For 2018, I get organized. Here's a bit of stress relief, a list of things in Apple software that distract enough that I made a list.
In no particular order (yet)
Pls. stop asking Sierra users to upgrade
I have a lot of purchase decisions to deal with already, getting me to do a free macOS upgrade should be low on your list, and mine.
High Sierra has been out less than a year, and there have been fixes to problems that are not acceptable, like:
Apple News: add filtering to the top-level displays
I could be as simple as a "blacklist" or "whitelist" feature, but you gotta stop blindly forcing to see the headlines in the iOS Widget. For example, why is Fox News and People "Trending" 99% of the time, when I've only subscribed to
- New York Times
- Wall Street Journal
- Washington Post
(From tinkering, "Trending" might be suppressed or replaced with "For You" if you down vote a couple offending articles. Still, not appropriate for kids, out-of-box).
Provide a UX exit from the lock screen camera mode
It was really great when you made it easy to flip to camera, but now I do it accidentally. Can you make an easy (gestural) way to get out?
Provide the "go back" link to the previous app when you accidentally tap the colored status bar
I do this a lot when my device is running the "Personal Hotspot".
