We all know Apple products are much easier to use than their competitors products. Still, with desktop computers, notebook computers, iPods, iPads, iPhones, apps, iTunes, Apple TV, Apple Watch, and various flavors of Mac OS X/macOS and other software, most mortals can get stuck.

This thread is intended as a place where folks can post their questions and the friendly Apple user community can help them out, from simple questions to complex. It is also OK to ask general troubleshooting questions, post news or give tips about Apple products and their usage. Hopefully some experts will SubjectMark this thread and visit occasionally with their advice. Thanks in advance, experts.

For those needing help with PC and Windows products, please check out the excellent Computer Learning thread, moderated by goldworldnet.

If you would like to give Apple feedback directly, you can go here:

To report bugs in Apple products, try here:


The basic rule is that all participants must be polite to each other. Try to imagine that you are sitting in a living room with everyone else. Don't say anything you wouldn't say in that situation.

Please use proper punctuation and capitalization in your posts, don't use "text speak." Basically, please just show some respect for the English language in this forum.

Due to SI policy, political comments are off limits here, there are many threads on SI in which to discuss politics, this will not be one of them.

Under no circumstances is anyone to post information to circumvent copy protection of copyrighted materials. This includes commercial music files, software, serial numbers, or anything of the kind.


Violators of the rules will usually receive a warning, and a second offense will probably result in a ban. In the case of especially egregious violations, a ban may come without warning.

Bans may also be imposed for being a general nuisance and/or generally disrupting civil discourse.
