The Apple name is synonymous with success, from hardware home runs like the iPhone to software programs like iTunes.
But what about those Apple software features that aren’t so successful, either because they’re too subtle to discover or were just big misses? This week, I rounded up eight examples of these to make sure you remember that Apple is … human.
1. Tap to Talk, iOS
I’ll admit it: I really thought that this new feature in iOS 8 would change the way people send messages back and forth, since Tap to Talk melds text messaging with voicemail. To use it, you open your Messages app to compose a message, lift your phone to your ear to hear a soft chime — or tap and hold an on-screen microphone icon — then speak your message.
