    You can only change the notification sound if thatís supported in app, e.g. WhatsApp. I cannot find a way to change the default notification for apps that donít. Or have I misunderstood your post?

    Updated, but can’t see any difference, so will have to read what has changed! Annoyingly with the watch os10 I have lost favourites in the dock vs recently used & the stacked widgets don’t do things like Deezer annoyingly.

    Not sure I’m a fan of losing the upward swipe or having to long press to change watch faces. Am sure I will get used to it.

    As bad as my Mrs, phones always on silent. She’d never be my lifeline to call as I don’t think she’s ever answered on the first attempt.

    Haha, my wife is the same. Mine is always in my pocket or next to me, so never miss a call or alert.

    Somewhere in the house is an iphone7 that died whilst lost. Despite searching multiple times, it was never located. Guess we will find it when we move west to retire, perhaps.

    I do sit smug when she looses her phone and asks me to ring it. The house has to be silent whilst she hunts for the vibrations.

    My wife is the same but we use the find my phone app on the iPad to get the phone to play a sound. Even if itís on silent it still beeps away and can usually be found in a place sheís already searched.

    Has anyone else noticed you can't paste pics onto the forum from your iPhone? This is one of the basic functions I've been using forever. If you have, have you fixed it?

    Using an iPhone 14 Pro and the download stubbornly refusing to work. Update Requested tab and endless spinning of the gear thingy but nothing else. Itís been like this every time iíve attempted it and iíve been through the advice countless times, thereís enough spare storage so iím at a loss.

    Could plug it in and update via iTunes

    Alternatively go into settings and storage and see if any of the update downloaded and delete it. Then maybe a soft reset and via again.


    Really though there is no difference between the old iOS and the new one so I wouldnít be in a rush

    Updated a few days ago, on my iPhone 12 Pro. Nothing special new, battery seems to be used as before.

    Only annoying new feature is that, unless you have a poster image for each caller, the screen turns dull grey when one of these calls.

    Wish this could be edited (black screen as default rather than dull grey) but apparently will be with next software update.


    PS: also updated on my iPad Pro, where the useful difference is that the lock screen graphics can be edited, and the thick font of the clock can now be changed. For the rest, not much difference.

    Cheers W. Tried everything but the iTunes trick and no joy. Iíll just abandon it for now if the difference is minimal.

    It is so minimal, I havenít really noticed anything apart from contacts now looking a dull grey.

    Nice, will pop it on the Mac Mini tomorrow and hope for more change than the iOS update.

    That doesn't change the System Notification sound, this one seems to be hard coded at the moment, you can only change the notification sound for some apps, not the System wide one

    Apple's testing wasn't as rigorous as it ought to be. This update fixes a data transfer issue when updating to a new phone. Installing this update now as my new iPhone 15 pro will arrive next week. The battery in my current iPhone 12 Pro needs replacing and I figured I'd take the opportunity to upgrade.

    3 years old is not bad given how often (potentially) they are cycled?.

    The battery percentage is 84% and Apple recommend swapping out the battery at 82%. It gets charged every night and sometimes a top-up during the day. My work iPhone takes a hammering during the working day when working from home but is not used at all when in the office and gets charged around twice a week; it still shows 100% after two years.

    Having swapped the battery on my late father's iPhone 10 around a year ago it made a huge difference and that was down to a similar percentage. I used to do it myself but for the last few years I just get it done by Apple.

    My wife had an ageing battery on her iPhone SE2, around 70% after about 3
    Years use. I took it to our local Apple Store with no appointment and the battery was swapped within about 90 minutes and cost £70 (I think). I expected
    It to be a real faff but frankly itís a cheaper service than youíd pay for a battery change on a quality quartz watch - and much quicker. Iíll probably have a new battery in my 13pro next year rather than upgrading. Her phone is now like new and runs the latest iOS so sheís happy with it for now

    Thanks for the replies, looks like something to consider for my wifeís 12 mini which is at 85%.

    Might also give me another solution for my 14 Pro and drag out more than 2-3 years for it. Unless there is some huge tech leap that happens, I donít really want to be doing the 2yr upgrade cycle given the prices now.

    Siri British Voice 4 is an entertaining addition in iOS 17, given that the other British voices are either grating, prissy, or possibly even uptight and slightly passive-aggressive. Still hoping for Scarlet Johannson from ĎHerí really, but I suspect Apple wouldnít allow it.

    That would be a dream.

    Ha ha. Didnít know about the additional voices. British voice 3&4 crack me up. Iíve always had soft spot for Irish accents so settled on the Irish female voice 8-)

    Iíve tried them all and reckon Indian Voice 2 has the most pleasant / least annoying tone, but British Voice 4 sounds quite cheerful. Try asking it what three times one thousand one hundred and eleven is.

    Apple identifies issues causing overheating in the iPhone 15

    Hopefully the next update doesn't pull the speeds back to alleviate the heat issue's people are raising...

    My new iPhone 15 Pro arrived on Friday and was set up that evening. No overheating issues here but I have none of the identified apps installed. I haven't yet had the opportunity to try the camera but I'm sure it will be excellent; the camera lenses are huge compared to the 12 Pro. That said the old 12 pro camera was superb. I've just reset and packed the old phone ready to send on Monday as part of the Apple trade in scheme.

    Apple's new 'environmentally friendly' cases are also coming in for stick with people returning them complaining that they mark and stain far too easily.

    Surprised you traded in when a forum member would have paid the same or more!

    I did the same, my 12 Pro Max had awful battery life, but as the battery health was over 80% Apple wouldnít exchange it, by trading it in I got Ä445 off my. iPhone 15 pro Max

    Something called integrity. Whilst in absolutely mint condition the battery life was very poor and I wouldn't have felt comfortable selling it to a forum member. Even though battery health was shown at 83% when I reset it this morning, it was very poor. A new battery would have been £85 plus the cost of taking it into town, parking charges x 2, postage costs etc. All around simpler to trade it in and there's no guarantee anyone would have paid the same or more.

    I hear you, my 12Max Pro is fine (Battery 84%) just a cracked screen so Apple wouldn’t pay much so just chucked it in a drawer
