There's a good chance you bought a stolen iPhone. I'd bring it to an Apple Store or contact Apple support: How to Contact Us - Apple If it hasn't been reported as stolen, maybe they'll be able to help you. I would not expect that anyone here knows the answer to this. Even if there was such an exploit, knowledge of it could make a person quite wealthy. ...

So it looks like this is impossible. Yes, Notes does support IMAP and this can be set up by adding an Email account to iOS (or macOS) and checking "Notes" there. However those kind of Notes are handicapped: you can't draw there with Apple Pencil, can't use any markdown like tables/bullets. Basically it is just Text and (image) attachments, making this ...

First you enable iCloud and all the services that you want to backup (for most it's all the checkboxes). During the night the iPhones makes an iCloud backup for that day. So if you were to restore the iPhone, in setup process you could either choose to setup as new, backup from Mac or backup from the iCloud. If you choose iCloud, you would get everything ...

There used to be a statement in the iCloud Terms and Conditions Version from March 1, 2017 (Internet Archive Link) that "iCloud will store your last three backups" (for a device). However, this statement has been removed as of 2020. The Terms now only say that "If a device has not backed up to iCloud for a period of one hundred and eighty (180) days, Apple ...

If CleanMyMac is going to remove the files from their present location, then yes, they will be removed from your Photos Library. You would be better off going to "About This Mac" under the apple menu, and on the Storage tab, click "Manage". Then click on "Store in iCloud", and select Photos. As a general rule, I avoid all apps that claim to 'clean', '...

I had the same issue on my new MacBook Pro, Catalina 10.15.2, and resetting my keychain didn't help. After speaking to support the issue had something to do with my network filtering and it worked after connecting to my phone hotspot. They also asked me to create another admin user and try logging in there but that didn't work either.

I don't know why this changed, but right now instead of saving on my Desktop only it saves in iCloud/Desktop only Hit cmd + shift + 5 > Options and change the screenshot save location.

Looks to me like two issues: Why do you have two Desktop folders? On my machine - and I strongly assume, this is how its supposed to be - I have one Dektop folder, which is located in iCloud. Thats also where the screenshots for example go. Trying to delete them Where did you delete them? Also in the trash can? "Remove Download" only removes the item ...

From what I understand, "Recents" are recently accessed files. I have disabled this function on my system. If you have backed up you drive or some folder(s) to iCloud in some way then I would suspect the using "iCloud Drive" instead of "Recents" could give you the folder structure containing you backed up. At this point these are just semi-educational ...

I've been hunting around for solutions to this for a few hours. You want to use this tool that is designed specifically to download WhatsApp backups from iCloud and decrypt them (along with a great explanation of what's going on here): https://blog.elcomsoft.com/2017/07/extract-and-decrypt-whatsapp-backups-from-icloud/

Choose File > Open Library > New. In the Save dialog that appears, type a name for the new library, and navigate to the location where you want to save it. The default location is the Movies folder in your home folder. Click Save. A new library is created in the location you chose, and a new, empty event with today’s date is created. ...

Open Finder. Click on iCloud Drive. Right-click on the folder you want to remove its downloaded content, and then click on Remove Download. However, you wouldn't see the "Remove Download" option for app folders. For instance, as in your image, you can't right-click on the Numbers folder and then click on Remove Download. Instead, you have to open the ...

This is trivial to do from the Mac version of Photos. I don’t know of a way to set it up on the iPad or iPhone, but once you have your smart Album, it’s easy to delete all the photos that match the criteria selected for that album. Note, this smart album syncs to your iPad and iPhone so you can take action there in addition to Mac photos. On the mac, once ...

If I understand things, you wish to walk away from the “old email” entirely - lose all cloud data, lose all purchases and make a new iCloud / AppleID on your new email. If so, you’re going to need a few things and some luck or a call to Apple Support. Here are some limitations. If your device is activation locked, you can’t walk away from the old iCloud - ...

macOS Catalina (10.15) includes new functionalities that allow selective sync on iCloud. In the context menu, accessible by right clicking on a file / folder in iCloud, there are two new options: Remove Download: the selected item(s) will be removed from your device, while remaining in iCloud. Download Now: download previously removed files from iCloud.

You'll need to change the notification behavior (disable) in Google Calendar. On your computer, open Google Calendar. In the top right, click Settings Settings and then Settings.

This issue appeared with macOS Catalina for me, and only if I have the Mail app open without an internet connection. Going to Mail->Window->Connection Doctor->ShowDetail, it looks like there's an infinite loop running, which tries to connect to the mail server. The only temporal solutions are to either disable the account which is causing trouble (via ...

Since I ran into the same issue, I had to research this as well. From what I found, this seems to be normal. After a library repair, each photo is being verified against the iCloud library copy. This Apple support document 1 states: If you repair a library that's automatically updated with iCloud Photos, the entire contents of the library re-updates with ...

So, I was facing the same problem and it was super bugging me. I have "kind of a fix": instead of uploading the book through Mac OS, do it on the iPhone. Delete the book from all devices and iCloud. Put the .epub or .pdf file in a folder on iCloud (just like any other file, like on the Documents folder) Click on it on your iPhone. It will open Books and ...

The menubar app Bailiff lets your pin files on your drive and evict them without needing to wait for the background processes to do the work for you. https://eclecticlight.co/cirrus-bailiff/ Once you’ve got the files removed, you still need to wait for snapshots to purge.

I have the exact same issue with my ipad, os version 12.4.4 very frustrating. Tried everything suggested above and some more, nothing helps. Even worse, I just experienced the same issue with the Kindle app so it might be a more general problem related to how the os manages/optimizes local content storage (I have 5gb+ storage left so it’s a bug, not a ...

Switch to another calendar app if you wish, but you can continue using the iOS Calendar app since Time Zone Override is a function of iOS Settings.

Most third party calendar tools on iOS offer this. I can really recommend fantastical, which offers the option you're looking for. See this site. Time Zone Override: When enabled, Fantastical will always show dates and times in the selected time zone. When disabled, Fantastical 2 will use the time zone configured in iOS's Settings app. This option is ...

If you equate giving apple your password to typing the admin credentials, then you can’t do this without a privilege escalation / security vulnerability.

Unless they somehow made it to the recently deleted photos, they are probably gone. Just make sure you don't have an iCloud backup on your phone. Settings > tap your name at top > iCloud > iCloud Backups.

If I had a device that was doing this, I would use my developer account to load a specific profile that enables debug logs and see if I could parse if this is a certificate error / date error / server side condition. https://developer.apple.com/bug-reporting/profiles-and-logs/?platform=ios If you have Xcode, you could look at the normal console logs as ...

The only way would be the old-fashioned - go look for it, ask others if they've seen it, etc. You don't specify what you mean by "signing into the phone" except that it is not iCloud, you've signed into. If the service you did sign into (for example Facebook Messenger?) does have some kind of location tracking, it might give you a last known position. If ...

Your photo library is independent of the photo stream. So is opting in to iCloud storage of your photo library. The only overlap is if you import items from the photo stream into the library. Deleting an item from the photo stream does not delete it from any library so it's safe to delete if you're sure you already have it imported or never want it imported....

I suggest that you have a separate folder on an external drive for all photos as a backup. I do this and even if I make a mistake between any device and iCloud I still have the originals. When it warns you that the photos will be removed across all devices then it is best to believe it and make sure.

I have Photo Fixer Pro and guessing the lite version you have may have a limit. My icloud photos have over 80,570 photos and videos and if I scan weeks to months it scans way over 30,000 my first try it crashed because I have so many but it scanned 53,204 the first time until I narrow my search down.

Photos for Mac seems to perform some kind of bandwidth test before uploading. I was stuck at: Uploading 130 items for hours while at my in-laws' place with an older DSL connection. No upload progress. Laptop plugged in, Photos in foreground and then background, restarted, all photo analysis daemons restarted, etc. When I brought the MacBook home to my ...

It's a radical way to solve it, but that's how I did it. Export the bookmarks.HTML using File menu in Safari. Then start cleaning up the bookmarks, reading list and favourites from all the devices. On Macs it's easy to do using "Edit bookmarks" and right-click on an item on reading list to clear all. How to clear ALL items from Safari's reading list? ...

I noticed this problem a while ago, but didn't dig into it until now. I am using iOS 13.3 and trying to get tabs from 10.13.6. The Apple support page clarifies what should work and what will not work: iCloud Tabs works between devices running iOS 13 or iPadOS and macOS Mojave 10.14.4 or later, or between devices running iOS 12 or earlier and macOS ...

You need to get those books on iPhone via methods other than iCloud sync to keep them there with sync off. Use airdrop to get the books onto iPhone, open them with Books app and then you can turn off sync and books won't get deleted. That's how, I understand, it works.

A little late to respond, but on Catalina I had the same problem and resolved by opening the app store, signing in there, and then enabling 2-factor authentication in system preferences. Shortly after I was able to successfully login to icloud as well.

Alternatively, create an Outlook account and install on each iPad the OneDrive app. Turn on each iPad the OneDrive Camera upload to ON. This might be the solution to your problem.

You can use the camera connector ( https://www.apple.com/au/shop/product/MK0W2AM/A/lightning-to-usb-3-camera-adapter ) + 30 pin cable (the one that fits your older iPad) + lightning cable (the cable for your new iPad). Camera connector goes to your iPad. Use the extra lightning slot to provide power to the iPad/connector. Use your 30 pin cable from the ...

Create another column in Transactions. Put the VLOOKUP in that column. So then you have the miles for each one: 3.4, 2.9, 3.4, 3.4, 9.1. Then in another cell, use SUM(D2:D6) to add those up. If you don't want that column visible you can always hide it.

Yes, but with some limitations Checkm8 Software, while awkwardly named, is able to bypass the Activation Lock Screen by exploiting its namesake vulnerability. Note that the software can only temporary bypass the activation lock and thus provide one-time access to the system.

If you did a "Erase All Content and Settings" - then you have definitely logged the device out of your iCloud account. This function deletes everything stored on the phone, including accounts, app settings, app data, the apps themselves, documents, photos, etc. If you had "Find My iPhone" enabled, the buyer of your phone would not be able to setup the phone ...
