The Apple ID is how the iCloud system identifies you. If you share an Apple ID, then iCloud thinks you are using both phones. If you don't want the calls to show, then don't share the Apple ID. Why are you sharing an Apple ID? Is it to be able to share purchases from iTunes/App Store? If so, you CAN use a different Apple ID for the App store than your ...

Yes, you can trigger that using Find My iPhone or on icloud.com. Just put it into Lost Mode and choose to display a message on the screen.

The blacked out part or scribbles on the image were rasterized and became a part of the picture when the screenshot was taken. So there is no way to remove the scribbles on top of the image as they are part of the image.

No, I'm afraid it does not reduce the power consumption of your device. LCD screens (which the iPhones use) use - almost - the same amount of power no matter what colour is being displayed, and the majority of this power is used by the backlight, so if you lower the brightness of the display you can actually save power. As far as I know, the Galaxy Note ...

As another answer pointed out, iOS 8 uses FDE with passcode enabled, much the same way FileVault encrypts a hard drive on a Mac. The more data you have, the longer it will take to de-crypt or re-encrypt all this stuff as you toggle it. The secondary reason for this is by design: Mac OS and iOS have strong UNIX and BSD underpinnings, as most are aware (side ...

The latest iOS version supported by iPhone 4 is 7.1.2. There is no official way to install iOS 8 or newer on older iDevices. You can find a compatability list on Wikipedia.

If you have any 3rd party apps for health tracking, like Withings, they sometimes add onto your records. My experience was my Withings app completely doubling my steps and distances. If you do have these apps, delete them or just turn of their accessibility to your health.

Apple has updated the music app. The icon changed with the update in iOS 7, I believe, and the music app saw some big changes with iOS 8.4. Some of the UI is harder for me to figure out and use but all of the old functionality should still be there. To play an entire playlist, tap the Play icon in the upper right of the playlist. It should be overlaid onto ...

Here are a few things that you can try. These will be non-technical answers to you question. Go to Settings>General>Date and Time and toggle the Automatic switch. This will set the correct time for your iPhone, as sometimes the App Store does not download apps to iPhones with their clock set in the future. Restart the iPhone by holding down on the ...

Yes, use the same Apple ID, do not create a new one. The Apple ID is what 'ID's' you to the Apple system, allows backups, preferences, purchases, etc to be sync'd between devices. If you create a new Apple ID, you will lose all your purchases, etc. You CAN use a different Apple ID for the App store than your Messages, iCloud, backups etc. Before Family ...

Another option is to make a custom wallpaper image for the lock screen. Mine displays my name, address, email and contact numbers.

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

I just found a simple solution, first select your videos and then transfer them via Airdrop, piece of cake.. Just turn it on, on both devices, select them and send ^^

The answer by @cmmason above explained Apple ID very well, but if you want to transfer everything over to your iPhone 6, then follow these steps: Connect iPod Touch to computer with iTunes on it Click the iPod Touch in the top left Cancel automatic backup, if you have that enabled Check Encrypt Backup Click Backup Now, and yes, you wish to copy whatever ...

Actually, the data on your iPhone 6 is encrypted at rest and furthermore no data comes off the device even if it is connected to a computer. Someone would need to brute force the PIN and then press Trust to trust a computer which would then be able to transfer off data or sync the device. It's suspicious you got password resets. Perhaps the lock screen was ...

I have been using iMazing (on the Mac) and FileApp (on the iPhone) which make it very simple, and you can just drag and drop your files back and forth. I am also currently trying Infinit which works really well and is free.

I find that when AirDrop stops working even when both devices are within bluetooth range and on the same Wi-Fi network, I often have to reboot both devices. There may be another way, but rebooting both has almost always fixed it. Also of note: if you have any firewall enabled, those settings can interfere as well.

You can use AirDrop to send files from Mac to iPhone. You can read more about it here https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT203106

As it turns out it is possible to create a profile in Apple Configurator that creates the button(s) you want, save it, and then send it to the person to install, which will then add the buttons. Totally painless on their end, so I can certainly deal with creating the profiles. Hope this helps someone else. Short summary: Get Apple Configurator form the ...

The whole thing's weird... it says 7k steps but the top line shows 3k, Walk/run again, 10m, but the top line is only 5... & repeat for the flights. The top line ought to be the next 'sensible' number above the highest single point recorded for that day/week/month. I'd try at least a reboot if not a restore. The issue with waiting forever to view the ...

There are two approaches that could lead to less power consumption: a display that is enabled to have a dedicated greyscale mode; less pixels to be in charge of software that automatically renders "less" if you tell it not to render any colors Whilst the first is definitely not applicable as the iPhone features an LCD screen, the latter is something I ...

I have observed a similar problem with RunKeeper in the past (not on my iPhone 6 as of yet) and I believe it has to do with the phone struggling to accurately locate itself at that moment. iPhone's "zero-in" on their current location, starting with a big radius and shrinking it as it gets more accurate information. With that, it always assumes that it is in ...
