Whenever you update anything, you need to accept the Apple License Agreement. Only then the new version starts working.

It is not that every time Apple gets a pat on the back when it upgrades. Sometimes, it gets criticized too for its interface and for its over-abundance of features. iTunes 12.2 faced this a lot.

People who upgraded to 12.2 found its features to be confusing, and this version was criticized to such an extent that people said that it destroyed their music libraries. So, these things keep happening.

If you haven’t updated your iTunes so far, make sure to check ‘how do I update iTunes.’ Upgrades are there for a purpose. Whether you implement interfaces on an ongoing basis, or you implement interfaces less often, the importance of keeping your software current is the same.

Upgrades introduce improvements and new features that continually increase the efficiency and time to market. They address/correct bugs encountered in prior versions.

By keeping up-to-date on your own time, you are less likely to encounter compatibility issues in a live setting, better able to deal with new problems, and less likely to find yourself with an obsolete version.

How to Use iMessage on a Windows PC?

How-to-Use-iMessage-on-a-Windows-PC

How to get iMessage for Windows? That’s the question that’s bothering you is it not? Well, it won’t anymore, because by the end of this article you’ll have a definite solution to the problem, and it’s absolutely free.

Now messaging was always “easy”, be it SMS, Whatsapp or now iMessage, the only thing that keeps on changing is the simplicity. Considering the growth this industry is taking to, how could Apple not develop it’s own messaging platform, so they did.

of course, I’ll be showing you how to get iMessage on PC, but before that let’s get into some basics.

What is iMessage:-

As the “i” in the name might have already suggested, it’s an Apple product. And the Message part is clear enough, it lets you message your pals. End of story.

It’s basically just Apple’s version of WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger, of course with quite a number of different features, but the basic goal and functionality remain the same, letting you message with your buddies.

Basic features you get with iMessage:-

  • Free Text Messages:- That’s the whole point, right? To let you send free messages.
  • Unlimited:- No limit on how many texts you can send.
  • Delivery Reports:- I’d say there’s nothing unique here, you get these with Facebook’s messenger as well as Whatsapp.
  • Group Texts:- Again a basic feature, you can group-text your buddies at the same time.
  • Media:- You do get to send photos and videos too.

So you might be asking, what’s the difference between iMessage and SMS, well the very basic difference is that it uses your mobile data or wifi to send and receive messages and not the account balance.

And secondly, the messages sent over iMessage are encrypted while the SMS/MMS we generally send over SMS aren’t as secure.

Now Apple has always been about class and exclusiveness, right? So I thought to bridge the gap, why shouldn’t we get iMessage for Windows, huh?

How to Get iMessage For Windows?

Apple hasn’t released an official version of iMessage for Windows, and it probably never will. But there are always tweaks and tips you can follow and get iMessage for Windows.

Also know this, using iMessage on Windows isn’t illegal (It’s not ethical maybe, but definitely not illegal). So feel free to continue.

In order to use iMessage for Windows, you’d need a third-party iOS emulator for your Windows PC. So go on and download iPedian.

What’s an Emulator?

An Emulator is a third-party software, iPedian in our case which creates the virtual environment of a second operating system on your native system, that enables us to run any application built for this second operating system because technically it does run in the system it’s built for.

That’s the reason it’s not illegal. Because once you download iPedian, you’d get the virtual environment of iOS on your Windows system, so you’re actually running iMessage on iOS and not windows hence no crime committed.

Basic Question:- Will you lose your Windows Installation once you install iPedian?

Nope, you won’t. It’s just a windows simulator for iOS. Meaning your system would start to look and feel like a Mac but it won’t actually delete or change your operating system. The basic functions would still remain the same. It’s like installing a new theme for your android devices.

So once you’ve download iPedian, install it. (it’s simple, just like installing any other Windows software or game.)

How-to-Use-iMessage-on-a-Windows-PC

Once that’s done, you’ll get a search bar just run the app and search for iMessage in the search bar.

How-to-Use-iMessage-on-a-Windows-PC

Once you find the app just download it as a normal application. What’s happening is iMessage things it’s on a native iOS device and not on a windows device so it won’t give you any problems.

So once you’ve downloaded it, you’ll get the icon on your desktop (which now looks like MAC!) Just click on it to run it.

How-to-Use-iMessage-on-a-Windows-PC

Done!~ Here’s an outline of the process on how to get iMessage for Windows.

Download iPedian > Search for iMessage  > Download & Install.

Location Sharing with iMessage:-

The one feature I absolutely love about iMessage is “location sharing”. Basically, if you’re holding a party somewhere, it’s so 1960 to text every friend the address manually, is it not?

That’s where iMessage gives you an edge. You can directly share your location with your friends without typing a single word. So you just reach where you have to, and then share your location with your friends and they’ll know exactly where to be.

How-to-Use-iMessage-on-a-Windows-PC

See? You can share it indefinitely with them, meaning they can keep tracking your current location as long as you want, just like it happens in hacker movies, just without the hacking part!

Final Words:-

So that was all I had folks on How to Use iMessage on a Windows PC. I’m sure this piece should’ve helped you out with the problem. Do let me know if you’re facing any problem with iPedian or the installation in the comment box.

Also do let me know if you’ve other solutions to the problem, if they’re simpler than this I’d love to update this article. And well you can also use iPedian to download and use any other iOS app on your Windows PC using the same procedure. As long as you’ve iPedian, you can turn your normal laptop into a full-fledged MAC, which I’d say is a good enough solution.

So if this piece helped, I’d seriously appreciate you sharing this around, researching and writing these articles take time, all that keeps us going is your feedback and interactions.

This happiness lasts for a few months and then the heartbreaking moment happens. You were listening to your favorite song when suddenly you hear a slight crackle, and the song goes mute. Your valued possession has just turned to a very inefficient paperweight and you are sulking that How to fix headphones not working.

This is a familiar episode that repeats with nine out of ten people. If you wish to know how to fix headphones then you need not waste money every time this episode repeats with you.

We all know that this happens because the cables almost invariably weaken and breakthrough constant movement. The majority of breaks occur just at the point where the cables leave the jack. It is the point of highest stress and thus you should learn how to fix headphone jack.

how to fix earbud

Some manufacturers do use durable cables and reinforce the places where the cables join the jack plug and the phones, but still, they break sooner or later. If you are ready to put in a little effort then you don’t need to throw your headphones into trash over the issue that headphones not working.

How to Fix Headphones not Working on iPhone

If you follow the below instructions wisely, you will be able to fix those headphones. Here’s how to fix broken headphones. So to answer your question “What can I do now that my headphones wont work?”, you will require a few things.

  • The broken earbud headphones that need to be fixed.
  • A replacement jack plug. Buy the replacement that matches the size of your original plug. One thing to note here is that the replacement jack plug will almost certainly be considerably larger than the moulded plug you’re replacing. It is because the tiny plugs fitted in factories are soldered and moulded on by machines.
  • A soldering iron and solder.
  • A vice to hold things safely while soldering.
  • A matchbox or better still will be a cigarette lighter.
  • A penknife, some scissors, or a wire cutter.

Once you have everything ready, follow the step-by-step guide on how to fix earphones.

how to fix earphones

Step 1: The very first thing that you need to do is to get rid of the old jack attached to the wire to reach to the root of the problem. Just cut one or two inches from the old jack. Now you want to strip about 2 inches of insulation from where the jack used to be.

Step 2: As you strip the wire, you will see 4 wires. Two of these will be ground and so they can be twisted together. The other 2 wires should be red and green. The earbud cables are wired up slightly differently in different cables.
You can have a red or green wire inside surrounded by ordinary, copper-colored wire or green or red cable surrounded by red and green “striped” wire. In this case, the stripped red and green is the ground wire, which was copper-colored in the other cable.

Step 3: Now strike a match and briefly heat the ends of all three wires to burn off the insulating covering. You can also use scissors or leatherman to scrape the insulation if you wish.

This step is important for making the proper electrical connection when you solder. Make sure not to burn too much as you just want to get rid of insulation; you definitely don’t want to make wires too black and brittle.

Step 4: Unscrew the case of your jack plug and you’ll find the three terminals for the three wires in your cable: red, green and the twisted ground ones. You need to now solder these wires to the jack, but before doing that there is a common mistake, which people make and then they have to redo it, which is frustrating.

So, before you further proceed on how to fix earbuds, thread the cable through the top (plastic) part of the plug, which is the cover.

Step 5: The time has come for tinning the wires. Tinning means you lightly cover the bare cables with solder so that they make better joints and better electrical contact.

For this, take your soldering iron and cover each wire in solder. If you see a nice, shiny coating you can bang on. This also allows us to slip each wire through the respective holes on the stereo plug easily.

how to fix headphone jack

Step 6: It is very important to make a good mechanical joint between the wires and the terminals. So, poke the wires through the holes and wrap them round a couple of times before you solder. Also, check the wiring before soldering.

Put the ear-buds into your music player and with the wires touching the contacts, see if you hear stereo. If the sound is coming then everything is fine and you just need to secure the connection by soldering them.

If you don’t hear the sound even after touching the wires firmly to the contacts then you need to check your connections again.

Step 7: Once sound starts coming, you can go ahead with the soldering part. The copper-colored ground wire goes to the large outer terminal. The green wire goes to the central terminal and the red goes to the remaining terminal.

Care should be taken not to touch the bottom of the jack plug while soldering as heat travels through the electrical pins quickly and it can burn your fingers. So, always use a vice to hold it.

Step 8: Once you are through with soldering, place all three soldered wires inside the clamp at the top of the plug and crimp it tight with some pliers. This ensures that the soldered connections are secure and don’t break when you pull on the cable.

Now you are ready to reap the benefits of all your hard work. So, sit back and listen to your favorite song using the earphones you just repaired.
