The Least You Should Know About iPad, iPhone and MAC Computer Repair

While longevity with a MAC or any Apple product exceeds most PC’s or other manufacturers, there’s still times that repairs are necessary. For instance, if your child decides to give your iPhone or iPad a bath in the toilet, you may need either some serious repair or to replace the device altogether. Apparently standing in a long line at the Apple store in either Boca Raton or Fort Lauderdale malls, may not seem the most practical use of time. In this week’s blog we highlight the least, you should know about getting anyone of your Apple devices up and running.

First, don’t bother taking an iPhone or iPad to a kiosk or some place that isn’t certified. Out of anything we tell you in this article, this is the single most important. Why? Because, if you take it to someone who isn’t qualified to work on these electronics, your device could end up costing more as it may void any warranties from the manufacturer. Our technicians have been trained specifically to work on nothing but Apple and Macintosh’s products giving Coastal Computers the leading edge over any 3rd party repair store.

Next, be sure to do a proper assessment on the device before bringing it into any service center or store. In fact, a remedy center should offer a diagnostic and do a thorough evaluation of the broken device. Often, people neglect to update their software or backing up data which can cost you memory, ram, and other issues. Find a location where the people are both knowledgeable and who will do a proper evaluation before blurting out what upgrades and other things are involved in fixing your computer.

In addition to evaluating your device, be sure to look for repair people who will warranty their work. It’s too easy for someone to tell you the device is fixed only to find three weeks later the problem still exists. When dealing with any service company, they should back their work with some warranty. Seeking certified technicians who stand by their craftsmanship is not only going to give you peace of mind, it’s just plain smart!

We hope that by using these three tips, you’ll have the ability to make a conscious decision finding the right place with the right people to guarantee your MAC or Apple products run with ease.

Your Macbook Just Ran Out of Space, Now what?

All computers no matter how fast or how much memory they’ve been built with will eventually run out of space. While this may not seem like anything new for some of you, it may be to people who use their Macbook and iMacs for things like graphic design or video editing. Because these projects tend to take up a lot of space and clog up your drive, it’s always good to back up to the cloud, but let’s say you’ve already reached that capacity and aren’t quite sure what to do at this point. Here are a few tips for you to give a bit of credence to that just might help.

Never let your computer whether you’re on iOS or Mac OSX, get down past 15% of space. If you do, you could find your computer start to run slower and eventually could crash. Look for files that use less than ten gigabytes of disk space and back these up with an external hard drive. Photos can take up a ton of additional space on the hard drive, so be sure to delete the ones you just aren’t interested in keeping. On top of photos you might not want, look for duplicates. Again, these little nuances will certainly help free space.

In addition to files that are running less than 10 Gigs, check to see if any apps are running and either close or delete them. Often when visiting certain websites, cookies and other nasty bits are left on you even after you’ve bounced out. In some cases, these apps can download themselves and need to be removed for good. Another aspect to consider is these apps can always be running and wearing on your disk space.

Another item that is eating up your space could be your iTunes app. Be sure to use a NAS box rather than an external hard drive to download your music, this way you’ll have access anytime. In case you’re unsure of what a NAS is that stands for Network-Attached-Storage or a server that is connected to your computer network. Xfinity or Comcast offers packages such as NAS, Jax, and FL. While this is an excellent alternative, it may not be cost-efficient for you.

If the price is too expensive for a NAS system, then download OmniDiskSweeper to show you exactly what apps are running and eliminate the ones, not in use. Another short cut follows these instructions from MacWorld.Co.Uk:

You can also do it easily without an app. Open a new Finder window and navigate to your Home folder or press Shift-Cmd-H from the Finder. Press Cmd-F to open a new Find window and in the left-hand drop-down menu at the top of the window, choose Other. From the window that opens next, scroll down until you see File Size, and check the box next to it. You have now selected that as the attribute for a search. Select ‘greater than’ in the next drop-down menu, and change the file size units to MB. Now type in a file size, say 100, to display all the files in your Home folder that are bigger than 100MB. You can now choose which files to delete or archive on an external disk, and free up disk space quickly.

With these quick methods, you may find it’s easier to free space than you might have thought. If all else fails ‘Go Coastal’ and call us directly.
