Playing the waiting game with the new MacBook

Playing the waiting game with the new MacBook

Want a new MacBook? Be prepared to wait, because you can't just walk in to an Apple Store and walk out with one.

I can understand why demand has outstripped supply so radically for the Apple Watch: It's a brand new product category for Apple, and they're taking it cautiously. I'm less clear on why that's also the case for the new MacBook.

I'd love to see Handoff for iTunes in iOS 9

I'd love to see Handoff for iTunes in iOS 9

One of Continuity's best features is Handoff — the ability to push not just data but state between iPhone, iPad, and Mac.

Using Handoff, you can start an email on your iPhone, sit down at your Mac, tap an icon, and finish right where you left off. You can start reading a website on your Mac and then grab your iPad, swipe, and plop down to keep reading on your couch. As long as you're logged into the same Apple ID, and in proximity, everything you do can be started, continued, or finished on all of your devices. Well, not everything — there's currently no Handoff support for iTunes. And I'd love it if iOS 9 changed that.

Streaming iTunes videos eating up storage on your iPhone or iPad? Here's the fix!

Streaming iTunes videos eating up storage on your iPhone or iPad? Here's the fix!

Streaming your iTunes video purchases on iPhone and iPad should let you save lots of precious storage space on your iPhone or iPad.

However, for a small number of people, iTunes file caching seems to be eating up more space on their devices. This happens when iTunes doesn't properly delete the cached files once you're done streaming a video. This can result in your "Other" storage growing to a tremendous size, and the dreaded "out of storage" message popping up on your iPhone or iPad. This is exactly the issue our reader John is having:

If I stream a movie, it seems to buffer the whole movie, and it never lets it go. I will find that "Videos" is using many, many gigs of storage, even if I have nothing downloaded. How can I fix this?

If you're having the same issue John is, follow along for some tips on how to free up your storage and get Videos working properly again!
