Greg lost his iPhone and wants to know how to use Find My iPhone to locate it. Leo says as long as Find My iPhone is turned on, he should be OK. If it was put it in Airplane Mode, it won't broadcast because the radios are turned off, though. It's probably lost, and even if someone could find it, Greg has a complicated password and it'll wipe the device after 10 attempts.
Mike had issues with his Subaru and his iPhone not reading text messages. He finally got a notification that the issue is with Subaru's Sync and it needs to be updated. So at least the mystery is solved!
Scott has an iPhone 6 and he uses it to get around while hauling equipment, but lately it hasn't been working well -- ever since the last update. Leo thinks that Scott's iPhone has a damaged GPS receiver. He hasn't heard reports of GPS problems after updating, so he has a hunch it's a physical hardware issue. Scott should bring it into the Apple Store.
Carlos has an iPhone 6 and a GoPro camera. He wants to be able to upload photos from both devices to his iCloud Photo Library and his Google Photos library. Leo says that's easy with the GoPro app on the iPhone. Then he can save them to his camera roll and upload it to iCloud. Then he can use the Google Photos app to upload all of them. The other option is to plug the microSD card into his computer and upload them that way.
Mike has an iPhone that he connects to his Subaru. It used to read his text messages, but now it doesn't work. Leo says it's likely been disabled while driving. It could be that the latest version of iOS doesn't support that function by design. The chatroom says that the car software may not have been updated. Leo's more of the mind that Apple disabled those features to guard against distracted driving.
John wants to know if he can delete the multiple backups on iCloud. Leo says he can manage his iCloud storage and delete the backups, but he'll want to be sure he has another backup on his computer first. Then once he has that done, he's free to delete them. Then he can turn off the backup to iCloud on those other devices.
Ben decided to make the switch from Android to iPhone and he thinks he's made a mistake. He did it because everyone else in the family is on the iPhone, but he doesn't get to iMessage with groups. Leo says he can't because Apple's Messages isn't cross platform. Apple doesn't care -- they want to lock users into the iPhone ecosystem.
Chris has an iPhone 6 and with iOS 10.1, and he's getting strange colors when he resets it. Leo says that is a symptom of "touch disease," which is from a faulty video chip used. It misbehaves and starts spewing random data that can eventually get worse. Apple hasn't acknowledged it yet, although thousands are complaining about it. Even Apple Store techs are saying it's a common feature they are finding that requires repair, and Apple is charging to repair it if the phone is out of warranty.
Shar wants a new iPhone but what about her headphones? Leo says that the new headphones will have a lightning connection to plug into the phone, and there will be an adapter for older headphones. Unfortunately, it's not possible to listen and charge at the same time without an additional adapter. Not having a headphone jack is less of a big deal than Shar may think, though. Of course, the way around this is to use Bluetooth headphones.
Greg wants to know if he uses a magnet to connect his phone to his dashboard, will it affect his GPS? Leo says no, it won't. In fact, many cases, like Rokform's, can use a magnet to enable you to do just that and Leo has not seen any issues. It could screw up the compass, if he's relying on that, but it shouldn't affect his GPS.
