Well, it seems to support. I can't find any apple documents that says no. At the same time, i have both apple mouses, and it works with high serria. Hope this helps.

You should search for info about your mac on Everymac.com. I searched there for your mac and assuming I did it right I found this brief comment. Apple officially supports a maximum of 4 GB of RAM, but third-parties have determined that it actually supports 8 GB of RAM running Mac OS X 10.6 "Snow Leopard" and 16 GB of RAM running OS X 10.7.5 "Lion" or ...

Open System Preferences from the Apple menu in the top-left corner. Open the "Security & Privacy" preference pane. Click on the "Advanced..." button in the bottom-right corner. You may need to unlock the pane using the padlock icon in the bottom-left corner. I think you'll find "Log out after XX minutes of inactivity" ticked. Untick it. Reference: ...

I found a solution which involves using a newer version of the BootCamp.msi file. I did this by downloading the Windows Support Software on a iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2013). Since not everyone reading this will have a newer model Mac, I have provided a alternate method for retrieving this file. This method was derived from Chris F Carroll's answer to the ...

hello guys if someone still has to suffer from the same problem I have the solution worked for me. You have to open your Mac: 1 - disconnect the battery 2 - remove the keyboard and mouse connectors 3 - make a small cleaning in the region and reconnect the connectors 4 - With the battery still disconnected, connect the charger and do the nvram (option + ...

I had exactly the same issue on my 2010 iMac, it is a problem caused by one of the Boot Camp keyboard drivers being incompatible with 1903. I have temporarily fixed it by reverting to 1809 which works fine. I booted from a DVD and chose the "repair my PC" option and then chose "Revert to a previous version of Windows". Hopefully the Windows developers will ...

I cannot find any Apple documentation stating that the original Magic Mouse is unsupported in newer OS versions. Your problem is more likely to be just one of Bluetooth connectivity. Apple provides a troubleshooting document that describes the Magic Mouse and Magic Mouse 2 together. Other remedies for problems can be found here. The Magic Mouse is not one ...

Close all Word documents. Open a blank Word document. Resize the window to the preferred size. Finally quit Word by using Menu bar command Word → Quit Word or using the keyboard shortcut Command + Q. Next time when you open your Word document it should remain in the previously set window size.

That is (as is probably clear to you) not how mounting works. The contents of the /dev folder is mainly device files (as the name implies). Device files are "special files" in that they're really nodes in the file system, but the contents of these "files" are not stored inside the file system. Device files are divided into two main types: block devices ...

Unfortunately the defaults write method does not seem to be reliable anymore. The most reliable way I've found to do this is with AppleScript. The downside is that it can take 15-30 seconds to run, during which time you should not do anything else with your keyboard or mouse. The good news is that you should be able to save the AppleScript below as an app ...

Yes, there are some terminal commands to set your default setting to "none". Disable top left hot corner: defaults write com.apple.dock wvous-tl-corner -int 0 Disable top right hot corner: defaults write com.apple.dock wvous-tr-corner -int 0 Disable bottom left hot corner: defaults write com.apple.dock wvous-bl-corner -int 0 Disable bottom right hot ...

It sounds like you mistyped the command or had problems with your brew command, making the chown apply to not only /usr/local but rather / - i.e. the whole system. The command you have written is actually relatively dangerous, as you're relying on "brew --prefix" to output the right thing. In this case your command changed the owner of system files, such as ...

I was stumped with some issues for days now, reading everything I could on the subject, and I finally found the solution: it is a keychain problem with as simple solution. The solution is to delete one or more folders located in ~/Library/Keychains/, that is to say folders in the Keychains folder in our user Library. The folders to be deleted have long ...

The easiest way I know to do this is with a third party app like Bartender (https://www.macbartender.com). The app is used to hide pretty much any menu bar icon, and has a lot of great features. It's kind of a "must have" for and Mac Power User.

Okay I found a solution. In finder go to /System/Library/CoreServices/Menu Extras. Then double click Displays.menu, the icon will populate in the menu bar. To remove icons: Hold down the Command (⌘) key. Hover your mouse cursor over the icon you want to remove. Holding down the left mouse button, drag the icon out of the menu bar and onto the desktop. Let ...

There is an app on the app store named Note2Txt that will convert each note to a text file and save it to a directory/folder of your choice. The app is $0.99 and is extremely fast and efficient. I back up my notes using this app. Each text file is given the name of the note with extension .txt

UPD.: Nope, Apple's support is traditionally second to useless. Sent as feedback. Let's hope it helps… Finally I've reported that to support. Not sure whether it means they would fix it, but hopefully they should.

What I learnt today: Clicking Update next to High Sierra in App Store only downloads the installer to Applications (even though it suggests the update was installed) If you don't have 8 GB of disk space remaining after the installer (~5.23 GB) is downloaded, it is immediately deleted with no warning. So you need at least 13.23 GB of free space before you ...

I am yet to see any evidence that nfsd on macOS supports version 4. From man nfs.conf: For more information on the NFS and MOUNT protocols see Network File System Protocol Specification, RFC1094 and NFS: Network File System Version 3 Protocol Specification. And as the OP points out rpcinfo localhost consistently reports versions 2 and 3 only. I have had ...

Some of the tutorials I've been walking through outlining this process (& for me, uploading to TestFlight ex: Ray Wenderlich) specify to leave the CA email blank. The hint text states it's required, but I was ignoring this as the tutorials stated. By just adding the email address of the certificate authority (my admin account registered to itunes connect)...

Is this something that comes preinstalled in a MacBook? No. It is a 3rd party app. Is it okay to completely remove it? Yes, it is okay to remove it if you don't use it. It must have been installed by the previous owner. If this MacBook is a shared computer and it's possible that some other user may be using the app, it's safe to leave it. Further ...

I am also facing this issue of the installer being 16 MB. I tried several times but out of luck. Then I downloaded the DMG files directly fro Apple's site and used it to update my system BaseSystem.dmg BaseSystem.chunklist InstallInfo.plist InstallESDDmg.pkg AppleDiagnostics.dmg AppleDiagnostics.chunklist Source

Doesn't appear to be a hardware problem after all. Resetting the NVRAM/PRAM seems to have done the trick. Before doing this, the problem was occurring about every two minutes. I've now run the system for 24 hours without an incident. Edit: the problem is back after three days. I would appreciate any ideas.

I think I got the answer. Open Disk Utility Select the root of Internal drive on the left pane. Click Partition button on the top pane. Delete un-wanted partition(s). It's easy if you know!

I believe I have found the culprit...iMazing...or rather, iMazing's communicate-to-iOS-device-via-Wifi feature. At some point over the last year or so, I had installed iMazing which, for those who are unaware, is an iOS device management and backup utility. And as mentioned above, one of their features is communication with iOS devices via WiFi. When this ...

So I tried again with another apple senior advisor today as the previous one would never do what he said he would. I think the issue is solved.... Heres a screen shot of what she had me uncheck in the Messages preferences tab on the iMac and the messages are all now acting the same in syncing...

You don't need additional software for this, the standard vi installed by macOS can edit binary files. cd /Applications/Microsoft\ Word.app/Contents/MacOS/ cp Microsoft\ Word Microsoft\ Word.orig vi -b Microsoft\ Word Now, assuming you are not used to vi: Type /app-sandbox followed by Return to jump to the definition you want to change Press Return again ...

There's an app (in the Mac App Store) that lets you name Spaces via the menubar. It also lets you give each Space a unique icon, and tells you how you spend time across your Spaces (and the apps within them). Because macOS APIs are limited, the names stay in the app and don't show up in Mission Control. But they are persistent. The app also lets you jump ...

Based on this Apple support article, I gathered that the purgeable space might be taken up by local snapshots. I had already backed up since emptying the Trash, but I have more than one backup drive. I removed the backup disks that aren't accessible at the moment and some time later my system drive's purgeable space was shown to have been alchemically ...

I had the exact same issue using a combination of ZFS Samba, could create files on the mounted drive when testing but trying to create sparsebundles failed. Turns out as others have pointed out that it might have to do with filesystems used, I had to add vfs objects = catia fruit streams_xattr zfsacl for it to work. source: https://ogris.de/howtos/freebsd-...
