Issues with my new iPhone SE (2022) | #ios | #apple | #iossecurity


A few weeks ago, I bought a brand-new iPhone SE w/ 128 GB SSD and AppleCare direct from Apple. I also ditched Tracfone (which was swallowed up by Verizon) and migrated my iPhone and phone number to US Mobile. I am still settling in, having never owned an iPhone before. My sole past iOS experience was with an older iPad Mini running iOS 12.

I am generally pleased with my iPhone. Unlike my previous phone, a Lenovo-Motorola Moto G6 Play, this SE has comparatively excellent battery life (the G6 was abyssmal), no screen freezes, and snappy performance. The ultra-fast scrolling sometimes results in my overshooting something I want to look at, but I can live with a “problem” like that.

I created this thread to discuss other issues:

1: First issue I want to ask about is Apple’s handling on multiple Mail accounts. I am responsible for the administration of several Google accounts and their addresses. I have found that relying on Apple Mail means that it automatically sets up the accounts for me. (Not surprised). One downside to this: these multiple accounts are not labeled explicitly. Some are identifiable as their e-mail address. A couple of these accounts, though, are simply labeled “Gmail”, which is annoying. Is there a way to correct this? Thanks in advance.

2: I am not current on iOS 15 and have never used an iPhone before. Where is there a good place to learn how to get the most out of this iPhone and get current on iOS? One thing I want to do is organize all my apps into folders to minimize navigation to apps. I want to learn about how to do that.

3: I had quite a time getting my fingerprint ID / home button to work. Most of the time, it would not recognize my left thumb. I stopped using my thumb to wake the iPhone and started getting used to using my left index finger. Is there any way to improve this? I would like to get my iPhone to wake using at least two fingers of one hand and maybe a third from my right hand just for security and dexterity in various situations. Any suggestions?
