I have NEVER had succes with Kindle or Audible in transferring to a new phone. This time, I just deleted everything from downloads on both. What often happens is the Kindle book will show as not being authorized, and you need to delete and re-download. PLUS there is a benefit if a book has restrictions on installs. If you remove it from the old device, it will NOT count against the install count on the new device.Tell me about it! I've spent all weekend in school.
There is so much more that is new when it comes to where things are. And the biggest issue was the restore did not really restore everything. I had my entire library of audible books from two clouds downloaded to my 6+ and the restore didn't move any of them. I had to download again everything one at a time. The Apple Pay had to be reloaded. 4 CC was pretty easy but my BJ's card required I get interviewed by a bank CSR before they would approve the new install of their CC to my XS Max and then again onto the Apple watch. That process took 45 minutes. No Passwords were restored and I have to launch each app and re-enter the PW and UID.
Next, I'm in a learning curve on charging the phone from a power bank that will carry easily with the new phone. Specifications are horrible on these. I have one I should send back now because it doesn't fit in the case. Thickness was listed as 0.31" but the truth is it is 0.87 thick. And the top is rounded so the phone slides off.
I will say the battery life on my XSMAX is very good. I fully charged it up overnight from 20% to 100% with the wireless stand. After 4 hours this morning of on time it is only down to 96%.
I really love not having that Home Button. Face ID is much faster and easier to use than I thought it would be, especially with apps that used to require finger print scan. The apps just launch now yet refuse to launch when my wife tries. There is a process you can set up a secondary Face ID I want to test out later. That way my wife can access the XSMAX if I'm not around.
I have used a wireless stand for a year with the 8 plus, and the only time I have a problem is if the phone wasn't centered properly. In which case I plug it into a lightning cable connected to a USB-C charger, and FAST charging takes over.
I am liking my XS more and more, but a small part of me would exchange it for an XSMax. and maybe when I actually use one, I will. But so far, this has been a good weekend of playing with new Apple toys.
