It’s strange that Sync v2 is launched without anyone testing what happens to users that have a fully functioning device-combination that will stop working (temporarily) after the launch
I have a Windows 10 and iPhone syncing perfectly, but suddenly my PC claims that I need to reconfigure sync. Fine, I have no problems with this.
I choose “I have a Sync code” because it was working already and I am asked to provide this code.
I go to my mobile in order to get this code, and BOTH devices are already configured and in place on my mobile?
Why did my PC leave and stopped syncing but my phone is unaware of this?
Never mind, I remove everything and set it up again.
The setup process works perfe… wait, the devices don’t “see” each other?
…continue with frustration…
I find out by going online and manually finding this information that a new version of Sync has been released and oh, Desktop and Android devices will sync but iOS will not.
It baffles me to no end that nobody is thinking about the user experience when deploying major changes like this for a feature that worked fine but is KNOWN to break after deployment.
Did nobody think to have the desktop show a simple explanation?
If only to stop irrelevant “Sync does not work, help!” posts (and my own post btw)
It only takes a “Don’t worry, ignore sync for now, wait until iOS is updated” message, problem solved proactively
