    Memory upgrade

    OK, after a LONG time of sliding along with Lion on my mid 2011 27in iMac, I was forced to upgrade yo El Capitan so I could sync my new iPhone SE. It really seems slow now (was fine on Lion), so I'm thinking the 4Gb of installed RAM isn't cutting it. I have 2 empty slots and I'm wondering if I can put a couple 4 Gb cards in them or if since i currently have 2 Gb cards, do I need to put 2Gb cards in? Thanks folks.

    Memory upgrade

    I always put in as much RAM as I can afford. If you really want to boost performance, while you have it open to replace the RAM, you could upgrade the HD with an SSD. Forgot to mention, my vendor of choice is OWC (macsales.com). Nice how-to videos.

    I thought you might be able to do it with a Chromecast, but I have been unsuccessful streaming to my Chromecast from my iPhone 7

    One more time!!

    Happy Birthday, Adam. Hope you had a great day and another great year. I know the forum isn't nearly as active as it once was but it's just the evolution of troubleshooting. I still think it's a valuable tool.

    raindrop.io app review....

    Interesting read. Thanks. Made me curious so I read some articles and went to the website. Nice website but missing a key ingredient for me - About Us. There is absolutely no real contact information. The Help link appears to be a direct to another application. I'm betting it's one person who came up with the app and it's impossible to support adequately so if it works, great, keep the money. If something goes wrong just do a refund. PS - I find I don't really USE bookmarks anymore. I have many many many but probably just keep the tab ad infinitum or google the topic again.

    3rd party Watch Bands

    I've had my Series 1 since early on. Still love it. Have several 3rd party bands and never really had problems. I did buy through Amazon, though so I knew I could return if problems.

    Bluetooth Problem

    Well, it's not really a problem because I have figured out what's happening (kinda). For months now, I've been having occasional problems with both the bluetooth mouse and keyboard on my Mid-2011 iMac. I knew it wasn't OS related because it happened before I upgraded to Sierra. Every so often, the keyboard or mouse would stop responding or just get flaky and not work right. I'd turn them off and reconnect and it MIGHT help. Eventually I figured out it only happened when I had my iPhone sitting on the desk. Then, I figured out it REALLY happened when my iPhone was sitting on the desk AND updating apps. Don't know why it happens but since I can reproduce the problem, I'm pretty convinced I have figured it out.

    Bluetooth Problem

    Actually don't know what model either is. They're Apple and old. So, do you know why it happens?

    Bluetooth Problem

    To quote Ed McMahon - "You are correct, Sir!" Just played a YouTube video sitting at the machine and bluetooth mouse went wonky until I quit.

    That time of the year!

    Happy Birthday, Adam. Hope you have a great day and another good year.

    "Messages" problem

    Check your Internet Accounts in System Preferences and assure your Message account is active. I had to say 'Configure in Messages' to be able to sign in properly.

    Reverting to earlier iOS?

    I have a couple apps that my iPhone has warned me will not work with 'future' updates of iOS. So, I am now hesitant to update to 10.3.2. Can I backup to my computer and then restore to a previous version of iOS or does the restore just get my data, etc. back? Thanks, folks.

    Cant sync music library from itunes to iphone

    Have to say this is why I have never done Apple Music. I was having sync problems in the days before Apple Music and decided using it would make things even worse. I am very old school. I like owning my music and having it on my device. It's why I bought an original iPod.

    New life

    The world has greatly changed. Not just because there's a new non techie US president. The Internet is now ubiquitous as amazingly enough is Mac OS and iOS (I remember when Macs were 'don't buy them"). We are here for everybody with Apple problems We may not be able to solve them all but we WILL try. We ARE NOT Twitter or Facebook. We're a community who will try to help people with the little stuff. If you're a member, tell your friends who have Apple devices. Time for a reboot

    New life

    Wow. Must have upgraded the license. Looks much different.
  17. As far as I can tell from a little research is, MAYBE. This seemed to have the best comparison I could find - https://www.cnet.com/how-to/usb-type-c-thunderbolt-3-one-cable-to-connect-them-all/ I am not at all clear about what speed is supported at the actual bus in the devices which I think it the limiting factor.
  18. I use SuperDuper for backups rather than time machine and I have a 2 TB drive with 3 partitions that I use for 3 different machines. I know of no reason you couldn't do that with TM but since I don't use it, I can't be sure.
  19. Never encountered that situation, but I'm thinking it might be related to the game rather than iOS. Regardless, my steps are - Turn off Wii - Close out all the apps on the iPhone - reboot the iPhone. A full restore is pretty drastic, but that would definitely lead me to believe a game problem

    iPhone no longer will connect to iTunes

    Glad to hear it worked out. Love Apple but have to admit that it really isn't "It just works" anymore

    iPhone no longer will connect to iTunes

    Sorry, Bud. Then we are up to 'which Mac OS are you on' ? I have had to upgrade my MacOS several times over the last 10 years to keep up with the expected iOS for my iPhone

    iPhone no longer will connect to iTunes

    Have you updated iTunes lately? Another easy thing to try is using a different port on your Mac.

    All-in-one printer recommendation?

    I recently obtained an HP OfficeJet 3830 that we really like. Totally wireless so we can all print from our phones, laptops and desktops. And, if I want to print something remotely, I can attach what I want printed to an email. Sorry, don't know about Google Print support cuz I don't have/want a Chromebook I also signed up for the cheapest version of Instant Ink, so after X number of prints, HP sends me new Ink cartridges They claim it has saved me $7.50 in the first month, but the savings aside, it's SO convenient to not have to find the right print cartridges at a store.

    Audio files from Mac to iPhone

    I've been using Audio Hijack for years. Quite versatile. Also, I personally do a phone backup to my computer at least once a month. Over the years I've found the cloud restore isn't as reliable as a 'real' restore from backup.

    Happy Birthday Adam!!

    Hope you have a great day. I know things aren't as busy as they used to be, but this is still my 'go to' source for Apple discussions.
