or Air Drop. Apple's iOS 8.2 + OS X Yosemite allow for OTA transfer of files via bluetooth between the platforms. Earlier versions of iOS & OS X allow for OS X <-> OS X or iOS <-> iOS. WiFi is not required.

Turn blue tooth off. That should help.

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. When Yosemite comes back up again, it will ask you for your iCloud password and it should all work. This does seem to happen if you decline to set up iCloud during the ...

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 ...

Someone on the Apple Forums explained that I need to turn on Contacts for both Apple ID accounts on my wife's phone. This will allow us to have different "My Info" cards while still syncing contact changes.

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 was also concerned with having nothing in my iCloud drive. Turned out to be that I just had no apps that stored data in it. Try running pages and saving a doc in the cloud, see if it appears.

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. The best it can do is show the oldest several photos that's still in my iCloud Photo Stream when I happened to install it. They never go away and the folder is ...

There is an iOS app called Documents by Riddle in the app store. This app includes support for browsing and opening files from iCloud Drive. There is also an app called Cloud Drive Explorer.

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. There is a brctl tool that ships with Yosemite to monitor changes. Open terminal and type the following command: brctl log --wait --shorten It will show you a brief summary of the sync changes ...

I have noticed the same problem. The only way I have found is to look at the upload status bar in finder, way down at individual file list level. It shows how far the file has uploaded and then changes to file size when completed. Definitely not as helpful as Dropbox.

Those screenshots are from inside Pages, an app which contains support for iCloud Drive and allows you to select any Pages file inside any of your folders in iCloud Drive. You can't just 'access' the files in iCloud Drive in iOS like you can on Dropbox. You need to use an app which supports that filetype and iCloud Drive to be able to open the files.

I believe those screenshots are of a third party app called "Cloud Drive Explorer." It can be downloaded in the app store

iCloud preferences seem to be spread across a few different plist files. The main one (funnily enough) seems to be called /Users/YOURUSERNAME/Library/Preferences/MobileMeAccounts.plist. That's the one that stores your account details (ID, UUID, DSID and AlternateDSID) and information about the services you have enabled or disabled. You could try closing ...

To take advantages of iCloud Drive, the third-party apps need to implement the Document Provider Extension so you can share those files and send them to iCloud Drive. I’ve explained it in one of the post I’ve written: Not to confuse document provider extension with share extension where you can only send and upload selected files, document provider ...

You are correct. From John Siracusa's extensive OS X 10.10 Yosemite review: (emphasis mine) Upgrading is not mandatory, but iCloud Drive completely replaces the old “Documents & Data” item in the Yosemite’s iCloud preference pane. Applications like TextEdit and Preview won’t provide access to any form of iCloud document storage in Yosemite until ...

No - iCloud drive is strictly for sharing with one account. You could use Apple's MailDrop feature to email each file to the recipient(s) that need to share the file, but it wouldn't be anything that's hosted and really shared in the sense that a change to the file by one user would then be reflected on the cloud. For that, you would want to set up ...

If you take photos with burst mode or image stabilization on your iPhone 5s, only the photos you select as favorites when using burst mode and the final composite image shot with image stabilization are added to My Photo Stream.

It is likely that you will need to prove to Apple what has happened. EG you are now the legal owner of the iPad and have legal access to her account. Call Applecare and ask them what the procedure is for these circumstances. I suspect (if they can help) it may involve a death certificate, a copy of the will and a notarized letter from the executor of the ...

No, The app doesn't expose past actions and events to users.

Assuming you are talking about videos that are in Photos: You need at least iOS 8.0.2 to do this. Go to Settings -> iCloud -> Photos -> Enable iCloud Photo Library (yes it works for videos as well) It's still in beta so read the warning it will show you carefully.

It sounds like the Notes were being saved on iCloud on both devices. When you deleted them from your phone, you were really deleting them from iCloud. If you use "Time Machine" to backup your macbook, you can go back to the day before you deleted the notes on your phone and then sync your phone with iTunes to put the notes back on. Then, on your iPhone, ...

You could use a different cloud service. Dropbox offers 2GB of free space (or 1TB for $9.99 a month or $99 a year) When you connect your phone, it will sync your photos & videos under a folder called "Camera Uploads". Once your videos are in your dropbox account, you can safely delete them from your phone and get that space back. Also, Google Drive is ...

The way I fixed it was to drag one document over another, which automatically creates a folder (like in iOS). Then, I dragged them back out from the folder, and the status waiting status was gone.

You might be able to make the "on the iPhone" contacts go up to iCloud. First, backup the iPhone in iTunes so if everything goes wrong you can go back to the way things were. Then for good measure, backup your computer too, particularly the contacts/calendars/etc. that get stored in iCloud. Now that everything is safely backed up, on the iPhone, delete the ...

You can try adding the dan@old.com email as a secondary email address for your Apple ID and try signing out then. If you feel the need to you can then remove it once again. You can do this at appleid.apple.com

As Tyson says, this might help: http://support.apple.com/kb/ts5223 If you can make your AppleID change back to dan@old.com you should then be able to sign out of it on the iDevices. After signing out the iDevices - change the AppleID again to dan@new.com and you're good to go.

Apple is generally good about privacy and security, and risks their reputation if they were to violate user expectations by secretly looking at private data they say they don't look at. However, for the more cautious (including me), some default settings do need to be changed. Keep in mind also that iOS devices access a number of non-Apple "cloud" services ...

Tapping Settings > General > About > Diagnostics & Usage will allow you to choose between Automatically Send and Don't Send. Turn off iCloud and don't use it at all on iPhone.

Pick 1 and stick with it. I have had similar issues, and wanted to synchronise multiple accounts, AND multiple devices. This is technically hard. For example.

when it comes to privacy Apple is your biggest friend.

If you're not already syncing your contacts via iCloud, then you can sync them to your computer in iTunes in the Info screen. Then you can sync the computer's contacts to iCloud and so get them onto your new phone that way. Alternatively, you could try backing up your current phone (Summary screen) and then restoring the backup to your new phone. Good ...

based on the information that I've read from the Apple forums, go into settings>facetime> and turn your iphone cellular calls off. Do this on both devices, this should stop the calls from going to both devices.
