I’m having some issues with my Podcasts app but is this really how they designed this app? Hopefully it’s a bug. I’m planning to do a full backup and restore when 13.1 comes out. Hopefully that will fix some of the issues I’m having.

Podcast is only streaming to a Bluetooth speaker or Apple TV, if I have WiFi or BT on. I made another thread about that because it’s pretty annoying.

My keyboard disappeared. Several times today and I have to force close to fix it.


I’ve seen some weird color on the sides of apps, I think it’s background showing through. I haven’t taken screen shots because I was working on something else when it happened.

Swipe keyboard isn’t picking up the space bar so I can only do words at a time. Maybe this is meant to be that way.

I’m missing my buttons at the bottom of emails (forward, reply, file, delete). It looks like it was done on purpose but I don’t know why they would make it more clunky and leave 2 buttons on the side awkward looking.

The fonts and buttons in Safari look odd. Maybe it’s what Apple wanted but it looks unfinished.

Because it longer burns my eyes at night? It’s more aesthetically pleasing for a lot of us? It saves battery on OLED phones? Choice is good?
ive owned my x since launch, never really felt my eyes burn at night. How’s about lowering the brightness? It’s really not aesthetically pleasing especially safari. Saves battery ?That is subjective and relative to a persons usage. My battery is still great. Cause my brightness is low. Choice is good, I agree. Not sayin that shouldn’t have it.
Just don’t know why users been begging for it?

Night mode is completely optional and depending on our liking can be kept always ON, OFF or change automatically when certain conditions are met, all in Settings - Display & Brightness.

I like how you’re trying to tell me that just cos your eyes don’t hurt that mine shouldn’t? Battery is objectively better on an OLED with blacks showing as the pixels are literally off. You cannot disprove it and say it’s subjective, it is facts.

I literally gave you reasons why people want it and you ignore it

I didn’t ignore your reasons, in fact I agreed on the last one.

And I’m just expressing my experiences. Usually if your eyes hurt there is a simple remedy. Lower the brightness. Yet people wait for dark mode?
I didn’t ignore your point, just though it was foolish.

Lowering the brightness just makes everything harder to read. I have light sensitivity and have had to practically run the iPhone with 20% brightness and white point reduced by 90% since iOS 7 or just run it in Greyscale at times. With dark mode I can run it with 80% white point reduction and 50% to 70% brightness. So it does help some of us even if it isn’t for you. Options are never a bad thing, if you don’t like dark mode don’t use it.

But do you honestly believe I didn’t try lowering brightness first before using dark mode? Please.

it is not foolish in the slightest considering lowering your brightness does not eliminate the blinding white of iOS. Dark mode fixes that

Does the Apple Podcast app look better in 13.1? Maybe it’s the color scheme I don’t like.
