    Yep. OCR was added to photos last Fall. It’s a great feature. I use it a fair bit.

    I really hope that, if nothing else, iOS 16 and etc. this fall fix the Cloud tabs syncing problems. The new cloud tabs and groups functionality has been buggy and broken since release. Something’s changed recently — it feels like an attempt to fix the problems, but it’s mainly just changed the...

    A quick recommendation for Noir app. It adds a dark mode to safari on iPad and iPhone. It follows the system’s dark mode settings so it can happen automatically at night. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/noir-dark-mode-for-safari/id1581140954

    Yeah, both methods of SOS calling have been there for a while, I believe. https://www.imore.com/how-set-and-use-emergency-sos-your-iphone Not sure what exactly is new in the setup. Mac Rumors muddled that up.

    That’s a bummer. :) I didn’t read the article on the nuances, more interested in sharing a quick “how to“ with friends. That’s an iOS 15 feature, asking if it should mute or allow “time sensitive” notifications like Messages when you’re in a Focus mode. I got a bunch of those early on but then...

    Ridiculous bids on a throw away gadget: smells like money laundering.

    Which release of what? All the updates on everything this Fall have been stable, AFAIK.

    https://daringfireball.net/linked/2021/10/06/ipad-weather This is a thing. I know it is because my wife asked me what was wrong with her iPad’s weather app when she tapped the widget and landed at weather-dot-com.

    Having resolved the cloud tabs and (more or less) the air drop problems, everything is working well. I’m cautiously optimistic that Safari’s cloud tab syncing is actually working better, faster, more reliably than it did in iOS 14.’ I like Tab Groups. They take more work, but they’re helpful...

    This seems to be fixing the AirDrop problem. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/250762934

    So, I did it again, but skipping the restart step. Again, the 13 appeared in the iPad Safari tabs. But it had outdated tabs listed. I deleted them in the Safari interface. And the phone vanished from the listing. So, if nothing else, maybe this is a way to get rid of the iPhone 8 entries. I...

    And AirDrop is broken with the new iPhone. It doesn’t recognize devices and devices don’t recognize it.

    I found and tried the Apple Support process. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203519 My iPhone 13 appeared in my iPad’s iClod Tabs for literally about a minute afterwards, and then vanished again. I’ve got to find time to call Apple. Something’s wrong. (I’m ready to reset my iPhone and...

    Oh, sorry. You're asking about iPad. No, the address bar remains at the top there.

    And...it's gone. iPhone 13 no longer listed in my Cloud Tabs...subsequent to 15.0.1 update? I wish iCloud wasn't completely opaque. I want some error codes and debugging features and "refresh" buttons to mash!

    A week later, my new iPhone finally shows up in Safari’s iCloud Tabs. Whew! I use that all the time! Now waiting for my purged and deleted iPhone 8+ to get removed from iCloud Tabs! :)

    Thanks @Ronald Epstein! Instead of turning it off, I added my regular parking location near the park as an exclusion location. Will try it out this weekend. :)

    This was happening this weekend: I leave my iPhone in my car when I go into the park for Saturday exercise. And every ~45 minutes my Watch told me I left my iPhone behind. How do I turn this off?

    iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 and watchOS 8 and macOS whatever

    It’s sites like HTF that made me turn it off. When it picks a really strong, saturated color, and then that color wildly changes as I change tabs…eesh!! I like Tab Groups I like address bar at the bottom (iPhone) I like Extensions Hate the tabs UI on iPad. Truly terrible. Tremendous evidence...

    Thanks. Everything working now. Watch didn’t have third-party apps installed. I installed my apps. That fixed the missing complications. Then I did some more setup needed to get syncing between iPhone apps and Watch apps and Health apps to get the whole health ecosystem working again. I think...

    iCloud Tabs are moved. You now have to create a new tab. All the various top bookmarks, and frequently used, and icloud tabs are in that new tab page. I've also got a syncing problem -- no iPhone tabs on iMac and iPad and no iPad tabs on iPhone. Thats a recurring problem with iCloud for me...

    Did Safari iCloud Tabs go away with the new systems? That's completely vanished from all devices since updating. I don't know if this a typical Apple quirk or I have change how I sync and access open tabs across devices.

    Also, at first glance, I'm a big fan of the "Just for You" features, seeing links and photos from Messages show up in Safari and Photos. I don't like how the for-you links are in different UI elements on iPad (sensible, easy to find) and iPhone (non-sensible and harder to find).
