comment How do I get my iPhone's entire text history, accessible from my computer?
I'm pretty sure that using an iTunes backup is the only way to do this short of jailbreaking the phone (and then manually grabbing the same files that you would get out of the backup directly from the phone.)

comment How does iCloud Keychain store unsecured wifi hotspot information?
True, it's likely that they are (replacing my previous comment above with this one.) Page 27 of the document they released today about iCloud security - ssl.apple.com/privacy/docs/iOS_Security_Guide_Sept_2014.pdf shows that it's used for other parts of the keychain sync. They don't specifically document how the (unencrypted) WiFi networks are synced, though.

iCloud may not be getting that specific file, but it's getting some of the data from it, at least. Apple doesn't publicly document how iCloud or Keychain Sync works, so there is no way to know for sure without reverse engineering it (the sync operation is basically a black box.) It would probably be necessary to set up an SSL proxy to examine the packets coming into/out of your Mac and also running a root-level process to log all filesystem access to see what it's actually doing (and that still wouldn't tell you how Apple stores it on their end although you might see what is being sent.)

comment Continuity not supported to / from my iPad?
Apparently it only works on devices that support AirDrop. While there's no reason why that shouldn't work with an iPad 3 (it has all of the necessary hardware, including Bluetooth Low Energy), Apple routinely excludes older devices from newer features to encourage upgrading to new hardware.

comment Is it possible to read iBooks without an iOS device?
No such announcement was made today at the Apple event, so the answers remains as 'No' for now.

comment What happens after an iOS magazine subscription is canceled?
Thanks. I'll post an update once the subscription month is up along with the results of what happened. (I had posted my question hoping that someone had already tried this.)
