  1. Is anyone having trouble with their alarm volume on iOS 13? All of a sudden the alarm volume is low even with the master volume at 100% and the silent off. Frustrating now.

    Strange how the Apple Card has assigned my United flight as food instead of travel. There’s no way to change that right?

    Apple Music letting you know a song is already in a playlist in iOS13 is so simple but so good.

    Yeah, I’ve been having a lot of charge/connection issues with mine. They were fantastic at first but became terribly inconsistent. Went back to using my AirPods all the time.

    I've noticed the same thing happening to mine. Now I make sure I hear the "click" of the buds hitting the pins and when I get into the car to drive to the gym I double check to make sure they're connected so if they weren't, by the time I get there they'll at least have the 15 fast charge during the drive

    It's way too late, or much too early Prestigious

    I haven’t had any trouble with my Powerbeats Pros. Been using them since the beginning of July every Monday thru Friday on the train and when I run. Definitely saddened to hear people having problems with them. Now I’m hoping mine won’t shit the bed.

    Unsolicited product recommendation - I went with the Jabra Elite Active buds instead of the Powerbeats Pro. Had them since December, haven't had battery/charging issues and the noise isolation is fantastic. They're also cheaper, I think I paid like $170?

    hoping they’ll replace them at the apple store

    I don’t know any of the artists on my New Music Playlist but they are perfect for my roof right now.

    About the last feature I still relied on iTunes for, really happy it is finally making its way over to iOS.

  18. Dark Noise Review: Ambient Noise Never Looked So Good - MacStories
    An ambient noise app’s most important job is providing a variety of sounds that can evoke a soothing sense of calm, and offer environment control. The App Store is full of apps that accomplish this purpose, and a new one’s being added to that roster today: Dark Noise, from developer and designer Charlie Chapman.

    One chief advantage of Dark Noise over its competition is that out of the gate it’s the best of iOS citizens. Nearly every relevant iOS technology that Apple puts at developers’ disposal has been implemented in Dark Noise: Siri shortcuts, haptic feedback, alternate app icons, a customizable widget, an iPad version with Split View support, and more. I’ve never used an ambient noise app with such strong system integrations.

    This looks nice.

    Quick privacy settings question - how would YouTube know what I am listening to on Apple Music? I just went on a random Beatles binge out of nowhere (well actuallly due to having Nowhere Man stuck in my head) on Apple Music on my iPad - no searching online, just Apple Music.

    Pop open YouTube a little bit later and the first thing on my recommended feed is a bunch of Beatles videos.

  22. lol I thought the same thing after the last episode

    hello. Supporter

    I saw the title of the chapter for that part of the show and immediately knew I couldn’t do it, haha
  24. Hahaha, you probably chose wisely. John makes fun of him about it at the end and that made it worth it a little though.
  25. Improving Siri’s privacy protections
    At Apple, we believe privacy is a fundamental human right. We design our products to protect users’ personal data, and we are constantly working to strengthen those protections. This is true for our services as well. Our goal with Siri, the pioneering intelligent assistant, is to provide the best experience for our customers while vigilantly protecting their privacy.

    We know that customers have been concerned by recent reports of people listening to audio Siri recordings as part of our Siri quality evaluation process — which we call grading. We heard their concerns, immediately suspended human grading of Siri requests and began a thorough review of our practices and policies. We’ve decided to make some changes to Siri as a result.

    Good stuff here from what I can see. Owned up to the mistake.
