What could possibly go wrong?

I've done it. It did one surprising thing, but no big deal. No data has been lost and I kinda wish it did more now. If I could have it replicate my Pictures folder, I'd move my Photos and Lightroom libraries outta there and let it. I'm constantly working with graphics and photos for web & development work (and thus outside of any DAM), but my brain refuses to let me put those in the Documents folder. I may have to create Documents/Pictures. Hmmmm.

+T Baucells it is not unique to the iPhone 7, but it does require a 12 megapixel camera, so is limited to the following devices: iPhone 6s, 6s Plus, iPhone 7, 7 Plus, iPhone SE, and the 9.7-inch iPad Pro. And of course you have to be running iOS 10.

I finally got around to submitting my iOS app Night Clock to the App Store and I am happy to say it got approved for sale today.

I've been using this on my iPhone every night for quite some time now, and that's why I built it. It's my perfect bedside clock.
One of the simplest clocks you can imagine. I wanted a very simple, analogue, dark clock face to have beside my bed at night. The exactness of digits stimulates my brain so I need just to get a vague idea of the time – a perfect job for a numberless analogue face. But, just in case the insomnia kicks in, a brief period with the second hand might help you out – touch and hold the clock face for a second, then as it fades, so might you.

Learning all sorts of details from this.

I was just thinking, though... Semi-annual. Episode 234. Did I miss the centennial show? ;-)

If you depend on ScanSnap, do NOT upgrade to Sierra! Scansnap has come out with the following message, the first line of which says:

"Some pages of the PDF files that have been generated with ScanSnap applications may become blank when they are edited or converted to searchable PDF files on macOS Sierra".

Yeah, those paper documents you shredded because you had a scan will be gone...

+Allister Jenks At the very last MacWorld Fuji won the "big award" for the ScanSnap ix500.

Why? It has wireless capability meaning it is possible to scan to an iOS device.

As if. Oh, I'm sure it's used, but get real. 30 + duplex pages a minute to an iPhone?

Whatever. The ix500 is a superlative device, connected USB to a Mac or Windows computer running Fuji software. Even connects and works well with Linux. We use ours with Macs, Ubuntu, and Mint, though no Fuji Linux software :-(

The snark I have about it is previous ScanSnaps for Mac came with Adobe Acrobat Pro for Mac. Our ix500s came only with Acrobat "Standard," for Windows. A big loss on the Mac side. Then, it won an AWARD for scanning to iPhones, and Acrobat Pro won't run on iOS.

And this is when the madness first began. I just stumbled across this email from our friend Ron Burch from April of 2008 when he pointed us to a rumor that Walt Mossberg said a new iPhone was coming and it would be called the 3G.

The iPhone 3G was the first model available in New Zealand, and was launched first in New Zealand (due to time zones). I lined up in the middle of the night to get one and my calculations say I had one of the first hundred sold in the world.

To borrow a phrase, the Series 2 doesn't have enough reverse paper cuts to tempt me.

Perhaps most critically for me, like you, I want communications when I'm out and about Right now I'm limited to phone calls and SMS when I'm out because I (stupidly) used up all my data allocation for the month a good week before renewal, and THAT feels like I'm disconnected from the world.

Well THAT was easy. Only 18 steps using 2 devices to allow Apple Watch to open MacBook. Had to turn OFF 2-step verification, turn ON 2-factor Auth.

4-digit codes in SMS, 6-digit codes in SMS, 4-digit iCloud code I was supposed to know, local password, iPhone password, iCloud Password and finally MacBook password.

Is it worth it +Allison Sheridan using the Apple watch to open your Mac? I started to try it with first being faced with switching on Two Factor Authentication, but things started to pop up, that rely on iCloud for syncing, wanting app pacific passwords to continue on. So I reverted back until I find out more. Seemed to me it could turn into nightmare trying to set it up.

I have a sudden problem. I updated to iOS 10 with no problems last Tuesday. However, this morning I have suddenly noticed a huge battery drain (down from 100% to 44% in two hours), evidently caused by a circular double-arrow spinning away at the top of the home screen and just to the left of the icon for location services.
Nothing I have done has stopped this arrow, so my battery is draining faster than I can keep up. I've done the two-button restart, signed out of iCloud and back in, checked to be sure that there is no iCloud backup going on (that happened overnight while I was charging the iPhone), turned of all background app refresh options. I did install a new app yesterday: 1Blocker, which works in Safari, but I don't know why that would do this.
I called AppleCare, and Jesse had me do some of the things I've listed, but there was nothing else he could come up with, other than to refer the issue to the engineers, which means at least a few days of not having reliable battery life on my phone.
In the screenshot below, the arrow points to the icon I'm talking about, though that icon is spinning constantly. I've already recharged the phone once more this morning, and it's down again.
Does anyone have any further ideas? Has this happened to anyone else? Thanks!

Need some help getting my Photos "My Photo Stream" matched up between devices. Currently it shows 114 images on iPhone, 26 on Mac, and about 500 on iPad.

Verified I have Photo Stream turn on in all devices. I do not use iCloud Photo Library. Have done a wired sync with both iPhone and iPad to Mac.

I have noticed, on my Mac, under My Albums, I have an album called iPhoto Events. Within that are several "insert month & Year" Photo Stream folders. I have not added them all together to see if they equal the number on my iPad. I even have a "Sept 13, 2014" event in my iPhoto events and it contains 2 pictures. Right next to that is a "Sept 13, 2014 Photo Stream" event with 3 photos. One of the photos is a duplicate of one in the other event.

How do I get My Photo Stream straightened out. The wife is seeing the same issue as I am.

Regards,

John

Does anyone here have an iPhone 7 (not 7+)? If so could you please do this experiment for me?

Take a photo, connect phone to Mac, open Image Capture and download the image to your desktop. Open the image in Preview. Do a get info (command-I).

Now tell me what it says on the EXIF tab next to Color Space. On the 7+, it's saying "Uncalibrated" as shown in the screenshot here. On the iPhone 6, it says "sRGB".

Trying to figure out why this is.

Rene Shggested I try Air Drop to verify. Still no color space. Note that Preview doesn't see it AND affinity Photo says they're assigning my default color profile because the image doesn't have one.
