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...

Re: Mojave... So Far, So Good

I think I'm going to like having Apple News on my Mac. However, News on Mojave has a couple of bugs (at least): Links in text don't work... at all. The Share menu isn't working properly. If I click the More (...) button, I get sent to System Preferences > Extensions > Share Menu, instead of finding...

Dynamic Desktop Images

Mojave ships with two dynamic desktop images, that change throughout the day, and also with the seasons. Here's an article about how to simulate this effect, more or less. If you have a newer camera with an associated iPhone app, you could probably automate the hourly picture taking. https://applein...

Re: iPhone XS Arrives

My iPhone X showed up as expected. I suppose it is possible that Apple hasn't added a custom image for the XS yet or that the internal identifier for the image is hard coded so the app doesn't just keep using the X image. Or my case could be one of a kind. By the way, I did find this iTunes 12.8 won...

Voice Memos Returning after Deletion

If you use iOS Voice Memos, you may have seen previously deleted recordings mysteriously return to your iPhone. Searching on the web, I found one main explanation. When you sync your iPhone, a copy of each voice memo is copied into iTunes in a music playlist called, appropriately enough, Voice Memos...
