  1. Can you tell me if there is a procedure to follow when looking for channels I want to watch on Apple TV? For instance, check the channel web site; check the Apple Store, etc?

  2. Hi. Are you familiar with the iPhone 6s home button issue? I had this new phone a year ago, after unboxing I quickly noticed that the home button is not responsive if not pressed hard enough. Do you have any tips or solution for this? Thanks.

    • I have an iPhone 6, which has pretty much the same Home button. I’ve had the phone for two and a half years, and the Home button still works fine. I’m not familiar with the issue. I did some research and most of the fixes involve cleaning the Home button with alcohol, which I don’t recommend. The best thing you can do is to take it into the Apple Store (especially if it is still under warranty) or a qualified service technician. You can also alter some Accessibility settings to turn on AssistiveTouch, which will present an on-screen Home button.
