One of the functions of a screenshot is to show someone else a particular visual artifact you're seeing on your device -- perhaps to show a visual glitch to an app developer. In such cases, any compression artifacts could be a distraction from the actual issue under discussion; the screenshot needs to be pixel-perfect. Thus, a lossless format like .PNG is ...

Since you had the iCloud turned on initially, you will have to accept the T&C anyway. You have a iCloud account! Turning it off now is to late since you used the product already.

You could call apple care to turn off icloud for you. This would take a couple of hours to accomplish so I suggest you accept the T&C and than log out from icloud via 'settings > icloud' like @Buscar said.

I imagine this is the case: iPhone and iPad are using an integrated chipset (like this: http://www.broadcom.com/products/Wireless-LAN/802.11-Wireless-LAN-Solutions/BCM4334) supporting both Wifi and Bluetooth. And as both of them are on the same chip the manufacturer could be just incrementing the MACs. However the question is why you ask this - if you want ...

In short, no. It wasn't delivered, you didn't ask it to try again; so it won't.

In Settings → General → Language & Region → Preferred Language Order, you have to select English (U.K.) and remove others. In Settings → General → Keyboard → Keyboards you can select the keyboards languages you want. There is a keyboard called English (UK).

You need to set your device language to English (U.K.), not just the keyboard. To do this: Open Settings Tap "General" Tap "Language & Region" Tap "iPhone Language" Select "English (U.K.)" Your iPhone should reboot and your dictionary should be set to British English. If it doesn't, you may need to reset your dictionary by: Open Settings Tap ...

Disclaimer: I'd make this a comment, but I only just joined the Apple branch of Stack Exchange and lack the 50+ rep to do so. First and foremost, the keychain database that stores the device's secure information will only be present if a backup is encrypted with a password. If it's not, well, sorry, but you're out of luck. If it is encrypted, then we need ...

I believe the setting you are looking for is Settings > Touch ID and Passcode > Require Passcode. It should be noted that using a Microsoft Exchange account in email can effect the options available here. For example the only option on my phone is "immediately". this thread is how i finally learned why I only have the option "immediately".

Is your phone in a protective case? My wife's iPhone does the same thing because her case is loose and slides over the proximity sensor and thinks it's still by her face. The screen turns black because of a proximity sensor on the phone. This is to save battery during a call, and to protect the buttons from being pressed when it's up against your face. ...

You can create a new Apple Id on My Apple Id website. Just click on Create a New Apple Id and follow the instructions. In that website you can also Reset your password, that maybe it's a better option.

If it's unlocked, you don't need to activate it first. Simply switch out the T-Mobile SIM card and insert any SIM from a GSM carrier (basically anything but Sprint or Verizon in the US) and the device should work. If you are curious, you can open the settings app and tap General, tap About then tap Carrier to update the carrier settings for the new carrier ...

Your iPhone has a lower-power Wifi adaptor with a smaller antenna than your laptop. The networks it sees are probably the only ones it can connect to.

When typing in a contact name whilst creating a new message in Messages.app, if the contact sheet for that person has more than one number (or email addresses too) it'll display a list of all numbers. From there you can select which number you'd like to send the message to for that specific contact. If you've already sent a message and wish to determine ...

AT&T and T-Mobile both use GSM networks. So yes, you will be able to use your iPhone with T-Mobile.

Ring your carrier. They may have to reset your phone's profile, if the other SIM messed it up. They can send the new data (connection profile) remotely, you just OK it when it arrives. My carrier sometimes sends me a new phone profile after a major iOS update, or if they add new functionality etc. I can easily imagine swapping SIM cards could mess up the ...

You can use any browser to go to https://www.icloud.com/#find & track the phone, play sound, erase it or lock it - so long as you know your AppleID & password. If not, start at iforgot.apple.com

Yes, they will download even in slow Wi-Fi connections. There is no option to choose an Wi-Fi connection to do the automatic downloads. You can only disable the downloads on Cellular Data on Settings / iTunes & App Store / Use Cellular Data.

Open the Settings App and navigate to General –> Passcode Lock. To set the passcode lock delay, locate the button where you see Require Passcode. By default you will see “Immediately” next to Require Passcode. This means that as soon as your device locks, your passcode will be enabled. If you want to delay this, tap on the button and select After 1 minute, ...

yes - you should head back to the vendor that performed the repair as soon as practical and ask them to have a look at the device - assist with calibration and or perform the repair again if it's not working. Most locales have a short period where any work is warranted, so be sure to get something in writing from the vendor if they tell you they can't ...

Settings > Safari > Advanced > Website Data > Remove All Website Data Worked for me with iOS 8. Disconnect then reconnect the phone to the PC and all the "Local Disk" rubbish is gone.

Make sure your phone is updated to iOS 8.1.2 - this was a known issue in 8.1.1 As you update you will get a notice about it & a link to follow to get your ringtones back. See Restore missing tones on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 8.1.1

There is one way to do this: Restart your phone by holding down Home and Power for several seconds. This will lock the phone (and if you are using TouchID it will require a passcode instead of your fingerprint). (This is slightly different and faster than the previous answer of powering off and on the iPhone.) The previously-mentioned method of using Find ...

If you have an iPhone 5S or up, with fingerprint security - Touch ID - it is always locked immediately after 'sleeping' - with no way to bypass that timeout time. As the Touch ID method of opening the phone is faster than any swipe/numeric entry, this is no disadvantage whatsoever.
