For folks who don't want to subscribe, or rely, on Apple Music, there's another option called iTunes Match that allows them to upload their own music. It's a handy way to keep track of your music, digitally, especially if you're sourcing it from physical media like CDs. But it turns out many users are experiencing some issues with the service.
In a somewhat predictable fashion, Apple closed the short-lived signing window for iOS & iPadOS 14.7 on Monday, almost one full week after unleashing iOS & iPadOS 14.7.1 upon the general public with important bug fixes and security patches for its mobile devices.
Many people seem to be hit with what seems to be a new Apple TV software bug across platforms, with some folks complaining about no audio in purchased movies.
Following a lengthy beta testing period involving developers and volunteer participants, Apple officially released iOS & iPadOS 14.7 to the public last week with a long list of new features and improvements for iPhones and iPads alike. But no software update from Apple comes without the bitter aftertaste.
Just as Apple always does after releasing a major software update, the company closed the signing window for iOS & iPadOS 14.6, which makes it substantially more difficult for iPhone and iPad users to downgrade to the older firmware version if they’ve already updated the device(s) to iOS or iPadOS 14.7, or perhaps the newer yet iOS or iPadOS 14.7.1.
It has been almost one year since Apple launched a brand new, universal gift card for "everything Apple." At the time of launch, though, the gift card option was only available in the United States. But, today, just a few weeks short of its anniversary, availability has broadened.
Are you trying to delete photos on your iPhone but just aren't able to? We've heard several complaints about an issue where the Trash icon in the Photos app is greyed out and doesn't let you delete photos/videos. If you're facing this issue, then worry not, there's a simple solution to it.
Apple released iOS & iPadOS 14.6 to the public in May with some improvements for the company’s mobile operating systems, and as we know with most of Apple’s mobile software updates, they typically come closely trailed by the un-signing of the previous version.
That’s the case this evening, as it appears that Apple has officially stopped signing iOS & iPadOS 14.5.1. With this move, iPhone and iPad owners will no longer be able to easily downgrade from the newer iOS & iPadOS 14.6 using traditional methods.
In a typical Apple fashion, the Cupertino-based iPhone and iPad manufacturer has stopped signing both iOS & iPadOS 14.5 after the newer iOS & iPadOS 14.5.1 firmware has been available to the general public for one week.
Apple’s decision to stop signing iOS & iPadOS 14.5 means that those who’ve upgraded to iOS or iPadOS 14.5.1 can no longer easily downgrade to the previous firmware. Likewise, those using even older versions of iOS or iPadOS will be compelled to upgrade to version 14.5.1 instead of being able to manually install 14.5 via Finder or iTunes.
After officially launching the highly anticipated iOS & iPadOS 14.5 update a week ago with support for Face ID authentication while wearing a mask and 5G connectivity whilst utilizing dual SIM mode among other things, it should come as no surprise to anyone that nearly one week later the Cupertino-based company is pulling the plug on the previous iOS & iPadOS version — 14.4.2.
Apple’s decision to stop signing iOS & iPadOS 14.4.2 means that iPhone and iPad users will be unable to downgrade to this particular version of Apple’s mobile operating systems under most circumstances, with the lone exception being that users have their .shsh2 blobs saved from a time when that firmware was being signed.
With so much of the content we watch being from digital platforms, it can be sometimes easy to forget that that content might not always be available to us. And not just because we don't have it installed or because we don't have an internet connection. But rights holders and regional rules might block content -- even after we buy it, making it impossible to watch.
Among its barrage of other announcements today, Apple has revealed its plans for a new podcast subscription service. The name of it is—you guessed it—Apple Podcasts Subscriptions, and the company says it will be a 'global marketplace for listeners to discover premium subscriptions offered by their favorite creators.'
Apple released iOS & iPadOS 14.4.1 last Monday alongside similar updates for macOS and watchOS with security vulnerability patches. But as many already know with Apple’s rather frequent software updates, it’s never long after a release before the company stops signing the previous version of its mobile operating system(s).
Such is the case with iOS & iPadOS 14.4, which Apple stopped officially signing just this evening. This move on the Cupertino-based tech giant’s part means that iPhone, iPad, and even iPod touch users will no longer be able to downgrade their firmware from iOS or iPadOS 14.4.1 to the older iOS or iPadOS 14.4 release.
