You want to (on your iPhone) open Settings, then go to Messages -> Text Message Forwarding, then uncheck your iPad

The design of iOS makes remote control not possible in the manner of KVM/remote pointer control. There is no concept of pointer in iOS since the touch interface is multi-touch from the get go. You could enable switch control or voiceover control and theoretically interface with that over the supported or non-supported (jailbreak) channel, but it's still ...

Currently, the answer is no. iOS does not have a built in cursor function(unless you count the new keyboard cursor is iOS 9). In order to use a mouse on an iPad at all, you would probably need to jailbreak it.

It appears that only synchronizing the original, pristine copy of a pdf file is supported. Synchronizing edits is not implemented, or at least similar questions on discussions.apple.com remain unanswered.

This is a very interesting situation and one that didn't, for me at least, bring any clear-cut obvious answer. Here is what I found. First, I created a very similar setup to yours. I connected my iPhone to my Macbook Pro and tethered USB. I had to forget my current wifi network so that I could actually share over my computer's wifi. So, first, double check ...

I don't think it's possible when using a shared network (you can share your internet connection through wifi if you're using ethernet). Why can't you make a wifi hotspot directly from the iPad ?

If you erased the iPad before giving it to your dad, then this issue wouldn't have happened. Anyways, can you view the iPad like a camera (in windows explorer)? Then can you copy all of the pictures off? The warning from iTunes about erasing doesn't always mean it will erase the iPad; I've had to sync my device to a new iTunes and It didn't actually erase ...

You don't need to go into Library/Containers to get to iBooks, you can just drag the PDF file onto the iBooks window. You can then delete the old one

There isn't a single great option for this because you can't copy directly into the clipboard of the iPad from the background, so in a sense you can't sync your clipboards. However there is Pastebot which was quite good, it's a bit old now, but should work still. Alternatively iCloud syncing through Notes.app is pretty fast.

If you are searching a tool to fully backup your iPad, iTunes is the best tool. But if you are not going to use iTunes, maybe this iPhone Data Recovery can help which enables you back up all iPhone data on PC.

Solved! It turns out in this situation the "incorrect password" error is really "can't connect to iCloud server to determine if password is valid" error. After enabling WiFi, establishing a connection to local router, verifying internet was indeed available, login is possible.

You can delete apps on any device without affecting the other.

Go to Settings → General → Reset → Erase Content and Settings. This will reset the iPad, removing all content and resetting all settings, without affecting any other iPad.

I don't think you can record directly to the iPad, but you could do it in a 2-stage process: Record from the analog video source to an SD card. There are various screen grabbers and mobile video recorders that can record to SD cards or similar devices. Something like this perhaps, though I'm not sure about the video codec being iPad compatible. I think ...

If you already took notes locally on your iPad or iPhone prior to enabling iCloud note sync, there is not much you can do to push these notes to iCloud once you enable iCloud note sync. I believe that there are some paid apps for Windows that can do the trick all at once but not sure if it would not just be better to copy the notes one by one.

I had the same problem, apparently my iPad couldn't be any more charged. So I brought it to a shop, and voila, they could charge it. Point being to really really use the original "fat" charger and not another one (like the thin one of an iPhone). The chargers differ in the maximal current they can supply (more than 2A is needed for the iPad).

even if you think you do not need to know the endianness someone might do. No need to explain why someone does not need it because you may do not know the context. The question is not "do I need to know endianness" but rather "is it big- or little endian". So concentrate on the subject please! Having said that probably it is the best practice if we do not ...

Not obvious at all, but: Tap My Music from bottom nav. Tap the red filter menu selection that's located roughly upper central on the screen, just below the Recently Added section. The filter menu should say Artists or Albums or Songs etc. Choose your desired filter option (Artists in this case). The list items below the filter will update. Tap the ...

No, unfortunately, there is no way to filter apps that work on earlier iOS versions. However, I've found a great site on that. It shows a list of every app that is compatible with any given iOS version. Don't try to download the app from them, though, just get the name of it and find it on the App Store.

Apple article: If you forgot the passcode for your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, or your device is disabled Reset video: RESET PASSCODE locked or disabled iPhone

Unfortunately, in order to restore an iPhone that was disabled by failed passcode attempts, you will lose all data. Anyways, here's the article which shows how to accomplish this.

Enter DFU Mode, and then try a restore. Method: First, plug the iPad into your computer, and then power it off. Make sure iTunes is running on your PC. Now press and hold both the Power button and Home button simultaneously, until you see the Apple logo. Now let go of the Power button while still holding down the Home button. iTunes can now associate with ...

Since you can't perform this trick... if you're that desperate, you can update to iOS 9 Public Beta and this feature will become present. Alternatively, you can jailbreak your iPad and get a tweak named All Mail Actions from the BigBoss repository in Cydia. If you're not willing to do any of these, you're going to have to delete each and every email ...

There are no userland exploits available for any recent version of iOS. JailbreakMe is for iOS 4.2.6 through 4.2.8, or iOS 4.3 through 4.3.3. You can jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 with absinthe2. You are currently not able to jailbreak iOS 8.4.1.

I copied this section from: http://www.igeeksblog.com/how-to-export-ibooks-from-iphone-ipad-to-computer/ I am not sure how much of it is useful to you. 1). Get a file explorer. Usually, iExplorer should do just fine. 2). Connect your iPhone or iPad to the computer and fire up iExplorer 3). Open your iPhone/iPad as a mounted device and navigate to: Media → ...

Check Settings->General->Accessibility->Zoom and made sure that Zoom is unchecked. Other than that, as far as I know, there is no way to change anything like that, at least without Jailbreaking (and I strongly recommend against that). It does seem like the kind of thing that iOS 9 might fix, though.

While some apps allow one to download the newest version that their iOS device supports when one is unable to run an app with the OS that he is using, some don't. Short of digging through an old iTunes library in hopes that the backup of an older version of an app was not deleted by OS X and then restoring that backup onto your iPad, there's really nothing ...

To install new apps really requiring IOS6+, I don't know. But after a lot of search I found: 1) You install Itune. (If not done yet) 2) You pair Your hardware with apple acoumpt. (If not done yet) 3) You find apps with older version of it existing and working on IOS5.1.1 . 4) You associate it (get it, download it) to your account on Itune on mac or pc. ...

You almost certainly need the geniune Apple USB Ethernet adapter, because it's probably the only USB Ethernet adapter that iOS has drivers for. Even if you find another adapter that uses the same chipset, Apple's drivers probably won't load unless the dongle identifies itself as an Apple product.

If the site is being accessed over HTTPS, then the lock icon is shown (in black). If the HTTPS certificate has been verified, the lock icon is shown in green.

Often this is just a ruse to get you to call the number and then pay a fee or provide a credit card number. In this case you weren't really hacked and damage is not done unless you make the phone call. Not sure what you mean by the tablet acting "weird" so its difficult to answer your question with any precision. Assuming you are concerned about the ...

Yes, that worked for me too! iPad Air 2 doesn't have a toggle switch. You need instead to swipe up the control center settings to access the mute function. When the mute function is activated, in app videos in Facebook and LinkedIn have no sound, while they play perfectly well directly in YouTube. Deactivate the mute button, and all inapp sounds work fine! ...

It plays out of cache when it is started. Whatever page you're on will attempt to download the entire audio and video in order to give the user a higher quality playback. There's an issue in the latest Facebook on iPhone where the audio keeps playing even after leaving the post. Depending on how much cache memory was used the audio will just keep on playing. ...

If you are resetting these things and then restoring then from a saved local backup that second part is tied to your Mac. You can reset an iPad to its "factory fresh" state from any Mac/PC, but you might not be able to reset an iPad to your desired "factory fresh eco_bach kiosk" state from any but yours.

You are definitely mistaken ;) it can be done by any computer, Mac or PC! As long as you have the IPSW file you can restore it from iTunes on any platform. It's only 'tied' when you sync your iPhone with iTunes library.

Yes of course it uses data. How else do you think it communicates with the server and keeps things synchronized? I think the real question is how much data does it use.

As has been said, go to Settings > Cellular to find it out for yourself, but let me also actually answer your question as the other two answers barely touch on that: All online games obviously use mobile data, otherwise they couldn't be 'online' If the game includes ads it will use a fairly significant amount of data. (Back when I only had a couple hundred ...

Since most items seem to have transferred, it sounds like the games weren't included in the backup of your old iPad. It is also possible these games required you to sign in with the same Game Center account to associate the new device with your progress.

I've finally found a solution that supports logical page numbers like the other PDF readers I have tried, but also respects custom page numbers embedded within the PDF. GoodReader shows the page numbers properly. It's $4.99

The newer iOS versions let you track the cellular data used by each app. Open Settings and then go to Cellular and then swipe up: You can reset the counter if you need to track one day's usage, and you can also disable cellular data for the game in question, if you just want to cut it off when you aren't on Wi-Fi. Generally, most games are quite miserly ...
