There were a couple of steps: Log out and log in to iCloud on both machines Ensure that 'Safari' is checked in the iCloud System Preferences After this the Chrome icon popped up on my Mac when browsing in safari on the iphone. (Chrome is the default browser on the mac) I also got the safari icon on the iphone lock screen when ...

Upgraded to Yosemite 10.10 and problem is now fixed.

Yes handoff is available for Safari in Yosemite and iOS 8.02, I just tested it. But it does not work with Google Chrome as shown in the screenshot (at least not yet and in my case). But you can use iCloud tabs on your iPhone. It shows you which tabs are opened on other devices, have a look a this page. It is for iOS7 but it works the same in iOS8.

From my experience apple prioritizes quietness over cooling. I see my MBPr frequently reaching 95C on medium loads, if SMCFancontrol's stats are to be believed. You can use that app to manually increase fan speed and provide more comfortable cooling. I raised mine to 3000rpm from 2200rpm on my 2012 Retina 15". On a personal note, I'm very grateful for the ...

You could use the Guest account and Parental Controls. Otherwise create a separate account for each user if thats manageable and setup custom parental controls that block what you want for the separate users. Set up parental controls

Correct - you are a missing that component. Assuming you purchased directly from Apple, You’re supposed to get the magsafe, as well as the extension AC adaptor. Contact Apple support or visit your local Apple store if applicable.

Best for retina = every on-screen pixel is represented by two pixels on the display More space = every on-screen pixel is represented by one pixel on the display. In between these two settings every on-screen pixel is represented by 1.5 pixels on the display. Because there is no such thing as half a pixel, the drawing is not exact so there will be ...

I have a MacBook Pro Retina. I connected a 27" Asus Display directly to the HDMI port, and a 27" Samsung Display to the Thunderbolt port through a DVI to VGA adapter. I now have three displays stacked horizontally, with quite some nice real estate. Both external displays are 1920 x 1080 and have the Mac with Retina resolution of 2560 x 1600. You can do at ...

It means it isn't available in your region yet. You just need to give it a bit of time.

Change the routers security to WEP and this problem goes away. However WEP security is less secure and you may have to choose between the lesser of the two evils.

There is a problem to solve and for that we need your Console report for that. For now try following: Uncheck the Translucent Menu Bar -option in System Preferences>Desktop & Screensaver>Desktop tab

Absolutely it is safe. It has been designed for that, it does not have a locked in plug, but a magnetically coupled plug for that reason. I have done that on purpose or by accident (tripping over the cable) many times without problems.

Here is the official link that says that you can connect a 4k monitor but at 30HZ, and on some setups (e.g. macbook pro retina late 2013) at 60HZ http://support.apple.com/kb/ht6008 Also, the support article on thunderbolt FAQ is relevant to what monitors can be driven at high resolutions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3382#11

Since your AHT did not detect problems with CPU or GPU or RAM or Disk next step is to look at your Console log. Based on the Console log you published it is your: BSD process name corresponding to current thread: kextd creating problems sometimes when you insert the USB. The kextd is responsible for loading unloading drivers as needed. Since it is ...

I managed to get full 3840×2160 @30Hz on my late 2012 rMBP (intel HD4000) using just a mini-displayport to displayport cable and an app called SwitchResX. The only possible difference is that I used the AOC U2868PQU 4K display which uses MST and I think your display is only SST. Anyway Here are my custom settings, you need to reboot the machine to apply ...

What's officially "supported" and what's possible don't match. I managed to get 4K out of it at 30Hz. I took a screenshot as proof: Just a normal mini-displayport<->displayport cable was used. More details in my answer here: http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/147765/39878 or on this blog post: ...

I see no reason why you could not plug three external monitors into a Mac, whether it's running OS X, or Windows under bootcamp. There are two Thunderbolt connectors and one HDMI connector, and they all work as video outputs - the driver should be able to handle a monitor plugged into each of these. As the comment on the question mentions, Windows does not ...

Based on this post and the other one at MacBookPro10,1 goes to gray screen when a USB is inserted : I would say that you're probably looking at a faulty logic board. The system should be taken into a Genius Bar or an authorized Apple repair centre for further evaluation and/or repair.

Based on this post and the other one at MacBookPro10,1 had problems booting, now some system images are pink and fuzzy : I would say that you're probably looking at a faulty logic board. The system should be taken into a Genius Bar or an authorized Apple repair centre for further evaluation and/or repair.

Battery life is heavily dependent upon how you use the system. Things such as leaving screen brightness at maximum can have significant effect on how quickly power is drained from a charged battery. Applications such as running guest operating systems inside of a virtual machine can be I/O- and CPU-intensive tasks that will also reduce the longevity of a ...

To get a better look at your power consumption: Open the Activity Monitor in your Utility folder. Click on the Energy Tab. Look how much power is Each application consuming, and how much over time. Also look for "app nap" capability (application will go to sleep if not used)

It sounds like your USB did not contain the clean bootable version. I would suggest you start over and follow the procedure from Apple. You can get a copy of 10.9.5 from here or from Apple Store. http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1761 Make sure the USB is single partition and minimal 8 Gig. (no other partitions on that disk)

There are two likely issues afoot here: Your System Management Controller has gotten some corruption. You're seeing potential hardware-/sensor failures. To reset your SMC, follow these instructions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964 If that doesn't solve the problem, I'd run Apple Diagnostics and see whether it picks up on any hardware problems. If it ...

I found out here that the difference is very minor in gaming performances. Not to mention that the NVIDIA is a add on device while the Intel is integrated,resulting in more power consumption and graphics mode switching--that you might not want.

The connector on the XP941 is different from the connector on the SSD PCIe cards used in the late MacBook Pros.

All I can really suggest is that you purchase a Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter, along with a VGA cable (D-Sub cable), and use that with your MacBook Pro. (the blue socket beneath the DVI socket is the VGA socket.)

SwitchRes X might be able to help you, it can modify screen settings that are usually inaccessible. There is a custom resolutions section

You can try to reset the SMC by following the steps here. If that doesn't work it looks like your backlight is broken, and you should ask for a replacement if you still have Apple Care.

Because objects are smaller a sharper your eyes are trying to focus on that. The constant focusing strains your eye muscles, resulting in eye pain and headache. I would see a optometrist and get a prescription, or just buy a reading glasses at any store, starting a 0.5 strength to see it that helps (they cost around $5)

Never got this working in the end, but instead I fixed it with a neat workaround. All MacBook Pros come with inbuilt optical out. Using a small adapter I could use that to digitally send the sound (just like USB) to the D1.

http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/macbook_pro/specs/macbook-pro-core-i5-2.4-13-late-2013-retina-display-specs.html says "This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560x1600 on two external displays via Thunderbolt.

I had the same problems as most of the statements and tried most of the suggestions to no avail. I finally reloaded Maverick, which takes a long time, using the Mac utilities. So far trackpad works like a charm. I don't know if Apple made some changes since Maverick first came out or the first load became corrupted but works great. Hope this helps as I ...

Yes, this perfectly normal behaviour, 55 is a very reasonable temperature as well. If you start using your device more heavily, like encoding video, playing games, or installing certain software, you should start to notice the fans picking up.
