Turn your iPhone off and the back on. If that doesn't help, disable iCloud and then turn it back on. If that doesn't help, logout entirely of iCloud and then re-enable it.

The sub folder contains all the legacy photos from iCloud and iPhoto and normally should have photos and videos. With 10.10 and the new Photos app, everything appears to be stored in ~/Library/Containers/com.apple.cloudphotosd/ and not in Application Support once you open the new Photos app and allow it to migrate things. If you're in that situation (open ...

The answer appears to be "Yes, you can". After a month of the folder not being touched I finally deleted it and it hasn't caused any issue whatsoever. However, if any device using your iCloud account is still using Photo Stream (for whatever reason), you may still need the folder.

I just found out myself, that it won't work if you use Chrome or Internet Explorer, but it works when you use Safari to extract your contacts.

Usually two things cause this (or more precisely, one of the two): corrupt keychain items or corrupt software install wrong date/time on the iOS device The date/time is far easier to fix, so ensure the clock is accurate within a minute of reality / the PC that's working. Corruption is harder, so try powering off the device and back on, then try a backup ...

If you have multiple accounts on your phone such as your iCloud account as well as your work account it is possible that the new contact has been added to the wrong account. Go to Settings->Mail, Contacts, Calendars and scroll down about 2/3 of the way to the Contacts section and make sure that iCloud is the Default Account. If you find that you have ...

You can login in the iCloud account on your iPhone, and try to restore from the backup files which was uploaded before. And then you get a easy way to recover backup from iCloud.

It seems that you're going to restore your iPad by going through recovery mode. But before you do so, I'd recommend backing up your iPad (if you can). In order to get into recovery mode, you'll need to hold down on the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time. During that time, the rolling will happen: The screen will go blank The Apple logo ...

After about 2 weeks of working with the Photos app on a Macbook Air 128GB, with a much larger photos library, I've noticed the following things. There appears to be no fixed target size for the actual Photos library - instead its a target "free" space on my Macbook Air. Currently, the Mac Optimisation appears to target roughly 10% free space on my Macbook ...

Section IV.D of the iCloud T&Cs state: You agree that your Account is non-transferable From here. You didn’t “buy” your “friends” iCloud account, you “bought” the iPad. You should have made your “friend” wipe the iPad clean before “selling” it to you.

Looking at my speeds it appears that Apple presently is limiting it. I have 1/2 a gig of upload speed but i'm showing about 200 gig going up and I have not limited by upload speed at all. When doing an icloud backup from an iOS device it uses ALL the bandwidth and that slows other devices on the network and often disrupts connections so I think this may be ...

You need the original Apple ID to deactivate the Find my iPhone function on the phone. If the person who has it has put it on DFU mode, and its iOS version is 7 or higher, he will need the original Apple ID to reactivate it. You may wish to put the phone on "Lost Mode", that will put a message on the phone lock screen with information of your choice. ...

You'd still use it if you have devices that do not support iCloud Photo Library.

Yes, when you're friend is done using it, have him sign out of iCloud and then erase the iPad again. You will be asked if you want to restore from a backup while your are setting the iPad up again after the erase.

iCloud Photo Library uploads every photo on every iDevice to iCloud and syncs then. My Photo Stream only saves the 1,000 most recent photos. Basically, the only advantage of My Photo Stream is that it doesn't count against your iCloud storage, whereas iCloud Photo Library does.

If it is titled Family, IOS only lets you add people who is listed under "Family Sharing" (settings>icloud>family>'Add Family member'). If you don't want to share everything you purchase from the App Store or iTunes store (which is what family sharing is all about), then create a new shared album with a new name. Then you can invite and do all those other ...

Unfortunately, it would not appear at all if they did a root hardware restore (basically some jailbreak methods). There is a possibility (as tron_jones points out) that you must use a password in order to turn off Find My iPhone, but if the person was skilled in iPhone theivery, they will know how to restore the phone without this. If they are not, they ...

I am having a similar problem. All of my iOS photos have synced up to Photos on the Mac, but photos that I've added on the Mac show up blank in iOS. When I click on a photo, a blank comes up, with a progress clock in the lower right corner. However, that seems to stall at 25%. Even when I go into Edit mode, it appears to start downloading and appears to ...

You can simply drag single Photos from the Photos app into the desired folder or there is an Export option for albums in the File menu. Select album on the top bar (cmd+3) and mark the desired album and go to File -> Export (shift+cmd+E).

The apple ID is the user. At some point you'll need to bite the bullet and create new apple IDs for each user if you want separate texts/email accounts etc. My wife and I use a multitude of applications that can share data across accounts, like Anylist for reminders/grocery lists, etc (this can be integrated with the Reminders app Photostream for photos ...

Lilly, go to Apps purchases and if you purchase iPhoto in the past then you can download it again.

There isn't a file browser on iOS, so Apple doesn't expose that functionality to users. There is a file browser on OS X, but the "truth" for App Folders is currently stored in iCloud, so you can't delete a folder on OS X and have it stay deleted. The bird daemon will re-download the folder from the cloud if you try. The developer that created those folders ...

I just got around this problem. Setup the phone as a new phone, not from backup. Go to General > Updates and update to iOS 8.3 Go to General > Reset and Reset all Data and Content. This will keep the iOS version on the as 8.3. Now you can setup the phone and restore those new backups!

Merge them into one library (iPhoto Library Manager will do this job), then upload them to iCloud by designating the combined library as System Photo Library in Photos' preferences, after opening and converting it with Photos. Depending on upload speed, prepare for a very long wait. And if you then/afterwards want it on your MacBook make a new empty Photos ...

Easiest thing log into appleid.apple.com then call AppleCare in your country. While you are in the account management portal they'll tell you how to create a temporary support PIN and after verifying the serial number of your iPhone linked to the Apple ID, can help reset your security questions and associated email.

It would depend on what device you are viewing the photos. In case of iPhone: To view slides in random order (shuffle) turn the shuffle on.

Options 3,4 was the only ones that worked for me, but no guarantees... Holding Opt+Cmd while opening Photos, to do a "Repair". Selecting to keep originals on the computer, not optimize" them.

On your mobile device you open the icloud photo stream by its title, tap on "people", turn on "public website" then tap "share" and send the stream to your own email.

I had the same problem as you. Here's what I did to remove the duplicates quickly and easily. Export your entire photo library to a folder. Close photos and create a new photos library. (No deleting until you know it worked) Open that new empty library in photos and drag everything (using CMD+a in finder) in that exported folder to the Photos.app window. ...

Duplicate Annihilator worked great for iPhoto and Aperture, but it looks like their Photos support is still lacking. It may not be feasible to do a good job until a new version of Photos is released with a proper API. I checked and I don't see any alternatives yet. But I'm sure they'll be coming. So, unless you want to run Duplicate Annihilator on iPhoto ...

The correct answer is No, there is not. Apple does not let you share iCloud Storage with family members, unfortunately. Here's a forum link where this has been discussed: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/6543858 You can share your account and password, but then the storage is yours and not really sharing with a sub-account. Each individual Apple ID ...

It's not so clear from the other answers but it is now possible to enable the creation of publicly accessible website of selected photos from selected photo stream. Basically you need to enable (Settings -> Photos & Camera) 'Shared Photo Streams' on your iOS device - You don't need to enable My PhotoStream for this to work. Then from the Photos app you ...

After abortive attempts to upload my iCloud Photos Library (iCPL) and then wiping it again in various ways, there were left behind "All Events" folders, originating from the old iPhoto Events folder. Once the original copy on the computer was lost, it was not possible to remove the iCloud.com version. They were "orphaned". My question to Ask Different was ...

I had this problem, and I did this: I turned off the icloud calendar on the phone. I did a hard reboot of the phone. I turned on the icloud calendar on the phone. I set the phone and computer calendars to Push. I refreshed the iPhone calendar. (While in the Calendar app, go to Calendars and drag the screen down for a refresh.) Now it works great.

The problem is that you can't delete a large number of files at the same time. Try going into the folders and deleting 1-5 files at a time. Appears to be a well-known issue.

The answer is wrong: "Photos shared with you (or photos you share) get copied to your (or others') devices through iCloud. They reside on iCloud for just 30 days to give adequate time for all devices to sync them from the cloud." The 30 day limit is only for "My Photo Streaming", not for "iCloud photo sharing". The shared photo stream will be there until ...

You have to follow certain things before disconnecting your iCloud account.. First you need to download some files to the local storage.

If you have access to the iPod, go to Settings -> iCloud and then press Sign out. I think that should work without having to enter any password. Then you can add your own or do whatever you want. If you don't have access to your iPod because they're locking it using Find my iPhone, there are either two ways 1. They tell you the password to access the device ...

You can delete the iCloud account without a password I think. Does this help?

No, indeed. Photos that you share are not shared [sic], but are copied and then shared, despite clear indications in the user interface that would lead to the conclusion that they are. Furthermore, as a consequence, albums are not shared at all: instead the individual photos in the album at the time it is shared are copied. Moreover, if you add photos to ...
