It appears you are looking at the iCloud info in System Preferences on an Apple laptop or desktop. Inside System Preferences, after you click on iCloud, you then click on Manage in the lower right corner. When that window comes up, the top option is highlighted but not necessarily selected. If it's not selected, the backups will not show in the right column. ...

You can turn it off, but then you wouldn't be able to backup. If you have a Mac or PC, iTunes installed, your lightning or 30-pin dock connecter cable, a resonable amount of free space, you can backup with iTunes. It won't nag you. Plug in your iPhone, open iTunes, click your iPhone, and scroll to where it says backups, click iTunes, you can backup Health ...

Yes, they cross-pollinate from other devices. Mine come from my phone. I'm really not certain why they don't correctly sync both ways. If I add one to the Mac it appears on the phone, but ones deleted from the Mac don't necessarily delete from the phone & may later re-appear on the Mac. I've found the best solution is to just make sure you've also ...

If she didn't have Find Friends turned on (it is on by default so she would've had to turn it off) then what you're seeing is the last location the iPhone reported whenever it reported it's location last. If she's looking at it thru iCloud, perhaps she does have the Find My iPhone installed. This is where a user can locate their own device. The device ...

Turn on automatic backups. Whenever plugged in, locked, and connected to wifi, the device will backup. Call Apple if you are not sure how to turn on backups.

Take a look at AnyTrans; it's not expensive and it works well. I can simply copy all my photos and paste them anywhere on the Mac HD or USB HD. I was struggling before I used to this program. I am used to a PC where this sort of thing is easy.

You can create a public album and share the link to it to anyone, but not to a single image. One solution could be to create a album for each image. iCloud: Create a shared album You can also place the image file in iCloud drive, view the file in a browser and copy the link to it.

I don't know about the app you tried to get rid of the duplicates, but I've used Duplicate Photos Fixer, it has lots of options for filtering what images it considers duplicates, and its been really useful. I hope it works fine for you too.

You need to enable function "Find My iPhone" (inside Settings>iCloud). Of course, "Location" service (inside Settings>Privacy) also need to be enabled too.

First of all, I see that I can restore those: Notes, Reminder, Apple Mail, Apple Contacts, Apple Calendar, Photos. Then, you can also restore MANUALLY for those contents: Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks. PS: I'm using IP 5S. ^^

I suggest deleting that Shared Photo Stream and starting afresh with a new invite to your friend. Perhaps you mistyped the email address of your friend?

This is a guess, but if you turn off iCloud back up on the iPhone, you may be able to access them using iTunes from your PC. To turn off backing up photos to iCloud on an iPhone, go to Settings, then iCloud, then Photos, then turn off iCloud Photo Library. Note: My Photo Stream does not use any of your iCloud storage, so you can leave this on if you want. ...

That is only possible for the last 24 hours If the device was recently online, you also see the time it was last located. If the device has been offline for over 24 hours, you see “Offline.” https://support.apple.com/kb/PH2698?locale=en_US

Yes. iMessage allows this with the following caveat. Joe uses iPhone A to sign into iCloud with his account. The phone number for the first phone gets associated with the AppleID / iCloud account. Joe uses iPhone B to sign into iCloud with the same account. Now both phone numbers are associated with the same Apple ID. Now - set the "caller ID" in ...

You could create a new library in Photos, enable iCloud Photo Library, and let Photos download all your photos and videos. Once you've verified all photos and videos downloaded properly (this could take a great deal of effort!) you could then delete the old library from your hard drive. To create a new library in Photos: Hold down the option key while ...

You need to add the receiving email as an "Alternate Email" in your Apple ID settings. Visit http://appleid.apple.com, login, and look at the Alternate Email section. Once you've added it as an alternate, you can then successfully accept calendar invites sent to that email and have them show up on your iCloud calendar.

In more recent Safari versions where the button has gone away, just right-click or Control-click an item in the list. The context menu will show a Clear all… choice there.

Answering my own question.... I went into iCloud and saw that sometime recently it had added a \r (translating a return??) to each line of my auto reply. Deleted that and all is well.

No, iMessage and iCloud are (for all intents and purposes) unrelated services. Photos and videos sent or received through iMessage are only stored on Apple's servers long enough to deliver them to all devices you have registered, or seven days, whichever occurs first.

i had the same problem and changed the setting on the top of the screen from "All books" to just "Audiobooks" (because I just use it for audiobooks) Should also work if you switch to just "pdf" or just "Books". Give it a try. it solved my problem and no blank screen anymore when you open Ibooks

I just use dropbox, videos automatically go into the camera uploads folder. If the video isn't showing up because it already got moved to your icloud click the video and hit edit so that it downloads to your phone then plug back in and it will copy to your dropbox camera uploads folder. It can be a pesky process if it's more than one video, wish there was a ...

I had the same issue. I worked with the Apple engineers. Here was their answer. I deleted Clean My Mac 3 and it now works perfectly! From Apple: Engineering has noted that you may be using a 3rd party cleaner application which could be contributing to the issue. These apps are like CleanMyMac3 or Dr. Cleaner. If you are using these, please remove them and ...

I have had this problem as well, and looked at each of the settings in my iPhone 5 (with OS 9.3.1), after reading the advice above and other threads. In Notes, select the account folder you want to move notes from (ex. On My iPhone) Press "Edit" on the upper right. In the lower left select "Move All", or select each note individually, and then select "Move ...

You've got some different questions here. The iCloud app isn't meant to show your photos; that's what the Photos app is for. When you delete photos, it doesn't actually delete them; it puts them in a folder called "Recently Deleted" where they are retained for 30 days before actually being deleted. You have to delete them again from that folder if you want ...

Two things to note: the small print under "Optimize Mac Storage" states that "Originals will also be stored on this Mac if you have enough storage space", so hopefully the fact that you have plenty of space to spare will qualify as "enough storage space" and nothing will be deleted immediately (hopefully!) even though you're not offered the option in the ...

Apple has a variety of options depending on what status your account is on their servers. Gain control of Apple ID (which is used to identify the iCloud account) Apple.com/support can determine what's the status - keep in mind, they don't disclose some things by policy since people try to hack into other people's accounts - so you will need to jump ...

Airplane Mode disables any cellular service and wifi. You can only hope that the person who finds the iPhone will turn off Airplane Mode, and the iPhone will reconnect to cellular service. The iCloud server will then 'see' the iPhone and set it into Lost mode. Until Airplane Mode is disabled, you are out of luck. In addition, you will have had to ...

You aren't forced to use app-specific folders, it's just the initial setup. Why not just store things outside the app folders by dragging your existing file structure into the drive folder itself? On OS X - iCloud drive works just the same as Dropbox. You get a folder and it syncs. Apple makes special folders for some apps and categories, but you don't have ...

Just been through torture trying to turn off 'find my iphone' and delete things. Fact is, because I foolishly changed my icloud login on my mac before doing the other devices, it would simply not let me past the old (now defunct) login email address. So: I connected my iphone to itunes using my USB lead and went into backup. First question asked by the ...

To recover data from an iCloud backup you need to restore the whole backup onto an iPhone. All data currently stored on the phone will be lost as part of the process. As you are already using iCloud, you might also find your contacts by directly logging in on icloud.com with your Apple ID. This of course will only work if you've configured your phone to ...
