How to Input Location with GPS Coordinates on iPhone Maps

Apr 13, 2017 - 2 Comments


Do you have GPS coordinates for a location that you’d like to enter on the iPhone? You can input and search maps by GPS coordinates on the iPhone easily by using the Apple Maps or Google Maps applications, as we’ll demonstrate in this walkthrough.

You will be able to input, search for, find, locate, and show on a map any location as defined by GPS coordinates, which are traditionally in a latitude and longitude, DMS, or the DD decimal degrees format, though you can also use other geolocation formats too. While we’re focusing on finding locations by GPS coordinates with iPhone, this trick works the same to enter geolocation data on the same mapping apps on iPad and iPod touch as well.

How to Check iOS App Compatibility to List Older 32-Bit Apps

Apr 12, 2017 - 17 Comments

Check iOS app compatibility list

It is assumed that Apple will stop allowing older 32-bit applications to run on future iOS system software releases. Essentially this means that it’s possible some older apps will stop working on an iPhone or iPad after the device has updated to some system software release, unless the developer updates those apps to include modernized 64-bit support.

While this is all fairly technical and far beyond what the average iPhone or iPad user should worry about, it could potentially impact some users who rely on older apps, or apps which are no longer updated by developers. Thus, if you are curious if any of this may impact you or the apps you rely on for iOS, you can now check which apps are compatible and which may not be in the future.

Fix Repeated “Your message could not be sent” Messages Error on Mac

Apr 7, 2017 - 11 Comments

Your message could not be sent error on Mac Messages

Mac users may encounter a pop-up error originating from the Messages app in Mac OS which informs them “your message could not be sent”. Often when this error dialog appears, it’s seemingly out of nowhere or when a Mac wakes from sleep or has rebooted.

While it’s possible to encounter the “your message could not be sent” error for legitimate sending failures, or because iCloud or iMessage is down (very rare), it’s also possible the error can appear due to a syncing issue in which case there is nothing to adjust, and the solution in that case is a bit goofy.

How to Turn Off & Close Dashboard in Mac OS

Apr 4, 2017 - 13 Comments

Dashboard on Mac

The Mac Dashboard is an under appreciated feature in Mac OS that offers a screen of little widgets for displaying things like the weather, dictionary, stocks, currency conversion, ski conditions, world clocks, and more. The Dashboard feature is kind of like what the latest iOS widget lock screen offers, but on the Mac. For whatever reason, Dashboard has been deemphasized in more recent versions of mac OS though, and if you find yourself not using Dashboard or accidentally entering into Dashboard, you can close the feature and turn it off.
