I understand your frustration with this issue! When you edit a photo on iOS, it keeps the original and creates a text file with an .aae extension containing instructions of the changes/edits made to the original file. iOS renders the original file per .aae file which makes it look like it’s an additional image. The Photos & Lightroom MacOS applications ...

I've been plagued with the same annoying recurring problem. Very time-consuming to have to Cursor over and delete the duplicated text. I checked my accessibility and it was already set to voice control off. I dug a bit further and there is a second section, customize commands > that has multiple options. At the bottom of the list is “accessibility “. When ...

Don't do it! iOS 13 breaks the iPhone 6s in important ways. Mail doesn't work properly. Some messages don't download at all, mail retrieval is very slow, and sometimes only the message header is downloaded. Battery life is reduced by about 25 percent (my guesstimate, I have to hook up a charger at least three times a day). The new sharing UI is ...

I think you will find that going to ‘General’, Home screen and dock’ then ’show suggested and recent apps in dock’ may help you.

FWIW, this just happened to me. Had auto updates turned off, kinda freaked me out. Turned out, in my case, I had enabled “offload unused apps” to free up space - got a feeling this might be why all my apps needed re-downloading. Not sure if “re-downloading” == “upgrade”.

Here's a different Applescript that I wrote, which works for me. With this you can just select a photo in Photos and run the script, without adding the photo to a new album.

The merging of message-threads with the same contact was introduced in iOS 12. But Apple didn’t officially announce it, what caused a lot of confusion, because sometimes it also merged different contacts: Forbes: Apple iOS 12 Has An Embarrassing Problem

Had exactly the same problem in macos Catalina v10.15.2 and Photos v5.0 (121.17.170). I had tagged one photo with one new person and I waited days for more pictures of that person to be discovered.

After consulting with Apple it turns out that Automatic sync should happen every time the phone plugs into the computer while iTunes is running None of my the iTunes installations did this on macOS or Windows, which is an error To work around this required manually syncing a folder with a photo in it to the phone, on both windows and macOS separately. ...

Your app icon is displayed in many places, including in Finder, the Dock, Launchpad, and the App Store. To ensure that your app icon looks great everywhere people see it, provide it in the following sizes. 512px × 512px (512pt × 512pt @1x) 1024px × 1024px (512pt × 512pt @2x) https://developer.apple.com/design/human-interface-guidelines/...

You must actively encrypt sensitive data. This is the only way you can reliably manage the risk involved. Every iOS application's data is stored within a container. In theory only your application and the operating system can access the contents of this container. You can opt for the operating system to handle the encryption for your app: Encrypting ...

It appears that the sound volumes are closely related, but you can change the tones you have selected (at least for text messages and alerts).

There is no built-in means to secure only web browsers on iOS with a passcode that wouldn't also affect the entire device. Consider erasing the iPhone and enrolling it in an MDM, or mobile device manager, such as Jamf Now. To proceed, you'll need to use Apple's free Configuration Manager 2. While you can enroll an iOS device into an MDM (not just Jamf) ...

The short answer is no because it is generated from a lot of variables. As per Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UDID) [on] devices introduced between 2007 and 2018 it was represented as a 40-digit lowercase hex code, and for device models introduced after 2018, as a 25-digit uppercase hex code.

The answer depends on what you mean by "making the same app for iPad". If you mean that you're going to take the app (its source code) and make it compatible with both the iPhone and the iPad at the same time - and then publish that on the App Store for both platforms - then yes, you can do that. When you change your Info.plist to indicate that you support ...

Yes, if you ask it to, either by enabling backups of allowing it to share it with another app that does. Can Apple see the information? We don’t know.

Unfortunately, no. You can look on Wikipedia and see the oldest generation iPod that goes past iOS 9 is the 6th generation. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IPod_Touch_(6th_generation) See if your web browser can stream podcasts while you decide what to do. Apple support pages are a good resource as well for what hardware supports which iOS.

The screenshot you showed is for iOS simulator runtimes. The data you are asking about is the dylib cache for your iPhone, which Xcode copies from the device.

That should prevent it from being used for development in ...

See: Tombstone (data store). In brief, a tombstone is a token in a distributed data storage system that gets put in place when a record is deleted. It's needed for synchronizing different stores on the distributed system. For example, if record 'A' is deleted on one store, when the system tries to sync it may see another copy of record 'A' on a different ...

If you have a jailbroken iOS/iPadOS device, you can use the command "lsof" to find out which process has that specific port open. You would run it like this: lsof -n -iTCP It would list ports that the process has open with the mark "(LISTEN)" at the end. Outgoing connections would be marked differently depending on their state, typically "(ESTABLISHED)", "...

There might be a chance that the service provider is enhancing the network due to which their is tempariorly discrepeancy.

Yes - that is absolutely possible. No there aren’t different chips or antennas, but physical damage could alter the antenna length and the chip could be damaged or another frequency leaking which makes reception on the 4G data rate impossible. Without debug logs or a signal tracker or opening the iPhone, you only have empirical testing or trying to erase / ...

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 ...

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 ...

In general: Yes, as this article (and others) suggest. But it always depends on the exact keyboard. If you can't find results on google for your exact model, you can only find out by testing it. If you try it, I would recommend using a usb-converter with both a USB & Lightning port, mainly for this reason: You’ll want the connection kit I linked ...

As far as I know: Not really. All you can do is to jailbreak it - as @Nimesh Neema suggested -, which is usually done to do some customization of iOS. It shouldn't allow you to install apps that require a newer iOS, yet you can install apps outside of the AppStore. I am pretty sure though, what you are looking for, does not exist.

Yes. Once Apple approves your app it moves to a “Pending Developer Release” status and stays there until you (the developer) approves its release.

Is it possible to submit the update for review, but not have it released immediately after it gets approved Yes. It's possible to do so. When submitting your app for review on App Store Connect, simply select the option to manually release the app instead of automatically release. This way, once the app is approved by Apple, it is kept at hold for release ...

This happens because someone, that also is in your contact list, tries to enter a password for the WiFi network your device is connected to.

It is possible to convert synced photos to camera roll. The Apple Community post "Syncing" Photos from iTunes into Camera Roll shows how.

If the developer didn’t program the hooks to receive a forward, you cannot accomplish this. Contact the developer or choose another app that has that feature. If the developer enabled this, the mechanics are easy to curate your list of share destinations: Tap share, swipe to the right end and tap “more” for shifting the order of apps, and also enabling/...
