Two options: 1) Get the person you lent it to to enter their password and disable their account on your device. 2) Bring proof of ownership (sales receipt) and your device to an Apple Store and talk with a Genius. They will be able to reset the device for you.

Of course, in the future, you could just temporarily change your wifi back to the old settings that match the iPad, allow it to connect, and then when complete, change your wifi back to the new settings.

I found a (much less than satisfactory) solution to the problem. There is a slight delay between when pressing "cancel" on the iCloud password prompt and when the next popup opens. I was able to navigate to the WiFi settings, and after a lot of frustration, was able to connect to my new wireless network. After doing so, the prompt accepted my updated ...

No. This is not yet possible. Use dropbox or something similar instead. You can ask for new features via: http://www.apple.com/feedback

No, not without the original password No, but you can sign into your icloud account from a different device and track the computer

No API. No protocol. But there are three workarounds I can think of. The first is to use your mac and copy the following files manually (or rsync in combination with cron or something else you like). Mail data and settings ~/Library/Mail/V2 Contacts data and settings ~/Library/Application Support/AddressBook Calendar data and settings ~/Library/Calendars/ ...

Your device is most likely Activation Locked. In order to remove the previous owner's Apple ID, you should try to get in contact with them and arrange to have them remove their ID from the device. Activation Lock is an anti-theft feature, so if you do a factory restore in iTunes, you will be prompted for the previous owners Apple ID password when the device ...

As it turned out, Apple does not provide an option to auto sync/copy previously created notes for Notes app to iCloud in order to sync to other iDevice. From this doc: "In Notes on your iOS device or Mac, verify that your notes are not stored in a local folder. Example: On My iPhone or On My Mac. If you have notes in these folders, you will need to copy or ...

I've encountered a similar error on my iPhone 4S while restoring an iCloud backup. I fixed it by simply updating the firmware/iOS version to the latest version available from Apple. Latest iOS 7.1.2 was out at that time but I was running outdated iOS 7.0.4. Once the phone restored with the latest iOS version, I was able to restore from iCloud. So update your ...

You could always export your bookmarks into an html file. I do this from time to time. Simply go to the File Menu and select "Export Bookmarks". Under the file menu there is also an Import Bookmarks in case your bookmarks were ever lost.

Apple provides a web interface, so you can log in to https://icloud.com and see which notes are syncing. Then once you are logged in, go to one of the devices and sign out and back in with the same Apple ID. Check that the date is correct on the device before signing back in. At that point, go to the settings app and ensure notes are synced for iCloud. ...

Lio is definitely right first of all you should check your iphones imei code (*#06#), using such free sites as Public iPhone Network Checker for Apple iPhone. So you will be able to get your iphones iCloud status.

It sounds like you have successfully set up iTunes Match (click for more info). It is used to store your music in the cloud, so you don't have to worry about storage space on your phone for listening to music, while connected to the internet. It also offers you the option to download the music (while you have Wi-Fi), so you can listen to it later when you ...

The answer is: First the phone checks the sim and only then the iCloud lock status. So without the cariet sim you cannot be sure that the phone is not iCloud locked. There are some free websites (like http://iphoneimei.info/) that preform iCloud status and there are very reliable. All you need is the imei number witch is available at the HELLO screen (the ...

Photos on your phone from before iCloud was activated can't be easily moved to the main photo stream. (Apple desires that you activate iCloud when you get the iPhone. They assume that's what everyone will do.) There are solutions however. You can use a shared photo stream. You can sync your phone to a Mac and use iPhoto to sync them through photo streams. ...

Given that this question is a few months old, you may have already found an answer, but I figured I'd provide one in case anyone else comes to this post looking for an answer to the same question. While I don't know of a way to add photos from the Camera Roll to the "main" photo stream retroactively, you can add pictures to shared photo streams. Those will ...

Your best bet is that iCloud can only show one device at a time. What you could try to do, however, is link the two iOS devices together via Bluetooth. That might sync the tabs between the two and list both of their tabs. If not, than iCloud is a one-at-a-time thing.

If you have Windows Phone 8 you can set up iTunes on your phone and try to access your photos on iCloud. It might not work but it is worth trying. Follow instructions here how to: Then try this to get the Photos moved over to the sky-drive. iCloud Photostream sync with Windows Phone.

If you used iCloud backup, you can restore your previous phone's backup to your new phone by resetting the new phone's Content and Settings in Settings → Reset. iMessages are separate to SMS/MMS and will be restored when you log in with your Apple ID into iCloud. Both of these are separate from your mobile number. iCloud does not store SMS/MSS messages like ...

What this basically is telling you is that you have already used 3 Apple ID's on the iPad (must be some pretty shifty owner before you) so you cannot add anymore to it. Its done. Even wiping it will not solve the problem as Apple must be very tight with their security and with 3 id's being the limit as said before me, for not allowing unlimited storage. ...

Any device (whether iOS or OS X) has a lifetime limit of THREE (3) new iCloud accounts can be activated using it. Once the third iCloud accounts has been activated from that device, that device cannot be used any longer to create/activate new iCloud accounts. Apple allows the primary and the secondary account, after third they do this to you: There is ...

iCloud is so wierd and hardly usable that the best option would be just to connect your phone to the MacBook and upload it that way.

Macs do not have Activation Lock. The only Find My iPhone lock that is present on OS X is the force lock from selecting the device in the Find My iPhone device list and clicking Lock. Simply reinstalling OS X can't lock a Mac unlike iOS Activation Lock. Note that Find My Mac will register the serial number (or other hardware identifier) for the purposes of ...

Managed to confirm this with a few admins in NZ/Aus. The Show Holiday Calendar is on and for users in NZ there doesn't seem to be a NZ Holiday calendar so we are getting results such as Hong Kong, Canada and Mexico... Users in Australia are seeing the correct Australia Holidays calendar. However we aren't exactly sure what triggered the calendars to show ...

I would connect to a fast WiFi and re-enable iCloud. The WiFi will drain the battery far less than the cellular modem for transferring 1 GB of data since it will finish much faster in most cases. Also, you might need to plug into power to let however much data you have sync. Some big items you can turn off temporarily are: iCloud Photo Stream iCloud ...

Two days ago, I want to extract only a part of iCloud photos, not all the all iCloud backup. Fortunately, I find the hack software which can manage from iCloud backup.

I had some kind of similar question here. I decided to go my own route, because basically everything from big companies is specific to their environment. And even though it required some work, I ended up with a solution I am quite happy with. I have a Mac Server and a DynDNS service. I have a Madsonic Instance running, which is a fork of Subsonic. ...

iMessages are stored in the iMessage service on your Apple ID. They are completely separate from iCloud. Turning on iMessage will store your messages on Apple's servers, regardless of iCloud setting. Deleting an iMessage deletes it from all your devices.

  1. See which apps are still linked to my no longer used Apple IDs Whilst there's no 'list' of these apps, you should be able to notice apps which haven't been restored to the device, as these will be apps purchased with those Apple IDs. If you're watching the device being restored, you may notice such apps move straight from Waiting… to ...

When deleting the app, you are prompted if you want to remove the app data from Game Center. Choosing Remove will remove this data and subsequently reinstalling the app will start a fresh container for the app data.

First of all, if you ever participate in iTunes' free singles, those will obviously count as iTunes tracks. (It used to be called Single of the Week, I believe, but now it's found just under "Free on iTunes" on the Mac/PC versions of iTunes.) By the same token, participating in any of those promotions - 12 Days of Christmas, iTunes Festival, etc. where ...

There is no general answer to this question as each game app is highly specific with regards to where the game progress is stored. On some games such as Candy Crush, the score is stored locally on the iPhone unless you connect to Facebook at which point, the game progress is automatically transferred and saved to a cloud account associated with your Facebook ...

Yes, the contacts remain in iCloud. However, once you reset the iPhone to factory settings, the iPhone is no longer logged in to your iCloud account which means that there are no contacts appearing on the iPhone whatsoever. You can further log in to your iCloud account on your computer via a web browser (icloud.com) and erase the contacts from there if you ...
