    Frankly, it seems nicely cleaned up besides the already solved glitches, but I do have one suggestion/question: there's no Apple forum under device manufactures. Shouldn't there be? I'm not a big Apple user, although I've recently considered going back, but it seems like it would make sense.

    The results you see, are from collapsing forums and sub forums. This forum has never been a leading forum for Apple posts, and as such, never a forum in that area for Apple hardware. The hardware options are for lack of better words, limited by Apple's own nature. You're more likely to have OS / software questions, than you are to have a specific model question due to this. If this forum should ever gain such popularity as to necessitate a forum just for Apple hardware, I'd think a sub forum could be added at that time.

    I like the iOS/iPhone relocation just fine. It makes sense. :vbsmile:

    Yes, but it's really the only one where the software/OS is combined with the hardware and there are differences. Even Palm has these separated and those are not really all that active (said as a Palm diehard).

    Palm has countless forums and sub forums, as Brighthand used to be the place to go for everything Palm. Representatives from Palm used to have discussions with the owner and staff of Brighthand, and took information directly back to Palm, on a monthly basis if I remember correctly. This was before exploits shook the industry, before using a device a few years old, meant that it was just old, and not a security vulnerability.

    The times have radically changed since the days of Palm. For iOS, if you are not using a device that is capable of using version 11.2.2 as of 1/15/18, I wouldn't even bother to offer support, beyond that of go get a new device and transfer your data. Anyone that begs to differ, can queue up in my support line, that I'll never get to. I don't see hardware forums for iOS to be of much benefit. The question needs to be, what OS version. If OS version =/= supported version, get updated or upgraded. Once up to date, then proceed with question.
