iCloud does not store and sync text messages. The only way to transfer texts from one iphone to another is to restore from a back up of the old phone to the new phone.
iCloud does in fact store and sync messages. You need at least iOS 11.4 to sync to the cloud on an iOS device and I think the latest OS, Mojave, for the Mac:

The only rumor I've heard about this years iPhones so far is two way charging like Samsung has.

"Apple's 2019 iPhones are going to have a two-way wireless charging feature that will allow the iPhone to charge other devices like the AirPods, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo again confirmed in a report sent out to investors today."

But it swivels and becomes your new best friend.

Looking forward to all the new updates, some good new features in the pipeline. RIP iTunes.

Is 60Hz refresh rate normal for those editing monitors? I know they say don't buy a TV that has less than 240 now...

There is more to calibrated monitors than refresh rate when it comes to editing.

alright, a few years back we got iPhone 7s. Evidently there is a widespread problem that affects cell service. Within 2 weeks two of the three phones had the cell service die. I had to bring them to the Apple store to have them send off. Irritating. The third is starting to experience the same issue. If your 7 starts showing no service, just take it to the Apple will not resolve itself.

Has anyone with a MacBook noticed recently (since last update?) that when you autoload your login info on websites, you are automatically logged in without clicking the login tab? It logs you in before there is an opportunity for you to check "keep me logged in", ect. Any way to prevent this?

Anybody have an Apple Watch or a Fitbit? I'm looking into getting a watch simply to track my workouts. Since Series 4 of the Apple Watch is discontinued, I'm not ready to put down $400 on an Apple Watch for just exercise. I'll never use it to check or reply to text messages, use Apple Pay, etc. However, the Series 3 watch is around $200 and appears to offer more of what I'm looking for (also, would buy GPS model, not GPS + Cellular). So the price between a Fitbit Charger 4 and Apple Watch Series 3 is about $50. Also, the Fitbit has sleep tracking, which is a feature I'm curious about. Anybody have any feedback on either/both?
