Simple poll. Just wondering if people send it in and if not, why?

I normally didn't but decided I will now with my Air to hopefully help them see these low memory issues I'm starting to see a few of.

No but not due to privacy concerns. I try to turn off anything that might preserve battery life.

Not sending the diagnostics is like not voting then complaining. If you don't send them and your devices/apps crashes you should not complain. It doesn't take that much battery power unless yours is crashing constantly which in that case you should let Apple know.

That violates doctor-patient privacy as well as HIPPA. I'd never send my diagnostic info to Apple.

Device Diagnostics do not send any personally identifiable information, much less any medical or patient data to Apple.

I hope you're not a doctor. If someone doesn't even know how to correctly spell HIPAA, I have doubts they know what it even entails.

Thank God for that! I thought they sent my x-rays and my blood workup each time I turned on my iPad!! ROTFLMAO! OH MY GOODNESS!! It was a joke. :eek: Oh, and thanks for the spelling lesson. Actually it's not a word but an abbreviation so my spullung chicker didn't pick it up. But frankly I didn't care anyway. ;)

Nope. Never will. I always opt out when I can.

I'm pretty sure there are thousands of other people with the same problems. They should be fixed either way, and one extra person sending in their diagnostic info isn't going to make much of a difference.

Yep. On both Mavericks and iOS 7 devices. Apple needs to know about issues before they can fix them.

From Mac most of the time when it ask me;
Not from iPad; bad behavior from times with small 3G data caps as I can't control the timing of sending. Plus half of those on iPad are due to my own development activities. Don't need to bother Apple with those. ;)

Exactly what my iPad Air 16gb looked like on Tuesday.
So what did I do? I took it back and got a 32gb I only had like 1.7 gb left on my 16gb and kept getting low memory crashes.

Problem solved! It cost me a $100 extra dollars but now I have 18gb left instead of 1.7:)

Not sure if serious

Yes I'm serious!
I was having low memory crashes,so I took it back and got a 32gb iPad air.
No more low memory crashes.
Not sure if still serious.

Those memory logs are not referring to storage space...
