[GENIUS] the Shift calendar in iOS, a random access memory in OS X and various accounts Mac App Store

Reliability, coupled with the simplicity, is the cornerstone that Apple founder Steve jobs laid into the Foundation of the “Apple” of the Corporation. However, whatever the technique, its operation process will inevitably arise various questions. Sometimes they are caused by malfunctioning software issues, at least ā€” the fault of the electronics, but, fortunately, there is a category of problems that can be solved without going to repair 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 the problem often faced by users when working with the standard Calendar.

In this case, to correct the situation in a few simple steps. To do this, open the app and choose in the bottom of the screen a section “Calendars”. In the menu that appears, move down again, where is the item “Rejected event”, translate the switch in the “on” position and press the “finish” button in the upper right corner.

After you have done the procedure in reverse order, the entry “Calendar” will be again matching the correct date values. For the advice thank reader nick ksandr.

The second issue is associated with the work of RAM in OS X.

Indeed, this point is of concern not only passed with other systems “newbies” and experienced Macintosh users. The fact that the memory allocation in OS X works under the scheme based on caching. In the General case this means that the system tends to store application data, to speed up their work: for example, if the user worked with the postal Mail client or player iTunes, then after closing the add they used the region is marked as RAM cache. This approach allows to reduce the number of accesses to the storage device, saving the system from having to download these programs again and bootup last. However, the main thing here is that the above is the RAM is dynamically allocated, and if necessary, the system will allocate it to other applications. Thus, reason for concern with enough RAM, because the computer automatically fills the free volume data of programs. However, it is not superfluous to draw attention to the use of virtual memory (swap) that is displayed on the “Memory” tab of the “Monitoring system” (by default located in the Utilities folder). If the volume of data downloaded to the storage device when memory is low, unreasonably high ā€” perhaps you should think about the increase its volume.

In the third case we are talking about update OS X and apps downloaded using a different account.

In this situation it should be clarified what is meant by the deactivation of the computer. The software downloaded through the Mac App Store, is not related to your iCloud account, and to that of the app store. The programs themselves can work in different user profiles OS X, but they will require a login, with which they were purchased. As regards the first point, in his personal practice, the author’s version of El Capitan showed itself exclusively with the best hand, showing not only the bug fixes and new features, but also a noticeable increase in performance.

Finally, some issues related to possible hardware malfunctions.
