One of the many infrastructures that this administration has done nothing to prevent, unsafe drinking water from outdated city water pipes in a rich country is unacceptable, bridges in need of repair and so much more. I updated my Mac mini and thought I lost my photos but thankfully I didn’t. I set an appointment at the Apple store and they found it. It was stored under a new file. Unfortunately, a couple got corrupted so they had to make a new file and copy it over. They recommend that I backup on the Time Machine and have a second backup on an external drive. The time-saving part is that the external drive if connected constantly it will update all new files/ photos etc as they appear so I don’t have to update it every time I have something new. Rod Marquez sometimes people don’t have the feature on but that’s about it. Personally, mine is off unless I do it first because otherwise if it needs extra space it’ll clear out some space itself. Consumer Protection has lost its meaning so have to become an Android user since they maintain their products! Apple needs to hear all the Hung like epstein shirt with the updates! Get your house in order! Hilda Torres Reyes Apple doesn’t maintain their products? That’s exactly with they do. We’re talking about 8+ year old phones, here. Mobile technology changes quarterly and updates are a necessity – especially when you’re using a device that’s approaching almost a decade old. What this really is, is a testament to the product quality that Apple is known for, that the devices last as long as they do, and with a great deal of functionality. And it just the phones. That’s why you’ll see 2012 & 2015 MacBooks and Macs go for as much as brand new pos PCs today. I’m not even going to say your opinion is misguided. You’re just flat out wrong. I started out Apple, went Android/PC for 6 years, now I’m back and not again. You can keep the widgets and comic sans text font. I prefer a quality product with simple and practical functionality and one that I could keep for 8 years if I so desired.
