I thought the point of Apple shit was so that someone didn't have to ask to figure out how to do something, and they seem to be getting pretty convoluted.
Most of the limitations, if not all, are due to record and movie companies and licensing. If you just want to move files around there's airdrop or a myriad of apps. Besides this I disagree OS X / IOS is getting convoluted
to any large extent.
It's just the iTunes ecosystem and other apps that needs to be rethinked and rebuilt.
iTunes, which concern itself with syncing, can be complained about intelligently and coherently directly to Apple in this feedback form
. Apple may be big, but they do listen to massive complaints. Now and then they retract bad decisions too. If you've chosen Apple you should expect the best and tell Apple when they fail you in an intelligent and coherent
fashion. Never settle for anything less than that.
