  • So what is 8.2 bringing to our phones? Anything major or is it mainly behind the scenes fixes.
  • Watch support. That is huge for some developers. Plus probably some other small features and bug fixes. Sent from the iMore App
  • Maybe for iOS 9.. But I want dark mode for iOS native apps! Similar UI as in FaceTime and ITunes (movies section)!
    So fucking tired of this sore iOS white! Sent from the iMore App
  • Jailbreak it and you will have that option!
  • I personally think they use white because it's the most "pleasing" for both devices. Black is a little garish on a white iDevice but white, for whatever reason, is okay on the black iDevices. That's the only thing I could think of.. unless they started theme-ing them: white iPhones ship with white interface and black iPhones use the darker interface. Sent from the iMore App
  • Or have a simple option in settings to change it similar to invert colors. Not super difficult Sent from the iMore App
  • Shouldn't depend on the phones color. It's all about the users experience. MANY are still complaining about this sore white! The thing is to mainly use dark theme when it's dark and because the white is to overwhelming for the eyes. Simple as that. And as the person below mentioned: add this dark theme option similar to "invert color option" Sent from the iMore App
  • THIS^^ + Give me a toggle to turn OFF auto arrange on my apps, LET ME PUT THEM WHERE I WANT DAMIT...
  • Any chance iOS 8.2 fixes any bluetooth connection issues?
  • This.
  • What kind of connection issues are you seeing and on which device?
  • Anyone else have my issue with Siri that it won't read back messages I dictate from lock screen? Whether bluetooth in my car or in my pocket with headphones with buttons. I've tried toggling "Always" & "Only hands free", and I've tried toggling Siri entirely. I had this issue with my 5S since iOS 7.1 (didn't happen before 7.1), and it has carried over to my restored iPhone 6. I REALLY don't want to install fresh. Any other ideas? Any indication this is being fixed in these betas? Sent from the iMore App
  • I wanna see an update that specifically brings enhancements to the battery !!!
    Why apple isnt doing such thing ? Sent from the iMore App
