    iPhone car play sync question

    I appreciate your consideration on the topic ...and we probably PROBABLY :-) are okay ... but ... This is the point: Checking a five year old and four year old manual is worthless because the phones have updated software, just like the apps on OS systems on computers can suddenly stop working...

    iPhone car play sync question

    I’m ready to finally purchase two iPhones, one main reason, to use contactless pay. However, I have a 2015 Hyundai Sonata and my spouse has a 2017 Ford Escape. What’s the easiest way to find out definitively if the 11 with pair with them? Don’t want to make a $1400 mistake. I believe the Ford is...

    Upgrading a 2009 MBP. SSD and OS question - Hurdles and Hoops

    I think I was able to boot from the flash drive. Not sure, because it appeared when looking at the disc utility that it did boot from the flash. I say appeared because there was a lot of clicks and tries and this and that and choosing, etc when something finally happened. Then I got out of safe...

    Upgrading a 2009 MBP. SSD and OS question - Hurdles and Hoops

    I have copied the .dmg over to the flash drive as is too now. Haven't done anything with it. I'm waiting for the spinning to stop after I clicked on trackpad to find out why only the mouse works right now. Should be about five minutes. :) (after five minutes the window popped up to disable in...

    Upgrading a 2009 MBP. SSD and OS question - Hurdles and Hoops

    Thanks. In the meantime, just for snicks, I launched Com-R and got into the Time Machine. The Mach HD showed up (along with the flashdrive grey and another Restore HD grey). And instead of choosing the same TM back up I always do (The one from May) I chose January 8. So, I'm looking at a TM...

    Upgrading a 2009 MBP. SSD and OS question - Hurdles and Hoops

    So, yes, let's assume that the installer app is on the flash drive at this point. I'll let you know what happens with the TM restor it's 63.5% done. :-) Thanks for your interest in helping. I'm glad I don't NEED this computer right now.

    Upgrading a 2009 MBP. SSD and OS question - Hurdles and Hoops

    Most of this is a foreign language to me. I was able to go online to "download" an install but it stops and says I can't. The HD was locked so I started down some rabbit hole on that. I did download an install and save to a flash drive but haven't a clue as to how to get the computer to...

    Upgrading a 2009 MBP. SSD and OS question - Hurdles and Hoops

    I have an old 2009 MBP I've actually replaced. But I was thinking about using it just for emails, online, innernet. It's been on the charge for at least 2 yrs because the battery is dead. So, I found I could replace the battery for under $90. I've gone thru the disk utility hoops, the reboot...

    Mac Book Pro: Cycle count MBP MC118LL/A (2009) 168 vs 1000?

    We've since replaced this laptop, mainly because years ago it wouldn't hold a charge in the battery. Or, so I assumed. I'm using it to play with and test right now ... I don't think there's anything left on it that I need, but I'm still checking. And I had to put the OS on via Time Machine...

    PHOTOS option for libraries no longer works: Mojave upgrade

    I have to reboot each time to get the OPTIONS >Photos to work.

    PHOTOS option for libraries no longer works: Mojave upgrade

    Well, doesn't "stick." Tried again just now and just launches into PHOTOS. I guess I'll just have to go to the library each time.

    PHOTOS option for libraries no longer works: Mojave upgrade

    I did download something a couple years ago...I need to check the apps. I may already have something that does this. Thanks.

    PHOTOS option for libraries no longer works: Mojave upgrade

    Rebooted again and this time everything took. I get my libraries listed now. My guess is they were large and hadn't completed their journey? So, back to the second half of the question. Merging?
