  • Since update 10.0.2 at 6s "trash all ' in the Inbox.

    Since I did the update (10.0.2) I can no longer just "trash all ' mail inbox (Verizon).  Because I get emails 300 + a day, I need to be able to empty my Inbox easily without deleting all of them individually.  It is very irritating and time consuming.

    Anyway around this?  Thank you...

  • Uninstall software update Apple says error in seller contact package package unstaller

    Try to get itunes working to make a backup of my faulty iphone before repair.

    First-itunes does not start says error. I'm trying to fix it, who said success but same error when you try to start it.

    Then uninstall completely worked. Then reinstall that seemed to be over except for a message "an older version of Apple software update already exists" then he went down and install itunes apparently had not been completed.

    Then I try to remove the update from the apple software and executed by an error in the installation program - it says there is an error in the installation and contact the supplier of the installation package. Same error if I run the uninstall command line program.

    Try to repair the Apple Software Update of programs & features Control Panel and then try to update iTunes again.

    For general advice, see troubleshooting problems with iTunes for Windows updates.

    The steps described in the second case are a guide to remove everything related to iTunes and then rebuild what is often a good starting point, unless the symptoms indicate a more specific approach.

    Review the other boxes and other support documents list to the bottom of the page, in case one of them applies.

    The more information box has direct links with the current and recent if you have problems to download, must revert to an older version or want to try the version of iTunes for Windows (64-bit - for older video cards) as a workaround for problems with installation or operation, or compatibility with third-party software.

    Backups of your library and device should be affected by these measures but there are links to backup and recovery advice there.


  • Since the update for Sierra, contacts do not appear in Messages - just phone numbers.

    Since the update for Sierra, Messages no longer displays Contact names - only phone numbers.  No instructions on how to remedy this.  Ideas?


    Go into the Contacts application and ensure that it uses the same account synchronization like the iPhone and other devices you may be using.

    Also check the part of the accounts of the Contacts application preferences and make sure that it's only using one account.

  • USB disabled after the update of the Sierra (a short circuit and a work)

    Hi, when I bought my mbp 13 inches mid2012 (used, not new) I noticed that a USB port did not work. In the Yosemite sometimes I noticed that a USB port consumed too much energy and have been disabled. (I think because the usb port has been short-circuited. Year when it was time to update the mbp to El Capitan I had a few panic the kernel and the newspaper was shown as the last driver loaded the USB driver, so I kept the mbp with Yosemite. A few days ago, I updated for Sierra but only usb which used to work stopped working. It has enabled and turned on but Finder and disk utility does not see the drive. In an Apple dealer they said that could be established relationships with some oxide and next week will take it and see what the problem is.

    If there is someone with the same problems, please tell me what to do! I don't want to put in the trash my mac just for a flash drive... but I need!

    Hi Supermene,

    Thank you for using communities of Apple Support. Based on what you said, it appears as a USB device is not recognized in one of the USB ports. There are a few things that can cause this. I recommend you read these articles, which may be able to help solve the problem.

  • I can't go to my bookmarks after update for Sierra

    I have a MacBook Pro. I just updated this week to Sierra with no problems, but now when I click on multiple points in the upper left corner to reveal my favorites and my playlist only, it displays the top sites page and does not open my favorites and reading list, as it used to.

    Can someone tell me how to access my bookmarks and playlist in the Sierra? I'm sure it's something in the settings or something escapes me. My Bookmark Bar is the top of the page, yet. I can't find my bookmarks and reading list.

    Thank you

    I thought about it, I had to go to Favorites on top and tell Safari to display in the Sidebar again.

  • Calendar Apple App Bug frozen works only with iOS 10 update grrr

    Since I updated to iOS 10 (more more later than 10.2, etc.), everything was not too bad except THE APPLE CALENDAR app, its deiving me crazy when I click on the app it's like it freezes and past shift x 50 mode still something to do with the calendar app will cause either a frozen or a black screen or white and then crashed ack to main menu. Sometimes it will allow me to create but will be trolling with typing and finally crashed or not even save it... Please HELP I am sure what else to do, I tried to download google calendar and which seemed to have something of bug he loves too then something happens. And I tried to delete it and download it again, / force delivery, nothing has changed

    Hi there calsparks!

    Thank you for bringing your question on the calendar of freezing and trolling since the update to iOS 10 on your iPhone for Apple Support communities.  I rely on the calendar to keep my life organized, so I'm happy to help you resolve this issue today.

    Looks like you did a few good troubleshooting by force to leave the app, force to restart the iPhone and deleting and reinstalling the application calendar.  At this stage my next recommendation would be to backup your iPhone, then erase and restore your iPhone as a new device, then test calendar to see if it behaves correctly, and then restore your backup.

  • new iPhone update

    I have an iPhone 5 and will probably get an iPhone 6s with a new SIM from nano.

    My photos will remain on my iPhone 5 until I save them?  I don't want to put my new sim card in the iPhone 6 and then the old sim become inactive and lose my photos if that makes sense?

    Thank you


    IPhone 5 should run ios 10.2 if not go to settings - about us - software update

    Do update on your WiFi.

    Then go to settings - iCloud backup now.

    The new iPhone set up on your WiFi when you are asked if you want to use iCloud backup say Yes.

    Use the same identifier apple then you will get all the apps / photos on the new iPhone.

    See you soon

    Scroll down to Italian, and then select Luca, and then click OK.

    It will take a few moments to download the new voice.

  • I tried to download macOS Sierra for the last hours on my Mac, but it is still holding still to download. Should I download the El Capitan instead? All sites tell me that I should update my Safari.

    I tried to download macOS Sierra on my macbook pro iOS 10 for a few hours and it still has several hours to go. Should I just download the Capitan instead? All sites tell me that I should update my Safari or I wouldn't even through this disorder.

  • iMac does not start after the update of the Sierra...

    Don't know what to do. Sierra, just updated and now my system hangs during startup and turns off.

    Anyone else seen this? No idea what I can do?

    Try a safe boot. Otherwise, you might to reinstall macOS.


    Stop your Mac. Use the power button if you wish. Now start with the SHIFT key is pressed. This will start in Safe Mode, with all extensions turned off. Safe mode is slow to start, so give it time, it checks a lot of tasks. If it works fine in Safe Mode, restart normally. If it works now, you are finished.

    If the problem comes back after a reboot, you may have an extension conflict. Disable all extensions via system preferences. To isolate which extension is at fault, turn on an extension at the same time, restart in the meantime, until you find bad.
