thanks. i’ve been using Macs for over thirty years, and i have a lot more problems with the last few OSes than i ever used to. i could write pages about it! but especially with the phone. apparently (as yet unverified) the latest update will kill the phone if you’ve had the screen replaced by a non-authorised person. this may be why my iPhone is now dead.
and they slow down old iPhones “to save the battery”, so why does the phone always go back to full power mode after charging, when i always select low power mode? this is Apple wanting me to buy a new battery! or preferably a new phone!
so what i actually want to do is firstly, use the phone without a Google account (which i’ve been shown documentation about), as i didn’t even know i “needed” one, and then to load my contacts and calendar (haven’t even thought about the calendar yet!) onto it from my computer. i hope that isn’t asking too much!
also, i’d like to be able to synchronise the phone and the computer, if that’s possible, once it’s all set up?
