iOS 13.2.3 on the $1900* 512GB iPhone 11 Pro Max (“The Turd”) is driving me crazy.
Every listen to a dripping faucet? Once heard, it cannot be unheard.
That’s how macOS 13.2.3 behaves: some kind of haptic click engages for half an hour at a time, clicking randomly every 10-20 seconds.
It happens in my pocket, it happens in my hand, it happens on my hardwood desk when clicked off for the night, with a much amplified click courtesy of the desk. I had to turn The Turd off last night to get to sleep.
No, there are no incoming texts or email message—nothing.
Probably won’t happen if I take The Turd to the Apple Store.
I suppose I could waste another two hours listening to Apple Support try to brainwash me into believing it’s all my fault, or my vehicle’s fault.
I really should return The Turd, but I just keep hoping for iOS 13.2.4 to fix most of it.
I really should, especially since the cameras are little better than an iPhone 7 Plus, and still generate godawful results all too often (well, I am used to real cameras). Notwithstanding the millions who see a fully clothed emperor, the earth is not flat, sorry.
And The Turd still has no Eye AF option for plain photo or video, hello? I don’ t like a blurry face against a sharp background—yeah that’ll be great 10 years hence, when the background is minor context. Competence starts with getting the basics right, not Night Mode. All I see is BS marketing hype.
Shame on Apple—so unprofessional, so insulting to users who pay a sh*t-ton of money for a defective broken product. Except I suppose the 99%, who don’t notice how bad it is. Which means it will continue the same way, as it has for the past 7 years. It’s insane: Apple is the world’s most profitable company in history, yet Apple cannot design with judgment, or test anything adequately.
* $1900 is the approximate sum of base price + tax + AppleCare+.
