Customer Question
My wife and I...

My wife and I have NUMEROUS apple devices and she wants to share my entire music library from my Mac Book to her iPad. How do we do that?

Technician's Assistant: What Operating System (OS) are you running on your MacBook? What about your iPad?

Both are up to date.

Technician's Assistant: What troubleshooting have you tried with your MacBook?

None.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Mac Expert to know before I connect you?

Can't think of anything. Just i have iCloud access, and we might be able to share music if she can access it.

To share music from your MacBook to any other Apple device on your network, you will need to keep itunes open on your laptop (and not close your laptop) while the other devices are streaming the music. Also, you will only be able to do this while your MacBook and the iPad are on the same network. Is this what you were looking to do?

What Customers are Saying:

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
