Sports fans will be pleased to know that Apple has released an Apple Sports app for iPhone, which offers real-time score information, live stats, and betting odds.
Apple Sports intends to be fast, direct, and features a simple user interface that is not overengineered. Given some of the other sports apps out there with very busy interfaces and sluggish performance, Apple Sports could be a welcome addition to many iPhone users home screens. And if you were wondering, the app is not available for iPad or Mac, yet anyway, Apple Sports is iPhone exclusive.
Apple has issued Release Candidate builds for iOS 17.4 and iPadOS 17.4, along with beta 5 of macOS Sonoma 14.4 and tvOS 17.4. Separately, a new beta of VisionOS 1.1 is available for Apple Vision Pro beta testers.
Beta updates and RC builds are available to any users who are actively participating in the Apple beta system software programs.
iPad may display a warning message on the screen if it gets too hot, becoming unusable until the iPad cools down again. This happens if the iPad is overheating, and there are various reasons this can happen.
The specific message on screen is “Temperature – iPad needs to cool down before you can use it.” And this is accompanied by a red thermometer icon in the middle of an otherwise darkened screen. You may have seen this on iPhone too, but obviously we’re focused on the iPad overheating here.
We’re going to review some of the most common reasons an iPad may overheat, and what measures you can take to potentially resolve the problem.
Rarely, a Mac can experience a memory leak which causes MacOS to run out of memory. When this happens, it’s fairly obvious because not only does the Mac become unresponsive, but you see an error message on the screen that says “Your system has run out of application memory. To avoid problems with your computer, quit any applications you are not using.”
This error message is presented inside of a Force Quit window, where you can see what apps are open and using the most amount of memory.
Let’s discuss what causes the Mac to run out of application memory and present this particular error message, and how to fix it.
Modern versions of MacOS no longer support HFS, meaning that new Macs can no longer read, mount, or write to classic HFS drives. But a fair amount of longtime Mac users continue to have older Macs and old Mac hard drives that are in HFS format, way back from the days of Mac OS 8, Mac OS 9, and early Mac OS X, and thus may wish to mount, read, and copy files from those old classic HFS volumes, to their modern Mac.
While you should get in the habit of frequently saving your documents as you work in them, including in Microsoft Word, things don’t always go as planned. Many modern Mac apps will automatically save progress as you work in them, and Microsoft Word is one of them. Thanks to a feature called AutoRecovery, which saves a recovery file of your data every 10 minutes in the background as you work, you may be able to recover files and documents from Word in the event that Word crashes or even the entire Mac crashes.
This tutorial is going to show you how to use the AutoRecovery feature of Microsoft Word on a Mac, and, if that fails, a way to manually access auto recovery files from Microsoft Word in the MacOS file system using a hidden directory. These tricks should help you to recover unsaved Word documents from your Mac.
Some Mac users may occasionally stumble into a oddly worded error message when attempting to launch an application that states “Not authorized to send Apple events to System Events”, and, when clicking OK to dismiss the error, nothing happens – the app does not launch on MacOS. If you attempt to open the app triggering this error message again, you will see the error message again, but again the Mac app will not launch.
The full text of this Mac error message is usually “Not authorized to send Apple events to System Events. Not authorized to send Apple events to System Events. (-1743)” Repeating itself twice in the same error message, to add to the confusion.
What is this “not authorized to send Apple events to system events” error message on the Mac, and how do you fix it? That’s exactly what we’ll show you here.
Microsoft Edge is a great web browser alternative that is available for MacOS, iPhone, iPad, and obviously Windows, and Android too. Not only is it fast and offers free access to ChatGPT 4, but if you regularly use different computing platforms, you’ll appreciate that you can sync your browser data across all of your devices, whether it’s another Mac, Windows PC, iPhone, Android, or iPad.
If you’re a fan of Microsoft Edge for Mac, you may want to make it your default web browser. While you can change your default web browser through System Settings, Microsoft Edge offers a more direct way to become your new default browser when you click links from anywhere else on the Mac.
The very nature of how content blockers work can cause interference with certain webpages, and it’s not unusual for content blockers to completely break a website or webpage from functioning. Problems with content blockers are particularly common with finance and banking sites, wi-fi captive portals, and video sharing sites, so you may find yourself wanting to disable content blockers for a specific site as you browse the web in Safari on your Mac.
If you’re looking to keep track of your net worth easily, you don’t need to download an app or sign up for a new service. If you’re an iPhone, Mac, or iPad owner, you’ll be happy to know that Apple conveniently offers a really great spreadsheet for tracking your net worth, and it’s free, bundled within the Numbers app on iPhone, Mac, and iPad.
Many services exist to keep track of net worth, but some of those apps and services are being killed off (like the popular Mint service), or require subscription fees. But there’s no need to get frustrated with those online experiences, or to pay for a subscription fee, or to even buy a net worth tracking spreadsheet, because Apple provides a great template for tracking your net worth for free, available on every iPhone, iPad, and Mac, and technically even for PC and Android users thanks to Numbers for iCloud.
Apple has issued the fourth beta versions of iOS 17.4, iPadOS 17.4, macOS Sonoma 14.4, watchOS 14.4, and tvOS 17.4. Additionally a new beta of visionOS 1.1 is available for the developers who are working with Apple Vision Pro.
These beta updates are available to all users who are enrolled in the beta testing programs for Apple system software.
It’s a reasonable question to wonder where screenshots are stored on the Mac, particularly if you’re a Mac user that is taking screenshots who then needs to interact with those screen captures for whatever reason. Maybe you want to send a screenshot file to someone, or maybe you want to work with a particular screenshot in an image editor or other application.
Screenshots are very easy to find on the Mac, and, if you wish, you can even change the location where they are saved to.
Messages for iPhone, Mac, and iPad all contain a really handy feature that autofills security codes that are sent to you via text message. You know the type, as these text message verification codes are often required for signing into financial institutions or many other things that use it as a method of identity and device verification, and for two-factor authentication.
Autofill for security codes works really well, and the feature is basically identical on Mac, iPhone, and iPad, so if you learn how this works on one, you’ll know how it works on all the major Apple platforms.
macOS Sonoma arrived with 134 new stunning wallpapers available that you can use to spruce up your Mac desktop background. The giant collection of new wallpapers are themed, with wallpaper options for landscapes, cityscapes, underwater, and Earth from space. Even better, these are not just static, they’re all animated wallpapers, meaning they will briefly move and animate when you unlock your Mac, wake from screen saver, or login on boot.
If you’re new to Sonoma or macOS in general, you may not be familiar with how to access and use the hundred plus wallpapers, so we’re going to show you how this works so that you can beautify your Mac desktop quickly with minimal effort.

Many networks will block YouTube for any number of reasons; maybe you’re in a region or country where YouTube is not allowed, maybe you’re at a school or institution where YouTube is blocked, maybe censorship is blocking YouTube content, maybe your current network blocks YouTube, or maybe a particular YouTube video is region restricted.

We’re going to cover three simple ways to unblock YouTube and watch blocked YouTube content, and these methods should work from just about any device, whether you’re on iPhone, iPad, Mac, Windows PC, Android, Linux, Chromebook, etc. Broadly speaking, these tricks should work regardless of where you are located and what your network is doing, though some firewalls and networks are trickier than others at blocking sites like YouTube.
