  • I miss the old days when iMore actually had useful posts. Now it's becoming as much of a joke as Engadget and TechCrunch, both embarrassments of their former selves. Articles like this one are pointless, basic stuff 99.9% of iPhone owners already knows. Why pander to the 0.1% that probably don't even read this site?
  • I don't understand what harm it does?
  • Cannot agree more with EPJS. This sort of post is catering to a novice iOS user, who probably never reads these posts. Some of the newer writers are writing posts just for the sake of writing something. I stopped reading Engadget and the Verge and now I will stop reading iMore as well. Sent from the iMore App
