    Why did the colored tags in the iphone sub forum go away? They made it much easier to zero in on specific models of interest.

    I think it was making people's eyes bleed. Just click on the prefix and forum listing will be filtered by that type, that way you'll only see threads of that type.

    Speaking of the tags…
    Could this please be updated to reflect the new phones that are out now and coming soon?

    That’s totally frustrating…

    Conversations about something like the XS max have very little in common with X or simple XS discussions especially when size and usability conversations get going.

    To at least keep consistent with that there should be a new tag for XS (and Max).
    And I would definitely argue that the XR needs its own tag

    I don’t see why this is some big deal since you can just start eliminating old tags as we go along or migrate the old tags to an iPhone legacy area.

    It’s already a huge mess with people now using “other” for everything due to no XS tag

    There’s got to be a better way to do this as the user base and model lineup continues to get larger and larger as time goes on. We need more granular ways to isolate what conversations are about not just very general tags that don’t do anything useful.

    Thank you for the link by the way

    Thank you for adding more and specific tags for the different new iPhone models.

    It absolutely helps to narrow down discussions this way.
