DIY Update

20 11 2018

You might know that the 1st-gen Apple Watch doesn’t get Updates any longer. As a proud owner of this dino I’m quite disappointed that my timekeeper ran out of support after just 3 years whereas my 6s Plus, also born in 2015, still is in Apple’s maintenance cycle.

To be honest, it’s not a problem for me as long as my regularly updated iPhone still is able to communicate with the watch. But if you use non-stock apps on the watch it might happen that they stop running because of higher watchOS requirements.

But wait!

Have a look at my watch.
Yep, you’re right, it got a patch.
If Apple can’t do it you must do it yourself.

So I installed my modified watchOS on my jailbroken timekeeper and it now measures the number of members in my awesome group ‘Apple iThings’ on the next-gen network MeWe.

It would be really great if you would also join my group

My group Apple iThings on MeWe

like many other Google+ refugees already did.

How to join

If you aren’t already on MeWe click on JOIN and fill in the required data. You mustn’t use your real name. Confirm your mail address with the mail you get from MeWe. Download the app and search for the open group “Apple iThings”. Join. That’s it.

Looking forward to meet you on MeWe.

The consumer version of Google+ will be discontinued in 2019. All communities, collections, posts, and profiles will be deleted by Google.

So let me invite you to my new group

Apple iThings

on the MeWe network, the first choice for Google+ refugees.

Looking forward to meet you on MeWe.

Thanks in advance.

I use your mobile app for iOS since years on my iPhone and wrote many Feedbacks and Reviews but you didn’t give me what I need as a moderator in a big, a very big community.

So I’m back again with an updated view on the issues hampering to do a great job. We mods do the work in our leisure time. We are not on your payroll although we are working hard for your image.

You don’t want us to mutate into John Doe or A.N. Onymus for our beloved ones, don’t you?

So my request is to support us by adding reasonable features which let us extend our leisure time.

Your members add value, your moderators do it also so now it’s your turn to massively improve your app. I’m waiting for some of my mentioned flaws since years.

To be fair, you gave us some useful features in the 2017 updates but it’s still annoying to not have all features in the app which are available in a browser.

Thanks for 💧ping by.
