    Could not check for an update to the carrier settings for your iPad

    While using my Catalina iMac: Finder popped up saying “Could not check for an update to the carrier settings for your iPad. This device is no longer connected.”—I press OK and get—The iPad “Howard's iPad Pro” cannot be synced. An internal device error occurred.— This has happened 3 times now...

    Finder operation gets stuck.

    When this happens, I can't shut down my Mac without powering it down. Next time it happens, I'll try shutting down my phone then force-quitting my finder and see what happens.

    Finder operation gets stuck.

    My old phone doesn't want to upgrade past 14.2. Maybe that is only an iPhone 12 upgrade. I think I did turn off my phone once when this happened. It's only happened 4 times in maybe a month.

    Finder operation gets stuck.

    Tried to reboot—The Finder can’t quit because an operation is still in progress on an iOS device.—Try again after the operation is complete.—iPhone is spinning, but it is just sitting on my desk not plugged into anything. Force quit Finder, and it restarted, still spinning. Other times when...

    My finder can't see my wife's computer anymore

    I believe so. But it is possible that I never noticed this issue.

    My finder can't see my wife's computer anymore

    I did restart both of our computers. No sign of shared drives on either computer.

    My finder can't see my wife's computer anymore

    My wife’s iMac and my iMac used to see each other’s shared drives in finder. I’m not sure when this stopped, but this week her computer updated to Big Sur. Mine is too old for that upgrade, so it is still in Catalina. Both of our Finder system preferences include “Connected servers” and...

    Can't get Big Sur yet

    FYI: My late 2013 iMac won’t run Big Sur (My wife’s 2107 model has upgraded). The App store is telling me to update GarageBand but it won’t let me because I don’t have Big Sur. I guess I will have to live with the App Store telling me it has an update for me. I’ve been saving up for a new...

    Migrating from an old Mac with a large HD to a new mac with a small SSD

    Going from one computer to a new one with enough space in the new computer is rarely a problem. When he mentioned that he was going to a smaller size, I inferred that the issue was that space was the issue that made this different from normal migration. I may have inferred incorrectly.

    Migrating from an old Mac with a large HD to a new mac with a small SSD

    Which appears to be the OP's problem.

    Migrating from an old Mac with a large HD to a new mac with a small SSD

    How does this get around the problem that the new drive is so small?

    Migrating from an old Mac with a large HD to a new mac with a small SSD

    I see that Apple is selling default iMacs with tiny SSD drives. While other devices are getting bigger drives, iMacs are getting smaller. I'm waiting to buy a new iMac until one app I need gets migrated to 64-bit. I'm hoping that I will buy an ARM iMac, but don't know. Because of that...

    Adding a share to a shared photos library

    Found it. I'm not good at icons, preferring words, and didn't try that head icon. Thanks.

    Adding a share to a shared photos library

    I have a shared photos library on my Mac. I wanted to share it with someone else, but I can't find an option to do so. What am I missing?

    Finder often can't see files on my iPhone

    It is a third party (Condido) recharger. I haven't tried using an Apple charger. I guess I could try both an iPhone and an iPad charger to see if power matters. My interest is that I'm buying my wife some model of iPhone 12 and eventually a MagSafe charger to hold it and her watch and hope...
