One frustration with upgrading phones is slowly discovering all the apps/services whose data didn't come forward. (I've now turned on iCloud Sync for my health data, and fortunately was able to recover my weight records from my smart scale.) https://t.co/o10V6Riur4

https://t.co/44xTSGa4Pv has a "keep me signed in" checkbox. If I don't turn that on, then I log in, close the window, and open a new window on icloud, I'm still logged in.https://t.co/IthDETA63e behaves the same.

Am I misunderstanding something? (Safari 12.0 on Mojave.)

Is there any way to make Siri not be chatty? Especially on the phone, which I just lifted, and newer phones can even see that I’m looking at the screen.

"You can store more than one eSIM in your iPhone, but you can use only one at a time."

(You can receive calls at both regular SIM and whichever eSIM is active at the moment.)

This could potentially be pretty awesome.https://t.co/4B8GwgWwJL

Dreamhost recently announced that they are dropping support for catch-all email addresses (which I absolutely rely on), and simultaneously their email service has gotten quite flaky for me. (Pretty sure they just don’t want to be in the email business.)

Trying to think of some good examples of wizard-type flows on macOS, using largely-standard macOS controls. Any suggestions? Primary curiosity is regarding keeping the flow buttons (Next / Back) in a separate unmoving area, vs sliding them in/out with the parent views.
