Yes, virtually any postpaid Verizon customer can sign up for the iPhone Upgrade Program through Apple's web site or in store. (So can Sprint and AT&T customers, although T-Mobile is currently in-store only.) This is separate from any agreements you have with Verizon, and you will still have to finish paying off your current phone with them.

Once all the updates have been installed and OS X 10.6.8 is installed the App Store suggest to upgrade to OS X 10.11.6. Therefore, it plays no role whether it is an OS X servers or a "normal" OS X. As soon as it is 10.6.8, it is eligible to upgrade.

I usually buy any branded memory with the same pins and MHz and it always work. But there are brand names that manufacture for Apple products, like OWC. But Corsair and Crucial etc have memory sets as well, specifically designed for Mac: Adamanta | ArchMemory | Crucial | Corsair

You will need two "16GB Kits" to get the full 32GB. I have personally done this in my iMac 27" The memory that I recommend is Crucial 16GB Kit (8GBx2) DDR3L - CT2K8G3S186DM I recommend Crucial because they are very reliable and they have a lifetime warranty. There are brands that are cheaper, but (IMO) it's simply not worth the cost savings of giving up ...

Considering the instructions for the removal of Office 2016 for Mac I think you can without a problem follow the instructions for removal of 2011. I have quickly compared both instructions and did not see any matching folders being mentioned. However, please compare it yourself and make a backup before you continue. I suggest you make a Time Machine backup ...

So it's been a long time since I originally posted this question. I didn't update my RAM (although I'm thinking about it), but I changed my hard drive to a Samsung SSD. The change is radical. The computer is not slow at all anymore. There are no more "freezing", and it takes exactly 15 seconds to boot, instead of something like 1 minute or more. Any ...

Although probably not technically the fastest, I upgraded my late 2011 13" MacBook Pro which has an SSD and just-installed 8GB of RAM to El Capitan from Mountain Lion. After addressing a few kinks with iCloud Drive or the App Store using too much bandwidth for no apparent reason, I don't notice a speed hit in day to day usage or boot-up, and I believe I have ...

I am recommending a system upgrade to the latest OS X version El Capitan. Unless your doing some heavy 3D graphic jobs there's no major performance issue with the latest OS X version. Most important replace your slow hard disk with a SSD and MacBook will so much faster.

TL;DR: You probably want to exchange the RAM you bought for new sticks. From your picture, it looks like that's a MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012). As you mentioned, it does support 2x8 GB (16 GB total) at 1600 MHz (PC3-12800). If the issue doesn't occur with the original RAM, you can be fairly sure that your memory slots are good. It's very likely that the ...

I am having a similar problem. Just bought two memories 8GB Kingston for my MacbookPro9,2. (Macbook Pro 13" mid 2012 i5 2.5) My guess is that memories slot had some things (dust maybe) and that cause the problems. I tested the memories separately, and the machine worked fine. Right now I have the 16GB of RAM and so far (2h) so good. But if anyone knows ...

I suggest trying to put the SuperDrive back, and then seeing if the SATA cable for that works, if it does, you can switch the HDD for the SSD to check if it's faulty. Also - there are inexpensive power supply / USB data connection kits so you could get one of those and test the bracket you purchased external to either MacBook and see if everything works ...

I have your same hardware (macbook and ssd) and the problem was the sata cable of notebook. For me surprise, I dont pay nothing to fix it, even my notebook is out of guarantee, there is a recall from apple for this cable. Go you to Apple Authorized service and good lucky !

For others finding this thread because they too have the problem: On my wife's MacBook Pro, the answer turned out to be that the laptop could not differentiate between the 2.4GHz and 5GHz version of the wireless, and if it connected to a different one previously, OS X told her the password was wrong. The cure was to 'split' the two wi-fi networks by ...
