That's the "handoff" feature. You can turn it off at: Settings > General > Handoff. When you turn it off, that device can't send or receive handoffs. A little bit more info. You could also use a different iCloud account on your phone/iPad if you wanted handoff to work between a Mac and one device but not both iOS devices, but more than one iCloud is ...

It seems that you have to log out of the whole Apple ID account completely and then sign-in into the individual services like the App store, iMessage etc whichever one wants to use. There is no option to individually sign-out of the iCloud https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208242 https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204025

Astonishingly the error had nothing to do with the "song not being available in my country or region," but simply was because the song had not yet loaded into the iCloud Music Library. I clicked on File, Library, Update iCloud Music Library, and after about 5 minutes, the song was available on my other devices.

The recovery key absolutely isn’t stored locally by Apple, so you either need a safe place to store it where you won’t lose it or Apple will help store it for you to recover later when you choose to unlock the Mac by reading the key from iCloud. in a nutshell, your iCloud password gets you your key back instead of you needing to choose where to store it (...

Take a look at iCloud Photos Downloader it is a command line interface for iCloud Photos based on Python. To install, you can type pip install icloudpd should the requirement of Python 2.7.x or 3.6.x be met. If you use Python 2.6.x will fail. If you require Python, I reccomend using Homebrew Package Manager, which is known for being easy to install ...

Since Apple is not capable and even don't want to solve this issue there is only one solution. you have to use Google Photos. App is also available in appstore

A backup is just a copy of data on your iPhone, yes. However some types of data on your phone are not stored in iCloud Backup, but rather in other parts of iCloud or similar services. This includes for example photos in iCloud Photos, files in iCloud Drive, and Contacts, Calendars, Bookmarks, Mail, Notes, Health Data and Voice Memos in iCloud. Deleting a ...

ProGrammer's answer is correct from my previous experience with Apple. But you can request a note attached to your Apple account stating that a device with that serial number was stolen. When the device is brought to the Apple Store for repair and the Apple employee enters the serial number, it will show up as stolen. Some Apple representatives will not ...

This is possible (requiring no interaction), however you need to make sure that "Optimize Mac Storage" is not enabled and that all your files are downloaded. If they're not downloaded, they won't get backed up.

According to Apple: If you AirDrop content to yourself, like share a photo from your iPhone to your Mac, you won't see an option to Accept or Decline. The content is automatically sent to that device. Just make sure that both devices are signed in with the same Apple ID. AirDrop is working as designed. I don't think you need to worry about someone ...

Yes, your computer/ iPhone will ask to accept if another Apple ID sends something. I am not sure of Family Sharing.

I bought a new iPad Pro and after recovering from backup I got the same problem: files saved from iPad to iCloud Drive were not syncing along with Notability not syncing notes created on iPad. I tried setting it up as new and rebooting it - didn’t work. What solved the problem is signing off iCloud account and removing the data from all the devices assigned ...

This should be the correct format. Spaces are not 'allowed', but escaped by a preceding backslash that wouldn't be visible in Finder. To verify, use the exact path and add a cd  (note the space character that's usually killed by SE-rendering) before it, press enter, and find yourself at the location in Terminal. Alternatively, precede it with open  and see ...

I've been through similar issues (not the same issue ... but iCloud weirdness that I couldn't pin to any device). Turns out it is possible to wedge iCloud even though all your local devices are ok. The fix: Take backups of everything you can (your computer, phone, iPad, etc.) Go to each device you own and log out of iCloud It is critically important ...

TL;DR: call 800-275-2273 for AppleCare; otherwise: If adding events to the calendar in iCloud.com isn't working properly, it is much less likely that the issue is coming from your devices. Signing in and out on devices re-writes local files that maintain the calendar and deal with incoming or outgoing sync data. Just in case, have you restarted all your ...

Short answer: it's not possible at present time to export vcard via Apple icloud procedure "Export Vcard". In addition: I've investigated the Vcard standard and the property PHOTO is supported in Vcard standard since v2.0 and also v3.0. The vcf export in iCloud contacts doesn't include the PHOTO property. I've contacted Apple that blindly states Vcard v3....

You should turn off Optimise iCloud storage in System Preferences-> iCloud -> iCloud Drive options, before you try to copy files as per the other answer. Since you have a lot of storage(paid version), trying to copy partially downloaded files can be a mess. Other way can be to use https://privacy.apple.com. It lets you download selected information ...

There's really no definitive answer to this as a lot comes down to network speeds, bandwidth, what else you're currently doing with the device, and so on. That is why you're finding that "Googling online it says it can take 1-4 hours per gb to restore from an iCloud backup" - because there's just too many variables involved. In fact, there are places in the ...

You could use the finder and open two windows. Then go to iCloud, select the files you want to copy and drag them to the external drive. Then once they are all copied over, select them again and deleted them.

The short answer is via iCloud Drive. Your WhatsApp backup(s) are stored in a hidden folder of iCloud Drive on your MacBook (if you signed into iCloud and turned on iCloud Drive). To find your WhatsApp backup(s): Launch Terminal (in /Applications/Utilities folder) Type the following commands cd ~/Library/Mobile\ Documents/ find *whatsapp* You should see ...

it's year 2019 and I encountered the same problem on iOS 12.4. Here is how I solved it just now: Goto Apple ID > iCloud > Photos; Turn on iCloud Photos. There will be a popup prompting insufficient icloud space; Press the "upgrade plan" (or something similar, I can't remember the exact words) in the popup, then a new window shows with several icloud plans; ...

If you have ran a backup using iCloud while on iOS 13, and you don't have iTunes, there is unfortunately nothing you can do. If you have iTunes, you could restore from an old backup if you have one, or you can set up as a brand new phone on iOS 12.3 if you download the .ipsw file for your phone model and correct iOS.

The way I solved that issue is to logoff and login from icloud and turn plane mode on for 30s. See https://discussions.apple.com/thread/8246057.

You can share it with yourself simply by sending it too yourself, either via email or messages, then copy the link. Apple really should make it easier to copy the link, for personal use. Or: Here’s How and Why to Share Apple Notes With Yourself

This is likely due to iCloud's end-to-end encryption. According to Apple's iCloud security overview: End-to-end encryption provides the highest level of data security. Your data is protected with a key derived from information unique to your device, combined with your device passcode, which only you know. To access your data on a new device, you ...

Thanks for the suggestions. I was finally able to get my notes. After backing up my old laptop to a hard drive, I signed off of iCloud. I then signed in to iCloud on my new laptop and it gave me a screen where I could uncheck Documents and data. So I unchecked those. After hitting Next it brought me into iCloud where I could individually add what I wanted ...

After calling Apple support they spent 30 trying to help me with this problem but couldn’t. I ended up figuring it out. In the settings update the date and time and time zone then restart your pc. Try to log in afterwards and it should work.
