    Anyone having problems with the iPhones alarm clock?

    So for the longest time now, it seems like the iPhone alarm clock isn’t working the way it should. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. Sometimes I wake up and look at my phone only to look at the time and realize I’m super late waking up. The display on the screen looks normal, as if an...

    Deleted Macintosh HD hard drive/disk!! Anything I can do?

    Yesterday, my Macbook Air 2017 restarted to begin an update (Catalina, I think?). When I turned it on to see if the update had fully downloaded, it told me there was not enough space to download (I had only 17GB of open space on my drive but the update required 20GB). I was in a bit of a rush...

    Hello, I have a Mac Pro 5,1 and I'm exploring what direction to head when support for macOS Software Updates ends (either with Mojave or Catalina). Unfortunately, I'm not the target audience for a 2019 Mac Pro. I prefer a tower and am considering a PC. However, since my Mac Pro is running fine...

    MBP 13" 2019 extreme heat and battery drainage with closed lid

    G'day all, I'll cut right to the chase. Last night I closed the lid at 50% and chucked it in my bag. I took it out of my bag 2 hours later and it was boiling hot and the battery had drained down to 20%. I think I may have found the process in the background that caused it but I’m concerned...

For example when you search "Apple" on google images you get many photos of it, and if you want to view one of them in large you just simply tap it. But the problem is that since yesterday I suddenly...

    Hi all. I recently bought an ADATA XPG SX8200 Pro M.2 NVMe SSD 512GB for my MacBook Pro 12,1 (early 2015, i5).

    Will Apple Repair a Used iPhone 7 (A1660) Under Recall?

    A family member bought a "new" 32GB iPhone 7 for work on eBay for about a hundred dollars less than what Apple offers. Based on past experiences buying bootleg DVDs on eBay, I was skeptical. The phone arrives and once turned on, it starts bootlooping. It looked a little worn for being new so I...

    Hi guys, I think I need some help by understanding one thing: I thought Apple is forcing developers to support the iPhone X display for App updates after the 1st of July. How is it possible that Apps like „Moon Climbing - MoonBoard“ or the „Bundesliga“ App got updates without the support...
