Has anyone been able to get Audio Sharing to work?

It was one of the main features announced back in June, but no one’s been talking about it this week.

I can get the “bring another device close to your phone” pop-up, but nothing happens after I do that.

Clearly I’m becoming an old.

That is part of 13.1 according to this - https://appleinsider.com/articles/19/09/20/audio-sharing-in-ios-13-to-more-beats-headwear

Updated my watch last night and now I’m getting text alerts on my watch and then on my phone, with noise, 5 seconds later.

I feel like I just saw this picture on Facebook or Instagram or something. Which suggests we might know each other....

I think he's trying to tell you that he lives underneath your trampoline when the lights are off.

If anybody is wondering, Apple Watch 5 has the same battery and CPU as the 4, mainly just has a different display.

Which is exactly why they disco'd the 4.  Can't take away from new unit sales. Always on display is a feature that I don't see being worthy of an upgrade.

iOS  13.1, Apple TVOS 13, and the new iPad OS are all out.  The new TVOS allows you to connect an XBOX or PS4 controller to the Apple TV.

13 is running extremely smooth on my iphone 7 but eating battery like a motherfucker. I'm going to have to get an external battery case.

They released a 13.1.1 update today to address the battery I think. 
 

Just got the 11 and this bitch seems to run hot.

Download the update, battery is running much better.  Between the initial release and this update, better drain was a shitshow.

My Watch 5 started with just horrible battery life, but it’s settled in nicely. I haven’t owned one before this so I can’t compare it to any previous devices. Probably average 3-4% an hour.

Could turn always on screen to off for a little more, but I like it.

Battery on 11 Pro has been really good.

Not really digging the price, but I’ve been waiting for this and will definitely be shelving my much loved 1st generation AirPods shortly. Those have legitimately been one of the best tech items that I’ve purchased in awhile.

I imagine that they’ll be in short supply in a day or two. Total jelly here.

I ordered mine this morning. Sounds like there is good supply at the stores.

I want to see some reviews on how they drown out airplane noise and, more importantly, airplane passenger noise. I know the ANC can’t be at the level of QC35s or Sony1000x but if they are pretty good at it I’m in.

No flights scheduled for me, but they completely drown out the sound of my truck, traffic, and my radio while driving. Did it just as a test and was blown away. I think you will still get some hum on the plane tho.

if you fools wait a few months, there will be almost perfect chinese clones at a fraction of the price. the airpods 1 and 2 clones are damned near perfect for $30. i bought my wife and daughter clone sets. when compared to the original airpod 2 that i bought awhile back for my other daughter, you almost cannot determine the difference. physically, you cannot determine a difference. the only differences i saw were the real ones lasted about 5 hours, the clones last about 4. and the speaker call quality is worse on the clones but not too noticeably. the already cloned the W1 chip. certainly the difference do not amount to 4-5X increase for the price of the real ones. 

the only thing new that they'll have to clone with the new one is the ANC which shouldn't be a big deal since there are already plenty of wireless earbuds which have ANC.

FYI; those of you with an 11 or 11 Pro (Max as well) and like Apple cases, well, this is your lucky day.  Amazon has every color, in silicon and leather, at a significant savings:

Amazon is now offering all-time low prices on Apple’s latest iPhone 11/Pro/Max cases from $23.99. Free shipping is available for Prime members or in orders of $25+. There are multiple colors available in nearly every instance, so be sure to check out all of the listings at each link below. Here’s a full breakdown of pricing:

iPhone 11:

Clear Case: $24 (Reg. $35)

Silicone Cases: $24 (Reg. $39)

iPhone 11 Pro:

Clear Case: $24 (Reg. $39)

Silicone Cases: $24 (Reg. $39)

Leather Cases: $30 (Reg. $49)

Best Buy is matching select listings at this time, marking a return to the lowest prices we’ve tracked to date. This is a rare chance to save on Apple’s first-party accessories, and frankly, a rather unheard of discount just a few after these products were announced at September’s keynote event.

Looks like the iPad Air almost replaces the Pro. How long does it take after launch for deals to start happening? The 256GB wifi Air is $749.

a few weeks ago they were running deals for the ipad air 3. it involved bundled deals with Airpod Pros and Gen 2, basically about $150+ off. i haven't seen any lately.

you guys need to start regularly consulting slickdeals.net, or at least set up alerts. if you care about saving money or buying shit just because you can get a deal, then that's your site.

I want the 256GB as well.

Good deals, like the Apple.com refurbished deals, will probably take 4-6 months.

But, current iPad Pros that are refurbished are down around $750 with 256GB, even if they are a generation older, and that's preferable.

But damn those Airs are nice.

I just bought my wife the Iwatch 5 last week. I hadn’t followed the watch closely, clearly, but for some reason I thought the 5 was recently released. Now, it’s old crap.

If you bought it from Apple, you can still return it.
