Ask Sir Apfelot - direct support from the Apple Knight

Icon ask Sir ApfelotQuestions about Mac, iPhone, iPad, macOS or other topics?

If you have a question on your mind that you don't know the solution to, I would be happy if you answered this in my Sir Apfelot forum. I am there every day and will answer you as soon as possible.

Why in my forum? Because I myself have repeatedly made the experience in other forums that in addition to answers like "Read the documentation!" often only gets help that is well meant, but ultimately does not help.

For this reason I thought to myself: How nice would it be if you could ask someone personally who has been working with Apple devices and the appropriate software for over 20 years and actually offers you individual help? I am the one for you - for free!

If you have problems with your Mac, iPhone, iPad or your Apple Watch: visits the Sir Apfelot Forum. Maybe I can give you the right solution!

The references

A few comments from readers I have already been able to help:

  • "Hello Jens, Sir Apfelot, if you weren't already knighted, I would do that. Everything worked as you suggested it." - Tony
  • "Thank you for your quick reply, that really sets you apart!" - Johann
  • "Your tips are just great!" Peter
  • "Thank you for your assessment, it helps me a lot." - Oliver (who wondered if you should upgrade your Mac Mini with SSD and RAM again, or if you should wait for a new model)

Why free?

I offer my help for free because I hope that you will recommend my blog and me to others. For me this is free marketing - a fair exchange! ;-)

If you want to support me, you are welcome to take mine free app "Sir Apfelot" to your iPhone. This will give my blog posts a bit more circulation and I might win you over as a regular reader.

One way to give me financial support is through my steady side. There you can become a member and thus promote my blog with an annual contribution.

Anyone who would like to "throw in" something via PayPal can use the service Buy me a coffee use it to buy a virtual coffee.
