    Is anyone else having sound issues with BT (specifically with BT cans) under Ventura and iPadOS 16...?

    I posted this in Apple's forum and - so far - tumbleweed. I have two sets of BT cans: Sony WH-1000MX4 and Bose NC700. Now, I can't remember whether this began happening when I first installed Ventura/iPadOS 16, or whether it's been caused by a subsequent update (both devices are running the...

    Horrible bluetooth input lag 12.6

    So.. yeah. Basically the title. Ever since the 12.6 Monterey update, my magic keyboard and trackpad are laggy as hell. Except when I plug them in, then it's fine. So it has to be bluetooth right? My wired mouse is 100 percent solid. Anyone else with this issue? I'm on a 2020 iMac if that matters..

    BlueTooth Razer Orochi Mouse no longer pairing

    I just dug out my old Razer Orochi which used to work well with my MacBook Pro. Both Mac Studio and MacBook Pro 13" M1 are now running Ventura B7, and I cannot get the mouse to pair.

    Very low quality playback on macOS (good on iOS)

    Hello. I recently got a pair of Airpods Pro as a gift and while I use different and better sounding equipment when I'm listening to music, they're very convenient to be used in other instances. The Airpods Pro work perfectly on iOS, but unfortunately they sound horrible when used on macOS...

    Dead Apple A1016 Bluetooth Keyboard. Is there a way to revive it?

    The title might be a bit misleading, but let me explain. Two months ago, a friend of mine gave me an Apple A1016 keyboard, that he got for 5€. I couldn't pair it with anything at first, but I soon found out that I have to type in a "secret" PIN (0000 in my case), before I enter the pairing...

    One of my colleagues has a Mac Mini 2018. I am not in IT but our company doesn't have IT support and because I seemingly know more than most about computers most issues fall to me. I can solve most but this has stumped me. Bluetooth had been working absolutely fine, but has recently stopped...

    For years I used the Apple wireless keyboard and trackpad with my 2015 MBP (15" and 13") in clamshell mode. These I think were first gen but not sure - they were what Apple was selling in 2015. Now I have had several months with a 2021 MBP 14 Max with the current wireless keyboard (non finger...
