I've had this problem ever since I got ICloud, months ago. I finally decided to sit at my computer all day until I figured it out and I finally found the answer! It's just a setting in Outlook-- a hard to find setting! I've given the link below, but also pasted the instructions here. Need to re-start and wait a few minutes for the changes to take place, ...

Try and turn these off Reminders under the following setting pages and see if it helps: Settings > Cellular under Use cellular data for: (will be a long list) Might have nothing to do with Reminders trying to connect to the internet, but it's worth a shot: Settings > Notification Center under Today view:

I can confirm (from second-hand bad experience & first-hand testing) that a complete disk erase & clean reinstall does not disable Find My Mac. You need to also either: Reset the Mac's PRAM (aka NVRAM aka firmware settings). You can do this by holding Command-Option-P-R at startup, and holding them down until the computer has restarted & chimed ...

I would do a full wipe on any new computer I bought anyway, regardless of iCloud. Regardless of that - Before buying it, I would want to see it turned on and working. Then have the seller go into iCloud preferences and turn off everything, then log out of iCloud on the machine. Basically, have them follow this: ...

You can email it as an attachment to another email address. For emailing single photos, I got around this problem by setting up a secondary email account and emailing it to myself there. Then I checked the email account from my laptop. For multiple pictures, I had to use a windows machine (Windows 7). I just plugged the iphone into the PC's USB and it ...

The most efficient way would be to use Box or Dropbox. If you're looking for a "just works" solution, iCloud drive in iOS 8 and OS X 10.10 Yosemite would also work.

I would recommend Pushbullet. You can send just about any message or file between a phone and a computer extremely simply. The catch is that the receiver of the pushbullet must have the Pushbullet chrome extension installed.

These contacts are most probably stored not only in iCloud, but also on your device separately, in the device-only contact group called "on my iPhone". Your situation is probably a remnant of the times when you synced the contacts via iTunes. Then they got migrated to iCloud and were effectively doubled, but you only saw one contact in the Contacts app, ...

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. ...

You change the Apple ID and password as described in App Store. After that you delete old Apps whichever software you want to update.
