Check the model number by holding down the option/alt key while selecting About this Mac under the Apple menu. Select System Information and it will tell you the model number.  Compare it to:
Model Number - iMac
You can then check against the link mende1 provided.
If you then go with Niel's suggestion, you can check here.
Computer Compatibility - Lion
You also might want to check applications compatibility since neither lion or Mountain Lion support PowerPC applications.

  • Changed my ID but the Iphone 4 continue with the old ID name and does not syncronize. How can I change it in my Iphone so I can continue to use all my data stored like contacts and notes?

    Do you mean through iCloud?  You need to go to settings > iCloud and "delete account" and then sign in with the newly named account.  You'll want to do similar for facetime, messages, and store.

  • Both my pc and android phone are synced to Firefox, but the devices are not syncing with each other

    Each device (pc + android phone) is logged into Sync, but there is no sync sharing happening

    HI msknack,
    Thank you for your question. I understand that both of the devices are not syncing to match. Can you please check the following:
    *Are they on the same version of sync? (Android account should not list Firefox Sync (deprecated))
    *Are the managed items checked to be synced in the sync options?
    Posting back could help out other users as well.

    Bought an album on iTunes. One of the 27 tracks on the album won't play. Get a pop up window saying - "This computer is not authorized to play "All Time High". Would you like to authorize it?"
    I sign in with my Apple ID and password and then I get the message saying "This computer is already authorized."
    How can I play the track?

  • I have three computers (Dell and HP) two I phones and I cannot get the iphones to sync with the computers.  I recently installed ITunes 11.0 on all computers and have no success getting iphones to sync since then.  The iphones are a 4 and a 3S

    I have three computers, 1 dell and 2 hps.  I have downloaded the new 11.0 on all computers and now am unable to get my iphones to sync.  I also can't get the home sharing to work...shouldn't I be able to get all libraries from all computers on both phones...if they would download?  It tells be I have to delete the previous libraries to add the phone to a new computer.

    If you no longer have the computer(s) you want to deauthorise,
    Log in to iTunes,  go to "view your account info" on the itunes store,  deauthorise all five, (Please Note: this can only be done Once every 12 months)  and then re-authorize your current Computer(s) one at a time.

  • My IPod's screen is not responding to touchscreen, but the buttons are working perfectly what can I do?

    Hello everyone!
    My IPod was shut down because my charger broke so my IPod was not turned on for 3-5 days, luckily I had a 1 year warranty and I charge my IPod when I get the charger which was replaced with a new one for free. So when I turn on my IPod, it's almost fully charged, so I try to "Slide to Unlock" It doesn't work. I  went on and tried again and again, I just tried to turn on the brightness because we were in a car and it was sunny, what do you know? It doesn't work, then my dad took it and wiped it with a fine cloth, he told me I had greasy hands (because it was hot outside) so it wasn't working. Then he tried and tried. After that I made an appointment with apple genius bar. But if anyone knows whether they replace it or not please let me know because I do have the receipt and a 1 year warranty and I don't want to go in there like a fool expecting a replacement when they won't let me. I know I did nothing to it because I take the best care of it, I do not let anyone touch it, I do not put it near water. I hope that's enough details! Please if you know the answer, answer ASAP,
    Thank you!

    No receipt is required if entering the iPod's serial number here show you have warranty coverage

    If the iPod is defective, within warranty and not abused (for example shows signs of being dropped) Apple will exchange it with a refurbished one at no cost.

  • My iTunes is suddenly saying both my iPod & iPhone are synced with another computer, which they have not been.

    I recently lost all of the music from my laptop's hard drive, and therefore from i-Tunes.  I still have all of my music on my iPhone (3GS) (and a smaller version on my iPod Touch (3)), however when I try to sync them iTunes says the devices are synced with another computer & the only options I have is to erase the iPhone/iPod & sync with the very little music that has been able to be recovered back into iTunes, or to transfer the purchases.  I have checked the computer is authorised for my iTunes account, and have transferred the purchases back.  I really don't want to have to reload my CDs on when they are all on other devices.
    Does anyone know why iTunes is suddenly not recognising devices it did previously, and how I get it to recognise them again?  And most importantly, how I can transfer the music on my iPhone/iPod back into the laptop's iTunes?

    The music was accidentally deleted as I was cleaning up my SafeSync account (like a Cloud) & I unwittingly deleted My Documents & My Music from my hard drive as I did so - these are the only files that were affected.  So no catastrophic issue apart from me not knowing what I'm doing.
    And IT guy performed a recovery for me but was only able to retrieve about 10% of my documents and only 45 songs of the 1700 or so I had.  There is no up to date back up of my computer - trust me I've learnt a lesson there.
    Since then iTunes doesn't recognise my devices as being synced to that computer, but there is no other computer for them to be synced to so I don't understand how this happened or how to fix it.  I understand that my devices aren't back ups, but it seems stupid to lose the 1700 songs I have on my iPhone.  I have transferred the purchases, but the majority of them are songs I've loaded from CDs & obviously it would be a very time consuming process to try to reload all of them - obviously something I would like to avoid if possible.

  • I deleted some of my text message histories to get rid of 'other' space (6.33 gb). They were gone from iMessage, but they still showed up in search, so they were still taking up space on my phone. I synced my iPhone (4s) but the messages are still there.

    I deleted some of my text message histories to get rid of 'other' space (6.33 gb). They were gone from iMessage, but they still showed up in search, so they were still taking up space on my phone. I synced my iPhone (4s) with iTunes but the messages are still there. How can I get rid of these texts for good and have more space on my phone? 6.33 gb of other space is way too much, thats almost half of my overall available space (13.5 gb.) I don't want to reset my phone and lose all my other texts/ app progress/ photos. I do have backups, but when I restore from the backup the other space comes back along with everything else. What can I do to get rid of this other space and the 'deleted' text messages? (I'm running iOS 6.1.3 if that helps)

    But once again, I do not want to lose my other texts, app progress, and photos. I could sync the photos but i would still lose the app progress and texts. I would only restore if it was the only option left, but the other space, as already stated, isnt the main concern. The main concern is those 'deleted' texts. If they go, then a good size chunk of the other space goes. I know you CAN delete texts for good. It worked fine before. All i want to know is why its not working for me now, and how to fix it.
    I also know that when you delete texts on your iphone, they get marked for deletion, however they stay on your device (thats why they show up when you search for them.) then when you sync your device with itunes, the texts marked for deletion should disappear. When i synced they didnt disappear. Thats what i need an explanation/solution for. Why the texts marked for deletion didnt get fully deleted after the sync.

  • TS3999 My iPad is not syncing calendar events via iCloud that I enter on my iPhone 5, but events entered on the iPad are syncing with the iPhone.

    My iPad is not syncing calendar events via iCloud that I enter on my iPhone 5, but events entered on the iPad are syncing with the iPhone.

    On you phone, go to Settings>Mail,Contacts,Calendars>Default Calendar and make sure you have selected a calendar listed under your iCloud account as your default.  If not, make this change, then enter a new event on your phone and see if it syncs properly now.
    If your settings are already correct, or if after changing them it still isn't syncing properly, make sure all the calendar events on your phone are in your iCloud calendar.  If not, enter any missing events either on your iPad, or on icloud.com from your computer.  Then, after your iCloud calendar is up to date, go to Settings>iCloud on your phone and turn Calendars to Off.  When prompted, choose Delete from My iPhone.  After a minute or so, turn Calendars back to On to sync your iCloud calendar back to your phone.  Then try adding a new event on your phone and see if it syncs properly now.

    Connect your device, select it in the left-hand column, then change the settings on the various tabs to sync the media content your library to the device. Anything already on it may be removed. If that would be a problem see Recover your iTunes library from your iPod or iOS device.

  • I Have a new iPhone 6 and my contacts, calendar and notes won't sync between my imac, macbook air, iCloud. The three are fine, but the data won't reach my new iPhone 6. OS Yosemite, iOS 8.1.1

    I Have a new iPhone 6 and my contacts, calendar and notes won't sync between my ipad air, imac, macbook air, iCloud. The three are fine and they sync OK...but the data won't reach my new iPhone 6. OS Yosemite, iOS 8.1.1
    Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    Hi vichochile,
    If you are having an issue with syncing your new iPhone with the information that is in iCloiud (and on your other devices) we should make sure that iCloud is set up correctly on the iPhone. See this page for directions -
    Apple - iCloud - Learn how to set up iCloud on all your devices.
    Thanks for using Apple Support Communities.
    Best,

  • HT4907 I am able to connect to my Mac Mini on Back to My Mac through iCloud but the keyboard/trackpad on the MBAir or MBP with which I access does not register on the Mini.  So I can see the screen but cannot interact with it. Mini works accessing MBP/Air

    I am able to connect to my Mac Mini on Back to My Mac through iCloud but the keyboard/trackpad on the MBAir or MBP with which I access does not register on the Mini.  So I can see the screen but cannot interact with it. Mini works accessing MBP/Air and I can use Mini to input data or interact with screens of those computers.

    Regarding your first question about bookmarks, I think you discovered the answer in when you pressed the address bar. The second tab there has your bookmarks.
    As for the keyboard, I'm not sure why your Firefox is reacting so slowly; mine seems to show keyboards even when I don't want them. If you have accumulated a lot of history, perhaps that's an issue?
    Did you use any third party software to move your Firefox data from internal memory to the storage card?

  • TS4118 Ever since I got the iphone 5  my phone/icloud calender and contacts will not remain synced with Outlook.  I am constantly having to sign in and sign out and  unlink and re link to Outlook.

    Ever since I got the iphone 5  my phone/icloud calender and contacts will not remain synced with Outlook.  I am constantly having to sign in and sign out and  unlink and re link to Outlook.  this creates multiple categories of contacts and calenders and I have no idea which is syncing with my phone, ipad, outlook.  Help.  thanks.

    Sounds like the Outlook plugin isn't working properly.  You could try a couple of things:
    Go to Start>Control Panel>Add/Remove Programs, uninstall iCloud, the download and install the iCloud contol panel for Windows again from here: http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1455.  Then sign back into your iCloud account and check your syncing settings again.
    Uninstall iTunes and all of its components as by following this guide exactly: Windows XP or Windows Vista/7, then reinstall iTunes.  You must follow this guide exactly or it will not be successful.  (Uninstalling iTunes will only remove the application; it will not touch your iTunes library or data.)  This will replace the Outlook plugin.
    Then try your calendar again and see if it will sync properly now.
