I'm on Catalina and it is now 2019. I was having Apple Music open every time I connected my bluetooth earbuds (Echo Buds). Since I never use Apple Music this worked for me: In Apple Music go to "Preferences..." and "Restrictions" Click all the checkboxes under "Disable" including one for "Apple Music" Click the lock to prevent further changes Click "OK" As ...

Personal Hotspot being "on" while connecting the USB (tethering) seems to be the issue. Turn it off, connect the cable and turn it back on if required.

It sounds like you are trying to retrieve the ipsw file directly from the ios device because the device has already downloaded the file internally. There is no way to retrieve the ipsw file version from the iPhone itself - if you even could - it may not be compatible to work through the Mac. Instead you will need to redownload the file on the Mac instead

I have no idea what caused this issue, but some reboots later it works again.

The least destructive approach I've found is to: On an iOS device, force- or long-press on the song in question in the Music app, and select Delete from Library. On the Mac, wait for the iCloud Status to change to Removed. On the Mac, right click the track and choose Add to iCloud Music Library. Doing it this way ensures that the song is never removed from ...

Sounds like your LCD screen may be damaged as a result of the water contact. If possible try another replacement screen and that will confirm if its the motherboard or the visual ic chip. P.s. After having a screen replaced your iPhone is no longer waterproof!

Here's an imperfect potential solution (depends on how you want to use the feature) – see problem 3 below. I created an applescript that uses keystrokes to tell apple music to play/pause. This way, you can just use automator to trigger it based on shortcuts (you can similarly bind fast forward and rewind). Script is below: on run {input, parameters} ...

The message is self explanatory. iCloud for photos syncing is "on". You should access the photos using iCloud for Windows and iPhone's Photos.app. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204283 https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/icloud/9pktq5699m62?activetab=pivot:overviewtab See these for more info. https://support.apple.com/en-in/HT205323 How to download ...

I just got an email from the engineer I had spoken to on my last call to Apple Support and it turns out there were some server issues on their side. They asked me to try logging in again and lo, and behold, now it worked perfectly.

It magically solved itself after few days.

It is a feature of Apple Music and you need a subscription to it to use it.

I don't know of any way to disable it asking each time you connect it, but if you don't want to sync or transfer files, why connect it to the MacBook? If you're just doing it to charge, then perhaps connect it to an electrical outlet with the USB adapter it came with. While at my desk I connect my iPhone to a charging USB hub.

If I remember correctly, iTunes doesn't let you copy media from your iOS device to iTunes; likely to prevent piracy. If you have purchased the audiobooks from iTunes, you should be able to download them back. If not, which it appears you can't, you may have to contact Apple Support. Edit: Apple told me that if the author has made any edits to the book, ...

Hi you can try app Playlist tools. Finds duplicate songs and creates a new playlist without duplicates. Then you can delete the original playlist.

I found the way (but still you need iTunes to set order on your iOS device). Open iTunes Right click on a playlist Select Copy to Play Order to set the default order for this playlist when copied to a device

On your phone, navigate to Settings > Music. There you will see "Show Apple Music" and "Sync Library". Make sure both of those are off. I believe that you will not see iCloud Music Library any longer.

There doesn’t seem to be a way to customize the Touch Bar for iTunes/Music. Not all apps support customization. Apple: In many apps, like Finder, Mail, and Safari, you can customize the Touch Bar. Choose View > Customize Touch Bar. The customization window appears on your display, allowing you to choose your favorite items Note how they say “many” ...
