    iPod touch iPhone + iPod Touch combo?

    Anyone here uses an iPod Touch alongside their iPhone? If so, how are your use cases with them? I know iPods are not really a thing anymore in 2020 and the tech itself is very outdated. But for me personally it has a nostalgic value to it. It was my first ever Apple device as a kid and I’ll...

    iMac G3 DV internal modifications

    Hi, I have recently acquired a motherboard for an iMac DV from eBay. I have found instructions to add an ATX power supply and VGA monitor, but I would like to add more modifications. A few years ago, I made a guitar preamp for my Mac Pro and I would like to build this in to my iMac mod...

    Smart Playlists - Sort by Year?

    I've created smart playlists to group music from different decades (70s, 80s, 90s...). The rules for the playlists involve a date range (1990-1999). However, the music within these playlists are not sorted by year. They're all mixed up. I would like them to be sorted by year, ascending. Is there...

    New songs won't copy from music app on Macbook to music app on iPhone

    iPhone 11 and Macbook Air early 2014 I've recently stopped being able to sync my music from the music app (Catalina, so basically iTunes) to my iPhone. These songs weren't purchased on iTunes, most of them were downloaded from the internet (let's not get into legal and ethical issues here...

    Sync Music and iTunes Libraries to iCloud without duplication?

    I have a very large library that is carefully curated and synced to iCloud (iTunes Match.) I recently migrated my main computer to Music and TV. On my laptops I do not start out with local music and just download as needed from iTunes Match/Apple Music. I have a duplicate library running under...

    MP All Models Question about RAM and the new Mac Pro

    Hey, so I’m an enthusiast and super excited about the new Mac Pro. I’m reading all I can about it bc it’s fascinating to me how much creative folk (who are my clients; I’m a lawyer who advises artists, filmmakers, musicians, etc.) are craving this machine. I have no need for a machine like this...

    Song sorting not syncing with Catalina

    Before Catalina, the songs on my iPhone's Music playlists were sorted by last played date. After Catalina, the songs on the iPhone are now sorted by Artist in reverse alphabetical order, but this is not how they are sorted in macOS Music app. What is going on here?

    iTunes for Windows

    Is it possible to migrate the new media library under Catalina (for music, the old iTunes library) to iTunes for Windows? I am just not feeling the fractured life under Apple’s new media design.

    HomePod On the HomePod, can you play music as a wake-up alarm?

    This wasn't possible under the initial release nearly two years ago, it was still missing in the iOS 12 update, and now that we have iOS 13 is this STILL not possible? What I want is a way to say, "Hey Siri, play my Morning Playlist at 7:15AM." Interestingly enough, my $30 Google Mini can do...

    Move Music (iTunes) Library to External Drive

    I am now running Catalina. It has been about 10 years since I last moved my iTunes library onto external drives, and back then I just made sure I had the 'XML' file in the same place as all my music and things seemed to work fine. I have heard with iTunes now being called 'Music' and...

    Series 5 - How Much Music Storage Space?

    Can anyone advise on how much music storage space there is on the series 5? I had a series 2 and you could only save up to 2GB of music directly on the watch. It is my understanding that the series 3 and 4 had the same limitation, even on the 16GB models, though I may be mistaken here? Has this...
