    Apple maps butt of a joke? I've been an Android user for the last 10 years and everytime I use a mates Apple maps, I am so surprised how much better it is than Google maps. Google maps sucks.

    Hi Sir, very informative channel of yours.
    Just wanted to ask one issue which I am facing in whatsapp after updating to ios 15.
    Earlier we would be able to read multiple msgs from same person on the lock screen itself (provided previews are off) as there was little CROSS icon (X) on each msg so by clicking it we can read the msg before that.
    But as I moved to ios15 now suppose some person sends me 4 msgs and If i want to read it by not actually open WhatsApp then there is some isse as I only can read his kast msg only as there is not cross button.
    Please suggest sir.

    Things i would like in my ios update- Iphone 12 ProMax
    The dialer interface is an absolute mess..the ratio of the numbers to the screen is shady, the number you type is squished to the top right hemisphere between the phone service provider and the disproportionate blue text 'Add Number' . Then you have a whole 1 and half finger breath spacing to the numbers freaking cant type a number using your thumb unless you are a Philistine giant. solution! push all the dialer functions down to make it easier for the user to make a call... whats the use of the 2 finger breaths distance between the green caller button and the contacts button at the bottom? Such a crappy dialer.
    Dialer app- Add cursor correct so that i do not have to re-write the whole number again every time you get it wrong.
    Dialer app-the backward gesture to delete number is lame and crap..please just introduce a back/delete button on the dialer
    Dialer app- Where the fuck is the the hold button when you picking a new call..Why are the end or receive a call butttons when on another call so literary have to work on precision coz you might press the wrong button.
    In summary the dialer app is crap.
    Info button against phone numbers- This is too small, i have a pro max and i still miss the buttons, and with my big fingers i keep missing ok with tapping to call but please add swipe to message.
    The dialer app lacks creativity and innovation.
    Screen edges-Absolutely insensitive wen using certain apps, especially the top left corner ,you keep pressing, applying saliva on your finger for the touch to effect..absolute annoyance.
    Touch sensitivity is crap compared to samsung galaxy..s8 plus..terrible how the scree feels like some hollow plastic
    You can not open multiple files from the same multiple PDF files, multiple Doc what the hell?
    Dual Messenger- Some of us have 2 phone numbers for convenience, we would like dual messaging abilities without having to use 3rd party apps to handle our data in regards to dual messaging. FYI Samsung has an excellent dual messaging function.
    Alarm Clock- This phone is absolutely not useful if you visual impairment, the alarm interface is crappiest it lacks basic creativity...trying to set an alarm is like trying to steer titanic away from an iceberg..the buttons needs some magnifying..the clock adjust functions drop from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen way far below you therefore have to adjust the device fully just to freaking set an alarm. Then the clock adjusting is so miniature to the point you dont want to do it at all...annoying
    App library- please introduce a function to disable the app library
    The top drop down control centres- They may be ok for those who do not know better...but sincerely speaking..can we have time and and date in both drop down control centres....
    Calculator- is Worse--no history, no copy and paste function..or is the screen just insensitive?
    There is just so much i could say but let me walk away.

    The feature you mentioned about being able to put the time in the alarm was introduced before iOS 15. I'm running iOS 14.1 on my phone and I have this feature. I think it arrived on iOS 14 or shortly thereafter.

    Apple needs to bring in scheduled text messages like Samsung has. It was useful for sending late night texts at 3am but it gets sent at the time you schedule it

      This can be done in the shortcuts app under automation. Just create a personal automation for time of day and it will schedule whatever message you need. Only downside is there is no “only send once” option so you’ll have to delete it after if you’re only sending one day.

    Focus is a pain to set up. I wanted to do "work" and it didn't just turn of SM notifications, it wanted specific apps to allow etc. I think it would be good if it just turned off all SM notifications by default and then let me select the ones I want to opt in the rare one that would work. The do not disturb should be like it used to for night mode and just allow favorite people texts and calls come through and should not force me to select them one by one when I already have them marked as favorites. The messed it up.
