Hey. I've been reading MacRumors for years and recently noticed there's a forum! For years I wanted to get into iOS development and now I've developed a couple apps. Excited to share what I've made!

Hello !

I'm new to the forum. My last Apple computer was an Ibook G4 and now I'm thinking to buy a Ipad Pro.

Howdy, longtime lurker because I'm a DIY upgrade and homelab enthusiast. Right now I'm upgrading a cMP 4,1.

Where can I find all the rules for Newbies? Like how many posts one has to make to get restrictions lifted, etc...?

This will be a bit of a test... Another of these threads started with good intentions... but was soon taken over by regulars.

if you just joined MacRumors, reply and introduce yourself.

This is only for new Macrumors users... only users who registered within two months of the current date may reply...

All other users posts will be deleted. (moderators, please enforce this). This will be for myself included... only comments by truely "new" users will be allowed in this thread.

Discuss away...

(this could fail miserably if no one replies :) )

Hello all. PC enthusiast. PC technician. Love computers and technology. Just getting into repairing and diagnosing mac's. First impressions, apple makes beautiful hardware from the inside and out. Really high quality stuff. I've currently only own a 2012 a1466 I bought off of Craigslist with the intentions of it being a project and it's definitely turned into that. 😅

Morning all.

Having been aware of and visiting the site for years, I have finally given in and registered.

Live in Wales (currently a part of the UK).

Have an iPhone 6S - which I got at a good price shortly after it came out. Generally happy with it.

However, in the last year or so, the battery has become very, shall I say, fragile? It can be fully charged, yet drop to less than 20% just by being carried around for a few hours. Yesterday, it went from about half-charged to 1% in about two hours. Plugged it in and was back to 47% after five minutes. IOS claims it is at 83% maximum capacity, while I feel it is more like 50%. New battery seems like a waste - rather put the money towards a replacement. (I did replace the battery in partner's 5C myself - which was fun. But it didn't actually last that well.) A powerpack and car USB outlet have become my constant travelling companions.

I'd like:
Better battery life;
A larger screen;
More storage (currently only 16GB);
Better camera;
More sensitive and power-efficient 3G/4G and wifi communication.

Shall probably get an iPhone 12 shortly after release. Whether it will do everything I'd like? I don't know. Expect disappointment with telephoto/optical zoom.

My most used apps are (probably) the Guardian newspaper (for which I pay), Mail, Safari, sometimes Here We Go, the HealthUnlocked app (which I almost never use - preferring to use the browser - and have just deleted), and the UK Met Office app. Have come to appreciate PlantNet - a lot.

I use a pair of Xiaomi ear pods - which I find excellent and relatively inexpensive (about £25).

Hello! My name is Shelly and I just registered here today. I have used Apple products for years (mostly Ipads and a Mac). I joined to learn how to get the most out of my Ipads (particularly since Distance Learning has started) and to offer any information I come across that is accurate and helpful.
