How would you upload it if not with a computer?

Google play music is an option, you can upload up to 10,000 songs for free and either stream or easily choose which ones to store on your device, and it's also compatible with PC and android and has a browser interface so it's basically accessible on any device.

No, well ish no.

If you want your current stuff as is then no, if you want to go via a streaming services like Google Music, Apple Music, Spotify, Deezer etc. then yes.

I think you can do that if you turn on iCloud Music Library.

Google Play Music sounds like what I want so I'll try that first. Thank you, all.

What does it mean if "delivered" doesn't appear at the bottom of an iMessage? It's the first time I've not had it (and it's not showing as undelivered either).

I think it means it's been sent from your phone successfully but not received by the other phone either because the phone is off or doesn't have signal.

Why can't I drag and drop files from Mac onto an external hard drive? Some bullshit about NTFS not being supported and needs to be FAT32 which no ones likes because you can't transfer files larger than 4GB.

This sort of stupid gooseberry fool is why "it just works" is a lie. Non obvious and interior alternatives to right click and no support for mainstream harddrive formats.

I'm not willing to format or create a new partition. I'm just ranting and hoping there's an easier solution. How can it be 2017 and they don't support NTFS?

Because NTFS is a Microsoft format, and Apple are Apple.

My Western Digital external HDD had a driver you could download from their site specifically for that.

Has anyone had this happen to their USB cable?

The plastic has somehow broken and there's a crack appeared on the plastic. First time I've ever had any sort of cable wear out on me.

When: June 5, 6PM GMT
Where to watch : Apple Official Stream
Live Blog:

So what are people excited to see?

I really hope they start to improve the interface of iOS. Started to look a bit dated around the edges. MacBook Pros with the Intel chipset would be ideal.

Has happened to every iPhone cable I've owned. Probably because I wrap them around my finger to keep them small and neat when transporting them. I've used some electrical tape to hold it together and so far it's worked even though it doesn't look nice

Missed it because I was at work. Just catching up on my phone and that Homepod looks pretty cool. I've been looking looking at buying a Sonos for a while but this looks pretty sweet depending on if it has Spotify integration.

Sending cash via Apple Pay over iMessage is gonna be pretty handy too with my mates. Read something about a one handed keyboard and password auto fill in apps too which I've been wanting for ages.

all hooked heavily in to Apple Music. Only Apple Music, though: Spotify subscribers will have to go elsewhere, it appears.
