How to download your entire music library to your iPhone or iPad

By Sébastien Page on Oct 27, 2016

I’ve cut the cord between my iPhone and iTunes a long time ago, and the rise of Apple Music has given me one less reason to plug my iPhone and sync it up with iTunes. After all, it offers virtually all the music in the world at your fingertips.

But what happens if you want to download your entire existing music collection for offline listening? In that case, well, you’re still going to have to rely on the good old cable to sync up with iTunes because Apple Music doesn’t offer an option to download everything at once.

In this tutorial, we will show you a trick that will allow you to download all your songs to your iPhone or iPad using Apple Music and iCloud Music Library. Read More

 

The perfect jailbroken iPhone: iOS 9 edition

By Anthony Bouchard on Sep 28, 2016

Following a ritualistic bloodline of popular posts we’ve shared in the past, we’ll be showing you what jailbreak tweaks we think make a perfect jailbroken iPhone on iOS 9.

Personally, I believe less is more; keeping a jailbroken device as stock as possible without compromising on your most wanted features helps keep it both stable and functional. Overloading it with jailbreak tweaks for the sake of aesthetics can lead to instability, and that’s something I tend to avoid.

As a result, I focus mainly on tweaks that serve a functional purpose more so than tweaks intended to make your device look cooler. These tweaks will all work with the Pangu jailbreak for iOS 9.3.3. Read More

By Cody Lee on May 11, 2016

Apple is preparing to completely terminate music downloads in the iTunes Store, reports Digital Music News. Citing sources familiar with the matter, the outlet says an aggressive, two-year timetable to switch completely to streaming music is gaining traction within the company.

Hedging on its claim, the site also says other shutdown plans are being considered, including one that would see the iPhone-maker offer music downloads for another 3-4 years. Regardless, executives have agreed that keeping downloads running forever is no longer on the table. Read More

 

Slow App Store downloads? Try this

By Anthony Bouchard on May 2, 2016

The App Store is a place where you can find useful apps for your Mac or iOS devices all in one place. You simply search for something you want to download, and with the tap of a button you can empower your device with more capabilities.

Despite how great it is, intermittent internet issues can plague users with slower app downloads than expected, and this means more time spent staring at a progress bar as you anticipate the download to finish.

In this piece, we’ll talk about various reasons why your App Store downloads may not be performing the way you want them to, and some troubleshooting steps to fix the potential problem. Read More

 

How to download files and documents to iPhone or iPad

By Sébastien Page on Apr 14, 2016

Downloading and saving files or documents to a computer is something we don’t think about. Click, click, done. It’s saved on the hard drive and ready to be accessed when needed. On iOS though, it’s a little more complicated than that. The lack of a user file system can be confusing, and something as simple as downloading a file can all the sudden become a daunting task.

How do I download a file to my iPhone? Where do I download it to? These are questions I’ve recently been asked, but also problems I have faced myself. In this post, I’ll try to share different options for downloading files to an iPhone or iPad. Read More

 

How to remove a software update download from your device

By Sébastien Page on Oct 27, 2015

I am not sure if I accidentally initiated the download or if it happened on its own, but I have the latest iOS over-the-air update stored on my device. If the storage space used isn’t anything to worry about, what bothers me the most is that my iPhone now prompts me every morning to install that update, something I do not want to do, or be reminded of at this time.

Deleting an over-the-air update downloaded to your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is an easy thing to do. If you want to regain a few MB of storage, or if like me you don’t want to be asked to install that update every day, follow these simple directions. Read More

iOS 7 makes it difficult to gauge where you are with App Store downloads. With very large downloads, it’s a frustrating experience to watch the progress circle slowly inch around at a snail’s pace.

How to extract OS X download history via Terminal

By Jeff Benjamin on Jan 14, 2013

Have you ever wanted to go back and check your Mac’s entire download history in one fell swoop? With this handy Terminal command your download history is only a few steps away.

One of our readers tipped this to me via Twitter. It’s essentially an SQL command that you run via Terminal. It goes into the database and extracts the full contents of your download history logs as found in the LSQuarantineEvent. It doesn’t matter where, or how you downloaded these files, in most cases the download should be logged.

One exception that I’ve noted is with Mac App Store apps. Items downloaded from the Mac App Store are not logged here. Take a look at our video inside for a glance into how it works… Read More
