If you bought the phone from some other person, and not from an official store, the seller might have stolen the iPhone and sold it to you and now the owner is looking for it (I doubt it since you had it for 2 years) If you bought your phone from the official store, your iCloud ID might have been hacked. The solution to activating it would be to go to an ...

I was able to stop my MacBook from using a wifi password that should only be used on the iPhone by going into KeyChain Access -> System -> UNWANTED_WIFI_NETWORK -> Access Control and then removing airport and airportd from the list "Always allow access by these applications". Seems to be still connecting on the iPhone but not the MacBook.

Assuming that you have an iCloud backup since you tagged your question with the "iCloud" tag. If your old iPhone was backed up via iCloud then you just start the Setup Guide (the thing you see when you first start up an new iPhone) and go through some basics like language and connecting it to your Wi-Fi network. After that you will be asked if you want to ...

You have to restore your new iPhone so you can get the "Restore to iCloud BackUp" option, otherwhise you only will get your basic info (Contacts, Notes, App Documnets and Streaming Photos, and all of this if you had them enabled). So if you want to get the BACKUP into the new phone, restore it first and then you can do this, if you only want data sign in ...

I had the same problem, until I realized that the in the iPhone's iCloud settings, Reminders is unchecked by default. So all I did - on my iPhone - was go to Settings > iCloud and then just activate Reminders. Within a few seconds all my Reminders between my iPhone and Mac were synced.

This is really two questions, but let's get brief answers and then you can ask a follow on question if one topic needs more details. MDM profile can only disable saving data from managed apps to iCloud. If your employee buys the app themselves and then adds company data to that app, you have no technological policy recourse and need to handle that with ...

Even when your photos are stored in iCloud, the Photo app will still have a low resolution version of the image on the iPhone so that you can see what photos you have in the cloud. These images are quite small, but will still consume space on your iPhone. If you have selected 'optimise iPhone storage' the app will try to intelligently select photos the be ...

The process for optimizing space is a black box and don't expect it to conform to your expectations and desires. It's going to try to use as much space on your phone as it views as prudent before it starts replacing the original photos with the low-res versions. One action you can take is to turn-off iCloud Photo Library on your phone and let it delete ...

Launch photos, click on the Photos in the top navbar. On the dropdown, click Preferences > General and click Show in Finder. This will open the library. On top of the show in Finder button, there is the path to where the Library is located in. Update: As Tetsujin said, the Library folder appears as a flat file rather than a directory. So access it by Right ...

If you have iCloud backup and iCloud photos/Photo Stream turned on then the photos should be accessible to you when you restore your new phone from iCloud. Photo Stream should also be available to you if you have iCloud photos turned on via icloud.com. If not you may have to see if Apple or a 3rd-party repair shop can get your old phone working to get the ...

iCloud Photo Library puts all your images in the cloud, allowing access from any device you are signed into. It requires enough space on iCloud to store all of your photos. Photo Stream just shares your new photos with your other device, but they aren't actually in the cloud. This doesn't require you to have enough storage space for your photos.

Presumably you are referring to My Photo Stream, which deletes photos after 30 days or 1000 images, which comes first. You don't say which version of iOS you are running, but the below will work on v8. You can save photos to your device from My Photo Stream by tapping the Share icon (an upward pointing arrow) from any photo, then tapping Save Image. You can ...

I too was facing this problem and came up with a slightly more elegant workaround. In the end, I deleted all of the relevant Wi-Fi networks from iCloud Keychain and used configuration profiles to install the network credentials on the desired devices instead. I have written a step by step guide for those not familiar with creating and installing ...

A pickle indeed, data sanitizing is no fun and you have a doozy. If you have access to his iCloud account you can go into contacts, select all of them and click on the gear icon to export them. I do believe that Apple only lets you export as a vCard. I do believe there are a number of utilities that convert vcards to another format, some of them online. ...

There is not really a way to sort a shared album by date taken. I don't think that will be a feature because Apple is trying to make it like Instagram where the posts pop up in the order they were shared and not the date they were taken.

iCloud recently has had updates done which you check the system status at here I had issues with creating new playlists from my phone. When I signed out and signed back into my iCloud account, this functionality came back. I am not sure if this will resolve your issue but could be an unseen issue as to why this may have happened.

Backup the files and click Delete. That will remove them from iCloud. Then you can reimport them and upload them again. When you add them again, it may say "Removed" since you previously deleted them from iCloud. Just right click and add them to iCloud again.

I am pretty sure you can press forgot password on the login screen of iCloud. Enter your email, recieve a link, and change your password. If you cannot reset the account for any reason, you might need to contact apple support or go to an apple store, prove that you are the owner, and they will wipe it and reset your iCloud username and password.

Delete iCloud? You mean sign out I suppose. If you want a separate account without harm of data, Go to Preferences > iCloud and somewhere there are sync options. Disable synchronization (possibly other features), sign out of iCloud, then create a new profile and use it on your iPhone. You might need the previous password to continue.

A late reply, as I found this post while searching for something related. You have to create a new keychain, and copy your iCloud keychain items to the new local keychain. Then you can use the security tool to dump them. Since this is 1Password-related question, for others in the future, you can use MrC's conversion utility to directly convert the ...
