Since today, I have been blogging for six years and this is my 380th post on miapple.me -Tech.Blog! I published my first blog post “My First Apple Anniversary on January 21st, 2012!” on miapple.me on January 21st, 2012. Exactly seven years after I got addicted to the Apple world (my first Apple product was an iPhone 4), I can look back to a very exciting year 2017. After the increasing 1st year, 2nd year, 3rd year and 4th year, the 5th year and 6th year of miapple.me were two years of consolidation. 😉 Less posts, more content. I will give you a summary about the last year in the following.
AirPods connect automatically to Apple TV (4th or 5th generation) running on tvOS 11 if you’re signed in to your iCloud account. When you have already paired your AirPods to your iPhone, especially your iPhone X, before, the wireless earbuds are automatically connected and paired to your iPad / iPad Pro, Mac / MacBook, Apple Watch or Apple TV with the same iCloud account by automatic setup.
iPhone X shipping times are displayed at 3 to 4 weeks on the Apple Store (U.S.). Indeed, the real and confirmed shipping date is far later. On November 12, 2017, Putting a iPhone X, silver, 256 GB into the bag at the Apple store shows shipping forecast at 3 to 4 weeks. If you proceed the buying process, the shipping g is dated December 13 to December 20, 2017. This means a shipping in more than 4 to 5 weeks.
If ‘Device not found’ appears in the Airport Utility app on your Mac, it means that your AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express or Time Capsule is not showing up in the AirPort Utility app and hence, not accessible. Nevertheless, your AirPort or Time Capsule device is still working and reachable via Finder app. The Fix ‘Device not found’ in AirPort Utility for AirPort Extreme, AirPort Express and Time Capsule is done by unplugging the AirPort device and then deleting Apple ID in Back to my Mac.
Deleted Time Machine Backups in the trash cannot be emptied because of System Integrity Protection (SIP), introduced in Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan. If a Time Machine backup fails or gets interrupted then incomplete backups can result. The Time Machine will be unable to successfully complete a backup until this corrupted file is deleted. However, if you try to empty the trash, such backup files get stuck on ‘Preparing to empty the Trash…’. Deactivating System Integrity Protection enables emptying the trash in macOS 10.13 High Sierra, macOS 10.12 Sierra and Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan.
macOS Photos app cannot import selected folders of images to albums sustaining the original album’s name. macOS Photos app is only capable to make bulk import of images. Further more, macOS Photos app can even not import nested folders and convert them to nested albums in the Photos app. However, nested folders images are easily imported to nested albums in the Photos app using an app based on an applescript conserving the folders’ original names and nested structure. The app is working on macOS High Sierra 10.13, macOS Sierra 10.12, Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11 and Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.
macOS Photos app cannot export selected albums to folders sustaining the original album’s name. Further more, macOS Photos app can even not export nested albums. However, nested Photos app albums are easily exported to folders using an app based on an applescript conserving the albums’ original names. The app is working on macOS High Sierra 10.13, macOS Sierra 10.12, Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11 and Mac OS X Yosemite 10.10.
tvOS 11 beta can be installed over the air (“OTA”) without using a USB-C cable connected to a PC or Mac. Just download the tvOS configuration profile, install it on a Apple TV 4, restart and then update the Apple TV software. The installed configuration profile directly enables your Apple TV 4 to receive OTA updates. The new features of tvOS 11 are the new TV App with Watch Now section which is also on iPhone and iPad, Directv Now and much more.
Outlook for Mac (2016) now supports of Google Calendars and Contacts. In contrast, still neither iCloud calendars and iCloud contacts, nor CalDAV and CardDAV are supported on Outlook for Mac. Starting with the preview of Outlook 2016 for Mac, version 15.34 (build number 1704419), Outlook for Mac adds improved support for Google Accounts. Furthermore, the setup of a Google Account, both Gmail or G Suite for business, is improved. In addition, Outlook for Mac 2016, 15.34 (build number 1704419) is now working seamlessly with Google’s 2-step-verification. The predecessor version 15.33 was not compatible to Google’s 2-step-verification.
