Any recommendations for spam text blocking software?
I get about 10 a day and the Apple way is quite the tedious for how to block a caller

No recommendations but I think Apple is including an easier way to deal with spam texts in the next iOS release.

All the olds who are bellyaching like Marco Arment and Quinn Nelson can go spit.

Note: you're coming into it sometime after the first developer beta, and being weirdly combative about it.

Sorry! Didn’t mean to sound that way. I meant it to be sarcastically snarky. I’m also an old and very set in my ways with a lot of other things.

More recently I’ve seen a bunch of videos of how busted the new Settings app actually is and it needs a LOT of work still. I was only commenting that (for me) the layout make a lot more sense - but again, I’m fairly new to macOS (<2 years) and I always seemed to have trouble finding what I was looking for in the old Preferences app. Plus, I’m also weird in that I like a consistent look and feel across the Apple OS’s. But that’s just me.

OK Messages, I either need you to stop giving me the popup saying you're going to delete this conversation from all my devices or I need you to actually delete said conversation off my other devices. The spam texts are less annoying than you lying to me in a popup window 3-4 times for each one.

So much this. Also, stop asking ‘Report Junk’ every time I delete a text. Email programs don’t throw a modal pop up every time asking ‘Is it spam?’ every time I delete an email.

I see you've noticed one of the more annoying changes in iOS 16. Between that and the battery life I rolled back from the beta to 15. I'm looking at iOS 16 on a phone that isn't my main phone to see if I want to upgrade yet. There's a lot I don't like about it.

My battery health is down to 82% (I need a replacement ) and the betas were terrible for my battery life. Fortunately the Release Candidate seems to have fixed the battery issues so you should be good to upgrade now if you want iOS 16.
