      Have they fixed PDF creation and editing in the release?

      You mean the PDF editing that comes with the OS, rather than being an Adobe add-on that just displays PDF, has no editing facilities, and which still has to be updated every time you use it?

          Almost as useless as a one line reply that gives no clue who you were replying to.

        • The question your GGP asked was useless, too.

          On a Mac you say "print" and then "save as PDF" ... nothing to edit.

          • On a Mac you say "print" and then "save as PDF" ... nothing to edit.

            That's just the way you create a PDF. What I'm talking about is the ability to, after PDFs have been created or downloaded, remove individual pages from one, copy and paste pages from other PDFs, write text on PDFs, and apply markups like circling a price or drawing arrows to text you want to emphasize. To do these things on a PC you have to buy a "Pro" version of the Acrobat add-on that costs hundreds of dollars.

  • Does iOS 10.3.2 address the battery life issues that affect older (*cough*iPhone6*cough*) iphones?

    • by Jzanu ( 668651 )
      Turn off background app refresh, and turn off location services for everything except the compass (used for map directions, etc.). That will double your battery life easily.

        > Turn off background app refresh for each app

        To turn it on/off GLOBALLY: Settings > General > Background App Refresh
        To turn it on/off LOCALLY: Settings > (scroll to very bottom to select app) > Background App Refresh

        i.e.
        Settings, Amazon, Background App Refresh

        Turn off your phone completely and the battery will last quite a long time. Problem solved. And your life will be improved.

        The issue with iPhone 6s is not that the battery runs down particularly fast. The issue is that iOS thinks it does. It's very annoying to have the phone drop from 30-some percent to zero and shut itself off. Turning it on immediately shows between 20% and 40% battery remaining. One of the early iOS 10.x patches introduced this bug, and Apple's taking their time to fix it. Or took their time, if 10.3.2 actually addresses it. I'm not holding my breath.

        • Of course Apple takes their time to fix it. Most Apple customers will think their phone is worn out and go buy a new one!
  • My phone is not booting - it's sitting there a 1/4 through the install, nice !
