Re: The Apple Thread

Good news... the 13.3 beta lets you disable those f'ing memojis on the keyboard.

The ones that show up to the left of the emoji menu. It had always been setup to show your most used ones first. They added in those stupid animated ones before those so you have to (had to) see them.

These stupid things... to the left of the frequently used emojis. It's supposed to stay collapsed but doesn't reliably and other apps (Messenger) show them regardless. You could turn them off in the iMessage app section but they still showed up on the keyboard. iOS 13.3 lets you remove them from the keyboard entirely.

Re: The Apple Thread

Anyone elseís iPhone switch between dark and light mode randomly? I usually keep mine on dark, but it will be back to light without me adjusting the setting. Not a huge issue but not sure why itís happening.

Not me. Do you have the auto select activated? It'll change based on the ambient lighting when it's on.

I upgraded from S4 GPS to S5 LTE. I wanted the always on capability, and I needed LTE for work.

The always on "feature" actually sucks balls. It's too dim. When it's in dim mode, really really dim. When you raise your wrist to activate, it lights up but even on max brightness setting, not as bright as S4. Here is a pretty good discussion about it.

On the other hand, LTE is pretty much awesome. Well worth $10/month IMO.

Guess I wasn't missing much. Might need to wait for the s6 for a real fix.

I got the s4 with stainless and LTE. I don't need LTE but the GPS version with stainless was oos. Still, $300 off so can't complain. it can come in handy later should I need it, I guess.

They were OOS because they don't make the stainless steel in the GPS version. I think it started with Series 3 and continued to 4 & 5 where the steel versions were all cellular versions.

Ah didn't know that. I got my og watch which was stainless and was GPS only. They really gouge you at $300 more for stainless.
