You have a few options. Restore from backup to another iPhone. If you do not have access to another iPhone, but have a backup file through iTunes locally on your computer, there are applications that can process those backup files. You may have success in browsing through them. If you were using iCloud, then your contacts may have been syncing there. Login ...

At some point somebody used your Apple ID on one of their devices (either OSX or iOS), or their Apple ID on one of your devices. Or, somebody might have connected your or their iPhone in your or their iTunes in the past. And things got mixed up. If you don't have a local iTunes backup, there's not too much you can do to recover. And if you have a local ...

I contacted Apple, and they told me to go into Settings, turn off Location Services, reboot, and then turn Location Services back on. Go straight to the Weather app to allow it to refresh. This fixed the issue for me on my devices, and they don't work perfectly, but they are much more reliable than before.

It looks like I MAY have finally worked this out. What has fixed it (for now) for me, and doesn't seem to have been mentioned before, is the button for Settings... on iTunes on my Mac, when my iPhone is connected, next to the Autofill button. Connect your iPhone to your Mac, and click on the icon for the phone. Click on Music on the On My Device menu on the ...

You can use iTunes to restore the device to the last shipping OS. You could also delete the beta profile and keep the same OS. There's not much preventing you from keeping the beta updates as well. Really - there's no downside to inheriting a device with beta other than you want to decide now before you put your data on it. You generally can't restore a ...

The reason for USB tethering not working is in 99% cases bad iPhone driver - yes, even on OS X. It may sound weird, but going to http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and re-installing iTunes from the latest iTunes installer will probably solve the issue for you. Sometimes the driver can get corrupted during a system update etc. Give it a shot and report ...

This happened to me I gave my husband my old apple 5s but didn't wipe it clean first. He deleted 3-400 of my contacts in a 1 hour period since they were still using the same iCloud account. From experience I now know to rest the old phone to factory default and set it up that users own Apple ID. Problem solved except couldn't recover my contacts since a new ...

Check to make sure there's not any lint buildup in the Lightning port. Get a wooden or plastic toothpick (do not use anything metallic) and clean the port out, swiping from one edge to the other, then pulling out any bunched up lint or dust. Even a small amount of buildup will prevent the accessory from fully seating properly, sometimes generating a "This ...

Loved this post, I used it to make photos think my bursts weren't bursts. Useful when you've picked out all the photos you want and have to import them back in. This script (all it does is ensure all burst photos have a unique uuid) needs exiftools installed on a mac. You can probably run it on windows with a few changes.... #!/bin/bash #move files in a ...

I had the same problem, I had to turn on Location services and turn off my VPN. The app worked fine after that.

About the closest thing that could reasonably be expected to the iPhone being "hacked" would be the thief guessing the passcode, and since you said you have a strong passcode, that probably won't happen. Because of this, you may as well hold off on wiping it; if the thief ever turns it back on you will see it in Find My iPhone and may have a chance of ...

If you sync both iPad and iPhone you will receive alerts in both the devices. While, deleting messages and conversations has to be done on each individual device separately so deleting is not synchronised.

I am having the same problem too. I could solve it if I turned off my Outlook sync of contacts and just used a local copy. Then once I tuned the Outlook sync back on, Siri again said there were no numbers for that person. I ended up creating a new contact with the first name and last name the same, with the same phone number as the original contact and that ...

The clerk at the Verizon store was an idiot. Getting your stuff from the old iPhone to the new is simple but not automatic. Back up your old iPhone to your computer (encrypt the backup so it saves passwords) Plug your new unused iPhone into your computer and when prompted by iTunes restore from backup. Use the backup you just made from your old iPhone. ...

In Settings, visit "Mail, Contacts Calendars." Scroll down and select "Fetch New Data." Then, on that screen, temporarily turn on "Push," and then make sure iCloud is also set to push, so that new data is pushed from the server automatically whenever possible. This should push through any new data immediately. You may then want to switch Push off for data, ...

You get all the currency symbols except the Baht for free on the US keyboard. Press and hold the $ symbol and you'll see all the alternates.

Similarly, you can use this answer to make shortcuts if you ...

I think the Custom Label field is only visible for contacts on GMail, as opposed to on iCloud. Go to Settings → Mail Contacts, Calendars → Contacts / Default Account and set it to your gmail account. For the contacts you create now, they'll be saved on GMail and the Custom Label field will be available.

Apple does not allow developers to interact with the internal NFC chip at this moment. Currently the only extendable Apple SDK for this type of system is Wallet (formerly PassBook). If your local transport station has an option to scan barcodes you can use third party tools to add your transportation pass barcode to Wallet.

I know for a fact that the iPhone 5s will not handle group video calls in terms of video (audio only), but that shouldn't happen when skyping with one person.
