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.

What is the best powerbank I can buy for charging both a Lenovo laptop and a MacBook Pro on the go?

I've found some options here, but it's not easy to choose the right one:

I need to be able to bring it with me on the plane also.

Here are 2 different methods presented:

But if I choose the wrong powerbank, can I damage the computer battery?

Hi,

Is it possible to configure an iPad so that it will boot into a certain app and activate a kiosk mode so that the users can't get out of it (without a passcode)? If yes, how?

Thanks!

So that people can't launch certain elements of an app, for example.

This is possible with 'Guided App' but we need a solution that results in an app loaded in kiosk mode automatically ...

Thanks!

In windows explorer on a windows operating system, folders are always grouped together at the top alphabetically followed by the files below it also alphabetically.  

On my Mac, the folders are not displayed at the top despite my changing of the order or screen view.  So when I'm looking to save a new documents in my documents folder, I cannot easily find my sub-folder quickly due to lots of files being in there.  

How do I fix this?

We have iPhone 7 plus syncing to a brand new computer that has a fresh iTunes installed; both devices are updated in latest versions, etc.   The problem is that the iPhone has a bunch of music and audio recording.  However when we click on "Sync Music" in iTunes, it says it will delete all iPhone music & video contents.  On this new computer we have 5 new songs we want to sync, or add, to the iphone; we don't want to delete the contents already in the iPhone.

How can we sync iPhone with iTunes, add these 5 new songs and not delete the existing music/video content on the iPhone?

I have a Mac Pro running the latest version of OS X. I, unfortunately need to run Windows to manage my network, and I'm using VMWare Fusion to create Windows 7 and 10 VM's. I am using an Apple Magic Trackpad 2 device. Mostly when I'm running the VM's, it works OK, but occasionally it will just start tracking badly. Either it will track way too fast or be jerky in it's tracking. Then it will settle down and work fine for a bit. Today I started experimenting with having the track pad plugged into it's USB charging base all of the time and, while I've not done this very long, it seems more stable. I assume that I'm still connecting via BT.

Has anyone else seen this or have a solution for this issue?

Thanx...

I have always been a window person other than the iPhone and iPad and I am looking into learning IOS development.

Looks like I will need to buy some type of Mac and from what I can tell the XCode 8 requirements are 10.12 which is Mac OS Sierra right? I am looking at some Mac Mini's that have OS X Yosemite which is 10.10 so that wont work for XCode 8 right?

With the Macs can you upgrade to a higher version of OS or is that a paid upgrade? How would I tell what hardware would support the upgrade to 10.12?

Any suggestions on Mac's I should look at for a barebones system to start playing around with developing? Once I get more serious and get a feel for it I will get a beefier system.

Can the mac devices like the Mac Mini be used with a non Apple monitor?

I am a C# developer and Mac user and like the idea of using Microsoft's Visual Studio 2017 for Mac to write a cross platform app for iPhone and Android.

I have played with Xamarin and understand it's actually a website I would be offering, which is in stark contrast to an Objective C native app.

My question involves the need to the App Store from Apple.

If I wrote a cross-plarform app, could I distribute it outside the Apple channel? An iPhone user can purchase anything they want from a website.

Wondering...

Thanks

It has been a long time, since i used the itunes to backup my Iphone along with Apps and musics, and everything.
i just realised that when i backup my apps, i can no longer see them moving to the itunes folder; while, in the past couple of years ago, i could do this.

my apps, also have downloaded data in them, for example my udemy app has downloaded videos inside it. i do not want to redownload them when i restore from iphone after a compelte erase.

i could not also get my mp3 files and my ebook. anything that is not purchased via itune store, cannot be moved and retrieved back after restore.

is there any possiblity or a software that can help backup everything from my iphone and put it in a folder, so that i can easily put it back after a clean erase, when i say everything, i mean everything from my mp3 files, videos, pictures, my apps including their downloaded contents, my ebooks, ringtones, everything.

thanks for sharing your idea and experience

A customer has come to me with an iMac that he is asking me to clean.

History
His ex wife works for Apple and she has made some claims that she has access to his machine and all his data (he uses the machine to run his business).  

Situation
I don't know what tools Apple support staff use to access systems remotely nor do I know what access apple staff have to information stored in iCloud/iEverything.  I have backed up his data and rebuilt the machine to MAC OSx 10.9, and restored data.  I didn't use his Apple ID for anything in case her claims are correct.

If you are a Mac tech what would be your advice - I'm a Microsoft/Linux man and am helping out of goodwill and am out of my depth beyond this.  He wont take it to Apple for fear of prejudicial treatment.

I have a clients iMac which looks like it originally cane with osx 10.7

The hard drive is faulty and i have been trying to install osx via Internet recovery.

Whenever i get to the step to login with the itunes account after entering the correct details it comes up saying:

This item is temporarily unavailable . Try again later.

I have tried clicking the Get Help Online solution where you then login to icloud website to register the device on that account but it does not resolve it.

Can anyone advise how I can install a new osx on this iMac with the new replacement hard drive?

I would prefer not using torrents as i want to make sure it is legitimate software.

Hi Experts,

I am thinking of getting a Mac, but still need Windows on it. What is better, having it as dual boot or VM?

Personally, I like the idea of VM, so I can have instant access to both. If there any drawbacks to this?

What is the recommended specs for this, and do I just need to purchase the Windows key?

Thanks.

I don't know much about macs.

Have a friend that has a 5 year old macbook.  Says that sometimes, the r key stops working for a stretch of time.

Poeple that do know macs are telling him it's not a hardware issue. it's software and laptop shoudl be replaced because of age / this is too hard to fix.

External keyboard does not have this issue.

I remember someone coming to me about mac only typing in upper case, regardless of reboot, regardless of caps lock setting (light does get toggled but doesn't change - its always upper case).  Apple store said he needed new keyboard for $500.  I did some googling and saw about PRAM? reset and that solved it.

But PRAM reset also changes other things? So I don't want to try that with this intermittent problem with 1 key not always working.

Any thoughts if it's a bad keyboard?  Software in the mac?  would PRAM reset help?  Something else to try?

Hi,

I bought a new mac and gave my old one to my friend yesterday.

I thought I had everything backed upo but it turns out i am missing a project folder that did not copy over.

I wiped my old mac completely (from boot up) before giving it to my friend. Is there any way to recover the previous installation and files?

Thanks in advance for your help.
