Got an Apple, Mac, or iOS tech question? We've got the answer. This time the focus is on the Find and Spotlight functions in Mac OS X, which can be essential for locating files on your computer. But what do you do when that function just stops working? We'll show you how to get it running again.


I recently moved all my content to a new Mac running OS X Yosemite, and everything is working great except that the Finder won't actually find anything! When I hit Command + F and run a search, most files aren't showing up, even ones that I can actually see and know should be there. How do I fix this?


When the Find command stops working properly, usually it means that the contents of your Mac need to be re-indexed. Fortunately, it's a pretty easy process. 

If your files aren't showing up in searches, add your hard drive to this list, then remove it.

Start by opening your System Preferences, then select Spotlight. Click on the privacy tab. Here you'll see any private locations that aren't going to be searched when you use the Find command or run a Spotlight search. Though it might seem counterintuitive, drag the icon for your hard drive(s) onto the list — or, if you'd prefer, just drag over any specific folders that you think aren't being searched. Once you've done that, click the folders or hard drives you just added, then hit the minus button to remove them from the list, which will cause their contents to be re-added to the search index. 

The reindexing process can potentially take a long time (several hours) depending on how many files you have, but once it's done, your searching capabilities should be restored.

With Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference looming on the horizon in just over two weeks, speculation about what Cupertino will introduce with iOS 9 is at an all-time high. Our Thursday edition of Apple Daily takes a look at the latest new features rumored for the iPad and Apple Maps, as well as a peek at Apple Watch bands out in the wild for the very first time.

iOS 9 Could Bring Split-Screen View, Multi-User Logins for iPad

9to5Mac today reported Apple has a number of new initiatives in the works to help stimulate sagging iPad sales, including the arrival of one or more long-rumored 12-inch models, and at least one major software change sources say could arrive with the first developer beta of iOS 9 expected next month during WWDC.

iPad split-screen mockup

That feature involves a new multitasking split-screen, side-by-side mode allowing two different apps to be displayed at the same time, a feature Microsoft's competing Surface tablets have offered for some time now. Apple's implementation of this feature apparently involves 1/2, 1/3, and 2/3 views, which includes "multiple views of the same app" — for instance, showing two different Safari browser tabs or Pages documents at once.

Split-screen was supposedly something Apple hoped to debut with iOS 8 last year, but has continually been pushed back to focus on the iPhone 6 and Apple Watch. Further down the line, Apple is also rumored to introduce support for multiple users, allowing two or more family members or co-workers to share the same device.

Apple Retail Stores Begin Stocking Apple Watch Bands

Apple Watch early adopters can now pick up alternate bands for their smartwatches at Apple Retail Stores in the United States, U.K., and presumably other countries on the initial launch list, according to a report on MacRumors.

Twitter user @AppleRadar posted a photo of Sport ($49) bands in multiple colors and Classic Buckle ($149) bands on the shelves of a retail store in Miami. This marks the first such confirmed sighting of the accessories, which have been exclusively sold online up to this point. Anyone else seeing Apple Watch bands turning up in their local stores?

Transit Services Once Again Rumored to Arrive with iOS 9 Maps

In a separate report, 9to5Mac reiterated that transit directions are apparently still on the radar for iOS 9, which would finally deliver bus, subway, and train route navigation to the built-in Maps app.

Apple Maps public transit directions

Sources claim these features — which were originally on track for iOS 8 last year, but pulled prior to WWDC 2014 — will not only help public transit riders plan their routes, but also provide a dedicated Transit view alongside the current standard, hybrid, and satellite or flyover modes. Apple has been spotted ramping up hiring of engineers specializing in transit routing, so presumably it's just a matter of time until the fruits of their labor arrive on iOS and OS X.
