I read some of your foolish scree, then just skimmed the rest.

That notch at the top isn't just a sensor pack, it's a design element, one that apple is heavily pushing.

Apple is turning a design quirk into the iPhone X’s defining feature - The Verge

This means designers are being told not to black bar the notch but to design around it, making the best apps those that pretend as if a big bite isn't being taken out of the top or side, or that's just a normal thing, oh and the swipe based home controls are a bit sensitive so could you just move any of your on screen controls inwards so the users fat hands to block more of the gaming screen... that would great...

Honestly, I think Apple is brilliant. It's not so much their products, but their marketing. They've essentially managed to develop the corporate version of a cult of personality.

Their store bags are great, I keep them around and use them for other things.

So, I'm really lucky I have access to more than one computer, because iTunes on my Windows desktop is shitting the bed, and I mistakenly let it attempt to update my iPhone.

Why, why did I let it try? I had the same exact disaster the last time I tried this.

I had one of those experiences with two-factor authorization on my Apple ID. I have only one Apple machine, my laptop, and my password wasn't working. Took me two "recoveries," more than a MONTH, and a phone call to Apple Support to find out that two-factor authorization REQUIRES you to have at least two Apple devices.

That sounds like an excuse for them to get you to buy more than one of their devices.
