Since it’s Friday and I’m sitting here doing about a million emails and other various tedious work, and because it has been several weeks since my last Thread, I thought I’d send one out to see if folks have questions about the new iPhone (I have the iPhone 11 Pro Max) or new Apple Watch (I have the Titanium Edition Apple Watch Series 5). Go ahead, distract me :)
What recipe are you going to use on your iPhone to make lunch for your kid tomorrow?
Do you think it still matters to have the latest and greatest Apple devices (ie overpriced titanium Apple Watch)? Are the differences between models getting smaller and smaller, and now it’s mostly blind consumerism, that is harmful to us and our planet?
Now that there’s an always on display, can you think of anything missing on the new watch in your opinion. I find it a struggle to imagine what they might have in the pipeline, other than the holy grail non-invasive blood sugar sensor.
Also, I think I could imagine a time where I’m carrying an IPad and a Watch and no iPhone. I’d love to read a long form post of your thoughts on that idea. ;)
Do you use a sleep tracking app? If so what do you recommend? And what’s your charging strategy for getting the battery through the day and night?
Where are you taking your iPhone for the Thanksgiving holiday?
Is the camera the best new feature of the iPhone 11 Pro
+1: What is your favorite face and complications set up?
What's your favorite watch face, or do you use several? I switch between two infographs, loaded with complications.
Thoughts on battery life for Watch? I love the always on display but battery life seems much shorter than for Series 4 Watch despite what I think is the same claimed life on Apple specs page.
Hi MG. How has the battery life been with your series 5? Thanks and have a good weekend!
Chrome or Safari?
If your phone is close to your Watch while it's on your wrist (say, near your keyboard), do you get Message notifications? I find that my phone doesn't buzz if they are close together...and sometimes BOTH do not buzz.
Is there really any reason to buy the Apple Watch, Titanium or otherwise??? I'm trying to get even less distracted, and aside from logging my cycling miles, it seems like it will be just another distraction (see what I did there?)
How is the Taptic Engine on the titanium edition? I’ve only ever had stainless steel but have heard aluminium has a much stronger tap, especially in early generations.
Titanium better than the steel? I have the 2 in steel and love it. It’s just so slow now.
How is the always on Apple Watch screen in everyday use? Is it truly an improvement?
What app can't you live without on the iPhone that isn't (yet) on Apple Watch?
How does the weight feel? I run a lot with my aluminum 4 and wondering if the bump up to titanium will be hugely noticeable. I’ve always found stainless steel to be too heavy.
Heard anything about a titanium link bracelet? Looks a bit off with the stainless steel bracelet.
On the new Watch: If you get buzzed for a notification while your wrist is "away", when you move your wrist to read the notification, will it be there already or will it take some time to appear? (I know that it won't display when your wrist is facing away)
Hey, thanks for doing this! Do you know if the Apple Watch Series 5 has passive NFC capabilities like the iPhones XS, 11, and 11 Pro? I cannot find the answer anywhere! Thanks!
