As usual with developer betas, I’ll give this warning to the Monzo community: x.0b1 releases are usually very rough. Major functionality will be broken. If you rely on your iPhone, Watch, iPad, or Mac in any way, stay clear of non-public developer releases.
Additional reminder that unless you work in a few places at Apple, don’t expect to be able to downgrade your Watch back to a stable release of watchOS.
If you have any iOS/tvOS/watchOS/macOS beta software profiles installed on your devices, this is your last day to remove them before they start automatically downloading the OTA updates tomorrow.
I’d been waiting for the iOS11 announcement to decide what my next phone will be…
After 10 years with an iPhone, I’m going to jump ship! I’m utterly disappointed by the lack of development, features and forward thinking. Whilst I accept iOS is a great system, I feel that it’s stagnant and Android is now starting to jump well ahead.
I tend to agree to an extent and have thought about it myself. Bought a Samsung S8 and actually felt it wasn’t as good as iOS after trying for a few days. I went straight back to iOS, after having been on it 10 years like you. What specifically do you think Android does better?
I tried Android and went back to iOS purely because the apps are not as good and tend to always be behind iOS (Monzo case in point) granted some of the hardware is far superior to iPhone but I just don’t like the software.
I admit, I’m commenting having not used Android, but I read a lot! Things Android seems to do better… Widget support, customisation, default app choices, cleverer things like turning on wifi when you get home (being more aware), Google Now (I’m one of the minority that doesn’t mind Google knowing all about me if it makes it work better for me), NFC, notifications are better.
I’d love to be able to test drive it - to check my theory before committing.
If the WiFi’s not connected to a network, and you have disabled the setting to notify you when new networks are detected, I would be surprised if the WiFi had a noticeable impact on battery life. But I’ve never seen any test on this, would be interesting to know.
It stops the phone/tablet seeking nearby WiFi signals and therefore as @HoddzDJ said it does save your battery. In reality if you leave the WiFi option on in many cases it will only detect secure signals that you can not get into without a password. Best therefore to only turn it on when you get to a McDonald’s or a hôtel where you trust their WiFi and are given a password or just have to accept usage terms in your browser
