Apple iPhone Master Thread
« on: February 05, 2019, 10:41:13 PM »
I couldnít find any thread on this for some weird reason.
I am having issues on my iPhone XS when on Bluetooth, my voice to text doesnít work and WhatsApp voice notes also donít work. I also noticed that Siri doesnít work over Bluetooth. What can it be?

Please only post if you actually know about iPhones and not just going to say ďwhy do you have an iPhoneĒ

same here. btw I just heard on the Radio that theres a security Issue of someone being able to access another persons Iphone's microphone even if person doesnt accept facetime call. Might be worth doing latest update.

It was a bug that allowed someone to "see" through the camera when calling though FaceTime, even if the person didn't answer the call.

@Zevi16 Thanks for starting this thread!
My contacts got all disorganizing after recently switching phones. There are tons of duplicates and other errors. I have been using Cleaner Pro to organize but still not that simple. I  have one primary gmail account and multiple secondary accounts and realized that I have all of them set to sync contacts. Had I realized, I would have only synced the primary account. After merging all the duplicates, many of them are connected to a variety of the secondary accounts. If I unsync those accounts, will I loose these contacts? Editing and deleting contacts very time-consuming on the iPhone. You have press edit and then go scroll down to the bottom...Any tools that can help me organize them quickly? Thanks.
I am sometimes accused of overthinking things. I am still mulling over whether that accusation has merit.

Separately...whenever I start my car the music/podcast/whatever audio automatically starts playing...If I use Siri or voice to text it starts again as soon as I finish...anyone else have this issue? Is there a solution?

I can't stand the music autoplay, I try to listen to NHL games and it cuts out after 5-10 seconds and starts playing music.
Not sure if its caused by my car or the phone, as it doesn't happen in my other car.

I think I found a solution although it was a bit time-consuming...I logged into each of my secondary gmail accounts and exported the contact list. I then added those lists to my primary account which is a Gmail account. Gmail has a very efficient merge center which allowed me to merge everything together.
