I had a similar issue trying to free up space on my iPhone. At first I thought it was the trick Apple uses to force you to download and update the iOS. But it's not. It's the crappy storage on a 16G iPhone. My first recommendation is to upgrade the phone to a larger capacity iPhone, but if that's not an option (i.e. tight budget and/or company phone) ...

Try looking in Settings app > Safari > Passwords & Autofill > Saved Passwords. It might be there. Alternatively, if you, or your wife, uses a Mac, you should be able use the Keychain Access app (In Applications > Utilities), if your wife's iCloud account is logged in on said Mac as well. Just search for "Yahoo" in the search box. If it's not in any ...

Here's a way that works effectively, but can be time consuming, so just warning all you guys. First, you go to iCloud.com and sign in. Go to your Contacts, and select all of them by pressing Ctrl + A. Then, you press that little gear button in the lower left-hand corner and click Export vCard. Now that you've downloaded your vCard file with all your ...

This is what finally worked for me. Create a new playlist, and copy all songs from the problem playlist In playlist, remove all downloads. I did this by highlighting all songs, clicking on ..., and selecting 'remove download'. This make the download from iCloud icon appear next to all the songs Then I had to go through and click each song to get it to ...

Try logging out from iCloud and logging back in. Sometimes Apple Music has issues detecting the Music account.

I was suffering from the same messages/issues as you? My iCloud back up contained all the apps that I have ever installed. I turned off the ones that had no importance to save and checked my storage, it showed that I had 4.5kb!

Go to iCloud.com. Sign in with your Apple ID. Click the gear icon labeled Settings. Scroll to the bottom, where you will find 'Restore my Files","Restore my Contacts", and "Restore my Calendars and Reminders". Under each of these 'Restore' items, you will see what is saved on iCloud. You can not download it, only Restore this info to your device. So, this ...

To summarize what you should do in one single answer: Change the rescue email associated with the account. You can do this by going to https://appleid.apple.com/ and clicking on Manage My Apple ID, logging in, and then making sure all the email addresses listed in Name, ID and Email Addresses section of your account are email addresses that only you have ...

The best thing to do would reset your password immediately. Unless he has access to your email account, too, he will be unable to see or get the new password, just use any other account than the iCloud email associated with your iCloud account. So, change the password as soon as you can.

Is this the first time you've tried to access your account through iCloud's App on windows? I also had a similar issue with Windows 8.1 a week ago. The way I managed to solve this problem was uninstalling the iCloud from my computer, restarting, and reinstalling back the application. Here is the Apple Support Guide for Setting up iCloud on Windows.

Solved! It turns out in this situation the "incorrect password" error is really "can't connect to iCloud server to determine if password is valid" error. After enabling WiFi, establishing a connection to local router, verifying internet was indeed available, login is possible.

For #1, one thing to remember is your iCloud account is different from your iTunes/App Store account. You should not lose any of your iCloud documents because that is stored in the iCloud account. Apple's support page describes the procedure here and you should be able to change it back if you like at a later point. But basically, when you change stores, ...

I'm afraid I've got the same problem. I restarted the Imac yesterday. The close down took more than 3 minutes. This happend before. I forced the closing down by pressing the power button. After normal start up I could not start iTunes anymore. All other apps function properly. The desktop shifts left and a black screen appears. I can operate the dock and ...

If you already took notes locally on your iPad or iPhone prior to enabling iCloud note sync, there is not much you can do to push these notes to iCloud once you enable iCloud note sync. I believe that there are some paid apps for Windows that can do the trick all at once but not sure if it would not just be better to copy the notes one by one.

If you have only an iCloud account, it is probable that the contacts that don't appear there are local i.e. On your phone only. To upload them, do the following: Go to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars Select your iCloud account Find the "Contacts" switch and turn it off; it will ask if you want to keep the contacts on your phone or delete them ...

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 ...

Contacts app have groups of contacts, ie. Google contacts, Hotmail contacts, Facebook contacts and then iCloud contacts. 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 ...

I don't believe this is possible as of Yosemite 10.10.5. The sharing menu would be a sensible place for this, but it doesn't have an option to send or copy a link to the file, choosing Mail or Messages will attach the full file: Personally I use Dragshare to quickly get a remote link to a file, or if you save your files to Dropbox you can just alt-click ...

If you go to the folder that the backup was made there is a list of different coded long numbered folders there, use the list of the available iphone backups to determine the backup you want to restore. Inside that folder there will be an info.plist file open it with a text editor. It will have the version of the IPSW in that file. Search for "Product ...

You may be able to access individual iCloud files if you have a Mac. I've done this (admittedly not recently though). There are instructions here: http://www.macworld.com/article/2310807/how-to-access-icloud-files-from-your-mac.html

Try using Safari. I'm guessing you're trying to export using Chrome, which doesn't seem to work. Once downloaded, it will immediately try to add to your Mac Contacts, which you will need to cancel.

Apple has provided detailed steps about how to restore files from iCloud on this page, you should have a look. https://support.apple.com/kb/ph12521?locale=en_US

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 ...

Contact Apple Support. Usually when you create an Apple ID, you supply a credit card #, an address, phone number, etc, all of which can be used to verify your identity. Worth a shot.

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.

I don't know much about the software, but it seems like Contacts Journal may do what you're looking for, with two caveats: new contacts entered in Contacts.app are not automatically imported into Contacts Journal, but it will automatically prompt you to do so, and thereafter keep the contacts sync'd contacts added directly in Contacts Journal will not ...

Yes! It will only delete your backup. Not your photos that are in the camera roll. If you delete the iCloud backup for your iOS device, iCloud stops automatically backing up the device. You can also back up your device using iTunes.

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".

I have just experienced the same thing and found that it looks like iTunes Match might have just been renamed and the settings moved. Note for future readers, I am using iTunes version 12.2.2.25 (64 bit) on Windows 10. Make sure you are logged in to the iTunes Store and also make sure your computer is authorized (see the Store menu item), and then try ...

My work around is: - Add an extra user on an apple mini we have which has enough space. - Add the user's iCloud credentials there. - Start Photos app and enable iCloud photo library - Import everything After importing turn on iCloud photo library on the macbook air (optimised) and voila. Of course, this solution only works when you have a spare ...

You seem to be in quite a pickle. Since the email address is either invalid or does not belong to you, you probably want to call Apple to sort this out. If you have not used the account for anything. you could just set up as usual, but I'm guessing you already started using that account. Go to Apple ID Support for more info.

Disconnect all iCloud devices from the network (in case one is problematic) Log in to iCloud.com from a computer Select Settings web app Scroll to the bottom left Select Restore Contacts See what archives exist and then go to the contacts web app to make sure the cloud version of contacts is wrong. Optionally, export all the current contacts in case a ...

Open the Contacts app and switch to the groups page (click on "Groups" in the upper left corner). Now drag the screen down for refreshing the groups. This will also sync the contacts itself!

You're probably still signed into iMessage with your old iCloud account. Go to Settings->Messages->Send & Receive and then tap your Apple ID and tap Sign Out. Also uncheck your old Apple ID in the "You Can Be Reached By iMessage At" pane. Finally, sign back into iMessage with your new Apple ID where you signed out of your old Apple ID.

Make sure you log out of the store after you've used it. Go to Store > Log Out and this should sort the problem.

I've done it myself. The only way to erase all messages was one by one. The good part is that only new messages were synced!

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

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 ...

When you add a new calendar "Event" on your iMac, there is an option to color tag the event to one of your calendars. If the color tag you choose is labeled "On My Mac", it will not sync to your other IOS devices (because "On My Mac" is not included on the Cloud). Use just about any other color coded calendar and it should sync. The safest is the one ...

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 ...

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 ...

Yes and no - not directly. That person would have to set up iTunes with your Apple ID and then browse through the list of purchased apps.

My understanding is that iCloud is for storage of photos, and not just for synchronization; otherwise, why would you have the option to purchase more space (which I have done). That being said, @Jaime Santa Cruz is correct in that you cannot back up Time Machine to iCloud, but you should be able to indefinitely store photos, docs, notes, etc., so long as you ...

If you enable iCloud Photo Library on your Mac, and your photos are on the Photos app, you can set it up to save originals on the cloud and automatically save space by keeping a lower resolution copy on your Mac. To do this, go to Preferences > iCloud, then select "Optimize". This will also allow you to view your entire collection on iCloud.com if you ...

The Photos link on iCloud.com lets you look at the contents of your iCloud Photo Library which is an optional part of the new Photos app. If there are no photos in it, the most likely explanation is that you don't have iCloud Photo Library enabled on any of your devices. It does not give you access to photos stored in iCloud as part of an iOS device backup, ...
