This is follow-up functionality to water-proofing provided by last year’s iOS 7 release.
So back on December 8th I posted my original iPad Air Fail post.
I had suggested reviewing the following thread: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5532206?tstart=0
It is a long thread
Despite the glowing reviews of the mainstream press and tech community, there are still many frustrated users out there whose iPad Airs have regular Safari crashes, App crashes, and even full reboots.
I am an Apple fanboy, some have even called me an Apple apologist. Be that as it may, I am closely following a thread on the Apple support discussion site that suggests that there are problems in the Apple orchard. To wit, iOS 7 has memory management problems that cause the Safari browser and other apps to crash or the iPhone/iPad to crash and reboot. Both cases leave a ‘LatestCrash‘ and/or ‘LowMemory‘ log in
Setting > General > About > Diagnostics & Usage > Diagnostics & Usage Data
(You must have ‘Automatically Send‘ checked)
Additionally many experienced folks are suggesting that the mere 1GB LowMemoryof RAM found on the iPhone 5s / iPad Air / iPad Mini with Retina Display is woefully inadequate to support the A7 CPU 64-bit architecture.
The Ipad air low memory crash thread on the discussions.apple.com site had 18,652 views and 280 posts at the time of this post.
I have had a handful of crashes on my new iPhone 5s, nothing too worry about, but others appear to have been less lucky. If you are experiencing problems since upgrading to iOS 7 or are having problems with your new iPhone 5s, iPad Air, or iPad Mini with Retina Display you are not alone.
Ever since iOS 6, Apple has included a microphone icon on the keyboard.
Above you can easily see the microphone icon. Next to it is the icon for changing between international keyboards.
One of the things that I don’t like about the iPhone is the fact that the keys on the keyboard are too small for my fat fingers.
I’m testing what I can do with dictation. In fact this entire post has been dictated using my iPhone. It’s really very amazing; yet another example of Arthur C Clark’s “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.”
One of the things I’ve noticed is that the microphone for the iPhone is on the bottom and so I have to be careful about how I hold it otherwise I cover the microphone with my thumb and of course then it doesn’t work. I also just noticed that it doesn’t like the word “thumb”. I get “some”; I get “from”; but I don’t get thumb.
However I think it’s good enough. I plan to begin dictating all of my posts on my iPhone. I think I’ll use it on my next installment of Day 42 (DayZ of DiZeaZe).
