Re: Customizing Login Screen

I think it's a great idea to have a way for honest folks to help if they can. I suppose the same could be done on iPads.

Re: Customizing Login Screen

I used this once on a MacBook that was, in fact, stolen from our house near PA. A week or so later, I got a call from a computer store in California, where a young man was trying to sell the MacBook. I told the clerk to call his local police, explained that the MacBook was stolen. I also notified ou...

Another Apple Scam

This phishing attempt is new to me, but apparently has been noticed by others previously. Of course, none of the links are real, except for my own email address. If you get email that's designed to look like it's from Apple, here's a page on how to report it: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204759...

iPhone XS/XR: How to power off, etc.

Some of these button-pressing sequences are pretty arcane, but I've used them all over the years. iPhone XS/XR: How to power off, force restart, enter DFU, recovery, and more https://9to5mac.com/2018/10/09/iphone-xs-max-iphone-xr-how-to-power-off-force-restart-enter-dfu-recovery-emergency-sos-video/

iOS 12.0.1

iOS 12.0.1 fixes some issues a few iPhone XS users have seen:
Some users' iPhone XS models were reconnecting to WiFi at a slower speed than the fastest available.
Some users' iPhone XS models did not start charging when plugged in if they were asleep when plugged in.
And a couple of other minor fixes.

Re: Safari and Favicons

A little more on this process... Here's the web site I used to create the .ico format necessary for web sites: http://www.favicon.cc/ This web page mentions the hidden formats Apple's Preview can create. Unfortunately, Preview in Mojave does not include the .ico format. https://coderwall.com/p/89p9k...

Safari and Favicons

Safari 12, included in Mojave, but also available as an update, now has the ability to show favicons in tabs. Favicons are those tiny icons to the left of a URL, the ones you can drag to the desktop to save a web location file. Many sites have custom icons. I noticed recently that my own domain, eug...

Re: iPhone 6s battery problems

Followup: After a couple of years of heavy use*, this iPhone 6s was reporting that the battery needed replacement. We made an appointment at the Tacoma Apple Store, where the replacement cost only $30. * I used the 6s for a year and then passed it to my wife, who listens to a lot of podcasts and a l...

Re: Everyone Can Create

One oddity I've found: There are four books in this series, Drawing, Photo, Music and Video, plus a teacher's guide. But if I check All in Series, a fifth book appears, Photography. If I request the download, it will start to download, then fail after some time. If I click Show in Store, I'm informe...
