Apparently it downloaded the OS X El Capitan installation (under that name, or Install OS X El Capitan) in the Applications folder, which seems to be the download location. I could launch it from there. Problem solved… UPDATE: if this would occur during you Mac OSX Sierra download, the file you'd be looking for is "(Install) macOS Sierra" in the ...

Import/Export works differently in Xcode 5+. This Apple Developer guide shows you how to do it. Your account is shown under Xcode → Preferences → Accounts, and can be exported by clicking the gear icon () in the lower-left.

Use Image Capture, in the Applications folder - which is the importer 'behind' Photos.app anyway. You can set it to auto-launch any capable app, including itself [or do nothing] & set exactly where your imports should be saved. You can also dictate whether it should auto-delete from the camera afterwards, or alternatively you can manually delete any ...

Network Link Conditioner You can create a custom profile for Network Link Conditioner, using the following settings: It is a free download in Xcode (go to Xcode → Open Developer Tool → More Developer Tools… and download the Hardware IO Tools for Xcode).

Quote: "How can I know which app or process is using it?" You can try nettop(1) in the Terminal. It is pre-installed, and refreshes every few seconds to provide a dashboard of all open network connections (by process) with their usage. Better than lsof since it shows the usage data too. $ nettop Then hit 'd' and look for odd-looking entries or entries ...

rsync is a good way to go (scp is pretty much the same with fewer features). You may want to use the -Z option, which will enable zlib compression. Depending on how fast your drives/computer are, it may be faster than sending uncompressed, i.e. if your network link is saturated. You may also want the archive mode option, -a which will preserve symlinks, ...

You can't. There are restrictions with iOS multitasking that prevent apps like this from running all the time. You might be able to bypass this by jailbreaking though. Also, apps can't bypass this on the App Store due to guidelines such as: 2.5 Apps that use non-public APIs will be rejected Source: https://developer.apple.com/appstore/resources/approval/...

Yes. The easiest way to do this is to do a full backup of your iPhone 4s via iTunes. Then you would connect the new iPhone to iTunes as well and then do a Restore from the iPhone 4s backup to your new iPhone. Important The iPhone 4s was available in various sizes, namely 8GB, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB. So you will need to ensure that your new iPhone has as a ...

I had this same issue and was able to resolve it by extracting the data from a backup. I used the script (accessible via link) to accomplish this. Note that a Mac would be required - Also note, I am in no way affiliated with the source or content, just a user in the past. Run a phone backup via iTunes while connected to your computer In Finder, go to the Go ...

Your iMessages are already on your Mac, assuming you've got an iCloud account. Go to ~/Library/Messages/Archive.

Two ways that I can think of: 1. Install Apple's Network Link Conditioner 2. Use ipfw commands to create a pipe and limit bandwidth: sudo ipfw pipe 1 config bw 80KByte/s sudo ipfw add 1 pipe 1 src-port 80 To disable the pipe: sudo ipfw delete 1

In System Preferences > Sharing > Bluetooth Sharing, ensure that Folder for accepted items is set to something. If it isn't set, incoming file transfers are rejected automatically.

In a sense there are multiple answers to your question. Law Enforcement You asked how the FBI did it. In a nutshell you won't get an answer here as they paid a huge sum of money to obtain the vulnerability, which in itself only applied to a particular model of iPhone running a specific version of iOS. So the approach the FBI used most likely wouldn't work ...

Not officially. Syncing is intended to go in one direction: from iTunes to iPod. That said, there are some third-party apps that will permit this. https://tunesgo.wondershare.com/music-transfer/transfer-music-from-ipod-touch-to-computer.html Good discussion on Apple Support: https://discussions.apple.com/docs/DOC-3991

In the Mac App Store "Purchases" tab, hold down the Option key, this causes the “Pause” button to turn into “Cancel”. I tested it on 10.8 Mountain Lion, but don't know if it works on previous OSX version. Added comment - This works on Sierra as well.

The bus speed you quote is a theoretical maximum and not that the bus somehow speeds up any and all storage connected to it. An analogy would be quoting the vehicle capacity of a 10 lane highway that’s perfectly packed with cars, all of which drive themselves bumper to bumper in perfect coordination. With good buffering, ideal behavior, no hiccups you can ...

You can use an Automator workflow to download images embedded in a web page, or images linked from a web page. A good starting point for a workflow is: Get Current Webpage from Safari Get Image URLs from Webpage Download URLs You can change the workflow to use a list of web pages to fetch from. Automator is included with Mac OS X in the Applications > ...

Within iTunes, select on the "Add to Library" option: Then select on the folder containing your music. It may take some time to import, but your music should then be accessible within iTunes.

To add files from iPod classic back to iTunes, go through following steps: Connect your iPod to Mac (or PC) and Open iTunes. Pick menu "File -> Add to Library..." (or press cmd+o). In Open dialogue, navigate to your iPod Classic. It should be displayed as an external drive. Select folder iPod_Control/Music and click "Open" button. Note, iPhod_Control folder ...

You could do it with a Automator Folder Action workflow: Automator > New > Folder Action Set: Folder Action receives files and folders added to Choose folder to: Downloads Add the following Actions: Get Folders Contents [ ] Repeat for each subfolder found - Leave unchecked.

Yes, from a separate terminal you can issue this command: kill -INFO 1234 where you need to replace 1234 with the pid of your dd process. You can look it up with the ps command. Another simplification at a second terminal: sudo kill -s siginfo $(pgrep ^dd) # get dd info Another simpler way is to request the progress information from the same terminal ...

Just to complement the (terrific) nettop answer - some complained that the output is cryptic. For clean output, try: nettop -P -k state,interface -d Flags explained: -P collapses the rows of each parent process -k state,interface removes less informative columns that stand between you and the bytes in/out columns -d activates the delta option (same as ...

On El Capitan to High Sierra OS - the io is throttled in some cases. You can review these steps in case they apply in your case. Not everyone sees this speed up, but it shouldn’t be hard to test and reverse if it doesn’t help you. Anyone on Mojave and newer should look to other fixes like testing a backup to a blank or erased drive. Time Machine ridiculously ...

Unfortunately, you are very limited in what you can do with that backup. In fact, there is literally nothing you can do with an iCloud backup unless you restore the backup. This can be done, however, on any iOS device (as in iPhone, iPod, or iPad), that is at least the iOS version that the stolen device was on. For example, if the iPhone 4 was running iOS 6, ...

Personally, I'd be inclined to drop the z switch. Compression is only really useful over very slow connections (mobile data, dial-up) as the CPU is likely to become the bottleneck. I've certainly seen a drop in throughput with compression enabled. Assuming your network is trusted, you would do well to use a more efficient, but perhaps less secure SSH cipher ...

It could be interfering with existing wifi network, you can use the Airport command line tool to disconnect from other networks: Begin by linking it to a another location: ln -s \ /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/Apple80211.framework/Versions/Current/Resources/airport \ /usr/local/bin/airport Then, disconnect from the current network: sudo airport -...

I'd suggest using rsync from the terminal. It may still be slow, however: It should be faster than finder. You can stop the transfer any time. It will resume from where you left the next time you issue the same command. So, it should both reduce required time and also make it possible to stop it and resume if you actually need to use your computer. sudo ...
