Caesar from San Bernardino, CA

Episode 1382 (1:52:35)

Apple iOS 10

Caesar and his family all use iMessage because they all have iPhones. When he shares videos, though, the quality is terrible. Leo says that the network is trying to save bandwidth. It's better to upload the videos to YouTube and then share a link. He could also share a link via iCloud. The better solution would be to get everyone to use WhatsApp.
