I would use Dropbox for this, creating separate repositories for Sales and Installers. Any changes made on each device will sync back to DropBox, and any changes on DropBox will sync back to the individual devices. My business does this very thing with Marketing, and Sales. The one thing I see as an issue is that any changes will sync immediately, not ...

You cannot uninstall or hide the default Apple apps. You can set up Restrictions [parental controls] to prevent access to particular apps or age-related content. Word of warning - don't forget the passcode or you'll have to wipe the phone & start over. Settings > General > Restrictions. Enable Restrictions & enter a passcode. When an option is ...

In Apple world if you are using same Apple ID, your messages and information are shared across devices. That is the reason why you are seeing the messages sent by your family members on your macbook. I would advise you to create separate Apple ID for every individual or disable iMessage from their personal devices. So that the device that was disabled ...

You are confusing your iCloud Backup with iCloud Photo Library. iCloud Backup by default makes a copy of your whole iOS device, in case you have a problem with it (you erase something by mistake, it gets stolen, lost, damaged) to be able to restore it to the last available backup. You can selectively remove different data from the backup, that —of course— ...

There is a way to retrieve or recover your restrictions passcode. I just posted a blog post about it here. Simple steps with illustrations and images are included. Hope it helps you!

"synced" can mean differnt things and is slightly ambiguous. However if you "backup" your phone via iCloud or iTunes, then you can restore the backup to another device and your iMessages and SMS texts will have been transfered. More info here: iCloud: iCloud storage and backup overview

This was such a problem for me I actually made a utility called "iCloudStatus" which basically behaves the way Dropbox does by showing a status icon in the menu bar (see below). The other alternative is looking at the Finder but if you're uploading large batches of documents nested deeply in folders like I am then it will be a time consuming experience ...

I saw this error when I added songs directly from the "For You" or "New" tabs in iTunes to a playlist. To fix the error for my playlist I manually added the songs to My Library, then added them to a playlist. I was then able to sync that playlist.

Try the menu item File > Library > Update iCloud Music Library. I had quit iTunes after initially enabling iCloud Music Library in preferences when it was only partially done uploading. To get it going again I used this menu item Update iCloud Music Library, the progress indicator in the upper right appeared and it continued uploading. This was on OS X ...

Check your Restrictions. Go to Settings > General > Restrictions. Enter your passcode. Look under "Allowed Content" for "Music, Podcasts & iTunes U", it should say "Explicit" to the right. If it does not, tap on it and enable it. If everything is greyed out when you arrive at Restrictions, it means they are disabled; I've read people have had ...

There are companies out there, although I can't recommend any that claim to be able to recover data off broken iPhones, I've not tried them, the iPhone doesn't have a hard drive, the whole device is on a single computer circuit board, it's going to destroy the phone trying to get it repaired. Data recovery is expensive, and once your phone has been modified ...

If moving to Android is an option, then you clearly don't need anything that's in the account. So just create a new one and link your device to that account instead. And when you do create a new account, be sure to link a mobile phone number and another email address to it, so that the same thing can't happen again.

What Apple Music iCloud Music Library does is the following: It will check all the tracks you have stored in iTunes and See if they are available in the Apple Music catalog. If not, Apple Music will Upload them to the cloud. All these songs will be available from the Music app on iOS. If you play them, you will stream them from the cloud. If you would ...

What to do when you do not have enough storage because your backup size is too large: Delete the current backup on your iCloud for that specific iOS device. Your iCloud backup is now automatically turned off, so turn it back on. A new backup is made and has a reasonable size. Theoretically your phone could crash in the short while you do not have a ...

There's an option in the menus to force an update of the iCloud Music Library: File > Library > Update iCloud Music Library. This caused a spinner to appear in the upper right-hand corner of iTunes and, once it disappeared, all my formerly-unavailable tracks were now available in my iCloud Music Library for streaming from my other devices. There ...

With Find My Mac enabled, someone who found the computer could sign into the guest user, which could then be located via iCloud. The guest user is a feature of the operating system which allows people to temporarily use your computer but not save any files. You can go into Users&Groups System Preferences and disable it, for more details see this article ...

Is this an enterprise setup? How are the phones being managed? MaaS360, OS X Server, ect? It sounds like the users are connected to the same App Store ID and all have different iCloud accounts they are logged into (or vice versa).

You can, by going to iCloud.com/#photos. Once there: Click 'Select Photos' to go into selection mode Select a photo Shift-click another photo, to select the range between the first selection and your last selection (just like in Windows/OS X, you can use Shift or Cmd/Ctrl to choose exactly what you like). Click 'Download' at the top blue bar.

All you have to do is to change your Apple ID password.

If you have another Apple device, such as an iPad or iPhone, and you deleted iCloud off of it, it can disrupt every device you have, and you will just need to log in again, possibly generating App-Specific Passwords for your Mac. This happened to me around the same time, but I can't remember if it was the result of the upgrade to OS X 10.10.4 that broke the ...
