Still running Mojave on my MacBook Pro. I'm gonna have to eventually upgrade to run Turbo Tax on it next year.
And yes, I did work some at an auction barn as a kid, moving livestock... I'd get up on fence and post to look at what 'pens' were occupied and ways around them to create the "logic picture" in my head to get from point A to Z then back to A... I could do it pretty quick... Some of the others that were older would blunder real time, have to back up a lot and go around occupied pens.... I knew where I was going already before I started... Little did I know what I was learning.....redneck style...
I loved Big Sur. Catalina was a disaster for me. Never have I ever had to reformat and reinstall macOS more than in the Catalina period. I lost track. Maybe 8-10 times. It was never good for me. Big Sur however was just fine almost from the start. I'm now on Monterey and am loving it. I loved the visual redesign of Big Sur and that's improved in Monterey.
I'm actually running the latest on all my Apple devices - iOS 15, iPadOS 15, macOS Monterey, etc. No issues.
I'm a day one updater and always have been. Never got burned. I get bored easy and I like new visual changes and a new coat of paint. I've never really had bugs with my Apple stuff. Nothing that would hinder productivity or what have you.
My Mac is a 2020 13 inch M1 MacBook Pro with 16GB RAM. It's a great machine.
Sad…went to upgrade my iMac and was told it is too old. Stuck on OS X. (Late 2013).
I know, I know. Donating the computer to my nephew’s kid for games (he is 3), and will do with my Windows laptop for now. Ugh. Loved that computer.
I will check that out! Thanks.Check this out. I'm running Big Sur on a non-Metal GPU 2011 MB Air. Definitely not an officially supported model. It's the only way I could run some real simple but necessary software, like my package tracking software. Works great, but does require a little tech-ability to get it running at first.
Are you not having any Notification problems in iOS 15 on any devices?
I've not updated from 14 yet on any devices, except, I just bought my wife an iPhone 13 Pro Max. Once activated, notifications don't work. A message sent doesn't light up the screen or make a sound when the phone is just sitting not being used. You only know that you have a message (or Messenger, What's App, etc.) if you pick it up and check the lock screen. Apparently it is EXTREMELY widespread. A few have gotten past the problems with some resets or setting changes, but most cannot find a resolution. So far, Apple has said and done nothing. Probably going to have to reactivate her old phone until this is worked out.
Sometimes I just want to fly to Cupertino and beat the shit out of a few people.
My grandpa had that problem last year and it was that for a few of his contacts, the people sending the messages were put on mute for some reason to where they could send a message, but it wouldn't ding or show up in the notifications on the lock screen. I'd make sure that isn't the case. Here's an article on how to turn that mute function on and off in iMessage:
I have a 13 Pro Max and I have not had that issue on mine, but when my grandpa got his 12 Pro Max last year, he had that trouble start about a month after he got the new phone. It was only 4 or 5 contacts, but his 4 or 5 most common contacts.
It wouldn't explain the trouble with WhatsApp and Messenger though. I don't use WhatsApp but I do use iMessage and Messenger frequently and haven't noticed any trouble. I would say if it's a known issue, it will get fixed. Make sure to update the phone to iOS 15.1 which is the latest update. 15.0.1 or maybe even 15.2 shouldn't be far around the corner.
Yea, I checked the obvious things, like muted conversations.
Turns out, it was because her iPad was nearby. She never uses it. It's normally put away. But, she's using it now. She watches something on it, with AirPods, sitting next to me, while I watch baseball.
Since the last time either one of us had multiple devices near us at the same time, Apple instituted a change. If you have multiple devices capable of accepting an iMessage sent to you, the OS's decide which one would be the best to display a message. For instance if you have an iPhone, an iPad and are wearing an Apple Watch, it used to be all 3 would "ding." Now, if you have latest or near latest OS's, only one will "ding." The OS's decide which device seems to be most logical to show a notification.
Her iPad volume was almost to zero. Sitting on the end table next to the couch where we were. The notifications were going to it, instead of her phone. I've deactivated Messages on the iPad. She doesn't have an Apple Watch (and never will.) So now her phone is receiving proper notifications as expected since it's the only device that accepts notifications to her phone number and Apple ID.
A lot of time wasted figuring all that shit out. Overturned a LOT of rocks before finding the actual answer.
