Thanks PPS.
Yes shifting from Android to iPhone is a nightmare. However shifting from iPhone to One plus was that much easy.

First impressions of the phone are it feels extremely well put together.
Congratulations man, seem like your color+storage combo was readily available. I have ordered pacific blue on 16th itself and the delivery is around 10 Nov. I did put in the order very late though.

Coming from OnePlus there will a drastic difference I suppose, let us know how it feels. I had an X before and XR after that so am hoping itís just incremental with a better screen. Itís sad that one has to order a wall charger separately as the bundle includes a usb-c charger. Luckily we got the usb-c wall charger last year with iPad so I donít have to buy it at least.

Thanks Turbowhistle.
Initially it was readily available however now the indian store also shows a delivery of 2 weeks from now for the silver. One of my relatives placed an order for the pacific blue on the 23rd as well and they received it on the 30th so I guess itís a matter of luck.

Honestly when I shifted from the iPhone 7 to the one plus, it took me a couple of days to adapt to the android system but coming back to the 12, I feel right at home. However, the phone physically feels a lot more premium and well put together as compared to the one plus.

If there was no post processing on this, looks like there is an asymmetrical vignetting. I guess a software update will fix that.

Am alien to these terms. Directly uploaded from the phone. Another picture from same time, these are night shots, full moon though. What does this mean in laymanís term? It does look nice on the phone though, our servers have a size limit.

The recent software update brings this amazingly practical feature through which you can execute some commands by double and tripple tapping your iPhone’s back panel.

* Worked on my SE2, XR and 12. Didn’t work on 7.

* Works even with a hard shell back cover.

Head to Settings-> Accessibility -> Touch -> Back Tap and Select commands you want to execute.

Sample list of commands:

Apple has issued a recall & free replacement for Airpods Pro models manufactured before Oct'20.

An affected AirPods Pro may exhibit one or more of the following behaviors:
Ė Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone
Ė Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise


The replacement is only for one or both Airpods (post inspection) and not for the case.

Details: Apple Support

Most modern phone cameras, capture + process the image and save it nowadays. All this AI detect the scene being captured and process it as per presets. It can detect the phone owners face and make it brighter too!

Some totally dig this feature

My 2015 iPhone SE behaves funnily sometimes.
I use an amazon Basics lightening cable or 2 original Apple cables to charge my phone. Charging is of no issues. In the evenings in my clinic, the phone is connected to my 2015 MacBook Air to charge and sync photos.
Sometimes randomly the phone refuses to connect, it keeps connecting and disconnecting 3-4 times a second with pinging tones. This happens for a while (sometimes 20 mins) and then stops with a stable connection.
I've cleaned the connectors, sockets, tried different cables, tried both USB ports, but the problem has to go away by itself. Nothing seems to work.
And this is very random - works ok for months continuously, then appears for a day or 2 or sometimes more and then disappears spontaneously. Most times it lasts for a few mins draining the battery by 10-20% and then stable connection is reestablished. This has been going on for 3 years and only with this iPhone-Macbook Air combo. I think it must be a software issue. but both devices are in the latest update. and the issue has been there in older OS versions too.
Am just ignoring it, but wanted to know if anyone else had similar issues.

This is a widely experienced issue and something I have seen sporadically with my MacBook Pro and iDevices too. A quick search netted a couple of fixes (here and here). Hope it works out!

As a result of this issue I stopped using the Mac to charge my iDevices, which I used to do quite often earlier. Also, ever since iCloud Backups have come along I have had less of a reason to connect them.

Is the iPhone 11 Pro still available at physical Apple stores? Maple or Aptronix or any other store affiliated with Apple? Also what is the price if available?

Just picked up a 6 ft iphone charging cable from Amazon which turned out to be a total dud. Phone actually discharges if I'm using it while charging and even leaving it untouched charging is super slow and randomly disconnects, the fast charge nonsense mentioned on the listing is all BS. There's no return so right now getting it replaced. Below is the link

https://www.amazon.in/Wayona-Braided...s%2C310&sr=8-6

I had bought an Amazon Basics cable 4 years back for my car and it's still going strong, probably gonna pay more and buy that one if I can get this money refunded.

Get on the phone with them and insist on a refund. They'll oblige for genuine issues even if the product is listed 'No refund, only exchange'.
