So, my wife says, “Hey, honey – got an e-mail from Verizon. They are running some kind of deal today on upgrading your iPhone.” So, over lunch I drop in to see what the deal is. Turns out I can double the memory, get way more data and some extra coolness on the side for no money down and only $3 more a month through some creative clicking by my “Solutions Specialist” Josh. At one point I ask him, “So how long has this new iPhone been out?” Suddenly everyone in the store goes silent and turns and looks at me as he answers, “Um, today.” No kidding. “So that’s why there are balloons and free donuts!” I say. Turns out there were lines this morning, but I was in and out in 20 minutes.
So far Iike it. But as with most major upgrades, ot is not without some head scratching.
- Videos won’t sync, though I notice it now allows Shared Libraries, so I can see movies on my iMac, but not the ones selected in iTunes to transfer.
- Music Playlists won’t sync, probably a related issue.
- Music displays every song you ever bought (while none that I want on the phone) and the feature to disable that (Show Apple Music OFF in Settings/Music) apparently is broken.
Will update progress.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ME!
