Be­come an Ap­ple Ge­nius

Learn to trou­bleshoot Mac prob­lems your­self

Mac Format - - CONTENTS - Writ­ten by Adam Banks

Com­put­ers are com­plex things and though you’ll have heard the phrase ‘it just works’ in re­la­tion to Ap­ple kit many times, it – like any hard­ware or soft­ware – will surely run into trou­ble at some point. When some­thing goes wrong, it’s tempt­ing to book an ap­point­ment at a Ge­nius Bar to get it sorted out, but that’s not al­ways fea­si­ble. The good news is that many Mac prob­lems can be fixed your­self. Ap­ple even pro­vides soft­ware tools to help you di­ag­nose them and in this Ge­nius Hand­book we’ll take you on a tour of them. Next time you run into a prob­lem, you’ll know ex­actly which tool you need for as­sess­ing it and how to pro­ceed with your in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Your Mac may be run­ning like a dream right now, so you may not think you need this guide. But it’s an im­por­tant read and one you should keep safe: down the road, when trou­ble brings pro­duc­tiv­ity to a halt, you’ll be glad to have it.
