Apple Announce iOS 7 & OSX Mavericks


Amongst the WWDC keynote announcements overnight were new versions to both iOS and OSX.

iOS 7 is a complete overhaul of Apple’s mobile operating system, it has a fresh new look that dispenses with the gawdy, dated wood, leather and felt in favour of a sleek, modern and unified look across the system. Amongst the new features are AirDrop for easy file transfers, a sleek new version of Safari and Control Centre - providing a long overdue fast way to access key apps, media controls and functions such as Airplane Mode, Bluetooth & Wifi.

The new version of OS X leaves behind feline monikers with the name OS X Mavericks. Amongst the major new features are Maps, finder tabs, tags, & iCloud keychain, an easy way to sync passwords across all your devices.

We will offer upgrade services for both Operating Systems when released later this year.



I regret to advise that due to an overseas family emergency, on site services will be unavailable until late April. Please note that the mobile number will be offline while I am overseas. I can still be readily contacted on the landline number, am able to offer limited remote support services and also taking bookings for late April onward.

I sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and look forward to assisting you when I return.

New Look Website, New Features


Welcome to the new look Macsimise website - besides a fresh new look, there are a number of new features for your convenience.

The biggest change is that pages on our site will now adapt to your screen size (known as ‘responsive&rsquoWinking, whether you are using an iPhone, iPad Macbook air or 27” iMac, the content in the pages moves around to the best viewing layout for your screen size. On an iPhone the menu bar shrinks right down to a pop up menu, as do sidebars - this should make viewing our content much easier on smaller screen sizes.

At the time of launch, some of our content (approx 10%) still needs to be updated to take advantage of the responsive nature, we expect to complete those adjustments fairly soon, alongside other improvements we are working on. Some of the other new features on our site include: better social media links, handy tips to help you make the most of your Apple products - we’ll be adding several new tips each week, improved grouping of our services and easier navigation.

In tandem with our site update we have refreshed our logo, stationery and general branding - a fresh new look from top to bottom.

We hope you like the new look and welcome your feedback.
