Articles about trivial features edit

I've just discovered a bunch of articles entirely dedicated to features found on Apple devices. If it's something like AirDrop or AirPlay, that's totally fine, but ... Control Center (Apple), Crash Detection, Dictionary (software), Family Sharing, Night Shift (software), Notification Center, SpringBoard, System Settings?? Come on, seriously? This is trivial WP:FANCRUFT; none of these articles should exist. The only plausible explanation I can think of for why they were even created in the first place is that the article creators were diehard Apple fans — but this is Wikipedia, not the Apple fan wiki. To quote {{Overly detailed}}, [These articles] contain an excessive amount of intricate detail that may interest only a particular audience.

And it appears Windows is suffering the same problem: Action Center, Feedback Hub, Get Help, Magnifier (Windows), Microsoft Messaging, Microsoft Tips, Snipping Tool, Windows Fax and Scan, Windows Mobility Center, Windows spotlight ... these are all WP:FANCRUFT that, like the Apple articles, fail WP:GNG and WP:SUSTAINED. InfiniteNexus (talk) 06:05, 8 October 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree on most, but I'd argue that Crash Detection is notable due to secondary coverage & relatively widespread criticism of its bugs. DFlhb (talk) 06:15, 16 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
@InfiniteNexus I also think it's worth considering merging the articles on iOS versions, and the various iPod touch models, and the iPad models, recombining the base-model iPhones with Pro models (like iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro), and undoing the splits into Intel/Apple silicon articles (see top of this talk page). DFlhb (talk) 10:18, 24 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am eager to get behind that, especially merging the base-model iPhones with the Pro models. But such merges will require formal merge requests on each article's talk pages. InfiniteNexus (talk) 22:50, 27 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
It makes sense to keep things consistent, and I'd like as much input as possible. Might want to add the merge templates to all, but direct all discussions to a single talk page (iPhone 15 Pro, where a merge was recently informally discussed). It's unusual but I feel it might work. DFlhb (talk) 08:52, 28 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That would most certainly result in a WP:TRAINWRECK. InfiniteNexus (talk) 17:59, 28 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I agree... Calculator (Apple)—seriously? BhamBoi (talk) 00:34, 25 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Apple apps in need of articles edit

BhamBoi (talk) 00:32, 25 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

No. Not every Apple app needs an article. We were just discussing this at #Articles about trivial features. InfiniteNexus (talk) 22:51, 27 November 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Comprehenshive list of iOS libraries and frameworks? edit

Wikipedia could benefit from having a comprehensive list of all the Apple libraries/frameworks/whatever due to the sheer amount of them, and lots of them not being notable to have wikipedia pages such as:

  • PencilKit
  • ARKit
  • PDFKit
  • TipKit
  • UIKIT
  • RealityKit

etc. given the many apple platforms, it would be nice to maybe have a table for compatibility. I do not have a proposal as to what the article name should be. -1ctinus📝🗨 14:35, 1 February 2024 (UTC)Reply[reply]
