Posted by jpluimers on 2018/01/05

… simply hold the refresh button and then tap on Request Desktop Site. The page should refresh and you should be redirected to web.whatsapp.com and you should be looking at a QR code on the screen of your iPad.

If you know it’s “simply”.

Fix Apple TV No Sound Issue – AppleTV2

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/04

The first method I try for any Apple TV issue is to reset the device (Hold the Play & Menu button simultaneously on the remote for 6 seconds)

This usually works for me too and is easier/faster than fiddling with the solutions mentioned at Apple TV: HDMI audio stops working – Apple Support (which now has moved to Get help with audio, video, or power on Apple TV – Apple Support).

After releasing Play&Menu buttons, wait for the Apple TV to reboot itself and listen if your remote-buttons will give you audio-feedback from the Apple TV. If that works, then audio on multi-media works fine.

This is way cheaper than putting additional hardware in the HDMI chain as described in The fix for AppleTV HDMI audio and video woes and HDMI problem solving | The Poor Audiophile

In my setup the Apple TV 3rd generation is hooked up to a Harman Kardon BDS 580 receiver/blue-ray-player.

How to install apps which require iOS 6 on a 1st gen iPad – via: Ask Different

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/05/08

I knew there was a way, but just not exactly how until I read the below trick by Chad.

Unlike the first commenter who thinks the trick only works when you purchased the app when it still supported older iOS versions, the trick also works when you haven’t purchased an app before. I donated an old iPad 1 after wiping it clean. The above method allowed the new user to install for instance Google Drive and other apps (but not Google+: that one refused).

  1. On your iPad 1, go to: “Settings” ==> “Store” ==> under “Apps” make sure it says ‘OFF’.
  2. Go onto your computer (it doesn’t matter if you’re using PC or Mac) and open iTunes software.
  3. Then go to the iTunes store and download all the apps you want to be on your iPad.
  4. Ensure iTunes on the computer and your iPad are both signed into the same Apple ID, and the iPad is connected to internet.
  5. On your iPad go to App Store ==> Purchased ==> click on an individual app you want to install.
  6. Once you select install you’ll get a message pop up that says:”The current version requires iOS 6.1 or later, but you can download the last compatible version.”, choose “Download”
