iOS 13.2.3: Random Haptic Clicks Drive Me Nuts on iPhone 11 Pro Max

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.

With all the other problems in iOS 13, it seems that Apple Core Rot has once again shoveled steaming heaps of dung out the door—on my $1900* phone.

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+.
