    Avoid Ransom Requests with a Unique iCloud Password

    We've been hearing reports from people whose Macs have been locked
    remotely via Find My Mac, with the criminals responsible holding access
    to the Mac hostage until they receive a ransom in Bitcoin.

       
     
         
     

    iTunes 12.7 Can't Download or Manage iOS Apps Anymore

    revolve around features Apple removed, including...

     

    Find Your Way around Airports and Malls with the Maps App

    When you're in a huge mall or airport, it's all too easy to take a wrong turn and get lost. Happily, your iPhone will increasingly be able to help prevent that. Maps in iOS 11 now knows about some indoor places, such as...

     
         
       

    How to Avoid Downer Stories
    in Apple's "For You" News Suggestions

    MBS BLOG SPECIAL EDITION

    Why iOS 11 Is the Most Important Version Yet for iPad Users

    Apple has long argued that you can use the iPad for productivity but hasn't backed that claim
    up with the necessary features in iOS. Until now, that is, with the new iPad-centric capabilities
    of iOS 11. These changes mean that an iPad running iOS 11 is more like a Mac, nd that's a
    good thing for those who want to do real work with their iPads.


       

    Apple Introduced iPhone 8, iPhone X, Apple Watch Series 3, and Apple TV 4K

    The big news was the revolutionary iPhone X, which eliminates
    the Home button and unlocks by recognizing your face. Apple
    also announced the evolutionary iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus ;
    a cellular-capable Apple Watch Series 3; and the Apple TV 4K,
    which supports 4K HDR video.

     

       

    7 Great New Features in watchOS 4

    With watchOS 4 now arriving on Apple Watch users' wrists, it's
    time to make sure you aren't missing out on any of the important features and to share a few tips for how to use them. watchOS 4 works on all Apple Watch models, even the original Apple Watch.

    It does require iOS 11, so if you've been using your Apple Watch with an iPhone 5 or 5c, you'll need to stick with watchOS 3 until
    you get a new iPhone.

     

       

    The Top Features You'll Want to Try in iOS 11

    Even if you're not buying a new iPhone this year, you can still
    enjoy a hefty dose of "New and Improved!" with Apple's iOS 11, which provides a host of new capabilities.

    Hold on tight, there's a lot to cover, and we have another article coming about the iPad-specific changes in iOS 11. After you
    install iOS 11, you'll notice a few things right off.

     

       

    What's New in macOS 10.13 High Sierra and
    Its Main Apps

    Apple's eye-catching Desktop image of the High Sierra mountains makes it easy to confirm that your Mac is running High Sierra, the most noteworthy new features are invisible! These changes are aimed at improving your Mac's performance.

    Don't worry that there's nothing new in High Sierra to play with you'll find plenty to do in Apple's apps.

    SEPTEMBER 2017 MBS BLOG TIPS


     
       

    What the %@& Is Draining My MacBook Battery?

    If your MacBook's battery charge is dropping faster than you
    think is reasonable, it's time to look for the culprit.

    Click the Battery icon in the menu bar and wait a few seconds
    for the Battery menu to display power information, including ...

     

     
       

    Turn Down the Music! (Eh? What did you say?)

    Long gone are the days of ghetto blasters and monster speakers—now we pump music directly into our eardrums with EarPods and AirPods.

    Noise-induced hearing loss is a real problem, though, with millions of people damaging their hearing by playing music too loud, sometimes inadvertently.

     

     
         
     

    The Easy Shortcut to Delete Unwanted Photos Quickly

    It's a lot easier to take photos than it is to delete them, particularly in Photos on the Mac. You've done the dance: select a photo, press Delete, & press Return when Photos asks if you want to delete the photo
    but you...

     

    Did You Know Your iPhone Can Help You Find Your Parked Car?

    The iPhone's Maps app automatically records where you park your car as long as the iPhone is connected to the car's Bluetooth system. It even notifies you of this when you get out of the car. But how do you get back to the
    car after you've done your errands?

     

     
         
     

    When Should You Upgrade to macOS 10.13 High Sierra, iOS 11, watchOS 4, and tvOS 11?

    To every thing there is a season, and we're fast approaching the time when Apple harvests the fruit of
    the last year and releases new versions of macOS, iOS, watchOS, and tvOS.

     

    What Is APFS (and Why Should
    You Care)?

    A major change in macOS 10.13 High Sierra is the switch to Apple's new Apple File System, or APFS.
    With any luck, you'll barely notice the change, just as almost no one did earlier this year when Apple updated millions of iOS devices to APFS with iOS 10.3.

     

     
         
     

    Use Personal Hotspot Tethering to Avoid Dodgy Wi-Fi While Traveling

    Finding good Internet access for your Mac or Wi-Fi-only iPad while traveling can be maddening. Look in your
    Wi-Fi menu while sitting in an airport and you'll see a bunch of networks, most of which require a password
    or won't connect for other reasons.

     

    Learn to Use the Color Picker: Put Some Color in Your Mac

    If you're over 40, you probably remember the point in The Wizard of Oz where the movie switches from black-and-white to Technicolor( & if not, go see it!). It wasn't the first color film, but the vibrant images of Dorothy's ruby slippers, the yellow brick road, and the Emerald City ...
