    Maybe this will fix the Screen Time issues I have. I am the Organizer, I've set my daughter for downtime and such, but has never worked. Device never reports usage and works outside of downtime. I did set it up when I was on 12.1.1 beta 3 and she's on 12.1. Maybe when I update her to the today's release it will work.

    I guess this update is not so much for my 8 plus.

    Apple did work with them. There seemed to be a small technical issue that both sides didn't foresee where carriers set up as secondary on certain network types defaulted down to the old 2G one, but this update addressed it by all accounts. Now the carriers just have to deploy the codes.

    Are we running to update this, or will we wait a bit? I'm still scarred from my latest experience trying to update my Apple Watch...

    Where the Apple Watch works from personal experience, raw data. Not feeling the best at times. Had the ECG 12 wires and all. Results nothing wrong. Showed Dr. Apple Watch history data, not even ECG just heart rate over time. Dr. response need to have an extended, 24 hr. ECG. Well what do you know, Apple Watch was spot on. Something was not right and fixable. No Apple Watch data, doubt another test would have been ordered.

    Apple Watch not for diagnosis, gathers raw data that in my case worked as designed. Please do not confuse raw data with diagnosis, that needs to be left for the medical professionals. Gotta love today’s technology. :)

    How is CarPlay getting updated? Is being updated along with iOS updates or from the vehicle manufacturers software updates?

    FWIW, VZW rep on Twitter said this: Effective 12/7/18, Verizon supports Dual SIM activations on physical SIMs and digital eSIMs with Apple's release of iOS 12.1.1.

    You really believe that? I know we excuse Apple for lots of stuff but lol. Any version of proper testing would have shown that. Apple didn't let carriers start real testing until after the iPhone was announced and iOS was released due to "secrecy." Also, it's pretty widely known that AT&T & VZW have been trying to suppress eSIMs for a long time. So still, Apple did not do its due diligence as it had with hardware upgrades from 3G to 4G, SIM to micro and nano SIM. At the end of the day, Apple released a product that was not ready to be supported or utilized by a majority of end users but still charge them a premium for the tech.

    Not the 5s, 6/6+ or SE, but they also don't have a haptic engine.

    We're running full speed ahead!

    Sometimes it fails, sometimes it's wonderful. Most times it's a non-event :apple:

    Just spoke with Verizon rep and she confirmed that it shows they will be able to activate eSIM on 12/7/18. She also said that it must be done in store (not available through phone or chat support).

    Which is interesting, because I downloaded their MyVerizon app out of curiosity (am a T-Mobile consumer), and they made it look like you can activate eSIM right through there. Granted, I got up to the point where it said to call them to finish activation (haven't done yet), so am just wondering if that's what it's saying for now due to it not being the 7th yet.

    Can you link this tweet? I'm looking at their support account and there's no mention of a date.

    I’m actually really pleasantly surprised by the XR Haptic Touch for notifications, it works really well. I thought it would just be that you have to hold the notification for a while and it pops open, but it actually feels like a pushing a button, you get haptic feedback when you push down then the pop comes when you lift your finger, rather than waiting for you to hold your finger down for X amount of seconds. Feels very nice. I hope they continue to expand Haptic Touch after this.

    It passed the FDA... and my personal doctor has compared it against their ECG in his office and said it seems to be quite accurate.

    Not yet, and with this new update you can add Messages to the infographic face, but it won’t show up because the watch OS isn’t compatible!!!

    Tre lame...

    Regarding Verizon esim...

    Before today's update, when I had an esim as my Primary line, the Verizon line (physical sim) would not connect to LTE, it showed only 1X or 3G service (this was the problem that Verizon wanted to address before releasing esim support).

    After today's update, it seems to be working as intended. I can set esim as the primary line, with Verizon (physical sim) showing LTE service.

    I can't confirm or deny what the Verizon rep said for this Friday.... but I can confirm that the problem Verizon had with esim has been resolved.

    AT&T wireless support says that all stores should have QR cards for eSIM activation in stock. Consistent with this, I just picked up my card at the Ithaca NY store and will activate shortly.
