From what I've been told by Apple insiders it all depends on having the 'right guy' handle your case/claim. It's a random thing.

It could be the boldest experiment in advertising history.

I was a victim of bendgate on my 6plus. Had babied it for 2 months while it progressively got worse and worse. It wasn't very apparent visually but was non responsive on the front screen. It had gotten extremely bad. So 2 days before I had finally made an apt w/ the Genius Bar, I dropped my damn phone and had a crack through the center of the screen. I thought there goes my chances of getting my bendgate issue taken care of because of the crack. Mind you I didn't have AppleCare and was just over 13 months from purchase date.

I went in anyways, and the guy didn't even look twice at the screen crack. Issued me a new phone immediately. Was in and out in 10min. Now I'm looking into some type of phone cover than will help against the bend. I feel my free chances have been used up, should anything else go wrong in the future. Anyone recommend a rugged case that doesn't bend when used in ones front pocket?

Has anyone noticed the screen on the 6s scratches incredibly easily? I didn't use a case or screen protector for my 5s and its screen never had w scratch on it. My 6s has all sorts of little fine scratches all over it.

I vaguely recall them making a switch from gorilla glass.

Yup, glass on 6/6s is much worse than 5/5s

It's happened to me since the original iPhone to my current 6 - all with the original Apple dock. I don't recall an issue with just the cable + Apple's own USB adapter or laptop.

It's like the blowing the original Nintendo NES cartridge story. I wouldn't care.

FYI, there's an impedance measurement that iPhones do (both dock and Lightining) and third party cables likely don't impedance match within Apple's tolerances, but on action, with gunk in there, neither do Apple's own accessories.

Anyone who owns multiple iOS devices ever had a random iMessage appear on one but not the other? I turned on my iPad 3 the other day for the first time in a couple weeks and noticed a message appeared in a chat thread with this girl I am talking to that never showed on my iPhone. It's not a huge deal, but made me wonder if anything else might have been missed over time.

i have a similar problem with my apple devices where i message this hot chick, and when i check my iphone no response. and then when i check my imessages on my macbook, still no response. anyone else have this problem with their apple product?
post #2097 of 3215
No probs here. I only have an iPhone 6s and a MacBook Air from 2010, which also receives texts.

Both sync up rather nicely.

Actually, now dat I think about it, my watch will sometimes show iMessage images but they won't show up on my phone. Very odd.

Happens all the time. Be happy you're not on 80 versions of Android. The stack/parameter passing is tricky. In my case, my iPhone and MacBook Pro perfectly sync, but my iPad Air never does.

They put a DRM chip in the Apple cables and/or chargers now have they, to ensure that you only use their own expensive ones....booo!

Ever tried finding a third-party charger for a Macbook?
