      As I am very hard of hearing( as a result of R&R drummer in 60’s) This looks like a handy tool. ie I cannot hear my doorbell- will this drain battery over time ?

      Thank you

      there is a PICTURES folder that is a SYSTEM folder. Perhaps this is the issue?

      @redknight

      The following link discusses KB4569751  and why you may NOT want to install it. Ever.

      I do not get why .net framework is constantly being updated and previewed! Why do we need this .net framework at all? I’m sure there is a reason but I have nver seen anyone question it- just install it cause msft says so. Perplexing. mebbe I’ll do a search-(NEVER google it- I had my google removed 😉

      Thats FAST! Just for my info (and my phone is always on wifi even tho boost doesnt support wifi calling) I just ran speed test on wifi- 50mbs

      Oh well!

      and its associated w/ google so another reason for me to NOT use this capability  I am google free forever! I tried to update last night thru itunes on my win10pro but for some reason my FIOS dl speed to apple was <25 kbs!! Hardwired. I stopped the download after about an hour and 15 min. And ran a speed test- 100+mbs!!!

      read an article about whats new in this new version and the author only talked about the covid connection. So I’m in no hurry to get this update. Actually I have it stored on my pc but I think I’ll wait till next month for IOS 14.

      Also, my cell provider-boost/dish does not support lte connection on my new iphone 11 (which I purchased from them in apr) I suspect(not certain) the speed on my phone OTA would be much slower- I only get 2 bars at best. Likely will go to Verizon but must research cell reception in my neighborhood first.

      Is it me or is this constant upgrade/update/patch routine on IOS and win10 getting stale?

      According to this article, the only change in this update is covid tracing? 4 gb of code for that? I have patched/updated IOS software as often as I have patched win 10 since April this year. And I have been de googled for quite some time YAY!!!! So perhaps I’ll wait to install this-

      Curious, what speed does your phone have? Is it LTE technology or wiFi?

      Thnks Alex!

      according to Task Mangr Performance my ethernet is delivering from 7 kbs to 25 kbs…thats just stupid slow ..is it the Apple server???

      Must be…stopped the Dl and ran a speed test-  105 mbs download. Am dl’ing the file direct to PC and its taking about 3.5 minutes! Now to find out what to do with it! What a waste of time- I thought Apple was a 1st class operation. Thinking back to April when I got this phone, I have put almost as many updates as on win 10 pro!!! Now that’s a scary proposition.

      In spite of this, I want to thank Alex for the info! Do appreciate your postings on IOS news!!

      Updating via itunes- it REALLY is taking a LONG time!! I use FIOS 100mbs

      up/down hardwired- It has been over 45 minutes dl’ing and still going! I hate to think what it would take over wifi or even OTA- my provider does NOT support LTE connection! Changing soon I believe.

      It took over a year for my lenovo e545 to be ready for the first iteration of win10-it seems Lenovo is STILL not keeping current! I have since switched to 2 acer models and am much happier. The lenovo started to overheat and it seems to be the mobo. Piece o crud (self edited for how I REALLY feel)
