I solved it - turns out the problem was a flaky internet connection! The clue was that I was unable to sign in to iTunes on my Windows laptop (the connection was timing out), even though I could do the same on my Linux laptop. I rebooted the router and then was able to sign in to the iCloud account from the iPad and everything started working. I also ...

The digitizer (the part that senses touch) was damaged in the drop. It will likely need the digitizer replaced. Not sure if that is replaceable separately or of you have to replace the whole screen assembly but that is what needs to be done, no way around it.

There are several 3rd party AirPlay receivers which could run on Mac OS X and receive/record screen mirroring from an iDevice. You have to download and install one of these applications. Try LonelyScreen (free) or Reflector ($15). Another way is by using QuickTime. QuickTime on OS X 10.10+ can record iDevice screens, but you must connect your iDevice to ...

I just solved this problem on my iPad.... Go to the passwords and auto fill option... (2nd line down in your screen shot above) and select remember passwords and the auto fill option.

Rather than try to fix a broken Apple software setup, I shall suggest a third-party solution. I think iMazing (not free) can load apps onto iDevices without the need for iTunes now.

I use an app that works pretty well for turning a spare iDevice into a security camera and monitoring that feed on another iDevice. It's called "Presence" It's free with IAPs, but I've never paid a dime and it works fine for me. You will need to make an account with them, though.

Not in any reasonable manner. Instead, use a portable WISP router. This creates your own local WiFi network yet uses the hotel connection as the WAN. Some are no bigger than your finger if you're concerned about size of this additional hardware component.

Yeah... with iTunes syncing, you may lose some of existing data on your phone, which bothered me once. Actually, there are several tool in the market to help you easily copy photos from computer to iPad. You can just google them and get one have a try.

In my understanding, I suppose that Photo Stream will do the trick. Go to Settings > iCloud > Photos > My Photo Sream, and turn it on. Enable iCloud on both devices using the same Apple ID, and you can see the latest photos in Photos. Apple - iCloud - Photos

QPulse or some other document management system. If you value your data, there is never a good reason to use Dropbox. Ever. Here are couple of articles from the many available: http://www.zdnet.com/article/after-snowden-slams-dropbox-twice-ceo-responds-its-a-trade-off/ http://techcrunch.com/2014/10/11/edward-snowden-new-yorker-festival/

You can only delete the local cached copy of a message to suppress it being showed/stored on that one device. If you turn off iMessage and turn it back on, you will see the messages from iCloud come back whether you deleted a message or not.

I would use Dropbox for this, creating separate repositories for Sales and Installers. Any changes made on each device will sync back to DropBox, and any changes on DropBox will sync back to the individual devices. My business does this very thing with Marketing, and Sales. The one thing I see as an issue is that any changes will sync immediately, not ...

Actually, you can go onto iExplorer, click the Media tab, and delete the CloudAssets & LoFICloudAssets (I think), those two folders are where the Apple Music song caches are stored.

On your computer click on iTunes and then connect your computer and iPad with the USB/sync cable to transfer music playlists from iPad to Macbook Air. Click on the "iPad" symbol top RHS. The iPad "Summary" page will open up. Click on "Music" up top and you will be shown a page where you can select to sync your entire music library, or selected playlists, ...

It will probably be able to hold a couple hundered pictures, because on my 16gb iPad, I have 125 photos, but it still keeps saying "storage almost full." Still, I am taking pictures, which means I can still keep taking as many pictures as I want to until my iPad gets up to 16gb's.

There are solutions to automating editing and generation of App Store screenshots. Whether you find them 'simpler' depends a bit on what tools you're comfortable using: Editing existing screenshots? If you're adding frames and title texts, you can automate this with FrameIt (if you are comfortable working in the command line). Other generic image editing ...

You can change the wallpaper of a supervised iOS device remotely via MDM. There is a "Managed Setting" command available for this. Here is an excerpt from the Apple MDM documentation. A wallpaper change is a one-time setting that can be changed by the user at will. This command is supported in supervised mode only. iOS 9 will also introduce a ...

No iPads have ever been network locked and all current model iPads with cellular connectivity support both CDMA and GSM networks (see Apple's LTE information), with no frequency limitations. What that means is that your US-purchased iPad Mini should work just fine with an O2 data SIM (and any other UK data SIM for that matter - EE, Vodafone or Three). If ...

This is currently not possible OTA. You must connect the device over USB to change the wallpapers.

I typically don't uncheck tracks, but when I do, it's typically because I've ripped an entire CD, and there are tracks that I don't think I will want to hear, except on rare occasions. If I wasn't completely pedantic about having everything I own in my library, I'd probably just delete those tracks, but I don't want to have to dig the CD out of a box and ...

When you purchase the app, it stays associated to the Apple ID you used. You can install it on other iOS devices, too. Quoth Apple: You can associate your Apple ID with up to 10 devices, with a maximum of 5 computers at any time. Each computer must also be authorized using the same Apple ID. You can re-install it on a new iOS device in the future. ...

Take a look at this app in the Mac App store: https://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/prepo/id476533227?mt=12 I'm not sure this does exactly what you need, but it's a free app for most features and may be worth a try.

I think maybe Apple's team wish users use the Repeat->Custom function when adding an event to create multiple entries of the same thing. Yet, I also agree a copy/paste feature is highly lacking there...

It would be nice if you could expand on 'regular fixes'. There are multiple reasons why your ipad would not turn on: Hold both home & lock buttons for 5 seconds, this will force reboot an ios devise and can bring it back to life. Dead battery, leave it charging for 15 minutes. Even standard ipad chargers take a little time to bring it back to life. If ...

This solution works previous to iOS 8.3, wish I knew what to do on 8.4 though! : Download & install an app such as iFunBox Classic (free). This app allows you to explore your iPhone files with no jailbreak required. Plug your iPhone/iPad into PC via USB and start iFunBox Classic. In iFunBox, navigate to "User Applications/Kindle/Library". Copy ...

If you have two-factor authentication enabled for your AppleID, you will need to generate an app-specific password and then use that to log in to FaceTime on your iPad. If this is the case, you will need to sign in to appleid.apple.com with your normal AppleID password, then click "Passwords and Security" and then "Generate an app-specific password". When ...

I upgraded the iPad to IOS 9 Public Beta and did not turn iCloud on and the issue was solved. This is not an ideal solution and I'm lucky that the Beta was available. I tried reinstalling IOS 8.4 multiple times and the problem persisted. I tried both restoring the iPad from the cloud and starting fresh after an IOS 8.4 install. Both of these failed. I ...

It is currently not possible to change the format of screenshots from PNG, however there are many ways to change image using a PC. As for your second question, this is only possible by jailbreaking your iOS device and installing SSCapture.

Check the messages settings. It's in Settings>Messages. Under Send & Receive are the options to choose how you can be reached and how it starts new conversations.

System upgrade has nothing to do with the reboot process. No matter if it's automatically pulled and just wait for your green light to be installed. You can safely reboot your device without being worried that it will upgrade the iOS.

You do not receive the message again, but the update is available through the Settings app. Device restarts do not cause update installation. Source: my wife's iPhone 5S, which went weeks and multiple reboots without installing 8.4

Recent update to the Google Play Newsstand App (Version 3.2 - 14 July 2015) has added "Magazine support"! The experience is pretty much identical to the Android version.

Netstat app is not an application for viewing running processes, but checking your network connections, to see what you are accessing. This means that the aforementioned compute-1.amazonaws.com is not running, but a connection one of the apps on your phone has made. Anyways, this is not a virus, compute-1.amazonaws.com is a service commonly used to run ...

Apple devices do captive portal detection upon joining a wireless network to see if the user is behind a captive portal by attempting to load http://www.apple.com/library/test/success.html. It is no longer the right case. The url now begins with captive.apple.com, followed by unique generated path. The problem is that we are properly redirecting ...

I suggest getting Xcode on to your machine. Of course, you don't need to use Xcode itself, but you can use a companion app (it's bundled with Xcode) called iOS Simulator. They have a Safari app that you can open your webpage in. And, it's free.

Old topic but I stumbled upon it today. If you only want to get images over, there is Skala Preview, it's free and it's good! I use it to look at mock ups. If you have photoshop it can also do live mirroring!

A few further recommendations: Pythonista for native, unjailbroken Python coding Prompt and Transmit for SSH and SFTP access Screens for VNC (I would've commented on the accepted answer but I don't have enough rep yet to do so.)

You can turn your ipad to superb engineering/coding device with buffer editor. It's great code editor with vim support and it also supports autocomplete and syntax highlighting for many languages.

Turns out this is a completely non-issue. Restart the device. Answered here to keep the keywords for search, in case (like I did) others assume that it's a WatchKit issue, not a device/xCode connection issue.

I think most of these answers are pure speculation and the long term effects on your iPad's screen are at question. I would suggest that you simply look to replace the stylus as it has evidently worn out. It may be that they are not very durable products, but I certainly wouldn't recommend trying to hack a solution over just buying a new stylus.

There's no separate iPad version, no. The iTunes Store Page you linked says compatible with iPad, but optimised for iPhone. That's likely to mean it works, but won't look great.

"synced" can mean differnt things and is slightly ambiguous. However if you "backup" your phone via iCloud or iTunes, then you can restore the backup to another device and your iMessages and SMS texts will have been transfered. More info here: iCloud: iCloud storage and backup overview
