Welcome to my world. I had same problem and ended up killing the Notes in iCould. Before that I moved my precious notes to "on my mac" at least the ones that were still there. No more iCloud stealing my notes.

Apple recommends: Just sign in at iCloud.com or use the Find My iPhone app to see your missing iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or Mac on a map. And with the Lost Mode feature you don’t just see where your device is, you can track where it’s been. That way you can decide on your best course of action. You can immediately lock your device and send it a message ...

The only way to locate it is via find my mac. When it is a personal mac my advice is to lock it in iCloud. When the mac is used for business, best thing to do is to erase the mac.

Speaking of transferring contacts from Mac to iPhone, the users will think it is every easy to be done. If the users have saved contacts in the address book on Mac computer, or in emails, they are able to import the contacts from the address book to their iPhone directly. If the users don’t save contacts in the address book, and want to transfer contacts ...

From what I've seen from Apps like Notes, Numbers, and Pages... They're now acting as usual apps which looks for "filesystem" files. i.e. something on the local drive. When you fire up an iCloud enabled app, then need to open a document, in your Favourites is "iCloud Drive" and now things are stored under there, under folders which correspond to their apps ...

If you do not have the password for an iCloud account, and also do not have the means to reset it via appleid.apple.com page, then you can't do anything with that iCloud account. Also, it seems you have a couple of issues: iTunes not recognising your iPhone? PD: Why would you want to backup everything to an iCloud account you can no longer access?

The issue is with the Apple ID used to activate the iCloud Service. An Apple ID is simply an email address that you sign into Apple with and, by extension, use set up Apple’s auxilary services (iCloud, iTunes Store Purchases, etc). Is there a way to delete that old account? Apple usually won’t let you delete an old Apple ID. You need to contact Apple ...

First step, turn off FindMyiPhone if it's on. (you don't have to but it will be easier) then go to appleid.apple.com and click "Manage Apple Id". Now go back to the iPhone and change the login's for iCloud, iTunes and Appstore, Facetime, Messages and Game Center. Turn find my iPhone back on anytime after you change the iCloud login.

In order to fit within the 5GB limit for the iCloud backup, you need to have the used space on your device be less than 5GB. Technically, Apps don't count against this, although their documents/data does. There are other items that don't count, as well, you can read more about iCloud backups here. You stated that your iPod had 5GB available, but the space ...

We've had a couple of machines at work in a similar state, they were brought back to normal operation by starting in safe boot then moving the Containers folder from the user's Library folder to the desktop. This has the effect of clearing the startup caches, performing a disk check and resetting sandboxed applications back their default settings. A new ...

You could call apple care to turn off icloud for you. This would take a couple of hours to accomplish so I suggest you accept the T&C and than log out from icloud via 'settings > icloud' like @Buscar said.


5

Since you had the iCloud turned on initially, you will have to accept the T&C anyway. You have a iCloud account! Turning it off now is to late since you used the product already.

Try under Settings > iCloud > Sign Out at the bottom of the page. You shouldn't be prompted for a password again until you sign in under the same menu. Edit 1 Not sure whether that's exactly what you meant, but I cannot seem to recall Apple asking for a log in when no data is entered under the iCloud tab.

Had the same issue with Yosemite. iMac14,2 / 3.5GHz Intel Quad Core i7/ 8G RAM / OSX10.10 / 3TB Fusion HD cloudd.app continued to quit and I would get notifications of its quit. Boot into SafeMode. Rebooted back into my adm. account. I get no more cloudd.app quits.

I was having the same problem, but what I did, after restoring/reseting my iPhone, deleting iCloud backups, etc, was trying to backup in a different network, and worked just fine. In the end, it was my router that was causing trouble. What I did was simply disable IPv6 internet connection. It worked, and fast!

No, I don't believe this can be done. This is how the service works - copies of everything in the drive is copied to all devices that have the drive enabled. You can choose to disable iCloud drive entirely, but you can't pick and choose what files arrive on which device. Other cloud storage service like Dropbox and Google Drive behave in this way as well.

You can actually enter any information as your answers. Moreover, this is better option actually as it adds security against people who may know or guess your answers. The only important thing is to remember this information or at least keep it safely. You'll need it in case of any problems with access to your iCloud account either to restore by yourself or ...

From a security standpoint I always recommend that people DO NOT answer these questions with truthful answers. Instead I advise using random strings of text because then it is much more difficult for individuals to hijack your account even if they know you personally.

I had that exact problem and only thought every last thing had been downloaded. However when I went to iTunes on my phone, some songs had not downloaded. When I tapped them, it started the download and as soon as that was done, the message went away and my phone is now able to be backed up to the iCloud once more.

They don't have to be the same. Sign out of iCloud in Settings and set up the new Apple ID. Then, if that Apple ID's also been applied to the stores, go to one of them, sign out, and sign back in with your store Apple ID. Source: My own experience - my iPod Touch works fine with my own Apple ID for iCloud and my family's Apple ID for the stores.

I don't know exactly what happened, but the box comes and goes. I set the Archive box in the favorite toolbar so that I can bring it up when it's not showing itself.

well, the easiest way is to simply e-mail the photos to yourself. once in your inbox simply save them to your camera roll and thus your photo stream. yes you'll have duplicates in your camera roll but that is easily remedied by deleting the "original" version of the photo.

You've tagged that you're running Snow Leopard so no, not really. iCloud was introduced with OS X Lion (which is no longer available) and unless you upgrade to the maximum RAM for your system (Apple lists it as 4GB), I wouldn't recommend updating to OS X Yosemite just yet. However, you should still be able to access iCloud from the website through Safari to ...

Did you happen to switch iCloud Photo Library on for your iPad? That could prevent proper synching of your devices as it's an iOS 8 feature and therefore wouldn't be supported on your iPhone. Additionally, have you tried logging out of iCloud on the iPhone, rebooting the phone, then logging back in?

Apple's procedure on how to tell if a device is free from activation lock is posted pubicly: http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201365 There are steps you can take on the device, but I prefer the web interface: https://www.icloud.com/activationlock/ The steps to remove a device from the previous owner is here: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS4515 It doesn't ...

Try restoring ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.Notes (I would keep a copy of the existing folder in case this causes other problems). That's where my Notes seem to be stored. If that doesn't work, you can dig out the individual files representing your Notes within that folder. The directory structure of the com.apple.Notes folder is very odd. It seems to have ...

I use Textastic for basic coding on my iPad but it is also available for iPhone. However, it is $8.99 so you will have to judge if it is worth it. Most coding apps will work with straight text files without altering them with formatting. I also see one called Fast Keyboard on the iTunes store that is free if you just need to edit a text file once in a while ...

Yes, symlinks work fine with iCloud. I have been using them since before the introduction of iCloud Drive using manual manipulation of the Mobile Documents folder and developer.apple.com, and this still works since the introduction of iCloud Drive.

On a Mac, in the reply message, notice that the From: line has the down-pointing triangle that indicates that it's a menu. Clicking on it reveals a menu of all the email addresses you have configured. Select the one you want. The response will be sent through the SMTP server you have associated with the account corresponding to that email address. On the ...

That depends on the web site you are on and they email services. In most cases it is not possible to use it as regular email account. You receive emails true they service and then you can replay, but not initiate new email since you do not own the email server.

Those files should be copied across to iCloud drive with one caveat, you will no longer be able to access them with any devices using the old iCloud system. It is a one way update. Here is a FAQ from Apple with more info. http://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201104

Yes you can do this. Changing the appleID for Settings > iCloud will not effect the iTunes store login which can be changed at Settings > iTunes and App Store. In addition to those two. Messages, Facetime, and Game Center and possibly Mail, Contacts and Calenders could all be configured with different appleId's. Specifically, on your wifes phone, ...

iOS If you're using iOS 8, go to Settings > iCloud > Storage. If you're using an earlier version of iOS, go to Settings > iCloud > Storage & Backup Tap Buy More Storage or Change Storage Plan. Choose an upgrade, then tap Buy and enter your Apple ID password. Simply purchase additional storage that suits your needs.

Nope it really doesn't work period. I've spent so many hours trying to sort this out with my own collection. No matter what I do itunes keeps trying to download long dead and dormant episodes I do not want or need. I have marked them as played. I have marked them so that they are not saved podcasts. I have deleted the feeds. I have performed the ...

It is even easier: any folder that you have (created), just drag it to the sidebar: it will stay where it is, and appears in the sidebar. When you right click it in the sidebar you can remove it (the folder stays where it is).

A solution is to create a temporary alias of your new folder. Create a folder in iCloud Drive. Right-click the folder and select Make Alias. Drag-and-drop the alias folder (little black arrow on folder symbol) into your sidebar. You can now delete the alias folder (NOT in the sidebar). Hope this helps, if not leave a comment.

Thank you so much for the background on this issue, EightQUarterBit. On the other hand I didn't really want to lose all my sidebar shortcuts and folders (of which I have many) so I opted to dig a little deeper into the plist file and opted to edit out the problem instead of deleting the entire plist file. I deleted all the plist settings covering tags for ...

It's possible to get notes out from the device itself using a idevice explorer such as iTools or iFunbox, but with some research the tutorials and questions for "where's the notes stored on my idevice" is outdated and doesn't work with iOS 8 ~~~ So, doing it manually, I recommend hooking up your iCloud to the notes, (which you've already done) and load it ...

I have an iPhone 5S and logged into icloud.com (via Windows) and couldn't see my updates from my phone. To resolve this, within icloud.com I selected icloud settings from the top right menu and Advanced > Data Security and select Sign out of all browsers. Once I logged back in online and on my phone the updates appeared. Genuis ;-) !!!

Hopefully this helps people in the future, it's ok to delete it locally from your Mac and it won't affect your iOS devices. Backup everything to iCloud and redownload from Apple Store. You can even do the same with iMovie and GarageBand (two apps I really don't use but take a bunch of space on my Mac Air 120GB). Directly copied from iTunes below. Are ...

Unfortunately, it is likely that your nephew temporarily used someone else's Apple ID in order to gain access to purchases that the other user had made. My son did this on his device, against my rules. If this happened, then that other person may have initiated the lock. Since you have an invoice, proving ownership and the device is only a month old, I ...

Actually it does work: Just sync as usual between your Mac and your iPhone (make sure to check the podcasts you want to sync as you would do with playlists and songs). Then open your Podcast app on your iPhone and choose the Podcast you want to listen to. On the second screen you'll have 3 options available: Unplayed Feed Saved All the ...
