A former Apple employee says they have solved a notorious iOS 14 notification issue... by buying a Samsung Galaxy A12.
First spotted by ZDNet, user 'StubbornPixie' took to the Apple Support Communities forum (opens in new tab), where a massive iOS 14 text notification thread has now garnered 11,242 comments. First started in September of 2020, the initial question reads:

MAN BITES DOG!! Someone who “worked for Apple for 10 years in Customer Relations out of Austin, TX” (whatever that means) found that a $180 phone suited his needs. Good for him.
And the proof that s/he actually was an Apple employee is what?!
So now the so called ex-Apple employee can see all his / her notifications as can Google, their affiliate developers, and the Chinese govt. I hope they are happy on Android.
