    Apple released watchOS 5.0.1 with bug fixes (charging problem, issues with Activity Rings).

    So far I’m liking 12. I really appreciate that the day & date are now beside the time on the upper left corner.

    What I can’t figure out is on the right corner. When you turn the ipad on the wifi symbol, battery percentage & a battery with the strength display as before. Now there’s a line underneath this and sometimes control centre symbols. What and why are they there?

    Control Centre has been moved from the App Switcher. The line simply indicates where you have to swipe down to find it.

    Thanks, J.A. I couldn’t find any reference to it.

    I want to download the iPad User Guide for iOS 12 to the Books app, but the link at Apple Support just opens Books, where the book store is "not available."

    Has anyone managed to download this pub?

    Searching the store, it doesn’t look like they’ve released an iOS 12 verison of the iPad User Guide yet.

    They might be waiting until the next iPad update.

    Just a guess, but there may be information in the new guide that would give away new features of the next generation iPad; and they don’t want to put out one version of the guide just to replace it.

    All of which suggests we might be getting that hardware update soonish.

    Right. I don't want the online version, I want one that works without wifi.

    And...the link for the iPad/iOS 12 book goes here:

    Did you actually try it? Did it work for you, and it's just failing for me? That was my question.

    BTW, sometimes Books is black, other times white. It has nothing to do with the time of day, but is seemingly random. Naturally, Apple has not explained this (in a book that's actually available), nor offered a user pref to control it.
