iPhone 7 and iOS 10: Let's Chat About It

iPhone Launch.PNG

 

 Hello Community!

 

As you all have heard by now, the iPhone 7 is coming Smiley Happy.  As a lifelong iPhone user, I always look forward to these launches.  As part of the Community team though, this is my first time being able to have a great discussion with all the other fans out there.  I wanted to start this thread to be able to get the community together and make this the best iPhone launch ever!

 

For those that are curious, my name is Tim and I have been with AT&T for 17 years now.  You might know me from such handles as @ATTMobilityCare and @ATTTimCS.  I actually started when I was 19, and still see myself as 19, not 36 Smiley Happy.  I am an avid gamer, and love technology.  My other big passions are movies and my daughters.  I have turned them both into gamers at this point lol.  We have iPhones and iPads throughout the house so these OS updates and device launches are pretty exciting around our house.

 

What are you most excited for?  Have you already preordered?  I will try and be a pretty active participant in the discussion and answer questions and concerns when I can.  With that said, I also want this to be a great place where other fans can talk and share their thoughts!

 

See below for some of the most helpful links and let’s get started.

 

Thanks so much,

 

Tim, AT&T Community Specialist

@ATTTimeCS - Thanks for starting this thread!  I too am an avid iPhone/Pad/Pencil/Macbook/Pencil user and my family is as well.  I almost hate to say that we have TOO MANY devices in our home (never hurts to have a backup though 🙂 )

 

Perhaps you can answer a question re: my calendar with iOS 10.  As you know, when you update (or get a new phone and install with a backup) you have to enter your credentials for all your apps.  I am having a problem with bringing my google calendar into my iPhone calendar. Is there a way to do this as I hate having so many calendar apps to manage?

 

Ideally, I would like to use the iPhone calendar app to pull in my other calendars (basically just google) and leave it at that and be able to make updates via both calendars and sync accordingly.   I used to be able to do this but can't seem to do it now.  Is this a problem with the iOS or have I just forgotten how to do it.

 

Any help would be greatly apprecated!

Folks, might be out of line for this thread but...has anyone experienced problems with the camera on iPhone 7 w/ iOS 10?   Seems that sometimes I will have to shut the camera down 3-4 times before it will actually start focusing on subject at hand rather than have just some random blurred image appear.  This is quite frustrating when trying to capture a quick moment.  Maybe it's a flaw with my hardware but I'm not sure.  Maybe this is something others are experiencing as well and is being resolved with a software updated.

Hi just read multiple article regarding the different performance in the iPhone 7 plus. I receive the intel version which is the slower performer. How can I switch to the Qualcomm that perform better?

So over the past week, starting right before the iOS 10.0.1 release, my phone started losing it's data connection.  The iOS 10.1 update didn't fix the issue.  I've noticed that it seems to happen more often with certain apps.  The data connection will drop out (LTE will disappear) and then it will come back and go out again.  I've tried many of the solutions I could find like toggling airplane mode, resetting my phone's network, turning data off and then on again, changing from voice and data to just data, basically everything except a hard reset of the phone.  Even removing the SIM card and reinserting it.  Is there a common issue out there with data internet connections dropping?

Yep, I get the same thing from time to time. Like you I tried everything. It's an annoyance, although significant, not a show topper. Once you get it back on th network, it's good for awhile. Then it starts again. I'm a public iOS beta tester and have not gotten a fix yet. I've reported it a few time. Maybe the next beta?

Hi, I have the new iPhone 7 Plus and it's been nothing but a nightmare since I received it. 1 - Dropped calls and no service constantly 2 - Text messages failing to send constantly 3 - Bars keep dropping on the iPhone until your almost losing service. AT&T is aware of all these problems and I have been working with them to get them fixed for a month now. They have escalated my iPhone problems to a higher level and I'm still waiting for them to contact me. From what I was told, I'm not the only one having trouble with the new iPhone 7, there are a lot of people with the same problems. Then to top it off, this new iPhone was a trade and AT&T is claiming they still haven't received my trade, even after I gave them the tracking number showing that my trade was delivered. Good grief, I hope nobody else is going through the same problems. So much for being a loyal long time customer.

They have a deal that I believe ends today. Switch Non AT&T carrier over to your account a get a free iPhone. I did just that with my daughters phone and did not quality because it was 4 days before the promo. Why didn't they tell me? I would have gladly waited. So much for taking care of there 12 plus year customers! Can you hear me now?

I have had problems with my iPhone 7 plus since I got it in October that I never had problems with my iPhone 6s plus. I've been with AT&T since 2007 and I have never had these problems before. Whenever I face time or speak on the phone I can hear fine but the other person hears every other word or sometimes none at all of me, it's a one sided conversation that is me saying can you hear me?? I also have only one bar or no service at all in my house or anywhere that I used to have 3 or 4 bars. This happens with or without a case. I called Apple, they tell me it's a software issue and AT&T needs to issue a cellular update fix. Is anyone else having this issue? Does anyone know when this will be fixed??

Anyone have Bluetooth issues with iPhone 7 plus? Mine drops connectivity repeatedly. Having to reconnect while driving is a distraction so I don't. Still. It's not limited to car it drops at home with all brands of bluetooth speakers/headsets. AT&T attitude was keep paying your bill but take your problem to Apple.
