  • Kael

    The install was fast and painless. Now to play with the new features!

  • Ed

    My phone is updated now, I don’t see an improvement in my storage. I have 16gb but only shows 11.9 in storage. Usuage is still the same before the update. Any idea if that is right?

    In order to see news you have to change your region to the US. It will also prompt you for Apple Pay too but you can just skip through it as it won’t work with a Canadian debit/card.

    Ok, got it. Unfortunately, it does not stay when I came back to Canada. In the future maybe, thanks for the tip.

    You need to keep it in US to keep news. I always have my region set as US and keep my iTunes account in the Canadian store.
