Respekt für die 'lange' Kompatibilität, z.B. IPad Air 2. Das kam Oktober 2014(!) und wird damit bis Herbst 2021 7 Jahre Updates erhalten haben. Find ich klasse.

Missing iMac (21,5", Ende 2013) in macOS 11 Big Sur is compatible list

klaus ditze, 2020-06-23

You mean you have one and it is not compatible?

Volker Weber, 2020-06-23

Ja, die lange Unterstützung des iPad Air 2 finde ich auch klasse. Liegt vermutlich auch daran, dass es bereits 2GB RAM hat (war damals das erste iOS Gerät mit 2GB - das iPhone hat erst 2015 als 6s 2GB bekommen).

Ich hab meins seit etwas mehr als 5 Jahren. Akku ist noch gut. Und ipadOS 13 läuft absolut flüssig. Warum also wegwerfen?

Manfred Wiktorin, 2020-06-23

Damit sind die Tage meiner Watch Series 4 bzw. iPhone X also gezählt, sofern CarKey von Skoda überhaupt unterstützt wird. 😬

Markus Mews, 2020-06-23

Das Carkey kommt nur in neue Autos.

Volker Weber, 2020-06-23

Dass sie bei iOS und iPadOS keine Geräte rausfallen lassen freut mich sehr.

Dass mein noch immer genutztes MBP von 2012 (erste Version mit Retina-Display) nicht mehr unterstützt wird bedauere ich zwar, überrascht mich aber leider nicht.

Bei „Safari Translations“ dachte ich zunächst überrascht, dass sich dies auf die neue Translate App bezieht; geht aber hoffentlich wohl bloß um das Übersetzen von Webseiten. Wobei mich auch dort die Einschränkung auf US und Kanada überrascht.

What I would *love* is some small USB dongle for my Windows-based Thinkpad (which I need and like to use for most of my "real stuff") that supports usage of e.g., AirPods Pro as if it was an Apple device, with all the easy and fast connection and device switching. Should be doable, with some smart hardware in the dongle and software in the driver?!

Jonas Rathert, 2020-06-24

Nicht so einfach. Es braucht iCloud und eine sichere Übertragung und Speicherung der Koppelungsdaten. Ich verstehe, was du willst, aber das wirst du nicht bekommen, so wie es kein iMessage/Facetime für Android oder Windows gibt.
