What do you think the chances are of Apple providing some sort of progress bar when copying files to and from iOS / iPadOS devices from the finder?
Here is an excerpt from their own devolper recomendations.
"Favor progress bars over activity indicators. If activity is quantifiable, use a progress bar instead of an activity indicator so people can better gauge what’s happening and how long it will take"
Apple can you take your own advice and five us that? The spinning circle means nothing.
Another possibility was to use "iostat 5" and monitor transfers from a mounted disk.
It's pretty crazy to have to guess like this (not been fixed for over a year, across two MacOS major versions). Where's the file going? Did I drag the file into the right folder (no indication until all is complete). How close to capacity am I while copying? Who's the manager in charge of this utility? Enquiring minds want to know!
Same here. I cannot understand how one can implement a long operation and not giving the user a way to know when its over or how much as been already done. Progress bar have been here for decades. Who forgot them in this case and why has it not been fixed already?
We do care about user complaints and feedback. Also, I checked in our internal issue tracker, and this feature has been discussed as recently as this month. I can't comment on the status of this feature, but the Files team is aware of this request.
