Great series from the legendary Adam Engst. It’s called Bad Apple. This week:
My gripe with Apple isn’t about this new personal settings item’s name; it’s about what it represents, or how Apple tries to group items in the Settings app by function and relationship, making it difficult even for experienced users to scroll to the right spot in the app. Apple may have a rationale for its groupings, but it’s not obvious to anyone outside Apple. All too often, I give up trying to tap my way through Settings and instead pull down to reveal the Search field, before remembering that searches in Settings often fail.
I couldn’t agree more. Settings is a mess, but that may be due to how complex an iPhone is these days.
