I real kicking myself, I had the battery version and it was working good but I was not paying attention to the batteries.

When it stopped working, I went to change batteries and they leaked like crazy, I'm talking it was like Charlie Sheen had a columbian gold party in there.

Now it refusing to come back on after I cleaned it out with rubbing alcohol and a qtip. Think it FUBARd.

I feeling hard to pelt out 700-1000 for a mouse so I might just look for a cheap BT mouse to use yes.

New MacBook Pro Models to Feature Flat-Edged Design, MagSafe, No Touch Bar and More Ports

Apple is working on two new MacBook Pro models that will feature significant design changes, well-respected Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said today in a note to investors that was obtained by MacRumors.

1. The two new models are equipped with about 14-inch and 16-inch displays, respectively.
2. In terms of casing design, the new models cancel the curvy design of existing models’ top and bottom parts and adopt a flat-edged form factor design similar to the ‌iPhone 12‌.
3. The ‌MagSafe‌ charging connector design is restored.
4. The OLED touch bar is removed, and the physical function buttons are restored.
5. There is no Intel CPU option for the new models.
6. They are equipped with more types of I/O, and most users may not need to purchase additional dongles.

I got through to my bank and was able to get a US address. I was able to purchase it and it has shipped, i'm shipping to my skybox in miami (inviare), hoping i get through, i heard about apple not shipping to freight forwarders, maybe i will get lucky. But if not, i think i can just ship to my cousin in texas, and have him mail it to the skybox in miami?

I tried buying an ipad on Apple Trinidad website to ship to Trinidad and I could not do that. When I contacted Customer Service I was told all the items are in Spanish and cannot be shipped here.

Good afternoon.

I am trying to migrate data from a OnePlus 8 Pro android phone (running Android 11) to a new Apple iPhone 12 Pro (bought directly from Apple). I downloaded Apple's Move to iOS app to the OnePlus phone. I followed the instructions on the iPhone when setting it up for the first time. It was connected to the WiFi network. The mobile data connection on the OnePlus was disconnected so it was also only connected to the WiFi network. However, when the iPhone generates the code to input into the android phone and I input the code, I see a quick small message at the bottom of the OnePlus screen saying connection was successful, but then immediately afterwards the OnePlus is giving me an error message that it is not detecting the iPhone.

What am I doing wrong? The instructions are straightforward enough. I went on Apple's help website and did everything they recommended, but still no success.

Any advice will be sincerely appreciated.

Thank you.

Battery life on my 2 year old iPhone XR has taken a hit (battery health is at 86%). Want to hold off til the 2021 iPhones are out before replacing.

Do we have any authorized Apple Repair centers here? Or at least somewhere that can change the battery to a new ORIGINAL battery and also that I don’t get any genuine battery verification errors?

Carry it by a third party and get the battery replaced. It’s not expensive and worth it.

^^ Don’t let a level 10 user on an Apple Tuner forum get to you.
Install the Apple Support app on your iPhone and talk to the people themselves.

https://apps.apple.com/us/app/apple-support/id1130498044

Or you could call them

PS: Who knows the issue could be the Android device.

Apple does not make original parts available to 3rd parties. So the parts you buy online may not always work like OEM.
Screens are not as bright or responsive and as you said batteries are hit or miss.
It’s not always convenient to get the devices repaired at an official Apple Authorized dealer so we get what’s available.

Should I repair the screen on my upgraded 2012 MBP or go for the M1? The M1 line is impressive and I have looked at several reviews. Will be using it for photo & video editing (4K files etc.) Really hard to decide to buy soon or wait til M1X line comes out.

Wait it you can, especially if you output to an external display.
Don’t buy first generation products from any company as you end up being a beta tester.
Wait for the update.

Trying to purchase an iPhone through Apple website using PayPal. The deduction went through fine via PayPal, no issues. But the Apple website says authorization error. Check paypal account.
There is no issues with the PayPal as the move is already withdrawn, just waiting Apple to take it.
Anyone knows what’s happening here?
Shipping to my skybox and the address of the skybox is linked to PayPal.
