Have Questions?

Can you help me with the Spinning Beachball of Death?

Does seeing that mean my hard drive or computer needs to be replaced?

The Spinning Beachball signals issues with your machine, but doesn’t necessarily mean that your hard drive is dying.  We can definitely investigate and help find the cause and solve that problem with no loss of data.  Most of the time, these issues can be resolved without having to replace hardware, but it does happen occasionally.  When that happens, we make sure your data is protected and replaced. 

Is it difficult or time consuming to upgrade my software?

Do I need to worry about losing my contacts or calendar during upgrades?

Upgrading a Mac or iPhone/iPad isn’t difficult, though you always need to ensure that you have a backup.  Make sure you always have the latest software before doing any upgrading or syncing. This is particularly important  on a Mac when you’re using Microsoft Office and the Adobe Creative Suite. The best option is always to turn on iCloud backups and Time Machine and get a full backup before doing updates.

I love taking pictures, but now I’m getting messages telling me that I’m running out of memory.

What can I do to fix the problem?

Get space back on your phone using the iCloud photo library.  We’ll teach you how to maximize and leverage the efficiencies of both the iPhone and iCloud.  You’ll have access to your photos and regain memory space on your phone.

How come I’m receiving another family member’s texts?

You’re sharing the same Apple ID.  We’ll help you log out, get a new Apple ID for your relative and solve the problem.

Why would I choose iTunes for all my music choices?

When there are so many music platforms available to choose from?

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that the reason you have an Apple product is so you don’t have to buy everything a la carte.  When you buy Apple, you’re buying a seamless work and entertainment package. We teach you how to maximize those efficiencies and hopefully make not only your work easier, but your “Me-time,” more fun too.
