Security threats on the Macintosh
While Macs remain immune to viruses, there are countless scams hoping to draw you in. Don't be fooled. Visit our Security page.

If your MacBook needs a new battery or charger...
Best source for removable batteries and AC-adapters is OWC, online at macsales.com - 2015 and later models go to the Apple Store.

Apple warranty and repair programs
Check your Apple product warranty status by its serial number here.
Repair programs for Apple products are listed here. This includes
13" and 15" MacBook batteries (2015 on), and 13" MacBook display and SSD issues.

Replace or upgrade?
If you're on the fence about a new Mac, this might help you make an informed decision. That "legacy" Mac might not be done just yet.

Protect your MacBook from spills
Moisture sensors will void warranty, and unibody models are costly to repair. Check out keyboard covers from ProElife, Kuzy, Forito or Moshi.

Should I upgrade to Catalina (10.15)?
Short answer (as always): Stay 1 system back. In the case of Catalina, there are some special concerns. See OS upgrade for tips prior to installs.

Need help with an iPad, iPod or iPhone?
We only deal with Macs here, but we've posted a few links for iGizmo support and recommend TechRestore for repairs on iPhones and iPads.

An open letter to Apple
