I don't know whether WhatsApp stores its data in a cloud, but I know that you can have Apple's iCloud backing up your "chat history". Go to WhatsApp Settings > Chat Settings > Chat backup, to turn it off, or configure it for daily/weekly/monthly. If you turn it off, and then clear offending data from the WhatsApp app, then that should remove* it from iCloud. ...

Launch Activity Monitor (in /Applications/Utilities) and look for a process named "com.apple.preferences.icloud.remoteservice". Select it, click the little stop sign with the x inside it, and select "force Quit".

You change the Apple ID and password as described in App Store. After that you delete old Apps whichever software you want to update. If you attempt to update old apps, it will ask for the password to the old Apple ID. Therefore, after deleting the old apps, you need to go to the App Store search and download the software again using the new Apple ID where ...

If your phone has activation lock, you will have to get control of the old Apple ID to remove the account. The device should keep working, but you won't be able to sign in with the new account until the old is under your control.

Sign into iCloud.com with the same iCloud ID registered on the phone. One of the "apps" in iCloud.com should be "Find my iPhone."

Go to icloud.com/#find and log in. No download is necessary and your device should be located on a map and allow you to lock/erase/etc.

Why not take the last 9 years of calendar entries, export them as an iCal Archive, then create a new calendar, import those entries, but do not sync to iCal. You can then delete those entries from your daily calendar, while maintaining history in your archive calendar. You can sync this archive calendar to your iPhone via iTunes, rather than iCloud. Of ...

Apparently this is how it GTA operates. Both Vice City and San Andreas iOS version of it. I've always wondered whether the game keeps some of the game save data in Game Center, iCloud or to a app-native cloud system.

Deleting photos from the Camera Roll has no effect on photos already in your PhotoStream and vice-versa. Photo Stream is temporary so if you don't access your PhotoStream on your computer where the photos can be saved locally on your computer (there is an option to do this automatically with iPhoto on a Mac), you should import the phtoos from the Camera ...

If you remove them from your Camera Roll and don't delete them in your PhotoStream they will remain on iCloud.

Ok – think I've sorted it. I had to remove the email address from the Manage your Apple ID: https://appleid.apple.com/signin The email alias had become an Alternate Email address. Deleting it there removed it from iMessages after signing out and then back in.

If your iPhone is stolen and has FindMyiPhone turned on the thief would need your iCloud password in order to disable it.

Open the iCloud preference pane on your Mac to get the easiest way I've found to manage the storage. Click the Manage... button in the lower right. This will calculate all the storage users counting against your quota and offer you details on how to clean up each category. Once you've reviewed each bin - you can decide to delete or if you would rather ...

Photo Stream does not consume space in your iCloud account so deleting photos from Photo Stream will have no benefit. To reclaim space, delete data from other services such as Documents and Data, Mail, and iCloud backup.

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, 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.


1

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.

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.

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.

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 ...
