    Thx Gary, any idea why we still don't see a way to select multiple conversations in Messages to batch delete? To me this is puzzling that such a basic feature is not yet available. Conversations sometimes pile up and it's so inefficient to have to delete one at the time.

    nick: You'd have to ask Apple that. Note that for many people (me included) this is not a problem. I never look to delete conversations, either one or in bulk. What is the reason you want to delete them? They use almost no space.

    Conversations with people whom I communicate with are not a problem, but given the number of one-off conversations that sometimes tend to pile up, I think it's a reasonable request. I have made that suggestion to Apple multiple times, just wondering if you knew of a reason why that's not available, given we can delete multiple emails, files etc.

    nick: My guess is that while you and some others want to make it easier to delete messages, there are more people right now already pleading with customer support to help them recover messages they have deleted and now regret deleting. So making it easier to delete messages is probably more of a dilemma than you think.

    Speaking of new OSs, I got an alert that a system extension, signed by , will not be compatible with a future OS. No extension name. There's no way to find this extension and delete it. This is not the first time I've received such an alert. What good is such an alert if there's no clue to its name and location?

    When copying the wifi passwords is there anyway to see them? If one pastes the copied password into a Note will it appear?

    Hello Gary. Does Duplicate Marked Photos contain only what it perceives to be duplicates while the original picture remains in the library? Or are the duplicates and the original photo both contained in Duplicate Marked Photos? I assume pictures deleted from Duplicate Marked Photos are also deleted from the main library.Finally, do you think you might consider doing a video on how to permanently disable the Live feature on the photos app on an iPhone? Thanks.

    Tom: It does what I show in the video. It shows you the duplicates. You decide what to do with them. As for Live Photos, go to Settings, Camera, Preserve Settings and turn that on for Live Photos. Then turn it off the next time you are in the Camera app and it will stay off until you turn it on again.
