I rather like the tick noise the watch makes when tapping things but the rest of the noises can gently caress off. Mine's been on mute since the day I bough it.

Well, not so much a crew as a collection of unaffiliated individuals who all choose to use their device the same way but the hashtag works better with "crew"

Something Awful, so easy even a spaceman can do it!




I am a teacher so #MuteCrew from day one. In fact, I forgot what my ringtones are until I had my airpods in and got a call.

I missed a lot of things with my phone muted (and sitting on my desk) but my watch keeps me up to date really well.

I am waffling back and forth about doing the beta test for the watch so I can use the watch unlock for the phone. It would be extremely useful in the classroom but I am guessing that it will not be public until summer time.

For whatís itís worth, Iíve been running the watch beta for a while with zero issues. And the watch unlock is an amazing qol upgrade.

Nothing to add to this. Iíve had no problems and itís an amazing QoL upgrade.

Had to factory reset my S3 twice in a row to get a software update to go through. Really should bite the bullet and upgrade one of these days but damnit if Iím not too stubborn for my own good.

Same on both the update issues and the desire. I was helping setup my Mom's S6 this weekend and it has me thinking about it...

Yeah same, kind of tempted to upgrade. But really the hassle updating is my only issue, my S3 still works great and none of the new features sound game changing.

I was in the same boat but the SE was a cheap enough upgrade to make it worth it.

Thatís was with a trade in though.

I considered doing this in February when they were offering sweeter trade in deals, but the S3 has sentimental value to me.

Iím glad Iíll finally have a real reason to update my watch to the next watchOS version.

I hate I have to unpair it (and redo my Apple Pay cards) just for software updates.

But Iím drat excited about the iPhone unlock if Apple Watch is unlocked functionality. Especially while wearing a mask and using faceid.

I worked the last 8 months in retail , wearing a mask, and always having to type my lock code to unlock my phone. Of course the update where your watch overrides the mask issue with face unlock comes out the month after i get a work at home job and finally (after 12+ years) leave retail.

You'll still get to use the feature a lot because we're gonna be living with mutations of this bullshit pandemic for the rest of our dumb lives.

Wow, I didnít realize you could swipe left on the Time To Walk activity in the fitness app to remove it. I have just been quietly annoyed with it every time I go for a run for the last month.

I mostly deleted it because the little loading spinner whenever it refreshes infuriated me. I am too important to waste that 0.5 seconds!

Morons! I have morons on my payroll!

A friend has a Series 4 with a cracked screen. Apple store guy told her that itís cheaper to just buy a new watch rather than have it repaired. Is this really the case? Does anyone else fix these things?

The watches are basically unrepairable, it's just a big brick of glue and battery.

Damn, this is good coffee.

It's why AppleCare for the watch is basically a no-brainer at $69.

Yeah, imagine my anger when I shelled out extra for the Series 3 SS model (because I tend to scratch my non-sapphire watches), only to have the screen pop off 3 months after Apple care ended.
I think they wanted something like 400 CDN$ for a repair.
