Say you’ve deleted your messages before backing up your iPhone. Usually the best iTunes can offer is a shrug. With a convoluted and opaque system of options, it makes a task that should be a simple matter — finding the stuff you need and getting (or returning) it to your device — overly confusing and frustrating. Worse yet, iTunes can often lead to results you’re not looking for.
Preorders for the iPhone 7, iPhone 7 Plus and Apple Watch Series 1 and Series 2 have started.
Time is of the essence as you make your overnight purchase: Taking even an extra few minutes to place your preorder could leave you with a second-choice device or cause your shipment to be delayed. (Initial units will ship Sept. 16 to stores in 28 countries.)
Demand for the new devices is already high, so check out Cult of Mac’s guide to helping you get the exact iPhone 7 or Apple Watch you want.
You know that feeling when you get a new iPhone case and find yourself wondering why it couldn’t be just a little — maybe even a lot — thinner? Sickening, right?
After all, the iPhone was designed to sit in your hand like a slender sliver of shiny wonder. The more it gets sheathed in armor, the less it feels like the sleek, tactile technological marvel that it is.
Now that the iPhone 7 has finally been revealed, you are probably experiencing some mixed emotions. Elation at the possibilities of the new dual-camera system. Despair that the dual-lens hardware is only available on the iPhone 7 Plus. Sheer terror at the loss of a headphone jack. And yet pure desire to own the new iPhone 7 — especially in that jaunty Jet Black color.
Chances are the only thing better than getting the new iPhone is that we will pay you cold, hard cash for your old iPhone. Seriously. And the sooner you sell your old phone, the more money you can get for it. In this post-keynote world we’re now living in, buyback prices tend to drop very quickly, so check out our Cult of Mac iPhone trade-in page and get a quote for your old device today!

It’s almost time for the iPhone 7. And, as when any new iPhone model hits the scene, there are sure to be plenty of people staring at their newly booted devices, wondering where some of their favorite data went.
For many of us, Instagram is the primary place to get our daily fix of fresh images and videos. We’ll spend hours browsing the feeds of friends and family, and our favorite artists, public figures or journalists. But all that addicting content — including what you post yourself — stays on Instagram’s servers, where it’s a bit of a hassle to find and only accessible by logging in.
With the new iPhone coming up fast, excitement abounds for Apple lovers. However, one downside of next week’s iPhone 7 event is the impending drop in value of your old Apple devices.
Every year, newer models push older iPhones, iPads and MacBooks further and further down the path to obsolescence. But there’s good news: Cult of Mac will still buy your old devices. And we’ll help you maximize the money you get for your iPhone trade-in, too.

Conversations, photos, notes — with the iPhone, the data we rely on most has never felt closer or more convenient. But when something goes wrong and that data disappears, it’s anything but convenient. And iTunes, with its tricky backup scheme based on bulk syncs rather than individual selections, doesn’t always help.

If you’re developing a Mac app, you’re faced with a major either/or decision: whether to distribute inside or outside of the Mac App Store (MAS). Sticking to the MAS means you’ve got access to tools for licensing, hosting, crash reporting and other necessary tasks. However, Apple’s tools may not be what’s best for your app.
