My last utterance about Apple, and my wife's iPhone. Never again... Sorry, this is my rant. I've got to let off steam... This is no way a reflection of my relationship with my wife. Only my strained relationship with Apple. It was not meant to last evidently. Because, here we are, iPhone again. I spent nearly 4 hours of my life, working on getting her device setup last night. 4 hours of gnashing my teeth, trying in vain to get her device up and running. Verizon's new shtick - We give you a double sided instruction sheet on how to migrate to your new device. Every step past step 1, is INCORRECT! Every menu option they tell you to find, is not where they say it is. Verizon no longer assists you in moving to your new iPhone. They give you the sheet, make sure you can make calls, and send you on your way. She's got the 8+. The thing is painfully slow, out of the box. With no way to know what the device is doing, I could only guess that wifi was suspect. I downloaded and installed Speedtest.net. I was appalled at the results. I don't run a pro-anything environment. Meaning, my environment does not favor one OS or vendor over the other. That does not mean that I do not favor one OS or vendor over the other. Those are two separate things. Her new iPhone could barely muster 70mbit down, and that was with wild fluctuation. Never got faster than this speed. Upload was pathetic. 1mbit. 7mbit, .5mbit. I've got AC wireless. I connected her iPhone to my 5ghz band. My computers, and my Note8, also connect to this same band. I have no overlap with my neighbors. My phone pulled 114mbit down, 12mbit up, repeatedly. So did my computer. Nothing else was running when her iPhone was doing its test. I ran it against Verizon as well, and the results paled in comparison to what my Note 8 did on Sprint. I've no idea what the normal speed for either carrier is, I only know what I saw. Trying to add her Google accounts to the mail app? Key in the email address, and wait minutes, yes minutes, for the next screen to load. Just to make sure that there wasn't some sort of service disruption, I pulled up my old Note 5, and configured it for her. I entered her Google account to add it there, and it flew through the account setup process. Meanwhile, the iPhone finally got to the enter password screen. What is up with Apple's backup and restore option? Honestly - You go to one place to turn on iCloud backup, and make a backup. Hey, let's be all stupid, and make the user go someplace else, to restore instead of grouping backup and restore in the same convenient location. Let's not provide way to selectively restore either. It just drops all the crap with no way to adjust. If you tell me I have to go to a computer to adjust this, you've just lost your case that it is 'easy'. My wife asked me about getting the Google Pixel while she was at the store, and I was inconveniently in the staff bathroom at work. I couldn't tell her much of anything either way at that moment. It was either the Pixel, or an iPhone as a choice. (Work provides her with a phone, and plan, which I am thankful for.) She was overwhelmed and intimidated by it at the store, and ultimately chose a device that works best for her. This is why men die younger. I just had Apple suck years of my life out of my body.
