Thinking of

My growing frustration with iOS almost saw me head out this morning and get a Google Pixel 6/6 Pro or Samsung S21. Issues with autocorrect on the iPhone have made using it now far less enjoyable, common English can often be rejected as unknown, yet known at other times, their system is substantially broken.

So why didn’t i migrate? I realised my Apple Watch wouldn’t easily migrate, it’s something I use a lot. I could replace, sure, but don’t want to. I also do enjoy the interconnect between my Mac, iPhone and other devices. So, looking on other sites I found autocorrect could be turned off, which would resolve (mostly) issues I was experiencing.

Another issue i regularly have is the phone not hooking up with my car’s Bluetooth. I wasn’t sure if it was my old Mazda CX-5’s entertainment system causing the issue, but now experiencing the same issue in my new BMW X1, so is definitely iPhone.

How might future iOS releases improve?

  • Replace or get rid of the autocorrect system, it is a monumental failure in machine learning
  • Fix the Bluetooth system that has exhibited issues with connectivity for years
  • Introduce a system to deal with nuisance callers and spam texts, and improved machine learning system might help here!
  • Improve app and system update speed, especially given some apps vendors update so frequently they’re there to open your car door each day
  • Take a look at the Google Pixel 6’s queue handling feature, anyone who’s spend too much of their life on a phone queue needs that feature

It’s difficult to give up an environment you’ve invested so much in, even when so frustrated by. I do wonder will turning off the autocorrect feature ultimately resolve these issues or will i eventually relent and migrate? I’m my own worst enemy at times, impatient without doubt.
