    Does anybody else have this iMac 24 issue? Apple are refusing to help.

    When my iMac is asleep, from day one, it has spontaneously made this weird clicking sound. The screen illuminates and the sound starts immediately, it then just goes off by itself and happens again whenever. I have formatted and set up as new multiple times, and it continues to happen. It seems...

    iPad Pro Squeeze Clicking

    This is NOT a “gate” and it hasn’t affected performance, however, I was wondering what the hive mind thought of this. When I pick up my 12.9 iPP (2021) I can pretty regularly get a light “click” as if the case and screen are being squeezed enough to “click” together or on something inside...

    iPhone 13 Iphone 13 Abysmal Video Quality?

    Hello, everyone I'm a very loyal Apple user, therefore there's no phone for me other than the iPhone, and I recently upgraded from an Iphone XR to a 13 and I love it. Everything about the phone is amazing, especially the screen (once again, coming from the very cheaply made XR). There's one...

    Macmini M1 100% fan noise.

    Anyone willing to record the sound a macmini m1 makes at 100% fan noise? I have a macbookpro m1, and though very silent in general, the fan is extremely loud at 100% with a high pitch that's annoying. I'm curious if the macmini m1 has a more tolerable 100% fan noise. Greatly appreciated.
