This is called hand off It allows you to continue where you left off in an app on one Device when you are accessing another device. It works via the AppleID not the local user. When your Mac computers and iOS devices are within Bluetooth range of each other (about 33 feet or 10 meters), they can automatically “hand off” what you’re doing from one ...

Without special software or hardware to do so, multiple connections are not combined for increased throughput, knowing as bonding. The connections are utilized in the order shown in System Preferences > Network (screenshot below). You can change the order by clicking the gear icon > Set Service Order.

From Everymac… In addition to the internal display, this model can support an external display up to 3840x2160 via Thunderbolt 2 (4K UltraHD). Third-parties have discovered that it also can support two simultaneous 27-Inch Thunderbolt displays at 2560x1140 each in lieu of a single UltraHD display. I'm tempted to think that 2560x1140 is a typo & ...

Having looked at the iMac (Early 2001) - Technical Specifications and comparing them with the information found on Wikipedia for Ultra ATA/Parallel ATA I do not see any technical limitation on why it should not work. What you need to be aware of, however, is that in case the bus speed is lower than the ATA/133 (e.g. ATA/66 or ATA/100), the hard drive would ...

This particular model that you're looking at is referring to the Late 2013 model of the iMac, 27" display version (model number ME089LLAUZ from the linked store page and verifiable through Apple's own KB article). Apple sells this on their store still, and you can order a custom configuration with up to 32 GB of RAM as specified on its product page. This ...

Yeah, your video card is bad. The good news is that your iMac can run pretty well without a video card; it'll be fine for everything but the most demanding video games. So what you need to do is move the video driver out of the way, so the kernel doesn't try to load it. Do an "ls" in /System/Library/Extensions ("sudo ls /System/Library/Extensions") and ...

I had the same problem and was able to solve it by deleting iTunes and reinstalling. The Finder tries quite hard to stop you from deleting iTunes; instead you can open Terminal.app and 'sudo rm -rf /Applications/iTunes.app'. You can download the replacement copy of iTunes from https://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

I ran into the same problem, iMAC would not boot past the white screen, and I had lost my recovery disks. so I went to Apple website and bought more recovery disks, and when it booted up into recovery mode, it was not showing a target disk to install the op system because it was corrupt, so I then opened up the disk utility and erased the hard drive and then ...

As a temporary solution, you can execute iTunes binary directly by doing /Applications/iTunes.app/Contents/MacOS/iTunes in the terminal. Code -10699 returned by open -a iTunes indicates some error in Launch Services (similar error codes are documented but the very thing is not). Executing binary in this way somehow sidesteps the problem.
