comment Why does iOS sync cause a full transfer of my music and artwork?
The point @fbara was making was it's not clear how to answer. Yes - you observed something and speculated about a possible cause/symptom/link - but it's not clear what you want to do or what level of research or depth you're looking to know. It's not about how rare something is - but how "answerable" it might be based on concrete details you add to the question per How to Ask

comment No space even though I deleted things
Of the 50 apps you deleted - how much space were they taking? Lots of small apps won't help if you have data syncing down from iCloud or photos and that will fill more space than you free up.

comment Xcode 7 develop for iOS without developer account
You might have to clean out old signing identities. You can test that by making a new user account and try Xcode without the old keychain if you want to avoid cleaning certs, @AlxVallejo

comment One line weather output from terminal
Are you struggling to pick out the results from a correct download or are you needing help identifying a source to download? Why not edit this to show the exact site you've chosen to run from curl or wget if you just need help with awk or cut to strip out the parts you don't want to see.

comment Unable to account for 23.6 GB of disk space
If you run a command like sudo du -sm /Users/* that will let you know all the allocations on user home folders. You can run that from Recovery HD to avoid false reporting or external mounts - but that's an oddball situation. Are you averse to using a tool like DaisyDisk that can run as administrator / root so that you can get a better picture with one scan than needing to juggle 6 runs of the program you are using

comment How to whitelist an ip address on a macbook?
This will need a little edit to make clear some things. I'm guessing you need to bypass or circumvent restrictions on a work computer or work network to gain access to your IP address / resources running in your home setting. Does the home network have a fixed IP address? How is the home network set up? Why not set up a VPN? Is this about networking or about restrictions on a work OS/computer - if so - what details are relevant there?

comment Appstore, turn off password for free apps download?
The App Store behaves differently on OS X and Windows and iOS so it's not clear what device you hope to manage or if you are asking if there is a cloud setting to disable it on your account

comment ios mail wont open zip files
Nice edit. Feel free to use the <contact us> link to merge the accounts if that helps you. Do you think it's a timing issue where Mail doesn't download the whole attachment until after you click it - or more a bug in the code?

comment Backing up data
How long does the script take? Are you looking to minimize the time to upload or for suggestions for a fuller featured tool like Arq? arqbackup.com If you describe in detail what a fix looks like, it's more likely someone will have a relevant idea.

comment Deleted .aae files and now the related photos are gone
Welcome to Ask Different. Why not restore your phone from a backup? Are you looking to do data recovery or just wipe the camera roll and start over? By editing this to narrow down what you intend to do, it's far more likely someone will offer an answer.

What functionality is lost when deleting one IPA from that folder? What is lost when you delete all files from that folder?

comment DIY repaired iPhone won't boot fully - flashes Apple logo when powered via USB
Basically Xcode and/or iTunes are designed to install the OS so they get involved with managing the storage before iOS even starts to load. You get hundreds of messages in a normal boot when iOS hardware shows the Apple logo and no text or diagnostic messages

I'll put that in the answer as an edit just in case someone misses it here. I'm glad you've gotten it sorted out.

comment 10.11 Installation on old Macs
Those models support network boot and USB boot. Apple hasn't released a product that won't USB boot for well over a decade. Even PowerPC Macs booted over USB when the "official" support wasn't declared. You might have other problems - need to reset NVRAM or worse - if neither net boot or USB boot work, @SebastianSemmler

comment App Store - are “legal contract” kind of apps permitted?
It's quite relevant here. SO really doesn't want any Apple Service questions from what I can tell. We don't like code questions here - but this is about the service Apple provides which is explicitly on topic. Perhaps the close vote is due to feeling it's soft or unresearched. I felt the question was good enough to merit thinking about a response. :-)
