- I upgraded to a 13 Mini, coming from a 2016 SE (which was on iOS 12 - huge leap here)
- My SO upgraded from a XR on iOS 14 to a 13 on iOS 15.
- I also have a 2015 MPB running Sierra, and a new iPad running iOS 15.
I have a number of things I noticed in the change to iOS 15, but the biggest and worst issue is text notifications. I have my SO set as VIP and even so, I often do not get sound notifications.
One of my problems seems to be when DND is on (the phone) from 9pm to 9am, and I am working on my laptop. I rarely see the banners coming in, and the phone is not notifying me either, even though he is set as a VIP. I thought maybe the phone could “see” me and thought I could see it, so I turned it upside down and that didn’t help either. Sometimes it works right, but usually it does not.
He often texts on the way home to see if I need anything at the store. I rarely get a beep or notification then, laptop is nearby, DND is off.
Today I got a flat while on a bike ride. The phone was in my pocket and I had headphones on. He sent me THREE texts to confirm my location after he left and I only heard the last one. I have texts set to beep three times 2 minutes apart and I didn’t get one beep until the last text. I was 3 miles from home, DND was off, no iPad or computer to confuse the phone - WHY didn’t this work correctly?!
I’ve been using DND for a few years now and have had him setup as a VIP for quite awhile and he would always break through when on the old phone. This is especially frustrating as I have my parents setup as VIPs in case of emergency and I need this to work again.
Note: I have not gone to 15.1 yet, but it seemed to work better on iOS 12.x
