I can't wait for the Note 8, but iOS will always be one of my daily drivers. It's among the best OS's on the market.

You know there are MORE than two Os'es, right? And he never specified/implied that he was only talking about mobile Os'es either.

Exactly. A troll tried to troll, and got silenced.

The best just keeps on getting better. Haters and their salty river of tears need not comment. Just fill out the butthurt report form that I'm providing for you.

Because you excited about an update, that isnt even a big deal? lol. It does matter man. Apple devices can get 10 updates in a year and still those devices will do less than a 5 year old Android. It's just a number dude.

What are you babbling about now? You're obviously candidate #1 for the butthurt report form.

True: they do less to give one personal data to others; they do less to annoy the user; they do less for advertisers to push adds to one's phone. That kind of less, because it does a lot more in functionality department.

I just updated my iPad to 10.2 over weekend. Now another update? I will let the pawns go first, just in case it has issues. 10.2 made my iPad Pro really sluggish, so now I have to backup, and factory reset and try again. Apple updates really need work. That's why I took a long time to update to 10.2 because some people had their device be less responsive afterwards when doing an OTA update. Seems to update better when done via iTunes. But Itunes sucks. GRRRRR!

There's not one person on this site, that's cares about your (I hate iOS) tales. No matter what Apple does, you'll trash it, and bash it...it's what you do. We've heard it a trillion times, and a trillion times, you've done what you do. Stop buying products you don't like, that's a waste of money...dummy.

Do us a favor and deactivate your account. Spend your energy on other stuff rather than act like a psychopath who waits for every Apple article, to post your long essays that are filled with nothing but lies and hate! What you don't realize is that only Samsung fanboys agree with you, and the rest of us see you as a pathetic troll. Get a life.

Couldn't have said it better myself. Although, there would have been a LOT more insults in my reply to him. Can't help it...

Post of the day.

Techie you're the only one who have had a problem with every Apple device with every update in every model you owned. Yet you also posted yesterday that your a fan of Apple products and you own/owned many Apple devices. You're basically THE iSHEEP you redicule others for - "they're buying iPhones even if they're worst ever products and have billioms of problems " (or whatever narrative you spew 100 times a day). If I had your problems I would never buy an iPhone or iPad. Yet you seem to buy it all the time - you're a blind Apple fanboy and you don't even know it. So you're either a liar, or a blind sheep - which one?

Waiting for answer: iSHEEP or a LIAR? Techie?

"So you're either a liar, or a blind sheep - which one?" Why not both? Add in psychopath on top of that, and you got Techie.

I have an ipad mini 2, which is over 4 years old and it doesn't miss a beat with 10.2 yet apparently your pro is struggling.

Are you a psychopath? Apple stopped signing iOS 10.2 on January 30. You're saying you updated your iPad last week to iOS 10.2 which is impossible. LMFAO!

Storage went from 211.67 on 10.2, to 215.69 on 10.3. That's worth updating by itself. Faster and snappier transitions too.

I notice that too. A big not really talked about feature in this update is APFS, Apple file system, starting with 10.3, all iOS devices now use the new APFS file system, which is designed more for modern flash storage like the NVMe in the iPhone and vice versa. Not only that but the new file system improves encryption on the device a lot, files and everything are now more secure then before Most obviously won't notice the effects of this, but it's the little things, and yeah.. everything is definitely more polished now too, which is nice. I have a feeling iOS 11 is gonna be a really good update for iOS, best in years if not the best ever

I was wondering about how the new file system would affect everything. I got 4.8 gigs of storage back after the update. It's really fluid overall too.
