    How do you delete already deleted messages? when I text someone a million previous recipients show up. I want to delete those people from a previous group text. Thanks for everything! I always learn a lot from you.

    I wish you did not talk so fast. It seems you are in a hurry, that's what I understand because you have a lot of work to do. But English is not my mothertongue, so please try next time to present your information more in a relaxed manner, more slowly. Thank you and keep up the excellent work you do. I learn a lot from you. Thanx!

    I enjoy your tutorials (although you're so quick I need to pause & rewind often. )You force touch often but when I try I get little x's to delete icons. I have 6plus w 10.2.1 help please

    Hi David, I have a question: why some of my contacts have a photo (some are from LinkedIn, some are from Facebook) but some of them don't have a picture … do you know how to resolve it?

    One of the things I used to like was to be able to select a previous message and copy it and then paste it somewhere else. Now, when you highlight the message to copy it, I can only comment on it!! So frustrating. Do you know how you can copy a message you have sent or received?

    Hi David I have just discovered you and absolutely love the way you present and the wealth of information you give. Thank you for your passion of all things MAC it really comes across in your presentations. Love your work!

    Thanks for the informative video Mark & David. So, regarding your response to @RivChick1, does that mean that Android users won't get the GIF's sent from iPhone either?? or do Androids at least receive those?? Thanks again.
