To strictly answer your question, it is not possible to delete something from your device and have it remain and accessible from iCloud Photo Library. Here's more details: The idea behind iCloud Photos Library is to have all your photos on all your devices. Picture a parent of a small family in California who takes, on average, several photos a week and ...

Yes, it will delete them from iCloud. If you need more space on your computer, you should get an external drive and move the photos onto there, then delete them from your Mac.

From the screen image, I would try a couple of things since you should be able to log in to the Mac and do things other than iCloud. Press cancel in the dialog and then check the date/time on the Mac. It should be within 2 minutes of reality if possible. Then go to Safari and check at https://icloud.com to be sure you can log in and the account isn't locked ...

Any alias needs the real data available in order to work with it. There are two aliases available in Mac OS X: Finder alias Symbolic link FINDER ALIAS A Finder alias stores some information, like where a file is to be found and what login information is required to access the file share that file is located on. It does not store the login information, ...

Hi I've had the same problem. Plugged my phone in as this is the way I've always done it, kind of like a hard drive. I panicked when there were only 15 images.... turns out I just needed to update my internet explorer... and download an up dated icloud I can now see all my photos woop woop. Hope this helps x

For complete belt & braces, you really need a minimum of 3 distinct locations for any data you consider 'permanent'. Your computer. a local backup an off-site backup. There can be some element of redundancy in this. You can backup your iPhone to your computer, via iTunes. Your computer then ought to be backed up to either another computer in ...

Actually i have found solution of this issue. It seems apple didn't handled unusual cases with new Favorites tab introduced in Yosemite as far as i remember - but this is actually easy to predict, shame on you apple. I have quite a lot pages in bookmarks (old styled, dropdown menu), and favorites tab, in favorites i have subdirectory with bitcoin exchanges. ...

You start your question by saying you have limited storage so I have taken the liberty of proposing a solution that doesn't delete, but instead stores smaller versions of your photos. Look at this Apple doc iCloud Photo Library FAQ, if the goal is simply to save space there are approaches that will help you in the Quoting rather liberally from that ...

iCloud does have a web interface for drive - I believe it was recently added. Log into iCloud.com with your ID and password, and it should be the fifth box. BTW, iCloud only gives you 5 GB for free, so if you haven't yet you'll have to buy more space if you want your drive to fit on iCloud.

In addition to the other answer which allows you to do a general backup of your phone which may include your photos, you can also download your photos directly to your computer with software such as Picasa (from Google) or Apple software like Image Capture (in Utilities) or iPhoto (which may also be known as Photos). These methods will also preserve the full ...

Since you have Apple products listed, iCloud calendars would be the place to start. Go to: https://www.icloud.com There is a link in the top right on the instructions for setting up each of your devices to use iCloud for calendar syncing: https://www.apple.com/icloud/setup/ Start with one device - then check in the cloud using ...

You can back up to iTunes on your Mac or PC desktop or laptop directly over USB. Connect the device over USB to iTunes, select your device in the toolbar and click Back Up Now.

At some point somebody used your Apple ID on one of their devices (either OSX or iOS), or their Apple ID on one of your devices. Or, somebody might have connected your or their iPhone in your or their iTunes in the past. And things got mixed up. If you don't have a local iTunes backup, there's not too much you can do to recover. And if you have a local ...

If you had Find My iPhone enabled, then the thief would have needed to know your Apple ID login details to be able to remove it from iCloud. If you didn't, all they had to do was wipe it & it's gone.

Had the same problem with my Mac, and I can't say what exactly solved it. I copied my keychain, removed it from Keychain Access, rebooted, and then added it back, and that seemed to fix it, but I can't say why since supposedly removing it from Keychain Access then adding it back should be enough. If that doesn't work, there are versions of Keychain Access ...

The answer is mixed. While the iTunes app store can be signed into with a separate Apple ID, there will be some data (naturally) stored on the second account you use. The device will not be added to their My Apple Devices, though it will become an Authorized Device in iTunes Store. As such, some level of data will be held in the Apple Servers to facilitate ...

Yes, you are not alone. I've been having the same problem, started mid-way through 2014. I didn't think anything of it at the time, but wish I had. I've also gone through multiple rounds with Apple Support only for them to repeatedly tell me that I have no GPS data in 2014 pictures, despite the fact that the vast majority do have GPS data. A few months ago ...

Just solved the identical symptoms - thought it was el Capitan because the service stopped working the same day I ran the 10.11.3 upgrade, but in fact LittleSnitch was blocking identityservicesd from contacting IMRemoteURLConnectionAgent. As soon as I deleted the rule all was happy. I would assume that any firewall could be doing the same thing. I was ...

Since mobileMe (which handed out the @me.com addresses) was turned off some time ago, all you can now create are @icloud.com emails. If you had an AppleID which predates mobileMe (e.g. a dot Mac account) you would have three aliases: myname@mac.com myname@me.com myname@icloud.com So the short answer is, no it is not possible to create a new @me.com email ...

It's not entirely clear, but I'll take a guess. If you connect the phone to a computer and no photos are removed when you sync, the most likely setup is the iPhone is using iCloud Photo Library. You would turn that off in the settings app - iCloud. Then once the library is off - choose whether you want the phone to participate in Photo Stream / Photo ...

Contacts can pull information from multiple locations: The device has a local store Connecting the device over USB to a computer can put contacts into this local store Many cloud services will sync contacts - look here since you are seeing a deletion propagate off one device and on to another.

This happened to me I gave my husband my old apple 5s but didn't wipe it clean first. He deleted 3-400 of my contacts in a 1 hour period since they were still using the same iCloud account. From experience I now know to rest the old phone to factory default and set it up that users own Apple ID. Problem solved except couldn't recover my contacts since a new ...

About the closest thing that could reasonably be expected to the iPhone being "hacked" would be the thief guessing the passcode, and since you said you have a strong passcode, that probably won't happen. Because of this, you may as well hold off on wiping it; if the thief ever turns it back on you will see it in Find My iPhone and may have a chance of ...

In Settings, visit "Mail, Contacts Calendars." Scroll down and select "Fetch New Data." Then, on that screen, temporarily turn on "Push," and then make sure iCloud is also set to push, so that new data is pushed from the server automatically whenever possible. This should push through any new data immediately. You may then want to switch Push off for data, ...

OMG I figured out what's happening, and I'm horrified. If the song in question is available in Apple Music, then that song will be automatically treated AS an Apple Music item and therefore will NOT be able to stream even after being added to the iCloud Music Library, on any device running an OS older than 8.4. So to be clear... music that I created myself ...

You can't to my knowledge. Find My Friends (sadly) requires an iOS or OS X device be configured for use with Find My Friends at least once. If you have no Mac or iOS device, you can't. If that article wasn't clear enough (it's rather vague) here's a more explicit one. Note: If you don’t see Find My Friends on iCloud.com, your account just has access to ...

In short: No, not easily. There is no officially sanctioned or supported way to sync your preferences to any cloud service. A longer version: Maybe, but it will be unsafe and prone to breakage. While you might have some limited success symlinking either folders or individual files into a cloud storage provider's folder, I would advice against it. You ...

This link can be helpful for you to understand what's going on. Please refer also to the following pics, to see what's exactly your case. In general, a dotted-lined iCloud icon means that it is waiting to be uploaded. In order to force the sync, you can try to open the document that you are trying to upload, make whatever modification to the file (even ...

I assume that you’re talking about the services added by third-party apps. You can do it easily by downloading Services Manager and turn off all the services you’re not using. There are two options you may choose. Turning off context menu simply remove the services when you use secondary click on the files, images, or text, however, you can still run it ...

This is a good thing, it means that you are free to add your own iCloud account. To add more information, having it linked to someone elses iCloud account is a really really bad thing. When I used to work for Apple, we would get calls from people who thought they got a great deal but when they tried to upgrade to iOS 7, or use the phone for the first time ...

"No iCloud Active" means, it is not linked to any iCloud account. It may have been linked to iCloud account previously, but now it's not linked. You can use it with your own iCloud account.

You should be able to do this at icloud.com. After you sign in, click photos, then upload at the top. You should then be able to select the photos you want to upload and click choose. Note all the photos must be individually selected: you may not select a folder. You may alternatively drag them to the photos interface on icloud.com. Obviously, it will take ...

Do you have other Apple IDs linked via Family Sharing? I would try deleting the offending app, and re-downloading under her ID.

If you upload anything to iCloud it will be available to all devices logged into that iCloud account provided there is a way to access the account directly. If I upload a picture to iCloud using my iPhone I can later drag it to my desktop on my Mac. In OS X (I believe in Yosemite and later) there is the "iCloud Drive" folder in the sidebar, (which may or may ...

I ran into this myself, came across your question while seeking the answer, but have since figured it out. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204926 The key is to enable iCloud Music Library under Edit > Preferences > General in iTunes. That then enables the "Add to iCloud Music Library" right click option over albums and individual files. Items you "add ...

Manually enter your username and password. Tap "Passwords" right above your keyboard. Tap "Save This Password." It still won't autofill when you first load the page, but now you can tap in the username field and hit "Autofill Password."

So I tried the steps using the Configurator, which almost worked. My mac would keep connecting to the proper wifi, but after an hour or so it the keychain would pick it up.

You can perform the same function through iTunes on your Mac. Just plug it in, go into the iPhone's settings, and set it up from there. May have better results.

So, I've answered this for myself: iCloud Photo Library photos are buried in subfolders of "~/Pictures/*.photoslibrary/Masters" on El Capitan! Using a savedSearch, the same approach as was popular under Yosemite and earlier, we can create a Finder folder that lists, chronologically, your Photo Stream. The XML version is here (you may have to modify some ...

Mac do not have hardware activation lock. Read the last paragraph of the "FAQ" for confirmation. https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT201365 You would want to check for a Firmware Password which might need another question if you don't know what that is, but iCloud cannot prevent you from reinstalling an OS or activating any Mac that has shipped thus far. ...

I've dealt with deep-rooted issues on my iCloud account, and I have been asked by Senior Advisors (in the US) for permission to put my account into Troubleshooting mode, which requires that they provide you with a temporary password so they can access your account and see what's going on with it. Talking with various Senior Advisors over the course of a few ...

I used to work for Apple support, both iPhone and Mac, both first and second level ("Senior Advisor" to the outside world). Without knowing all the details, here's my reaction: Support operations that Apple runs in other countries than the United States can rarely have some different support procedures, but this one sounds too far out of bounds.
