So I just got an iphone 12. Lol, I kept pushing my memory limit on my old iphone.
I had everything copied to my new phone, but I didn’t have to get rid of the Dexcom ap on my older phone. I just completely shut off my old phone and did a restart on my new phone and once it was up and running turned back on my old phone and everything was fine. It’s not reading on my old phone of course, but the ap is still there if I want to go back to it. But I am not having a problem with losing the connection like @Dave1 did.
The Dexcom ap is running fine and so is Clarity. When I called they said they hadn’t gotten approval yet for the new IOS system and couldn’t guarantee it would work. The only problem I can spot is I when I get a low alert my old iphone it used to read the BG level with the alert. Now an alert sounds and it just says Dexcom notification alert. Hopefully that gets fixed, I do have it set up to give a continuous reading on the home screen, but there seems to be a delay in changing that reading.
The camera quality is better, it’s got a few nicer adjustments for the camera usage. The battery is definitely longer lasting.
But the thing I hate the most? And I would almost go back to the old iphone because of it (but I really want the memory) is the face recognition instead of a print. No button which was easier to grab and use your finger or enter in your code. This you have to hold up your phone to have it recognize you, then try to swipe up the screen to see if it did, if it doesn’t then there’s a slight delay before the numbers come up to enter your passcode. And at night forget it, guarantee you have to enter your code. Much more time consuming half the time and when it works it’s the same as a thumbprint. So what is the point??? Because most of the time it’s more work.
Next I miss the button. It’s a little of a pain trying to swipe up some of the screens instead of just pressing a button. Did they even put it in the hands of normal people to try out their new inventions?
Edit to add…
When I was in the room with my iphone 8 it started reading my Dexcom again and when I went back into the room where my iphone 12 was it started reading it again.
