Article: You Can Now Upgrade to macOS 13 Ventura When You’re Ready

How to Share a Contact Card without Sharing Everything in iOS 16:

Apple makes it easy to share contact cards on the iPhone or iPad—just scroll down in a contact and tap Share Contact. But what if you don’t want to share every piece of data on that card? To avoid oversharing in iOS 16 or iPadOS 16, tap Filter Fields at the top of the Share sheet and deselect the private items. If the card has a lot of data and you want to share only a few items, tap Deselect All Fields at the bottom of the sheet and select only what you want to share. Unfortunately, your selections aren’t remembered if you share the same card again later, so be sure to reset your selections each time you share.

Year to year Apple is always finding ways to make their iPhone camera system more advanced, re-defining the industry standard for smart phone cameras. The camera is always among the leading reasons to upgrade as well. So why not protect it? These phones are an investment. If you have an iPhone 12 or newer, we strongly recommend adding a camera protector to your back lenses for added durability. That can really be a life-saver as one of our own teammates discovered recently. Accidents can happen any time and it’s best to be prepared for them before they happen.

We will be stocking up on these soon for newer models of iPhones. Reach out or visit one of our shops if you have any questions about how to best protect your phone.

Article: What Is Advanced Data Protection for iCloud? Should You Enable It?

Do you want more security for your iCloud account? Apple’s Advanced Data Protection can now provide end-to-end encryption for nearly all iCloud data. But be aware that Apple won’t be able to recover your account if you forget your password.

If Your Holiday Gift Was a Tech Device, It’s Time to Change the Password!

Whatever consumer electronics product you can name, there’s probably a “smart” version that you configure via an app or Internet-connected interface once you’ve connected it to your Wi-Fi network. For ease of setup and to keep costs down, many such devices come pre-configured with not just a default username and password, but the same default username and password as all other units. That’s bad enough, but worse, most people never change those defaults, which is just asking hackers and malicious bots to break in and take over. This risk is real—it has happened to security cameras, baby monitors, light bulbs, DVRs, toasters, refrigerators, and even fish tanks. So, if you received any so-called “Internet of Things” devices for the holidays—or have one or more already installed on your home network—immediately change the usernames (if possible) and passwords to something more secure. Store the new usernames and passwords in your password manager for future reference.

How to differentiate an Apple Authorized Service Provider from a “pretender.”
Apple doesn’t hand out “Apple Authorized Service Provider” medallions to just any shop. There are rigorous standards to be met and maintained. I.T. Worx worked hard to earn this medallion, and we had to do so for each of our locations. The “Apple Authorized Service Provider” medallion is granted on a “per location” basis, not “per business.” If you want to verify that you are indeed about to work with an Apple Authorized Service Provider, visit Apple’s very own webpage (link below). Enter the business name and city to find out if the business you are about to patronize has done the hard work necessary to be declared “Apple Authorized.” Or just come to I.T. Worx and find the medallion prominently displayed on our storefront windows! I.T. Worx — We’ve done the work!

AutoFill in Safari Not Working? Set “My Card” in Contacts

We heard from a client that AutoFill in Safari suddenly stopped entering her name and address in Web forms when she chose Edit > AutoFill Form or pressed Command-Shift-A, forcing her to enter her contact information manually, like an animal. (And yes, the “Using information from my contacts” checkbox was selected in Safari’s AutoFill preferences.) Although we have no idea what caused the problem, the solution turned out to be simple. She went into Contacts, found her personal contact card, and chose Card > Make This My Card. Give this a try if you’re having trouble with AutoFill or haven’t yet started using it in Safari.

Did you know that your future service experience could be affected by where you buy your devices? Certain services require proof of purchase from a valid Apple Authorized Reseller (like I.T. Worx) or the service will be declined. Pawn shops, second hand stores, or even Amazon shops that aren’t operated by Amazon directly do not qualify as “Authorized” in Apple’s system. Be cautious of where you buy your next Apple device. If you like supporting local businesses and want to ensure that you are buying from an Authorized Reseller, come on in to I.T. Worx so you can feel secure in your next purchase.

Upgrade Past macOS 10.15 Catalina to Keep Getting Microsoft Office Updates:

We aren’t quite ready to recommend that everyone upgrade to macOS 13 Ventura, but if you use Microsoft Office with macOS 10.15 Catalina, you should start planning for an upgrade. Microsoft has announced that current versions of its productivity suite—Office for Mac 2019, Office for Mac 2021, and Microsoft 365—will receive updates only if your Mac is running macOS 11 Big Sur, macOS 12 Monterey, or macOS 13 Ventura. If you keep using Catalina, your Office apps will continue to work, but they won’t receive enhancements, bug fixes, or security updates past October’s 16.66 updates. Contact us if you have questions about appropriate upgrade paths.
