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...

iOS Books doesn't show synced Books

So here's a puzzle. I downloaded most of Apple's Everyone Can Create ebooks on my iMac (running Mojave). These are fairly large ebooks, and take a very long time to download on our miserable DSL. I can open them on my iMac and read them as expected. I went to iTunes and selected them to sync to my i...
