[GENIUS] the loss of the ringtones on the iPhone, “bugs” OS X El Capitan and buy Mac Russian keyboard layout in Europe

Whatever reliable was the equipment, during its operation, questions arise. Some of them are caused by malfunctioning software issues, others with Troubleshooting electronics, but, fortunately, there is a category of problems that can be solved without going to service center or buy a new device. These are the questions most often asked in the comments, and in the Genius category we will try to help.

In the first question we are talking about ringtones that do not appear in the list after reset.

To restore purchased ringtones on your iOS device, you need to: http://www.itunes.com/restore-tones.

Then input your Apple ID account, agree to the restoration and continue to work with the gadget as usual. For the procedure you will receive a notification by opening which you can not only download all the purchased ringtone, but automatically assign them to selected contacts. Of course, do not forget that if your device has the ringtone that you copied from iTunes on a Mac or PC, to avoid re-downloading you should disable them in sync in this program.

The second issue relates to several of the problems with using OS X El Capitan.

The fact is that, according to official manufacturer documentation, the text in the login window is displayed in the language selected during the installation of Mac OS X or when you first start Mac OS X on your new Mac. To change this, go to our favourite app “Terminal” and enter following command (please note that is required and the administrator password).

sudo languagesetup

To set the desired language, select its number from the list and press [Enter].

The second described a problem encountered, and your humble servant. To prevent the extinction of user images after the computer restarts, you can copy them to your system folder with the Wallpaper that is located at: /Library/Desktop Pictures. For this we use a simple key combination [command] + [shift] + [G], enter the address in the box that appears and move the desired image by entering the administrator password. Now the picture can set as Wallpaper using context menu, or select “desktop & screen saver” pane of System preferences.
As you can see, it is not about the failures, but rather about the features in the system, the current release of which, El Capitan, is one of the most stable in recent times.

The last question always relates to current topics — buying a Mac abroad.

In order to buy the device with the standard for the country of the keyboard layout, in the online Apple store there is a special option. To do this, select the product and proceed to the section “Buy” and choose your desired model, get into the configuration page. Here he is lurking we are interested in the item, allowing you to select the marked in the selected language keyboard and a printed user manual.

It should be noted that the availability of this feature should be checked separately for each country. So, in the above German Apple Online Store keyboard was available for order, while the Finnish and American (USA) titles for some reason this doesn’t offer. As for buying offline, on this occasion you should contact the employees of a particular Apple Store.

As you can see, many of the problems with the technique of Apple can be solved in just a few minutes. If you encounter any of them, we recommend you to ask for advice in the comments to this column, because you can simplify the task of the author, and hence speed up the response.
