Is it still possible to write to Tidbits? I have no idea what Discourse is all about, but th name suggests that it might be the platform I want.
- Specific question about IOS 12.1: I use an iPhone SE and an iPad that is from 2016, both updated to 12.01. (My MacBook Air is also three years old.) I never use emoji and would love to disable the feature. I rarely use FaceTime, do not Tweet and am not active on FaceBook. Is there any compelling reason to upgrade IOS? (Or for that matter Mojave?)
- More general comment on the last years with Tidbits: please consider adding a running column on ‘minimalizing change’ where your experts address how to maintain the usability of Apple products with as little change as possible. Updates to systems and apps in the past decade increasingly impose features that I do not need or want and that I do not want to take the time to understand. Many seem relevant to those living in the USA (I live in Denmark and work in parts of the world where internet bandwidth is severly restricted and blackouts are not uncommon) or who use social media a great deal. I need to keep things simple, communicate to specific friends and colleagues and especially to be able to use my devices off-line. I realise I sound like a Luddite but also am quite sure that many users have similar views and similar needs.
