We all know Apple products are much easier to use than their competitors products. Still, with desktop computers, notebook computers, iPods, iPads, iPhones, apps, iTunes, Apple TV and various flavors of Mac OS X and other software, most mortals can get stuck.

This thread is intended as a place where folks can post their questions and the friendly Apple user community can help them out. From simple questions to complex. It is also OK to ask general troubleshooting questions, post news or give tips about Apple products and their usage. Hopefully some experts will SubjectMark this thread and visit occasionally with their advice. Thanks in advance, experts.

For those needing help with PC and Windows products, please check out the excellent Computer Learning thread, moderated by goldworldnet.

When asking for help, please be sure to do a basic search with your favorite search engine first. If you still need help, please include pertinent details about the product(s) as necessary, such as brand, model number(s), things you've already tried, etc. This will greatly assist us in helping you. Thank you.

If you would like to give Apple feedback about their products (report bugs, usability issues, make suggestions, etc.), here is the place to do that:

If someone in the thread has helped you solve a problem, please consider recommending their post or commenting directly to them. This adds to the goodwill in Apple Product Help and gives people incentive to continue to help you and others.


The basic rule is that all participants must be polite to each other. Try to imagine that you are sitting in a living room with everyone else. Don't say anything you wouldn't say in that situation.

No name calling. Disagree with another person's words all you want, but don't insult the person.

Please use proper punctuation and capitalization in your posts, don't use "text speak." It is OK not to capitalize every letter in words for things like brand or model names, eg., "iphone" will be considered the same as "iPhone" here. Basically, please just show some respect for the English language in this forum. Thank you.

Due to SI policy, political comments are off limits here, unless there is an issue that specifically affects Apple. There are many threads on SI in which to discuss politics, this will not be one of them.

Under no circumstances is anyone to post information to circumvent copy protection of copyrighted materials. This includes commercial music files, software, serial numbers, or anything of the kind.

It's all about having a civil discussion. And hey, let's be careful out there.

You've now read the rules. If you want to know what happens if you violate them, see below.


Violators of the rules will usually receive a warning, and a second offense will probably result in a ban. In the case of especially egregious violations, a ban may come without warning.

When warranted, a ban may be imposed for being a general nuisance and/or generally disrupting civil discourse.
