How do I wipe it clean if I can't remember the pass code to get on the phone? I'm giving my old one to my friend but obviously want to wipe it for her first. We took the SIM card out but everything is still on the actual phone too.

Apple apparently fixed this with an update: The latest Airport Base Station Update 7.6.1 "provides support for remote access to an AirPort disk or a Time Capsule hard drive with an iCloud account." Yes, this is a 3 year old question. An easy solution to access a remote Time Capsule. (Maybe even a remote Airport Base Station - I couldn't test this.) ...

Since iCloud is based on CalDAV, this shouldn’t be too hard. Deleting an event boils down to a simple HTTP request, e.g.: DELETE /calendars/johndoe/home/132456762153245.ics HTTP/1.1 If-Match: "2134-314" This project on GitHub could serve as a good starting point: jcs/iclouddav

I think you are looking for either of the following files: /System/Library/PreferencePanes/iCloudPref.prefPane/Contents/Resources/iCloud.icns /System/Library/CoreServices/Finder/Contents/Resources/iCloudNoDocs@2x.png Without clarification I can only guess what you want but I think I figured out that you want the folder icons shown within iCloud Drive. ...

iCloud Drive directory is located here: ~/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs There are some other directories listed inside Mobile Documents, their names depend on the app which owns them. For example: com~apple~Pages/.

iCloud could be slow in restoring especially if you have lots of app data and your WiFi is not Speedy Gonzalez. I have some bad experience restoring with iCloud as my Photos app and Spotify app are both more than 5 GB each. There is absolutely no way to let iCloud take over from where it left. You need to do the restore anew. I'd suggest, the next time ...

I agree the easiest path is to reset with "Erase Content and Settings". In my experience, restore what you can with iTunes first, i.e. update all your iOS apps in iTunes so the phone doesn't also have to update apps later after restore. After the iOS reset, try skipping the initial iCloud account and password prompts. After you restore your local settings ...

Best way to hook up a network drive is to add a network drive that get's its own IP address. Adding a USB drive to an airport extreme is not good because it's not reliable. Tends to disconnect, and then to reconnect you have to reboot the airport and the usb disc. Not worth it.

My iPad had the same problem in November. The only way I was able to fix it was to delete the most resent iCloud backup(s) from/for the troubled device until it I could complete a manual iCloud back. As a precaution create a local back up on your computer before deleting iCloud backups(s).

Unfortunately, I don't know if there is a way to do it through the UI. Good news, though, is that this is stored in ~/Library/Preferences/.GlobalPreferences.plist.

Heres where things get a little tricky. Dropbox isn't an app tailored to your needs. It wasn't designed to edit PDF's or files, although, it can view them and that functionality can one day exist, but it's intent as a business is to offer customers a place to store their documents that can be accesabile across all their devices. With Apple, and developing ...

If you already connected to a Wifi, then go to Settings > Wi-Fi and tap on Forget This Network. This worked for me.

Just a follow-up on this. I wouldn't say that I have fixed the problem, but closing and opening the Notes app seems to enable syncing again. It continues to stop syncing automatically, however. I am not sure if this happens after wakening the Mac up from sleep, which I do a lot. Nevertheless, restarting the app seems to work so far. Also, make sure that you ...

I suggest you to go to Mail.app → View → Message → All Headers and analyze that headers. If appears any server not related to iCloud, then copy the content of Mail.app → View → Message → Raw Source window and report in spamcop.net.

I take it the core of your question is how to securely delete an email which you received via an IMAP email account, and read using your local Mac OS X ''Mail'' application. You ask other interesting questions along the way, to which I'll give only brief answers. First, it's important to understand the IMAP account, and how it affects deleting messages. ...

iCloud isn't for keeping photos permanently. Bring them into iPhoto [Mac] or Photo Gallery [part of MS Essentials, Windows] for permanent storage. After transfer you will get the choice to delete the copies on your phone.

I was following along because I had the same iMessage problem and just today I finally got it to work. I logged out of messages and iCloud and all my Macs, both virtual and physical machines. I think it was a VM I last logged out of that got things going going again.

Turning off icloud photo's will not delete the photo's in your camara roll because the photos located in that folder are taken by your device. When turning off icloud photo's, you will get a message that you are going to delete the icloud photo's on your device. The photo's will still remain in 'the cloud'.

If you turn off iCloud Photo stream on the device, Photo stream, and the images in the stream folder, are removed from the device, BUT NOT FROM iCloud. If you have any other devices using iCloud photo stream, they will not be impacted. You can also delete from photo stream, just like any folder. If you have a Mac, I strongly suggest that you use iPhoto, and ...

Yes. When you turn off the Photo Stream option in iCloud, it will prompt you saying your Photo Stream content will be deleted.

Transferring notes from one Apple-ID to another is quite difficult on iOS, because when you logout from one account all the notes in iCloud disappear locally, dissimilar to the contacts. so I recommend you to do this job on your Mac, it's so easy. I assume your notes sync with iCloud on your OS X machine. Open note app, login your original iCloud ID if you ...

This is not entirely true. If you do not remove your iCloud account from your old device, it will remain with that device. Our company sold our fleet of Mac Air's and a few had iCloud set up. These machines were all wiped and re-imaged, then sold. The new users never set up iCloud so that account is blank. HOWEVER, we still had access to those sold machines ...

The data returned from Backblaze ought to be correctly recognised by the Mac. Folders like iPhoto have a special structure that the Mac shows you as a single file, but in reality it is just a folder. In the same way, Applications are, in fact, folders too - but the Mac hides the structure from you by default. This is what your iPhoto Library looks like on ...

Before you do anything to the old phone, have him set up his new one and log into his iCloud account on it. To answer your question, yes. When you remove his iCloud account from his old iPhone, everything will still be on his new phone. When you remove his iCloud account, you are not "deleting" the account itself, just the copies of his content (apps, ...

You can delete the apps from your local iTunes, but they will show in your 'Purchased' view. If you don't want to see them any longer, you can simply right click and choose 'Hide'. They won't show in your Purchased view.

This will not be possible. You will see an cloud icon when you previously "purchased" an app. This will notify you that you could download the app withous any costs. It is not possible to delete those apps from your apple is. If you don't want to see the cloud icon, you could sign out from the appstore via settings > iTunes & App Store > sign out. This ...

While your Apple ID is in the form of an email address, that email address does not need to be used for anything associated with the Apple ID. Your primary email address, for contact with Apple, does NOT need to be the same as your Apple ID, it can be anything. In otherwords, you can have an Apple ID that is somebody@icloud.com but use the primary email ...

I thought I would add that I found I could simply add a return to the end of each note in iPhone that was not showing up on my Mac and it automatically synced the note the the Mac. Not sure why it worked but it was easier than copy and pasting every note.

Why not set up the new phone first. Once that's done and your son has verified all the games and apps and settings are correct. Erase all content and settings on the old phone (under general in the settings app - go to the bottom where it says reset). That way, you can set up the "old" phone with only the accounts you care about.

If you go to https://appleid.apple.com and log in - pay attention to see if you get a message like "This Apple ID has been disabled for security reasons". If not, you can ignore all the emails and just make sure you know your security questions (perhaps choosing new ones if someone is trying to guess your account). If so, your account is locked. There are ...

The problem lies in the Mail - List view - with Preview Window. Unfortunately as soon you look at the mail (without actually opening it), the Mail will mark it as viewed (since you did see it in the preview window). The only way to keep email as not red till you actually click to open, is to remove the Preview window in the List view. To do that just ...

Just managed to change mine on my iPhone by changing the contact information in contacts - I share an iCloud email with my husband and all my messages sent from my iPhone came from him.

Your messages are not gone. Apple Mail is not displaying the Exchange or G-mail inbox properly. I tested this with 2 systems: 1 on Mavericks and 1 on Yosemite.

This is not possible using a single Apple ID. If you wish to share the location of each device specifically, you will need to use a unique Apple ID on each device.

I had the same issue with syncing notes. The copy paste method worked perfectly I opened the iPhone note that I wanted to appear on my macbook, copied the note, went back into the iCloud note folder, opened a new blank note in the iCloud note folder, pasted the data (previously copied from iPhone note) into a new note. It appeared in the cloud note folder on ...

It's a bit difficult to diagnose this with the info you've given but from experience I've found that you are able to reliably "force an sync" with any sort of iCloud data by going to System Preferences and signing out + signing back in (it'll warn you about removing iCloud data from the device, etc.) As said in the previous answer, make sure you are ...

FWIW I fixed mine when I realised I'd probably downloaded iPhoto using an AppleID from the App Store but logged into iCloud with a different AppleID. I deleted iPhoto and it's related files (but not the iPhoto Library) using CleanApp, entered the App Store with my usual AppleID and downloaded iPhoto again. Once the App Store, the downloaded iPhoto and iCloud ...

I had this same problem. I realized that my iPhone 5 would not complete restoring because I had several songs on my phone that I had downloaded from someone else's computer. My phone asked me to put in the password for their Itunes email (I was confused why) and I hit cancel. So... I went to iTunes and deleted the songs that were gray, I reset the phone ...
