When I want to download an app now, it wasn't a problem. It could be ...

I just have had the same issue when I try to restore 5S backup into 6. After a few attempts, it eventually worked fine. Here's what I did for the successful try: Take old iPhone backup with encryption on Reset all content / all settings on new iPhone without connection to PC / Mac Go through startup config on new iPhone until you see "Set Up iPhone" ...

Connect your iPhone to your computer. Once you open iTunes, you will see a check mark on Sync only checked songs in the main window for the device. This will only sync the songs checked in your library for that device (iPhone) and will delete the ones you don't want. Make sure that check mark is selected. In your iTunes music library, deselect the songs ...

If you go to Settings -> General -> Reset -> Erase All Content and Settings This will restore the device to an 'Out of the Box' state and allow you to start the process of set up again. It will not deactivate the device as far as the carrier is concerned and you can still make and receive calls and SMS but will lose contacts and call history, etc....

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 ...

Download the Airport Utility app from the app store and then in the settings app enable Wi-Fi Scanner. You get a searchable list and export capabilities of the results. Once you have a scan, you can post those results in a new thread to ask what to do in your situation once you have concrete data.

The thing about the iphones is that it can only get wifi a very short radius from the location(about 10 feet). So try moving your phone to a stonger location of your wifi so that you can access it.

It's not iFile caching the property lists, it's iOS 8 doing this. For improved performance, preference files are not actually read from file often—only when necessary. Furthermore, the cache that iOS maintains can overwrite the stored property list files when necessary, meaning that it can be difficult to change preferences. SyncedPreferences also adds to ...

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.

On your phone you can use the Setting app to set the default ID for App Store under "iTunes and App Store" Set ID1. Open App Store -> Updates. At the top you can click Purchased to see all apps purchased with that account. Then, go back to settings, sign in to ID2, and go back to the App Store and check to see ID2s list.

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.


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 ...

Are you using iTunes Match? If so, turn it off. Any locally cached files will be purged. iTunes doesn't see the Match downloaded music but only what it is configured to sync. I think this is why you see usage difference between the phone and iTunes.

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. ...

I believe the problem was fixed in either iOS 8.1.2 or possibly 8.1.1. Running iOS 8.1.2, I have tested the same photos from my Camera Roll that gave me the issues described and they now transfer at the correct resolution.

Have you tried a hard reset or restored to factory settings? That your screen goes black when you hold it against your ear is normal. But it should turn on again when you remove it from your ear.


-1

Probably because you didn't just reboot it. All you did was turn on the screen. Once you enter the passcode, some but not all of the data remains accessible until you turn the phone (not just the screen) off. To turn the phone off, press and hold the power button for 5 seconds until a "Slide to turn off" slider appears, and slide it.

The technical issue with the 5 is that the AT&T models made in the first few months after release didn't support the 700Mhz band used by T-Mobile. You have to look at the serial number to know if your phone supports it. The details are in a tech note on Apple's site. Your phone will still work even w/o 700Mhz support but, as noted, in some areas it ...

As Insomniac Software mentioned, the Birthday calendars come from the Contacts app. In the Contacts app, it (confusingly) launches at a page that shows an aggregated view of contacts from different sources. Tapping the "Groups" button at the top left of the screen takes you to the list of sources. You mentioned that on your Groups screen, you have two ...

Grgarside, I hate to say this but no, the transaction doesn't take place at the moment you authenticate it. They let you download the app, sure, but they don't take any money out of your account. They make you wait a week until they take it, and I'm wondering the same thing the person asking the question is, as I "bought" multiple apps when I had money in my ...

When I connect my iPhone 4s (running latest iOS 8) via USB to my WIN7 PC, I also see those random DCIM subfolders, which are changing their names (that's really weird!) every time reconnecting the iPhone to the PC. The good news: I found out that every subfolder includes photos from a certain month only. However, the random subfolder file names (3 digits, 5 ...

The Other Birthday entries are collected from the Contacts, not from a Calendar. In the Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars screen, how many accounts do you have with Contacts enabled? It will create a Birthday calendar entry under Other for each account, even if there are no contacts with birthdays entered.

My Battery Usage indicates that the Home and Lock Screen are using 30% of the battery check how quickly it's set to autolock. shorten it to one minute for a week and see if that changes anything. if it's sitting at lock screen for a long time, it might as well just be dimmed and locked.

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".

Since iOS 7 all iDevices now are equipped with Activation Lock, triggered by Find My iPhone. Once locked, only the original owner, or Apple themselves can bypass it. When you enable Find My iPhone on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, your Apple ID is securely stored on Apple’s activation servers and linked to your device. From that point on, your password ...

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.

When you enable automatic downloads, your iPhone will download new content over every WiFi network. I believe that it will also download over your data connection when not connected to wifi. But only when the files the iPhone tries to download are below 10 MB.

I think what you mean can be found under settings> general. There's a function called, I think, Automatic Lock. You can automatically lock your iphone after: 1 minute 2 minutes 3 minutes 4 minutes 5 minutes Never

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 ...

I think iOS 8 will be the last ios the iphone 4s will support. Apple said that there will be more software updates before that should add better preformance and new functions to the system.

I have the same problem. Max life is 12 hours and very very little use. It goes down by 5% per hour!!! Apple said battery fine and I should only expect 10 to 12 hrs. Back several iOS ago I could get well over 24 hours. Sounds like the want to force us to get new iPhones 6.

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, ...

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.

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.
