Visionary Mojave Advice

Visionary Mojave Advice

On Monday (Sept 24th), Apple will release the next-generation of the Macintosh computer operating system called macOS 10.4 Mojave. We’re very excited for Mojave because it’s jam packed with some incredible new features like Dynamic Desktop, Stacks, Continuity Camera, and improvements to the Finder, Quick Look, FaceTime, the App Store & more. However what really sets it apart is that for the first time in a very long time, we’ve got a completely redesigned UI (User Interface) called Dark Mode. It’s not only super cool and sinister, it’s easier on the eyes and helps keep you focused. In any case, upgrading your Mac’s OS is a major endeavor which shouldn’t be taken lightly. There are often serious consequences and side effects. We’ve got just three simple suggestions which can help make your upgrade as smooth and safe as possible. Trust me, follow this advice…

An important message from Visionary Computer regarding ISP email.

An important message from Visionary Computer regarding ISP email.

Recently, we’ve had a massive increase in the number of customers using legacy Internet Service Provider (ISP) email systems that are having increasing difficulty getting new mail, sending mail, or moving their account to a new computer or modern OS. If you have an email address ending in @snet.net, @sbcglobal.net, or several others which no longer exist, you are in jeopardy of losing access to that email and we strongly recommend switching to an email system not tied to your ISP such as Gmail or iCloud.

Visionary Computer and iPhone Battery Replacement

Visionary Computer and iPhone Battery Replacement

Apple recently released a statement regarding iPhone batteries and performance. In that statement, they offered reduced pricing on battery replacements for qualifying iPhones during the year 2018.

We are however reducing our iPhone battery replacement pricing down to just $79.95 including parts, labor, and testing.
