I can’t tell when exactly this started – initially I thought this is just a temporary fluke, maybe even just my network acting up – but it’s been more than two months now since the #images iMessage extension/app(?) stopped working for me. You have to look pretty closely, but there’s actually an endless spinner in the middle of the screenshot.

It’s not an issue with my region, otherwise it wouldn’t show up at all.1 I used a couple of different internet connections and networking setups, no difference.2 It’s been the case since before 17.5, so there was at least a couple of reboots that didn’t get this unstuck either. I guess I’ll stick with GIFwrapped, which is the better app anyway.

  1. A few years ago I was traveling to Austria (I live right on the border, just a quick day trip) which at the time didn’t have #images yet. It really just yeets the feature away within an hour or so of crossing the border. I wonder what part of the DMA forced them to do that… oh wait, that was before the DMA↩︎

  2. Philipp and I have an inside joke going where we always blame things like this on our nerdy networking setups, mainly me using Pi-hole and him using NextDNS↩︎
