Original apple cable would be the best option-

On the other hand, Belkin isn't a bad option at all-

Thank you. For some reason, I cannot digest the ridiculous price of the OE cables from Apple. Belkin seems to be a good alternative

Strange. I have been using three AB cables (two kept in the house and one in the car) for the last three-four years and they've all held up really well (being used even now).
Thanks for the confirmation.


For now, I have ordered one AB cable and one Belkin (as I was in the lookout for two).

Even amazon basics cables have great reviews and they work well. I have one and bought for 750 or 799 few months back.

Add me to the list of people unable to stand Apple OLED screens. Barely been a month with my 11 pro and I noticed strong eye strain and eye pain that i have never felt before. Although I knew about the PWM issues I never imagined it could be so severe. I really am contemplating selling off my 11 pro. There seems no other way out!

Amazing that you could stand it for a month, I couldn’t stand it more than a couple of days. Sold off my 11 Pro Max and am on the 11 ever since. The 12 series is the same and I am expecting the 13 (or whatever they call it) will also be the same with OLED screens.

Unless they change the screen technology don’t know when I would be able to buy a new iPhone and Apple doesn’t seem to care as we are a minority. Suggest you don’t prolong your usage with the 11 Pro and move on.

Cheers

My father had the exact same issue when he used to have iPhone 11 Pro, the symptoms for him kicked in quickly. Eye strain/fatigue with headache and fuzziness when reading text and had to blink a few times to refocus. He sold the phone after using it for five months, and replaced with an iPhone 11 in July 2020. iPhone 11 works just fine. Its display is perfect for him in terms of eyes comfort.

^Are these issues present on all mobile OLED screens (Samsung etc) or only confined to Apple?

Before moving back to Apple, I used the Samsung Note 8 and the Note 10 Plus which are supposed to be Super Amoled. Donít know if itís exactly the same, but I had no issues whatsoever with both the phones.

People who have issues with PWM or Pulse Width Management will have no issues with the iPhone 11 or the previous Apple phones as they have LCD or Liquid Crystal Display screens.

Even am curious about the same as I have been using Samsung A52 for past 3+ months and have these bouts of headaches in the recent past.

Are these OLED screens made by Samsung? How different are these screens to the one's used by Samsung on their own devices?

Actually, PWM is all the more prominent in Samsung phones. My partner had to shift from Samsung A71 to a POCO with a LCD to get around this.

Interesting. How come they do NOT speak about these issues, on many a reviews these models have on YT. Moving out of a newly bought device is quite expensive.

Despite very soft usage of the screen, my 4 year old iPhone SE doesnot sometimes respond to touch. I see this both at the centre (to pick calls / slider), or even when trying to switch from alpha to numeric keys.

It does return to normal when I restart it.

Currently running on 12.x.

Any idea what can be the reason ? Phone is always in my belt pouch, and never in my pocket.

I was trying to get a SECONDARY SIM, to avoid giving main number to all kids of online/ offline sites / characters - Separation of Concerns.

But I need to use old iPhone 6 for this.

Is there some technical issue why Jio SIM or Voda SIM might / not work on it anymore?

It supports VoLTE and I'd used it previously so, I wonder what changed?

Jio doesn't work on iPhone 6; tried and tested. All others work flawlessly.

Thank you sir. That makes sense given our attempts. I'll have to go non Jio for the second SIM.

Mostly Voda, as Airtel always has connect issues in Mumbai.
