Can you play the songs on iTunes? The exclamation mark means iTunes can't find the file associated with that song. Maybe you moved it or it was deleted, or it lived on another hard drive. The solution is to locate the files for your songs first, and then either re-import them into iTunes or re-link them in iTunes. More information here: ...

The activation lock screen will display the first few characters and domain name of the Apple ID used to lock the device. This should be sufficient information for you to tell which Apple ID is being requested.

Photo Stream is gone since iOS 8. Even though your 4S will be on an older OS, Photo Stream is not the way to securely save your photos, as Apple are starting to limit to the last 30 days only. I'd suggest Dropbox or similar, or get them onto your computer with iPhoto [Mac] or Photo Gallery - part of Windows Essentials [PC]

There are two types of passwords, the device passcode and the appleid password. The device passcode gives you access to unlock the device, and it can be as short as a 4 digit PIN. The AppleID password must be 9 (I think. It's either says "8" or "more than 8") or more characters long, contain at least one capital, one lowercase, and use at least one number ...

The exception message says: Error opening db at /Users/peter/Library/Caches/CloudKit/CloudKitMetadata Make sure that cloudd has permissions to write in that directory. If the directories permissions are fine, maybe the db was corrupted during the update. Try to move the file somewhere else, it's possible cloudd will recreate it if it doesn't see it.

Find the location of your iPhoto library (usually in ~/Pictures) and move it to the iCloud Drive folder in Finder. Once the library has moved, you can switch library in iPhoto by launching iPhoto with ⌥, then selecting the new library location.

This is part of the mail who sent apple regarding this: Blockquote Your complimentary 50 GB of iCloud storage is expiring on November 1st and your account will be downgraded to your original storage plan.

I had a similar issue and eventually got sick of dealing with the issues you have noticed and gave in and used the icloud account. Calendar, app store, reminders, notes, etc. It all works better with the icloud account. I never use the email address associated with it (and I've had one since the @me.com days). Yes it is annoying but Apple's built-in apps ...

The list of accounts is stored in the property list located at: ~/Library/Mail/V2/MailData/Accounts.plist The account data itself is stored in ~/Library/Mail/V2/<account-type>-<email-address>. This entire folder can be deleted for the account you wish to remove.

Yes, the iCloud password is required after an upgrade to enable iCloud on the device. If you are providing answers you believe to be correct, and the iForgot system is not recognizing them, you will need to contact Apple directly. Start at the Contact page for Apple ID support to determine the appropriate contact method for your country or location.

On your sons account you should be able to open up System Preferences, choose iCloud (you should see your account logged in here). From there just click sign out. It will ask if you want to keep synced bookmarks, contacts, notes, etc you can then choose to delete them or keep them on that account. Edit: Short answer: When you remove iCloud Drive from your ...

I would suggest you recover you password, since you will need it in the future. Go to Apple website to recover it. The use the email option to get it.

Yes, you will be required to verify your account when you first log in. I would suggest trying to get to the bottom of it BEFORE you upgrade, it will be harder after (since you should still have some access to email accounts etc). Also, I would research the effects of running iOS8 on an iPhone 4S. Although it may be supported, I would think it would be ...

From what I can gather, iCloud Drive doesn't want you to create your own hierarchy & drop files where you like, it appears you're supposed to put them in pre-defined locations... This was the best layman's explanation I could find as to how it works; I'm not a dev, so the details would need filling in by someone with more knowledge than me. iCloud Drive ...

sorry but what difference does it make to upgrade or not to iCloud drive once you install Yosemite?

Using iCloud does not add extra space to the device, at least not in the same sense as extra 64GB do. Things never go directly to iCloud: any new photos or videos have to be kept on the device for some time, until they are uploaded to there and removed from here. Uploading requires time and good internet connection and therefore is not always available, ...

I don't know how to permanently delete the alias, but in the iMessages settings, you can find a list of the email addresses you can send/receive from, and you can uncheck ones that you don't want to use. You could uncheck the email to remove it from receiving/sending iMessages, but I don't know how to delete aliases.

Computer memory/space is kind of like the old Hot Rodder's saying, "if too much horsepower is good, then too much is perfect." In other words, if you ask the question and can afford it always get more memory/space on any computing device than you think you might need. Often times you will end up needing it.

This is speculation until Apple makes an official announcement. Given that the iCloud Photos page doesn't mention Photo Stream once, and refers to "shared albums" instead of shared Photo Streams, I would guess that Photo Stream will be retired, yes.

I have a 64GB iPhone 5S. Before that I had a 64GB iPhone 5. And before that a 64GB iPhone 4S. And before that a 64GB iPod Touch. Each time I bought one of these & told people the capacity I would hear the same thing: "Why don't you use iCloud?" or "Why don't you use Google Drive?" or any number of the same thing: Device storage is irrelevant since it's ...

Your new phone will need free storage to take new photos. There is no provision to take a picture directly and have it go to iCloud. You'll want to run a calculation on how many photos and how many hours of video you need in addition to the other data on the device and then weigh that against the increased cost for the 128 GB model.

iCloud storage price : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5879?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US So it depends if you have a good network connection for download what you need when you want (photos with iCloud, musics with spotify...) or if you want all your photos, all your iWork documents and all your stuff on your iPhone all the time.

The Apple way is to pick a folder on your PC for sync. You do this through iTunes, by connecting your phone and picking the photos tab. Full information here: http://support.apple.com/kb/ht4236 However, if it's just 1 or 2 photos, the easiest way is to use Dropbox (you have Dropbox right?). Put the photo in your Dropbox, go to the same folder using the ...

Go to iTunes. Click on your iPhone/iPod/iPad. Go to Photos. If the "Sync All Photos" option is checked, un check it. You can reenable it later. Then, select your photo, and hit sync.

In case you don't read through the comments on Alistair's excellent advice above, once you've renamed/moved/deleted /Users/YOURUSERNAME/Library/Preferences/MobileMeAccounts.plist restart.

The iCloud Drive item in the sidebar actually points to ~/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs. That said, it is not possible to rename the sidebar item, and do NOT rename the folder. Doing so will likely definitely cause iCloud Drive to stop functioning (if it even lets you rename it).

They are still two separate devices. Restoring from a backup does not change that. So the next time each one runs a backup, it will be done separately, even if the devices have the same name. (That said, I would suggest for ease of identification, you change the name on one.)

Open iBooks. Go to the iBooks Store and click Purchased (on the right-hand-side) and then look for the book you want to remove. Hover over the cover and click the little x that appears. It will no longer come up in iBooks (or any other locations), no matter whether you have set iBooks to show or hide iCloud items.

Yes, iCloud drive on Macs keeps all of the files locally on every Mac, and needs enough space to do so. There's (at present) no selective sync option to keep some folders or files off some Macs.

The files are still there, just no longer accessible via Finder. You can use ls ~/Library/Mobile\ Documents/ to verify. To note, the folder has always been treated specially, and instead of just the App names, you'll see some unique strings followed by the app name. For a paid solution, Path Finder by Cocoatech still displays all the files, helpfully ...

This is a known bug with the newest iOS version. It's caused by the iCloud backup feature. You can fix it by disabling / re-enabling iCloud backup under "settings -> iCloud -> backup" Just turn it off for 3-5 minutes, turn it back on and reactivate, and it should stop prompting you. I had the same issue. More here: ...

It appears that if you upgrade to iCloud Drive, you won't be able to sync any game data with your iOS 8 devices. As an upgrade to iCloud Drive will no longer allow your older iOS 6 iPod to view or edit Documents in iCloud (which I assume includes game data). Source: this MacRumors forum

I've found iCloud Photo syncing for Windows to be incredibly unreliable. After multiple re-installs of the iCloud Control Panel, and eventually moving to a new PC, it never syncs photos reliably.

There is no graphical tool that shows an overview of syncing with Finder on OS X 10.10 and only time will tell if it gets added to any patches or newer versions.
