    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 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...

    A good mac keyboard

    Well, it's that time again. My $100 Apple Keyboard the S, E, L, D is vanishing. Fortunately I am a good typist, but I would like to see the letters anywhoo .... and I really REALLY do not like the new flat $149. Since I only get about 14 months at best out of a keyboard before keys disappear...

    Adding sound effects to iTUNES audio library

    Can anyone share how to add your own sound effects to the iTunes library? Back in the olden days (2012) I was able to add by going to library/somewhere/somewhere/somewhere but I can't seem to figure out where there are now. I know how to find the effect online, download and drag into a movie...

    Simple question: Are my downloaded iCloud Photos actually on my computer now?

    A friend just came over with his MBP. I have this same question. He can see all his photos in Photos. Or at least he thinks all his photos are there. He said he connects his camera or iPhone to the computer and imports them. He was trying out iCloud. He's almost full with the 5gb. He wants to...

    CPU Machine Check Architecture Error Dump

    This just started this morning after I got a notification that Logitech wanted to update software for the mouse I use. Naturally I tried to ignore it since Logitech doesn't recognize the wireless mouse anyway. But it wouldn't let me, so I downloaded it. My CD/DVD player keeps sounding like it's...

    Transfer just one app from 2009 MBP to 2016 MBP

    Hi. Before we get to the simply answer: I don't want to use migration as I don't want to take everything over. And, I couldn't anyway. The old drive is 600gb and the new is 256. The 2009 MBP has Office:Word 2008 on it; my spouse is comfortable with it and really would rather not learn the 2016...

    What adapter do I need to connect a 2018 MacBook Air to peripherals?

    I use a 2009 Macbook Pro as a desktop 98% of my time. However, I like the versatility of the laptop when traveling. I am looking at the 2018 Air. There are two Thunderbolt 3 ports. However, I have already spent 3+ hrs trying to "just simply" find information about an adapter to connect the 8...

    Mp4 to MOV in order to copy to DVD is becoming HUGE

    What am I missing? I am archiving some movies to DVD. I have them in MP4 format. So, to get them onto the DVD, using iDVD, I'm first importing the MP4 to iMovie (as iDVD won't burn the mp4). I then "Share" the movie that saves it as a .mov. This then is easily put on the DVD with Magic DVD. Done...

    USING a 2018 Mac laptop (any) as a hard drive

    For years, we have used our MacBookPro (2009) as a hard drive, hooked up to a keyboard, monitor and mouse when not traveling. It's time to replace. I was looking at the new MacMinis and considering an iPad. I actually do lots of video editing, etc., but for this use, it's really internet...

    BUTTERFLY KEYBOARD issue? update?

    I've been researching the lower end (ha!, right?) mac laptops to replace a 2009 (yes, seriously) MacBookPro. Then I ran into the "butterfly keyboard" issue (for those who have experienced it, you know about it including the class action suit; however, this problem with dust, sticking, etc is new...

    2002 Quicksilver has apparently died... but has it?

    I have this 2002 Quicksilver. I've kept it running for all these years. It was in the basement and it's purpose was to connect to a SONY camcorder. The camcorder shot Digital 8mm film cassettes. Since upgrading to El Capitan (let alone Sierra) iMOVIE wouldn't speak to the SONY. Hence, in the...

    PHANTOM SMTPs with HIGH SIERRA

    How do I get rid of the phantom SMTPs that are in the choices to use? I've had major issues setting up a third-party email and in the process had to remove and reinstall some of my Gmail accounts and other emails. Now I have duplicates of the SMTP for GMAIL for example. Everytime I go to send...

    Partitioned my first EXTERNAL for Time Machine and have this question:

    Okay, stupid question, but I partitioned an external hard drive to use as the back up for Time Machine. I called the largest section (1.5gb) Time Machine; the other section is called "Saved Files." On the first backup that is running right now, I excluded the "Saved Files." That's okay as there...

    Can someone walk me through the new and improved HS email settings that have no explanation?

    Recently I changed hosts and am having issues setting up the email. As usual there are settings such as TLS? and XYZ certificates that no one explains. You're supposed to know what to set up. I keep forgetting to feed the IT Administrator who's locked in the basement. But, aside from these...

    Time Machine in High Sierra beings to prepare. Stops.

    I upgraded to High Sierra, (10.13.6 current) I guess back in May. I just noticed today - August12, that my last backup was June 15th. I have 126gb of 1T available. There is 650gb used on the 1T hard drive. So, I go into my TimeM to maybe delete a back up or two and discover that the only backups...

    Syncing bookmarks with iPad and Mac mini not happening

    I'm running El Capitan on the Mac mini. The reason is I have to be absolutely 100% positive that PHOTOSHOP CS4 will work on Sierra. So, this is not upgraded. The iPad is up to 11.4. Since about November, my iPad and Mac will not sync bookmarks. I have tried a whole bunch of things...

    No Longer Can See Raw Photos (nef) Just Jpg

    Okay, so what am I missing? In PHOTOS, I see the low res JPG after import. I have shot (NIKON D50) both RAW+JPG). In the photos it appears there is a little icon that has a more than one thing that that photo represents. I "used" to hook up the camera, import, and both would appear (I'm running...
