In today’s quick tutorial, you will learn how to quickly send pictures and other files for your iPhone to your Mac computer using AirDrop.

How to display most recent email replies on top in Mac

It may sense if you read emails of somebody from your team or suffer from memory loss, but for me personally it would be better to reverse this order and see the latest reply at the top. I usually remember the content of previous emails and even if I don’t I can quickly go back and read it.
