USB-C!
So innovative! So brave!

If only. Forced to do so by the EU. Rumors were that they'd rather give up on a wired connection than concede, but I guess the tech wasn't up to speed on that.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I was sensing sarcasm from Dan's post.

They already gave up wired headphones, so getting rid of a charging cable makes sense, however I believe the EU, and maybe a country in South America- though I don't remember which one- require that if a piece of technology is being sold, it needs to include the ability to charge itself. So they would have to include the charging brick or wireless charger that plugs in, and they won't do that.

That was Danís sarcasm.

Then they lose out on selling cables for a fat premium.

How does their current offering (USB-C cable + iPhone 15) meet this requirement youíre suggesting is in place in those jurisdictions? I think youíre missing something.

Yup, and cables are $$ (with high margins), wireless isn't a cable they can sell. The 15 Max Pro can take some fancy video that could be saved directly to external storage (using USB-C), and also raw photos that could be piped directly to a computer for editing in realtime

I have a certain Israeli number that I sent text messages to when I had an Israeli SIM in my phone.
The Israeli carrier I was using forced me to use the local format. Now whenever I try to send an sms to that number from the US, the iPhone converts the number to a local Israeli format (starting with 0) even if I enter the entire number using international dialing format (+972...) resulting in me being unable to send text messages to that number.

Anyone have a solution for this?
Save to contacts with the American version or delete the old conversation might work

It was Brazil, not the EU.

Deleting thread didn't help. I think I might have tried saving a contact, but I will try again.

Iím not sure how USB-C is any different than the lightning cable in this regard, please explain.

Does it matter if they arenít including a standard USB brick (like the lightning cables use) or a USB-C brick?

I just decided Iíd ask this:
Which iPhone app do you think is more useless:
Shortcuts
Or Freeform

They prob are good ideas in general but really no one knows when and how to use them
nothings impossible- the word itself says Im possible

Long story short, iphone is activation locked. Do any of the 3rd party software actually work to remove it?
If it's not free shipping it's not worth it.

Can I have more than one voice activate Siri?
When I set up the Iphone (SE3) it got me to input my voice for Siri recognition and now it wont recognize DWs voice. We use it as an Ipod touch for around the house so we would really like everyone to be able to control it through Siri.

the only use case I set up for shortcuts was to send me an alert 30 minutes before sunset to daven Mincha so thatís nice. But havenít gotten deep enough to think about what other automations I should build.
My background is salesforce where I build a lot of automation (flows etc. not straight code) so Iím familiar w the tool it provides me, Iím just not sure what to make of it

So your saying it's useless to you because you can't find a use for it?

I'd argue iPhones are useless (except as a webcam ;) )

There is endless use cases. Since I use a Samsung I use their routines to turn on auto rotate for specific apps, have different amount of times the screen should stay on for, and different battery charging speed based on different factors. That's just the simple stuff. Using tasker I've made many cool automations some more useful / realistic then others.

Most recently made a way to log a call to Salesforce once a phone call ends. Gotta think of something that you find annoying or repetitive and create something. If you don't find it annoying you probably won't find it as useful.

this is the kind of post I was looking for bc itís true if I canít think of anything I need to automate I prob donít need it, which is why I was looking to see what other users came up with that might decide I need as well :)
As for log a call to salesforce, well what do you know, Iím an admin in a law firm always looking for ways to automate the work for my case staff.
Are you having the phone log into salesforce on the phone itself and sending the info there? Youíre sending an email ? Iím curious!
