me from being able to justify replacing a perfectly good I phone 7. Apple’s new whiz-bang phone simply isn’t anything all that special to me.

    Maps stopped working in iOS GM beta

    I have an iPhone 7 running the latest beta version of iOS11. I’ve come up with an issue concerning that beta. On the EIC website on the page that we would go to in order to select the particular forum we are interested in, the blue graphic of two blue speech bubbles to the left of the forum...

    Maps stopped working in iOS GM beta

    Tried the first two suggestions but not the Reset All Settings, to no avail. A little later I absentmindedly tapped on an address in a contact's information and the Maps App came up, displayed the proper location for the address requested and has been working properly ever since. I'm in the...

    Maps stopped working in iOS GM beta

    So I downloaded and installed the iOS11 GM onto my iPhone 7 and find that Apple Maps is no longer working. When I tap on the Maps icon the screen goes white for something less than a second and then it reverts back to the screen where the Maps icon is located. I tried a hard reset but that...
