It’s been there since the 11.
I've come from an XS, so this is my first experience of it, noticed someone in macrumors mentioned it was on the 12 too :)

I took a video on my son's 6th birthday, and you can see the reflection of all six candles!

Unplugged my phone at 7am yesterday, and when I plugged it back in at 10pm it had 44% left. Huge improvement compared to the first day, so presume all the OS caching is done now. Huge improvement on where my old phone was by the time I was done with it!

Apple making replacing parts on the 13 even harder than it was on the 12. Even using Genuine Apple parts the phone loses functionality.
Changing the display and using the original FaceID sensors causes FaceID and the selfie camera to stop working, along with auto brightness and TrueTone.

Only Apple can update the internal software, to pair replaced hardware, to get it working. 3rd party repairs aren't currently possible without having locked functionality.

This type of practice needs to be made illegal. It’s difficult though because they’ll use the safe working parts as an excuse.

Lucky you.
Apple want £650 for a replacement iPad Pro 12.9 screen :cry: A 3rd party replacement costs £200

Is that a genuine screen though?

I think apple are definitely doing some scummy things with repair but I think some people go too far and want their mate down the pub to be able to repair their iPhone with a hammer and for everything to be as good as new.

I replaced an iPhone screen with a cheapo one years ago and the quality and fit were crap. Part of the issue is apple being ***** and part of it is trying to protect themselves from QC and reputation damage.

If apple have a good reason for these things however they should come out and explain it.

If apple were forced to make genuine parts available then dodgy 3rd party screens wouldn’t be a problem. That’s all most right to repair legislation is asking for.

Don’t get me wrong I own a lot of Apple devices but their parts and repair practices are not defendable.

Loving the battery on the 13 Pro.

My 11 would start to die around 5/6 pm but this phone still has around 40% by the end of the day.

Very happy with it.

Further validates the decision to go with AC+ over third-party insurance.

Anyone for their iPhone 13 or 13 mini yet? How are the improved battery life claims holding up?
I don’t honestly notice much difference to my 12 mini (13 mini owner) but it might be because the phone has been doing some indexing in the background, or something.

Anyone noticed any touch sensitivity issues? My wife's 13 Pro Max seems to require additional pressure before registering anything, particularly in the corners/edges. Seen some tweets on twitter hypothesizing it could be an iOS 15 issue.
