We've had a lot of requests from clients, friends, and family asking us for advice on software problems they're seeing with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod running iOS 7.

We're glad that Apple gave us a great way to get rid of our software problems with the advent of iCloud. Most people will be able to fix iOS software problems via iCloud restore and avoid the Genius Bar entirely. The following steps a [...]

I sat down to play with the Golden Master release of iOS 6 tonight so I could familiarize myself with the software before our customers download it next week. While the majority of my interactions have been perfectly good, there is one terrible experience that I've spent way too much time trying to figure out. With Apple looking to control more and more of its software, they replaced Google Maps with custom-built mapping software in iOS 6. Initially, I thought that would be great -- better fun [...]

We've been somewhat quiet over here lately... it's because we were focusing our efforts on the MacWorks blog at this point. We've covered iCloud, iOS 5, iTunes Match, and Mac OS 10.7 Lion at great detail there.

We also added our Gmail configuration article for those of you looking to setup Google's Email the correct way on your Mac and iOS device. We'll cover adva [...]
You may have noticed that we’ve been on a guide-creation-spree with Google Calendar, Google Contacts and Google Email (Gmail). We’ve already created the complete guide to Google Calendar Sync and a follow-up for Google Contact Sync… now we’re going to talk about Gmail. This is, by far, the easiest setup of the three. If you handle contacts and calendars, then you should be able to breeze through this. By the way, thanks for all of the interest in our guides so far. We’ll be putting out a couple follow-up guides for issues that you’ve run into that aren’t covered in our original guides: resetting Sync Services and resetting the Address Book. This guide covers a Gmail account configuration in Apple Mail and iOS. If you’re following this guide with a regular “@gmail.com” email address, then insert “gmail” in the “domain” section of the corresponding pictures. If you’re using a Google Apps account, insert your Google Apps domain instead of “domain.com.” If you’re looking for configuration settings for other devices, click the mail envelope icon to the right and let us know. Click the “Continue Reading” link to get started. […]
