The 'brand/marketing name' & the model designation number don't ever match. The iPhone 6S's model designation is 8,1 [regular 6S] or 8,2 [6S Plus] You can see a list of all models, including marketing names & model designations at Everymac's iPhone Specs page They actually went out of sync with the second ever iPhone released. It was called the 3G, ...

Traditionally on a UK keyboard (in the olden days, 80’s and 90’s) the 96th character was a pound sign, which replaced the American pound sign. By which, I mean # which Americans call the pound sign, and the rest of us call a hash. The UK keyboard had a £ instead (Great British Pound). That’s the true answer.

Kernel Panics are usually hardware issues, and you did the right thing by running the hardware diagnostics. Sometimes the hardware issues are intermittent and not caught by hardware diagnostics, and in these cases you have to wait for a pattern to appear out of multiple panics. The other source of Kernel Panics, though, is the kernel software, including ...

I like to just do speed tests as you adjust the antenna when I don’t have a software defined radio and/or oscilloscope to measure the actual signals. I’ve not seen any good tool that uses the compass or just shows that weak a signal since the noise is so large compared to the signal. So, no - you’ll need to try them sequentially and also sight things ...

This is not a problem. I have a 2010 iMac with an HDD and I have Temperature Gauge 4.1. It reports the temperature at 14 different locations in my iMac. My computer is basically idling right now. 9 of the 14 locations have a temperature that is over 60°C, with the Power Supply Heatsink reporting 75°C. The locations that are not reporting temperatures over 60°...

That image is hard to make out, but I trust the people in the process with Apple repair for a couple reasons. One, what's their incentive to be wrong - they get paid to repair product and make you happy. Also, they see things perfectly under inspection even if that photo is blurry. I would make a decision - is it worth paying for this repair? If so, call ...

There is no issue, 60Hz is the highest refresh. According to the official specifications, that model Mac has a refresh rate of Support for 1080p resolution at up to 60Hz Support for 3840-by-2160 resolution at 30Hz Support for 4096-by-2160 resolution at 24Hz The cable may be able to support the bandwidth but, more importantly, the graphics chip must be able ...

There is a software ceiling that does not allow Macs to push out a higher refresh rate. So even if you have a monitor that supports a much higher refresh rate, say 240 Hz, the Mac will still output 60 Hz cause the MacOS sets the limit there. I am only aware that this is the case with MBP and MBAir, so I wont comment on other devises. And therefore there's ...

Although it is an old thread and a lot of good answers have already been given, I would like to add a point no one mentioned so far. If you switch your phone to airplane mode and the battery is running out of power below the minimal level required for the RTC (Real Time Clock) to run, or even better if you disconnect the battery, once you turn back the phone ...

Start with force restarting your iPod Shuffle. If that doesn't work there are three things you need to check: The USB port is functional. Try another device (any device is fine). If it works, then you know your USB port is working. If it's not, then you'll either need to use a different port (if available) or another computer Check the cable. The USB ...

I had the same problem and I was thinking that my Mac had some current problem into the usb connectors. I solved the problem using usb to lightning cables from a different brand, certified for Apple devices. They appear to be a little more thick than the original ones. I saw that problem in various older iMac (2012-2014) and every time I solved using a cable ...

To do any sort of benchmarking consistency is the key. When benchmarking your software whether it’s to be published as part of your marketing material or not, it needs to be consistent across technical specifications, not just “line” (MacBook Pro 13”). I am attempting to measure the performance of a common piece of software on the current line up of 13” and ...

Items you've considered are already good! Disabling internet stops lot of stray processes. You can try Safe mode to do the tests if they don't need the services disabled in that mode. Also consider making a new user account for doing the testing. https://support.apple.com/HT201262 Safe mode prevents your Mac from loading certain software as it starts up, ...

Some types of kernel extensions – including USB Networking – are deprecated in macOS 11. These kernel extensions have to be rewritten by the vendor using DriverKit to be compatible with Big Sur. See https://developer.apple.com/support/kernel-extensions (USB networking). While macOS 11 is in development, you can enable the loading of deprecated KEXTs by ...

Contact the vendor to get a driver which is compatible with Big Sur. It may take a while for the vendor to do so though (Big Sur is still in Beta after all), or never happen if they rather focus on selling you new stuff. Alternatively you may try https://github.com/chris1111/Wireless-USB-Big-Sur-Adapter (which is linked from the Github page in your post) or ...

Never mind your MBP's health: a flickering screen can have a negative effect on YOUR health. Spending regular time in front of a poor display can cause headaches, eye strain, fatigue, dizziness, nausea -- to say nothing of bringing on seizures in epileptics. A 'cool cyberpunk effect' is not worth your health. Your MBP is a relatively new machine: you may ...

No - the LCD panel can turn on and off many, many times so if it’s that you should enjoy the show as long as you can stand it. No - the wiring can short, but I’ve never heard of that causing any damage up or down stream. Anything is possible, but it’s highly unlikely. No - the GPU fails in the same way as the other parts. Entertaining, then annoying, then it ...

Without putting hands on with the proper test and diagnostic equipment, there is absolutely no way to tell. I used the original USB-C cable from Samsung, not anything cheap, so why did this happen? Until you test the cable, you have no idea whether or not it's at fault. However, if you have any doubt as to the functionality and reliability of said cable, ...
