  1. Great article. I just found out today my “Iphone 12 max pro”, according to signing in with Google, is a “CPU iPhone OS 16_0_2 like Mac OS X”. Have you heard of something like this? There are really strange things on this device. I feel like there is way too many options and custom capabilities for an iPhone. Any help would be appreciated.
