iOS 8 iconLearn how to remove a contact from a group on iPhone and iPad running on iOS 8, iOS 9 and iOS 10 without completely deleting the contact. The iOS 8 (also iOS 9 and iOS 10) contacts app does not really have the direct feature to just remove a contact from a specific group. Hence, removing a contact from a group on iPhone and iPad must be done in other ways. Either you do a more or less uncomfortable work-around in the native contacts app on iOS 8 / iOS 9 / iOS 10 / iOS 11, or you are using third-party apps like ‘Simpler Contacts – Pro‘ for this. For iCloud contacts only, you can remove an iCloud contact from a single group on iCloud.com (Mac and Windows PC). The contacts are then synced with your iPhone or iPad via iCloud.

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite icon

Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite iconA frozen or black screen after sleep on Mac OS X 10.10.2 (beta 1, beta 2, beta 3) is often caused by a incompatible third-party display driver and is easily fixed by removing that display driver or delete completely the third-party app, e.g. via using CleanMyMac 2 for completely uninstalling the app. In my case, the culprit was AirParrot 2, an app for screen mirroring to an Apple TV or Chromecast and for desktop extension to a Mac or Windows PC.

WhatsApp icon

Update: How To Set Up WhatsApp Web On iPad And Mac
WhatsApp iconWhatsApp on iPad without jailbreak was working on iOS 7 and iOS 8 up to version 2.11.8. But now, WhatsApp 2.11.8 apparently expired, meaning the app certificate is not valid anymore. Hence, you cannot install WhatsApp 2.11.8 on your iPad or your iPod touch. Furthermore, WhatsApp versions higher than 2.11.8 have never worked on iOS 8. The reason for this is seemingly a checkup folder created while installing WhatsApp on the iPhone which cannot be copied onto the iPad due to root limitations of a non-jailbreaked iPad.

Mac OS X 10.10.2 Yosemite beta 2 is still not working perfectly! My MacBook Pro 13” End 2013 still crashes after stand-by mode. However, Google’s Chrome browser crashes seems to be resolved. It appears that the stand-by issue is also related to the trackpad.
