Apple's early computers ran on a variety of operating systems, including a Pascal version and one based on CP/M, before releasing its ProDOS with the advent of its 16-bit computer. With the release of the Lisa, which had its own OS, Apple and computing entered the graphical age; it was followed by the Macintosh, which offered a series of "System" operating systems. Other Mac operating systems included PowerPC until Apple acquired NeXT and folded it into the Mac OS. Current operating systems for Apple devices are Mac OS-X and iOS.

How can a user's contacts contained on an iPhone be backed up?

I will be doing a Gmail to Office 365 migration for an organization that has several Macs that contain lots of contacts.

Some of these contacts are only saved on the local Mac.

We need to be sure that these contacts are moved into Office 365 as part of the migration and that no contacts are left on these local Macs.

How can this be done?

I have a macbook pro early 2011.  I run bootcamp, and am running windows 10. I'm almost always in windows, and I noticed the other day, that it gets really hot, so hot I can't touch the bottom of the laptop. About 1 year ago, I replaced the battery with a new battery and a new Samsung SSD.  So I Cleaned fans at that time, and it's strange why it's running so hot.

Any idea's what I can do to not make it run so hot?  Is there a way to check and see if the processor fans are actually working?
Not sure what else can cause it to burn up?

After logging on and while using his Mac OS X 10.9.5 computer a user repeatedly receives messages about things wanting to access and use the keychain similar to the message shown in the screenshot.

I have already performed first aid on the keychain and then verified the keychain but continue to get this message.

If we click the Cancel button this message continues to appear and keeps prompting for this password which we don't know.

What can be done to fix this issue?

Hi

I downloaded a purchased Educon Wordpress theme from theme forest, and whenever it downloads on Apple OS X, it unzips itself, even if I select, just download the "wordpress-installable file."

I need the installation file to insert as a new WP theme
How do I do this without unzipping?

Thanks

Locked out of my Apple account - Why?

I would much appreciate someone explaining why I get Locked Out of my apple account every few weeks.

Seems I have done nothing but work on my several Apple devices (iPhone, iPad, Macs) - sometimes a few are on together.

Then I have to scramble to access my Apple credentials - totally wasting time.

Is this a scheme of Apple to assure Apple product users are really who they seem to be?

This is really a pain!!

I have read several articles online that instruct me to go into the Outlook Preferences and then click on the "Sync Services" icon.

The problem is that I don't see "Sync services" anywhere.

I also don't see this even after putting several Mac computers within the Office Insider Fast program.

What other options are available within Mac Outlook 2016 to go into the "Sync Services" menu?

Where can I find the "Sync Services" options within Mac Outlook 2016?

Hi, I have a Macbook Pro and iMac on my desk, and they obviously both have their own keyboards and trackpads.

I am wondering if it is possible to do the following two things:

01 - control my iMac using my Macbook (keyboard and trackpad) so that I don't need to use the iMac keyboard and trackpad?

02 - swap and flick my Macbook screen up onto the iMac screen if i need a larger screen and flick back again (etc)

A few things to note:

- i am using the new Macbook Pro so it only has the USB C ports
- the iMac is one year old and has all of the usual ports

Thank you in advance for your help.

A friend of mine is an Android user.  In the past, I could use Messages on my iPhone and Mac to text message them.  The outline of the messages with them would be green (which usually indicates they're a non iPhone user).

A recent update on my Macbook have suddenly made it not possible for me to get texts from my friend.  I still get texts on my iPhone, but they are not showing up in Messages anymore on my Macbook.

How do I turn this back on?

What are the correct methods for setting up a local NAS as the destination for holding Time Machine backups on a Mac OS Sierra v. 10.12.6 Mac?

The path where I would like to store these backups is 10.99.199.249.

I have typed in the following command within the terminal:

sudo tmutil setdestination -p afp://TimeMachine@10.99.199.249/Backups/MBP

Open in new window


However, I receive the message "Failed to open session. (error 5)
The backup destination could not be set"

What can be done to fix this issue so that I can use the NAS as the backup destination for the Time Machine backups?
