Show Only Downloaded Music on Your iPhone

I use Apple Music and I love it. Being able to stream and download music to an iPhone over a wireless or cellular connection is priceless. But there is one time when I don’t want to stream music at all: when I’m using my iPhone in airplane mode or when I’m in an area with no cellular or wireless connectivity. That’s because Apple Music displays all of my music in one big list, and I can’t tell which music is downloaded to my iPhone - that’s the music I can play without network connectivity - and which music that is currently stored on Apple’s servers - that’s the music I can’t play without network connectivity.

How to Output Stereo Audio in Mono on Your iPad

  Matt Cone       March 4, 2021

Recently I replaced my aging Bose QC25 headphones with a pair of AirPods Pro headphones. Both products are a major upgrade from the stock earbuds that ship with iPhones, but the high-quality audio output also means that you can hear every imperfection in the music. For example, older tracks that were recorded in mono sometimes have output that is only audible in one channel, which means that you can only hear the music in one ear.

How to Enable Your Mac's Audio Equalizer

Your Mac has an audio equalizer (EQ) that allows you to adjust the sound quality of music. The Mac’s equalizer isn’t as fancy as the physical ones that allow you to manually adjust the levels, but it does have a number of presets that will dramatically improve the sound quality of the music you play on your Mac. Unfortunately, the Mac’s equalizer only changes the audio from the Music app. Audio produced by other apps won’t be changed by the equalizer.

Enabling the iPad's Audio Equalizer

It seems ridiculous now, but in high school I purchased a Pioneer stereo system capable of pumping out over 1,000 watts of sound. The speakers and components were huge. It took three car trips just to get everything home from the store! The only thing I miss about that system is the equalizer on the amp, which allowed me to adjust the output of the sound levels. Believe it or not, your iPad has an audio equalizer too.
