Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4

It’s October 5, 2018 and this means Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4 is released.

The packaging of Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4 is different than its Series 3 counterpart. I will add the comparison photo later, if when I find the box.

I ordered Space Gray Apple Watch Nike+ with Anthracite/Black Nike Sport Band. The use of word “Anthracite” reminds me of the band Anthrax, not the bacteria.

There are boxes inside the packaging, the Watch and the charging cable+adapter.

The Apple Watch itself has its own packing sleeve.

The Anthracite/Black Nike Sport Band has its own packaging.

I bought Blue Horizon Sport Band to use with the Space Gray Apple Watch Nike+ Series 4. The combination looks nice.

110,479 7-Workout Week

This must be a record with the Activity Awards on the iPhone.

Let’s do the math here:

110,479 week
110,479 x 7 days
773,353 days

1,461  days in 4 years – including February 29 on the fourth year.

(773,353 / 1,461) x 4 = 2,177.325 years

iOS 12: Wi-Fi Bug

I encountered a similar bug in iOS 10 when the iPhone was having trouble activating Wi-Fi right waking up. The issue persisted after clean install iOS and restoring from backup. Obviously the bug persisted in the backup itself, both in iTunes and iCloud. Restoring and setting up the iPhone as new device would definitely eliminated the problem; but it did not fix the bug.

I filed bug report and Apple Engineering team asked me to send diagnostic data of my phone. Subsequently, this particular bug was fixed.

A similar bug was introduced in iOS 12 beta 7 where the iPhone became unresponsive. Shortly after, Apple released iOS 12 beta 8 and the Wi-Fi bug became prominent. The behavior can be reproduced by turning off and turning on the iPhone. After unlocking the iPhone, Wi-Fi would not activate. This bug also present when iPhone lost Wi-Fi connection.

The bug still persists after reseting the iPhone, installing iOS 12 and restoring from the iCloud or iTunes backup. The bug is not present when the iPhone is set up as a new device.

Setting up the iPhone as new device means losing a lot of data that lives only in the iPhone backup.
