Once again Apple have made a balls of it.

Major problems being reported after latest update and as always I let my phones and iPads update.

When will I and Apple learn to wait.  :eeek:

My old iPod Touch updated without any apparent mishaps. Phew!

I don't think I've got any Apple devices current enough to get updates now.

My iPad Air 2 and iPhone 6s updated to iOS 12.4 okay and haven't given me grief.  I do feel the phone has become somewhat power-hungry since ~11 though.

Now you mention it, my iPod Touch keeps telling me to recharge the battery.  When I connect it up, it often has a retained charge of almost 50%.

Not sure if it still works, but in the olden days, running a device completely down and recharging it a couple of times used to seemingly breathe new life into old batteries.

That's still the recommended course of action, Simon. Perhaps Apple regrets having sold such good batteries in the past.

Actually, I've just noticed my iOS version numbers were a bit ambitious when I typed that back in June.  I meant of course, "iOS 11.4" and "since ~10".  Soz.

Meanwhile, my old iPhone 5 tried to double its capacity by expanding the battery to almost twice its size when I charged it a couple of days ago.  I won't be doing that again.  On the 'plus' side, I managed to pick up a 32GB iPhone 7 for 180 last week and will now keep the 6s as a spare.  I really think I should have gone straight to an 8, but let's see what wonders iOS 12 brings us in a couple of weeks time.

I'm out of Apple's clutches at the moment, but treat Android updates with equal trepidation.  if iPhones had expandable memory, I might consider switching back, but the higher storage capacity ones are just too expensive.

Mrs Clive also has an iPad Air 2 but we were away on holiday when the update came out so I can only assume it had been sorted by the time we came home.

I feel more comfortable with my Samsung phone updates these days than I ever did with Apple  :ack:
