In iTunes 12.2, which supports Apple Music, you can still create your own custom radio station. There are several ways to do it, and you can create a station from the song or the artist. John shows you how.
Apple Music comes with a three month free trial, and after that a US$9.99 a month fee kicks in. If you aren't sure Apple's new streaming music service is for you and don't want to forget to disable automatic payments, read on to find out what to do.
Today's Quick Tip is truly quick but also truly useful. Do you want your Watch to keep, say, the music app active instead of switching to the clock face when you raise your wrist? Or would you like to make some third-party app stay open so you don't need to switch back to it constantly? We'll tell you how to turn on the setting to do just that!
Apple's Beats 1 Internet radio is offering another feature familiar to traditional radio station listeners: call-in requests. Apple has phone numbers available in several countries, and Beats 1 DJ Travis Mills will host a requests show at 5PM pacific time.
If you have invested time and effort into crafting playlists on a service like Spotify or Rdio, you might be reluctant to try out Apple Music because those playlists won't be available. Kelly has a tip to help you import those playlists so your move to Apple Music is as smooth as possible.
Sick and tired of having your iOS devices tell you you're out of iCloud storage and can't backup? Disabling iCloud Photo Library can free up gigabytes of space, but it must be done with care so as to be sure you don't miss anything.
SSDs are fast becoming the norm, and space is not as plentiful there as on those spinning drives. Kelly has a few (free!) suggestions for how to get some of that space back.
We here at TMO are serious about backups, and we think you should be, too. Redundancy is one of your best protections against data loss! To help you make sure your backup scheme is bulletproof, this Quick Tip is all about clones, why you might need one, and how to set one up.
OS X Yosemite (and Mavericks), by default in a clean install, provide for each monitor, in a multiple monitor system, to have its own display Spaces. The immediate symptom is a rather confusing presentation of a full menu bar on each display, with the one that's inactive dimmed. John Martellaro explains the ins and outs of that setting, multiple displays and Spaces.
Have you found any issues with Apple Maps in your area? Maybe your local coffee shop is listed at the wrong address or certain search results are incorrect, for example? Well, in this Quick Tip, we're going to tell you how to report the problem to Apple (and why you should definitely take the time to do so!).
