While I agree that the new file system is a great improvement, I'm not sure I want it this minute. In other words, this sounds like something I could have waited for until the next iThingie I buy. Unfortunately we all know that Apple upon release of iOS 10.3 will be unrelenting, and uber annoying in their attempts to force us into updating. I don't blame them for that attitude as it makes maintenance of iOS easier to have people using the latest greatest, but still....I do wish Apple treated iOS users more like they do Mac users. Sierra has been out since last summer and they never bother me to update my Macs from El Capitan to Sierra. I got a few emails telling me how great they thought Sierra was, but nothing annoying.

In fairness, iOS upgrades aren't all that intrusive. My iPad Air 2 is on a version of iOS a couple of releases old, and I get a "do you want to upgrade" pop-up perhaps every couple of weeks. All I do is tap the "remind me later" link.

It is intrusive to me because I have to tap that GD remind me later button every day in the few weeks immediately following the update release. And it puts a permanent reminder on the Settings icon as I recall. It is like the solicitor at your front door who won't leave or quit ringing your doorbell until you pull a Secondhand Lions on him and put a shotgun in his face. It is definitely annoying, at least here in the USA. Perhaps Apple isn't as anal retentive about it in other countries.

An old issue returns with Mac OS X

This is a Mac OS X El Capitan issue, but another reason I just don't feel comfortable being an early adopter of updates. This is the third time in the past year this issue has occurred. Apple will update an app and push it out to the App Store on my MacBook Pro. Usually it is an update to iTunes, but not always. I install this update. Then the next day they tell me to install the exact same update again, so I do. This continues for a few to several day, becoming extremely annoying rather quickly. Well it happened again (third time now) this time with the iTunes 12.6 update. On March 22 the App Store asked me to install and I did. Again on March 23 the App Store asked me to install the same update and I did. I fully expect to be asked again today and even a few more times after today. If Apple can screw up something like this, then surely they can screw up with big updates like iOS 10.3.

This snafu is particularly annoying because iTunes is a crappy app. It always has been. I rarely use the the darn thing except to backup my iThingies. I don't back up to the iCloud. I don't like it for a photo library, or music library (I'm a Pandora fan), are for anything really.
