Apple Will Now Provide Support Via Twitter

Apple Will Now Provide Support Via Twitter:

apple-support

Apple is making it easier for you to get expert support for its products. The company has launched a dedicated support account on Twitter and it will now start offering help through the microblogging network. The official account is already live and it didn’t take more than 30 minutes after it went live to start helping out users facing problems with their Apple products.

 

There doesn’t appear to be anything special about this support account in that it looks like just about any other customer service account that you can find on Twitter. It’s taking questions that cover services like Apple Music, setup procedures for Apple IDs and much more. The account is also going to provide tips on how to use the company’s products.

Apple already has several accounts on Twitter for different services like iTunes, Apple Music, etc but it has never really offered support in this manner. This just goes to show that the company has now grown more comfortable with this format and is open to helping out users through the microblogging network.

It’s not doing anything ground breaking here though. Everybody from fast food chains to airlines use Twitter to provide customer service. One can even say that the company is playing catch up, but I’m sure many of its customers will appreciate having a quicker support channel now.

If you’ve got any queries, tweet @AppleSupport.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

Microsoft acquires iPhone email app Acompli

After accidentally announcing it a little early, Microsoft is officially confirming it has acquired email startup Acompli. The surprise acquisition means Microsoft is picking up a powerful email client for iPhone and Android in another move that further cements CEO Satya Nadella’s focus on cross-platform technologies. The Verge’s Casey Newton called Acompl "the Outlook for iPhone that Microsoft hasn’t yet built," and it seems Microsoft was equally impressed with the powerhouse email app. "We’re excited about what’s possible as we build on the app’s success and bring it together with work currently in progress by the Outlook team," the company said in a statement. "Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.

Apple will disconnect ‘obsolete’ first-gen Apple TV from iTunes in May

Apple has announced today it will drop iTunes support for some older devices from May 25. This includes the first generation Apple TV, and also any PC running Windows XP or Vista. The company is introducing new security changes which will prevent those devices from using the latest version of iTunes.
Apple says that the original Apple TV is an "obsolete Apple product" and will not be updated to support security changes. Only those with the second generation of Apple TV or later will be able to access the iTunes store.
Windows XP or Vista users won't be able to use the latest version of iTunes, but older Windows computers can still use previous versions without support from Apple. Those who do so, however, won't be able to make new purchases or re-download previous purchases on that computer. If you're on on XP or Vista, you'll need to upgrade to Windows 7 or later to continue using iTunes normally.
The writing was already on the wall for these devices: Wi…
