Today I have a tutorial that will help you to pair your Mac with a wireless Bluetooth speaker. It is a very simple process that takes only a minute and I’m sure that this information will help a lot of people.
Before we start, quick information about Bluetooth speakers. You need to know that there are usually two modes that the speaker can operate. The first one is for pairing. In other words, in this mode, the wireless Bluetooth speaker can be seen by your Mac or other devices for the first time and secure connection is established and the details of if are stored on your Mac. The second mode is just for connecting the speaker to the Mac, but after the pairing has already taken place.
In other words, you need first to pair two devices for the first time. And then they connect almost automatically.
So even before you start the process, you need to check the speaker’s documentation on how to trigger these two modes. Perhaps it’s not necessary for new devices but there are plenty of wireless speakers that need to follow this procedure. After this short explanation, I can start the actual tutorial.

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.
I send pictures to my computer all the time and before when I had an Android phone, I was usually attaching them to my emails and sending them to myself 🙂 Then, I would go to my PC, log on my Gmail account and go to sent folder. This worked fine but, luckily, there’s even an easier way to send files on Apple products. This way is called Airdrop. With AirDrop, you can instantly share your documents, photos, videos, and more with other Apple devices that are nearby.

There was a question regarding this topic posted on our forum so I quickly found out and decided to create a small post out of it. Somebody has asked how to change Mail app icon and I am not sure if this is possible. The trick I discovered works for every app and folder but it does not work for Apps created by Apple. Mail is one of these apps and I think it is not possible to change its icon (if you know how to do it, please let me know in the comments below).
