Receiving iMessages on your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus but not regular SMS? Here's the fix!

Receiving iMessages on your iPhone 6 or 6 Plus but not regular SMS? Here's the fix!

Your iPhone can receive not only iMessages, which are indicated by blue bubbles, but regular old SMS messages as well, which are represented by green bubbles. If you're using an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus and find yourself only able to send and receive blue bubble iMessages, you don't seem to be alone. This is the question from you guys, or readers, that we're going to tackle this week.

I have an iPhone 6 and can not send or receive regular SMS messages, I am only receiving and sending iMessages. Why isn't my regular SMS working?

This how-to is part of our iOS Help feature, where every week I try and help you fix the problems you're having with your iPhones and iPads. If you have a question or need help with something iOS related that you just can't figure out, I encourage you to drop a question in our iMore forums, no registration required, or send me an email at ioshelp@imore.com

Star Wars fans rejoice! X-Wing, TIE Fighter games return to Mac

GOG.com has updated its recent releases of the vintage LucasArts X-Wing and TIE Fighter games with Mac support.

GOG.com recently made a splash by re-releasing vintage Star Wars games previously published by LucasArts on their digital rights management (DRM)-free gaming service, but Mac users were disappointed to see that X-Wing and TIE Fighter weren't available for their platform (LucasArts did release Mac versions, back in the day). Now that's been fixed, and Linux users get some joy too.

The true magic of the Apple Watch is in what it can't do

The Apple Watch isn't designed to do everything, and that's okay — that's why you have an iPhone, too.

As I get more comfortable with my Apple Watch during day-to-day activities, I've started to figure out what tasks I like doing on it, along with the ones better suited to a larger screen.
