They're $490 on sale right now yes. but I'm also rocking an iPad air (latest,) MacBook pro (2015 to be updated this year) an iMac, and an SE. So switching is great, and honestly this year i'll upgrade phones to a 13 mini. (I buy phones outright, and use cricket, so I pay way less than most folks on their plans and phones). I also have regular AirPods (version 2) that are for yard work, working out. the Max are for noise canceling and working at my office/coffee shops/parks/planes/house sitting gigs/ and are amazing.

If I was in the market for cans I'd consider the max except for the fact you can't loving fold them. How the hell do you pack them into anything without them getting tweaked to poo poo by anything else in the bag?

The "case" they come with doesn't even protect the whole headset.

Before I travel on a plane again (lol) I'll get an off brand case on Amazon that easily can let me put them in a backpack.

I donít think anyone disputes they have great feel and sound.

Theyíre too expensive for the layperson and donít cater to hobbyists, itís basically ďhey do you want AirPods shoved together with Sonys or whatĒ
For me, theyíre basically useless as a product since most of my listening is done at home at my desk. I can get better sound for stationary listening and the convenience of AirPods byÖ just buying a nice wired headphone and AirPods, for significantly less than the Max alone.

Carplay has sucked since upgrading to 15. In addition to just being buggier in general, you used to be able to just tap the giant GPS directions box to silence the directions, and then tap them again to bring them back.

Now you have to tap the screen to bring up the OSD, then tap the tiny speaker icon to get the options, then tap the tiny "no sound" button to silence the directions. What used to be one tap of a giant box is now three taps on a tiny icon on the right (farther from the driver) side of the screen
Necro-ing this to bitch about how it also seems to be that now if youíve silenced the directions you donít get Apple Watch haptics anymore either. At least, Iíve rebooted my phone and watch and itís still not doing it. Before if you switched to the ďETA onlyĒ mode where Siri didnít announce the turns, the watch would still vibrate when a turn was coming up. Not working at all for me now with the ďalerts onlyĒ mode or whatever.

I use a handful of different media apps (YouTube, podcasts, a couple web radios etc). Is there any way to switch which app has "focus" in the lock screen or control center media thing, so I can continue a paused playback without having to go into the actual app and start it playing? Android has this and I'm missing it a lot.

Hereís a fun question for the thread. I use a couple years old jabra headset for calls and meetings a lot, but since I upgraded from a xr to a 13 pro, the headset just wonít stay connected. I really need a good headset for work but canít justify the cost of airbuds. I know that they may be the actual correct answer but Iím a cheap bastard.

I think it is literally just a patch for an exploit so it probably doesn't break anything that was working in 15.2

Has there been a jailbreak for iPhones in iOS 15? Searching returns nothing but the usual fake websites offering untethered jailbreaks, or videos showing a jail broken 6.

Seems preferable to my issue where my phone has now on multiple occasions moved everything from the default tab group to one of my other ones for seemingly no reason other than to irritate me.

I had that issue with a 2007 / 2008 era Jabra speakerphone. I couldn't figure it out :/

That's a toggle in Settings.app, but you have to navigate a labyrinth of ancient horrors to get to it.

As someone who used to jailbreak mostly for the control centre before the official one came in, whatís the draw for jail breaking these days?

Iím sure thereís some specific use cases I canít think of stuff that iOS canít do currently but Iím drawing a blank.

You definitely donít need a jailbreak for emulation. No idea about app piracy, other than I think itís a lot harder than it used to be even with a jailbreak??
E: jailbreaking also allows for a lot of visual tweaks if you wanna do that. But to answer the question asked, no, I donít believe thereís an iOS 15 jailbreak, at least not for devices newer than an A10??

You can control any Apple TV on your network with an iPhone.

For some reason I've never turned on iCloud photos until now. Well also I never had a Mac until now and didn't like the iCloud Windows interface. Anyway, quick question - if the full quality version of the image is not on the phone, does it display a little cloud icon over it? Do you then have the option to download the full quality image?

If you add your TV to Home you can control it there. It may require a Homebridge to get working however.

In my experience the only real sign that itís not on your phone is a little loading circle that is overlaid in the corner when you open the picture in Photos and the preview shown is clearly kinda low-res.
