Free Display Repair
Does your MacBook Pro display look like this? Good news! Apple is taking care of it for free. The free repair program was about to expire, but they have extended it. So if you’ve been frustrated with that nasty looking display, go get it fixed! Make sure to do a backup before you go just in case.
Duplicate Files Fix
Looking for an app to remove duplicates from your Mac? I’ve been doing a ton of research recently for cleaning up your photos and came across Gemini 2. These are the same people who made CleanMyMac 3 I wrote about last week and they do a great job finding duplicates. Of course no app is perfect in this regard, but Gemini will save you a TON of time. Give it a try here!
Lemon Consulting Black Friday Special
I am so excited for the Black Friday special that I’m working up for you guys and I think you’re going to love it too. Keep an eye on your inbox this Friday for a killer deal that’ll only be available on Friday.
AirPods: Worth It?
You’ve probably seen them around, or maybe even seen me wearing them on a call or on a on-site appointment. It’s the one thing I’m asked about constantly. And you know what? I love them! Everyone I’ve talked to who owns them feels the same way. If the wired version fits your ears well, these will be even better since there are no wires trying to rip them out. If you or someone you love is using headphones or is on call all the time, I’d suggest picking up a pair now before the holiday season kicks off!
Apple Pay Magic
Afraid of your credit card information being stolen from online shopping? Apple Pay is the most secure way to pay online, or in person for that matter. If you see the option for paying with Apple Pay on a site, click it! If you have it setup, you will get an alert on your phone to pick which credit card you want to use, then it will authenticate with Face ID or Touch ID! Seriously, you’ve got to try this. It’s faster than typing in your information, and much more secure. Want to read more about the security of Apple Pay? Click here.
