    MP 7,1 How many TB3 busses should you have vs do you actually have?

    On the phone an Apple technician told me to bring my 7,1 Mac Pro into the shop for repair after finding out that under About - System report - Thunderbolt there were two busses listed - one with number 2 and number 3. But no number 1. Somehow I suspect that this could have something to do with...

    I tried (and failed) to transfer files IN FILE APP on iPad to Mac (Catalina) via Thunderbolt. Is it even possible?

    I took a 1 hour 4K/60fps test video (25GB) on my iPhone 11. I AirDropped it to my iPad Pro 11 (this took 30 minutes). Then I copied it to the Files app on the iPad and deleted it from the Photos app on both devices (and emptied trash), so the video is now only on one device in the Files app. I'm...

    Using mid-2011 iMac as display

    I have recently purchased a brand new MacBook Pro, and was hoping to use my mid-2011 iMac as a display, rather than cowering over the small screen on the MacBook Pro itself as I work from home a lot. This article on Apple's own site suggests it should be possible...
