Ham:

Will the voicemail transcription work in NZ or does it require carrier support like VVM?



I'm thinking it will work without carrier support since the transcription happens on the device from what I read. Siri answer as your voicemail box so that it can get the recording. Fingers crossed!

Not liking iOS 10 so far, a bit clunky. Hope they roll out beta 2 quicker...



Have they improved the intrusive volume display when watching videos?

I like the idea of lifting the device to wake it, since the 6S the touch ID works so fast I can't tap it to see the first screen, which has News Hub feeds etc, it is annoying as I have to look at my Apple watch to read the title of the article. FML

 

On the Apple watch new faces look Ok and hopefully the new features will speed it up, writing messages with my finger could be good too, I am trying to get used to wearing it on my right hand (left handed) so I can draw etc. more accurately. So far that is a fail!

iOS 10 summary (my point of view). We have finally opened everything up to the developers! *recorded applause playback heard in auditorium. Yeah about time isn't it.

 

New features! *recorded applause playback heard in auditorium. Like ... why do bigger emojis need to be applauded??

 

Anyway, it's finally trying to keep up with Android, good on them.

 

PS i don't use android

I was hoping "Pencil" would get an update.  Things like:-

 

  • A charging port that accepts the normal cable
  • An on/off button
  • An eraser on the end
  • A left/right button

They have, there is no video overlay when changing volume at all.

Dingbatt: I do like the idea of being able to uninstall preloaded apps in iOS 10.

 

Don't save you any storage space really, only deletes user data associated with the app. The app files will remain on the device. You can "download" the app again if you want it back - but what it really does is hide/unhide the app.

Why? The default apps that can be removed only take up 150mb, minuscule amount.

Because that's 150Mb I could use for something I actually want on my phone. Until the 7 comes out, I'm running a lean ship on my 5s

Yeah it has been proven that it just removes the icon, because you can reinstall it again from the app store without any internet connection. You may as well just put the app into it's own folder.

 

I think apple have lost the plot with icons,. It is almost as though they want people to have widgets within the icons, but haven't worked out a way to do this yet, so they keep moving the widgets around to make them more accessible. A screen of icons doesn't make a great homescreen these days.
