It is secure to keep it linked to her iCloud. It will remain Activation Locked, which makes it unusable. The data is not at risk because you've deleted it from the device, remotely.

No. You'd have to set up your iCloud account on their devices as the main account to use for pics, find my iPhone, backups, etc, and then set up their iCloud account as a secondary for email, notes, mail, and iMessage and FaceTime. Unfortunately that's the only way.

Using a Apple ID along with Find my iPhone it could have been located if it set up with a iCloud account. If the device was not set up with an iCloud account, the only recourse is to keep calling it in the hopes some honest person will answer. However, there is no way to track it without the Apple ID. Requirements As of January 2013, the service ...

Short answer, you cannot change it on the fly on a per entry basis. You have to set the default account in the preferences for contacts.app. However, when in Contacts, and you have a card open (perhaps the one you JUST made), pressing the OPTION key will highlight all the groups on the left side of the app that include this card. When you have your list of ...

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 ...

You can create individual iCloud IDs and keep the old ID as store ID, common for every user. That way you won't have to purchase everything again and still the data within your apps will remain different as your iCloud IDs are different. Optionally, you can just create two more IDs and use family sharing with the first ID to share all your purchased ...

Go to Settings > General > Usage > Manage Storage (iCloud) and delete the backup for your old phone. The new phone will overwrite it own backups, just like the old phone did. It won't overwrite the backup for another device (I.e your old phone).

I'm afraid since the device is removed from Find my iPhone app you can no longer make changes from iCloud.com. If you would be able to start the device again - sometimes you doesn't even need to go all the way as fully booted system - it will reappear in the Find my iPhone app. I work in a retail chain as a service agent and have seen this many times. ...

No, there is absolutely no way to bypass the iCloud lock. Usually the only reason it's on is because the iPod was stolen, that's really the whole point of iCloud lock---even if a thief stole your Apple product, he wouldn't be able to get your data off of it and he wouldn't be able to use it after stealing it. DO NOT buy one as it would be about a useful as ...

First, you will have to update to Photos app on OS X, as iPhoto is not compatible with iCloud Photo Library. Activate iCloud Photo Library and subscribe a storage plan that accommodates your pictures and anything else you have there (iOS Backups, for instance). Select the "Optimize Mac Storage" on the Photos app Preferences > iCloud pane. Then import ...

Stars on Gmail are flags on Mail app. You can go ahead and remove the flags if you wish; the Flagged folder is a smart folder and removing the flags or stars will empty it. Or you can just leave them there, it depends on what you used Stars for. I wouldn't delete them though; while usually items in folders are just tags in Gmail, I'm not sure if deleting ...

Yes - the windows client is out and works well in my limited experience with it. Install from http://www.icloud.com/icloudcontrolpanel and the setup guide is at https://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/pc.html

Most of the answers talk about selecting music in iTunes and then clicking "Download" on the menu. It appears that, in the newest version of iTunes (Aug. 2015), this action has been renamed "Make Available Offline".

To see the different groups, go to Contacts, at the very top you will see Groups, just tick iCloud and untick the rest. Now scroll down to the bottom and see if you have 500 contacts or 203. If you have 203, it means that all your ...

It's likely Apple can support you with iCloud if your account has a problem. Before calling them, though you will want to check and see under the Settings app what you have configured under Mail, Contacts, Calendars. It's entirely likely your iCloud contacts are exactly what https://www.icloud.com/#contacts shows. Make a backup of the phone to a computer ...

I am also having this problem, and I also live in RO. I have reported a bug to Apple, they asked me to install some certificates and send them logs after i was trying to activate that switch. But that was like a week or two before making 8.4.1 update so i kinda starting lose hope. Reply them back and no response since then. It might be a problem in this ...

If you didn't back up the photos, they're gone, sadly. If you connected the iPod to the computer, iTunes may have backed them up without you realizing it, So check there first. If you enabled iPod backups, you can send iPod on any other device and manage the storage to see if the iPod has a backup. If so, you can restore that back up on to pretty much any ...

Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > (contacts section) Default Account. (Note default account also exists in the "Calendars" section.) I personally wish Apple would let you set which group, on the fly, as you save the contact, but sadly we can only change the "default".
