You killed “Calendar” app

I’m not sure what you’re doing every time I pull up the Apple calendar app but you’ve destroyed it’s ability to render correctly. Must you recheck all the link in calendar every time I open it (I think this is what is happening). I live in the calendar app with managing 5+ different calendars between a busy work life, teenagers, service work and a marriage. Please figure this out for better functionality. If you’re going to sell companies on that they need to force employees to put this on personal devices then stop ruining their personal device experience.

READ: Battery Usage and link scans and network usage

I’ve seen a significant amount of reviews complaining about “High battery usage” and “5k links?? I only used one app!” iOS tracks “battery usage” based on network activity, and because this acts as a VPN, yes, it will show high battery usage, but in reality it’s not. Let’s say Facebook used 10% battery, and Instagram used 15% battery, after installing this app, you’d see iOS report that this app used 25% of your battery. I’m sure you get the idea now. You can validate this information by using any VPN client on your phone. Link scans: This is all traffic from your phone: background app refreshes, apps can send request to hundreds of separate links. That’s why you see so many link scans.

Network usage: again, because all apps route their data into this app, your data usage will be pointed to this app aswell. If you used 5GB on Facebook, it would show as 5GB under this app.

Huge battery drain for no perceptible value

This app used 45% of the battery on my iPhone 13 pro max today. This isn’t uncommon. On a good day it uses 20% of the battery.

It also breaks basic functionality in some apps. For example the My Spectrum app won’t even finish loading on my phone when Defender is installed and running.

On the dashboard in this app all it ever says is that it’s “scanned” 5K+ links in the last 24 hours? It doesn’t matter if I’ve been using my phone heavily, or barely at all. What “links” does this thing think it’s scanning? Where does it find them? What is it “scanning” them for? I navigated to a handful of known phishing sites just to see what this app would do. It didn’t seem to do anything as far as I could tell.

What value does this provide me, or my company? How is it worth nearly half my battery, and breaking basic functionality in 4 other apps I use?
