WHY ISN’T IT WORKING?!?

How to reset the printing system on your Mac

AirPrint printing with Mac

If you’re having problems printing from your Mac, this hidden tool will likely solve your problem.

We’ve all run into a printing problem at one time or another. Sometimes a document gets stuck in the queue and won’t print, or your Mac can’t find your printer on your network.

Usually one of these steps will get things running smoothly again:

  • Make sure the printer is properly connected either directly to the Mac or to the same network the Mac is using
  • Update the printer driver software
  • Delete and re-add the printer using the Printers & Scanners preference pane
  • Restart the wifi router and/or printer

But occasionally, these simple fixes are not enough. That’s when you have to bring out the heavy-duty tools.

There’s a hidden command in macOS that will reset the Mac’s printing system. Using it will clear out your list of devices that can print, scan, or fax from the Printers & Scanners preference pane and also do a bunch of behind-the-scenes housekeeping, the details of which you don’t really need to worry about.

Because it should be used as a last resort, you won’t find the command to reset the printing system in any of the Mac’s standard menus, which makes it harder to invoke accidentally. But it’s simple to do if you know how.

How to reset the printing system on your Mac

  1. Click on the Apple menu icon
  2. Click on System Preferences.

    Click on the Apple icon, then click System Preferences

  3. Click Printers & Scanners.
  4. Right or control-click in the list of devices on the left side of the window.
  5. Click on Reset printing system….

    Click on Printers and Scanners, then right or control-click on your printer

  6. Click Reset when prompted to confirm that you want to reset your entire printing system.
  7. Enter the password for your administrative account if prompted.
  8. Click OK.

    When the reset process is complete, the list of printers and scanners will be empty. You’ll then want to re-add your printer.

  9. Click the add button (it looks like a plus symbol).

  10. If the list of options appears, click on your printer to automatically add it to your system.

    Click on the Add button, then select your printer from the options that appear

  11. If a window pops up instead, select your printer from the list of available options. 
  12. Click on Add.

    Click on your printer, then click on Add

The Mac will create your printer and add it to your list.

And now you have a fresh new printer, ready to expend countless dollars of ink on your behalf.

Any questions?

Do you have any printing problems that none of these steps can solve? Let us know in the comments and we’ll try to help you out.

Indstilling af dit Apple Watch support



https://support.apple.com/da-dk/HT204505


Indstilling af dit Apple Watch

Læs mere om, hvordan du indstiller dit Apple Watch med din iPhone.

Før du begynder

Hvis du vil bruge Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular), skal du have en iPhone 6 eller en nyere model med den nyeste version af iOS. (Hvis du vil bruge Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS) eller en tidligere model af Apple Watch, skal du have en iPhone 5s eller en nyere model med den nyeste version af iOS.)

Du skal også udføre disse trin:

  1. På iPhone: Gå til Indstillinger > Bluetooth, og kontroller, at Bluetooth er slået til.
  2. Kontroller, at din iPhone er sluttet til Wi-Fi eller et mobilnetværk.

Hvis du allerede har indstillet dit Apple Watch, men vil bruge det sammen med en anden iPhone, kan du overføre dit Apple Watch og dets indhold til din nye iPhone.  

 

Sådan tænder du dit Apple Watch

Du tænder dit Apple Watch ved at trykke på sideknappen og holde den inde, indtil Apple-logoet vises. Det kan tage et par minutter. 

Få hjælp, hvis dit Apple Watch ikke tænder, eller hvis du bliver bedt om at indtaste en adgangskode og har glemt den.

Sådan tager du dit Apple Watch på

Hold dit Apple Watch og din iPhone tæt på hinanden. Vent, til beskeden “Brug din iPhone for at indstille dette Apple Watch” vises på din iPhone, og tryk derefter på Fortsæt. Hvis du ikke ser beskeden, skal du åbne appen Apple Watch og derefter trykke på Start pardannelse.

Hold dit Apple Watch og din iPhone tæt på hinanden, indtil du har udført disse trin. 

Hold din iPhone over animationen

Anbring derefter urskiven midt i søgeren på din iPhone. Vent, til der vises en besked om, at dit Apple Watch er parret.

Hvis du ikke kan bruge kameraet, skal du trykke på Pardan Apple Watch manuelt og derefter følge de viste trin.

Indstil som nyt, eller gendan fra en sikkerhedskopi

Vælg derefter, hvilket håndled du vil have dit Apple Watch på. Læs Vilkår og betingelser, og tryk på Enig og derefter igen på Enig for at fortsætte.

 

Sådan logger du ind med dit Apple-id

Skriv adgangskoden til dit Apple-id, hvis du bliver bedt om det. Hvis du ikke bliver bedt om det, kan du logge ind senere fra appen Apple Watch: Tryk på Generelt > Apple-id, og log ind. Nogle funktioner, der kræver et mobiltelefonnummer, fungerer ikke på Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular), medmindre du logger ind på iCloud. 

Hvis Find min iPhone ikke er indstillet på din iPhone, bliver du også bedt om at slå Aktiveringslåstil. Hvis du får vist skærmen Aktiveringslås, er dit Apple Watch allerede knyttet til et Apple-id. Du skal indtaste e-mailadressen og adgangskoden for det pågældende Apple-id for at fortsætte indstillingen. Hvis dit Apple Watch har haft en tidligere ejer, er du muligvis nødt til at kontakte den tidligere ejer for at få fjernet aktiveringslåsen

 

Sådan vælger du dine indstillinger

Du kan indstille Lokalitetstjenester, Registrering af rute og Siri. Hvis Siri ikke allerede er indstillet på din iPhone, slås funktionen til, når du vælger denne indstilling.

Dit Apple Watch viser derefter, hvilke indstillinger der deles med din iPhone. Hvis du har slået Find min iPhone, Lokalitetstjenester, Wi-Fi-opkald og Diagnosticering til på din iPhone, slås disse indstillinger automatisk til på dit Apple Watch.

 

Sådan opretter du en kode

Du kan springe over oprettelse af en kode, men du skal bruge en til funktioner som f.eks. Apple Pay.

Tryk på Opret adgangskode eller Tilføj en lang adgangskode på din iPhone, og skift til dit Apple Watch for at indtaste den nye kode. Tryk på Tilføj ikke adgangskode, hvis du vil springe det over.

Du bliver også bedt om at indstille Apple Pay ved at tilføje et kort.

Sådan vælger du dine indstillinger

Vi vil gennemgå indstillingen af funktioner som f.eks. SOS og Aktivitet. På Apple Watch Series 3 (GPS + Cellular) kan du også indstille mobilforbindelse.

Derefter kan du installere de apps, der er kompatible med Apple Watch.

Vent på, at dine enheder synkroniserer

Synkroniseringen kan tage et stykke tid, afhængigt af hvor mange data du har. Mens du venter på, at dit ur synkroniserer, kan du prøve de grundlæggende funktioner i Apple Watch.

Hold enhederne tæt på hinanden, indtil du hører en lyd og mærker feedback fra dit Apple Watch. Tryk derefter på Digital Crown. 

Sådan kommer du godt i gang med at bruge dit Apple Watch

Læs om bevægelser, der styrer dit Apple Watch, og om de apps, du kan bruge. Du kan også læse Brugerhåndbog til Apple Watchtilpasse urskiven eller tilføje eller fjerne apps

Sådan får du hjælp

Find dit problem herunder, og læs, hvad du skal foretage dig. Hvis du stadig har brug for hjælp, skal du kontakte Apple-support.

Hvis dit Apple Watch ikke tænder

Du skal måske oplade dit Apple Watch

Hvis du bliver bedt om en kode

Dit Apple Watch er stadig parret med en anden iPhone. Hvis du ikke kan huske koden, skal du slette dit Apple Watch og derefter indstille det igen

Hvis du ser skærmen Aktiveringslås

Dit Apple Watch er knyttet til et Apple-id. Du skal indtaste e-mailadressen og adgangskoden for det pågældende Apple-id for at fortsætte indstillingen. Hvis dit Apple Watch har haft en tidligere ejer, er du muligvis nødt til at kontakte den tidligere ejer for at få fjernet aktiveringslåsen

Hvis dit Apple Watch afbryder forbindelsen til din iPhone

Du kan forbinde dine enheder igen.

Back up your Apple Watch – Apple Support


Back up your Apple Watch

Apple Watch content backs up automatically to your companion iPhone, so you can restore your Apple Watch from a backup. When you back up your iPhone to iCloud or iTunes, your iPhone backup will also include your Apple Watch data.

Here’s what your Apple Watch backup includes:

  • App-specific data (for built-in apps) and settings (for built-in and third-party apps). For example, Maps, distance, and units and your settings for Mail, Calendar, Stocks and weather. 
  • App layout on the Home screen
  • Clock face settings, including your current watch face, customizations, and order 
  • Dock settings, including the order and available apps 
  • General system settings, such as your watch face, brightness, sound, and haptic settings
  • Health and Fitness data, such as history, achievements, Workout and Activity calibration data from your Apple Watch, and user-entered data (To back up Health and Fitness data, you need to use iCloud or an encrypted iTunes backup.)
  • Notification settings
  • Playlists synced to your Apple Watch
  • Synced photo album (To see which album syncs, open the Apple Watch app, tap the My Watch tab, then tap Photos > Synced Album.) 
  • Time Zone

Your backup won’t include:

  • Bluetooth pairings
  • Credit or debit cards used for Apple Pay on your Apple Watch
  • Passcode for your Apple Watch

When you unpair your Apple Watch from your iPhone, your iPhone automatically creates a backup of your Apple Watch. Unpairing will erase all data from your Apple Watch. If your Apple Watch is unpaired while out of range of your iPhone, the backup might not have the latest data. When you’re ready, you can pair your Apple Watch again and set it up from a backup.

How to Reset & Erase Apple Watch to Factory Default Settings


How to Reset & Erase Apple Watch to Factory Default Settings

Reset an Apple Watch to factory defaultscdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/reset-apple-watch-300×280.jpg 300w” sizes=”(max-width: 476px) 100vw, 476px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block;” apple-inline=”yes” id=”54FAF103-88B8-4533-9E71-DCA5A83FC9D9″ src=”https://o1sen.dk/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/reset-apple-watch.jpeg”>

If you find yourself needing to reset an Apple Watch to factory default settings, perhaps to erase personal data from it, to start fresh, for troubleshooting purposes, lending to someone else, for resale, or whatever else, you’ll discover the entire procedure is performed on the Apple Watch itself. That makes it a bit different from some of the other settings on the device which requires setup from an accompanying paired iPhone, but don’t worry, this is not difficult.


Perhaps this should be obvious, but do be aware that by resetting an Apple Watch, you are completely erases everything off Apple Watch, including any media, data, settings, messages, pairing to iPhones, and anything else.

When you’re ready to begin the reset, get the Apple Watch you wish to erase, then do the following:

  1. Open the “Settings” app on the Apple Watch and go to “General”
  2. Scroll down and choose “Reset”
  3. Tap on “Erase All Content and Settings”
  4. Enter the passcode for the Apple Watch
  5. Scroll down and confirm you wish to reset the Apple Watch and erase all data from the device

Once you confirm the reset, a spinning wait indicator will appear on the screen for quite some time, eventually followed by an  Apple logo with an indicator around that.

The video below demonstrates the reset process on an Apple Watch:



When the Apple Watch has finished erasing all data on the device, the reset Watch will appear as if it was brand new, booting up and asking to be paired with an Apple Watch to complete the initial setup again. The Watch will reset to whatever the version of WatchOS is that it’s installed, it does not downgrade WatchOS or do anything else with the operating system itself.

Remember, this also removes any existing pairing between an Apple Watch and an iPhone, so that setup process has to start over again, even for a set of devices that were already synced to one another.

This process is pretty similar to performing a factory reset in iOS, and it basically restores the device back to its factory default settings as if it were brand new.

watchOS 4: How to customize and use the new Siri face on Apple Watch | 9to5Mac


watchOS 4: How to customize and use the new Siri face on Apple Watch

watchOS 4 introduces a new Siri watch face on Apple Watch that intelligently updates to show you relevant content throughout the day. The Siri watch face pulls data from 14 different sources by default, but customizing these sources can help remove information from the timeline that you don’t need and make the watch face more useful.


Sony A6500

The Siri watch face includes a digital clock with a flashing second indicator (but no option for seconds), two customizable complications including a new Siri complication, and two dynamic tiles of information. These tiles will update depending on time of day, date, current events, activity progress, and more.

Like other watch faces, swiping down from the top reveals Notification Center and swiping up from the bottom opens Control Center. Spin the Digital Crown on Siri face, however, and the timeline becomes a vertical carousel of information.

Rotating the Digital Crown downward shows Recent and All-Day tiles like temperature highs and lows and Now Playing cards. The tap minimizes to the top right corner with a light background indicating that it’s a button you can tap to return to the main view. You can also click the Digital Crown to leave the timeline and go back to the starting point.

Rotating the Digital Crown upward shows you tiles for Up Next and Tomorrow. Siri face previews the first Up Next tiles by default, and scrolling here reveals more. Rolling the Digital Crown lets you move around the timeline too.

9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-3.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=155 155w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-3.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=655 655w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-3.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=768 768w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-3.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=1024 1024w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-3.jpeg 1162w” sizes=”(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block; height: auto;”>

While these tiles change dynamically, Siri face features two complications that you set. My default, the new Siri complication is located in the top left (this is the only face with this complication) and the date is located above the digital clock.

Tapping the Siri complication invokes the voice assistant just like holding the Digital Crown or saying ‘Hey Siri’ when the display is on. It’s a visually satisfying complication, but you may get more use out of Siri face if you put something else here since you can invoke Siri with voice or a click.

9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-51.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=155 155w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-51.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=655 655w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-51.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=768 768w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-51.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=1024 1024w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-51.jpeg 1162w” sizes=”(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block; height: auto;”>

Press the Siri face firmly, then select Customize to choose between Activity, Alarm, Battery, Breathe, Calendar, Date, Find My Friends, Heart Rate, Home, Mail, Maps, Messages, Moon Phase, Music, News, Phone, Reminders, Remote, Siri, Stocks, Stopwatch, Sunrise/Sunset, Timer, Weather, Weather Conditions, Workout, World Clock, and third-party complications.

The top right complication is a bit smaller and can be set to Alarm, Battery, Calendar, Date, Heart Rate, News, Stocks, Stopwatch, Sunrise/Sunset, Timer, Weather, World Clock, and third-party complications.

9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-1.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=155 155w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-1.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=655 655w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-1.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=768 768w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-1.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=1024 1024w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-1.jpeg 1948w” sizes=”(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block; height: auto;”>

After you personalize the two complications, consider customizing which data sources Siri face uses. You can’t do this from the Apple Watch, however, so you’ll need your iPhone. Open the Watch app on your iPhone, look for the Siri face in the My Faces section (or add it from the Face Gallery tab at the bottom), then tap the Siri face to reveal customization options.

From here you can set both complications just like on the Apple Watch, and a Data Sources list lets you toggle apps that appear on Siri face on and off. watchOS 4.0 includes 14 data sources: Alarms, Breathe, Calendar, Home, News, Now Playing, Photos, Reminders, Stocks, Stopwatch, Timer, Wallet, Weather, and Workout.

You can’t use third-party apps as data sources (yet), but you can disable data sources that aren’t useful for you and declutter the Siri face timeline. For example, I toggle off Photos, News, and Stocks to avoid seeing poorly chosen snapshots, the latest Trump headline, and stock market changes on my Siri face.

This cleans up the experience for me and only surfaces useful tiles like HomeKit scene triggers, exercise recommendations, and upcoming Wallet passes.

My ‘Good morning’ scene is displayed when I wake up, and the ‘Good night’ scene is shown in the evening. Tapping these launches the Home app and shows the specific scene in the list, then tapping the scene activates it (which turns my lights off, locks the front door, etc.).

9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-4.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=155 155w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-4.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=655 655w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-4.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=768 768w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-4.jpeg?quality=82&strip=all&w=1024 1024w, 9to5mac.files.wordpress.com/2017/09/siri-watch-face-customize-4.jpeg 1162w” sizes=”(max-width: 1000px) 100vw, 1000px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block; height: auto;”>

Siri face is a great exercise coach, too, as it will recommend the exact amount of walking you should do to complete your Move goal at the end of the day. Siri face also shows the Now Playing card for music and podcasts played on the iPhone (or music on the watch), upcoming alarms and reminders appear in the timeline as well as calendar events, and Wallet passes are surfaced to the top when needed just like the lock screen on the iPhone.

You’ll also see currently active Timers appear dynamically, sunrise and sunset times, and Breathe app reminders.

I wish there was a version with analog watch hands (and second hands on the digital clock) and third-party apps as data sources would be appreciated. It also feels unnecessary to open Notification Center to view a missed alert when the Siri face timeline could optionally display alerts as well, but perhaps future updates will bring these changes.

Siri face is a neat way to change how your Apple Watch works and how you interact with apps without changing watchOS for everyone. I don’t use it 24/7, but I have kept it in my watch face lineup since I started testing it with watchOS 4 beta earlier this year.

Siri face is available on all Apple Watches running watchOS 4 or later.




How to dry & fix a wet or water-damaged iPhone (or iPad)


How to fix a wet or water-damaged iPhone (or iPad)

Dropped your iPhone in the toilet, swimming pool or sea? Quick! Read our emergency tips showing how to dry it out and fix any water damage.

External drying

External drying

First things first. Get the iPhone out of the water right away, if you haven’t already. And don’t even think about plugging it in.

If the waterlogged iPhone is plugged in already, unplug it (very carefully). Don’t be tempted to turn it on and check for damage, as this can cause short circuits.

If the wet iPhone is in a case, remove it; take the SIM card out too. (Removing the battery wouldn’t hurt either, but this is obviously only for confident DIY-type users who are willing to void the warranty.) These steps help to reduce the number of nooks and crannies where water can linger, and help to avoid damage to key iPhone components.

Wipe the excess and exterior liquid off everything you can reach. Turn the iPhone upside down and give it a gentle shake to clear the ports and sockets.

Power off

Power off

What you want to avoid is activating the circuits inside the iPhone, because this is likely to lead to short circuits – that’s what causes the long-term damage. If the iPhone happens to be switched off, leave it off.

Don’t be tempted to power it up and see if it still works. It might, and then promptly stop working forever precisely because you took a look.

A more likely scenario, sadly, is that your iPhone was switched on (or in sleep mode) when you dropped it in the drink.

So at this point you’re looking at two unappealing options: power down (but in the process causing the screen and operating system to wake up briefly before switching off) or leave the device in sleep mode in the hope that you don’t get any notifications.

It’s your decision, but after discussions here in the Macworld offices we’ve decided that the lesser of two evils is to wake the iPhone briefly in order to do a full power off – and that’s what we suggest in the video at the top of this article.

If you were lucky enough to be in Airplane Mode when you dropped the device, however, or are otherwise confident that nothing will happen to make your iPhone wake up in the next 48 hours, leaving it alone might be the better option.

How to AirDrop from Mac to iPhone or iPad


How to AirDrop from Mac to iPhone or iPad

AirDrop from Mac to iOScdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/airdrop-from-mac-to-ios-300×132.jpg 300w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/airdrop-from-mac-to-ios-768×338.jpg 768w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/airdrop-from-mac-to-ios-900×396.jpg 900w” sizes=”(max-width: 610px) 100vw, 610px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block; height: auto;”>

Did you know you can use AirDrop to send pictures, videos, and files from a Mac to an iPhone or iPad? AirDrop between the Mac and an iOS device is fast and works very well, and it’s quite easy to use for wireless transmission of images, documents, and other data between different devices.

This tutorial will detail how to AirDrop between a Mac and an iPhone or iPad. Of course you can go the other direction as well, as we have previously discussed using AirDrop from an iPhone to a Mac and also how to AirDrop between two Macs to transfer data wirelessly, so you may be interested in reviewing those articles too for a thorough understanding of how this great feature works.

Requirements for using AirDrop from a Mac to iOS device are as follows: all of the devices must be within close proximity to one another, they must support AirDrop (all somewhat modern hardware does), and for best results you’ll probably want to update the iOS versions and Mac OS versions to the latest available. Bluetooth and wi-fi must also be enabled on all involved Mac, iPhone, and iPad too, but when you turn on AirDrop those features are enabled as well.

How to AirDrop from Mac to an iOS Device

Using AirDrop to send data between a Mac and an iOS device is a two step process. First you must enable AirDrop on the device that will receive the files or images, in this case that would be an iPhone or iPad. Then, from the Mac, you choose the file(s) or data that you wish to send and access AirDrop to send it over to the receiving iOS device. We’ll split the receiving and sending parts into two different sections for clarity:

Part 1: How to Ready AirDrop to Receive on iPhone or iPad

First, start with the iPhone or iPad that wishes to receive data over AirDrop.

  1. On the iOS device, swipe up from the bottom of the screen to access Control Center then tap on the AirDrop icon (it looks like a set of concentric circles with the slice cut out of the bottom)
  2. Enable AirDrop

  3. Choose to accept AirDrop Receiving from either “Contacts Only” or “Everyone” depending on who/what Mac you plan to receive AirDrop data from
  4. Enabling AirDrop in iOS

  5. AirDrop icon will turn blue highlighted to indicate the feature is enabled in iOS
  6. AirDrop enabled in iOScdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/airdrop-enabled-ios-blue-icon-300×200.jpg 300w” sizes=”(max-width: 486px) 100vw, 486px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block;” apple-inline=”yes” id=”471AA00E-1DB4-47DA-9B1A-1AAA728502CA” src=”https://o1sen.dk/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/airdrop-enabled-ios-blue-icon.jpg”>

Part 2: How to Send AirDrop Files from Mac to iPhone or iPad

Next, go to the Mac which has the data to send via AirDrop to the target receiving iPad or iPhone.

  1. Go to the Finder in Mac OS and choose “AirDrop” from the sidebar, in a moment the receiving iPhone or iPad will show up in the AirDrop list on the Mac
  2. Access AirDrop on Maccdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/access-airdrop-mac-to-see-ipad-iphone-300×200.jpg 300w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/access-airdrop-mac-to-see-ipad-iphone-768×512.jpg 768w, cdn.osxdaily.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/access-airdrop-mac-to-see-ipad-iphone-900×600.jpg 900w” sizes=”(max-width: 600px) 100vw, 600px” class=”” style=”max-width: 100%; margin: 0.5em auto; display: block; height: auto;”>

  3. In a new Finder window, locate the files on the Mac you wish to send over AirDrop
  4. Now drag and drop the file(s) you wish to send from the Mac to the receiving iPhone or iPad as seen in the AirDrop window
  5. Drag and drop files in AirDrop to the iOS device to send AirDrop

Part 3: Receiving and Accessing AirDropped Data in iOS

Back to the iPhone or iPad receiving the AirDropped data, you will find one of a few things happen regarding where the AirDropped files go:

  • If the AirDropped data is a picture, image, video, or movie, it will appear in the Photos app in the Camera Roll, as you can see here with an amazing Windows 95 photo
  • AirDrop picture in iOS Photos app

  • If the AirDropped data is a different file type like a PDF, text document, archive, word doc, pages file, or similar, a pop-up will appear asking what you wish to open the AirDrop data with, or alternatively you can choose “Save to iCloud Drive” to store the AirDropped data in iCloud Drive
  • Receiving AirDrop files from Mac to iPad and iPhone as files

That’s it! As you can see AirDrop is super easy to use and very convenient, it’s one of the easiest ways to get data from Mac to Mac, from a Mac to an iPhone or iPad as described here, as well as AirDropping from iPhone to Mac too.

Once you’re finished using AirDrop, remember to turn off AirDrop again so that you aren’t leaving your AirDrop receiving open to anyone else, and also to prevent any unnecessary battery drain.

* Generally speaking, using AirDrop with “Contacts Only” is safer and recommended, but you must have the sender in your contacts list of the iOS device in order for them to see your AirDrop signal. Using ‘Everyone’ can be more compatible and a bit easier, but note that literally anyone can send you AirDrop data at that point if you leave that enabled, thus it’s best to turn off AirDrop after you are finished using it.

If you’re having any difficulty getting this working, remember to update iOS and Mac OS to new versions, enable BlueTooth and Wi-Fi, and be sure the devices are close together. Beyond that you can follow some AirDrop troubleshooting tips for iPhone and iPad, use AirDrop compatibility mode on the Mac, and be sure AirDrop is enabled in iOS so that it shows up.

Gmail er Googles velkendte webbaserede emailservice, der kan tilgås fra enhver browser hvor som helst. Du kan dog også benytte Gmail direkte i eksempelvis iPhonens Mail-app, så du ikke behøver læse dine mails i Safari.

Hvis du sørger for at sætte det rigtigt op, vil din indboks endda altid være synkroniseret mellem din iPhone, iPad og Gmail. Med synkroniseret menes der, at hvis du eksempelvis markerer en mail som “læst” i Mail på iPhonen, vil den også blive markeret som læst i Mail på iPaden eller i webinterfacet til Gmail. For at kunne dette, skal du benytte den såkaldte IMAP-protokol med Gmail.

Det er meget nemt at sætte op.

Sådan opsætter du Gmail med IMAP på iPhone og iPad

1. Log ind på din Gmail-konto i din browser.

2. Åbn Indstillinger og tryk på fanebladet “Videresendelse og POP/IMAP”.

3. Marker “Aktivér IMAP” og gem ændringerne.

4. Nu skal du finde din iPhone eller iPad frem. Her Åbner du Indstillinger > Mail > Konti > Tilføj konto.

5. Vælg Google som konto.

6. Følg vejledningen på skærmen. Udfyld dine kontooplysninger fra Google, det vil sige mailadresse og kodeord.

Det var det hele. Nu er Googles Gmail sat op med IMAP-funktionalitet på din iPhone eller iPad.

Hvis du opsætter mail på din iPhonen manuelt er det disse informationer du skal bruge:

Server til indgående post (IMAP)
imap.gmail.com
Kræver SSL: Ja
Port: 993

Server til udgående post (SMTP)
smtp.gmail.com
Kræver SSL: Ja
Kræver TLS: Ja (hvis det er tilgængeligt)
Kræver godkendelse: Ja
Port til SSL: 465
Port til TLS/STARTTLS: 587
