    Any tips about the new passkey feature?

    Steve: Gonna have to wait for some sites to actually use it first. I think a few do, but I haven't run into any yet. After some major sites start using it I'll probably do a video. Until then it is hard to demonstrate (or even try it out).

    My ios 16 doesn't seem to have the remove duplicates in Photos. Was this removed before the final release?

    Jerry: Either you don't have any duplicates, or you haven't waited long enough for Photos to check for them.

    Gary, I don't see the Search button at the bottom of the home screen. Does it have to be turned on somewhere? thx

    I’ve noticed since upgrading to iOS 16 that my battery drains at a phenomenal rate. I have a relatively new iPhone 13 Pro and it has a battery level of 100%. Never had the problem before upgrade.

    Les: Have you checked in Settings, Battery to see which apps are using the most power?

    Sorry Gary but in Settings, Home Screen, the only choices are: Add Newly Downloaded Apps to Home Screen or App Library, and show Notification Badges in the App Library. I also searched in Settings but don't see that option.

    They ruined the Contacts app. Groups are now Lists. Cannot select multiple Lists - we could select 2+ Groups in past versions.

    Robert: Just a name change. By selecting multiple groups, what do you mean? What context? In Mail I can add multiple groups to an email just as easily as before.

    Does iOS16 contain a native app for scanning business cards directly into contacts?

    3 weeks ago

    Jonathan: No, nothing built into iOS for that.

    We could go to the main "Groups" screen with "All iCloud" at the top. Below that title I had other Groups of people/numbers/emails: Residents [where I live] + Family + Birthdays [because only ONE birthday per family of 2+] + Church people + Staff [where I live] + Medical people. All these are different Groups to keep them separate. I could select 3 or 4 of these Groups and view those as if they were one Group. In ios16 you can ONLY select one Group at a time. This is a Lost usable feature.

    Robert: Ah, I see. Never used them like that (Don't use Groups at all, come to think of it). Well, send feedback to Apple so they know you will miss it.

    It gets worst at Apple Feedback: there is NO category in "iOS and iPadOS" section for Contacts or Calendar.

    Robert: Just put it in "iPhone."

    I have over 10.000 photos so I know there are duplicates.
    But when I scroll to utilities, I do not have "duplicates"??

    Fred: Either you don't have any duplicates (possible, why not?) or you simply haven't waited long enough for them to be checked. Wait a day or two.
